Wu-Tang Clan Lyrics

[Intro: kung fu sample from "8 Diagram Pole Fighter"]
Today I'll talk about kindness
Justice, faith and kindness
I want you to listen carefully
Kindness and faith, are the foundation
Without them, we can't become good people
And with justice, we know we can lead a good life
And how can I be a good man then, eh?
Well, first of all, you have to practice honesty
Keep your temper, never lose control of yourself
Keep control...
Be patient, if you learn to do these things, you can master anything

[Chorus: The Persuasions "Gypsy Woman" sample]
Out of nowhere, there came a caravan
This was around a campfire light
A lovely woman in motion
Her hair was as dark as the night

[Method Man]
Cruising on the interstate, just follow while I innovate
Too many try and imitate, medallion like a dinner plate
Front and get ya dinner ate, chinchilla for the winter, wait
I'm trying to bring the "Sexy Back" like Timbaland and Timberlake
Spitting like a calico, kush from a Cali hoe
Tell that joker "tally ho", put shots in that Denali, yo
RZA you know how we go, on them 20's, that's how we roll
And I don't eat berries but eat a Berry like Halle though
The game criminal, my, my chain figaro
My, my dames pigeon-toed, I'm still the same nigga though
Uh, kid rock a fitted low, still got a wicked flow
And I'm like Barry Bonds on anything that RZA throw

[Ghostface Killah]
On anything that RZA throw, Ironman's invisible
I left my chick for cheating on me, now that bitch is miserable
Popping bottles, painting hella Wallo's on my physical
We gon' have a ball, might as well pick a testicle

Purple haze festivals, smoke a nigga like a bowl
Fuck a coma, now the state you laying is a vegetable
You wanna see me? Like you ain't checkable
You like a CD, I burn you and I wrecked a few...


[Interlude: kung fu sample (RZA)]
Only God, has lept into avenged mind
And can, distinguish good, from evil
Hahaha (Aiyo Cappa)

We gotta get more cake together, so we could branch out
Preserve land, get a boat and a ranch house
Call me a dreamer, but I hustle for real
You thought that I fell off but now I'm attacking the field
All in Chicago, grinding, putting it down
Crush blocks of MC's, I ain't playing around
Yo, you heard me on The Bassment, giving it to 'em
Fake dudes hiding they self, but I could see through 'em
Diggler, what? I'm trying to live and raise kids
While you throwing up ya sign, I'm laying 'em down, kid
Plus, I'm back home now, doing my thing
Thirty dollars to Medina just to cop me a ring

[Chorus 2X]

[Outro: kung fu sample]
A good friend, holds his drink
Bad company makes bad wine!
Drinking among friends
Red wine means a good life
A few drinks bring comfort
Two drinks are enough
Money can't buy courage
Riches mean nothing to us
Brilliant, a display of genius

8 Diagrams was awesome

Chris B

Agreed,they tried something different and imo it worked!

Bertnard Miller

Only rza can take a song sampled from the persuaders and turn something so beautiful so dark

Brian Bakker

if 8 Diagrams wasn't so controversial/hated even before it dropped, this song and Wolves would be named among Wu-Tang's best tracks.

Chris B

I hate when people have expectations before it even drops!
“It don’t sound like 36 Chambers so it sucks,actually this album is really ripe!

Brian Bakker

@Jax Kinsey the group was basically falling apart for a while before this dropped; apparently RZA wanted to take the production in a direction not everyone was comfortable with. I think it aged quite well, but this album wasn't that well received when it came out

Jax Kinsey

Brian Bakker how is this album hated?


@R Brooks It's definitely The W for me. Both that album and 8 Diagrams are slept on, but to me The W is just as sharp lyrically and musically as Forever.

This song just never gets old to me. Love the dark vibe and that beat is just nasty. 100% up there with their best and a really cool evolution of their sound.

Justin Coombes

And Weak Spot.
