Can I Kick It?
A Tribe Called Quest Lyrics


Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Well, I'm gone (go on then)

Can I kick it? To all the people who can Quest like A Tribe does
Before this, did you really know what live was?
Comprehend to the track, for it's why, cuz
Getting measures on the tip of the vibers
Rock and roll to the beat of the funk fuzz
Wipe your feet really good on the rhythm rug
If you feel the urge to freak, do the jitterbug
Come and spread your arms if you really need a hug
Afrocentric living is a big shrug
A life filled with (fun) that's what I love
A lower plateau is what we're above
If you diss us, we won't even think of
Will Nipper the doggy give a big shove?
This rhythm really fits like a snug glove
Like a box of positives is a plus, love
As the Tribe flies high like a dove

(Can I kick it?)
(Can I kick it?)

Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Can I kick it? (yes, you can)
Well, I'm gone (go on then)

Can I kick it? To my Tribe that flows in layers
Right now, Phife is a poem sayer
At times, I'm a studio conveyor
Mr. Dinkins, would you please be my mayor?
You'll be doing us a really big favor
Boy, this track really has a lot of flavor
When it comes to rhythms, Quest is your savior
Follow us for the funky behavior
Make a note on the rhythm we gave ya
Feel free, drop your pants, check your hair
Do you like the garments that we wear?
I instruct you to be the obeyer
A rhythm recipe that you'll savor
Doesn't matter if you're minor or major
Yes, the Tribe of the game, rhythm player
As you inhale like a breath of fresh air

(Can I kick it?)
(Can I kick it?)

I recommended this song to my 12th grade English teacher. I was a super super senior at that point and I was miserable in life. But this dude named Ian, who was my teacher, showed a ton of interest in me, and I in him. Dude loved poetry so much, but he was a Christian and didn’t like music that cursed. So I recommended him this song and he said it was one of the coolest things he’s ever heard. He ended up writing me a heartfelt letter once I graduated.

This is probably really dumb but do you happen to know the last name of the teacher? I also had a English teacher called Ian who happened to play this song.

Here because I was in New York recently and the strangest thing happened when I was on a train coming into a city, and then all of a sudden some cartoon-looking pigeons were singing this song and I looked behind the train and I saw a cartoon cat just chilling, god, New York is so weird

Marc!

@Animated Abe Huh, odd

Animated Abe

@Marc! oh yeah, for some reason, I also saw William Hanna and Joseph Barbera’s name there too, very weird....
