Heyo, I got a dance fire on my feet Heyo, let’s put this sucker out! Take off my steel toe boots Tying up my dancing shoes Getting up in my skin tight suit yeah Jump in my ‘86 Chevy Flying down the roadway baby Coming up to the club little lady Check it out I’m the one who’s got the funkies And I’m dancing like a king on cocaine Now I’m the one who’s got the ladies My moves have got them going crazy Heyo, I see you checking out my skills Heyo, I see you lookin... but you better be looking out! Running man, you got that right Worm, I’m wormin’ it tight Turn up the heat on a Monday night yeah Drinking the juice like a west coast rapper Keeping it loose like a chiropractor Don’t mean to be rude but shut your yapper Lookie here I’m the one who’s got the funkies And I’m dancing like a king on cocaine Yeah I’m the one who’s got the ladies My moves have got them going crazy You think you want some Hah, you ‘aint got it You think you need some You ‘aint got it boy! You wanna know my secret? Too bad I ‘aint gonna tell it There’s no benefit (to me) You dudes you looking so angry Angry that I’m taking all the ladies Too bad I’m the one with the funkies I’m the one who’s got the funkies And I’m dancing like a king on cocaine Now I’m the one who’s got your lady Cause I’ve got the market on cool

Danger Zone 04:25
Revvin’ up your engine Listen to her howlin’ roar Metal under tension Beggin you to touch and go Highway to the Danger Zone Ride into the Danger Zone Heading into twilight Spreading out her wings tonight She’s got you jumping off the deck And shoving into overdrive Highway to the Danger Zone I’ll take you right into the Danger Zone They’ll never say hello to you 'til you get it on the red line overload You got to do what you can do 'til you get it up as high as you can go Highway to the Danger Zone Ride into the Danger Zone Highway to the Danger Zone Ride into the Danger Zone

Who Da Man?! 03:19
First time I saw you Walk into the room I read you like a book I sank the hook (I said) Lose those tight clothes ‘cause I said you can You never knew I’d simplify your plan Who da man? Who da man? I would have to say me Every night, every night My lust you are relieving Lay me down, lay me down Hit ya with the disease In flight through the night Reading your face You know what you got Deep below the epiderm I hit the spot (Look out) You think it’s over But I’ve just begun Now you know I’ve got the mighty gun Who da man? Who da man? I would have to say me Every night, every night My lust you are relieving Lay me down, lay me down Hit ya with the disease In flight through the night Pull you under Make you wonder Below (where you like to go) Heat colliding The levels rising So high You da man! You da man! I would have to agree Every night, every night My lust you are relieving Lay me down, lay me down Smack you with the disease oh no In flight through the night You da man! You da man! Yes I am, yes I am, you got it Every night, every night My lust you are relieving Lay me down, lay me down Now you got the disease In flight through the night
