Geboortedatum   27-05-1971
Land   Verenigde Staten

Rapper, danser, zangeres en songwriter Lisa Nicole Lopes werd geboren op 27 mei 1971 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in de Verenigde Staten. Haar bijnaam Left Eye had ze te danken aan een ex-vriendje die altijd zei dat hij werd aangetrokken door haar linker oog.


Ze was één van de leden van de R&B-groep TLC. Zelf zong zij weinig, maar voegde zelfgeschreven raps toe aan nummers en speelde keyboard. Ze werd vaak gezien als het creatieve brein achter TLC.


Als presentatrice was ze verbonden aan het programma The Cut, een voorloper van Idols. Zangeres Anastacia werd derde in dit programma, wat zorgde voor haar doorbraak.


Lisa was bezig met een tweede soloalbum en een vierde TLC-album toen ze 25 april 2002 op 30-jarige leeftijd omkwam bij een auto-ongeluk.


In 2009 kwam postuum haar tweede soloalbum uit, Eye-Legacy.


Songtekst

Remember way back in the day (hey hey)
When the kids from around the way
Used to come out and play
And the double dutch bus
Had you bumpin' on down the street
Tryin' to move your feet
While you shake your little booty
To the groove of the beat (uh)
To the beat
To the beat (beat)
You hit the corner and you stopped
Hey y'all there's a party on the other block
We hit the jackpot
Jackpot (what what)
And it's only 12 o'clock
And the sun is hot
Free soda pop
We about to rock rock rock rock...

Hook 1:
What's your name
Lisa
And where you from
9th street
Where you goin'
To the party
Can I come
Uh huh
Ooohhh....they're playin' hop scotch

Come on
Come on hop with me
Come on
Oooohhh..them boys is pop lockin'
Come on
Come on bounce with me

Chorus:
We were dancing all night long
We were dancing all night long
Music pumping and we're jumping
And they played our favorite songs

Chorus

Bridge:
I'm a big city girl
From all over the world
And I do what I wanna do
Right foot left shoe
Then you take it on down
Then you shake it around
Bring it up
Clap your hands
Then you turn it all around

Chorus

Remember when we did the wop (pop pop)
And you used to make that head bop (bop)
Like it would never stop (stop)
And them other grown folks
Gettin' busy with the gigolo
Drinkin' Michelob
It was 6am before they hit the road (uh)
Hit the road hit the road (road)
Them fat gold chains and high top banks (hey)
Run DMC was all you ever played (yeah)
Shell toe Adidas
No strings (mmm mmmm)
There's somethin' cookin' in the pop
About to hit the spot
Boombox
Play me some of that hip hop (hip hop)
Hip hop hip hop hip hop.....

Hook 2:
What's your name
Lisa
And where you from
9th street
Where you goin'
To the party
Can I come
Uh huh
Ooohhh....they 'bout to get it on

Come on
Come on bounce with me
Come on
Oooohhh...they on the dance floor
Come on
Come on rock with me

Chorus

Chorus

Come on
Come on bounce with me
Come on
Come on groove with me

Come on rock with me
Come on
Come on hop with me
