Some other versions of "The Love Song"

Everybody should get down oh yes (oh yes) oh yes

Everybody groove to the music
And do what you like to oh yeah (oh yeah)

Y'all know we rock thorough (Yeah we rock thorough)
For the whole world (The whole world)
Five boroughs so check it out

I came all the way from Brooklyn to present my rep
Lyrically deep like sleep; I rock hard like Led Zepp
I take steps and leave impressions on planets
More complicated than life so rappers can not understand it

Talking that hardcore ****; but I don't buy it
Sit down eat your slice of pizza and be quiet!
Cause all that noise you talk is not needed
I cut headz off at the knees and leave em all defeated

So stay seated, or get deleted from the program
Let it be known I don't follow cause I'm my own man
With my own plan, cause the mind is infinite
We got four minutes, so everybody get widdit!

Cause all my people out in Brooklyn get LOVE
Cause all my people out in Queens get LOVE
Uptown and Boogie Down you get LOVE
Strong Island/Shaolin you get LOVE

You can send MC's in - squads of six and we take two each
I stand out like seeing Moses at the beach - splitting waves
My style's the newest rhyme craze
Blow up, like grenades, hit words, without shades

Hold ya lighter, the Flatbush dolla camp writer
Roll with more Dangerous Minds than Michelle Pfeiffer
Pay the piper, I lay the pipe just like a plumber
Went without a ride for one too many summers, NOW

I'm out to get the cream like Carnation
Send headz home like George Bush did to Haitians
No patience, I got ta have it, the fine fabric
I learned The Facts of Life from Mrs. Garrett

But now I'ma do it my Way like Carlito
Whether it's in sweatpants or even tuxedos
We know - if this rap thing, don't make loot
I take it back to '86, stick *****z for they Troops

We come to tell the people dem, we're talkin one love
One are we in love, a way dem cyan't dub
They'll find it in a pub, and I said in our club
Wha-wha-one love (one love) gonna take it, gonna take it

Gonna take your jeans and your dungarees and it will be on sale
Things I can try to make you move on the wail
Aiyyo, no play yo, don't go astray yo
No matter follow me come be a one of these day yo

I can't believe what dem want in all de mornin'
So I, I came back in all de evenin'
Da same thing that made the lights out, be sing
Rude boy, bad-a-bing, bad-a-bing, now everybody

Cause all my people Up North get LOVE
And all my people Down South get LOVE
And all my people in the East get LOVE
And all my peoples out West get LOVE

And all over the world we get LOVE
All over the world we get LOVE
All over the world we get LOVE

We get, love everywhere we go
We get love at every show
We get love everywhere we ride
We get love at every stop

This is a station, identification
For the entire nation
Come to bring sensation, oh yes!
It's Da Bush Babee clan

Come to make you understand
That we get love all over the land
All over the land
All over the land, all over the land

All over the land, all over the land
Yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Word up, it's the Mos Def
With Da Bush Babees

And mad man Merc and the De La
Word up, bringing it to you the nine-six
It's all magic no tricks, knahmsayin?
Comin widdit

You gonna love it when you get it
Ev-ery-body, groove to the music
Ev-ery-body, groove to the music
Ev-ery-body... HEY YOU GUYS!!
