lyrics

Never as a kid did I think that as a man,
I would ever get to spit, get to sing with the band.
Livin' life like the plan was continually to jam,
Over rhythms and notes given by my friends and my fam.

So yeah, you could say that I am livin' the dream,
NEW GROOVEMENT that's the name of the team.
Gettin you movin' is the aim of the scheme,
But moving more than just your feet cuz it pains me to see a;

Scenic planet bein dismantled all so casually
And no ones doin shit cuz we ain't seeing these scenes graphically.
But kids in war, extinction and more we all know what's happening,
And gradually without us acting these acts cause catastrophe.

But back to me, Dan the emcee, I wield the mic so masterfully,
I got yo mind expanding while you dancing all entranced.
We be the V-I-C dream team and we blast the beat,
People get yo' ass on the floor and share this moment of passion with me!

Sometimes I dance so, heavy,
Dancin' Heavy and I'm ready to go.
I feel it in my body,
Risin' up so don't take it slow.
I really dance so heavy,
Lets go back into the lights.

So now you're movin'- and now you're groovin',
Cuz we just doin' what we doin'.
So now your Rollin', and now your golden,
Because flowin's all were knowing,

Well that last bit, it wasn't true,
Because we all got our different things that we do.
Me I love pool hoops and the odd fling or two,
And you know I seen my share back when I was slingin' brews.

But singing with the crews like top of the list,
Some would say it's why I exist.
That and yo' pick of an eighth or a fifth,
Mixed with fizz to drink or in a spliff to hit.

Add bass riffs ,snares, kicks
And horns so gully that Scully's convinced they don't exist.
Sheeeeit that's a pretty slick mix,
And that's before we got that singing that be sick.

Sometimes I dance so, heavy,
Dancin' Heavy and I'm ready to go.
I feel it in my body,
Risin' up so don't take it slow.
I really dance so heavy,
Lets go back into the lights.

So whether you're a measurer of rules and seniority,
Or a youthful treasurer of foolin' with authority.
Or just a member of the present majority,
Here to drink beer and might as well be ignoring me.

Dance! Put your feet on the floor,
Wear your heart on your sleeve and just bleed it some more.
My speech implores you to do what you wanna,
Get covered in sweat, like this was a sauna.

Go tell your Momma (K),
go tell your Papa (Sure),
The dream team will rock your chakras (Word).
Yes sir, or ma'am rather,
I dare you if you can, to name a band hotter.

Top of the list like Barack's alma mater,
And reason y'all exist after havin' sons or daughters.
So cocky you remember, yup, yes we gots ta',
Cause we takin' the scene like a test in drama.

Sometimes I dance so, heavy,
Dancin' Heavy and I'm ready to go.
I feel it in my body,
Risin' up so don't take it slow.
I really dance so heavy,

Sometimes I dance so, heavy,
Dancin' Heavy and I'm ready to go.
I feel it in my body
Risin' up so don't take it slow
I really dance so heavy

Lets go back

about

The New Groovement

The New Groovement is funk band that seemlessly blends R&B, soul, and hip hop to create a funk-i-fied feast for the ears. If Jamiroquai had the soul of Aretha Franklin or The Roots had the energy of Sharon Jones, then you'd have The New Groovement. Local TV and radio have dubbed the sound as "the epitome of live music," and "a super-band." ... more
