A Tribe Called Quest – What? lyrics
Babies babble on, they lookin for excuses
Game for the buzzer who kicked it to the losers
Lame as a brain, could be, golly gee
If you see a shrink hell charge you a fee
If you see me ya see the fee is nothing
[fee will be for patience] all that's no fronting
What is a party if it doesnt't't't really rock?
What is a poet? all balls, no cock
What is a war if it doesnt't't't have a general?
What's channel nine if it doesnt't't't have arsenio?
What is life if you don't have fun?
What is a what if you aint got a gun?
What's ali without shaheed muhammad?
Nothing. [calpekur] makes you vomit
What is a quest if the players aint willing?
What is a pence if you don't have a shilling?
Excuse me if Im chillin, hey what, say what
What's a fat man without food in his gut?
What's a child birth, without the umbilical?
What's united parcel, without the deliverer?
What's momma-san, without poppa-san?
What's martial arts without daniel-san?
What's rasheed without tonya, tamika?
What's orange juice and doug e. doug without shaniqua?
Not a not a not a, not a damn thing
What's duke ellington without that swing?
What's alex haley if it doesnt't't't have roots?
What's a weekend if you aint knockin boots?
What's a black nation, without black unity?
What is a child who doesnt't't't know pubery?
What is my label when I exit boom status?
What's menage-a-tois, or, that is
What is sex when you have three people?
What are laws if they aint fair and equal?
What's clark kent without a telephone booth?
What is a liquor if it aint 80 proof?
What are the youth if they aint rebellin?
What's raplh cramden, if he aint yellin
At ed norton, what is coke snortin?
What is position if there is no contortin?
What is hip-hop if it doesnt't't't have violence?
Chill for a minute, doug e. fresh said silence
*four second pause*
What is a glock if you don't have a clip?
What's a lollipop without the good ship?
What's s&m if you don't have chains?
What's a con artist if he doesnt't't't have brains?
What's america without greed and glamour?
What's an mc if he doesnt't't't have stamina?
What's music fractured without mr. walt?
What's trugoy without a phrase called torte?
What's kris lighty if he wasn't such a baby?
What is a woman if she didn't say maybe?
Baby laid down, I removed the frown
What would be my penal cord if it wasn't brown?
What is a paper without a president?
What is a compound without a element?
What is a jam if you don't spike the punch?
Was it bruce lee if you don't like brunch?
Oooh ooh, it's like that you keep goin
Freak freak yall cause you know that we showin
What to go what to go what to go what to go what
To go what to go what to go what to go what!
