Fuck A Perm (extended Version)

The Coup


"Dayaam, look at baby's hair over there and shit!

Damn big 1970's Jackson's afro and shit!"


Damn... motherfuckers, always bein like that

Apply three drips, rub softly with your fingertips

And even though you flipped, don't trip cause now you're, hip

And now you slick it, you grease it and you lick it

and you're lookin really wicked but your hair is now called good

You moisturize and texturize and relax-ize and civilize it

but yo I got a 'fro, so a bro's misunderstood

Kitchen in the back, give me dap I got a knapsack

Knick knack Patty's wack, cause in her mind it's firm

that straight is in and out is black

cause black went out with tenement shacks

but beauty is a natural fact so I say, "Fuck a perm!"

Let your hair down if you can't let it down

Lay it down on the seat beside you ain't nobody gonna steal it

Jackson 5 afro (x5)


Excuse but it moves me to just to ask the question where

Did we get this feeble fascination for straight hair?

My fro might scare and make brothers with perms squirm

Or get me into rocks with motherfuckers who got cocks

This nappy shit's on hit, I whip out my pick

I'm just about as freaky as an X-rated flick

Stay off my dick and I'll sit back as you get milked

By PCJ, waves and curls, and lustrous silk

So don't style your shit like Claire do

Cause it's your mind that's whipped, not your hairdo

Nappy haired brothers like myself

Will get a bald head and say...


Fuck it

I wrap a dread around your head and it'll make you choke

Won't hesitate to activate any perm and smoke

Don't call me a nigger I'm as big as see I know the comme
