Old School Feeling
Rebelution Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I think you know just what I need
And I need it bad
One drop for my emptiness
Yeah, I need it bad
Lovers Rock take away my stress
Yeah, I need it bad
Let's take it back
So I forget
Hey there, DJ, can you take my request?

Play me something with that old school feeling
Run it back again, come on, run it back again
Play me something with that old school feeling
Run it back again, come on, run it back again

Flashback to 1995, I was a youth
Testing the water doing things I shouldn't do
I had no plan and no timing and no clue
Sometimes it only takes a song just to cool down the mood
I know I got a real solution to the problem
Cool my emotions when it's hot
Took a minute but we got down to the bottom
To cool it down, and that's just what we want

Play me something with that old school feeling
Run it back again, come on, run it back again
Play me something with that old school feeling
Run it back again, come on, run it back again

I think you know just what I need
And I need it bad
One drop for my emptiness
Yeah, I need it bad
Lovers Rock take away my stress
Yeah, I need it bad
Let's take it back
So I forget
Hey there, DJ, can you take my request?

Play me something with that old school feeling
Run it back again, come on, run it back again




Play me something with that old school feeling
Run it back again, come on, run it back again
