Lyrics

Hokey Pokie

Written By: Se7eneves

HOOK..
Go head – Go head gone - Let me see you - Work it out/
Do the Hokey Pokie and Shake it All About/
Take it down to the Ground – Then Turn it All Around/
Go Head Work it out let me hear you Scream and Shot – Like/
Go – Go - ah – Go Head – Work it Out/
Go – Go - ah – Go Head – Work it Out/
Go – Go - ah – Go Head – Work it Out/
We Can do this Right here in the North or The South Tonight!/

1st verse
Yeah you heard right it’s the Hokey Pokie/
A lil-something to Dance to Dosey-Dosey/ - uh
Throw them hands see you must not Know me/
But it’s ya boy Neves from the 704 Man/
Get wit the program – The Train is Rolling/
The Lanes is Open – The pedals to the Floor – And/
I might stop just to brush off the Jordan’s/
But otherwise I’m either writing or Recording/
Rhymers now days either biting or just Boring/
The New Breeds here in flight yeah soaring/
I don’t make it rain I make it pour Man/
Come thru like a monsoon and destroy lands/
All hands on deck I demand your respect/
Ah rookie or a vet we can put’em in check/
Throw ya hands up – Now put cha hands down/
Throw ya hands up – And Turn it all Around/

2nd verse
Let’s get it going the club is already over flowing/
And the beat is banging and shaking just like a wind storm/
Stay calm we don’t want nobody here to panic/
The games dying a slow death we need a medic/
So put the right mics up in the lime light/
Ya style lack luster like diamonds that won’t shine right/
And I don’t need 5 mics for a highlight/
Can’t even pick ah single because they all tight/
I’m ah boss like Tony Soprano/
And Real Gifted like Ray Charles play the Piano/
How I jump on the mental I put the pups in the kennel/
There’s only big dogs walking around wit real potential/
Son I’ll send you right back home/
So don’t come around here and try and take my Bone/
Go head work it out do it on your own/
Go head work it out in the car on ya Phone/

3rd verse.
NC – to – NJ – to VA – MI – Yes it’s I the Real Emcee/
Them say – We don’t play but no Compendia/
When they - come my way – I’m gonna Then Lay/
The smack down – Cats Now the Real Sin say/
Is Back now – Back Down – I’m Gonna End they/
Career – This Here – Is on FIRE/
It’s Clear – This Year – Is All SIRE/
Coming up behind ya – Repping the Carolinas/
The Grass stays greener the Honeys here are Finer/
We Breed Emcees Not bubble gum Rhymers/
Tags on they Neck say Made in China/
Turn the lights low – I’m going into Hype mode/
Leave’em in the dust like the Mic had Nitro/
Go head work it out let tonight go/
And don’t hold back cause the Pressure just might Blow/
