Lyrics:[Verse One]
I'd like to tell a story and it goes like this
Before I was makin money hand
over fist
The mid-80's is what I'm talkin about
You will agree without a reasonable
doubt
As I tell this tale, sittin on a pail
This is one you'll like when it's done
Only
certain people know about Union Square
The Rooftop, Latin Quarter, cause I was there
Red
Alert downtown, Brucie Bee uptown
Grandmaster Vic had a different sound
You had block
parties, with free gifts
Mr. Magic and Marley gave radio a lift
You don't understand, but we
do
That's why I'm tryin to explain it to you
So sit back and listen, to what I say
As I
tell the story of this beautiful day

[Chorus: sampled]
"We'll go dancing in the dark" -
HEY!
"Walking through the park, and reminiscing"
BREAK IT ON DOWN!

[Verse
Two]
Before Versace and DKNY
There was a lot of clothes that was fly
Like Polo,
Benetton, Coca-Cola and Osh Kosh
Guess jeans and others that's acid washed
D.C. wore K-Swiss
and Sergio {?}Vertini
Girls wore tennis skirts, that was mini
Spot{?}, Ewings, {?}
New
Balance, Fila, Nike and Elites
African clothes and medallions was worn
And when Rakim came
out, knowledge was born
In the midst of it all, I almost forgot
There was a brother uptown
makin his own spot
Makin Gucci, leather and suede tailor made
That had more flavor than
mom's Kool-Aid
I'm gonna tell you, the name of this man
He goes by the name of the Dapper
Dan

[Chorus]

[Verse Three]
See at this time, you might think I'm
strange
Cause I wore a four-finger ring, and big gold chains
Like I was Mr. T from the
A-Team
It was just a sign of me makin cream
But the cars and jeeps
