De La Soul – Stakes Is High lyrics
Vibrations... )...Yeah
Check... the vibe y'all vibe, y'all (vibes...
Vibrations... )...Dirty

rotten, tooth Select
from the sound booth Collect
grammer Like
panhandlers On
skid row My
john doe'll Build
a vision where thought can go walking Without
the devil hawking Stakes
is high like weed smoke We
need folk To
she'd the truth To
the wide youth Truth

*enola Enola:*
got soul To
hell with role models teachers, and guardians With
rock-hard erections and, seven incisions Raw
intercourse with mother nature She
likes to bang to the left Teach
all women and children only the best Stakes
is higher than the highest mountain Mos
def Mos

*def This:*
is the 21st century poor, s t**ain't quaint The
zulu apaches got battle cries and war paint I
do with some care cause I is who they ain't That
ain't strokin' my sack it's, just a black ink fat Boy
ain't, no keeping me back Yes. mos, def is the handle Try
to test and get supressed like a government scandle Exhibit
is exquisit and a level degrees Flying
high in the sky with the supa emcees Posdnuos

I! write rhymes like I come from new york city Rollin'
with commitees making, your whole life shitty Shutting
down your rap group and, you best to believe Brothers
become permanent n s****when they soul is a track And
ain't no n s****like the one I know Cause
what I know is them n s****gotta go Make
me feel I need to by a for-fo (bloop
bloop) sending them express to hell though Mos

*def Classic:*
material like run dmc At. least Four,
out of five every, jeep owner agrees That
it's them damn high stakes That
make you pump yo' brakes (vibes) Pump
yo' brakes (vibes) Pump
yo' brakes (vibes vibes), Haha

with the viggy-vibe ya'll Posdnuos...

is high You...
know them stakes is high when, we dealing with the (vibes
Vibrations... )...Stakes
is high Man...
them stakes is high Truth...

*enola Doctor:*
i'mma, make those house calls and exercise those Some
people getting burned playing, their toes close Fumble-eye
sky tumble-ing down stay, humble-eye Sidle
up and ride Beware. who, you idolize Religious
hypocrits who give away elbow in the face I'm
enola system, solar plug, one solely, mine Posdnuos

went from picking noses to pockets directly, to jail Now
we think we better ourselves trying to be calm When
you're puffing that (hay )!in the middle of the barn Stopping
thoughts so, you can stretch a mind into yarn Funeral
lawns are drunk from kids pouring out liquor Respecting
life by, met up with a little quicker And
we let the body rock the party Until
the party rocks the body Cause
a scuffle broke loose due to too much juice and gin Run
in the minds of opposing men Trugoy

my, mens is going to have to learn when to say when And
when to ask why you, accept the [ ]? Cause
you dwelling in a sty Can't
face it man to man son, I, see it in your eye Conseal
it why, try Display? it when, you relay it You're
just a lie (vibes.

Vibrations... )...Posdnuos

was a lovely lady who's intent I thought I had on rosa parks But
her ex came to town and took back her heart And
she left me standing silly in the dark with a mic Caught
up in expressions And
learning lessons of depression Sometimes
it seems I can't connect with female beings To
my little aya-mo when she having them dreams And
her facial gleams are sweet but, soon to switch to bitter Cause
when she reaches sixteen she'll be considered a piece of meat Not
a treat but a trick to s in** showers People
kick last days we, in the last hours Minutes
and seconds I, reckon it won't be long Til
recorded ways of striving will be dead and gone But
this loss coming through despite who try to see me These
brothers are too hard sisters, are too easy Sleazy

*def Trying:*
to please me with that s appeal** When
you're livin' in the ghetto man you got to deal Brothers
scatter from the function when they spot the steel Weapons
get concealed when, there's plots to kill The
on all up in the party cause this rock is real N
s****ain't stoppin' to think so they ain't gon' stop the violence Music
too loud to hear so, doug E Fresh. say "silence "!Through
the projects they, terminate and expect violence I
rather take it easy keep, it breezy like the attic Truth

*enola Revi-revolutionize:*
keep it complex so, don't offend Nine
times out of ten men, and women pretend And
mobilize devil eyes Fight
beside [ ]? you, are the type For
everything in life has a price Love
black berry molasses So
smart you're stupid Hard
heads create soft asses Trugoy

like molasses That's...
how you move and, how we prove with that Come
with the full-pack to, keep it native Like
tongues we, brung the lickin' for all your earth spittins Can't
write without that excite But
when you come down you're, s t**is dumbfound Sounded
weak like mundane someday, You
figure one day you'll, play the roles of masterpiece Until
then cease And
I'm out like reece (vibes
get some reese's pieces Peace
the (vibes...
Vibrations... )...(vibes
Vibrations... )...
