"Where R U?"
Whoo!
U can relax now
The max is N control
Uh...
go (2 the max)
Oh yeah

When my back is so far back
It's on the other side of the wall
When half a chance is all get
If get a chance at all
When the goin' gets tougher than the tough can go
grind the ax
That's when go, go, go 2 the max

go... the max
Yo baby, tell me where the party's at (2 the max)
The max
& yo baby, wanna shuffle the cards N that stack
go... the max
We can dance if U want 2 but might break ur back (2 the max)
The max
More funk 4 ur buck, U can bet on that

When they tell me 2 walk a straight line
put on crooked shoes
When they tell me that can't live 4ever
pay some overdues (Dig it)
When they start makin' up a crazy rule
That's when break a back
Cuz when go, go, go 2 the max

go... the max
Oh yeah {repea} Yo baby, tell me where the party's at (2 the max)
The max
& yo baby, wanna shuffle the cards N that stack
The max
We can dance if U want 2 but might break ur back (2 the max)
The max
More funk 4 ur buck, U can bet on that
Let's go...
Ow!
Oh yeah

Dig it
When my body starts 2 shiver from the chill of the scarlet sweat
When my lips eclipse the sun & the moon reflecting from the wet
When the blood of my love outraces every 1 of the stallions N ur pack
That's when U go, U go, U go 2 the max

U go...
The max (Get funky) {repeat}
Oh
Let's go! {repeat}
think 'm gonna like this
wanna dance
Oh yeah
go 2 the max
'm not afraid (Oh my God)
wanna dance

Then listen
When the goin' gets tougher than the tough can go
grind the ax
That's when go, go, go 2 the max

go... the max
Yo baby, tell me where the party's at
The max
& yo baby, wanna shuffle the cards N that stack
The max
We can dance if U want 2 but might break ur back
The max
More funk 4 ur buck, U can bet on that
This is the max

Dear love, dear love, dear love
4give me 4 my sins
But U left me N such a cold, cold world
2 suffer N (Dig it)
& contrary 2 popular belief
Even tho 1's life is brief
If U go there once
U'll come again & again...
Let's go!

'm smellin' somethin' funky with the NPG (Whoo!)
This is the max
