80s Music Video Of The Day: Cameo – Word Up!

80s Music Video Of The Day: Cameo - Word Up!

Cameo released Word Up! in 1986 and it peaked at #6 on The Billboard Hot 100 chart

Yo pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you
So tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister and your mama too
‘Cause we’re about to go down
And you know just what to do
Wave your hands in the air like you don’t care
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me what’s the word
Word up everybody say
When you hear the call you’ve got to get it underway
Word up it’s the code word
No matter where you say it you know that you’ll be heard
Now all you sucker DJ’s who think you’re fly
There’s got to be a reason and we know the reason why
You try to put on those Airs and you act real cool
Got to realize that you’re acting like fools
If there’s music we can use it
You’re free to dance
We don’t have the time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me mamma
Come on baby tell me what’s the word
Word up everybody say
When you hear the call you’ve got to get it underway
Dial L for love
C’mon all you people sing
W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up, W.O.R.D. up
W.O.R.D. up,
W.O.R.D. up
