    (Yeah-ee yeah.
    Yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yeah-ee Yeah)
    Ha! Ha!

    Walked in this place surprised to see
    A big girl gettin' busy, just rockin' to the go-go beat
    The way she shook her booty sho' looked good to me
    I said, come here, big girl, won't you rock my world
    Show that dance to me.' She was

    Doin' the butt.
    Hey pretty, pretty
    When you get that notion, put your backfield in motion, hey
    Doin' the butt.
    Hey sexy, sexy
    Ain't nothing wrong, if you
    Want to do the butt all night long

    (Hey yeah-ee yeah.
    Yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yeah-ee yeah)
    Ow, what you gonna do about it
    (Yeah-ee yeah, yeah-ee)
    Shake it! (Yeah-ee, yeah-ee yeah)

    I took that girl out on the floor
    She rocked me from the backside
    We did the butt til it made me sore
    Now, it's a physical thing, but not hard to do
    You just shake-a shake shake shake
    Shake-a shake shake
    Doin' the butt the whole night through, come on

    Doin' the butt.
    Hey pretty, pretty
    When you get that notion, put your backfield in motion, hey
    Doin' the butt. Hey sexy, sexy
    Ain't nothing wrong, if you
    Want to do the butt all night long

    That's right!
    Shake your butt.
    Come on!
    Gimme that butt!

    We're screamin' at girls with the big ol' butt, sing it
    (Yeah-ee yeah.
    Yeah-ee) Ow! (Yeah-ee, yeah-ee yeah)

  • B- Bassman from Racine, WiShe's Gotta Have was an independent film from Spike Lee and not a major film. There is a difference between the two.

    B-Bassman
  • Rollot from The Burgh, PaThe Lyrics are not "Melissa got a big ol' butt now
    And Sonya got a big ol' butt (oh yeah?)"

    The correct lyrics are "Melissa Got a big ol' butt (oh yeah), Bo Turner got a bubble butt (oh yeah)"

    This is a fact as Bo's sister was friends with the guys from E.U. and they put their names in the song on purpose. Now, those other lyrics may be the published ones but if you listen to the song, you will see I am right.
  • Dbp from Lynn, MaSchool Daze IS NOT Spike Lee's first major picture. She's Gotta Have It came out two years before School Daze.
  • Joshua from La Crosse, WiJay: If you're referring to the chorus "Doin' da butt", there's definitely a double entendre there but somehow I doubt it was intentional. For what it's worth, the first time I heard this I thought the lyric was "Do it in da butt" - which obviously would have changed the song's meaning, not to mention conjured up the infamous Newlywed Game legend.
  • Jay from Atlanta, GaMetaphorically speaking, I'm not sure of the significance of the title(?) Is it meant to be taken as an allegory or should I take a more literal view?
  • James from Hamilton, GaPeople that are familiar with the roots of "go-go" know that it started in D.C. In the mid 70's not late 80's and the other groups that mastered that sound were trouble funk, rare essence and the guy that sarted it all Mr. Chuck Brown with the song "Bustin' Loose."
  • Elson from Los Angeles, CaThis song was written by legendary bassist Marcus Miller, known for his virtuoso bass solo skills. Ironically, the bass line for this song is very simple.
  • Brian from Meriden, CtA woman's ass has always been a central part of rock and roll.
