You Must Learn (remix)

Boogie Down Productions

My man D Nice D Nice is in the booth

Workin harder than ever

D Nice is rockin the sound set tonight

We're not through I wanna drop a new style

Verse One:

It's calm yet wild the style that I speak

Just deal with facts and you will never get weak in the heart

In fact you'll start to illuminate

Knowledge to others in a song let me demonstrate

the force of knowledge knowledge reigned supreme

The ignorant is ripped to smithereens

What do you mean when you say I'm rebellious

Cause I don't accept everything that you're telling us

What are you selling us the creator dwell in us

I sit in your unknown class while you're failing us

I failed your class cause I ain't with your reasoning

You're tryin make me you by seasoning

Up my mind with see Jane run

See John walk in a hardcore New York

Come on now, that's like a chocolate cow

It doesn't exist no way, no how

It seems to me that in a school that's ebony

African history should be pumped up steadily, but it's not

and this has got to stop

See Spot run, run get Spot

Insulting to a Black mentality

A Black way of life or a jet Black family

So I include with one concern, that

You must learn

(Yo Kris) What?

Hold up D, hold up D

We gonna see if they really ready for this

Are y'all having fun tonight?

I said are y'all having fun tonight?

Verse Two:

I believe that if you're teaching history

Deal with straight up facts no mystery

Teach the student what needs to be taught

Cause Black and White kids both take shorts

When one doesn't know about the other ones' culture

Ignorance swoops down like a vulture
