Track Name: D.T.M.A. (Dance This Mess Around)
INTRO:
You don’t wanna put me in the corner (yeah)
Whatever (whatever), I don’t care

VERSE 1:
Remember when you held my hand
Remember when you said you’d take a stand, the cause
We used to walk, talk, in the name of love
Before they took our thoughts
Think it over
Think it over in your mind

CHORUS:
Why don’t you dance with me?
I’m just a little girl
Why don’t you dance with me?
I’m just a little girl
Why don’t you dance with me?
I’m just a little black girl

VERSE 2:
Everybody goes to parties
They dance this mess around
They do the hypocrite
‘Cuz they ain’t got no swagger
Hippi, hippi, hippi, why you slippin’ and you trippin’
Hippi, hippi, hippi, talkin’ loud and sayin’ nothing

(Well doesn’t that make you feel a lot better? Uh uh. What you say?)

So why you put us in the corner?
We’re gonna dance this mess around
We’re not leaving til it’s over
We’re gonna dance this mess around.
Shake, shake (I’m sorry, whatever) shake, shake

OUTRO:
We used to walk, talk, in the name of love (It’s not over til it’s over)
Walk, talk, in the name of love (We’re not leavin’ cause they’re cheatin’)
We used to walk, talk, in the name of love (It’s not over til it’s over)
Dance this mess around
