Tricky – We Know lyrics

(Stuff in [greater/less signs] is whispered)

(Tricky:)
We know how you do
We can see through you
We know how you do
We can see through you

(Milo:)
You can't see me
No detail
Make the whole crowd pump their fist like Bobby Seal
Captivate like I was Rap Brown on the mic
Known to stomp a fake rap clown on sight
What you like
No compromise
No stompin right through
No surprise
Cos I got [C's of V]
Man I don't need the weed
Your crew [go wanna] test me
Get it on
I combinate like [Jim Beam]
To the break of dawn
And you'll be that punk in a ditch
You can grab the mic and get rich
(Tricky:)
You say you never heard of this
Do you [uhm] wanna swear to this?
I got a word for this
You wannabe alternative?
Don't carry no chrome even
Life alone
Creepin
Microphone

At fifteen, I started to get high though
Ooh my voice it went from high to low
Some persons hide a little
Like [Clyde] from DJ Milo
That's how it is,
I let [them dandy] handle my business
He got heaps on heaps and on heaps of integrity
And foolish suckers, they're scared of me
There's no need to be scared off
I just got a big mouth
Guess I'll get off
Get back
When you suckers are slack
You smack me, I smack you back

Smack me and I'll smack you back

Smack me and I'll smack you back

[Sing the verdict]
Smack me and I'll smack you back

If you do not suck in high though
Ooh my voice went from high to low

[Mmm..DJ Milo]
At fifteen, i started to get high though
My voice went from high to low
From [Brooke] I hid a little
I hung out with DJ Milo

And that's how it is

[Fifteen...high to low]
(Milo:)
[Kick that shit man]

(Tricky:)
[Yes [????]]

[Back in business]
[[High to ho]]
[Back in business]

Smack me and We'll smack you back

Smack me and I'll smack you back
Smack me and I'll smack you back
You smack me and I'll smack you back

[That's how it is]
Say you've never heard of this
How they wanna [switch] to this
I got a word for this
You wannabe alternative
Fifteen, I sucked in [high to ho]

I get high with DJ Milo

We know how you do
We can see through you

That's how it is

We know how you do
We can see through you

[Don't wanna be alternative]
[I don't carry no chrome]
[I leave my]
[Gun at home]

[Smack me and I'll smack you back]
[That's how it is]
[We back in biz]
[We can see through you]


(etc)
