About Gettin' Jiggy Wit It

"Gettin' Jiggy wit It" is a single by American actor and rapper Will Smith, released as the third cut from his debut solo album Big Willie Style (1997). The verse is based around a sample of "He's the Greatest Dancer" by Sister Sledge, and the chorus is sampled from "Sang and Dance" by the Bar-Kays. Released in January 1998, the song was Smith's second hit produced by Poke & Tone and L. E. S., who replaced his long-time partner Jazzy Jeff, though the record-scratching techniques of Jazzy Jeff can be heard in the song. The song spent three weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart from March 14, 1998. It also won a Grammy Award in 1999 for the Best Rap Solo Performance. It was ranked the 68th greatest song of the 1990s by VH1. However, it was ranked at #19 on the list of AOL Radio's 100 Worst Songs Ever in 2010. The song was included in Pitchfork Media's 2010 list of "the seven worst U. S. No. 1 singles of the 90s".

On your mark, ready, set, let's go
Dance floor pro, I know you know
I go psycho when my new joint hit
Just can't sit
Gotta get jiggy wit it, ooh, that's it
Now honey honey come ride
DKNY all up in my eye
You gotta Prada bag with a lotta stuff in it
Give it to your friend, let's spin
Everybody lookin' at me, glancin' the kid
Wishin' they was dancin' the jig
Here with this handsome kid
Ciga-cigar right from Cuba-Cuba
I just bite it
It's for the look, I don't light it
Illway the an-may on the ance-day oor-flay
Give it up jiggy, make it feel like foreplay
Yo, my cardio is infinite

What? You wanna ball with the kid?
Watch your step, you might fall
Trying to do what I did
Mama, uh, mama, uh mama, come closer
In the middle of the club with the rub-a-dub, uh
No love for the haters, the haters
Mad 'cause I got floor seats at the Lakers
See me on the fifty yard line with the Raiders
Met Ali, he told me I'm the greatest
I got the fever for the flavor of a crowd pleaser
DJ, play another from the prince of this
Your highness, only bad chicks ride in my whips
South to the west to the east to the north
Bought my hits and watch 'em go off, go off
Yes, yes, y'all, you don't stop
In the winter or the (summertime)
I makes it hot

Gettin' jiggy wit 'em

850is, if you need a lift
Who's the kid in the drop?
Who else? Will Smith
Livin' that life some consider a myth
Rock from south street to one two fifth
Women used to tease me
Give it to me now, nice and easy
Since I moved up like George and Wheezey
Cream to the maximum I be askin' 'em
Would you like to bounce with the brother that's platinum?
Never see Will attackin' 'em
I rather play ball with Shaq and 'em, flatten 'em
Psyche, kiddin'
Thought I took a spill, but I didn't
Trust, the lady of my life she hittin'
Hit her with a drop top with the ribbon
Crib for my mom on the outskirts of Philly
You? Tryna flex on me? Don't be silly
