  • Workin', workin' up a black sweat [Repeat: x4]

    I don't want to take my clothes off,
    But I do.
    I don't want to turn nobody on,
    Unless it's you.
    I don't want to dance to hard, baby
    But this is a groove (yes it is! Fonky)
    I'm hot, and I don't care who knows it,
    I got a job to do (think I ain't, come on)

    I'm workin', workin' up a black sweat
    I'm workin', workin' up a black sweat
    I'm workin', oooh!
    Workin' up a black sweat
    Workin', workin' up a black sweat

    I don't want to hurt your pride,
    But I got to (got to hurt 'em, gonna hurt 'em)
    You better take your woman and hide, (hide)
    I'm about to (come, what you gotta do boy! got to, got to)
    Honey what's really good (sugar what's really good)
    Break you off like you knew I would
    I got a brand new dance
    I got a brand new dance
    And it's called the

    Workin', workin' up a black sweat
    I'm workin', workin' up a black sweat
    I'm workin'
    Workin' up a black sweat
    Workin', workin' up a black sweat
    Workin' up a black sweat
    Workin'

    Breakdown
    You can act hard if you want to
    This groove will make you sweet
    You be screamin' like a white lady
    When I count two three
    One, two, three!

    Workin', workin' up a black sweat
    I'm workin', workin' up a black sweat
    I'm workin', workin' up a black
    Oh, workin' up a black, hey!
