MC Lyte - Can You Dig It lyrics

rate me

I got the charm and the wit of a pop hit

but I'm street.. "Catch the beat"

Don't drop it, just don't stop it

Don't you dare step off the topic

that I got a one-track mind and this track's all mind

the whole three four five six seven eight nine

in the pocket, burstin in the air are rockets

Creatin lots of Lyte -- get it?

How many different ways can I say it?

Piano Man, how many ways can you play it?

I spell it out, the L-Y-T-E

Without a doubt.. "Got to be funky!"

And it damn sho' nuff is

It gotta be like that, in this rough biz

of music, baby, use it or lose it

What's funky is funky, you can't refuse it

I got a grip on the groove and it won't move

an inch until I pinch this party

"Can you dig it?" "Right on" "Right on!" (4X)

It's my style, love it, or lump it

It's my beat, pass it or pump it

and it thumps, like a heartbeat

And when it gets old, it won't get weak

It'll get stronger, much stronger

Long live the King, but the Lyte lives longer

It's well argumented and well documented

I hold the title of the best, you can't prevent it

With a ten foot pole, you can't hold em

Born to be wild is what a song once told me

was my destiny, so I strive to be the best

Lo and behold..

Every rhyme I write, you gots to chant them

Every song I sing, a national anthem

Is there a message in my music?

If I can do it -- you can do it!

"Can you dig it?" "Right on" "Right on!" (8X)

The L, Y, T, E, has to make

"funky funky funky hit records" Constantly!

So in the advent of an event

I have to invent a dope style comment

I come off with flyin colors

I keep my own identity, compared to no others

It's hard to do, but I pull it through

Cause I'm Lyte the MC, that's what I do

The body snatcher, yo I gots to catch a

MC head up, bring on a batch of

new ones, so I can systematically do em

The old ones, HUH, I already been through em

Two by two, I do em like Noah

Yes you know the time, so let's go

the bottom line, is I'm funk bound

K-Rock and Master T, let's get down

"Can you dig it?" "Right on" "Right on!" (8X)
