Pants on the Ground Lyrics - Complete Lyrics

Here are the lyrics to General Larry Platt's Pants on the Ground song:

Pants on the Ground
Pants on the Ground
Lookin' like a fool with your
Pants on the Ground.

With your gold in your mouth
Hat turned sideways
Pants hit the ground

Call yourself a cool cat
looking like a fool
Walking downtown with your
Pants on the Ground

Get it up!
Hey. Get your pants off the ground.
Lookin' like a fool
Walkin', talkin' with your
Pants on the Ground.

Get it up!
Hey. Get your pants off the ground.
Lookin' like a fool with your
Pants on the Ground

Go with it now
Hat turned sideways
Pants hit the Ground
Call yourself a cool cat
Lookin' like a fool

Walkin', talkin' with your
Pants on the Ground.

Boom. Yea
Pants on the Ground
Lookin' like a fool
With your Pants on the Ground

With your gold in your mouth
Hat turned sideways
Pants hit the ground

Call yourself a cool cat
looking like a fool
Walking downtown with your
Pants on the Ground

It is great...more power to him! The General...is in the house! Great Hub...on him...BTW. I think it's great that this artist...had a platform to present his music...his style...his flair...and it caught on like hotcakes...for a hungry crowd. Way to go, Gen. Larry Platt..."Pants on the ground, Pants on the ground...looking like a fool....with your Pants on the Ground!" The guy is a lyric genius...I can't wait to listen to more of his stuff!
