A song of mating ritual. When done in excellence, we say it's HOT. The song in question is Pon de Replay (2005), by Caribbean islander Rihanna (born 1988).

Come Mr. DJ song pon de replay
Come Mr. DJ won't you turn the music up
All the gyal pon the dancefloor wantin some more what
Come Mr. DJ won't you turn the music up

it goes 1 by 1 even 2 by 2
everybody on the floor let me show you how we do
lets go dip it low then you bring it up slow
wind it up 1 time wind it back once more

Run, Run, Run, Run
Everybody move run
Lemme see you move and
Rock it til the grooves done
Shake it til the moon becomes the sun (Sun)
Everybody in the club give me a run (Run)
If you ready to move say it (Yeah Yeah)
One time for your mind say it (Yeah Yeah)
Well i'm ready for ya
Come let me show ya
You want to groove im'a show you how to move
Come come

Hey Mr.
Please Mr. DJ
Tell me if you hear me
Turn the music up

It goes 1 by 1 even 2 by 2
Everybody in the club gon be rockin when i'm through
Let the bass from the speakers run through ya sneakers
Move both ya feet and run to the beat

Okay everybody get down if you feel me
Put your hands up to the ceiling

I like this song, but Rihanna's SOS is much better.

What does “Pon de Replay” mean? Quote form Wikipedia:

Rihanna explained the song title by saying, “It's just language that we speak in Barbados. It's broken English. Pon is on, de means the, so it's just basically telling the DJ to put my song on the replay.”
