What's a matter with ur life?
Is the poverty bringin' U down?
Is the mailman jerkin' U 'round?
Did he put ur million dollar check N some1 else's box?
Tell me

Mm, what's a matter with ur world?
Was it a boy when U wanted a girl?
Don't U know straight hair ain't got no curl?
But life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Dig it

Pop life
Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life
We all got a space 2 fill
Pop life
Everybody can't B on top
But life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Dig it

Tell me, what's that underneath ur hair?
Is there anybody livin' there?
Can't get over if U say U just don't care
Show me a boy who stays N school & 'll show U a boy aware
Dig it

Pop life
Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life
We all got a space 2 fill
Pop life
Everybody can't B on top
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Dig it
Uh
Oh

Whatcha puttin' N ur nose?
Is that where all ur money goes? (Is that where ur money goes?)
The river of addiction flows
U think it's hot
But there won't B no water when the fire blows
Dig it

Pop life
Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life
We all got a space 2 fill
Pop life
Everybody wants 2 B on top
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Dig it

Pop life
Everybody needs satisfaction
Pop life
Want a chemical reaction
Pop life
Everybody wants 2 get high
But U don't C no 1 standing N line 2 say, "Bye-bye"
That's pop life

Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life
We all got a space 2 fill
Pop life
& everybody can't B on top
But life, it ain't real funky, baby
Unless it's got that pop

Pop life (Whoo, oh)
Pop life (Fill my space, darlin')
Pop life ( wanna B, wanna B on top)
Life, it ain't real funky (Ain't 2 funky)
Unless it's got that pop (Unless it's got that pop life)

Tell me (Pop life)
Tell me, what's a matter with ur sex? (Pop life)
Is 15 minutes ur best? (Pop life)
guess U, guess U gotta get it off ur chest
Y'd U need another love?
U know that 'm the best
guess that's pop life
Me body needs satisfaction
Pop life
want a chemical reaction
Pop life
Everybody can't B on top, mm
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
U sing now, pop life
Pop life (Mmm ooh)
Pop life
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Dig it

Pop life (Oh, betcha love life, baby, love)
Pop life (Is it bringin' U down?)
Pop life (Is it bringin' U down? Yeah)
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Pop life
U sing it, pop life
Everybody, pop life
Everybody
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Unless it's got that pop life (Yeah, yeah)
Pop life (Mmm, yeah...)
Pop life (Everybody needs a thrill, yeah)
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Dig it
Pop life (Whoa yeah)
Dig it, pop life (Oh)
Pop life
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
U sing now, pop life
Pop life
Pop life ( can't hear ya, baby, time 2 sing)
Life, it ain't real funky (It ain't 2 funky)
Unless it's got that pop

Pop life
Is the poverty bringing U down? (Pop life)
Is the mailman jerking U around? (Pop life)
Did he put ur million dollar check N someone else's pocket?
(Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop)
Do U know what 'm talkin' about?

Pop life
Pop life
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Unless it's got that pop life (Ooh)
Pop life

Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop
Everybody (Pop life) {repeat}
Life, it ain't real funky unless it's got that pop

So what's a matter with ur life?
