Here's the old school, with the new school
Here's the old school, with the new school
Here's the old school, with the new school

R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school

Hey boy, won't you play for me
Right now, give me that old school beat
I wanna hear it here, groovin' all night long
I gotta let you know you got it goin' on
Play it for me

R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school

Hey boy, let me hear your song
Yeah play till the break of dawn
Keep it right here, groovin' all night
I gotta let you know that it feels so right
Play it for me

R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school

Yo, back in the days I used to listen to records
Tryin' to figure out how I could make my own records
Workin' in restaurants, bustin' on dishes
Hopin' that the man upstairs respect my wishes
Cigerette lighters, Ardig wallets, I was sellin' them

'Till I met the B H and bust down a capella to him
He said you got talent and you're goin' places
I'd heard that line before but what the heck I signed the papers
Ever since that day I drew my head high it was on
And now I'm mixing new music with the old school songs

R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school
R. Kelly play me something from the old school
