or
Salt-N-Pepa

You know life is all about expression
You only live once, and you're not coming back
So express yourself, yeah

Express yourself, you gotta be you and only you, babe
Express yourself, and let me be me
Express yourself, don't tell me what I cannot do, baby
Come on and work your body

Now Joe want to be like Bob
Bob got it goin' on with no job
And everything Rob got he got from Robin
And everything she got she got ho-hoppin'
My girl Jilly want to be like Jackie
Fat rope chains and I think that's wick-wacky
Tom and Dick want to be like Harry
Little do they know he's bitin' on Barry
Stan was a scam, but Vinnie's legit
Mercedes coupe hometroop with no kit
A businessman with a beeper for a reason
Not like Tim because it's in this season

Express yourself, you gotta be you and only you, babe
Express yourself, and let me be me
Express yourself, don't tell me what I cannot do, baby
Come on and work your body

Hey Pep, you up next

Yes, I'm Pep and there ain't nobody
Like my body, yes, I'm somebody
No, I'm sorry, I'm-a rock this Mardis Gras
Until the party ends, friends
Yes, I'm blessed, and I know who I am
I express myself on every jam
I'm not a man, but I'm in command
Hot damn, I got an all-girl band
And I wear the gear, yeah, I want to wear it, too
I don't care, dear, go ahead and stare (oooo)
Afraid to be you, livin' in fear (boo)
Expression is rare, I dare you

Express yourself, you gotta be you and only you, babe
Express yourself, and let me be me
Express yourself, don't tell me what I cannot do, baby
Come on and work your body

Yo, excuse us while we rap
Go ahead, girls, express yourself!

My party, your party, anytime drop in
Cold hip-hop is always rockin'
Don't you like it when the music drop
Jump, spread out, and stop?
Now bring in the go-go (uh-oh)
Look at how my butt go rock from left to the right
You want to step to me, groove me
I know you want to do me
Come on now, fellas, don't fight

At my door they're bum-rushin'
To hear the percussion
Sound of my go-go band
I've long ago learned my lesson
It's all about expression
Will the real Salt and Pepa please stand?
And

Express yourself, you've got to be you, babe
Express yourself, and let me be me
Express yourself, you've got to be you, babe
Express yourself, don't tell me what to do, babe

De La Soul, Run DMC
MC Lyte, Melodie, and Sweet Tee
Doug E. Fresh, KRS in your chest
Jungle Brothers, Synquis and Finessee
Grandmaster Flash, Melle Mel, Stetsasonic
Kurtis Blow, T La Rock, and Mantronix
L.L. Cool J., Kid 'N Play, and Kwame
Dana Dane, Daddy Kane, and Shante
Hey, Heavy D., Eric B. and Rakim
Look out, y'all, Chubb Rock is rockin'
UTFO, G Rap, and Polo
Don't you sleep on my man cool Moe
Antoinette, Fric and Frac, and Latifah
Slick Rick's back with his hit "Mona Lisa"
Shan, P.E., Special Ed, Craig G.
That's right, Just-Ice, D-Nice, and the 9X Posse
Rob Base, and my friends Whodini
Biz Markie, and EPMD
Fat Boys made noise, and don't you forget it
Yeah, K9, and Ultramagnetic
This is dedicated to the New York posse
Salt and Pepa says peace, we're last but not least

Express yourself, you gotta be you and only you, babe
Express yourself, and let me be me
Express yourself, don't tell me what I cannot do, baby
Come on and work your body

Express yourself, you've got to be you, babe
Express yourself, and let me be me
Express yourself, you've got to be you, babe
Express yourself, and let me be me
Express yourself...
