Right On Lyrics

by The Roots

Hit it

We should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's, right on
It was right on

We should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's, right on
It was right on

Yo, I try to get it how I live it
A lotta people counting on me, kinda like a digit
It's a cold world, I'm not frontin' like it isn't
It's no time for comin' up shorter than a midget

Ya'll know I'm a raise the bar though, like bitchin'
You see all them stars don't blink, you might miss it
It's precious cargo, you gotta be strong to lift it
The light comes in different types, be more specific

Shit, I'm black thought, what could be more prolific
For this love I go above, beyond the limit
I told ya'll I'm above and beyond the gimmick
I get into your head and spread like a pandemic

I never put myself in a race I can't finish
I'm well grounded, founded on the same premise
As any man with a hitlist, it's about business
Yo, can a brother get a witness?
Dig it, right on

We should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's, right on
It was right on

We should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's, right on
It was right on

Alright

Okay, I'm above and beyond hot
My measurement in watts
Time rate and flow of energy
Ain't never gonna stop

Pressure's on I won't pop
Microphone I won't drop
Gemstones, niggas caught me
Shit if I ain't in the spot

Still rhymin' on the hot
New star on the hip
I shine a light for the future
So my presence a gift

It's evident I'm heaven sent
With time and add it elements
Reference for what I represent
To show my benevolence

This is Philly
I'm rapping for the art of the city
Came from southwest Atlanta
Gave my heart to the city

With slugs flying, thugs crying
Every part of it's green
Nigga's shootin' up the club
Like they partyin' with Diddy

Get the diggy
I bring my incandescence to florescence
And In essence
I can burn out more energy per second

I put morning lesson
While I'm smokin' on the blessing
A switch hit like Pete Rose
Let's hit a session
Right on

We should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's, right on
It was right on

We should shine a light on
A light on
And the book of right-on's, right on
It was right on

Take it to the very top
I'm gonna do a snare roll
