Selezione musicale 100 – Outkast Hey Ya

Hey Ya! è un brano con una carica fortissima e decisamente trascinante, pubblicato dagli OutKast nel 2003.
Gli OutKast sono un duo hip hop statunitense formato da André 3000 e Big Boi che dopo essersi conosciuti a scuola formano il gruppo nel 1992 e pubblicano due anni dopo il loro primo disco, a cui ne seguiranno altri negli anni successivi. I due componenti dal 2006 non pubblicano più lavori in coppia.

1, 2, 3: go!

My baby don’t mess around
Because she loves me so
And this I know for sho
But does she really want it
But can’t stand to see me
Walk out the door?
Don’t try to fight the feeling
Because the thought alone is killing me right now
Thank god for mom and dad
For sticking through together
Cause we don’t know how

Hey ya!

You think you’ve got it
Oh, you think you’ve go it
But “got it” just don’t get it
Till’ there’s nothing at all
We’ve been together
Oh, we’ve been together
But separate’s always better
When there’s feelings involved
If what they say is “Nothing is forever”
Then what makes – then what makes
Love the exception?
So why oh why
Are we so in denial
When we know we’re not happy here?
Y’all don’t want to hear me, you just want to dance

Don’t want to meet your daddy
Just want you in my Caddy
Don’t want to meet your mama
Just want to make you cumma
I’m just being honest!

Hey, alright now
Alright now fellas (Yeah!)
Now what’s cooler than being cool?
(Ice cold!) I can’t hear ya
I say what’s cooler than being cool?
(Ice cold!)
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright.. OK: now ladies
We’re gonna break this back down in just a few seconds
Now don’t have me break this thing down for nothing
Now I want to see y’all on your baddest behavior
Give me some sugar, I am your neighbor! Ah, here we go!
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it like a Polaroid picture

Now all the Beyonce’s and Lucy Lius
And babydolls, get on the floor
(Get on the floor)
You know what to do
Oh, you know what to do!
