Five Man Army
Massive Attack Lyrics


Trendy Wendy's you know what I mean
Hangin' around with girl who's rolling up her jeans
She watches her street crack 'cause she's no dummy
Through rocking the microphone and she's calling me honey
Says I know what I want don't move with thugs
Well house parties hip hop and smoking drugs
And whoever's been the boss she's down with 'em
She's always on time 'cause the girl got rhythm
To avoid a complication i'll give some information
About a certain occasion under an illustration
'Cause when I host my show-a I avoid the girl called lola
Who's more pu-pu-public than the drink they call it coca cola
I'm just practice posing face is shaded in black
Is dominating as my color the massive attack
Right now i hit it kick it flow smooth hit middle wicket

I take a small step now it's a giant stride
People say I'm loud why should I hide
Only had a small taste so what a waste
I quietly observe though it's not my space
Bottom end's heavy you know we're never even
People call me Tricky for particular reason
I've got you see and I've got to let you know
See we're rockin' in your area rock beneath your balcony
My baby just cares for me well that's funny
Her touch tickles especially on my tummy

Now who's got the microphone
Now who's honey

A turbo turbo and charge with a charge
I be daddy g wild bunch crew at large
Don't call a officer just call me a sarge
Mashing up the country and also abroad
Plan to go to America when I get a visa card

But gettin' a visa card nowadays isn't hard

So keep your ears glued listen to every chord
Tokyo city's one place that we toured
Four technique plus two mixer board
Sharper than a Wilkinson razor sword

When I was a child I played subbuteo on
My table then I graduate to studio one
My nom de plume got my pseudo no
And around my neck you know I wear the sony budokan
Indigo blues you got me in my own shoes
The people dancing in the shape
For what they make they can't lose
Yes waxing lyrical but this time it's not satirical
It's kinda spherical so jam me in a
This is the miracle of the dubplate dub selection

So whether you're black white or half-caste in your complection

Yes pull out your phono plug and tuck you in your phony
It's started by Marconi resumed by Sony
A summary a while is a history and only
But massive attack enorme explosione

Get away with your guns now
We don't want it
Get away with your guns now
We don't like it
Eternal love eternal love
Money money money
Root of all evil
Money money money
Root of all evil

"getting a visa card nowadays isn't hard"
oh how times have changed

Gordon Cuthbertson

@Akiva777 I don't think it was sarcasm about difficulty getting a credit card. This song was released in the early days of the credit boom, which eventually resulted in the crash of 2008. Banks were giving credit to people as fast as they could in anticipation of being paid back many times over. Till one day the bubble burst. It may have been sarcasm about the banks motives or knowing that getting credit was easy paying it off was the problem. Since the banks didn't want people to pay it off but to keep making payments for decades and therefore bigger profits for banks

Akiva777

I think it was meant to be sarcastic.
