Public Enemy - Fight The Power

1989 the number another summer (get down)
Sound of the funky drummer
Music hittin' your heart cause I know you got soul
(Brothers and sisters, hey)
Listen if you're missin' y'all
Swingin' while I'm singin'
Givin' whatcha gettin'
Knowin' what I know
While the Black bands sweatin'
And the rhythm rhymes rollin'
Got to give us what we want
Gotta give us what we need
Our freedom of speech is freedom or death
We got to fight the powers that be
Lemme hear you say
Fight the power


As the rhythm designed to bounce
What counts is that the rhymes
Designed to fill your mind
Now that you've realized the prides arrived
We got to pump the stuff to make us tough
from the heart
It's a start, a work of art
To revolutionize make a change nothin's strange
People, people we are the same
No we're not the same
Cause we don't know the game
What we need is awareness, we can't get careless
You say what is this?
My beloved lets get down to business
Mental self defensive fitness
(Yo) bumrush the show
You gotta go for what you know
Make everybody see, in order to fight the powers that be
Lemme hear you say...
Fight the Power


Elvis was a hero to most
But he never meant shit to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain
Mother fuck him and John Wayne
Cause I'm Black and I'm proud
I'm ready and hyped plus I'm amped
Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps
Sample a look back you look and find
Nothing but rednecks for 400 years if you check
Don't worry be happy
Was a number one jam
Damn if I say it you can slap me right here
(Get it) lets get this party started right
Right on, c'mon
What we got to say
Power to the people no delay
To make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be
(Fight the Power)

VERSE:(a pause in beginning of verse)
Hey bonita, glad to meet cha
for the cunnin' stunning you, miss I must beseech cha
Hey, being with you is a top priority
Ain't no need to question the authority
Chairman of the board, the chief of affections
You got minds that sway in your direction
Hey, you're like a hip-hop song you know
Bonita applebum you got to put me on


VERSE:(a pause in beginning of verse)
38-24-37, you and me hon, we're a match made in heaven
I like to kiss you where some brothas won't
I like to tell you things some brothas don't
If only you can see through your elaborate eyes
Only you and me hon, the love never dies
Satisfaction, I have the right tactics
And if you need them I got crazy prophylactics
So far I hope you like rap songs
Bonita applebum you got to put me on
