this is my first video hope you like it if you want some lyrics from me just leave a comment.
Off of the Cameo album Word Up!(1986) Dah 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 mama too, cause they're About to go down And you'll know just what to do. Wave your hands in the air Like you don't care, glide by The People as they start to look and stare. Do you dance, do your dance quick Mama, come on baby, tell me what's The Word, ah -- word up, Everybody say when you hear the call You got to get it underway, Word up, it's the code word, No matter where you say it, You'll know that you'll be heard. Now all you sucker. D.J.'s Who think you're fly There's got to be a reason And we know the reason why. And act real cool But you got to realise That you're acting like fools. If there's music we can use it We need to dance. We don't have that time For psychological romance No romance No romance No romance for me mama Come on baby tell me what's the word. Ah -- word up, Everybody say when you hear the call You got to get it underway. Dial "L" for low... Come on, all you people say... Word up -- word up

Larry 'Codpiece' Blackmon and the Great Tocadisco We're dancing to this all the time in the Thriftshop of musical history. Another TXL original for you to enjoy.
It's super fun impersonating the original singer when playing this song.
