  • Party-people!
    Yeah,
    Tag Team music, in full effect!
    That's me, DC The Brain Supreme, and my man Steve Roll'n!
    We're kickin the flow!
    We're kickin' the flow!
    And it goes a little something like this!

    Tag Team, back again
    Check it to wreck it, let's begin
    Party on, party people, let me hear some noise
    DC's in the house, jump, jump, rejoice
    Says there's a party over here, a party over there
    Wave your hands in the air, shake your derriere
    These three words mean you're gettin' busy,
    Whoomp, there it is! Hit me!

    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!

    Upside down and inside out
    I'm 'bout to show all you folks what it's all about
    Now it's time for a (nig') to get on the mic
    And make this mother (fu') party hype
    I'm takin' it back to the old school
    'Cause I'm an old fool who's so cool
    If you want to get down, I'ma show you the way
    Whoomp, there it is! Lemme hear ya say

    Whoomp! Shaka-laka-shaka-laka-shaka-laka-shaka
    Whoomp! Shaka-laka-shaka-laka-shaka-laka-shaka
    Whoomp! Shaka-laka-shaka-laka-shaka-laka-shaka
    Whoomp! Shaka-laka-shaka-laka-shaka-laka-shaka

    Point blank - gin and juice I drink
    And then invent as I puff on dank
    Rock the mic, uh oh, I crave skin
    Rip *shit*, find a honey dip to dip it in
    Slam dunk it, stick it, flip it and ride
    That B-double-O-T-Y, oh my
    Ooh, that's it, come on, come on
    Whoomp, there it is! I'm done.

    Hey baby! (Whoomp! There it is!)
    Hey baby! (Whoomp! There it is!)

    Some say I'm crazy cause I'm pushing up dasies
    The underground sound that you (nig') have found
    Amazing, outstanding, demanding,
    Comanding, you people dancing
    (Whoo!) (Shi') That's a breath-taker
    Our producer, a.k.a. the undertaker
    You want to come down to the underground old school?
    Here's a shovel, can you dig it, fool?

    Can you dig it? (We can dig it!)
    Can y'all dig it? (We can dig it!)
    Can you dig it? (We can dig it!)
    Can y'all dig it? (We can dig it!)
    Can you dig it? (We can dig it!)
    Can y'all dig it? (We can dig it!)
    Can you dig it? (We can dig it!)
    Can y'all dig it? (We can dig it!)

    W-H-double O-M-P as I flow,
    To the fly (shi) from the school of old
    Hard core keep' the folklore wrecked
    Three to the two and 1 mike check
    Mad skill, flow ill, on the mess of steel
    That's the thrill of the microphone I just killed
    Party people, there's your party
    Tag Team is through
    Whoomp there it is, I thought you knew!

    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!

    Yeah,
    Tag Team music, comin' straight at 'cha!
    That's me, DC The Brain Supreme,
    And my man Steve Roll'n!
    Bring it back y'all,
    Bring it back y'all,
    Bring it back, here we go!

    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!
    Whoomp, there it is!

  • George Pope from Vancouver BcNow having read the lyrics on Google, I see there was a lot of Disney character references & voices I missed. . . Makes sense if Rick Dees was an influence. Disco was a crossover from rock to pop, & this song is a sort of crossover from rap to mainstream pop, leaning on the rap side, while Dees hit the disco('70s pop) side harder. It's all good -- variety & interesting stuff is what I seek! Too much repetition & pablum lyrics in most of today's pop & rap.

    Go back to rock that had beautiful POETRY set to music, & singers who sang from deep in their heart & diaghram!

    & players who through their heart & soul into their instrument!
  • George Pope from Vancouver BcCopyright law needs to beseriously updated -- a DJ is exposed to THOUSANDS of songs, ew & old -- of course, they'll influence a future lyrics writing career move! Did he STEAL some thing? ordid he enhance some thing with a newflavour that comes from the e4xtra exposure he's had to varoius music types & examples? To say he stole the exact track used in a studio is a serious assertion, & I see the others rescinded that claim (that was a clear "put up or shut up" moment); thefact it's been recanted suggests there wasn't en0ugh to it to stand up in court, but I'm glad they accepted that & didn't embark on a long feud of hate. Maybe one day they'll record together. . . :) I'm all for multiple-influenced people making new music in whatever style or genre that bursts out of them!

    This is cool. I like this version better, actually; but "like" is a strong word -- it's too repetitive -- they did sneak in s bit of dirty - I heard the radio's autocensor cut out something in the second third or so. I heard just enough to know it was sexual in nature -- I've no beef with sexual content, if it's not glrifying hate or abuse. . .
  • Ain't Like That from Dead CenterI had heard from a friend "there it is" is a drawn-out way to say "dat ass". Now I can't unhear it...
  • Donny Swift from 20009Who actually wrote the song...WHOOOMP THERE IT IS...!! Is Robert Meekins listed as a writer...producer...anything...?
  • John from Nashville, TnOne-hit wonders the Tag Team own the masters to this four-million selling recording.
