Man, if you talking bout it, it's a show
But if you move about it, then it's a go
Now, if you talking bout it, it's a show
But if you move about it, then it's a go
Now, if you talking bout it that's for show
But a nigga move about it, then it's a go, yeah
Now, if you talking bout it, that's show
But if you move about it, then it's a go, well

Dynamic electromagnetic style stencils
Golden-tempered circles enjoyed only by the members
Heat sparkles, raining octaves upon the spinners
Movement improvement, smooth shit, you grooving, you a winner
Aqua-walking, languid-talking, just stepped in the cleaners
Upper levels, precious metals drip your neck and fingers
Fifty zillion popped shirts, wave this and leaners
The hard sounding peoples, ain't nothing can't get between us
Dances receiving the splash signals, so to swim in
magical places we get in with the shiny women
Win our idol pink girl, our bodies by wraith division
The moonlight and diamond cloud glistenin' glaze that we dipped in
Every sound, we trying to mash is essential
We run the latest feelings, they just re-rap through the givens
Them are talk first, we are observe and listen
Then shut you off the fiction plots, and friction to the pistons
Ladies that's twistin', the music's kissin', you forbidden
Rappers that fake, make no mistake, you we are dissing
To dance on the floor, and around, that is our mission
No sittin', getting fit and shit. Enjoy your chew with them niggas from
the doors where the black space flow
Black cats, freestyles, big bro
Fly, die high, super wise on the floor
Said it go out fast, but it come back slow
What you know? (what you know?)
That it come back slow
It go out fast, but it come back slow
Nigga, mind how you go, keep your swerve in control
cause it go out fast, but it come back slow

Boogie woogie woogie with your body, feel free
The mind loses connectivity
Over the years, plenty of seed
Wiggle, move the cold in me (saying)

See, you reap what you sow
Gathering it knows really never gets old
Stories and dance around to be told
So I

Shiver me timbers, relax my spine
Play it then, let my soul unwind
Streams of energy now intertwined

To sway my hips comes instinctively
Communication distinctively
To unchain those like minded with glee
To wig out philosaly

United Negro Movement Improvement Act
Like you wanted when the groove went improved you, that
You were wanted on the dance floor and you move back
To the wall with all the ((chu nu sta sing kat))
You plant wildflowers, I was dancing back-to-back
Ch-ch-cheeky, no, we stay geek, asthma attack
As we sweat it out, we get it out, we deal to that
To a girl that make me say, "Bang my heel to that"
And there's no need to oppose or appeal to that
Once the rhythm hits the rhyme I'm a filled with that
Nigga down the sol lime, I'm Corneel, get that
You catch it and the beat's fine, say the realest cats

And then we step out of our trance
Back to 3 dimensions and hands in our pants
and it was such a force, I tried to stop it but I can't
So still it morphs, this shit is way too advanced (too advanced, too advanced)

Black is you, black is me, black is us, black is free
Black is me, black is you, black is us, black is free
Black is us, black is you, black is us, black is free
Black is free, black is you, black is us, black is free

    General CommentThis is a lyrically dense track with great production and a wonderful closing sequence (the "black is you, black is me, black is us, black is free" bit). This is definitely a song worth analyzing.

    General CommentForget which track specifically, but the "black is you" etc part is a direct lift from Ishmael's earlier jazz-hop band Digable Planets
