What time is it!?

Hangin' by the backstage door
Decked out like a queen
Your body's sayin' 21
But your face says 17
My intuition tells me
That U're waitin' 4 the band
Before U get your hopes up
One thing understand (Oh, hey)

CHORUS:
Wild and loose, that's how it's got 2 be
Cuz that's the only kind of dame that appeals 2 me
Wild and loose, the only life I know
Just havin' one big party from show 2 show

Talkin' trash 2 Jimmy Jam
"Tell us where the party's at"
We don't care who U came with
We'll take care of that
Just meet us at the Gotel
Room 602, ooh
Tell your mama U won't be home
Cuz we got plans 4 U (Oh, yeah)

CHORUS

Universal freak delight, where'd U get those thighs?
Where did U get the nerve 2 wear that miniskirt so high?
Don't worry baby, I can keep a secret 4 as long as snow is white
Hey Jesse? (Yeah?) Come here man, guess what I did last night?

CHORUS

Baby, U ain't no saint {repeat verse twice}
Cuz there ain't no in-between
Either U come or U can't
Now get loose, let me hear U scream

CHORUS

(Wild and loose) {repeats in BG}
Ah pardon me, say it one more time, huh
I can't hit it baby, maybe I'm blind
Everybody know U got 2 be, yeah
Cuz ain't nobody cool but me, slap me!
Somebody, somebody sing it
Tell your mama U won't be home, huh
Everybody know U got 2 be, yeah
Ain't nobody cool but me, now break it down

{2 separate conversations take place}
Kim, wasn't the concert great?
Minneapolis is mine
Oh yeah, it sure was
She was right in the front row
I know man, she was sittin' there
Did U see Jesse up there, wasn't he fine?
She was lookin' at me so nasty, U know what I'm sayin'?
Oh yeah
But the groove was so strong
Morris looked so good
I know what I'm gonna be doin' in the back of the bus 2 night!
Yeah, but I think Jesse is cuter
Oh yeah
Am I right? (Bein' cool)
I wonder what they are doin' after the concert
Ah, I got it 2 night Jimmy (Alright)
Oh yeah, I got a strange feelin' they're nasty
U had it last night (That'll be cool) (Check this out)
Yeah, I bet I'll remember this concert 4 the rest of my life
The lady called me up last night
She said "Morris, U can be so cute, pretty, fine, handsome, whatever"
So will I
Did U see Jesse's eyes, aren't they pretty?
What can I say? U know..
Yeah, I know what U sayin' man
Oh, they're so pretty
No one at school will ever believe I talked 2 Morris on the phone last night
Hey look, are they sorry, that group that played before us?
Oh, I believe U
Jimmy Jam, U know we good
He's voice was so soft, he sounded so sweet
U know when we stepped in that club
Oh yeah, he's so cool
We saw Monte sittin' back there with his little girlfirends
Yeah, but now I want 2 meet'em in person
I said "What is it like bein' cool?"
(Hey, hey, hey, what's happenin'?)
Some people have it 2 cool
(U girls wanna go 2 a party 2 night?)
Oh no (Man, U know)
Oh, beat it jerk
Alright, look
God, get away, eh yuck
Man, look at these 2 chicks over.. man, look at this, look at this
Man, they look, they look wild and loose
Kim, U ain't gonna believe it
The guys from The Time are right behind U
Man, the girls are lookin' right
Go on, won't y'all try and rap at'em and see what time..
Are U serious?
They should take them jeans off, that's what
No, I'm not.. look, I.. I mean yes I am! Over there
I mean, U know, U know I got somethin' 4'em 2 put on
Oh my God
Can U believe it? Look
U saw what I was with the other night
Should I look?
Should I go over and see if he remembers me?
Oh yeah
It's kinda right (Ha ha ha) (Do whatever U want) (ha ha ha ha)
But what should I say?
Say somethin'
I got the back of the bus 2 night, that's all I got 2 say
Hi..Hi Morris
Hmph! (I know man)
Hmm, excuse me
Hello, do I know U?
(Hmph! Yeah, I'm just..)
Yeah, U talked 2 me on the phone last night
Is that right? Well, U sure don't look like U sound
Well, excuse me!
It's OK baby, I got things 2 do, I'll talk 2 U later
Jerk! That was the worst concert I've ever been 2

(Wild and loose) {x4}

CHORUS

(Wild and loose) {repeats in BG}
I can't hear U singin'
Help me out, help me out, hey
Baby, I got plans 4 U
Everybody get loose

Fellas? (Yeah?)
Where the party at? (Right here under your shoes)
Fellas? (Yeah?)
What time is it? (Time 2 get wild and loose)
Showtime
Fellas? (Yeah?)
Where the party at? (Right here under your shoes)
Fellas? (Yeah?)
What time is it? (Time 2 get wild and loose)

Fellas? (Yeah?)
Where the party at? (Right here under your shoes)
[Mother]
Fellas? (Yeah?)

Somebody bring me a mirror
