"D.M.S.R." as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Everybody, get on the floor
What the hell'd you come here for?
Girl, it ain't no use, you might as well get loose
Work your body like a whore
Say everybody, get on the beat
We're gonna show you mothers how to scream
People everywhere, loosen up your hair
Take a deeper breath and sing along with me, yes
Are you ready?
Everybody everybody ooh (ooh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance
Oh, everybody say ooh (ooh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance

Everybody (everybody) loosen up
Shake it like you just don't care (shake it like you just don't care)
Nevermind your friends, girl it ain't no sin
To strip right down to your underwear
I say everybody (everybody) screw the masses
We only want to have some fun (have some fun)
I say do whatever we want, wear lingerie to a restaurant
Police ain't got no gun, you don't have to run
Everybody, ooh (ooh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance
Everybody say ooh (ooh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance, oh

Everybody clap your hands now

All the white people clap your hands on the four, now
One-two-three, one-two-three, one-two-three
One-two-three, listen to me, I don't want to be a poet
'Cause I don't want to blow it
I don't care to win awards
All I want to do is dance
Play music, sex, romance
And try my best to never get bored, oh
If you feel all right lemme hear you scream (aah)

Somebody say dance (dance), music (music)
Sex (sex), romance (romance)
Somebody say dance (dance), music (music)
Sex (sex), romance (romance)
Everybody say dance (dance), music (music)
Sex (sex), romance (romance)
Everybody say dance (dance), music (music)
Oh, say sex (sex), romance (romance)
Everybody dance (dance), music (music)
Everybody say sex (sex), romance (romance) (D.M.S.R.)
Everybody dance (dance), music (music)
Sex (sex), romance (romance), (D.M.S.R.) alright

Jamie Starr's a thief
It's time to fix your clock
Vanity six is so sweet
Now you can all take a bite of my purple rock, can we stop?

Are you ready? (hey)
Everybody sing this song now, oh (oh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance
Everybody sing it, ooh (oh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance
Negroes say ooh (oh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance
Puerto Ricans say it, ooh (oh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance
Everybody sing this song, oh-oh-oh-oh (oh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance
All the white people in the house say ooh (oh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance
Japanese say one time ooh (oh), alright (alright)
Dance, music, sex, romance
Everybody sing together, say ooh (oh), alright (alright)
Dance music sex romance (call the police)
Crawl, crawl on the floor say ooh, yeah (please help me, somebody help me!)

    General CommentFor those of you not familiar with this song, it was an obscure cut on the "1999" album, & later featured in the movie, "Risky Business". DMSR says it all- Dance, Music, Sex, Romance! In my opinion, this is an awesome party song, & it should have been a hit but probably wasn't because it came out in '82, & back then you could only say the word "sex" in a song only so many times, plus the parts where he says "Strip down to your underwear", "Screw the masses", "Wear a lingerie to a restaurant", & "Work your body like a whore" were probably too edgy for the radio back then. Also, the song is 8 minutes long, but with the right amount of editing that wouldn't have been a huge obstacle. My only criticism is the end where a girl in the background shouts, "Somebody help me"- I don't understand that part. Could someone please explain that to me.....?
