Keep your contributions by your side and...
Stroke me, stroke me

Put your left foot out, keep it all in pace
Work your way right into my face
First you try to bet me, you make my backbone slide
When you find you've let me slip keep on...

Better listen now, said it ain't no joke
Let your conscience fail ya' just doin' the stroke
Don't ya' take no chances, keep your eye on top
Do your fances dances, you can't stop you just...
