[Hook: TLC x3]
Ahhh... ah-all
(This is) All that
(This is) all that
(Now everybody sing)

[Verse 1: A-1]
Now this is just an intro-duction, before we blow your mind
We step up in your function, and pull in over time
I'm not a workaholic, but I'm always on my grind
Every day, cause that's the only way I'm gonna shine

Anyway, I had to put this beat over this rhyme
Just to remind my people of a much simpler time

When we played video games and ball sports
With overall shorts, short fades on ball courts

For me it was the 90's, for you it may be different
Link your mindframe but the timeframe ain't specific
We was always just kidding back when we was just kids
We never had to question our lives, we just lived
Just cause,
why were we happy
We just was

Maybe the reason is cause all we needed was just love
Some of us got that, what do you call that?
Well, back then, we would call it ALL THAT

[Hook x2]

[Verse 2: A-1]
Now, as a kid, grown ups told me, "Don't hurry through your years
Cause when you're grown, you got insecurities and fears
And when you're grown, you got all of the worries and the cares
In the world, and the world seems dirty and unfair"

I was unprepared, it's really kind of funny
I thought I would be rich by the time I was 20

Now I'm trying to find a meal to put inside of my tummy
And my childhood's the only thing they can never take from me
Drawing cartoon, superheroes with pencils

Watching all the dope Nickelodeon kid shows
Legends of the Hidden Temple was the jam
I liked Doug, but damn, Kenan & Kel was the man
Now I know why they told me what they told me way back when
We was kids, cause we won't ever be innocent again

But, now I'm a man, though I still can recall back
I'm missin' the days when it was phat
And it was all that

[Hook x2]

[Verse 3: A-1]
Now what would you do if you was a wild and crazy kid
As a rugrat, all of the gutsy things you did
See, I'm trying to live with modern life like Rocko
I miss my homies, Doug, Pete & Pete, Hey Arnold
Clarissa explained to me that nothing's for free
My cousin Skeeter told me look out for My Brother and Me
I ain't afraid of the dark so I won't fall flat
If I could just maintain, everything would be cool with all that
So everything we do is (ALL THAT)
When everything is cool, it's (ALL THAT)
And always staying true is (ALL THAT)
Left Eye, what's up boo, you're (ALL THAT)
We're entertaining you, we're (ALL THAT)
You people in ?, you're (ALL THAT)
My posse and my crew, we're (ALL THAT)
So sit still, cause we're coming right back

[Hook x2]
