    Shocklee - Sadler - Ridenhour

    I get down to what it is
    And if it ain't funky (see ya)
    People askin' me what's goin' on
    With my mind
    (Huh) wait a minute

    It's just a matter of race
    Cause a black male's in their face
    Step back for the new jack swing
    On the platter scatter huh
    We got our own thing
    Just jam to let the rhyth run
    Day to day, America eats it's young
    And defeats our women
    There is a gap so wide we all can swim in
    Drown in (uh get down) an get it
    Got it goin' on wit it
    Sister (hey) soul sister
    We goin' be all right
    It takes a man to take a stand
    Understand it takes a
    Woman to make a stronger man
    (As we both get strong)
    They'll call me a crazy Asiatic
    While I'm singin' a song
    Oh my god, oh my lord
    I can't hold back
    But I get exact on a track
    It's an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
    Forget about me
    Just set my sister free
    R-e-s-p-e-c-t my siters, not my enemy
    (Cause we'll be stronger together)
    And make the suckers say
    (Damn) this generation

    They don't know what we got goin' is (sound)
    To turn it all around
    To my sisters I communicate
    With the bass and tone
    Thru speakers and the microphone
    Cause I'm tired of America dissin' my sisters
    (For example, like they dissed Tawana)
    And they try to say she's a liar
    My people don't believe it
    But even now they're getting higher
    Of the feeling inspiration
    We must know that in this nation
    Every single generation
    (They teach us how to dis our sisters)
    Stange as you say, I say revolution
    Need for change brings on revolution
    The great book just look see solution

    God chooses who and what for the bruisin'
    There's been no justice for none
    Of my sisters
    Just us been the ones that's been missin' her
    Now we got to protect
    We get together and damn this generation

    I said so to what it is
    Where it is
    She needs a li'l respect
    There it is
    I say she needs a lotta
    Brother from a mother like me has gotta
    Give it up
    Give it now
    And pass it all around
    To my soul (sister)

    They disrespected mama and treated her like dirt
    America took her, reshaped her, raped her
    Nope, it never made the paper
    Beat us, mated us
    Made us attack our woman in black
    So I said sophisticated B, don't be one
    Not to head the warning crack of dawn
    Or is it the dawn of crack?
    Stop the talk they say, but
    We talk and say whats right or wrong
    Some say we wasting time singin' a song
    But why is it that we're many different shades
    Black woman's privacy invaded years and years
    You cannot count my mama's tears
    It's not the past but the future's
    What she fears
    Strong we be strong
    The next generation
    It's what not who we are facin'
    The fingers pointed to us in our direction
    The blind state of mind needs correction
    Word to the mother we tighten connection
    To be a man you need no election
    This generation generates a new attitude
    Sister to you we should not be rude
    So we come together
    And make 'em all say
    Damn this generation
