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 I:
Don'tcha' go makin no mojo moves
'Round The Dude
(Don't try no funny bizness.)

Don'tcha' 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 P.H.D. in how to make ends meet
Inflation in the nation don't bother me,
'Cause I'm a scholar with a dollar
You can plainly see/

Bridge:
He's a winner 'cause it's in his blood
Ain't nobody whose 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 II
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
No forgettin', he's The Dude

Repeat Verse I
