      About "Express Yourself"

      Lyrics for N.W.A. - "Express Yourself"

      [Dr. Dre]
      Yo man there's a lot of brothers out there
      Flaking and perpetrating but scared to kick reality

      [Ice Cube]
      Man, you been doing all this dope producing
      You ain't had a chance to show 'em what time it is

      [Dr. Dre]
      So what you want me to do?
      (Express yourself!)

      [Dr. Dre]
      I'm expressing with my full capabilities
      And now I'm living in correctional facilities
      Cause some don't agree with how I do this
      I get straight and meditate like a Buddhist
      I'm dropping flavor, my behavior is hereditary
      But my technique is very necessary
      Blame it on Ice Cube, because he said it gets funky
      When you got a subject and a predicate
      Add it on a dope beat, and it'll make you think
      Some suckers just tickle me pink, to my stomach
      Cause they don't flow like this one
      You know what? I won't hesitate to diss one
      Or two before I'm through, so don't try to sing this
      Some drop science, while I'm dropping English
      Even if Yella, makes it a-capella
      I still express, yo, I don't smoke weed or sess
      Cause it's known to give a brother brain damage
      And brain damage on the mic don't manage, nothing
      But making a sucker and you equal
      Don't be another sequel (Express yourself!)

      (Express yourself!)
      (Go on and do it)
      (Express yourself!)
      (Express yourself!)
      (Go on and do it)

      [Dr. Dre]
      Now, getting back to the PG
      That's program, and it's easy
      Dre is back, new jacks are made hollow
      Expressing ain't their subject because they like to follow
      The words, the style, the trend; the records I spin
      Again and again and again, yo, you're on the other end
      Watch a brother blend dope rhymes, with no help
      There's no fessing or guessing while I'm expressing myself
      It's crazy to see people be
      What society wants them to be, but not me
      Ruthless, is the way to go, they know
      Others say rhymes which fail to be original
      Or they kill where the hip-hop starts
      Forget about the ghetto, and rap for the pop charts
      Some musicians cuss at home
      But scared to use profanity when upon the microphone
      Yeah, they want reality, but you will hear none
      They'd rather exaggerate a little fiction
      Some say no to drugs, and take a stand
      But after the show, they go looking for the "Dopeman"
      Or they ban my group from the radio
      Hear N.W.A. and say, "Hell no!"
      But you know it ain't all about wealth
      As long as you make a note to (Express yourself!)

      (Express yourself!)
      (Go on and do it)
      (Express yourself!)
      (Express yourself!)
      (Go on and do it)

      [Dr. Dre]
      (Express yourself!) from the heart
      Cause if you want to start to move up the chart
      Then expression is a big part of it
      You ain't efficient when you flow, you ain't swift
      Movin like a tortoise, full of rigor mortis
      There's a little bit more to show
      I got rhymes in my mind, embedded like an embryo
      Or a lesson, all of 'em expression
      And if you start fessing, I got a Smith and Wessun for ya
      I might ignore your record because it has no bottom
      I get loose in the summer winter spring and autumn
      It's Dre on the mic, getting physical
      Doin' the job, N.W.A is the lynch mob!
      Yes I'ma climb, but you know you need this
      And the knowledge is growing just like a fetus
      Or a tumor, but here is the rumor
      Dre is in the neighborhood and he's up to no good
      When I start expressing myself, Yella, slam it
      Cause if I stay funky like this I'm doing damage
      Or I'ma be too hyped, and need a straight jacket
      I got knowledge, and other suckers lack it
      So, when you see Dre, a DJ on the mic
      Ask what it's like, it's like we're getting hyped tonight
      Cause if I strike, it ain't for your good health
      But I won't strike if you just (Express yourself!)

      (Express yourself!)
      (Go on and do it)
      (Express yourself!)
      (Express yourself!)
      (Go on and do it)
      (Express yourself!)
      (Go on and do it)
      (Go on and do it)
