Snap – The Power

Penny Ford describes herself as a “musical vegan,” preferring the sounds of Pat Metheny and Steely Dan. Snap! took some getting used to for her, and it was a major star that helped her come to terms with it. Said Penny: “I found out really quick when Snap! hit, that I’d better find something about it that I like. Better figure out something about it you can get with, because this is the hand you were dealt, and you gotta take it seriously. And then I had an epiphany with the help of Mick Jagger. I was apologizing to him for having done that song. We were dancing somewhere in London, and the record ‘The Power’ came on. And he could see that I was so ashamed that that was me singing. I’m saying, ‘I didn’t even know, I would have maybe written something better or something if I’d known it was gonna be this big.’ And he was like, ‘What the f–k are you on about? This is a big hit. You’re standing here dancing to it with Mick Jagger. What the hell do you want, girl?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, you’re right, Mick. I think you’re right.’ So that was the moment that I did a turnaround on that stuff.” Songfacts®.

Snap – The Power Lyrics:
I’ve got the power hey yeah heh.
I’ve got the power.
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah.
I’ve got the power.
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah.
Gettin’ kinda heavy.

It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.

Like the crack of the whip I snap attack.
Front to back in this thing called rap.
Dig it like a shovel rhyme devil.
On a heavenly level.
Bang the bass turn up the treble.
Radical mind day and night all the time.
Seven to fourteen wise divine.
Maniac brainiac winning the game.
I’m the lyrical Jesse James.

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah
I’ve got the power.
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh yeah.
Gettin’ kinda heavy.
I’ve got the power.

It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda heavy.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda heavy.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda heavy.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda heavy.

I’ve got the power.
He’s gonna break my heart.
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts.
He’s gonna break my heart.
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts.
He’s got the power oh-oh-oh-oh.

I’ve got the power.
He’s gonna break my heart.
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts.
He’s gonna break my heart.
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts.
He’s got the power oh-oh-oh-oh.
I’ve got the power.

It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.

It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.
It’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ it’s gettin’ kinda hectic.

Quality I possess something I’m fresh.
When my voice goes through the rest.
Of the microphone that I am holdin’.
Copywritten lyrics so they can’t be stolen.
If they are snap.
Don’t need the police to try to save them.
Your voice will sink so please stay off my back.
Or I will attack and you don’t want that.

I’ve got the power.
He’s gonna break my heart.
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts.
He’s gonna break my heart.
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts.
He’s got the power oh-oh-oh-oh.

I’ve got the power.
He’s gonna break my heart.
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts.
He’s gonna break my heart.
He’s gonna break my heart of hearts.
He’s got the power oh-oh-oh-oh.

I’ve got the power..
