Oh-wee-oh, oh
Groove, uh
Drop out the horns, let's go

It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night
U got ur world 2gether
Everything's lookin' alright
2night there's no 2morrow
This is gonna B the 1 (Alright Paris, we gon' see how funky U R)
2night we're gonna lose our sorrow (R U ready?)
2night we're gonna have some fun (C'mon, say it)

Oh-wee-oh, oh
It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night, oh
(Keep singin, y'all)
It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night, oh
(Paris, clap ur hands)

Little boy got the notion
Get some love 2night
U better get yo rap N motion
'4 she out o' sight
Little girl at the party
Maybe she'd like 2 dance
Ring around the rosie
Pocket full of chance (Paris, R U ready? Horns, do it)

Oh-wee-oh, oh (Sing it, y'all)
It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night, oh
Yeah
It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night, oh
(Guitars & drums, groove)

(Paris, c'mon)
They say that there's nothing better
Than sleepin' on a rainy day
We could spend the night 2gether
Come on, baby, what U say? (Ooh)

It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night, oh {repeat}
It's gonna B a beautiful, beautiful night (Sing it)

No time 4 politics
No, we don't wanna fight
Everybody get up
It's gonna B a beautiful night
No time 4 sorrow
This is gonna B the 1
2night there's no 2morrow
2night we're gonna have some fun (R U ready, Paris? C'mon) (Ow!)

Oh-wee-oh, oh (Say it, y'all)
It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night, oh (C'mon)
Whoo! Uh
It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night, oh (2 times)
We R beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night {repeat}
(Sing, Paris, 1 more time)

Oh-wee-oh (Say it, huh)
It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night, oh
Relax, y'all, yeah
Whoo!
It's gonna B a beautiful, it's gonna B a beautiful night, oh
(Just the drums... Bobby)
Oh-wee-oh, oh {repeat}

Everybody get way down
2night we're gonna ball
2night we're gonna get the bomb, y'all
'm talkin' about the Detroit crawl
Whoo!
Everybody N the west
Everybody N the east
When 'm mad, 'll getcha
With my chicken grease, get wit it
Whoo! Uh
(1 more)
R U ready, Paris? Soul clap

Ah yeah, ah yeah
Gimme the bass, gimme the bass 1 time

Said the Table 2 the Chair
"U can hardly B aware
How suffer from the heat
& from chilblains on my feet"
"If we took a little walk
We might have a little talk
Pray let us take the air"
Said the Table 2 the Chair (Can't nobody fuck with us)
Said the Chair un2 the Table
"Now U know we R not able
How foolishly U talk
When U know we cannot walk"
Said the Table with a sigh
"It can do no harm 2 try (Can't nobody fuck with us)
've as many legs as U
Y can't we walk on 2?"
So they both went slowly down
& walked about the town (Say can't nobody fuck with us)
With a cheerful bumpy sound
As they toddled round & round
& everybody cried
As they hastened 2 their side (Can't nobody fuck with us)
"C! The Table & the Chair
Have come 2 take the air" (Paris, y'all say it, y'all)
But N going down an alley
2 a castle N the valley
They completely lost their way
& wandered all the day
Till, 2 C them safely back
They paid a Ducky-quack
& a Beetle & a Mouse
Who took them 2 their house
Then they whispered 2 each other
"O delightful little brother
What a lovely walk we've taken
Let us dine on Beans & Bacon" (Can't nobody fuck with us)
So the Ducky & the leetle
Browny-Mousey & the Beetle (Say it, y'all)
Dined & danced upon their heads
Till they toddled 2 their beds
Good God, uh

What?
Ooh
Revolution, break it way down low
Beautiful night, y'all say it
Oh, beautiful night, y'all say it
Say what, beautiful night, y'all say it
Yeah, beautiful night, y'all say it
C'mon, oh-wee-oh, oh
Say it
Say it loud, y'all
Say it loud, y'all
Miko, Miko
Hit me N the back, fellas

Beautiful night, y'all say it
It's gonna B a beautiful night, y'all say it
Everybody feels alright, y'all say it
It's gonna B a beautiful night, y'all say it
Everybody, oh-wee-oh, oh
Say it, oh-wee-oh, oh
Say it
Give me the horns again
Keep singin', y'all
Yeah
Everybody clap ur hands
Everybody clap ur hands
Everybody groove, c'mon, whoo!
Ooh
Confusion!
Yeah!
