boys with da bass lyrics – 2 live crew

absolutely no one under 17 will be admitted
without parent or certified adult guardian
they’ll fry your brain, they’re sick as h*ll
jolly good fun, you’ll die dancin’
dark, gliding shapes that violate every law of nature
buy ’em or die a thousand deaths

2 live crew, 2 live crew
boyz with da b*ss, boyz with da b*ss
boyz with da b*ss, boyz with da b*ss
2 live crew, 2 live crew
boyz with da b*ss, you better know it

that’s right y’all, you heard it ’cause we said it
and if you can’t read in the magazines
you read about who? you know the crew
fresh outta pac and the first to put the b*ss on the 24-track

some said it wouldn’t work, some said it wouldn’t last
in new york, they say that the tempo’s too fast
you disregarded, but the alb*ms got charted
we put ’em in the stores and millions have bought it

an underground sound, not liked by radio
you hear it in the cars and at the disco
on the airwaves, we misbehave
we’re too bold, too rugged in our nasty ways

from dirty minds come dirty rhymes
we’re not gonna beg for your time
you don’t play it? that’s cool with me
but somehow, our b*ss still reaches the street

as long as we got it, you can get it
people want the b*ss, so some try to steal it
from behind our back and not in our face
’cause 2 live is the crew, the boyz with da b*ss

2 live crew, 2 live crew
boyz with da b*ss, boyz with da b*ss
boyz with da b*ss, boyz with da b*ss
2 live crew, 2 live crew
boyz with da b*ss, you better know it

holdin’ our own in the south-east region
when you come to the bottom, pledge to our allegiance
i’m glad to say that we’re the proud owners
the rock-and-rollers, you can’t take us over

the name of the game is supply and demand
we supply the b*ss while you demand our jams
we could not wait to bring our b*ss to you
because in this game, you lag, you lose

see, we serve our b*ss raw, straight up and not false
this is the kind you dance to, and not on 8-ball
plenty of b*ss, the beat, and the rhyme
that my homeboy mr. mixx carefully designed

hittin’ hard as h*ll and always droppin’
b*ss is the reason why you are rockin’
when you hear our songs and you see our face
put two and two together; we’re the boyz with da b*ss

2 live crew, 2 live crew
boyz with da b*ss, boyz with da b*ss
boyz with da b*ss, boyz with da b*ss
2 live crew, 2 live crew
boyz with da b*ss, it’s the best in this city

2 live crew, 2 live crew
boyz with da b*ss, boyz with da b*ss
boyz with da b*ss, boyz with da b*ss
you better know it, it’s the best in the city
