Extra, extra, read all about it

I’m talkin’ front page story all over the world
It shook up men, women, boys and girls
The headlines read, “If you wanna be rich
Then you better make sure that you got your shh”, a come on

Hit it
Hot off the press
For everybody here, we’re gonna do our best
To make you holler, make you scream
I heard it on the news, it’s an incredible scene

I just got the word
Our jammin’ is connectin’ everybody, I heard
To make you party, make you sweat
You’re even gonna feel it through your TV set

I said the headlines
Headlines
(Have you heard it?)
Headlines, headlines
(Hit it)

Special award
It’s rockin’ in the front paper, jammin’ the sports
It makes your body soakin’ wet
A devastatin’ rhythm that you’ll never forget

I just got the news
Got it printed in the paper, everything that you do
You wanna party, rock and roll
It’s a hot news tip for your radio

It’s the headlines
(Tell me have you heard it?)
Headlines
(Read all about it, baby)

Headlines
(Headlines)
Headlines
(Woo, hit it)

Here’s the dirt
Extra, extra, read all about it
(Extra, extra, read all about it)
We got the beat and we gonna shout it
(We got the beat and we gonna shout it)

We got down to the parlor, it was rough, raw
Said you gotta do somethin’ ‘stead of nothin’ at all
Because there’s people you desire, people you admire
You wanna go places ‘fore you get too tired

We want the truth about what’s been goin’ on
So we chitter chatter, gossip on our telephone
Well, now our time is running out, we ain’t got forever
Everybody wants a piece of lifelong pleasure
Oh, yeah, yeah

Headlines
(Read all about it)
Headlines
(Headlines)
It’s in the streets

Headlines
(Headlines)
Headlines
(Hit it)

Everything that you do is written in the paper
It’s in the news

Turned to the classifieds, searchin’ through the lost and found
Heard it from a little birdie, told me what was goin’ down
Got your business in the streets

I read across the states he had to say you like to mess around
That’s when I knew that you were sneakin’ out all over town
I read it in the headlines

Headlining the news
Midnight Star’s fresh new beat conquers the world
The Bears win the pennant

Lottery winner blows $40 million
I wish he’d blew it on me
Today’s weather, hot and steamy
I gotta go, have a great day

We’ve got the beat
We’re gonna shout it

We want the truth about what’s been goin’ on
So we chitter chatter, gossip on our telephone
(We’ve got the beat)
Well, now our time is running out, we ain’t got forever
Everybody wants a piece of lifelong pleasure

Headlines
(Everybody’s talkin’ ‘bout it)
Headlines
(Tell me have you heard it?)

Headlines
(Front page story)
Headlines
(Headlines)

Headlines
(Light ‘em up, light ‘em up)
Headlines
(Oh, have you heard it?)

Headlines
(Headlines)
Headlines
(Ooh, hit it)
