The Dude Lyrics

CHORUS

Who is it
That walks the street with all the action?
(It's the Dude)
Who is it
That always gets a hot reaction?
(That's the Dude)

VERSE 1

Don'tcha' go makin' no mojo moves
'Round the Dude
(Don't try no funny bizness.)
Don'tcha'you be coppin' no attitude
With the Dude
(Hey, hey here comes the Dude)

THE DUDE SPEAKS

Hey everybody in the neighborhood,
The beauty's on duty, better hear me good.
Sister e-flat tomato, brother b- flat balloon,
Somethin' funky's goin' down better listen to my tune.
I graduated from the college of the street,
I got a Ph..D. In how to make ends meet.
Inflation in the nation don't bother me,
'Cause I'm a scholar with the dollar
You can plainly see.

BRIDGE

He's a winner 'cause it's in his blood.
Ain't nobody who's out there like him.
Any corner in the neighborhood,
That's the place that you'll always find him.
Soft talkin' with a rap so sweet,
(He does it good)
Ladies call him the candy rapper.
(They want his love)
He's the only one that's really cool
(He's really cool)
That's the reason why he's the Dude.

CHORUS

Who is it
That ain't got time for foolish talkin''?
(it's the Dude)
Who is it
That looks so clean you can't ignore him?
(That's the dude)

VERSE 2

Don'tcha go mess with
His walkin' stick--not the dude
(Don't try no funny bizness)
Don't you double-cross him
He's super slick--he's the dude
(Hey, hey here come the dude)

THE DUDE SPEAKS AGAIN

I'm a stone cold taker,
I'm a piggy bank shaker,
An' I don't waste my time talkin' trash.
So if you go to my school,
You gotta learn this rule--
Don't let your mouth write a check
That your body can't cash
If you never had it,
Don't pay it no mind.
I know you're gonna get it,
If you take a little time.
Take a piece from the east,
A piece from the west
Put it where it feels good--
Let the Dude do the rest

CHANT

See him steppin' down the street
No forgettin', he's the Dude.
See him steppin' down the street
Don't forget it he's the Dude

REPEAT VERSE 1
