      About "Alright Hear This"

      Lyrics for Beastie Boys - "Alright Hear This"

      Because I grab the microphone and I pick it up
      And then I fuck it up and then I turn it in
      And then I turn it out, got the body rockin' sound
      And then you know I'm gonna get down and
      Eat a Scooby snack and take disco nap
      Because I'm shopping at sears, 'cause I don't buy at the gap
      Sending this one out to all the funky inspirations
      Pretty Purdie on the drums with the beat relations
      Well, I'm working on rhymes, they're coming line by line
      Trying to put what I feel into word and rhymes
      I've got a feeling coming on, I've got to make some shit
      A little something stupid, for the twisted and sick
      Because I drive like a maniac on the streets
      And I don't give fuck 'cause I've got the beats
      Got my nuts swingin' from left to right and
      Right to left and I'm death defying

      [Chorus:]

      I spin my fortune on a wheel like Sajak
      Here's the payback keep going strong like since the way back
      I try to be myself but I lose track
      Cause the shit gets complicated now I've got to get back
      As we learn to breed love for one another
      In these times of melding cultures
      I give respect for what's been borrowed and lent
      I know this music comes down from African descent
      Because I don't need a magic potion
      Let me talk about back field in motion
      My girls got cheeks for weeks and I'm happy
      You know I'm a sneak like my old grand pappy
      I gotta give thanks to my man Archie Shepp
      For staying true to inspiration and I don't half step
      So I kick out the jams and tell you who I am
      And I talk to the people like Les McCann

      [Chorus]

      I ask god for a rhyme or two
      A little something for the wise as well as the fool
      A little something to affect a little taste of change
      For the together and the strong as well as the deranged
      I'll do you right like bobby knight
      And then I'm rapping on the mic to the Broadway light
      Stomp my hands, I clap my feet and
      I'm bugging off Yusef Lateef
      I got a match to my ass and I'm a keep it lit
      I need to get some cash, call my accountant Britt
      I'm rushing around town taking care of my functions
      Always got one more thing so forget about function
      We create this world and the problems go on
      Create our lives and the things that go wrong
      So to the deaf, the blind, look around and listen
      To what it is you want and for what you're wishing

      [Chorus]
