The Dude lyrics

Artist: Quincy Jones

Song Title: The Dude

(feat. James Ingram, Michael Jackson)

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' 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

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

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

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 1]

[Bridge to fade]
