Don't make me start without you
Oh la la la ohhh
Uh red one
Et cetera
Hey

Ey, hey, I'm like a beast
Ey, hey, I'm like a beast
The DJ dropped the record Imma start a stampede
He dropped the record I'll start a stampede

Ey boy, I'll push it out
Ey boy, I'll push it out
Fire in my belly like a merry go round
From front to the back I'll make you go round

Yeah like me, get on the dance floor
Yeah like me
(don't wanna start without you)

Oh here I go
Drip dropping way down low
You bound to miss
Windin' ta this
Don't let me start without you

Oh here I go
Your moving way to slow
I'm coming up
Put down your cup
Don't make me start without you

(I don't wanna start without you)
(I don't wanna start without you)

Eh boy, way that I move
Eh boy, way that I move

Body like a weapon that'll make you go boom
Hit like a drum, I'll make you go (BOOM)

Hey boy, oi were you at?
Hey boy, oi were you at?

Your the only one that I want on my back

Yeah like me, get on the dance floor

Oh here I go,
Drip dropping way down low
You bound to miss

(Don't make me start without you)

Oh here I go,
Drip dropping way down low
You bound to miss
Windin' ta this
Don't let me start without you

Oh here I go
Your moving way to slow
I'm coming up




Put down your cup
Don't make me start without you

If we only had songs like this representing the uk in Eurovision we might have a chance of winning

@ThuyNguyen-nw3dl

Agrees

@kerrypalmerfranklin962

@Thuy Nguyen nq

@aidygooner

Or if the British government and the ignorant population stop being unlikeable twats as Eurovision has sadly become political. We had Blue represent us few years ago, one of our biggest bands ever, and still didn't come close to winning although they prevented us from finishing last AGAIN that year lol
