QUEEN LATIFAH - Evil That Men Do Lyrics



[queen latifah]
You askedI cameso behold the queen
Let's add a little sense to the scene
I'm living positivenot out here knocked up
But the lines are so dangerousI ought to be locked up
This rhyme doesn't require prime time
I'm just sharing thoughts of mine
Back again cause I knew you wanted it
]from the latifah with the queen in front of it
Dropping bombsyou're up in armsyou're puzzled
The lines will flow like fluid while you're guzzling
The sip I drop you on a bdp-produced track
]from krs to be exact
It's a flavor unit quest that today has me speaking
Cause it's knowledge I'm seeking
Enough about myselfI think it's time that I tell you
About the evil that men do

Situationsrealitywhat a concept!
Nothing ever seems to stay in step
So todayhere is a message to my sisters and brothers
Here are some things I want to cover
A woman strives for a better lifebut who the hell cares?
Because she's living on welfare
I government can't come up with a decent housing plan
So she's in no man's land
It's a sucker who tells you you're equal

[krs-one]
You don't need himjohannasburg's crying for freedom!

[queen latifah]
We the people hold these truths to be self-evident

[krs-one]
But there's no response from the president

[queen latifah]
Someone's living the good lifetax-free
Except for a girlcan't find a way to be crack free
And that's just part of the message
I thought I had to send you about the evil that men do

Tell medon't you think it's a shame?
When someone can put a quarter in a video game
But when a homeless person approaches you on the street
You can't treat him the same
It's time to teach the defthe dumbthe blind
That black-on-black crime only shackles and binds
You to a dooma fate worse than death
But there's still time left
Stop putting your conscience on cease
And bring about some type of peace
Not only in your heartbut also in your mind
It will benefit all mandkind
Then there will be one thing that will never stop
And it's the evil that men do
