Music is the key 2 set urself free
From depression, drugs and increasing poverty
The key is 2 the lock, the lock is on the door
The door has a knob that U never turned b4
The jack, use the jack, it opens up the lock
Cuz there's the key 2 unlock the body
Place it like that 2 open up the door
The door 2 the house 4 the people galore
The beat won't stop till the J.M. jocks
And he jacks the box till the party rocks
The clock tick-tocks and the place gets hot
And believe it or not, all the troubles U 4got
It's just that easy if U want it 2 b (Ah yeah!)
4 all the fellas and the young ladies
So ease ur mind and set urself free (Yeah, yeah!)
2 the mystifying music that we call Cindy C. (Yeah!)

Oh Cindy C., won't U play with me?
Oh Cindy C.

Dead On It
Riding n my Thunderbird on the freeway
I turned on my radio 2 hear some music play
I got a silly rapper talkin' silly shit instead
And the only good rapper is 1 that's dead on it
Uh, dead on it
Shall we go back? Yeah
Let's go

Negroes from Brooklyn play the bass pretty good
But the ones from Minneapolis play it like it oughta should
A microphone is better when U got a groove on it
And the 2 and 4 is funky when the grease is dead on it
(Funky) Dead on it
Uh, dead on it
Shall we go back? Let's go
They dead on it, wow

Oh
See, the rapper's problem usually stem from being tone deaf
Pack the house and try 2 sing, there won't b no 1 left
Hahaha, on it (Hahaha...)
The parking lot's on fire, brothers peelin' out of town
They say n disgust, "They ain't singin' their guts, rappin' done let us down...
They got 2 b dead on it"
Oh
Dead on it
Dead

All the sisters like it when U lick 'em on the knees
Don't believe me? (Nope)
Do it once, then stop, they'll b beggin' please, please, please
Shoo-b-doo-wa, dead on it
What does that have 2 do with the funk?
Nothing, but who's payin' the bills?
If U don't wanna lick my knees, I'm sure ur mama will
Uh, cuz we... dead on it
Dead... on it, on it

La la la la...

My bed's a coffin, Dracula ain't got shit on me
My nickname's Beelzebub, I'm badder than the Wicked Witch
I got a gold tooth costs more than ur house
I got a diamond ring on 4 fingers, each 1 the size of a mouse
They dead, they dead on it
Yeah ooh
Uh

La la la la...
La la la la...

Wait now, hang up, dial tone on the 3
U know, U know, I'm busy, 2 scizzy
Can't nobody fuck with me
Because I'm dead on it...
Shoo-b-doo-wa-wa, dead on it
Dead on it...
Dang, dang... dead on it
Shoo-b-dang, dang... dead on it

When 2 R In Love

So fierce U look 2night
The brightest star pales 2 ur sex
B4 we do anything
Let me just talk 2 U

When 2 R N love
They'll whisper secrets only they 2 can hear
When 2 R N love
When 2 R N love
Their stomachs will pound every time the other comes near
When 2 R N love
Ooh, when 2 R N love
Falling leaves will appear 2 them like slow motion rain
Slow motion, slow motion
When 2 R N love
The speed of their hips can B faster than a runaway train
Drop drop drip-drop water water water

Come bathe with me
Let's drown each other N each other's emotions
Bathe with me
Let's cover each other with perfume & lotion
Bathe with me
Ooh, let me touch ur body till ur river's an ocean
Bathe with me
Let's kiss with 1 synonymous notion
That nothing's 4bidden & nothing's taboo
When the 2 R N love (L O V E - L O V)
Can U hear me?

When 2 R N love
Their bodies shiver at the mere contemplation of penetration
Let alone the act
Let alone the actual act (Act)
When 2 R N love
The thought of his tongue N the V of her love
N his mind, this thought
It leads the pack (Pack)

Come bathe with me
Let's drown each other N each other's emotions
Bathe with me
Let's cover each other with perfume & lotion
Bathe with me
Ooh, let me touch ur body till ur river's an ocean
Bathe with me
Let's kiss with 1 synonymous notion
That nothing's 4bidden & nothing's taboo
When the 2 R N love, N love
Can U hear me?

Hold me
Yeah, just like that
Don't move

Instrumental track recorded on December 9, 1986 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, CA.

Rockhard In A Funky Place
Oh, oh

Does anybody know U're here?
This house of ill repute (Ooh honey, I'm scared of U)
Tryin' 2 deal with all ur fears
I guess this is what U get 4 bein' cute (Cute, cute)
Oh, soaked n banana cologne
No wonder U're all alone
It's written all over ur face
U're just a rockhard n a funky place
Hey
Ooh
Rockhard n a funky place

Here comes a lady so U cover up
She's a freak hot funky electric mama with double cups
(OK mama, c'mon, hey girl)
See, U... (c'mon), U couldn't cop if U wanted 2
Because somethin' near ur leg is haunting U
Such a disgrace U rockhard n a funky place
Ow!
Uh, uh
Haha, yo
Rockhard n a funky place

U was workin' on the line U could drop on her (Uh uh)
But U couldn't concentrate when ur dick saw her (Uh uh)
Maybe if U cop a nut n the car
Maybe U could think about playing guitar
Rock rock... {repeat}
Oh yeah
Oh yeah, rockhard
Oh
Ooh
Whoa
Rockhard n a funky place

All U're lookin' 4 is love
Or a reason 2 believe there's a God above
Pretty soon U'll get enough
And head back 2 a life so tough

I just hate 2 see an erection go 2 waste (Aaaah)
I'm just a rockhard n a funky place
Rockhard n a funky place
Say it, rockhard n a funky place
Rockhard n a funky place
Oh, U rockhard n a funky place
U rockhard n a funky place

Say it, y'all (Rock rock)
What? (Rock rock...)
We gotta go, y'all (Rock rock)
Tune n next week (Rock rock)
Same time, same boogie (Rock rock)
Rockhard (Rock rock)
Oh yeah, we will rock, y'all (Rock rock...)
But until then keep ur finger on the trigger (Rock rock...)
That's the only way it'll get bigger

What kind of fuck ending was that?
