[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...What?...Sandy...What? 



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
