Yo pretty ladies around the world Got a weird thing to show you So tell all the boys and girls Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too 'Cause we're about to go down And you know just what to do Wave your hands in the air like you don't care Glide by the people as they start to look and stare Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma Come on baby tell me what's the word Word up everybody say When you hear the call you've got to get it underway Word up it's the code word No matter where you say it you know that you'll be heard Now all you sucker DJ's who think you're fly There's got to be a reason and we know the reason why You try to put on those Airs and you act real cool Got to realize that you're acting like fools If there's music we can use it You're free to dance We don't have the time for psychological romance No romance, no romance, no romance for me mamma Come on baby tell me what's the word Word up everybody say When you hear the call you've got to get it underway Dial L for love C'mon all you people sing W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up
