Pad & Pen

A Tribe Called Quest

featuring D-Life


This is the master D-Life

as we set it off with my mans A Tribe Called Quest

And uhh, we got to do it like this baby

We got to do it like that baby

We got the good shit not the bullshit, yaknahmean? Ha hah

We bout to count it down, we bout to count it off

It goes a-one, two, three, ahh!


Malik we gettin back into that shit again

And when we rhyme, brothers need to break they pens, uh-oh

It's The Love Movement never ends

The rap game'll never be the same again

(Phife Dawg where you at baby?) We came again

[Phife Dawg]

Here I come again, you feelin fine?

The Dawg is like a overflowin rhyme from mind

Usually mess with shorties whose a 8 or 9

Shorty bump around to the bass-line


F keeps a burner on the waist-line

That cat's trickin off, I ain't wastin mine

You feel the uniqueness, you seekin this?

And when we do it, we be freakin this

[Phife Dawg]

Don't even front, you know you feelin this

My shade is borderin around licorice (licorice)

Enjoyin this tune, glad you playin it

(Aiyyo Phife what's the hook?)

Here we sayin it, SAYIN IT, SAYIN IT

Chorus: with D-Life

My pad and my pen (ah ah, you didn't go there)

The beat and the blend (say word, you didn't go there)

The party won't end (you know, we got to be there)

Just keep your ?, buildin with friends, yo

* repeat 2X w/ variations *


We're down for life with one destiny

It seems that the devil keeps testin me

Got the illest part of the recipe

Yo tell your homegirl to stop stressin me (stop it)

Undressin me is the part you really like

Brothers hold the cracks now they holdin mics

The cusses you get, ? steady rights

For writers, we did that shit at Mid-night, a-ah-aight-aight

[Phife Dawg]

I love it when my honeydip be slobbin me

Don't take it personal it's jus
