Mantronix Lyrics

Postby dominic_be » Fri Dec 19, 2008 7:06 am

I'm a fan of Mantronix, I tried to find Mantronix lyrics on Internet but with no success, if someone can tell me where I can find lyrics of "Bassline".
I'm not an native english speaker and I'd like to understand this song.
There is somethimg like "Teke coman" ? "Taking comand" ? I really don't know !
Thanks,

Dominique

I'll try....

We're back, we're fresh, and we're here to stay.
So hot, do come out, and fade away.
We're like the ice into water what we're still into sort of
sort of hi-power rap is what I'm on to.
Like the light we're bright always easy and right
Obligated to perform for the ladies delight
well it's a must, so trust, never give you a bust
we'll make you or break you like a ride on the bus
to the city so pretty
well i'm the ?
to put you in the cut
to make you make ? pity
like the crew Mantronix with the real nitty gritty
can make sweet love and bite off your -----! (What? Only MC Tee.)

Because the 'M' is for the man, man
'A' is for the and and
'N' is for the name that represents our band.
We're
taking command,
we're making a stand
in this cold-hearted world, it's hard by plan.
This place called Manhatten, two made it to The Satin, with different types of people, most American and Latin.
Could hit the Tree Top with the sweet street bop
Against the all rhyme style
So don't dare stop that beat
Make you want to freak.
Come on, party people because it's so unique.
Because it's the beat of two, programmed by few, quite subtle by a couple of brothers that's true.
Made with ease.
Designed to tease.
Can make the guys say maybe while the girls cry please.
Cry please!
Don't you let us tease!
Because of you I'll be true.
I'll never tease.

MC Tee is ridiculous.
Nobody sounds like MC Tee.
Only MC Tee knows what MC Tee says.

And that Mantronix ALBUM is dope! The whole thing is dope. They were both in their own world. All Mantronix stuff is some quirky genius drum programming. Plus MC Tee.
Lil Wayne has nothing on Mantronix.
THE MOST EDITEDEST POSTER IN THE WORLD

Thank you for doing 99% on the transcription of MC Tee's notoriously misheard lyrics.
Here are a few corrections to the 2 first verses of BASSLINE you posted.
I had to slow down the song on Adobe Audition to do this.

We're back, we're fresh, and we're here to stay.
So hot, you can melt and fade away.
We're like the ice into water , water still into soda
sort of how about rap? is what I'm posing.
Like the light we're bright always easy and right
Obligated to perform for the ladies delight
well it's a must, so trust, never give you a bust
we'll make it or break it like a ride on the bus
to the city so pretty
well i'm there to get it
to put you in the cut
to make you make beg pity
like the crew Mantronix with the real nitty gritty
can make sweet love and bite off your (edits!)

Because the 'M' is for the man, man 'A' is for the and And 'N' is for the name that represents our band.
We're taking command,
we're making a stand
in this cold-hearted world, it's hard by plan.
This place called Manhattan, two made it to the Satin, with different types of people, most American and Latin.
Could hit the Tree Top with the sweet street bop
And yes the all rhyme style
So don't dare stop that beat
Make you wanna freak.
Come on, party people because it's so unique.
Because it's the beat of two, programmed by few, quite subtle by a couple of brothers that's true.
Made with ease.
Designed to tease.
Can make the guys stay amazed while the girls cry please.Cry please!
Don't you let us tease!
Because to you I'll be true.
I'll never tease.
