[Master G]

Ah see I met this girl and I said to her, "Honey

Turned around, didn't mean no harm

I knocked her out, with my vicious charm

I said, "No no baby it's not like that

Ya see I'm all about makin that cold cold cash"

Started jivin around, started messin wit her head

And next thing I know, she wanted to go to *whistle*

But to turn me on, you got to be the best

Cause I'm the Master G, I don't take no mess

Like T-N-T, I'm dynamite

Ya see I rock your body to the early light

And when you wake up in the morning you'll see I'm gone

And check it out girl, you're all alone

Cause you just been hit by the Capricorn King

I rocked you gentle, I rocked you/me

I rocked you in and I rocked you out

You made me scream but I made you shout *whistle*

[Wonder Mike]

Once upon a time not long ago

everybody had on their radio

And then the fella came on with a groovy noise

to put the wiggle in the women and girls and boys

The word got around about three cool cats

who put the ?foot?, BACK, in the pack

And let me tell you party people just who we be

With the help of Big Bank and the Master G

*Interlude*
