KoRn - Word up

[ #26318 ]

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

[Chorus:]
Now c'mon baby tell me what's the word
Now, word up
(ahh ahh)
Everybody say
When you hear the call you got to get it under way
Word up
(ahh ahh)
It's the call, word
No matter where you say it
You know that you'll be heard

Now while you sucker DJs
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 act real cool
But you got to realize
That you're acting like fools
If there's music, we can use it
Be free to dance

We don't have the time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance
No romance for me, mom

[Chorus:]
C'mon baby tell me what's the word
Now, word up
(ahh ahh)
Everybody say
When you hear the call you got to get it under way
Word up
(ahh ahh)
It's the call, word
No matter where you say it
You know that you'll be heard

(woo!)

[Bridge:]
Word up
(ahh ahh)
Everybody say
When you hear the call you got to get it under way
Word up
(ahh ahh)
It's the call, word
No matter where you say it
You know that you'll be heard

Word up
(ahh ahh)
Everybody say
When you hear the call you got to get it under way
Word up
(ahh ahh)
It's the call, word
No matter where you say it
You know that you'll be heard

Loading... please wait.
  • I think you mean Cameo [allmusic.com], maybe even Gun [allmusic.com], but please not Korn! Anything but Korn!

    Larry Blackmon must be cringing .. at least until he gets the royality cheque :)

    • I trust the first link you gave was not meant to return me a "Error 5 No Program Name Found" :-)

      What's so wrong about KoRn? :-)

      Incidentally, I think I'm being hipnotized by this song...
      • I did a cut-n-paste, but didn't realise the URL didn't contain the full path to Cameo. Try this one [allmusic.com]

        I borrowed the first few albums and really tried to like them, but just found them annoying and uninspiring.

        Incidentally, I think I'm being hipnotized by this song...

        Listen to the original or Gun's cover, they are much better.

        • Somehow... I feel more inclined to hear this [allmusic.com] than this [allmusic.com] O:-)

          Still, I'll give it a try when I can :-) (that is, when I find it)
          • The original "Word Up" by Cameo actually was quite a huge club hit, at the time (mid 80's, I think). I found it pretty decent, too. "Single Life" and "She's Strange" are some more of their better tracks.

            And even though I have Korn's "Best Of" album, I've not yet found the courage to listen to their cover version. I've heard part of their cover of Pink Floyd's track, once. Ugh.

            I prefer Korn to be Korn. "A.D.I.D.A.S.", "Freak On A Leash", "Falling Away From Me", all great. But not this. Please.
