Yo, yo, I hope y'all ready
Are ya ready? Here we go

What ya deal with, uhh
What ya deal wit', what ya deal wit'
Turn me up some more?

Incognito, speakin' to ya
Feel this, have it, makin' music
Men and women, boys an' girls an'
Welcome to the movement, the fifth wit' improvement
Aristotle, Plato, Freud
Yeah right, Abstract, never void
I make it easy for y'all to boogie down to
Hard to the ground, ooh the Tribe with the sound boo

Touch me, tease me, feed me, squeezy
Take it easy, never sleazy
Promise that I will not answer
The phone when it rings love, while we do out thing love
Never fakin', it's late, spirits
Through the music is our mission
Honies who were not cooler than the ghetto rebel risin'
To overthrow a ruler

Dearly beloved, dearly departed
There's a reason why we did it
'Cuz it's inside the body and the hearts
So here we are fam let's start, c'mon

Don't beat me in the head with the bullshit bat
C'mon everybody let's start
Don't beat me in the head with the bullshit bat
C'mon everybody let's start

Ummah, Mos, Jane Doe, Willy
Punchline, Wordsworth, SV, Chrissy
S.O.S., Tribe Called Quest
Get it off your chest, say it, "Tribe Called Quest!"
Can you feel it when it hit right?
Can you feel it when we do it?
Truth, power, taste, devour
Niggaz in the street here comes the illest beat now

Move oceans wit' your mental
Think it, do it, be it, embellish
Here's another point for everyone to relish
When Ski busts his tools all y'all foes will embellish
For somethin' wicked at y'all faces
What I see is longin', needin'
Hey I got you with that good stuff
And ya probably won't get enough

Ay-yo, lyrics I got it, lyrics, cadence
Do it with fun and patience
Funky, rhythmic, characteristic
Ebonically lingustic wit' the ghetto futuristic, ay, ay, ay

With the bullshit bat
C'mon everybody let's start
Don't beat me in the head with the bullshit bat
C'mon everybody let's start

Beat me in the head, don't beat me in the head
Don't beat me in the head, don't beat me in the head
Don't beat me in the head, don't beat me in the head
Don't beat me in the head, head, head, head

So here we are fam let's start, so here we are fam let's start
So here we are fam let's start, to the Ummah family lets start
A-yo get off your ass and let's start, a-yo, here we are fam let's start
C'mon, get off your ass and let's start, here we are fam let's start
Here we is fam let's start, get off your ass and let's start
Here we are fam let's start, get off your ass
Ha ha ha, let's start
