If the Papes Come
A Tribe Called Quest


Uh

The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away

But not Hip-Hop yo, hahah

And let it be known, that we are on some umm

Ehh ahh, uhh, a-chicka-uhh

Ehh ahh, uhh, a-chicka-uhh

And this ain't on the pop tip yo

Are y'all kids tucked in?

Yeah

Here we go


People in the audience, they cry out hoe

People with a gun, yo they'll cry out bo

I don't like a cop, I don't sell a rock

But still the kanga's clock me, after a show

Standin' on the stage and we're pourin' with sweat

To people in the crowd I give what they get

Papers make paid, babies make laid

I don't really worry, nor do I fret


Waitin' for the gimme and boy I got some

Sweat like a peach and tart like a plum

I thought what I think, I rock a bead-link

Legally I'll sip when I turn, twenty-one

A letter to the homeboy that freaked the head dome

The R man wants me to drop my microphone

Gotta be brief, no orders from a chief

Hot butter on what, say what, the popcorn


On the tour bus we hit the truck stop

A dollar for some chips, a quarter for some pop

We laugh and giggle some

Phife kiss the honey buns

Ali Shaheed Muhammad keeps talkin' that shop

The brothers cruise on as we Quest, for the check

Callin' up Famous to see, if it's there yet


Not a bourgeoise, hate the seminar

Ignorant flip, hey Miss you must jet

Flex for the funkiest but start to bounce

Measure Hip-Hop for weight, by the ounce

Bush on the tush, you're pullin' while I push

Play me for the punk then puss, feel the pounce


It's like that y'all

Keep on

Freak freak y'all

Keep on

It's like that y'all

Keep on

Freak freak y'all

Keep on


It's like that y'all

Keep on

Freak freak y'all

Keep on

It's like that y'all

Keep on

Freak freak y'all

Keep on


If the papes come yo yo I won't riff

I just sit down and get, me a spliff

With mines I was born, a child of the corn

Molecules of the land they uplift

Levels is straight, in fact they're rectified

Adrenaline now is crazy multiplied

Four and four is eight, the fraction makes the plate

I make sure the Tribe is in


With the quickness you bare the witness

Flexin' and pumpin' with the fitness

Movin' it, uhh, doin' it uhh

Those who oppose must hit the S-list


Doin' it and doin' it with the whole frame

Look what's in the mind and not, in the brain

On this you can quote, we on a diffy note

Quest for the future, 'stead of the fame

One ninety-one brothers grabbin' they thingies

Forgot the name oh, equivalent to Jimmy


Slip a little bit, you think I have to quit

Ali Shaheed Muhammad, with the singy-singy

Slammin' with a slammy you front, on the case

Right or left nut Ali, plays the ace

Do what you do, flam for a crew

Bonita Applebum blows smoke in Sha's face


Slang for the king you must, if ya have

Dribble hops out giggle yo proper term is laugh

Brothers who are snakes, I label them as fakes

Instincts to travel up the hood path, c'mon


It's like that y'all

Keep on

Freak, freak y'all

Keep on

It's like that y'all

Keep on

It's like that y'all

Keep on


It's like that y'all

Keep on

Freak, freak y'all

Keep on

It's like that y'all

Keep on

Freak, freak y'all

Keep on


{Thank you

As you all know, you just can't believe

Everything you see and hear, can you?

Now if you will excuse me

I must be on my way}
