Lyrics
Yo man, you ready to drop this, man? (Yeah-eee)
Well kick it for me one time

(Pass)
(Drop it)

We got our own thang (get up and do my thing)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (pass)
We got our own thang
We've got our own thang (drop it)

We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (get up and do my thing)

(Hey!) everybody, shake your body
We don't ill, we chill at a party
Keep a groove that's sensual, three-dimensional
Unquestionable, the lover is professional
Got a category, my own and I'm the president
Don't be alarmed but I'm sewing up the resident
With my particular style-style, particular
Extracurricular, smoother and trickier
Throwing up lyrics like you throw up a flapjack
You're a Chicken McNugget and I'm a Big Mac
Brainstorm soloist, have a Coca-cola with it
Doing very well 'cause I took the right road to this
Path
Maker, undertaker, record breaker
Get up on the floor and do the Heavy D shake
Started with a pow and I'ma end it with a bang (yo)
We got our own thang

We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (get up and do my thing)

(Hey!) picture the set, girlies wet with sweat
In the corner people sitting down
They've had as much as they could possibly get
Meanwhile I'm lampin', feelin' like a champ and
Push up on a cutie, phone digits I'm stampin'
The place was packed though, stuffed like an Oreo
Everybody broke for a Heavy D video
Pumpin' in stereo
People said, "Here we go"
A cutie down in front said
"Heavy, you're my hero"
Understand this, before you make a comment
There's always a meaning in a Heavy D statement
In this life, I strive for improvement
Be your own guide, follow your own movement
Love is a legend
Me, I'm legendary at it
Flipping on the mic makes me a rapping acrobat
Don't try to swing, 'cause you couldn't even hang (yo)
We got our own thang

We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)

He-He-Heavy D
He-He-Heavy D
He-He-Heavy D (get up and do my thing)
He-He-Heavy D
He-He-Heavy D
He-He-Heavy D
Heavy D

Original, individual, smooth criminal
Dance a lot, dance a little
Shuffle to the middle
Don't clock anybody, let 'em all clock you
Don't be down with anybody, let 'em all be down with you
Stay self-managed, self-kept, self-taught
Be your own man, don't be borrowed, don't be bought
Started with a pow and I'ma end it with a bang (yo)
We got our own thang

We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
(We got our own)

We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)

We got our own thang, baby
You gotta move your body
Come on, baby

We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
We got our own thang (a diddley-diddley-diddley-diddely-diddely-dee)
