    I am at work and that song just came on. Reminded me of the college days back in the early 90's.
    2 questions: I can't remember the artist's name that sang this crappy song, but most importantly, what is the end all be all meaning of OPP??? I remember back then people used to say: other people's property (didn't make any sense), then some people would say: other people's pussy (made slightly more sense), and that's about all I ever heard about it.

    Ontario Provincial Police. Now that makes sense since naughty by nature is from Canada [​IMG] After carefully listening to the song again there is another word that is barely noticeable in the chorus: you down with OPP yeah you know me....eh. [​IMG]

    Personally, I thought it was a slogan for the new "OPD" valves on propane tanks.

    For the record, I am not down with OPD!

    Yep, the sanitized (and non-gender specific) version was "other people's property"-- where I think the basic idea they had in mind was "Other poeople's pussy" which could be extended to "Other people's penis"

    Meaning, basically, being down with fucking someone else's girlfriend/boyfriend.

    I have that cued up right for y'all!

    Army with harmony
    Dave drop a load on 'em

    OPP, how can I explain it
    I'll take you frame by frame it
    To have y'all jumpin' shall we singin' it
    O is for Other, P is for People scratchin' temple
    The last P...well...that's not that simple
    It's sorta like another way to call a cat a kitten
    It's five little letters that are missin' here
    You get on occassion at the other party
    As a game 'n it seems I gotta start to explainin'
    Bust it
    You ever had a girl and met her on a nice hello
    You get her name and number and then you feelin' real mellow
    You get home, wait a day, she's what you wanna know about
    Then you call up and it's her girlfriend or her cousin's house
    It's not a front, F to the R to the O to the N to the T
    It's just her boyfriend's at her house (Boy, that's what is scary)
    It's OPP, time other people's what you get it
    There's no room for relationship there's just room to hit it
    How many brothers out there know just what I'm gettin' at
    Who thinks it's wrong 'cos I'm splittin' and co-hittin' at
    Well if you do, that's OPP and you're not down with it
    But if you don't, here's your membership

    Chorus:
    You down with OPP (Yeah you know me) 3X
    Who's down with OPP (Every last homie)
    You down with OPP (Yeah you know me) 3X
    Who's down with OPP (All the homies)

    As for the ladies, OPP means something gifted
    The first two letters are the same but the last is something
    different
    It's the longest, loveliest, lean-- I call it the leanest
    It's another five letter word rhymin' with cleanest and meanest
    I won't get into that, I'll do it...ah...sorta properly
    I say the last P...hmmm...stands for property
    Now lady here comes a kiss, blow a kiss back to me, now tell me
    exactly
    Have you ever known a brother who have another like ah girl or wife
    And you just had to stop and just 'cos he look just as nice
    You looked at him, he looked at you and you knew right away
    That he had someone but he was gonna be yours anyway


    You couldn't be seen with him and honestly you didn't care
    'Cos in a room behind a door no one but y'all are there
    When y'all are finish, y'all can leave and only y'all would know
    And then y'all could throw the skeleton bones right in the closet do'
    Now don't be shocked 'cos if you're down I want your hands up high
    Say OPP (OPP) I like to say with pride
    Now when you do it, do it well and make sure that it counts
    You're now down with a discount

    Chorus:
    You down with OPP (Yeah you know me) 3X
    Who's down with OPP (Every last lady)
    You down with OPP (Yeah you know me) 3X
    Who's down with OPP (All the ladies)

    This girl ah tried to OPP me
    I had a girl and she knew that matter-of-fact my girl was partner's
    that
    Had a fall out, disagreement, yeah an argument
    She tried to do me so we did it in my apartment, bust it
    That wasn't the thing it must have been the way she hit the ceiling
    'Cos after that she kept on coming back and catchin' feelings
    I said, "Let's go my girl is coming so you gotta leave"
    She said, "Oh no, I love you Treach" I said, "Now child please"
    You gots to leave, come grab your coat, right now you gotta go
    I said now look you to the stairs and to the stairwindow
    This was a thing, a little thing, you shouldn't have put your heart
    'Cos you know I was OPP, hell from the very start
    Come on, come on, now let me tell you what it's all about
    When you get down, you can't go 'round runnin' off at the mouth
    That's rule number one in this OPP establishment
    You keep your mouth shut and it won't get back to her or him
    Exciting isn't it, a special kinda business
    Many of you will catch the same sorta OPP is you with
    Him or her for sure is going to admit it
    When OPP comes, damn-- skippy I'm with it

    Chorus:
    You down with OPP (Yeah you know me) 3X
    Who's down with OPP (This whole party)
    You down with OPP (Yeah you know me) 3X
    Who's down with OPP (This whole party)

    Break it down!

    POE, OPE, it's one of those.

    The CRM-114 autodestruct mechanism blew itself up.
