  • [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...What?...Sandy...What?



    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
