[Puff Intro]
Yeah
The old school
To the new school
Bad Boy, remix, let's go

[Black Rob]
Like that
Black gon' slide with Mike Jack
Puff done remixed one hell of a track
Put me on it
I wanna know
How many want it?
Damn, it feels good to see people love on it
For those who love slow down
'Member Motown had a brotha' happy as shit
I mean the whole sound
Bangin' and catch six-four since we was shorties
Fee owes now rebooked from California

Carry 40's but I 'member them times in '79
When I first started to rhyme
Sometimes I gots to look back at what it was
The good old days
The triple o'shays when there was love

I want you back
But I can't grab that far
It's how it is
When you're living like a star, bad boy
Come on, let's go

[MJ]
When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces
Always made you
Stand out in a crowd
But someone picked you from the bunch
When love was all it took
Now it's much too late for me
To take a second look

Oh baby, give me one more chance
(To show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
(Back in your heart)
Oh, darlin' I was blind to let you go
(Let you go baby)
But now since I see you in his arms
(I want you back)
Oh, I do now
(I want you back)
Oh, oh, baby
(I want you back)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(I want you back)
Nah, nah, nah, nah

Trying to live without your love
Is one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl
That I know wrong from right
Every street you walk on
I lay tear stains on the ground
Following the girl
I didn't even want you around

Let me tell ya now
Oh baby all I need is one more chance
(To show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
(Back in your heart)
Oh darlin' I was blind to let you go
(Let you go baby)
But now since I see you in his arms
(I want you back)

[Black Rob]
It's just like Jermain Jackson
Tito, Mike and Marlon
Only think on my mind now is stardom
Blowin' the F-up
My game's stepped up
'Member when Mike and them
First came to record
Singin' hits like Skywriter
My Girl, People Make The World Go 'Round
Mama's Pearl, Can't Loose it
Joyful jukebox music
Never Can Say Goodbye
That's why we use it

It's money honey
So I gots to be there
And I'mma be yo Sugar Daddy
Say it's real
Versachi chair, PD, life of the party
Bad Boy, make joys for everbody

Jackson 5 Chorus in background while:

[Puff Daddy]
Motown
Berry Gordy
History
Let's go, come on
Yeah
Come on
Yeah

This is the remix, come on
From the old to the new
Come on
Motown
Rock on
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Jackson 5 Chorus until fade
