"Lissen" as written by and Malcolm J. Rebennack....
Everybody has an advisor
Who advises the advisor
And nobody thinks for their-self Who Thinks for everybody else

Gotta listen to learn
Learn to listen
If you ever want to know all that stuff your missin
Listen close take heed
You might hear a little something that you need
Listen up listen at me
Better learn to listen
Better learn to listen

If your use to someone lookin over your shoulder
How you gonna grow any wiser and older
Now if you don't listen close at
Your teacher how can they understand and reach ya

Gotta listen to learn and
Learn to listen
If you ever wanna know all that stuff your missin
Listen close take heed
You might hear something you need
Listen up listen at me
Learn to listen
Better learn to listen

Facts of life come
Down to common sense
Now what you don't learn in school you might learn from experience hard knocks could
Break a head hard as wood
Open mind gonna catch anything
It understood

Gotta listen to learn
Got to learn to listen
If you ever wanna know all that stuff your missin
Put down that beer, turn off the TV, turn off that FM and the CD better listen at me
Better learn to listen
Take that cotton out your ear
Stuff it in your mouth
Crack back, chill out, that's what I'm talkin about
Turn down that VH1 and MTV
Turn off your Walkman turn down the B E T. Learn to listen
You gotta listen to learn
Sometime you act like a know it all, better be real.
