  • High five, high five
    High five, high five
    "C'mon on! Eight
    Everybody! C'mon
    Seven! C'mon, now
    Six! Five
    Aw, yeah, I like that shit"

    When I rock it's like a high five
    Want a slap in the face I love the taste
    All my days with my wheelchair ways
    Watch me die in my suicide high
    I don't mean it 'cause I only come on to you
    When I step to the room with a powerful motion
    Leopard skin let the records spin
    'Round and round with the speed of sound

    High five! More dead than alive
    Rocking the plastic like a man from the Catskills
    High five! More dead than alive
    Rocking the plastic like a man from the Catskills

    Rocky mountain low we gotta go
    Put that gadget in the random mode
    Cripple candy rocking the candy
    Rhumba, brickshot, doing the foxtrot
    In my car sweating like a dog
    Beers and chairs no frontiers
    On my way from the 'Frisco Bay
    Dixieland, soda-pop man

    High five! More dead than alive
    Rocking the plastic like a man from the Catskills
    High five! More dead than alive
    Rocking the plastic like a man from the Catskills

    Yeah, put that machine in random mode
    Talking about popping jugger
    Like the last century
    "Turn that shit off, man! What's wrong with you?
    Man, get the other record! Damn"

    High five! More dead than alive
    Rocking the plastic like a man from the Catskills
    High five! More dead than alive
    Rocking the plastic like a man from the Catskills
    High five! More dead than alive
    Rocking the plastic like a man from the Catskills
    High five! More dead than alive
    Rocking the plastic like a man from the Catskills

    "Ok, now. Do like designer jeans
    Everybody, designer jeans! say, say, say, say, say
    Ooh, la la
    Sasoon
    C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
    Everybody

    One more time, let me hear you say
    Ooh, la la, Sasoon
    Just do it everybody, c'mon
    Now I want the ladies

    All the ladies, say
    Sergio Valente
    Sing it, girl
    Let me hear you say
    Sergio Valente
    Say, Jordache" Writer/s: Beck David Hansen, John Robert King, Michael S. Simpson, Vincent Willis
