  • It's the kids baby, It's the kids baby
    It's the kids c'mon
    It's the kids baby, It's the kids baby
    And you know I'm coming through
    It's the kids baby, It's the kids baby
    its the kids c'mon
    It's the kids baby, Leave it up
    Leave it up to me

    Leave it up to the kids grown-ups own up
    Even when they mess up acting like
    It's all sewn up, mom and dad think
    We need to have a talk
    Let the kids rule the world
    Boys and girls, you can't blame us for
    Nada, you taught us to follow orders
    'Cause I'm the baby (done da da)
    Monkey see (ah ah) monkey do no more
    The puck stops here what's the score
    We might start a play fight just to
    Imitate you, don't you feel silly
    Now shame on you, don't start to cry
    No I don't blame you, after all you're
    Just a grown up, watch gonna do?

    Yo, It's the kids (keep it locked up)
    Got to heat it up, heat it up
    What's the deal (what do you want,
    Got to give it up, give it up)
    Make way (put it on
    Gonna hook it up, hook it up)
    How's that (leave it up
    Leave it up to me)
    Yo, It's the kids (I can do it if I
    Speed it up, speed it up)
    What, what (set it off
    Gonna live it up, live it up)
    Make way (put it on
    Gonna hook it up, hook it up)
    And how's that (leave it up
    Leave it up to me)

    When the gown-ups go AWOL
    Nothin's gonna fall, here com the
    Young ones, the baby crime busters
    Big people listen up, relax now
    We're equal and if the money's right
    Then we might make a sequel
    Do I hear a please
    I love it when you beg me
    I need a bribe now just to
    Move me light speed
    And I might fit you in if you make way
    So let me talk to my people
    We could save the day

    Yo, It's the kids (keep it locked up)
    Got to heat it up, heat it up
    What's the deal (what you want,
    Got to give it up, give it up)
    Make way (put it on
    Gonna hook it up, hook it up)
    How's that (leave it up
    Leave it up to me)
    Yo, It's the kids ( I can do it if I
    Speed it up, speed it up)'
    What, what (set it off
    Gonna live it up, live it up)
    Make way (put it on
    Gonna hook it up, hook it up)
    And how's that (leave it up
    Leave it up to me)

    Hoo hoo ow ow, hoo ow ow, hoo hoo ow ow, hoo
    (Now what you gonna do)
    Mom and day they'll be getting
    On my nerves, workin' 'em
    Workin' 'em, is that what I deserve
    But after many days, hey
    I want them back tell me who's gonna
    Bake my cake and all that
    Who's gonna suffer from
    My practical jokes and listen when
    I moan, hey, it's gotta be my folks
    And who's gonna get me up
    Ready for the flight and who's gonna
    Tell me everything's all right
    But wait a minute, that sounded so soft
    That won't impress a hot chick
    Like Lara Croft, don't play me out
    'Cause I'll switch you off, you'll be
    Too old for too long, singing
    The same song, if you're old enough
    To vote, then it's time to sit down
    It's all about the little homies
    Taking the crown, so if you're
    Too young to vote, here's your chance
    To have a say, c'mon everybody
    Help me save the day

    Yo, It's the kids (keep it locked up)
    Got to heat it up, heat it up
    What's the deal (what you want,
    Got to give it up, give it up)
    Make way (put it on
    Gonna hook it up, hook it up)
    How's that (leave it up
    Leave it up to me)
    Yo, It's the kids ( I can do it if I
    Speed it up, speed it up)
    What, what (set it off
    Gonna live it up, live it up)
    Make way (put it on
    Gonna hook it up, hook it up)
    And how's that (leave it up
    Leave it up to me)

    Yo, It's the kids (keep it locked up)
    got to heat it up, heat it up
    What's the deal (what you want,
    Got to give it up, give it up)
    Make way (put it on
    Gonna hook it up, hook it up)
    How's that (leave it up
    Leave it up to me)
    Yo, It's the kids ( I can do it if I
    Speed it up, speed it up)
    What, what (set it off
    Gonna live it up, live it up)
    Make way (put it on
    Gonna hook it up, hook it up)
    And how's that (leave it up
    Leave it up to me)Writer/s: LUCAS SECON, MICHAEL MARK POWER
