  1. Who Do You Think You Are lyrics (1996)

    The race is on to get out of the bottom
    The top is high so your roots are forgotten
    Giving is good as long as you're getting
    What's driving you? It's ambition and betting

    I said who do you think you are? (Do you think are)
    I said "whooo?"
    Some kind of superstar
    You have got to
    Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
    Show me how good you are
    Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
    Show how good you are

    You're swelling out in the wrong direction
    You've got the bug, superstar, you've been bitten
    Your trumpet's blowing for far too long
    Climbing the snake of the ladder, but you're wrong

    I said who do you think you are? (Do you think are)
    I said "who?"
    Some kind of superstar
    You have got to
    Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
    Show me how good you are
    Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
    Show how good you are
    You have got to reach on up, never lose your soul
    You have got to reach on up, never lose control

    I said who do you think you are? (Do you think are)
    I said "who?"
    Some kind of superstar
    You have got to
    Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
    Show me how good you are
    Swing it, shake it, move it, make it
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it
    Show how good you are

    Swing it (swing), shake it (shake), move it (move it), make it (make it)
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it (trust), use it (use), prove it (prove it), groove it (groove it)
    Show me how good you areSwing it (swing), shake it (shake), move it (move it), make it (make it)
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it (trust), use it (use), prove it (prove it), groove it (groove it)
    Show me how good you areSwing it (swing), shake it (shake), move it (move it), make it (make it)
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it (trust), use it (use), prove it (prove it), groove it (groove it)
    Show me how good you are
    Swing it (swing), shake it (shake), move it (move it), make it (make it)
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it (trust), use it (use), prove it (prove it), groove it (groove it)
    Show me how good you are
    Swing it (swing), shake it (shake), move it (move it), make it (make it)
    Who do you think you are?
    Trust it (trust), use it (use), prove it (prove it), groove it (groove it)

  2. Wannabe lyrics (1996)

    Yo, I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want.
    So, tell me what you want, what you really really want.
    I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want.
    So, tell me what you want, what you really really want.
    I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna really, really, really wanna zigazig, ah.

    If you want my future forget my past.
    If you wanna get with me better make it fast.
    Now don't go wasting my precious time.
    Get your act together, we could be just fine.

    I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want.
    So, tell me what you want, what you really really want.
    I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna really, really, really wanna zigazig, ah.

    If you wanna be my lover
    You gotta get with my friends
    (gotta get with my friends).
    Make it last forever,
    Friendship never ends.
    If you wanna be my lover
    You have got to give.
    Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is.

    What do you think about that? Now you know how I feel.
    Say you can handle my love. Are you for real
    (are you for real)?
    I won't be hasty, I'll give you a try.
    If you really bug me then I'll say goodbye.

    Yo, I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want.
    So, tell me what you want, what you really really want.
    I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna—, I wanna really, really, really wanna zigazig, ah.

    If you wanna be my love
    You gotta get with my friends
    (gotta get with my friends).
    Make it last forever,
    Friendship never ends.
    If you wanna be my lover
    You have got to give.
    (You got to give.)
    Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is.

    So here's a story from A to Z.
    You wanna get with me?
    You gotta listen carefully.
    We got Em in the place
    Who likes it in your face.
    She got G like MC
    Who likes it on an—Easy V
    Doesn't come for free.
    She's a real lady.
    And as for me?
    Ha-ha! You'll see.

    Slam your body down and wind it all around.
    Slam your body down and wind it all around.

    If you wanna be my lover
    You gotta get with my friends
    (gotta get with my friends).
    Make it last forever,
    Friendship never ends.
    If you wanna be my lover
    You have got to give.
    (You got to give.)
    Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is.

    If you wanna be my lover
    You gotta—, you gotta—, you gotta—, you gotta—,
    You gotta slam, slam, slam, slam.
    Make it last forever.

    Slam your body down and wind it all around.
    Slam your body down and wind it all around.

    Slam your body down and wind it all around.
    Slam your body down and zigazig, ah.

    If you wanna be my lover.

  3. Stop lyrics (1997)

    You just walk in, I make you smile
    It's cool but
    You don't even know me
    You take an inch, I run a mile
    Can't win you're
    Always right behind me
    And we know that you could go and find some other
    Take or leave it or just don't even bother
    Caught in a craze, it's just a phase
    Or will this be around forever
    Don't you know it's going too fast (ooh, to fast)
    Racing so heard you know it won't last (ooh, won't last)
    Don't you know why can't you see
    Slow it down, read the sign
    So you know just where you're going

    Stop right now thank you very much
    I need somebody with a human touch
    Hey you always on the run
    Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun
    Do do do do
    Do do do do
    Do do do always be together
    Ba da ba ba
    Ba da ba ba
    Ba da ba stay that way forever

    And we know that you can go and find some other
    Take or leave it 'cause we've always got each other
    You know who you are and yes, you're gonna breakdown
    You've crossed the line so you're gonna have to turnaround
    Don't you know it's going too fast (ooh, to fast)
    Racing so hard you know it won't last (ooh, won't last)
    Don't you know why can't you see
    Slow it down, read the sign
    So you know just where you're going

    Stop right now thank you very much
    I need somebody with a human touch
    Hey you always on the run
    Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun

    Gotta keep it down honey, lay your back on the line
    'Cause I don't care about the money, don't be wasting my time
    You need less speed, get off my case
    You gotta slow it down baby, just get out of my face

    Stop right now thank you very much
    I need somebody with a human touch
    Hey you always on the run
    Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun
    Stop right now thank you very much
    I need somebody with a human touch
    Hey you always on the run (stop right now)
    Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun
    Stop right now thank you very much
    I need somebody with a human touch (we wanna thank, we wanna thank you)
    Hey you always on the run (stop right now)
    Gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun (thank you very much, thank you very much)
