Uh yeah
Straighten it out
Uh huh
Straighten it out
We got Pete Rock
Straighten it out
And C.L. Smooth
Straighten it out

And we're here to tell you to
Straighten it out
And that's a fact baby
Straighten it out
Now you're gonna kick some lyrics
Straighten it out
Like this c'mon

Walk the fine short line and put the needle to the grind
Representin' one kind seeing eye for the blind
Witness what I carry on bears a further purpose
From how we do slam a few then you want to purchase
A dialogue of funk, you love to pop it in your trunk
I win, more disciplined than a Show-lin monk
Pete Rock and C.L., well set to spark it
The powerful target to destroy the black market

But when you say black, listen, I don't know, you lose me
I guess another beggar can afford to be choosy
I come to the maximum, artist on a major label
Any duplication of this one is fatal
On one to five, I gotta hit ya live
Beat your ass with my tape, any race or shape
'Cuz if they got mine, they got yours too
But together here's what we gotta do

Tell 'em
Straighten it out
Ah, yeah
Straighten it out
You know this is the word
Say what?
Straighten it out
That's right y'all
Straighten it out
Say what?

You got to
Straighten it out
Everybody must
Straighten it out
Say what?
Straighten it out
Yeah
Straighten it out
It's like that
Say what?

The funk legacy I pass on, clearancy for high rates
Every time we sample all the past time greats
Stick it in the SP-1200 beat, I make a loop
Lovely, where the troop in a Lexus coupe
Just a little bit, set to make a whole lot happen
The musical inside my rappin'
Written by the C.L., produced by the P.R.
And add in any credit that you heard thus far

I start from scratch, 'cuz the bass line's critical
Better than the original who first made it
Now you want to sue me, but fans never boo me
Believe I know the times, we been broke, too, G
Here's another sample clear, see ya, get the hell outta here
Like a bootleg, you're over for the year
You'll only get the credit where the credit is due
So, listen, what I shout out is true

Yeah, true
Straighten it out
You gots to tell 'em to
Straighten it out
Say what?
Straighten it out
You got to tell 'em to
Straighten it out
Say what?
Straighten it out

That's right
Straighten it out
C'mon
Say what?
Straighten it out
That's right
Straighten it out
Straighten it out
Say what?

Like the strands of lamb's wool, I'm thinkin' that's said
Here to go to the head and count the locks on a dread
I and I'd 'mit to verify, goin' to multiply
A theory many thought a conspiracy
Here to let you know that it applies to all of us
You're no exceptions to the rule and that's a plus
'Cuz who Jah bless, let no one curse
Straighten out what I be about, reckon above the clout

And let the management work for me
Because I don't need the unnecessary hostility
A proper marketing plan so we can gobble up the dough
Straighten it out, so everybody know
The kids are official with the purpose of a smooth surface
Kickin' the service one time to make 'em nervous
We're finally here and very long overdue
Pete Rock, this one's for the crew

You gotta
Straighten it out
Everybody must
Straighten it out
Say what?
You gotta
Straighten it out
Everybody must
Straighten it out
Say what?

Straighten it out
You got to
Straighten it out
C'mon
Say what?
Straighten it out
All black people must
Straighten it out
Say what?

Straighten it out
Everybody must
Straighten it out
The YG's, they must
Straighten it out
The Hilltop, they must
Straighten it out
The whole money earnin' must
Straighten it out
Everybody must
Straighten it out

Come on
Straighten it out
Ah, yeah
Straighten it out
Ah, yeah
Straighten it out
Ah, yeah
Straighten it out
Ah, yeah
Straighten it out

Ah, yeah
Straighten it out
Ah, yeah
Straighten it out
Ah, yeah
Straighten it out
Ah, yeah
Straighten it out
