Radio IV, side B, track 4: “Just Got Paid” by Johnny Kemp

Oh, Johnny Kemp, I wanted to party with you.  I wanted you to give me a make-over so that I could cruise around with you and hunt for parties and dance with fine women and watch them shake their booties.  You’d have to teach me to dance first, of course, and probably I’d have to get rid of my mullet and gigantic glasses and wear something besides the endless supply of Hawaiian shirts that I normally wore and get some other footwear besides the red and orange Roos hightops that I usually wore.  I wanted to sit at a booth with you and your friends in the back of a sexy club and scope out the fine honeys and laugh over our shenanigans with the ladies and talk about music and bob our heads to the music with our eyes closed and a satisfied smile on our faces as the grooves washed over us.  I wanted to tip the doorman by peeling off a $10 bill from the huge wad of cash I carried around because I just got paid and it was time to show everybody what the score was.  And if I also had to pay you to be seen with me, Johnny Kemp, that was fine, too.  It would be money well spent.

“Just Got Paid”

Just got paid, it’s Friday night
Party huntin’, feelin’ right.
Body shaking, all around
No one thinks when you’re gettin’ down.

Check the mirror, I’m lookin’ fly
Round up the posse, jump in my ride.
Radio rockin’, a monster jam.
Feel the rhythm, pump up the sound.

I’m feelin’ so good, don’t you know I’m just groovin’ to the beat.
I’m groovin’, groovin’, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Just got paid, (just got paid) it’s Friday night (Friday)
Party huntin’, (party huntin’) place is right
Booty shakin’, all around (all round, baby)
Pump the jam, when I’m gettin’ down

On the floor, rockin’ to the beat
Always you sure look sweet.
Fine young lady standin’ by
Come on baby sweet eye delight

I love the way that you move
You look so sweet when you’re movin’ to the beat
I’m tired of all these borin’ parties
Why don’t we get on down.
Come on let’s get on down now!

Just got paid, (just got paid) it’s Friday night (money in my pocket)
Party huntin’, place is right (place is right)
Booty shakin’, all around (love the way you move it)
Pump the jam, when I’m gettin’ down

Get down, uh!
Say ho! (You say it!)
Say ho, ho! (ho ho)
Say ho! (ha ha! Ow!)

On the floor, (on the floor) rockin’ to the beat (Rockin’ baby)
Movin’ me, (always) you sure look sweet
Fine young lady standin’ by (c’mere!)
Come on baby, sweet eye delight

Just got paid, it’s Friday night
Party huntin’, place is right (money in my pocket)
Booty shakin’, all around (show you a good time)
Pump the jam, when I’m gettin’ down
