Straight Up Man

I was walkin’ down the street 
on a bright and sunny day 
I see this lady lookin my way 
Got my head held high 
My eye on the prize 
Pull it loose and untie the ribbon in her eyes.       my my my 

She said - What is it you’re lookin for 
I really wanna know 
You’re lookin all fine, my my my 
Just where do ya think you’ll go? 
I’m aimin to make it, to move it and shake it 
Gonna get it and not miss a beat (da da da) 
Why don’t you come with me and help me believe 
that I can honestly tell you to trust me - cuz… 

I’m a straight up man - with no fall back plan 
I’m a straight up man - that’s what I am. 
If you wanna make it move it shake it.. If you wanna make it move it shake it.. Yeah.. 

This is the town where dreams our found 
Gotta go get the gold 
Slingin guitar hooks 
Reading all the good books 
Just Praying for a shot  or 2 
Ain't no time to stop,  gonna sleep when I drop unTil then I'm on my way to make it to the top 
People dance to my beat, make grooves with their feet 
Sing along come on follow me cuz. 

I'm a straight up man. with no fall back plan 
I’m a straight up man - that’s what I am. 
If you wanna make it move it shake it.. If you wanna make it move it shake it.. Yeah.. 

What moves you what shakes you to the bone 
What happens when you leave it all on the floor.. 
When tempted by the fortunes of the others 
You can choose to stay but I'll make my way to      go get mine 

I’m a straight up man - with no fall back plan 
I’m a straight up man - that’s what I am. 
If you wanna make it move it shake it.. If you wanna make it move it shake it.. Yeah.. 

I Sing and play for you 
I Sing and play 

Pour my soul and sweat to quench the thirst to make you feel what I feel or at least what's real to you. 
Cuz there's no time to stop,  gonna sleep when I drop unTil then I'm on my way to make it to the top 
People dance to my beat, make grooves with your feet 
Sing along come on follow me cuz. 

I'm a straight up man. with no fall back plan 
I’m a straight up man - that’s what I am. 
I'm a straight up man with no fall back plan 
This is all I knows 

I'm a straight up man 
And I may not have much to show for it 
But I got the groove, I got the beat, 
I got the muse that came to me saying 
If ya wanna make it, if ya wanna make it 
If you wanna make it, move it, shake it 
If you wanna make it, move it, shake it 
If you wanna make it, move it, shake it get it 

Make it - Move it - Shake it get it 

Make it - Move it - Shake it get it 

You gotta make it - move it - shake it - get it 

Make it - Move it - Shake it get it 

Make it - Move it - Shake it get it
