Get up, Do Your Thing

from Love Story by Monk Turner

lyrics

I was gone for a minute but I'm back in the game
Just want to cut loose and do do my thing
Gettin on the scene like Steven Seagal
I'm gonna do this thing, I'm gonna give it my all
Wonderlust
It's marvelous
Like an earthquake kit I am prepared
And like a good Republican you should be scared
Of the what the who the what the when the why and
How many roads must a man walk down before he can don his Don Juan crown
Cause I'm in a whole new world like the Lion King
And I sing la-de-date-day got my suit on and I'm ready to play

You gonna do this thing
I'm gonna do this thing
You gonna do this thing
I'm gonna do this thing
Well come on get up and let's do this thing

Now when I went to school I carried lunch in a bag
With an apple for a sister named Bonita Applebum
Girl you've gotta put me on because
I'm the joint
Now we talk every night and that shows culture
I reminisce with bliss of when I first met you it
It was a Monday
Maybe it was Tuesday
Possibly a Wednesday
Naw maybe Thursday
Friday
Saturday
Sunday
What a day I knew it was a good day didn't have to use my AK
But I remain absolutely kinetic
Microphone checker
Breaker breaker 1 9 what is this
Got a love jones for your body and your skin tone

You gonna do this thing
I'm gonna do this thing
You gonna do this thing
I'm gonna do this thing
A come on get up and let's do this thing

There she goes again
She was the dopest Mexican
But relationships they change in many way perplexing them
Man I hit the block
Lovely hunnies breaking necks again
Hugging on a couple blowing kisses at the rest of them
Then she happened to walk by
Fly as a apple with thick thighs
A pair of ire eyes that dig deep to make the happiest kid cry
Spent a year and a half out thuggin
Now I'm back and ready for lovin
See that most of these women are buggin girl
It's only you or nothing
And I'll say it
So I make you can see that I mean it
You're the one I want to be with please believe it
I was gone for a minute but I'm back for something steady
So if you aint
Girl just tell your friends cause I'm ready

You gonna do this thing
I'm gonna do this thing
You gonna do this thing
I'm gonna do this thing
A come on get up and let's do this thing
