Cameo — Word Up lyrics

Yo, pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you
So tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too
Weґre about to throw down
And you know just what to do
Wave your hands in the air like you donґt care
Glide by the people as they stop to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me whatґs the word

Word up everybody says
When you hear the call youґve got to get it under way
Word up itґs the cool word
No matter where you say it you know that youґll be heard
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/cameo-word-up-lyrics.html ]
Now all you super DJs who think youґre fly
Thereґs got to be a reason and you know the reason why
Why you put on those airs and you act real cool
But you've got to realise that youґre acting like fools
If thereґs music we can use it
And we can dance
We donґt have no time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me mamma
Come on baby tell me whatґs the word

Word up everybody says
When you hear the call youґve got to get it underway

Dial L for love, Dial L for love, Dial L for love
W.O.R.D. UP, W.O.R.D. UP, W.O.R.D. UP, W.O.R.D. UP

Now all you super DJs who think youґre fly
Thereґs got to be a reason and you know the reason why
Why you put on those airs and you act real cool
But you've got to realise that youґre acting like fools
If thereґs music we can use it
And we can dance
We donґt have no time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me mamma
Come on baby tell me whatґs the word

Word up everybody says
When you hear the call youґve got to get it underway
Word up itґs the code word
No matter where you say it you know that youґll be heard

Word up everybody says
When you hear the call youґve got to get it underway
Word up itґs the cool word
No matter where you say it you know that youґll be heard
