[KRS] Good looking, word... DJ Revolution, word up... Let's do this, kid... Here we go!
[Chorus] A good time, a good vibe, and a house with a court Good life, good wife, a little food for thought I need (I need) food, clothes, and a whip with rims I need God in my life I need family and friends (I need) money, power, respect, I need love I need world peace, homeless to eat, no drugs I need every race and creed to be one Every nation, every face and seed to see sun
[KRS] You need to listen to this You need to listen to Kris You need to have peace at least You need spiritual bliss You need a lyrical twist Do you know what a miracle is? Before we begin, you may need a kiss I suggest either one from J to O-one from the lips Either way what I'm saying, yo, is bound to uplift You need checks, you need cash You need intellect You need to be moving fast You need that big respect You need to be rolling in a car Going to a bar that's far Makin' the deal to make you a star You need to ask yourself, now do you know who you are? Where you goin'? How many steps you took so far? You need patience, you need to control your mind If you read and don't act, then you're wasting your time We need better leaders, we need better preachers We need a three-thousand dollar raise to all teachers
[KRS] You need some meditation You need rejuvenation You need assistance right now with your situation You need some contemplation You need a combination –A combination of will power and concentration You need some syncopation With regular relaxation But you can't, 'cause you runnin' and racin' and chasin' You need to slow down, maybe you should speed up One sayin' "lay down," the other's sayin' "leap up" You gotta keep up I suggest you start to speak up A lawyer, a doctor, a rapper—you wanna be what? Whatever it is, you gotta visualize You need to focus for real, and stop livin' them lies The time you givin' them guys You could be workin' upon the goal you hold Yo, you must realize Yo, you need to be wise Yo, you need to be alive, there could be no revenge or deceit in your eyes Rise!
[KRS] Gimme what I need Do it with speed Change the situation around, plant new seeds! I roll with a righteous team of adults Forget the insults We plan to get results You can call us a cult, you can call us a gang But when it comes to Hiphop, no, you cats can't hang When the Gatts go bang And the telephone rang Telling you to come to identify the remains That's when you feel the pain And my name comes as comfort, ease and all stress and strain You need to know the game You need to know the meaning of your own name Reprogram your own brain Ask questions with no shame How you think you gonna master your craft if you don't train? Perfecting your skill, that's the aim Perfect your skill, and you'll always have money and fame C'mon!
What I, uhh, what I need (House on the hill) That's what I need (Cash credit on my bill) That's what I need (All my dreams fulfilled) That's what I need (New whip that I can wheel) What I need (With the chromed out grill) Uh huh, that's what I need (And the girl that can chill) That's what I need (And my spirit all healed) That's what I need (That's what I need) That's what I need (That's what I need) That's what I need (That's what I need) That's what I need (That's what I need) That's what I need That's what I need (That's what I need) (fade)
