Songtekst

(Oh yeah)
(Oh yeah)
(Oh yeah)

(Oh, oh yeah)
(Oh, oh yeah)

Do the right thing, not talking about a black or white thing
'Cause that will cause conflict and make this shit a jig
But your definition of legit and illegitimate
Is confusin' now but may have one mistake

So make things clearer, 'cause in about a year or two
What you do is take a look up in the mirror
And what you see is the image of hate
That you shed upon the alters of sisters and the brothers

Now in my opinion you need someone to teach
The whole world is acting like a giant out of reach
I asked co-man fit the world, he used to do for fun
He said he learned to shoot a double double 'fore the age of 21

Crime, man, abortion, all kinds of mind distortion
This is very important but just a little portion of
What you can do, that's a clue and it's true, yo
The one apprentice wanna make your life better and do the right thing

(Do the right thing) You got to do the right thing
(Do the right thing) Do the right thing
(Do the right thing) You got to do the right thing
(Do the right thing)

Brothers are stealin' and dealin' and big wheelin'
And to a younger mind that stuff is appealin'
So what do they do, they gather up a crew
Go out and steal and rob 'stead of gettin' a job

Now your mother tried to bring you up better than that
The same way she loves you you love her right back

But now you think you're grown and you argue a lot
Over money you got from dealin' stuff on the block

Now you're not the only one in the world that has problems
Keep your head straight and you can surely solve them
Be a fly guy and reach sky high
And like the Jeffersons you get a piece of the pie

I hope you take heed to the message I brought
In other words: the lesson I taught
Loretta kick (??) a lyric but I won't sing
And the FBI Crew wants you, you and me to do the right thing

(Do the right thing) You got to do the right thing
(Do the right thing) Do the right thing
(Do the right thing) You got to do the right thing
(Do the right thing) Right about now we're gonna start using our own words now

Gonna be counted off as we go on something like this
One, two, three

And Manhattan, you got to do the right thing
Brooklyn, you got to do the right thing
And the Bronx you got to do the right thing

Bruise Island, you got to do the right thing
Long Island, you got to do the right thing
Staten Island, you got to do the right thing
All the West Coast, you got to do the right thing
Everybody, everybody in the world, you got to do the right thing

Do the right thing (Check this out)
(Oh yeah)
Do the right thing
(Oh yeah)
Do the right thing

(Do the right thing) You got to do the right thing
(Do the right thing) Do the right thing
(Do the right thing) You got to do the right thing
(Do the right thing)

The Redhead One sendin' out a message on a positive note
Try to make you all see the light when we're supposed to be in the dark
Y'know, this is goin' out to my mother, to my brother
To the rest of the FBI tribe

And you know what I'm sayin'
Everybody else in the world
I just want you all to do one thing
And that's the right thing

(Do the right thing) You got to do the right thing
(Do the right thing) Do the right thing
(Do the right thing) You got to do the right thing
(Do the right thing)

(Do the right thing) You got to do the right thing
