  • You've got to trust your instinct
    And let go of regret
    You've got to bet on yourself now star
    'Cause that's your best bet
    Watch me now with a wicked and wild and I said
    We come with the funky style
    That gets us known for the show
    And we'll mix the hip hop reggae if we say it is so
    And fuck the naysayers 'cause they don't mean a thing
    'Cause this is what style we bring

    Now it's morning but last night's on my mind
    There's something I need to get off my chest
    And no matter what may come to shine
    The dream will always be mine

    All mixed up you don't know what to do
    Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
    Thought a freak might be the thing
    But the first could be the last so just get off your ass
    All mixed up you don't know what to do
    Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
    Thought a freak might be the thing
    But you know this will pass so just get off your ass

    You've got to trust your instinct
    And let go of regret
    You've got to bet on yourself now star
    'Cause that's your best bet
    Watch me now with a wicked and wild and I said
    Sick sick bit got to have it
    Like bustin' in on a session but you got to call it quits
    Sick sick bit just can't quit
    Fact that you don't even know makes it fully legit

    Now it's morning but last night's on my mind
    There's something I need to get off my chest
    And no matter what will come to shine
    The dream will always be mine

    You keep me coming
    That is a gal that'll kill 'dem stunning
    Keep me coming
    That is a gal that'll kill 'dem stunning
    Keep me coming
    That is a gal that'll kill 'dem stunning
    Keep me coming
    That is a gal that'll kill 'dem stunning

    You make me nervous throat dry
    My brain is empty don't know why
    But I saw you doing something
    Which is really truly nothing
    But you could bust me out all day

    Many moons since first I saw you
    Many moons since first we did the do
    Many moons since first I saw you
    Many moons since first we did the do

    And why did I try when I knew it was no and
    Why did I try when I saw it was so
    But save it for late we should just let it skate
    'Cause the waiting feel is fine Writer/s: NICHOLAS HEXUM, DOUGLAS MARTINEZ
