Songs for JD: Day 4

Jonathan's senior year of college, this song was over-played on radios in Jackson. Jonathan would laugh at how any time you got in a vehicle, this song would be on some station of the radio. He would roll down the windows, turn up the radio, and dance and sing. Here's a little Mary J. Blige (who is ironically about to go on tour with Jay Z...another typical JD song reference).

"There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven: [. . .] a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance." Ecc. 3: 1, 4

"Family Affair"
[Chorus:] Let's get it crunk, we gonna' have fun
Up on in this dancery
We got ya open, now ya floatin'
So you gots to dance for me
Don't need no hateration, holleratin'
In this dancery
Let's get it percolatin', while you're waiting
So just dance for me
Come on everybody get on up
Cause you know we gots to get it crunk
Mary J. is in the spot tonight
As I'mma make it feel alright (Make it feel alright)
Come on baby just party with me
Let loose and set your body free
Leave your situations at the door
So when you step inside jump on the floor
It's only gonna be about a matter of time
Before you get loose and start loose your mind
Cop you a drink, go head and rock your ice
Cause we celebrating
No More Drama in our life
With a great track pumpin', everybody's jumpin'
Going ahead and twist your back and get your body bumpin'
I told you leave your situations at the door
So grab somebody and get your ass on the dance floor
We don't need, don't need, no haters
Just try to love one another
We just want y'all have a good time
No more drama in your life
Work real hard to make a dime
If you got beef, your problem, not mine
Leave all that BS outside
We're gonna celebrate all night
Let's have fun, tonight, no fights
Turn the Dre track way up high
Making you dance all night and I
Got some real heat for ya this time
Doesn't matter if you're white or black
Let's get crunk cause Mary's back
