Submit Corrections Cancel

I am woman, hear me roar
When I grab the mic it's never a bore
When I'm on stage, sayin' a rhyme
I often wonder what ya think of mine
Is it fresh or weak, or is it live or dead?
Yo, it's got ta be somethin' if you're boppin' your head
To the beat, can I get an amen brother?
Liked that rhyme? Well here goes another

Hold up, hold up, hold up. Check it out. Before we go any further we
Gotta announce who we are. I am DJ K-Rock and this is my homegirl, MC Lyte. Kick it for 'em

We had to pause for station identification
Now ya know my name here's some more information
Well, let's see, what you wanna know about me?
MC L-Y-T-E
The QueenNah, that's too corny
The SexyNah, that gets the guys too horny
The BestNow that sounds conceited
But what is true is true, so it has to be repeated
The best is Lyte, when I'm on the mic
And MC's look straight ahead cos this pitch'll make your neck tired
And I say loosen up and relax
The fiction you been livin' Imma fill with facts
Right now

MC Lyte, DJ K-Rock. Name of the group is Me and My DJ. Kickin' it
Live in '88. Do it

I am woman, hear me roar
Comin' out fresher and flyer than I did before
That's right, I'm well respected
Don't get stupid, I'm well protected
If ya wanna battle I'm well prepared
Me and K-Rock are far from scared, you know what
We're brave, livin' in a cave of gold
Waitin' for the misbehaved to get bold
But as I look around so far so good
MC's behaving just like they should
Hands are folded, no whispering or passing notes
All attention to me ya have to devote
I'm like a teacher, but then again not quite
Cos a teacher's salary I'm makin' a night
On the mic rhymes witty and bright
Maybe that's why the name is Lyte
Yo, bust it, Imma end it right here
DJ K-Rock, you end it over there
