Lord M is my Name

A player of Fame

I'm the bard of the bars

 Make with the Snake

 A desperate woman

 I'll find maybe a nine

 or a dime

off the hook fine

 what’s goin’ down

The moose hunts around

where buttaface abound

in my crib face down

    2) Lift your right heel, put your weight on your right toe, make sure your right knee is bent

    3) Slide your left foot back (keep it flat) and keep your left leg very straight

    4) When your left foot is all the way back, do the following all at once:

    5) Put the right heel down by straightening the right leg

    Put the left heel up by bending the left knee and shift your weight to the left toe.

    Now slide your right foot back and make sure it stays flat until it is all the way back.

    Also make sure that your left knee stays bent and your left heel stays up until the right foot is all the way back

    The sliding foot is always flat until the very end of the movement.

    The stationary foot is always up on the toes until the very end of the movement.

    Michael Jackson tries to prove it a hoax

    The Electrofunk Urban Dance is known for the moves Lock and Pop.

    This came from a dance called the mannequin (or robot). Locking up and Popping open are attempts to imitate creaking hinges.

    This goes way back but on the big screen The Tin Man, in The Wizard of Oz made it extremely popular.

    The Tin Man who is the avatar of the dehumanized industrial laborer, revived by Oil.

    As Lord M always says "Only STANDARD OIL COMPANY can save us.".

    Michael Jackson revived this popular dance in 1974 for the song Dancing Machine
