De La Soul - U Can Do (Life)

rate me


(ahhhh, ahhhh)

c'mon, c'mon, bounce - bounce

c'mon.. bounce, rock, roll

(ahhhh, ahhhh)

Chorus: {sung}

You can do, whatever you want

Whatever you like

It's your own life

So let me be, to do what I want

To do what I like

Cause this is my life


It's been about ten long years, my skin wreaks

flavors that your incense couldn't match

We burn slow like syphillis in your piss, accomodated

with the penicill-in, you're listenin, to

This "Art Official" will keep your shoes moonwalkin

Soon to talk about, "Pop Music"

You'll buy it cause you choose it

A lot of MC's is really S&M'n

Whips and chains, I maintain like a old jazz singer

Elephants in any location

Held back in rotation, an apple a day

only makes a nigga fruity

I eat responsibilities to carry out my duty

?? in the MD's, I pull it out just to polish it

Make notes if you earnin or wait your turnbuckle

I stick to gettin mines like stucco (ahhhh, ahhhh)



I'm that full-time rapper, the nickname's Llama

Part-time father if you ask my daughter's mommas

Missin in action cause the action got a fraction

of the world listenin to me

Got em travellin overseas in lands constantly

Got a sea of hands wavin, ain't misbehavin

but a lot of kids cravin for somethin they ain't got

Like the keys to the ride and a pocket with a knot and it's

holdin they ground til they rot in it

Plottin it, lockin it down strong

cause it's nuttin wrong gettin your bubblin on sticker

But too much bubblin can make you fizz quicker

So watch your stack, keep your fam intact

and pay attention to the now, I'm clearin the mess

While they stressin back in the day, I'm at the front of the night

with my crew shinin light on the (ahhhh, ahhhh)

Chorus 2X


Now we on top of this like a typical bed position

Peepin your view, got your whole crew wishin and waitin

Makin dollars out of ten dime pieces

who be sippin out the glass suckin on the lime pieces included

In my pieces I pen the good livin

And even when we're stressin from in the hood livin

at least we're livin and there ain't no hell in that

Give me a yell in that, and go (ahhhh, ahhhh)


I wanna see the world ten times over

Dive off cliffs and land on oppotunities unthinkable

You sinkin straight to the bottom; while I float in parades

that St. Patty couldn't put up

All my niggaz tryin to build, then throw your wood up

Design life like PNB gears so stand clear for the blast off

Last off my chest, peace to Dav West

Live your life to the fullest (ahhhh, ahhhh)



You can do.. what you want.. what you like

Let me be.. what I want.. what I like
