[Intro]

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

[Verse 1: Raphael Saadiq]

See, this started in 1988

When a cousin of mine and a brother mine got together

We all lovin’ to love music

And this what the band is all about, everybody sing…

[Chorus]

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

[Verse 2: Raphael Saadiq]

Sometimes I wonder how we stuck together

But I’m so glad and happy we did

It’s four long years and we’re still ready to go

Come on, crowd, everybody dance on the floor and sing it with us

[Chorus]

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

[Verse 3: Raphael Saadiq]

The crowd was movin’ in ‘88

’89, we set the world straight

’90, ’91, we we’re still bumpin’

Here’s ’92 and ’93, AHH…

[Chorus]

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

[Interlude: Raphael Saadiq]

Yeah, it all started in 1988

When a cousin of mine and a brother of mine

That’s Tim and D’Wayne, and myself, Raphael

But right now, I’d like to throw a couple of shots out

To some of the leaving members and some of the band

And their names are: Elijah Baker, we love you, baby

Antron Haile, we loved you too, baby, yeah

And the ones that’s still around

Carl Wheeler, we love you, bro, for real

And then we add another funkster to the band by the name of John T. Smith

He go by B Flat Blues

And then we add another funky brother into the band by the name of *horn*

[Chorus]

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E

T-O-N-Y, T-O-N-I, T-O-N-slash-E
