Pop music 101
Some simple instructions, for a good first impression
Now lets start with verse one
A minor chord tensions grow, fade in the bass like so
Now with momentum go
Stop
And bring the beat back

It's call four on the floor
A beat you can't ignore
I bring sexy back once more (yeah), they love that (yeah) for sho
The chords are 1, 4, 6, 4
Now I'm talking familiar
Harmony in 3rd's not 4th's
We'll take you into the pre-chorus

Real quick now don't you bore us
Hurry up and get to the chorus
Dumbed down, they won't ignore us

Get to the floor
And here's some words you should know
Like "DJ never let me go"
Or "shots and then we'll lose control"
Or "baby, baby, baby, baby, baby"

How 'bout one more last word like:
"Hey girl we've only got tonight"
Some things just go together like
Higher, desire, and fire
Higher, desire, and fire

Guitar and strings like these
To sound like Black Eyed Peas
This one's a filter swing
This one's Imogen Heap
Hipster music on cassette
But you probably don't know that yet
8-0-8's (Hey! Ho!)
Hell yeah

Heartfelt pop anthems
From Mumford and his sons
Gang vocals here we come
Thinkin' "I will always wait"
(Wobble bass)

Real quick now don't you bore us
Hurry up and get to the chorus
Dumbed down, they won't ignore us
Can't slow down
Take 'em to the chorus

Whoa, and here's some words you should know
Like "DJ never let me go"
Or "shots and then we'll lose control"
Or "baby, baby, baby, baby, baby"

How 'bout one more last word like:
"Hey girl we've only got tonight"
Some things just go together like:
Higher, desire, and fire
Higher, desire, and fire

(I can pitch shift my voice if I want
I can pitch shift my voice if I want
I can pitch shift my voice if I want
I can make my voice low)

The bridge is the part when you bring in a rapper friend ('sup)
You simplify, and slow the beat
Abbreviate "feature" to "feat"

Quick now, fill in the gap (Okay!)
Right up and down, eliminate that which
You really would rap and give 'em a classic like

G-G-G-Get to the floor (CASH MONEY)
And here's some words you should know
Like "DJ never let me go"
Or "shots and then we'll lose control"
Or "baby, baby, baby, baby, baby"

How 'bout one more last word like:
"Hey girl we've only got tonight"
Some things just go together like:
Higher, desire, and fire
Higher, desire, and fire

(Dance)

Boots n cats n'
Boots n cats n'

Boots n' cats n'
Boots n' cats n'
