#1 Stop It Girl

Stop it! Stop it, Girl! 
Stop it! Stop it, Girl! 

I said stop it, girl. Look what you’re doing to me 
It’s just not right. Can’t you see? 
This ain’t the way it’s supposed to be, 
I should be lovin’ you and you lovin’ me 

[mechanical voice] Stop Girl, before he breaks your heart 

Stop girl, before he breaks your heart 
I’m the one who loves you, right from the start 
Stop girl, don’t let him bring you down 
I’m the one who loves you and I’ll be around 

He could never love you like I love you, girl 
He could never say the things, like I need you in my world 
Girl, I really love you, but you won’t give me your time 
You tell me that he loves you so and you can’t make up your mind 

Girl, he’s not true 
Now I know there’s lovin’ for you 
It’s all not true 
It’s not true, baby 
OOOOOOOH 

[Chorus]

I guess I’m gonna love you for my whole life long 
Girl, he’s not the one for you, I can tell you nothing wrong 
Tell me that you love me, let me take you by the hand 
Girl, my love is oh so true, try and understand 

Girl, it’s so true 
All of my lovin’ for you 
It’s all so true 
So true, Baby 
OOOOOOOH 

Stop it, Girl! 
Stop it, Girl 
[Electric guitar bridge]

Stop Girl, before he breaks your heart 
(Don’t let him break your heart) 
I’m the one that loves you, right from the start 
(Right from the start) 
Stop Girl, don’t let him bring you down 
(don’t let him bring you down) 
I’m the one that needs you and I’ll be around 
(I’ll be around) 
Stop it Girl, before he breaks your heart 
(Oh Baby) 

Don’t let him 
Don’t let him 
Don’t let him 
Bring you down 

[repeat chorus to fade out]

#2 Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time)

I gave my heart and soul to you, girl 
(Now didn’t I do it, baby, didn’t I do it, baby?) 
Gave you the love you never knew, girl, oh 
(Didn’t I do it baby, didn’t I do it baby?) 
I’ve cried so many times and that’s no lie 
It seems to make you laugh each time I cry 

[Chorus:]
Didn’t I blow your mind this time 
Didn’t I 
Didn’t I blow your mind this time 
Didn’t I, this time? 

I thought that heart of yours was true, girl 
(Now, didn’t I think it, baby, didn’t I think it, baby?) 
But this time I’m really leaving you girl, oh 
(Hope you know it, baby, hope you know it, baby) 

Ten times or more, yes, I walked out that door 
Get this into your head, there’ll be no more 

[Chorus:]

(Didn’t I do it baby, didn’t I do it baby?) 
(Didn’t I do it baby, didn’t I do it baby?) 

Ten times or more, yes, I walked out that door 
Get this into your head, there’ll be no more 

[Chorus Ad lib :]

[Spoken: ]
Girl, can we talk for a second? 
(Baby can we talk) 
I know it’s been a long time 
Since someone blew your mind, like I did 
(Ooh, baby) 
But there’ll be other times 
(Didn’t I blow your mind it happens all the time) 
For me and you 
(All the time)(Ooh, baby) 
And I can see the tears fallin’ from your eyes 
(I can see the tears falling from your eyes) 
Tell me girl did I blow your mind? 

[Chorus and fade:]

#3 Popsicle

[Chorus]
You’re my pop-si-cle! 
From the very first time I met you, Girl, you captured me 
You’re my pop-si-cle! 
All I know is that you make me feel so fancyfree. 

Gonna love you for a lifetime 
And I know you’re gonna love me too 
You make me feel, feel so real 
And it feels so good, through and through 

Sweeter than candy 
Better than cake 
And everytime we kiss 
It feels oh so great 

Girl, can’t you see? 
You’re the one, you’re the one for me! 

[Chorus]

When I call you up on my favorite party line 
You sound so sweet, Girl. You’re blowing my mind 
Our love is much better than any other I know 
And it keeps on growing, more and more 

Girl, can’t you see? 
You’re the one, you’re the one for me! 

[Chorus]

POP POP POP POP POP POPSICLE! 

Hey, hey, little girl with your pretty dress on 
I’ve been wanting you to want me for my whole life long 
You knock me off my feet, girl, you’re a super treat 
When I see you in the street you make my heart skip a beat 

You’re the one who makes me feel alright 
When I look into your eyes, you know you’re really out of sight 
I’m for you and you’re for me 
We could stay together so easily 

POP POP POP POP POP POPSICLE! 

Girl, can’t you see? 
You’re the one, you’re the one for me! 

[Chorus ]

POP POP POP POP POP POPSICLE!

I want to spend my whole life loving only you 

There are so many things that we can do 
Just give me a chance to (move it all to) you

About the way I really feel

I wanna hold you in my arms 
And fill you with all my charms

#6 New Kids On The Block

We know you’ve heard this beat many, many times 
But we bet you’ve never heard it with such a vicious rhyme 
A rhyme with class and plenty of clout 
To show you sucher M.C.’s what it’s about 
We hear the same stories everywhere we go 
Hey, it’s Nynuk who stole the show 
So for all you party people who are in a state of shock 
We’re The New Kids On The Block! 

Chillin’ on the corner, the first day we arrived 
From the looks of the hoods, we didn’t think we’d survive 
Second day we were there, we were walking down the street 
With a rhyme in mind and a funky beat 

But when we turned into the alley, to our surprise 
We saw a bunch of hoods right before our eyes 
They looked us up and down once, twice and again 
There must have been a hundred to a hundred and ten 
So, I looked over my shoulder right at my friend 
He said ‘Nice knowing you’ but this is the end 

So we battened down the hatches and prepared to fight 
Then all of a sudden I seen the light 
The time was right, the time to rock 
‘Cause everybody knows, we’re The New Kids On The Block. 

We’re also devistating when we’re on stage 
The fans start screaming and yelling with rage 
With mic’s in hand and rhymes with clout 
So watch it sucker MCs or we’re gonna turn you out 

We never talk trash, our rhymes are clean 
Our rhymes are never vague and we say nothing obscene 
So any sucker MCs who wanna battle us 
Can you go at least 20 lines without a cuss? 
Cause once we start to jam, you’ll be in a state of shock 
Clear the way party people, we’re The New Kids On The Block 

Move it sucker MCs or you’re gonna feel the wrath 
So don’t get caught up in the aftermath 
Cause we’re the funky MCs of the hip hop craze 
Our rhymes are done by law and are sure to amaze 

With a DJ cutting records, steady cross bass 
We’ll leave all you party people stuck in a daze 
I say we’re fresh, new and you know it’s true 
Now let me introduce you to the rest of the crew 

J, he’s fresh. He’s the master of mix 
There ain’t no rhyme that he can’t fix 
Spinster’s next, he’s the king of the spin 
And if you wanna battle, you ain’t gonna win 

Then there’s Popeye, but we call him Joey 
The kid’s so fresh, you’ll never be bored 
Next is jon, whose word is true 
But the party people know him as the runner GQ 

I’m Dexter P. the wizard of word 
I’m the greatest MC that you’ve ever heard 
Now that you know we’re a gang and you know we don’t play 
We’re The New Kids On The Block, and we’re here – to – stay! 

aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh, ROCK!!!

#7 Are You Down?

[Danny:] Yo, Jordan! What’s up? 
[Jordan:] Hey Danny! What’s happening? 
Oh, here comes little Joey Joe down the street 
[Joe:] Ho! What’s happenin’ fellas? 
[Jordan:] Yo, there’s Jon, but has anyone seen Donnie? 
[Danny:] I don’t know, but I thought I saw him walking towards the corner store. 
[Joe:] Nah, he’s at the park playing ball 
[Jon:] Oh, here he comes now 
[ad libbed greetings]
[Donnie:] Hey Guys! 
[Danny:] Where have you been? 
[Donnie:] Man, I’ve got a story to tell! 
[All:] HIT IT! 

[Donnie:]
Saw a homegirl at the corner store 
Eyes started bugging, mouth fell to the floor 
She had a miniskirt and a sexy pose 
I tried to rap to her, but I just froze 
Tell me now fellas, what can I do? 
To make a girl like me, like a girl likes you? 

[Danny:] Well Homeboy get ready! 
[Joe:] ‘Cause you want correcting 
[Jordan:] ‘Cause a girl needs love 
[All:] And plenty of affection 

[Jon:] If a girl were mine, I’d give her the world 
I’d buy her diamonds and pearls just to make her my girl 

[Jordan:] That might work with your girl, but not with mine. 
She’s not the type of girl to fall for any line 

[Joe:] I’d take her out to dinner, treat her like a winner 
I may be young, but I’m no beginner 

[Danny:] All your ways are good, but not as good as mine 
You have to be sincere for a girl that fine! 

[Chorus ]
Baby, won’t you please be mine? 
Are you down? 
Baby, won’t you please be mine? 
Are you down? HO! 

[Danny:] Alright then, D., since you gave it a try 
[All:] Tell us about the girl who caught your eye 

[Donnie: ]
It was after school and I was feeling cool 
‘Til I saw that girl and I started to drool 
So I thought to myself, take it easily 
I couldn’t let peer pressure get the best of me 
I thought to myself, what should I do? 
That’s when she came up on me and said ‘I love you’ 

[Donnie:] Who me? 
[All:] Yeah, you! 
[Donnie:] Couldn’t be! 
[All:] But it’s true! 

[Donnie:] So I rushed back home to tell you guys, 
But not before I got a quick kiss goodbye! 

[All:] Did you meet her friends? 
[Donnie:] Yeah, they looked def. 
[All:] Yo, that was fresh! 
[Donnie:] Word! Let’s go left. 
[Jordan:] So here goes the keys 
[Joe:] On which it depends 
[Jordan:] She’s got 
[Joe:] One! 
[Jordan:] Two! 
[Danny:] Three! 
[Jon:] Four! 
[All:] Fresh girlfriends! 

[Chorus ]

Are you down? 
Are you down? 
[repeat 5x]

[Chorus ]

Are you down? 
Are you down? 
[repeat]

[All:] Joey Joe! 
[Joe:] Nimble and quick. 
You have to be def to be down with my clique 

[All:] Jon! 
[Jon:]You know I’ve got the style 
When I go into a party all the girls go wild 

[All:] Danny D! 
[Danny:] The prince! Make no mistake. 
I’m the MC devistating. So cool and I break.(dance) 

[All:] Don-nie! Donnie: That’s me, don’t give me no slack! 
I get loose with the juice, ’cause I got it like that 

[Ad lib stuff]

[Jordan:] Here we go! 

[All, followed by mechanical voice:]
