Sugarhill Gang – 8th Wonder lyrics

[Big Bank Hank]
Clap your hands everybody
And everybody just clap your hands
Ahh fly girls, clap your hands
Ahh fly guys, clap your hands

[Master G] Well if you're feeling alright and you think you're on
[Wonder Mike] Ah-somebody let me know
[Big Bank Hank] Well everybody in the place, put a whistle in your face
[all three] Scream it out and say *whistle* yooooo, hit it!

[Wonder Mike]
You don't stop
A-rock the rhythm that makes your finger pop
I said ah, hip-hop, ah thanks a lot
Ah c'mon everybody gimme whatcha got

[Master G]
I'm gonna tell you a little story about the Sugarhill Gang
[all three] With the pow pow boogie and a big bang bang
And if you wanna rap to the Sugarhill to the beat

[all three]
Gotta rap in the key of R-A-P
Now that is over I'm ready to jam
Want all you people, to clap your hands
Tonight we're gon-na, scream and shout
We're gonna turn this motha -- sucka out
To all of you people that are ready to jam
Scream it out and say, I am! (I AM!)
Some-body! (SOME-BODY!) Now you know you're hot

[Master G]
Ah see I met this girl and I said to her, "Honey
if you wanna be my baby you got ta gimme money!"
Turned around, didn't mean no harm
I knocked her out, with my vicious charm
I said, "No no baby it's not like that
Ya see I'm all about makin that cold cold cash"
Started jivin around, started messin wit her head
And next thing I know, she wanted to go to *whistle*
But to turn me on, you got to be the best
Cause I'm the Master G, I don't take no mess
Like T-N-T, I'm dynamite
Ya see I rock your body to the early light
And when you wake up in the morning you'll see I'm gone
And check it out girl, you're all alone
Cause you just been hit by the Capricorn King
I rocked you gentle, I rocked you/me
I rocked you in and I rocked you out
You made me scream but I made you shout *whistle*

[Wonder Mike]
Go dang diddy dang di-dang di-dang diggy diggy
Dang diddy dang di-dang di-dang diggy diggy

[Big Bank Hank]
See it's up my back, it's around my neck
Woo-HAH! Got them all in check
See it's up my back, it's around my neck
Woo-HAH! Got them all in check

[all three]
Ah let's scream, and let's shout
And let's turn this function out
and keep keep it on, but you don't rush
Ah let's make this party the real Cold Crush
Let's scream, and let's shout
Ah let's turn this function out
and keep keep it on, but you don't quit
Let's make the party the sure *whistle*

[Wonder Mike]
Once upon a time not long ago
everybody had on their radio
And then the fella came on with a groovy noise
to put the wiggle in the women and girls and boys
The word got around about three cool cats
who put the ?foot?, BACK, in the pack
And let me tell you party people just who we be
With the help of Big Bank and the Master G

*Interlude*

[Master G] So get up
[Big Bank Hank] Throwdown
[Wonder Mike] We're funkward bound
[all three] Hey the Sugarhill Gang is in your town
[Big Bank Hank] Now baby doll
[Wonder Mike] And all you daddy-o's
[all three] You better get ready to move your toes
[Master G] So get up
[Big Bank Hank] Throwdown
[Wonder Mike] We're funkward bound
[all three] Hey the Sugarhill Gang is in your town
[Big Bank Hank] Now baby doll
[Wonder Mike] And all you daddy-o's
[all three] Scream it out and say yoooo, hit it!

Shake it, but don't break it
Cause I know we can make make it
And if you're ready to party and you're dressed to kill
Somebody say, Sugarhill! (SUGARHILL!)

[Wonder Mike]

What you see is what you get
And you ain't seen nothin yet
I don't think I'm bad don't box in no karate
Just an MC to put the boogie in your body

Don't wear diamond rings or drive big cars
But the people just treat us like movie stars

[Master G]

[Master G]
Well I'm the Master G, and I'm the best
All the ladies say my voice is rated X

So let your fingers do the walkin through the yellow page
