A TRIBE CALLED QUEST lyrics - Anthology

Luck Of Lucien

Original and similar lyrics
Verse 1: Q-Tip Brother, brother, brother, Lucien, you're like no other. Listen very close 'cause I don't like to boast. Instead, I'll tell the tale of a French who prevailed Through the Mr. Crazy Rabbits who were always on his tail. ? on sale, your rumour starts to wail. Get caught with stolen goods and you will go to jail. If you go to jail, then who will pay the bail? They'll put you back to France on a ship with a sail. Escargot, Lucien, you eat snails. (Hey yo Tip, what's wrong with snails?) From the Zulu nation, from a town called Paris, Came to America to find liberty. Instead of finding pleasure, all you found was misery, But listen, Lucien, you have a friend in me. Oh, luck luck will drive you butt baddy. Next time you get some wheels, make it a Caddy. In terms of doing good, I know you wish you really could, But listen, brother man, I really think you can. Succeed with the breed of the brothers on your back. It's the creme de la creme, and you can bounce with that. It'll take a minute, ?rice?, so take my advice. Trust in us, and thus you trust in your life. Lucine, Lucien, Lucien, Lucien. You should know! Verse 2: Q-Tip Are you ready, Lu? This one is for you, Comin' from a true-blue, fits like a shoe. ? or Commenet-allez-vous ? Lucien, I'll leave it up to you. Voulez vous (vous). Endez vous (vous). Coo-coo (coo). Les poo-poo (poo) Watch that lass, gonna backlash fast. Can you get a grip on the crackhead dip? Sold you a paper bag, guess he saw you comin', VCR from a neck-bone bummin', $10 brother, he was hummin' and strummin', Only had 20, he was livin' like ya slummin', Gave him the money, well, I thought that was somethin', Lookin' like a kid who was lost in crumbin'. Don't worry about a thing, I won't get specific. This is a song that is long and prolific. Think of the stuff that I said if you can. Figure it out, compute, understnad. No problemo, I'll help you with your demo If you go to the store for me. Lucien, I'm just kiddin'. You should know! Verse 3: Q-Tip You gotta get a grip on the missions you'll be takin', Not so much the mission, but you got crazy ignition. Sure, the sugar-babies wanna give you a chance With the French savoir faire and the sexy dance, But is she really fly, or is she a guy? I won't ask why, 'cause I know that you try. You try too hard, is that the answer to the riddle? Instead of doin' so much, why don't you do just a little? Boy, what a cad, I guess we shouldn't treat him bad. In fact, it would be nice if we understood him like A case of positionin' the feet in the shoes, Sympathetic reason in the case of the blues. Lucien is blue, even though he's really brown. I had to make the sound, his life is too profound. On the up-and-up, he's somethin' like a little pup, Young and naive, it's hard to believe. As long as you're strong, you can quest with the questers, Jolly like a jumping bean or a jester. Lucien, Lucien, Lucien, Lucien. You should know!

Another Victory

Big Daddy Kane "It's a Big Daddy Thing"
Verse 1: Here comes the conquering brother that fathoms and never ceases. Violators pick up the pieces (uh) That are left behind as you're left to find The fury of the five fingers of death are mine, Rippin' on the microphone, receitin' poem, Givin' competition a Big Daddy syndrome. Some step up, (mmm) none kept up (mmm). They rap a brief moment and then shut up. Lips are sealed because all of this is real. I'm not about frontin', I tell the real deal of society (what); So how we livin, Like a turkey on Thanksgiving or like Robin Gibbons? Not to offend, I just want you to comprehend every message I send (tell 'em), 'Cause I don't understand, I have to wonder, damn, How could this lifestyle be fun to man, To see a brother gettin' paid undercover, Sellin' drugs to one another, 'Cause all the glamour you get is miscillaneous And all the product you sell is real dangerous Like um, um, let's say, un, poison, Destruction to all your own boys and girls who like to buy and give it a try, Admire and can't deny the high, that's why they soon die. These are the games that a fool would play today For our own kind to decay. No sign of brotherly love, Just scavengers in search of..... Chorus: Another victory (cut and scratched) Verse 2: When I'm ridin' in my Volvo, cops harass me. They never ride past me, they hound me like Lassie, Wantin' to give me a summons or a ticket. Huh, I got a place for them to stick it (kick it). They can't understand to see a black man Drivin' a car that costs 25 grand. The first thing they say is Where'd you steal her? And then they assume that I'm a drug dealer. Huh, that just makes me wanna laugh, 'Cause now I'm a star and your son got my autograph, So all the cops on the highway gettin' me, My name ain't Kieth, so could you please stop Sweatin' me So I can flow and go on, so on and so on To all the jams Cee throw on. Reachin' a summit as you learn from it, A lesson taught from yours truly, so here cometh The royal majesty, others have to be Fully prepared, though they still won't last with me, So when you hope to hang or even handle, I'll show the meaning of power and just cancel (period). Out of order, conquer and slaughter, You're comin' up shorter, boy, you'll need more to Compete 'cause the heat is deep in concrete, Defeat, bring up the fleet, flee 'fore we meet Or stay away, puttin' new rhymes on layaway. Then come get this when you're ready for business 'Cause aaaaah yeah, I'm with this (I'm ready). Yo, Mister Cee, what is this? (Repeat chorus) Verse 3: MC's and enemies I freeze at 32 degrees Because they can't drop rhymes like these. Competition never saw none done, So pay attention as I mention the 411. Just the other day, I heard a brother say, Taxi cabs don't even come my way. They all be afraid they won't get paid So they zoom right past and pick up a lighter shade, And if they stop, the first thing they want, No more than two people and the money up-front, Treatin' me like I'm some type of thug. It might sound bugged but they don't wanna get mugged. Who's in the right or wrong? It's time to unite along The righteous with a walk in success and be strong. Instead of lookin' for someone to beef with, A brother like the Big Daddy Kane is peace with Rappers of today like (Kid'N'Play), Hey, even my man L.L. Cool J, (Stetsasonic) and EPMD, Public Enemy and (BDP), Salt 'N' Pepa 'cause we can't sever never, Wheihter, whatever, we better stand together. That means unite, not fightin' or fussin' or cussin'. Save all the base for the pipe and start lovin' One another 'cause separation is a flaw, So endure for more and stop lookin'; for.... (Repeat chorus 'till end)

JOE BUDDEN "Halfway House"
[Hook: Bryan Adams - "Brothers Under The Sun" Sample] I had a dream - of the wide open prairie I had a dream - of the pale morning sky And we were the same - just the same - you an' I. We are like birds of a feather We are two hearts joined together We will be forever as one... My brother under the sun. [Verse 1: Joe Budden] Mic check, mic check, mic check, mic check Mic check, 1, 2, 1, 2. Ol' head said reality is fake an' fake's the new real Nuttin' but strive to me, but takin' a few pills. Ain't try'nna be the dude that's raisin' the blue steal Vic's help me escape, they give me a new feel. Unedited, ay'day is a newsreel, some cake an' a few bills Honestly, all it'll take is a few mill (for what?) For me not ta' have ta' portray no true skill (but!) But lemme' jus' watch what I say, the truth kills. (So) Be careful what'chu wish for If I totally ignore it, I might withdraw. I used ta' be pissed-off, piss-poor Money crisp-poor, (it was) like this short. It was kinda' hard ta' get the whole puzzle workin' wit' half a jigsaw I got mine, let me help you get yours wit'out gettin' ripped off. I left a trail nigga, follow it An' when it's gone, make a new one, don't remodel shit. Oh!

Ol' case, new judge, new verdict (what else?) A new outcome like somebody reversed it (I mean I'm) I feel like I'm a new man, a new purpose. (Oh!) It's like a nigga ain't feelin' so worthless Kneel down an' worship, all them years was worth it. So when he opened his mouth, I was stunned He said, "You can't deny man his son." Be clear. So if he wanna be there, you let 'em be there Be fair, I mean, I can see he wants ta' be near. I can see that he cares I'll lock your ass up you don't oblige, be-ware.

(Huh?!) Jus' sad, get mad 'cause my bitch bad Everyday she switch heels, switch bags. (Whoa!) It's like we livin' on a dock nigga, big pad You can't afford a deposit on my closet. (Not even) Since you, all I ever known was fly shit Unfortunately, you ain't fittin' that logic. 'Cause you're much less Sometimes you gotta' stand by your failures to recognize your success. Still, I'll be the bigger man an' wish her all the best While knowin' she'll never get it So why would she ever quit it, it's ridiculous. [Hook: Bryan Adams - "Brothers Under The Sun" Sample] We are like birds of a feather We are two hearts joined together We will be forever as one... My brother under the sun.

Chasing Forever

WILL SMITH "Big Willie Style"
Verse 1: Will Smith Early mornin' wake up Gently with the Caress on your hand And that Kimono that I bought you on my trip to Japan Sunshine peekin through the venitian blinds Four years, and like wine, you got finer with time I got a question, if the prodda dressin and the Gucci All got goes, and the freeze on the Lucci I mean real bad girl, I'm talking rougher than rough Do you think it'd be enough if we just had us? Don't answer quick, think about it cause I'm askin for real Golddiggers goin' to hear this song drivin and crash at the wheel Forever is a long time, so far we gettin along fine No car I ever drove, no ice I ever saw No music I ever made, ain't nothin I wanted more We could deal with whatever together Sunshine, all that other weather, when we chasin forever Chorus: I wanna stay with you forever I wanna spend all my life with only you I wanna stay, lets stay together Chasing forever, with only you Verse 2: Will Smith Chasin forever, a buckwild, endeavorous scene Should we pursue with somethin real or just chasin a dream Or casin' the scene Fore I die I plan To see your soul and eternity in the palm of my hands Now as a man, there's certain things I'm lackin for sure But I'm committed to growin and coming at you mature In the future, I know it ain't gonna be all good But when we feelin the hurt, if we willin to work The eight ball will never turn to see us behind Though I ain't no knight, and my armor don't shine My mom said the lynch pin of love is trust An taught me monogomy is uh, monogamous Plus, for you dinner by candlelight Now don't commit before you sure you understand me right It's a race to a strange place, most see never It's a chase we gotta make together, forever Chorus Verse 3: Will Smith Now you would think after all my heartbreaks I'd be cruel Hiding behind my ego, evil but no Much the contrary, I'm very much certain You searchin for joy, it's on the other side of hurtin Finally found a person, worthy of all Instead of pushin me down, you wanna cushion my fall Your eyes could make the sun rise, all the birds sing Seal it with a kiss, bind it with a ring More carrats than even bugs could eat in a week An the ribbon in the sky, close your eyes don't peek I'll tell you what I see in the future A hacienda so cute with, five little kids callin you mom and callin me dad Havin more good times than JJ had Judging by the look in your eyes, you see it Let no man sever, welcome to forever Chorus to fade
