V | Hip To Hip

LYRICS:

When lady luck has got me down
With her high-speed attitude
I'm-a feeling kinda high
I'm-a feeling kinda low
I feel so, I dunno... like fast food
Someone spiked my latte
And I'm just not in the mood
Need a little bit of this, need a little bit of that
Some chit chat and thatís why Iím the dude

I got a feeling something's wrong
I dial your number and then it's gone
I got a feeling something's whack
Before I count to three you're here with me
Before the blues attack

Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
Without you girl the future's bleak
Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
I want you by my side
Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
You're gone a day, it's like a week
Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
I'm feeling good inside

When lady luck is dressed in black
And I'm dancing in my shoes
Tryna pull me to the left
Tryna pull me to the right
I just might, sit tight, stay in my groove
I'm tired of people on my back
Making offers I can't refuse
I know that they believe I'm on my knees
But I know I won't never lose yeah

I got a feeling something's wrong
I dial your number and then it's gone
I got a feeling something's whack
Before I count to three you're here with me
Before the blues attack

Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
Without you girl the future's bleak
Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
I want you by my side
Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
You're gone a day, it's like a week
Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
I'm feeling good inside

Twist it nation
Miss the generation
We don't need no education
The rhythm that youíre giving me
Is changing my life
And baby if you said "jump"
I'd say "how high?"
No dealing, stealing
Only free-wheeling
You're giving a religion for me to believe in
So rock me, shock me any way you know
But I guess I kinda like the status quo

I got a feeling something's wrong
I dial your number and then it's gone
I got a feeling something's whack
Before I count to three you're here with me
Before the blues attack

Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
Without you girl the future's bleak
Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
I want you by my side
Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
You're gone a day, it's like a week
Hip-hip to hip, cheek-cheek to cheek
I'm feeling good inside

REVIEWS:
x But just what is it that makes V so different, so appealing? One thing that strikes me is the lack of an R&B influence. (...)
It's not that there's anything wrong with doing R&B stuff, it's just that when real actual R&B is so hot a British boyband needs to put in a titanic amount of effort to come up with any goods. (...) So doing arsewaggling dancey pop like "Hip To Hip" is a way out of this sweaty quandary, a way of doing boybands without their members continually looking over their dipped shoulders at Usher et al.
(...) V remind me of Wham! with their energy and confidence and occasional wit and lo and behold "Hip To Hip" DOES have a rap on it but it's that kind of loveable old-school not-really-rapping rapping you got on "Wham Rap!" (...) Tom Ewing

x Infectious Hip To Hip is packed full of lyrical pop money shots: the word 'wack', a pronouncement that 'I'M THE DUDE', a reference to somebody spilling a latte and - holy Rapture! - a white rap in the middle eight. Gary Ryan
