  • [Once again my friends and countrymen

    Lend us your ears and eyes

    The Showstopper is stupid fresh

    When will you be satisfied?]

    Yo bust it Sandy D.

    Yo what's up?

    Have you ever been to jams when people just stand

    And they pay to come in and they don't even dance?

    They're so uncouth they think they're cute

    Am I lying? No it's the truth

    Right now I'm gonna show you how it's supposed to be

    'cause we, the Salt and Pepa MCs

    Will chance the circumstance rocks your pants

    My fans, this is called the jam


    Sandy, we'll be breaking hearts, ya know

    That's true, it's all about money though

    But Douglas and Richie won't like it (So?)

    Come on then, let's stop the show

    Yo, this beat is stupid fresh

    Huh, yeah, you know it, cold dissed Doug Fresh

    Top choice, of course, the rest is soft

    Set it off, do it Set it off, do it

    Set it off, do it Set it off, do it

    Listen now, I ain't down to rap

    Are you serious? Just like a heart attack

    Come on now, Cher! I don't want to

    Get on now, Cher! Do I have to? Yeah!

    Well I really don't have too much to say

    Yo, then here's my story anyway

    It's just a little somethin' too hot to be missed, girl

    I was going downtown (???), serious

    Cher took the train home from work

    Pissed off because of a stain on my shirt

    The train made a stop (Where?) Two hundred and five

    And a little soft guy walked inside

    He wore plastic Bally's and a booty Gucci suit

    Cracked a little smile and showed a fake gold tooth

    Was he cute? Negative, he was a dupe

    Instead of Polo he wore ????

    La-di-da-di What?

    La-di-da-di Uh-huh, word to mother

    The boy was rude, I didn't approve

    He tried to make a move I said, "Stop it, dude!"

    I started to cuss and began to swear

    He said, "Listen girl, I like the way you comb your hair

    And I like the stylish clothes you wear

    Is there something that I can do

    To show how much I really care?

    Like when I'm all alone with you

    My heart just skips a beat or two

    And you put that fire inside of me

    That shows it's more than just a dream

    And I like it, and I like it"

    I said, "Please, don't get excited!"

    Don't you know I'm too young for you, mister?

    Sally from the Valley - she's my sister

    And that lady you dissed - that was my mother

    You hurt two of my family, you won't get another

    He tried to deny it, said it was a lie

    He wanted to explain, explain to me why

    I said, "Don't bother, there's really no need

    Sally died when she hit the concrete"

    He said, "Come on, you're puttin' me on"

    As I got up to walk he sang this song:

    "Oh, baby please don't go

    What must I do to show

    The way I feel for you, girl

    Is going to be real?

    But in reality, I know we'll never be

    'cause you're still walking away from me"

    A dis, a dis
