Lyrics:

V1
Now if you're black, gotta watch your back
About this colon cancer thing.
Guideline ages dipped, so don't you flip
Cuz of early colonoscopy.
For your health's sake, don't make the mistake
Not payin' colon cancer attention.
Despite your fears, start at 45 years
To remain cancer free.
Chorus
If you don't want it then you better put a scope in it
If you don't want it then you better put a scope in it
Prevention's better than just prayin' and a hopin' it
If you don't want it then you better put a scope in it
wo oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh oh x2

V2
If your hair is afro curly, colon cancer starts early
It's something that runs in your genes
Drink it up, that Golyte in your cup
Gotta flush you out for our machines.
Let's move on prevention, no need for tension
Release your apprehension
Just be aware of your derriere
And screen at 45!
Chorus
If you don't want it then you better put a scope in it
If you don't want it then you better put a scope in it
Stop the cancer -- let the GI doc grope in it
If you don't want it then you better put a scope in it
wo oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh oh x2)
Start at 45 (7x)
Now show your booty!
woo oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh
oh oh oh 2x
