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
