(Before first verse, during the “Ooohs”)
D       G       Bm      A

[Verse 1]
D
Pop music 101
Some simple instructions
G
For a good first impression
Now let’s start with a first one:
Bm
A minor chord, tensions grow;
Fade in the bass like so;
G
Now with momentum go “stop”
And bring the beat back
D
It’s called Four-on-the-floor
A beat you can’t ignore
G
I’ll bring sexy back once more [“yeah!”]
They’ll love that [“yeah!”] fo’ sho’!
Bm
The chords are 1-4-6-4
Now I’m talkin familiar
G
Harmony in thirds, not fourths
Will take you into the pre-chorus

[Pre-Chorus]
Bm
Real quick now, don’t you bore us
A
Hurry up and get to the chorus!
G
Dumb down, they won’t ignore us

[Chorus]
                G
Get to the floor!
          Bm              A                G
And here’s some words you should know:
          D             A          G
Like “DJ never let me go”
           Bm                A           G
"pour shots", and then I’ll "lose control"!
           D            A
Or “baby baby baby baby baby”

G               A
How about one more last word like
G                 Bm   A
"Hey girl, we’ve only got tonight"?
G                  A
Some things just go together like:
G                                Bm           A
"higher", "desire" and "fire;" "higher", "desire" and "fire"

[Verse 2]
D
Guitar and strings like these
To sound like Black Eyed Peas
G
This one’s a filtered swing
This one’s a legend key
Bm
Hipster music on cassette
But you probably don’t know that yet
G
808’s-… [“hey! ho!”] Hell yeah!
D
Heartfelt pop anthems
From Mumford and his Sons
G
Gang vocals here we come
Bm
“I…
Will…
A
Always wait”
[wobble bass]

[Pre-Chorus]
Bm
Real quick now, don’t you bore us
A
Hurry up and get to the chorus!
G
Dumb down, they won’t ignore us

[Chorus]
                G
Get to the floor!
          Bm              A                G
And here’s some words you should know:
          D             A          G
Like “DJ never let me go”
           Bm                A           G
"pour shots", and then I’ll "lose control"!
           D            A
Or “baby baby baby baby baby”

G               A
How about one more last word like
G                 Bm   A
"Hey girl, we’ve only got tonight"?
G                  A
Some things just go together like:
G                                Bm           A
"higher", "desire" and "fire;" "higher", "desire" and "fire"

[Bridge]
D
I can pitch and shift my voice if I want
G
I can pitch and shift my voice if I want
Bm
I can pitch and shift my voice if I want
A
I can make my voice low

D
The bridge is
The part when
You bring in
A rapper friend. [“Sup?”]

G
You simplify, you slow the beat
Abbreviate, feature defeat
Bm
Quick now, fill in the gaps. [“Okay!!”]
Right up and down, eliminate that which you
A
Really would rap an’
Give them a classic like “Get-get-get-get…”

[Chorus]
                G
Get to the floor!
          Bm              A                G
And here’s some words you should know:
          D             A          G
Like “DJ never let me go”
           Bm                A           G
"pour shots", and then I’ll "lose control"!
           D            A
Or “baby baby baby baby baby”

G               A
How about one more last word like
G                 Bm   A
"Hey girl, we’ve only got tonight"?
G                  A
Some things just go together like:
G                                Bm           A
"higher", "desire" and "fire;" "higher", "desire" and "fire"

[random dance music and beat-boxing weirdness]
