 And everybody on the avenue, I know, when they see us sing

 [Talib]
 Fresher than Tony Rebel's vestibules at African street festivals
 My incredible women is, plentiful
 Over the years I met a few, none of them compare to you
 Preparin you to make food bearable, somethin terrible, let's see:
 you fruitful, beautiful, smart, lovable, huggable
 Doable like art, suitable to be part
 of my life, Coppertone, oh you copyright infringement
 Pay you bidness ten cents, way back in the day
 It's like I'm standin there you know appreciatin God's design
 and then you showed up, it's like you read my mind
 DAMN SHE'S FINE, I think I add the R-E, in front of that
 and see if she D, to get, with a cat like me

 [Talib] I like the, I like the, I like the, I like the
 way you walk, yes, I live the way you move
 [Mos] I like the way you walk, when you walk on by
 I like the way you move, I like the WAY you move
 [Talib] I like the, I like the, I like the, I like the
 way you walk, please, won't you do that dance
 [Mos] I like the way you walk, when you walk on by
 I like the way you move, I like you baby

 [together]
 And everybody on the avenue, I know, when they see us sing
 Everybody on the avenue, I know, when they see us sing, there she is

 [Mos Def]
 Ooooh! Daring me girl, look at you!
 Comin on the block lookin fresh and brand new
 Ooooh! Headwrap cover your hairdo
 Pretty feet peekin through open-toed shoe
 Ooooh! No limit to what I would do
 Make love to you like long interview
 Whooh! Is she for real, me like you
 Good look champion, win the title
 True, many man try invite you
 Shot down lyric each time they cyph you
 Jewel, what man you get all insides you
 Feet they walk way and just that sheik posture
 Ooooh! Can't be a next one like you
 Famous like tapes made by DJ Clue
 I tighten up my game as I approach you
 Yo check her she the nectar the bee get close to

 ...

 [Talib]
 I don't get many compliments, but I am confident
 Used to have a complex about, gettin too complex
 You got me, willin to try, looked me in the eye
 My head is still in the sky, since you walked on by
 I'm feelin high, got my imagination flickerin like hot flames
 it's how it seems, you make me wanna ride the Coltrane to A Love Supreme
 My brown lady, creates environments, for
 happy brown babies, I know it sounds crazy
 but your skin's the inspiration for cocoa butter
 You provoke a brother we should get to know one another
 I discover when I bring you through my people say TRUE, all I can say
 is all praise due I thank you God for a beauty like you

 *Mos Def singing*

 [Talib] I like the, I like the, I like the, I like the
 way you walk, yes, please do that dance
 [Mos] I like the way you walk, when you walk on by
 I like the way you move, I like you baby

 [together]
 And everybody on the avenue, I know, when they see us sing
 Everybody on the avenue, I know, when they see us sing, there she is

 [Mos] There she is, she's a brown skinned lady
 Such a brown skinned lady
 She's a brown skinned lady
 She's a brown skinned lady
 She's a brown skinned lady
 She's a brown skinned lady

 [Talib]
 You know what some people put themselves through
 to look just like you?
 Dark stocking, high heels, lipstick, alla that
 You know what?
 Without makeup you're beautiful
 Whatcha you need to paint the next face for
 We're not dealin with the European standard of beauty tonight
 Turn off the TV and put the magazine away
 In the mirror tell me what you see
 See the evidence of divine presence
 Women of the, Carribean, they got the, golden sun
 I know women on the continent got it
 Nigeria, and Ghana, you know they got it
 Tanzania, Namibia and Mozambique
 and Bothswana, to let it speak
 about latinas, columbianas
 ...
 Tallenas, of course the Brooklyn women walk that walk
 And the Bronx women walk that walk
 Honies from Queens walk that walk, NYC, ATL, LA
 Cincinatti, the Bay Area
