New Edition - Where It All Started Lyrics




[Dialogue:] Picture this where it all started was back in Boston, Mass. Some time ago (believe that) and by reopening the doors to all youth a little salt was thrown on me and my boys (you know what I'm sayin') but now we're back picking up where we left off (aw yeah) and through this song, process of elimination will be done (you better believe that)

Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike
Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike

The beginning of a dream
Where our ideas were born
(Tell em Ricky) To understand what this really means
Let's set the record straight
Once and for all and I'll tell you

'Cause other people imitate
And try their best to recreate
This is where it all started from
So they only perpetrate
But they can never duplicate
This is where it all started from

(Yo, it's on you Ron) It's nice to be the original
That all the counterfeits like to bite off
We only take it as a compliment
When they copy some of our material

To stay the best among the rest
We work to keep our movements fresh
This is where it all started from
You listen up dap instead of being clones
Why don't you think of something on your own
This is where it all started from

(Now there's one more thing we think you should know)
Don't be a victim to the wanna be
This is where it all started from
(A fake, a fake)
'Cause no other's ever gonna be (like us)
This is where it all started from
(Take that)

Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, and Mike
Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, and Mike
(We're cool) Cool it coooool it now
Let's sweeten it up
Candy girl
Count it off... 1... 2... 1... 2
But you better not, better not
Count me out

'Cause other people imitate
And try their best to recreate
This is where it all started from
So they only perpetrate
But they can never duplicate
This is where it all started from

To stay the best among the rest
We work to keep our movements fresh
This is where it all started from
You listen up dap instead of being clones
Why don't you think of something on your own
This is where it all started from

Yo wait a minute! Hold up! Wait! Stop! Huh! You didn't know we was coming back like this on 'em my brother.

    Ralph + Mike were my favorites. Had crushes on them; Johnny grew on me.

  4. Neal Robinson

    It wasn't NKOTB they were talking about all the new groups that had come out after them because none of them would ever say that N.E. was an influence on them

    Nana Anokye

    Backstreet Boys has actually named new edition as an inspiration

  5. D James Morgan

    The prequel to "Oh yeah, it feels so good"

  6. Katrice McGee

    My fav part of this song when they play a lil bit of their old songs 😂💕

  7. NOT YOU

    They are not true New Edition fans, nor do they really love music like that.

  12. MJJUOuttakes Songs

    _This is my favorite song right here from _*_New Edition*, truly a masterpiece and yet it's underrated smh this song deserve a hit from they're album p.s. I didn't know that this song was a diss track against *New Kids On The Block_*_ when I first discover this song_

    DrRiddlez2015

    @Durrell Thomas "Stealing" Miss me with that BS, meanwhile Maurice blatantly ripped off the J5 to create NE's image, FOH

    DrRiddlez2015

    @Durrell Thomas what "style" bubblegum pop. it's been around long before NE,

    IceManLikeGervin

    @Durrell Thomas Facts...they all bit off of New Edition who was based on the J5. If NE wasn't successful there would be no follow up groups whether pop or R&B based...
