Intro: Gb E D 

Gb                 E                     
Yo pretty ladies around the world
      D                   E                     Gb  E   Gb                                   
Got a weird thing to show you so tell all the boys and girls
                                        D
Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too
       D            E           Gb    E     Gb 
We're about to go down and you know just what to do
           Gb                    E
Wave your hands in the air like you don't care
D             E            Gb         E     Gb
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare
           Gb                    E                    D
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
      E               Gb    E     Gb
Come on baby tell me what's the word


Chorus:
Gb                     E
A Word up - up up - everybody say 
          D         E              Gb    E     Gb
When you hear the call you've got to get it under way
       Gb           E             D                E
Word up it's the code word, No matter where you say it 
     Gb    E     Gb
you know that you'll be heard


Gb                           E                
Now all you sucker DJs who think you're fly
        D           E             Gb    E     Gb
There's got to be a reason and we know the reason why
            Gb                      E   
You try to put on those airs and act real cool
        Gb         E                Gb    E     Gb
But you got to realize that you're acting like a fool
             Gb                      E
if it's a music, we can use it, be free to dance
D                 E           Gb    E     Gb
We don't have the time for psychological romance
      Gb                 E                  D
No romance, no romance, no romance for me mamma
         E            Gb    E     Gb
Come on baby tell me what's the word


Chorus:
Gb                     E
A Word up - up up - everybody say 
          D         E              Gb    E     Gb
When you hear the call you've got to get it under way
       Gb           E             D                E
Word up it's the code word, No matter where you say it 
     Gb    E     Gb
you know that you'll be heard - whoo! -

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
