Boy's Choir
This is your basic 101 class
We're taking too much music from the past
If you agree with me
Gather round, clap your hands and lets make history

Chorus
If I took a page out of Steve's book
Rocked a riff like Donnie would
Everybody's taking from the past and not the present
1973 is just irrelevant
If I bit a style out of Smokey's look
Stole some word's from a Chaka hook
Everybody's taking from the past and not the present
1981 is just irrelevant

Verse
Nowadays everybody wants to be a superstar
They're trying to be like someone else
While forgetting who they are
And it's a damn shame
Cuz by now you'd think we'd be far
From this hypocrisy and ideology
Man, I find it so bizarre

Pre
Just like the next kid I had my share of influence
From that sweet Babyface to my man Common
Whatever happened to the days when we used to say
Hey it's Tuesday
Time to drop 10 dollars on that brand new release
Pop it in, press play and inspire me
Where did all the good music go
Oh how I miss those days

Chorus
If I took a page out of Steve's book
Rocked a riff like Donnie would
Everybody's taking from the past and not the present
1973 is just irrelevant
If I bit a style out of Smokey's look
Stole some word's from a Chaka hook
Everybody's taking from the past and not the present
1981 is just irrelevant

Verse
Just cuz I'm on stage doesn't mean I wanna be a
Superstar
I'm trying to be my own self while forgetting who they
Are
And it's a damn a shame like Bubonic Plague and sars
They're killing artisty and musicology
Man, I thought we'd come far

Pre
Wasn't raised on soul but I had to get to know
Mr Raphael and D'angelo
Rember those better days when we used to sing
(You're my lady)
Oh that used to be my jam back in '96
Nowadays them kids all they want are hits
You won't find me in a music store
But oh how I miss them days

Chorus
If I took a page out of Steve's book
Rocked a riff like Donnie would
Everybody's taking from the past and not the present
1973 is just irrelevant
If I bit a style out of Smokey's look
Stole some word's from a Chahka hook
Everybody's taking from the past and not the present
1981 is just irrelevant

Breakdown
Ohh woah woah woah woah woah
Take me back to the good old days
When we used to sing for love and not for show
Ohh woah woah woah woah woah
Something's wrong with the kinds of songs
They play all day long or maybe I'm too critical

Chorus
If I took a page out of Steve's book
Rocked a riff like Donnie would
Everybody's taking from the past and not the present
1973 is just irrelevant
If I bit a style out of Smokey's look
Stole some word's from a Chahka hook
Everybody's taking from the past and not the present
1981 is just irrelevant
