Funky For You

Hey yo
Dizzy Gillespie plays a sax
Me, myself, I love to max
Redbone booties I'm out to wax
Stick up kids is out to tax
Spring again, and I'm feelin fine
Pass me an ice-cold glass of wine
So I can get mellow
Lay back, and let my girl play the cello
Hello
I hate Jell-O
Let me be me, relax in my teepee
Watch a hardy boy mystery
Greg N-i-c-e
I'm nitro
And I'm hype, so
Don't ever believe
That you can deceive me
See many visions of love and splendor
I'm the real thing, not like a pretender
I rock rhymes over beats on the real tip
Stay real strong and hang on like a vise grip
Use my mind to control all my body parts
Got an early start, plus I'm very smart
Type of man that the girls wanna read about
Indeed I proceed to rock the house without a doubt
Steppin up next, no further ado
Smooth B is gonna make it real funky for you

If you're like me, you've always wanted someone to break down the lyrical genius of Greg Nice's verse on the Nice & Smooth classic "Funky For You". Well your wait is over, I've decided to take on the task myself.

You're welcome.

Hey yo - Kind of an intro, letting people know he's about to spit some ill lyrics.

Dizzy Gillespie plays a sax - Well, no, he doesn't. But does trumpet rhyme with wax or max?

Me, myself, I love to max - Letting people know that Greg Nice enjoys chillin'.

Redbone booties I'm out to wax - He's looking for the fine looking ladies.

Stick up kids is out to tax - The kids on the ave are out to take your money, jewelry, etc. That's what they're about.

Spring again, and I'm feelin fine - Once again it's Spring and Greg's feeling good about that.

Pass me an ice-cold glass of wine - Nothing quenches that Springtime thirst quite like an ice-cold glass of wine.

So I can get mellow - Again, Greg likes chilling, another reminder of that.

Lay back, and let my girl play the cello - What's better when you're relaxing than having your girl play the cello?

Hello - Greg's still there, just making sure no one has tuned out.

I hate Jell-O - Greg doesn't like Jell-O and wants to make sure we're clear on that.

Let me be me, relax in my teepee - Don't try and change Greg, let him have some quiet time in his teepee.

Watch a hardy boy mystery - Who among us doesn't enjoy a good Hardy Boy mystery?

Greg N-i-c-e - In case you've forgotten who you're listening to or are an idiot, Greg spells out his name for you.

I'm nitro - Greg's rhymes are so good that they are like explosives.

And I'm hype, so - He's not only explosive, he's hype as well.

Don't ever believe - Don't think for a second...

That you can deceive me - ...That you can fool Greg.

See many visions of love and splendor - Love and splendor is all around.

I'm the real thing, not like a pretender - Greg's the real deal, no faking here.

I rock rhymes over beats on the real tip - He kicks good raps over solid beats.

Stay real strong and hang on like a vise grip - We don't know what Greg is hanging on to, but due to his strength he's on it like a vise grip.

Use my mind to control all my body parts - Greg has mind control, that's how he's able to move his arms, legs, and other appendages.

Got an early start, plus I'm very smart - Because he's very smart, Greg knows it pays to get an early start on anything you're doing.

Type of man that the girls wanna read about - The ladies are interested in subscribing to Greg's newsletter.

Indeed I proceed to rock the house without a doubt - Greg doesn't think twice about doing his thing on the mic.

Steppin up next, no further ado - Greg's introducing the next person to rock the house.

Smooth B is gonna make it real funky for you - Of course, it's his partner Smooth B.
