Who will provide the grand design? / What is yours and what is mine? / 'Cause there is no more new frontier / We have got to make it here Work it harder, make it better / Do it faster, makes us / More than ever hour after hour / Work is never over I said a hip-hop, the hippie the hippie / To the hip, hip hop you don't stop / Rock it to the bang bang boogie / Say up jump the boogie to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat... I met her in a club down in old Soho / Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry-cola / C O L A cola / She walked up to me and she asked me to dance / I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said Lola / L O L A Lola Don't push me / 'Cause I'm close to the edge / I'm trying not to lose my head / It's like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder / How I keep from going under Cause I'm Slim Shady, yes, I'm the real Shady / All you other Slim Shadys are just imitating / So won't the real Slim Shady please stand up / Please stand up, please stand up?
