Nickel Bags

Reachin' (Ladybug)
the bloom, the swoon, the sugars on your block
the planets land in flesh in the corners of new york
the ghetto, the meadow, the mr. butter flew
the honeybugs dug and lick the honeydew
the sun, the kiss, the funk for a bliss
the lips with the soul and some jazz for your hips
the puff, the buzz, the lids be heavy slick
the mecca get a rush when the beats be very thick
the hands, the feet, the brown baby treat
the fems fumble loose and drink the doodle juice
the step, the flams, the planets goddamn
the peoples get a grip with the tape from a jam
a nickel bag of funk, a nickel bag of funk

(Butterfly)
a nickel bag of funk, a nickel bag of funk

(Ladybug)
a nickel bag of funk, a nickel bag of funk

(Butterfly)
uh huh, a nickel bag of funk, nickel bag of funk

the big, the fat the cool cool cats
the psychedelic sould puts the planets on the map
the sheik, the love, the far out name
the lack of the funks the main why we came
the boogie gets done, the colors won’t run
the funk hits the square, the kids gotta come
the pizza with the pop, the west fourth style
the crew after crew that do the grass hop
the true cool is black, the new school is fat
the beats by the ounce, the funk by the pack
the groove is the fix, the jitterbugs fix
the hangin off the butts with the fat soul kick
that’s my nickel back of funk, a nickel bag of funk

(Doodlebug)
a nickel bag of funk, a nickel bag of funk

(Butterfly)
check me out, i said a nickel bag of funk, a nickel bag of funk
goddamn

(Doodlebug)
oh, a nickel bag of funk, a nickel bag of funk

the wide, the hip, dig it it’s the trip
the loops the scene and the funkifying it
the sounds, the pounds, the stacks, the flairs
the baggy baggy jeans, the knotty knotty hair
the twinkle in the eye, the kids is livin fly
the crew from the sty, the stuff that gets you high
the action, the work for the rhyme
we goes the whole nine?
the papers won’t rot, the vapors get got
the streets get the buzz, the funk up your block
the opium groove, the smacked out soul
the kickin it live, the fat gotta roll
with my nickel bag of funk, a nickel bag of funk
