The Effect Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It's the F-L-O-B-O-T-S
What did you expect?
You wanted us to move you right to left
Live and direct

It's like
1, 2, 3, 4

Butterfly wing flap, whole thing change
One look, two different books, same page
Front on the range but the beat's contage
Stuck to your feet for 3, 4 days

It's real, too real like film projectors
Bend the letters to find the nectar
It is effective, it will protect ya
From them specters, don't let 'em get ya

How did they escape the rat race?
How'd he make that sound with that bass?
The roof is ablaze so break the glass case
Song so big, affect the tax base

Don't drink the potion, split the ocean
Holy Moses, Pharaoh's forces
Let my people go with purpose
Turn the tide with forward motion

How does it feel to un-glue?
Where do you think we've come to?
What does it take to follow through?
Who is it making you move?

Heavens to Murgatroyd
The situation's purgatory
Brer Rabbit stories, burn categories
The allegory is Adam's story

On the eve of something glorious
Us against them won't bust the system
But trust the pistons, the engine's mis-spent
Our thrust is intense, combustive intent

Boom Jonny 5 better yet Juan Cinco
Rhetoric rep for my Colorado lingo
Whatever preterit's wet by my ink flow
Is spelled out B4

Get it?, because I never get outwitted
Bold-faced type, all capped like a fitted
We'll make you move even if you're arthritic
Something you thought I wouldn't do, I did it

How does it feel to un-glue?
Where do you think we've come to?
What does it take to follow through?
Who is it making you move?

It's the F-L-O-B-B-B-O-T-S
What did you, what did, did you expect?
You wanted us to move you, move you right to left
Live and direct, you ride the effect

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

It's a quilombo with Kenny O on the drum roll
We rocket like Dikembe Mutombo
Djembe to bongo to MPC
We unload and win MVP

So let's be old fashioned, put the beat on blast
And leave a lil' something like a geocache
And if anybody wanna smurf with me
We can take this to the nursery

Like hickory dickory, rhyme so slippery
This emcee, that emcee, wish they could switch currencies
Like a battery, disbelieve flattery
Realistically, it can just be a smattering

To sit and watch the needle peak with Mario C
Reppin' CO and 303
(Speak up, girl)
Even if it's what's they're against
Do the Helen Keller and confront male arrogance

How does it feel to un-glue?
Where do you think we've come to?
What does it take to follow through?
Who is it making you move?

It's the F-L-O-B-B-B-O-T-S
What did you, what did, did you expect?
You wanted us to move you, move you right to left
Live and direct, you ride the effect

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La

It's the F-L-O-B-B-B-O-T-S
What did you, what did, did you expect?
You wanted us to move you, move you right to left
Live and direct, you ride the effect
