Skank Up (Oh Lawd)

This song is by Sting and Shaggy.

Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
Do the skank-up beat, yeah

Mi have a bad ras groove bumping in my jeep
We wake di whole place up, mek nobody can't sleep
Gal, you fi shake dat ass, get up and move your feet
We make you stop, do the skank-up beat, yeah

So, burn the dance floor out because the drinks on me
Let's get these cups poured up, mi like your energy
And now I'm all fucked-up, singing shit off-key
We make you stop, do the skank-up beat, yeah

Gal a-move, gal a-shake, gal a-whine, gal a-bubble pon time, yeah, di man, dem say, "Hey"
When the music a play and di vibes set away, lighters make noise for the dee-jay
Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, bawl out, forward for di replay, hey, hey, hey

Come catch the island vibe, make you feel so free
The curry goat, well nice with some rice and peas
It's like early Christmas, come mek we light dem trees
We make you stop, do the skank-up beat, yeah

Gal a-move, gal a-shake, gal a-whine, gal a-bubble pon time, yeah, di man, dem say, "Hey"
When the music a play and di vibes set away, lighters make noise for the dee-jay
Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, bawl out, forward for di replay, hey, hey, hey

When dancehall music a-play, everybody fi dance and ah move it, move it
Woman inna short-shorts, intoxicated mad, dem ah lose it, lose it
Ding Dong and ravers, clavers, run dance floor, yeah, we already prove it
Man shoulda fi ah fling, fling, fling, fling, fling, fling, hey

Yaard Man dehya, London dehya, from you, ah see mi be ah hot gal dehya
Cha-cha boy style say we spend nuff chedda, Highgrade Man ah burn, so we light like feather
From music, nice vibes just right, mi nuh care, mi wi dance inna any weather
Everybody, everybody, do the skank-up beat, yeah

Shake what you got, come, shake it in my lap
Gal, shake non-stop, you know fi mek it clap
Gal, wine, come yah gal, come bubble with me
Gal, wine, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, we mashin' up the crowd

Come catch the island vibe, make you feel so free
We drinking ting and white rum like it's all we need
It's like early Christmas, come mek we light dem trees
We make you stop, do the skank-up beat, yeah

Love how di gal dem a dance off-beat
Move you feet and move to di street
Yeah, ah what we say?
Ahhhhooooo

Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
Do the skank-up beat, yeah
