Sugarhill Gang, The - The Word Is Out Lyrics




Hey crew! (what?) Turn up the bass!
(Why?) We're back! Let's rock the place!
We're back, Jack, back and stack up
The funk, that keeps your toes in tap

Get ready! (yeah!) cause the groove is hot
Get, get ready, give it all you got
Just stop what you're doing, lend us your ear
We wanna make something loud and clear

If you take off your shoes, and jam the box
We're gonna rock you (huh!) right out your socks
We don't need to brag, it's plain to see
That our music has high velocity

You see, the word is out, and all the people like
Big Bank, Master Gee, and Wonder Mike
Sugar...hill!

We came here tonight, because you like to party
So all you daddy-o's (get up!), young ladies, work your body
To get on down!

A long time passed, since we've been on
People said "you lost your touch!"
But you never could keep a good man down
So we came back in the clutch

Like a fine wine takes years to age
And the cream comes to the top, a-dig it!
You know me and my crew, will make your fingers pop

Word is out, we want y'all to know
That we came here to rock this show
So get out your seat, don't let you be stopped
The beat, that makes your fingers pop!

We came here tonight, because you like to party
So all you daddy-o's, (get up!), young ladies, work your body
And get on down!

Hey hey, hey ladies, from coast to coast
I missed all around, but I missed ya most
So what's my name? I think you outta know by know
So I won't waste time, I'll just throw down

We're back on the one, the people's thrill
And if we don't rock, nobody will
This one's for you, so listen close
It's the ladies out there I love the most

And if you love me too, and you feel alright
Get up out your seat, do what you like
Don't you know you're special, one of a kind
Take me, too look and see what's inside

We won't let you down, we're here to stay
We'll maybe come into your town one day
So to you ladies out there, I can't resist
I'll seal this rockin' with a kiss

Word is out, we want y'all to know
That we came here to rock this show
So get out your seat, don't let you be stopped
The beat, that makes your fingers pop!

We came here tonight, because you like to party
So all you daddy-o's (get up!), young ladies, work your body
So get on down!

I hear ya, if you like the sounds
And you wanna get-get-get, get on down
Well the Gang is here, so everybody come along
Don't stop it, keep it-keep it rockin' on

(Don't touch that dial!) We've got the style
And all kinds of grooves that'll make you smile
So hop on the bus, catch a cab
Because the party we have is bound to be bad

To the people on the floor, there's more to come
There's a lot more fun where this came from
(We rock to the max!) We do it right
(Why?) You deserve a break tonight!

Because the week is through, when you want to chill
So you check out the sounds of Sugarhill
So remember that a party is on the 1
When you join the gang to have big fun

The Word is out, we want y'all to know
That we came here to rock this show
Just get out your seat, don't let you be stopped
The beat, that makes your fingers pop!

The word is out, the word is out,
The word is out, the word is out,
So let's rock!

Who's got the juice?
Sugarhill got the juice!
