Mmm... (Step 1, step off 2 the dance floor...)
Push (Yeah)
Push up on it (Good God)
Yeah, push
Yeah, whoo (Push it) (Push up on it)

Every time U get some
People wanna take it back
They rather C U on the run
Than C U get it like that
Every time they stop U
Change up like a sock
Every time they try 2 clock U
Tick more than they tock

push
Don't U let 'em pull U down
Yeah, push ( push)
Until U get 2 higher ground
push
U'r never 2 young, U'r never 2 old
Yeah, push
Don't stop until U go

Did U ever stop 2 wonder
Y U put another down?
No man should asunder
The joy that another man found
Maybe 'bout the business U was worried
Wasn't ever filed N ur name
Maybe the cartridge U was playin'
Don't fit N ur video game

Push ( push)
Don't U let 'em pull U down
Yeah, push ( push)
Until U get 2 higher ground
push
U'r never 2 young, U'r never 2 old
Yeah, push
Don't stop until U go
Hey
Alright ( push)
Push (...) (Push up on it)
Push ( push)
Push, push, hey yeah
Push
wanna push it now
Yeah, push (Push up on it)
Push
Mm, yeah ( push)

Every time U get some (Push...)
People wanna take it back
They rather C U on the run
Than C U get it like that
Every time they stop U
They change up like a sock (Oh yeah)
Every time they try 2 clock U
Tick more than they tock

push (Oh yeah)
Don't U let 'em pull U down (Ooh)
Push ( push)
Until U get 2 higher ground (Oh yeah)
push
U'r never 2 young, U'r never 2 old
& 'm gonna push
Don't stop until U go
Oh yeah (Push) ( push)
Push ( push)
We're gonna push ( push)
Push ( push)

Did U ever stop 2 wonder? (Push)
Yeah, 'mo push up on it
Yeah (Push...)
Tony (Yo)
C'mon & get on the mic ('mo push up on it)
Tony (Yo, hmph)
Get on the mic (Yeah, 'mo push up on it)
Tony (Yo, huh)
Get on the mic... (Slow down, 'mo push up on it)

push 4 a beat that is greasy
'll dis a beat if it teases
Marks this down as state it
like my funk concentrated
The pop seems, hmmm, a little overrated
Guess U can tell what was stepped N?
Just the grease on the stage
Oops, just stepped N it (Push...)
Circling as we vibe the full stride
Was the ride on a watered-down trip
We could never get by
Fellas (Get on the mic)
Check it out - here's what U gotta do
Got 2 step N the room with the mood
Never juicin' urself
Just a competent attitude
Then me & U will get busy (Get on the mic)
Ur mouth'll drop open
As U watch the slimmies walkin'
But U don't want the 1 who's jockin'
Cuz it's all about the clockin'
Step 1, step off 2 the dance floor
Push up on it
There U go, y'all, yeah

1, 1 2 push...
C'mon, push it (Push up on it) (Get on the mic)

Prince, get on the mic... (Get on it...) (Push up on it)
U don't want me on the mic
Naw man, U don't want me on the mic (Don't stop it)
Yeah... oh yeah (Push...)

It's thunder when 'm on the mic ( push...)
Daddy Pop's N the house
U'r sure 2 like his diamonds
Sure 2 like his pearls
'm good 2 cream every boy & girl
Cuz 'm strollin'
Steady hip-hop rock 'n' rollin'
'm willing & able - horny pony
& 'm pumpin' 'em, 'm pumpin' 'em
'm pump-pump-pump-pump-pumpin' 'em
From Pakistan 2 Poland
Straight n2 ur town (Get on the mic...)
Snatchin' up kiddies like a circus clown
Hahaha... (Get on the microphone)

Well, all U people out there
U better beware (Push...)
Cuz they call me Rosie G.
& just don't care
like 2 step all night long
A rappin' here, rappin' there
Pushin' this song (Hey)
As the song gets hotter
It'll set U on fire (Get on the mic...)
Like the lightenin' N the Bible
It takes U all higher
My mama said, "Girl, U know it ain't cool"
Said, "U don't wanna play by nobody's rules"
said, "Mama, chill out & give me a break
Cuz know got just what it takes"
said, "Mama, don't put me under pressure
love U & think U'r fresh
push!"
Everybody, here we go
C'mon now & push if ya wanna - push!
C'mon... come push... it
Push!
Yeah, push it
Push!
Yeah, push it
Push!
