A Kid 'n' Play
original, moJoe? I don't think so. I can trace that song
back to at least 1984 - when Rockmaster Scott and the Dynamic Three
put out "The Roof is on Fire". Incidentally
, that tune has evolved into almost its own genre
... for example, both the aforementioned (overrated) Bloodhound Gang
track and The Chemical Brothers
' excellent "Hey Boy Hey Girl" are direct descendants.
And yes, it has the "hands in the air/don't care" couplet. It also manages to rhyme it with "and you got on clean underwear." There was a time when rap wasn't about gats, bitches, and the chronic.
"Superstar DJs, here we GO!!!"
I remember a time when House Party (not cool even by 1990 standards) was on HBO 15 times a week...
