[Verse 1]
F#m                      E4         E
Yoh, pretty ladies, a - round the world,
       D          D    E           E   F#
Got a weird thing to show you, so tell all the boys and girls,
            F#m                           E4    E
Tell your brother, your sister, and your momma too,
                  D      D   E         E   F#
'Cause we're a - bout to go down, and you know just what to do!


[Verse 2]
          F#m                    E4         E
Wave your hands in the air, like you don't care,
  D       D    E         E   F#
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare,
         F#m                     E4             E
Do your dance,... do your dance, do your dance quick, mama,
D        D    E         E    F#
    Come on, baby, tell me what's the word?


[Verse 3]
        F#m          E4    E
A - word up! Every - body say,
  D            D   E             E  F#
When you hear the call, you got to get it under way,
    F#m           E4     E        D           D   E
Word up! It's the code word, no matter where you say it,
 E   F#
You know that you'll be heard!


[Verse 4]
              F#m             E4           E
Now, all you sucker DJ's who think you're fly,
         D        D   E         E   F#
There's got to be a reason, and we know the reason why,
           F#m                    E4        E
You try to put on those airs, and act real cool,
         D          D     E         E      F#
But you got to re - al - ise that you're acting like fools!


[Verse 5]
           F#m                         E4       E
If there's music we can use it, we're free to dance,
D              D   E              E      F#
We don't have the time for psy - cho - logical romance,
        F#m                E4             E
No ro - mance, no romance, no romance for me, momma,
D        D    E         E   F#
    Come on, baby, tell me what's the word?

I'm confirm with thes tab. Simple but a genius song.
Get on stage and perform this funky stuff with a big fat accoustic guitar. Crowd is gettin' totaly crazy.
