Get Wild

Get wild! Ah!
Get wild! Ooh, ooh, baby!
Get wild! {x4}
When U're sick of that 9 2 5
And U're ready 2 come alive
When U look both high and low
And U can't find a trumpet that blows
Come on baby (Aw shucks!), where the good times never die
Come on baby (Aw shucks!), where the damsels good and fly
Come on baby, U can shake your funky monkey 'til it cry
Polyvinyl acetate will keep your monkey high
If U wanna get real freaky, now's the time 2 try (Come on y'all)
CHORUS:
Get wild! - Everybody up in the place
Get wild! - It don't matter what sex or race
Get wild! - All U nasty girls and boys
If U wanna get wild, say yeah (Yeah!) - Make some noise!
When U want 2 get in the groove
But the music don't make U move
Hip the DJ 2 a new CD
Anything by the N.P.G.
Come on baby (Aw shucks!), where the good times never die
Come on baby (Aw shucks!), where the damsels good and fly
Come on baby, U can shake your funky monkey 'til it cry
Polyvinyl acetate will keep your monkey high
If U wanna get real freaky, now's the time 2 try (Come on y'all)
CHORUS
Get wild!
Like U know U need 2
Pick a funky outfit short and see through
Versace got it going on in the gold mesh
Why don't U try it on 2 night when U get dressed?
Get Wild's the only aroma that my nose will see (Get wild!)
Why don't U spray a little where U think I'm gonna be?
And U know, U know what shoes 2 wear
The ones so high U're scared
Ououo, peligro que aqui yo vengo! {Oh oh, danger 4 here I come!}
(Get wild!)
When U can't find the G 2 your GO
Even charged, your battery's low
When the smoke's 2 thick 2 blow
There's a brand new high we know
Come on baby (Aw shucks!), where the good times never die
Come on baby (Aw shucks!), where the damsels good and fly
Come on baby, U can shake your funky monkey 'til it cry
Polyvinyl acetate will keep your monkey high
If U wanna get real freaky, now's the time 2 try (Come on y'all)
Get wild! - Everybody up in the place, yes

Good Life

The good life, 1 day that's what I'll be livin'
Fantasy never hurt nobody, whatever chills the illin'
When the everyday gets on your last 1, give it up and go
2 the place in everyone's future, the good life - 1 day we'll know
(Good life)
Everyday after school, U know where 2 find this brother
Uptown at every movie show, outta my life 2 another
That was the only thing that I wanted 2 do, that was my drug of choice
Left all the funny smellin' cigarettes 2 the American boys
"La Dolce Vita" was the knob that turned me on
Marcello Mastroianni Italian Mac comin' on strong
He had all the honies, the kind from the magazines
Small waist, big - right!... biggest ones U've ever seen
The good life (good life), 1 day that's what I'll be livin'
Fantasy never hurt nobody, whatever chills the illin'
When the everyday gets on your last 1, give it up and go

1 day we'll know
(Good life)

Mama worked all night, went 2 school by day
Wanted 2 get her Master Degree so she could make a better way
Set examples 4 her babies that we'll never forget
That's where I guess my spirit comes from, eternally never met
Oh, the good life (good life), 1 day that's what I'll be livin'
Fantasy never hurt nobody, whatever chills the illin' (Ooh, good life)
When the everyday gets on your last 1, give it up and go

Hey, hey, hey!
Peace 2 the mother that knows
That the babies are the key 2 the world, key 2 the world
The battles of the future will be won
By those who teach those baby boys and girls
This is our plea 2 the brothers
Who are tired of the barely gettin' by, instead U should try
2 see your future map out your steps
And make sure no 1 dies
The good life (good), 1 day that's what I'll be livin'
Fantasy never hurt nobody, whatever chills the illin'
(1 drop of blood ain't worth forsaking your dreams)
When the everyday gets on your last 1, give it up and go
(Music, sports, fashion, whatever)
2 the place in everyone's future, the good life - 1 day we'll know
(Consolidate, think ahead, and cream, cream)
The good life (good life), 1 day that's what I'll be livin'
Fantasy never hurt nobody, whatever chills the illin' (Hey yeah, good life)
When the everyday gets on your last 1, give it up and go (Good life, oh)

Cherry, Cherry

Cherry, Cherry
Rozanda was her real name
But Cherry was her chosen one
Everybody said that she'd soon be dead
But Cherry replied "At least I had some fun" (Oh yes)
Her eyes were like a pool of 24 karat diamonds
I was the last in a long line of foolish men who dived in
CHORUS:
Cherry, Cherry
I think about U every rising sun
Whoa Cherry, Cherry
Wherever U are, I hope U're havin' fun (Oh yes)
Tuesday was my big game
North vs. Central in basketball
Underneath their long coats
Cherry and the girls wore camisoles
Every time North would run the hoop
Cherry would flash 'em and they would fall
But not as hard as I fell
When Cherry gave me her number and told me 2 call (U should call me)
Using all the money her boyfriend Wilbur gave her, she'd buy
Anything I wanted, that's why my baby's so fly
CHORUS
(Do do do do do)
Me and Cherry got married
And tried our best 2 keep it on the down low, the down low
I was combing her hair
The day that Wilbur called and cussed her on the phone
He beat her up real bad and figured I was gonna leave her
Instead I bought a 45 and set out 2 relieve her (Take him out)
If he was taken out then he could never harm another
No sooner than I got there, I was met by Cherry's mother cryin'
Cherry, Cherry
Every night I ask the Lord why? Oh why?
Cherry, Cherry
Another victim of a suicide (Why oh why?)
Why?
Cherry, Cherry
I think about U every rising sun
Whoa Cherry, Cherry
Wherever U are, I hope U're havin' fun
I hope U're having fun, baby
Cherry, Cherry
I'd give anything 2 kiss U
Cherry, Cherry
I guess I just miss U
Cherry

The return of the bump squad is comin' your way
Y'all hold that groove 4 a while while I pull out the good book
(Chill out nigga, we don't need that shit!)
As they journey from the Mt. Horeb by the way of the Red sea
(Broke ass muthafucka, ha ha ha)
2 compass the Land of Edom
And the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way
(Wanna holler)
And the people spake against God and against Moses
(Wanna holler)
Wherefore have ye brought us up 2 Egypt 2 die in the wilderness
(Wanna holler)
So we sayin' y'all U can bump, but U best get your house in order
And get back in the music books U no changin' juvenile delinquent ass jiggers

(Muthafucker, mm)
And he was chokin' me, right?
Cuz, cuz he didn't have no gun
Do U hear that shit?
Lucky 4 me, my homies was comin' 'round the 7-Eleven
And they seen what was goin' down
They grabbed this muthafucker, right?
("What's up man?")
Ripped an eyeball out
(Ahhh! "Fuck him up")
They beat his ass so bad, change fell out his pocket
(U bastards, mm)
These nigga's are crazies
So I said "Fuck it"
I robbed him, ha ha
With so much money on me, I figured I oughta hit Jannell's house
I knocked on her door, right?
(Mmm, oh)
I don't know what she was doin'
(Oh, ooh)
But I couldn't get no answer?
She was doin' some wrong shit
"Jannell" I shouted, still no answer
(Mmm, oh, oh)
I figured she was on the telephone or somethin'
(Oh)
So I walked around 2 the bathroom window
Pushed it up, climbed inside
Soon as I got inside, it hit me {gasp}
Damn!
I don't know what it was but it hit me hard
"Uh"
Jannell's a Rican, U know?
And them beans and rice is a habit at Jannell's house, U know?
I grab my mouth, my nose and I just screamed
And then I ran
But Jannell's house is real messy and I hit somethin' and I fell
That somethin' was Jannell
(Get off!)
I stepped on her bruised booty she got from stage diving
And it made her real mad so we went 2 rounds
Jannell can bob
She kicked my ass
Damn!
"Oh God"
So I left and I went 2 Glam Slam
And slammed a few Long Island's
Uh-oh, one 2 many

The Exodus Has Begun

Have mercy, uh
The exodus has begun (The exodus has begun!)
Have mercy, uh
The exodus has begun
Now these are the names of the New Power Generation
(These are the names)
The funkiest suckers of the new gold nation
Polyvinyl acetate, New Power Soul
Guaranteed 2 stick 2 the roof of your Oldsmobile muthafucka
CHORUS:
Long live the New Power!
Have mercy
Generation after generation, the soul will never die
(The exodus has begun)
Long live the New Power!
Have mercy
We don't cry, we don't die, we just multiply
Polyvinyl acetate, New Power Soul (Mercy)
The exodus has begun
These are the names of the children of the sun
Pumpin' the love sign in the days of wild
Tearin' shit up with a vengeance and still they smile (Still they smile)
Though their lives were made bitter with hard labor and no pay
These are the children that will come 2 save the day
(These are the children)
The exodus has begun
Have mercy
CHORUS
La da da da, da da daaa (U ain't gonna hurt me)
Sho do do do do doo (Have mercy)
La da da da, da da daaa (U ain't gonna hurt me)
Have mercy
(Behold)
Behold the children of the New Power
Are more and mightier than U (Mighty, mighty)
U that have scorned and held back the inevitable
Must now come 2 grips with the truth
(All that is good in the eyes of heaven)
All that is good in the eyes of heaven
Will rebuke your powder monkey ways
(Have mercy, mercy, mercy)
And let that same heaven have mercy
When the wrath of the sun knocks upon your gate
Have mercy
The exodus has begun
(New... New Power!)
Uh, brothers and sisters
(Stop me if U want, it's between U and me)
The exodus has begun

All that is good is nasty
All that is good, all that is good (Have mercy)
All that is good in heaven (The exodus has begun)
All that is good, all that is good (Have mercy)
All that is good in heaven (The exodus has begun)
Long live the New Power! (Long live)
Have mercy
Generation after generation, the soul will never die
The exodus has begun
Long live the New Power! (Long live)
Have mercy (Live a little while)
We don't cry, we don't die, we just multiply
Spatch cocks in black face offer us pennies (Offer us pennies)
When it's millions and millions upon millions they reap
(When it's millions, when it's millions) (Pluck his eye again!)
How in the world can we call ourselves equal
When their wages outweigh
When their wages outweigh the time that they keep?
(Pluck his eye again!)
And if they stood up and behaved like the humans they're supposed 2
As opposed 2 the way they are not
Then this New Power Soul would not be so soulful
(Then this New Power Soul would not be soulful)
And the water they're in would not be so hot
(And the water would not be so hot)
The exodus has begun (The exodus has begun!)
Have mercy
Uh (The exodus has begun!)
The exodus has begun
Now sing
Long live the New Power!

Cuz I think U're thinkin' about readin' me
And when the people ask U everywhere

Bald-headed son of a motherfuckin' housefly
And like George said (What?)
Get satisfied
Let's get satisfied, let's get satisfied

Spatch cocks in black face offers us pennies
When there's millions and millions that they reap
Millions and millions that they reap
What the fuck is that about?

What the fuck is that shit about?
We don't play that muthafuckin' shit!
U think we got a muthafuckin' joystick up our ass or somethin'?
Fuck that!
I don't know what U thinkin' about
But the exodus has begun muthafuckas!
(New Power!)
The exodus has begun
U ain't gonna hear that shit nowhere else

I know his name, that muthafuckin' Prince
Rest in peace nigga!
