Oooh baby I like the sound when


The switch is on and you start poundin'


Out my radio and pretty soon


Salt and Pepa will boom into the room




Clap your hands now people clap hard


Clap your hands now people clap your hands


Clap your hands now people stomp your feet


Clap your hands now people clap with me




Listen hard and tell me what you hear


Is it noise or is it def beats in your ear?


You said you want one, and now you got some


Vicious snare, high hats, and a bass drum


First the mix empress to impress you


Cutting right on time and I'll bet you


Didn't know it (did you?), you can't believe it (could you?)


Word to life, I swear, we wouldn't kid you


And she can cut it up like a wild animal


Slicing and dicing away as a cannibal does


'cause only a beauty can make you people clap with me




Who is the best?


We are the best!


Who's one of the best?



You're one of the best!




Why am I so def? Why don't I have flaws?


Why do I cut for Salt and Pepa? Because


When my turntable talks your body will listen


To a message ??? tested and kickin'


Out of my speakers and into your sneakers


Providing conversation for the woofers and tweeters


When I play the Technics obey


'cause I'm a fader translator, a mixboard slave


And I'm-a do like this on 'em...this on 'em




When I'm on the floor, beat is like romance


The rhythm makes love to me as I dance


And from what I see it's about to be


A relationship between beauty and the beat


Word up y'all, it's a royal ball


Turn hip-hop clubs into concert halls


Inside is live, if I use up highs


Twelve hundred ????


Power in high drive, the woofers don't lie


Opposites attract so the birthrate's high


Your chest and ribcage the bass is poking at


(Lower the what?) Stop joking...


We can't do that it possess power


You ask how-a people get louder




[Uh, step aside, sir....


Sir, will you please step aside for the....]


Salt and Pepa MC's represent beauty


We want y'all to see why we're the only


Nominee nominated representing our race


This jam is dedicated to all the pretty faces


And we're gonna rock like you like


Spinderella on the mix, Salt and Pepa on the mike


And we can satisfy your desire


We can make your body perspire


Make the men all want to get with it


Then take 'em down to the ultimate


Sounds and I say: Spinderella's not a fella


But a girl DJ!
