"Electric Relaxation" as written by Ali Shaheed Jones-muhammad, Kamaal Ibn John Fareed, Malik Izaak Taylor and Ronnie Foster....
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down

Honey, check it out, you got me mesmerized
With your black hair and fat-ass thighs
Street poetry is my everyday
But yo, I gotta stop when you trot my way
If I was working at the club you would not pay
Hey yo, my man Phife Diggy, he got something to say

I like 'em brown, yellow, Puero Rican or Haitian
Name is Phife Dawg from the Zulu Nation
Told you in the jam that We Can Get Down
Now let's Knock the Boots like the group H-Town
You got BBD all on your bedroom wall
But I'm Above the Rim and this is how I ball
A pretty little something on the New York street
This is how I represent over this here beat
Talking bout you

Yo, I took you out
But sex was on my mind for the whole damn route
My mind was in a frenzy and a horny state
But I couldn't drop dimes 'cause you couldn't relate

Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down

Stretch out your legs, let me make you bawl
Drive you insane, drive you up the wall
Staring at your dome-piece, very strong
Stronger Than Pride, stronger than Teflon
Take you on the ave and you buy me links
Now I wanna pound the putang until it stinks
You can be my mama and I'll be your boy

Original rude boy, never am I coy
You can be a shorty in my ill convoy
Not to come across as a thug or a hood
But hon, you got the goods, like Madeline Woods
By the way, my name's Malik
The Five-Foot Freak
Let's say we get together by the end of the week
She simply said, "No," labeled me a hoe
I said, "How you figure?" "My friends told me so."
I hate when silly groupies wanna run they yap
Word to God, hon, I don't get down like that

I'll have you weak in the knees that you could hardly speak
Or we could do like Uncle L and swing an ep in my jeep
Keep it in the down, yo, we keep it discrete
See, I'm not the type to kid to have my biz in the streets

If my mom don't approve, then I'll just elope
Let me sink the little man from inside the boat
Let me hit it from the back, girl I won't catch a hernia
Bust off on your couch, now you got Seamen's Furniture

Shaheed, Phife and the Extra P
Stacy, DJ and my man L.G.
They know the Abstract is really soul on ice
The character is of men, never ever of mice
Shorty let me tell you about my only vice
It has to do with lots of loving and it ain't nothing nice

Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down
Relax yourself girl, please set-tle down

    General CommentThe really hysterical thing is that on "Scrubs" Turk operates to this song (also "I get around" by Tupac). I'm an MD NEVER saw a doc black or white (or brown or yellow..LOL) use anything but classical music.

    General CommentBut agreed with Edowin 503. It's like the classier sex jam-- dirty, but dignified and completely irresistible. Damn.

    General CommentI think it goes like "relaxe yourself girl... be set clear"... I cant here the settle down part. I dig the "its got to do with lots of loving and it aint nuthing nice", lol this is obviously about sex and not that gentle stuff either...

    General CommentThis is my All Time Favorite Song by the Tribe!!!! Electric Relaxation is exactly what the song is singing about!!! And the beat just feeds you the lyrics! It's like this mello, New-York, sweet up-beat, hip-hop s--t that is so hard to come by these days. The words are like a long, phat-ass mack to a girl. You want to get some 101 Macking Skills... find this song, and study it. I love it!! (i wish I was the girl in that video; which was black-and-white. Find that, too!!!)

    General CommentThis song is also my fave!!!

    I love how Tip can be so classy when he's macking.

    Yo, I took you out
    But sex was on my mind for the whole damn route
    My mind was in a frenzy and a horny state
    But I couldn't drop dimes cause *you couldn't relate*

    ...is my fave Tribe lines eva!

    Personally I found a lot of thugsta rap now makes the guy look really carnal...but Q-Tip represents us other classy guys so well, even though we all want the same thing. :)

    Don't entirely get this tho:

    Shorty let me tell you about my only vice
    It has to do with lots of lovin and *it ain't nuthin nice*

    General CommentQ-tip on this song is just unbelievable, the way he bounces off phife and I think the lyric "I'll have you weak in the knees that you could hardly speak" is one of the grooviest in all hip hop/

    General CommentThis song is soo smooth and amazing. Just my opinion though, during the chorus it sounds absolutely nothing like "...please set-tle down" it sound like "...piece of the clan" to me. I keep listening to it and cannot hear "set-tle down" whatsoever no matter how I think about it.

    Who cares I guess ha. F#*king great song. I wish hip hop sounded like this today, can't get enough of ATCQ.
