Flex Off LyricsStarted 11 years ago by DJbirdflu / toggle topic info
I was wondering if anyone here has the lyrics transcribed for Flex Off off Stepfather (specifically Thes' verse that starts with "there was a black man, a brown man, and some hip hop fans...") I'm curious, but too lazy to sit and transcribe the verse myself (plus I'm at work... can't really have headphones on behind the desk at the library). The lyrics aren't on ohhla.com, so if anyone has em, could you please post? Big ups... and Murry Christmas.

Big ups... and Murry Christmas.I have a better formatted version prepared for my lyrics .doc file, but I haven't posted them to the lyrics thread yet, so here's the version I got, before I cleaned it up:
Double K: We ride the rhythm, the fresh is what we give ?em/and Thes deliver the funk to pump in your trunk/ down the highway, known for doing it my way/we jump on stage for the jump off and leave with the high pay/no checks or money orders, just the greenbacks for mean raps and Lord Finesse said it was off the meat rack so heed that/word to the brotha, the vanglorious one/known for hittin? shorties and makin? ?em come up out the purse/I spit a hot verse and make ?em pay for it/the brotha with the sly voice, no way you can ignore it/I shoulda been a pimp cuz I keep the people tapping their feet on the concrete/I get the loot and hit the swap meet and buy a brand new L.A. hat to go with that there/the fat Fred Astaire-case walker/the weed clocker/so next time you see somebody pumpin? it up/tell them all about the ?P? and how we summons the funk/because
Flex off the sounds that I?m pumpin? x 2
Thes One: The only thing I know I truly own is my time/So I?ma make the most of it and travel with this rhyme/the earth is getting smaller, it?s all a matter of shine/from the solar to lunar, radio tuners lock lines to the block/broadcast across the Pacific/a skipping rock leaving audio waves to ripple/talk style is simple/mainly rip a couple of clubs/then me and Double pump it droppin? rhymes, rippin? the dubs/then Crockett & Tubbs doin? their thang, jump on the plane /promoters proud, sobbin? like the end of Purple Rain/train civic-minded Frank Lloyd Wright rhymes/designed to lecture bright minds/respect the life lines of predecessors/we the West Coast professors/study lessons of the yesteryear/couldn?t drop the baton/we?re technical and got an ear/it?s on like a pot of greens/things people hear, still shining, while we hanging, off the chain, like a chandelier/so
Flex off the sounds that I?m pumpin? x 2
Double K: We watchin? the sound and breakin? it down/I say the people of the P when we come to their town/we?re gettin? live just to survive and lettin? it be known/the facts will be shown/this music is so grown man/we the baddest since Bigger & Deafer/since Tougher Than Leather/since the God made ?em clap to this/now I?ma pass to Chris and let him rap to this/I let ?em let ?em rap to this
Thes One: There was a black man, a brown man, and some hip hop fans/the hip hop fans knew they were dope/it took the black man and brown man 3 years to lace the sound/but the fans now, they never lost their hope/so witness new Drummond stepfather with the Willis soon comin?/two illest summonin? the realest/rhythm and the rhyme/the feel it time is here, so pour a beer and just chill/with the P flex a skill and blow your mind
Flex off the sounds that I?m pumpin?
Double K: yeah, and what is that that I hear/oh well, excuse me, can we funk you/welcome to Station W-E-F-U-N-K/and we funk, and we pump, as you already know/we came to steal the show/good grief, thief/yeah/and look it here, we slaves to the rhythm right/pickin? cotton out of pill bottles/ay Thes One I think they hear that funk/make ?em stomp they foot/now we hear everybody jammin?, and it?s cool/we don?t like it, and we give you this to stomp your foot/go ahead, stomp that foot, can you hear it/sounds like a heart beat/yeah, sounds real good/go wiggle y?all/W-E-F-U-N-K?.we funk, yeah
Here's a link to a link for a .doc file for a lot of lyrics I've transcribed. Hopefully, I'll be posting more very soon (Stepfather and a gang of rarities). My transcibing slowed down 'cause of the holidays and christmas shopping and all of that mess...
I'll keep y'all posted.
much appreciated. That had been bothering me all day. I can't say enough how much I love being able to come on this board and talk about the P while I'm waiting for these trife people to come check books out or ask me a question (in the form of an answer).
