"The Showstopper" as written by and Herb Azor....
[Once again my friends and countrymen



Lend us your ears and eyes



The Showstopper is stupid fresh



When will you be satisfied?]







Yo bust it Sandy D.



Yo what's up?



Have you ever been to jams when people just stand



And they pay to come in and they don't even dance?



They're so uncouth they think they're cute



Am I lying? No it's the truth



Right now I'm gonna show you how it's supposed to be



'cause we, the Salt and Pepa MCs



Will chance the circumstance rocks your pants



My fans, this is called the jam







Sandy...What?...Sandy...What?



Sandy, we'll be breaking hearts, ya know



That's true, it's all about money though



But Douglas and Richie won't like it (So?)



Come on then, let's stop the show







Yo, this beat is stupid fresh



Huh, yeah, you know it, cold dissed Doug Fresh



Top choice, of course, the rest is soft



Set it off, do it Set it off, do it



Set it off, do it Set it off, do it







Listen now, I ain't down to rap



Are you serious? Just like a heart attack



Come on now, Cher! I don't want to



Get on now, Cher! Do I have to? Yeah!







Well I really don't have too much to say



Yo, then here's my story anyway



It's just a little somethin' too hot to be missed, girl



I was going downtown (???), serious



Cher took the train home from work



Pissed off because of a stain on my shirt



The train made a stop (Where?) Two hundred and five



And a little soft guy walked inside







He wore plastic Bally's and a booty Gucci suit



Cracked a little smile and showed a fake gold tooth



Was he cute? Negative, he was a dupe



Instead of Polo he wore ????



La-di-da-di What?



La-di-da-di Uh-huh, word to mother







The boy was rude, I didn't approve



He tried to make a move I said, "Stop it, dude!"



I started to cuss and began to swear



He said, "Listen girl, I like the way you comb your hair



And I like the stylish clothes you wear



Is there something that I can do



To show how much I really care?



Like when I'm all alone with you



My heart just skips a beat or two



And you put that fire inside of me



That shows it's more than just a dream



And I like it, and I like it"



I said, "Please, don't get excited!"







Don't you know I'm too young for you, mister?



Sally from the Valley - she's my sister



And that lady you dissed - that was my mother



You hurt two of my family, you won't get another



He tried to deny it, said it was a lie



He wanted to explain, explain to me why



I said, "Don't bother, there's really no need



Sally died when she hit the concrete"



He said, "Come on, you're puttin' me on"



As I got up to walk he sang this song:







"Oh, baby please don't go



What must I do to show



The way I feel for you, girl



Is going to be real?



But in reality, I know we'll never be



'cause you're still walking away from me"







A dis, a dis
