Now everybody - have you heard
If you're in the game, then the stroke's the word
Don't take no rhythm - don't take no style
Got a thirst for killing - grab your vile...

You put your right hand out...give a firm hand-shake
Talk to me about the one big break..
Spread the ear pollution both far and wide...
Keep your contributions by your side and stroke me, stroke me...

Could be a winner boy, you move quite well...
You got your number down...
Say you're a winner boy - man you're just a sinner now

You put your left foot out - keep it all in place
Work your way right into my case
First you try to bed me - you make my backbone slide...
But when you find you bled me - skip on by...
Keep on - stroke me, stroke me -

Give me the business all night long...
You're so together boy...
Say you're a winner but man you're just a sinner now

Better listen now...(said) it ain't no joke
Let your conscience fail ya...just do the stroke
Don'tcha take no chances...keep your eye on top
Do your fancy dances...you can't stop, you just stroke
