The showstopper Lyrics

The showstopper by Salt N Pepa  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The showstopper [Once again my friends and countrymen

Lend us your ears and eyes

The Showstopper is stupid fresh

When will you be satisfied?]



Yo, bust it Sandy D.

Yo, what's up?

Have you ever been to jams when people just stand

And they pay to come in, and they don't even dance?

They're so uncouth they think they're cute

Am I lying? No, it's the truth

Right now I'm gonna show you how it's supposed to be

Cuz we, the Salt and Pepa MCs

Will chance the circumstance rocks your pants

My fans, this is called the jam



Sandy...What?...Sandy...What?

Sandy, we'll be breaking hearts, ya know

That's true, it's all about money though

But Douglas and Richie won't like it (So?)

Come on then, let's stop the show



Yo, this beat is stupid fresh

Huh, yeah, you know it, cold dissed Doug Fresh

Top choice, of course, the rest is Salt

Set it off, do it Set it off, do it

Set it off, do it Set it off, do it



Listen now, I ain't down to rap

Are you serious? Just like a heart attack

Come on now, Cher! I don't want to

Get on now, Cher! Do I have to? Yeah!



Well I really don't have too much to say

Yo, then here's my story anyway

It's just a little somethin' too hot to be missed, girl

I was going downtown (What, Cher?), serious

Cher took the train home from work

p**sed off because of a stain on my shirt

The train made a stop (Where?) Two hundred and five

And a little soft guy walked inside



He wore plastic Bally's and a booty Gucci suit

Cracked a little smile and showed a fake gold tooth

Was he cute? Negative, he was a dupe

Instead of Polo he wore Brute

La-di-da-di What?

La-di-da-di Uh-huh, word to mother



The boy was rude, I didn't approve

He tried to make a move I said, "Stop it, dude!"

I started to cuss and began to swear

He said, "Listen girl, I like the way you comb your hair

And I like the stylish clothes you wear

Is there something that I can do

To show how much I really care?

Like when I'm all alone with you

My heart just skips a beat or two

And you put that fire inside of me

That shows it's more than just a dream

And I like it, and I like it"

I said, "Please, don't get excited!"



Don't you know I'm too young for you, mister?

Sally from the Valley - she's my sister

And that lady you dissed - that was my mother

You hurt two of my family, you won't get another

He tried to deny it, said it was a lie

He wanted to explain, explain to me why

I said, "Don't bother, there's really no need

Sally died when she hit the concrete"

He said, "Come on, you're puttin' me on"

As I got up to walk he sang this song:



"Oh, baby please don't go

What must I do to show

The way I feel for you, girl

Is going to be real?

But in reality, I know we'll never be

Cuz you're still walking away from me"



A dis, a dis
