[queen latifah] You asked, I came, so behold the queen Lets add a little sense to the scene Im living positive, not out here knocked up But the lines are so dangerous, I ought to be locked up This rhyme doesnt't't require prime time Im just sharing thoughts of mine Back again cause I knew you wanted it ]from the latifah with the queen in front of it Dropping bombs, you're up in arms, you're puzzled The lines will flow like fluid while you're guzzling The sip I drop you on a bdp-produced track ]from krs to be exact Its a flavor unit quest that today has me speaking Cause it's knowledge Im seeking Enough about myself, I think it's time that I tell you About the evil that men do
Situations, reality, what a concept! Nothing ever seems to stay in step So today, here is a message to my sisters and brothers Here are some things I want to cover A woman strives for a better life, but who the hell cares? Because she's living on welfare I government can't come up with a decent housing plan So she's in no mans land Its a sucker who tells you you're equal
[krs-one] You don't need him, johannasburgs crying for freedom!
[queen latifah] We the people hold these truths to be self-evident
[krs-one] But there's no response from the president
[queen latifah] Someones living the good life, tax-free Except for a girl, can't find a way to be crack free And that's just part of the message I thought I had to send you about the evil that men do
Tell me, don't you think it's a shame? When someone can put a quarter in a video game But when a homeless person approaches you on the street You can't treat him the same Its time to teach the def, the dumb, the blind That black-on-black crime only shackles and binds You to a doom, a fate worse than death But there's still time left Stop putting your conscience on cease And bring about some type of peace Not only in your heart, but also in your mind It will benefit all mandkind Then there will be one thing that will never stop And it's the evil that men do
