Three nights ago I was at a disco

Man, I wanted to bump, I was rarin' to go

And this big fat woman, bumped me on the floor

She was rarin' to go, that chick was rarin' to go

Man she did a dip, almost broke my hip

She was gettin' down, that chick was gettin' down

She wanted to bump some more, but I told her, no

You done knocked me down once
