[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
