MC Hammer - Addams Groove

Addams Groove was a single track released by artist MC Hammer about The Addams Family, loosely based on the Addams Family theme song. It was featured in The Addams Family film, and was a top ten hit in the United States.

Music Video

A music video was produced to promote the single. The video featured Hammer and several of his dancers performing in their unique style around the Addams mansion, as well as most of the cast of the film. The video opens with Hammer pleading with Wednesday (Christina Ricci) and Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) to refrain from chopping his head off with a guillotine. It concludes with several scenes taking place in the Addams' backyard cemetery, including Thing crawling up and down a Hammer dancer and Gomez (Raul Julia) dueling in a swordfight with Hammer over Morticia (Anjelica Huston).

Besides the main characters, the tombstones of Muerto, Cousin Fledge and Mona Addams are seen.

The music video was played in theaters prior to the beginning of The Addams Family movie for the first few weeks of its release.

A higher quality version of the music video of the Addams Groove can be found here in a YouTube video.

Lyrics

[You rang?]

(Chorus:)
They do what they wanna do, say what they wanna say
Live how they wanna live, play how they wanna play
Dance how they wanna dance, kick and they slap a friend
[The Addams Family]

Now I was cold coolin', you know [maxin' and relaxin']
Just kickin' it around the house [Oaktown kickin' it]
When a knock, a knock, a knock and a voice yo!
Can Hammer come out? [what's up?]
Now I don't mind [mind] being a friend
And showin' a little bit of flava [flava]
But Wednesday, Pugsley, Gomez, Fester [oh man]
Man, them some strange neighbours

(chorus)

I remember the day I needed to borrow
A little bit of pepper [for my chicken]
The next thing you know, comin' at me
Was a hand with the fingers high steppin' [I'm witcha]
Now I tried to play it along [you know]
And act like I was havin' a ball [ha ha]
But what do I see [yo] a perm with feet [Cousin It]
Standin' about three feet tall [I'm outta here]

(chorus)

Speakin' and thinkin' about the Addams
You know the Hammer is with it [I'm with it]
Act a fool, no bones, Swooop, Goofy and Randy
You know we kick it [the posse]
Now is the time to get in your mind
It's OK to be yourself [be yourself]
Take foolish pride and put it aside
Like the Addams, yo! they def [that's a family!]

(chorus)

[Addams] Too legit
[Addams] Too legit
[Addams] Too legit [Who's too legit?]
[The Addams Family]
[You know what I'm sayin', the Addams]
[Addams] Too legit [oh yeah]
[Addams] Too legit [talkin' 'bout the Addams now]
[Addams] Too legit [I'm saying it's the Addams now]
[The Addams Family]
[Yo! take me to the bridge]
[Thank you Fester]

Oh yeah, yeah
Oh, this is the Addams groove right here, ha ha

[Addams] yeah yeah
[Addams] just like that
[Addams] oh yeah
[The Addams Family] You know you gotta fully understand

They do what they wanna do, say what they wanna say
Live how they wanna live, play how they wanna play
Dance how they wanna dance, kick and they slap a friend
[The Addams Family]

[Addams] Too legit
[Addams] Too legit
[Addams] Too legit
I'm tellin' you I saw the hand
[The Addams Family] Thing, man, I saw

They do what they wanna do, say what they wanna say
Live how they wanna live, play how they wanna play
Dance how they wanna dance, kick and they slap a friend
[The Addams Family] It's the Addams

Yeah, thank you Fester, I needed to go back to the bridge again
Thank you, thank you, now check this out

(chorus)
