Block Party Lyrics

by Lisa Lopes

Uh, uh, shake, uh, shake it down now
Uh, uh, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah, yeah one time
Two times, shake it down now

Remember way back in the day (hey hey)
When the kids from around the way
Used to come out and play
And the double dutch bus
Had you bumpin' on down the street
Tryin' to move your feet
While you shake your little booty
To the groovey beat (uh)
To the beat
To the beat (beat)
You hit the corner and you start
Hey y'all there's a party on the other block
We hit the jackpot
Jackpot (what what)
And it's only 12 o'clock
And the sun is hot
Free soda pop
We gonna to rock rock rock rock...

What's your name
Lisa
And where you from
9th street
Where you goin'
To the party
Can I come
Uh huh
Ooh...they're playin' hop scotch

Come on
Come on hop with me
Come on
Ooh...them boys is pop lockin'
Come on
Come on bounce with me

We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they're playing our favorite songs

We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they're playing our favorite songs

I'm a big city girl
From all over the world
And I do what I wanna do
Right foot left shoe
Then you take it on down
Then you shake it around
Bring it up
Clap your hands
Then you turn it all around

We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they're playing our favorite songs

Remember when we did the wop (pop pop)
And you used to make that head bop (bop)
Like it would never stop (stop)
And them other grown folks
Gettin' busy with the gigolo
Drinkin' Michelob
It was 6am before they hit the road (uh)
Hit the road hit the road (road)
Them fat gold chains and high top banks (hey)
Run DMC was all you ever played (yeah)
Shell toe Adidas
No strings (mmm mmmm)
There's somethin' cookin' in the pop
About to hit the spot
Boombox
Play me some of that hip hop (hip hop)
Hip hop hip hop hip hop.....

What's your name
Lisa
And where you from
9th street
Where you goin'
To the party
Can I come
Uh huh
Ooh...they 'bout to get it on

Come on
Come on bounce with me
Come on
Ooh...they on the dance floor
Come on
Come on rock with me

We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they're playing our favorite songs

We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they're playing our favorite songs

Come on
Come on bounce with me
Come on
Come on groove with me
Come on
Come on rock with me
Come on
Come on hop with me

We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they played our favorite songs

We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they played our favorite songs

I'm a big city girl
From all over the world
And I do what I wanna do
Right foot left shoe
Then you take it on down
Then you shake it around
Bring it up
Clap your hands
Then you turn it all around

We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they're playing our favorite songs

We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they're playing our favorite songs

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
