"Lively Up Yourself" as written by Rolando E. Mclean, Anthony Dehaney and A. Brown....
Lively up yourself and don't be no drag
Lively up yourself, 'cause this is the other bag
Hey, lively up yourself and don't be no drag
You lively up yourself, dig it, the other bag

Hey, you rock so, you rock so, like you never did before
You dip so, you dip so, and you can dip through my door
You come so, you come so, oh yeah, like I do adore you
You skank so, you skank so, and-a I can assure you

You can lively up yourself and don't be no drag
Hey, you lively up yourself, can you dig it?

Hey (you rock so, you rock so), like you never did before
You dip so, you dip so, can you dig it?

You lively up yourself and don't be no drag
You lively up yourself, 'cause this is the other bag
Hey, lively up yourself

Lively up yourself, other bag
Can you dig it? Can you dig it?

    Song MeaningThe meaning of this song is summed up by the first line: "Lively up yourself and don't be no drag" - it means that when you are out and around other people, you have to look at yourself the way others do. If you're bummed or a negative person, then others are going to pick up on that vibe and then not want to be around you. So, liven up your spirit, your personality...make it more positive, upbeat and people will want to be around you. If you are negative, in a bad mood, bummed, whatever...you're going to be viewed as 'a drag,' and no one is going to want to be in your presence.
