Salt 'n' Pepa – Let's Talk About Aids lyrics

[Hit me
Come on]

Chorus
Let's talk about s** baby
Let's talk about you and me
Let's talk about all the good things
And the bad things that may be
Let's talk about s**
Let's talk about s**
Let's talk about s**
Let's talk about s**

Yo let's talk about aids (go on) to the unconcerned and uninformed
You think you can't get it? Well you're wrong
Don't dismiss, this, or blacklist the topic
That ain't gonna stop it
Now if you go about it right you just might save your life
Don't be uptight, come join the fight
We're gonna tell you how you can get it and how you won't
All of the do's and all of the don't's
I got some news for you so listen, please
It's not a black, white, or gay disease
Are you ready, Pep? Yeah, I'm set
All right then, come on, bet

Chorus

[So if you do come up hiv positive (mmm-hmmm) or have aids (yeah)
We just want you to know (what?) that there are treatments (that's right)
And the earlier, the sooner, detected the better off you'll be
Tell 'em please
Hey, yo, Pep, you get checked?
Yep, every year, G]

Now, you don't get aids from kisses, touches, mesquito bites, or huggin'
Toilet seats, telephones, stop buggin'
You get it for s** or a dirty drug needle
Anal or oral now, people
Women can give it to men and men mostly to women
The facts are simple, right and exact
And once you get it, there's no turnin' back for you
There ain't a cure so you gotta be sure
Protect yourself or don't have s** anymore
Mothers might give it to their babies through the womb
Or through birth, don't be an ass and assume
Aids ain't got no smell or taste
It don't care about your race
You see a nice, kind face - you think you're safe?
I'm sorry, that's just not the case
There's no debate, conversate with your mate
And don't wait until it's too late

Chorus

Ladies, all the ladies, louder now, help me out
Come on, all the ladies - let's practice safe s**, all right
(repeat)

[Yo, Salt...
What?
You know what else will stop the spread of aids?
Unh-huh
If everybody stop cheating and messing around and just stay with one person
... And wear condoms]
