​Keep It Street

This song is by R. Kelly and appears on the album Born Into The 90's (1992).

Yo R. Kelly
What you going to do with this mix, man
Yo man
I'm just going to keep it street

Yo R. Kelly
It's time to give the homies
Something to dance to
You know what I'm saying
Push up on one of those cute hotties
Yo, this is what we are going to do
I'm going to take this track
Whip us up one of those nice gorilla beats
Yeah, something like that
I'm going to tell you the real true story
About back in the day
When I was trying to get where I am
Right now
Whip us up a nice intro

It's 1990 and the R is on the scene
Yeah filling up a funky beat
Strictly for the streets
You know what I mean
It took some time
But here I am with a swing
Yo R. Kelly
Tell them what they told you
All we really need
Is a funky groove
With a street swing
With a little street swing
Something you can get with
Bam, here it is
Keepin' it street

Let's keep it street
Let's keep it street
Let's keep it street
Let's keep it street
Yo bring that beat back

Yo back in the days
The girlies turned me down like collars
Yeah but now they're popping like
"Orville Redenbacher"

And now they wanna holler
That's when I decided to whip up a funky track
I took it door to door
And this is what they said
All we really need from you
Is a funky groove
With a street swing
With a little street swing
Something you can get with
Bam here it is
Keeping it street

All we really need
Is a funky, funky groove
With a street swing
With a little street swing
Something you can get into
Bam here it is
Keeping is street
