Mmm... (Keep it nice & quiet)
What the hell was that? (Mmm...)
Hey yo, thought we bust this new hype b4
All across the land (C'mon man, don't y'all know who U talkin' 2?)
(New dance commercial - take 2)
Río Marbella, ha
We gettin' stupid, ha
Germany, Paris, France
We gettin' stupid
Yeah, Stockholm, Sweden
We love ya

Let me shed
It's easier said, code red (Whoo)
Bust a new groove just hyped 4 the jughead
Bass thumpin'
Everybody's doin the bumpin'
Oops, slipped up on a move
think it's time 2 bust somethin'
Sleazy but cool & easy (Is this the right 1?)
Yeah, this is 4 the 'hood
Better keep it greasy
Better yet on a smooth tip
don't wanna sweat
want my slimmie 2 get with this
Move ur head & shoulders from side 2 side (Whoo)
Take ur back foot & then U let it slide (Yeah, get busy)
Yo, N a fade motion
Lots of attitude, coast 2 coast
Then U'r floatin'
Homeboys boastin'
U made his skeeze freeze (Haha...)

There's a bit of hesitation (Hey)
This is some new hype stuff U'r facin'

U could say 'm on a roll
NPG N, y'all, & we're gettin' bold
Aw yeah, bold steps must B taken
2 bump a nation
Their scrutiny is what 'm facin' (Hey)
As U pump the volume 2 what 'm sayin' (Hey)

Who turn the mutha out? (Man, NPG funked that)
That's what 'm sayin'...

"Tony, U were excellent
What U need is a manager"
4 what? (" can make U...")
Moneyminders R like parasites
They pose as wheelers & dealers 4 ur rights
& most companies say that U need 'em ("Not me")
But kick back, observed
& watched them bleed 'em ("'m honest")
Artists young & old (" can bring U 2 the top")
Where'd this unwritten law come from anyway?
That years after the contract
U should still B gettin' paid?
Boy, 'd go broke & hit the skids
B4 take care of a rich sucker's kids
Hell, a contract ain't no pension plan ("My contract...")
Years after this, my kids R still gonna make the grands
& U laughed at my brother - Little Richard ("Tony, U...")
When he says U ain't gave him nothin'
("Let's leave him out of this")
Hell, that ain't no joke
His songs R still sellin'
That man could die broke
So fellow artists, push 4 urs ("U need me")
& watch 4 Mr. Moneyminder
As we settle the score ("Tony...")
{slap} "Oh!"
