"Chocolate City"
They still call it the White House
Can you dig it, CC?
To each his reach
But I'll be reachin' for ya
Right on.
There's a lot of chocolate cities, around
Somebody told me we got L.A.
But you're the capital, CC
Gainin' on ya!
Gainin' on ya!
Gainin' on ya!
Gainin' on ya!

They say your jivin' game, it can't be changed
You're my piece of the rock
Can you dig it?
Hey, uh, we didn't get our forty acres and a mule
Gainin' on ya
God bless CC and its vanilla suburbs
Gainin' on ya!
Gainin' on ya! (heh!)
Gainin' on ya!
Gainin' on ya!
Gainin' on ya!
Yeah!
Brother black, blood even


Ah, players to ladies
You don't need the bullet when you got the ballot
Chocolate city

Tell 'em to make sure they got their James Brown pass
Reverend Ike, Secretary of the Treasure
Stevie Wonder, Secretary of FINE arts
Are you out there, CC?
It's my piece of the rock and I dig you, CC
Can y'all get to that?
Gainin' on ya!
Gainin' on ya!
Gainin' on ya!
Gainin' on ya!
Be mo' funk, be mo' funk
Can we funk you too
Right on, chocolate city!
Yeah, get deep
Heh
Mmmph, heh
Bad
Just got New York, I'm told
