"U Can't Touch This" as written by Rick James, Alonzo Miller and Stanley Kirk Burrell....
Can't touch this
Can't touch this
Can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh)
Can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh)

My-my-my-my music makes me so hard makes me say oh my Lord
Thank you for blessing me with a mind to rhyme and two hype feet
That's 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 u can't touch

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

Fresh new kicks and pants
You got it like that now you know you wanna dance
So move out of your seat
And get a fly girl and catch this beat
While it's rollin' hold on pump a little bit
And let me know it's going on like that like that
Cold on a mission so pull on back
Let 'em know that you're too much
And this is a beat uh u can't touch

Yo I told you u can't touch this
Why you standing there man u can't touch this
Yo sound the bells school is in sucker u can't touch this

Give me a song or rhythm
Making 'em sweat that's what I'm giving 'em
Now they know when you talk about the Hammer
You talk about a show that's hyped and tight
Singers are sweatin' so pass them a mic
Or a tape to learn what it's gonna take
And now he's gonna burn
The charts legit either work hard
Or you might as well quit

That's word because you know
Can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh)
Can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh)
Break it down
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh)
Stop Hammer time

Go with the flow in a spin if you can't move to this
Then you probably are dead
So wave your hands in the air
Bust through the 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

Can't touch this
Look man u can't touch this
You'll probably get hyped boy 'cause you know you can't u can't touch this
Ring the bell school's back in break it down
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Stop Hammer time
(Oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh) u can't touch this
(Oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh) u can't touch this
(Oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh) u can't touch this
(Oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh) break it down
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Stop Hammer time

Every time you see me that Hammer's just so hype
I'm dope on the floor and I'm magic on the mic
Now why would I ever stop doing this
With others makin' records that just don't hit
I toured around the world from London to the bank
It's Hammer go Hammer
It's a Hammer yo Hammer and the rest go and play

Can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh)
Can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh)
Can't touch this (oh-oh oh-oh-oh)
Yeah u can't touch this
I told you u can't touch this (oh-oh oh-oh-oh)
Too hype can't touch this
Get me outta here u can't touch this
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

    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

    Stop. Hammer time

    U can't touch this
    U can't touch this
    U can't touch this
    U 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 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
    U can't touch this
    U can't touch this
    Yeah,U can't touch this
    I told you, U can't touch this
    Too hype, can't touch this
    Yo, we outta here, 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.
