"U Can't Touch This" as written by Rick James, Alonzo Miller and Stanley Kirk Burrell....
You can't touch this
You can't touch this
You can't touch this
You can't touch this

My, my, my my music hits me so hard
Makes me say, "Oh my Lord"
Thank you for blessin' me
With a mind to rhyme and two hype feet
It feels good, when you know you're down
A super dope homeboy from the Oaktown
And I'm known as such
And this is a beat, uh, you can't touch

I told you homeboy (You can't touch this)
Yeah, that's how we livin' and ya know (You can't touch this)
Look in my eyes, man (You can't touch this)
Yo, let me bust the funky lyrics (You can't touch this)

Fresh new kicks, and pants
You gotta like that, now you know you wanna dance
So move outta yo seat
And get a fly girl and catch this beat
While it's rollin', hold on!
Pump a little bit and let 'em know it's goin' on
Like that, like that
Cold on a mission, so fall on back
Let 'em know, that you're too much
And this is a beat, uh, they can't touch

Yo, I told you (you can't touch this)
Why you standin' there, man? (You can't touch this)
Yo, sound the bell, school's in, sucka (You can't touch this)

Give me a song, or rhythm
Makin' 'em sweat, that's what I'm givin' 'em
Now, they know
You talkin' 'bout the Hammer, you're talkin' 'bout a show
That's hyped, and tight
Singers are sweatin', so pass them a wipe
Or a tape, to learn
What's it gonna take in the 90's to burn
The charts? Legit
Either work hard or you might as well quit

That's word because you know (You can't touch this)
(You can't touch this)
Break it down!

Stop, Hammer time!

Go with the flow, it is said
That if you can't groove to this then you probably are dead
So wave yo hands in the air
Bust a few moves, run your fingers through your hair
This is it, for a winner
Dance to this and you're gonna get thinner
Move, slide your rump
Just for a minute let's all do the bump
(Bump, bump, bump)

Yeah (You can't touch this)
Look, man (You can't touch this)
You better get hype, boy, 'cause you know you can't (You can't touch this)
Ring the bell, school's back in
Break it down!

Stop, Hammer time!

You can't touch this
You can't touch this
You can't touch this
Break it down!

Stop, Hammer time!

Every time you see me, the Hammer's just so hyped
I'm dope on the floor and I'm magic on the mic
Now why would I ever stop doin' this?
With others makin' records that just don't hit
I've toured around the world, from London to the Bay
It's "Hammer, go Hammer, MC Hammer, yo Hammer"
And the rest can go and play
You can't touch this

You can't touch this
You can't touch this
Yeah (You can't touch this)
I told you (Can't touch this)
Too hot (Can't touch this)
Yo, we outta here (Can't touch this)

    General CommentHere's the rest of the lyrics...

    ...
    Or a tape to learn
    What it is going to take in the '90s
    To burn the charts
    Legit either work hard or you might as well quit

    That's the word,because you know
    U can't touch this
    U can't touch this

    Break it down

    Stop. . . Hammer time

    Go with the flow
    It is said
    That if you can't groove to this
    Then you probably are dead
    So wave your hands in the air
    Bust a few moves, run your fingers through your hair
    This is it for a winter
    Dance to this an' you're gonna get thinner
    Move slide your rump
    Just for a minute, let's all do the bump
    Bump bump bump

    Yeah, U can't touch this
    Look man, U can't touch this
    You better get hyped
    Boy 'cause you know ya can't
    U can't touch this
    Ring the bell, school's back in
    Break it down

    Every time you see me
    The Hammer's just so hyped

    And I'm magic on the mic
    Now why would I ever
    Stop doing this?
    When others making records
    That just don't hit
    I've toured around the world
    From London to the Bay
    It's Hammer, go Hammer, M.C.Hammer, Yo Hammer
    And the rest can go and play
    Can't touch this

    U can't touch this

    General CommentI think this song, and every song for that mattter (even rap songs that usually don't make sense cuz they go to fast) should have a meaning...maybe this one just isnt noticable. Or maybe im just really stoned. Im dont know, im stoned.
