You Want It, You Got It…Bust A Move

What do your pets do when you’re not at home? Well, maybe you will get some unnerving ideas when you see the new 3D animated comedy “The Secret Life of Pets”  (July 2016).

The movie’s trailer features a classic song from the 80s called “Bust A Move” which works perfectly to showcase the antics of the four-legged cast involved as the star canine Max has his life turned upside when his owner brings home a sloppy mongrel named Duke. An adorable white bunny named Snowball steals the show.

Who Sang Bust A Move?

In 2011, giant phone service provider Verizon launched a TV commercial ad campaign featuring the funky and clever Young MC’s “Bust A Move.”

“Bust A Move” went to #7 on the Billboard charts in 1989…”you want it…you got it…Bust a Move….”

Young MC Bust a MoveIntelligent and middle-class, rapper Marvin Young earned a degree in economics from USC, where he met Michael Ross and Matt Dike, co-founders of the fledgling Delicious Vinyl rap label. He made his debut as Young MC on the single “I Let ‘Em Know.” In 1989, Young collaborated with Tone-Loc on “Wild Thing,” the first Top Ten pop hit for a black rapper, and the follow-up smash “Funky Cold Medina.” Young stepped out on his own later in the year with the Top Ten smash “Bust a Move,” a good-natured examination of romantic successes and failures spiced by his sense of humor and quick-tongued rapping. The song won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance, and its strong pop appeal helped the attendant album, Stone Cold Rhymin’, go platinum….read more about Young MC at Allmusic.com.

Bust A Move Lyrics
(Composed by Young MC et al)

This here’s a tale for all the fellas
Try to do what those ladies tell us
Get shot down cause you’re over zealous
Play hard to get an females get jealous
Ok smartie, go to a party
Girls are stancin the crowd is showin body
A chick walks by you wish you could sex her
But you’re standin on the wall like you was Poindexter
Next days function, high class luncheon
Food is served and you’re stone cold munchin’
Music comes on, people start to dance
But then you ate so much you nearly split your pants
A girl starts walkin, guys start gawkin’
Sits down next to you and starts talkin’
Says she wanna dance cus she likes the groove
So come on fatso and just bust a move

You’re on a mission and you’re wishin’
someone could cure you’re lonely condition
You’re lookin for love in all the wrong places
Not fine girls just ugly faces
From frustration first inclination
Is to become a monk and leave the situation
But every dark tunnel has a lighter hope
So don’t hang yourself with a celibate rope
New movie’s showin… so you’re goin
Could care less about the five you’re blowin
Theatre gets dark just to start the show
When you spot a fine woman sittin in the front row
She’s dressed in yellow, she says “Hello,
Come sit next to me you fine fellow”
You run over there without a second to loose
And what comes next, hey bust a move

If you want it baby you’ve got it (repeat)
Just bust a move

In the city ladies look pretty
Guys tell jokes so they can seem witty
Tell a funny joke just to get some play
Then you try to make a move and she says “no way”
Girls a fakin’ … goodness sakin’
They want a man who brings home the bacon
Got no money and you got no car
Then you got no woman and there you are
Some girls are sophistic… materialistic
Looking for a man makes them opportunistic
They’re lyin on the beach perpetratin a tan
So that a brother with money can be their man
So on the beach you’re strollin’… real high-rollin’
Everything you have is your’s and not stolen
A girl runs up with somethin to prove
So don’t just stand there, bust a move

(break down)

Your best friend Harry has a brother Larry
In five days from now he’s gonna marry
He’s hopin you can make it there if you can
‘Cause in the ceremony you’ll be the best man
You say “neato”… check your libido
And roll to the church in your new tuxedo
The bride walks down just to start the wedding
And there’s one more girl you won’t be getting
So you start thinkin, then you start blinkin
A bride maid looks and thinks that you’re winkin
She thinks you’re kinda cute so she winks back
And now you’re feelin really fine cus the girl is stacked
Reception’s jumpin, bass is pumpin
Look at the girl and your heart starts thumpin
Says she wants to dance to a different groove
Now you know what to dog, bust a move
