Word Up
Cameo Lyrics

Yo pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you
So tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too

'Cause we're about to go down
And you know just what to do
Wave your hands in the air like you don't care
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare

Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody say
When you hear the call you've got to get it underway
Word up it's the code word
No matter where you say it you know that you'll be heard

Now all you sucker DJ's who think you're fly
There's got to be a reason and we know the reason why
You try to put on those Airs and you act real cool
Got to realize that you're acting like fools

If there's music we can use it
You're free to dance
We don't have the time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody say
When you hear the call you've got to get it underway

Dial L for love

C'mon all you people sing
W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up

W.O.R.D. up,
W.O.R.D. up

They played this at Target while I was working today and all I can say is thank you for face masks so it wasn't super obvious I was lip syncing along and an idiot!

@MysticS1ay3r Nah those store playlists definitely suck. They play the songs they play because they are "safe" and for the most part won't offened anyone. Also has something to do with influencing purchases. I used to work at a big box store like target and they songs are the same across all their stores.

@MysticS1ay3r Hmm. Strangely, most of my co-workers agree with me about the overall suckiness of the playlist. I guess the diverse team I work with are all in the minority. 🤔


@Heather Tomlinson Those playlists vary across the country. They’re determined by what is popular in the area you’re in. Just because you don’t like it, doesn’t mean it’s not popular. It just means you’re in the minority.
