Take roll call there's a 100 or more
Brothers, sisters that I call my tribe
Livin' a high on a FUNK-E vibe
Step in the stride and all think the same
Play differently but all the same game
I don't eat meat 'cause I'm not that mean
Drink a lot of juice so my insides are clean
Do unto others like they do to us
Stay out of the grip of in God we trust
Work by day, ritual by night
The vibe holds the tribe and it keeps it real tight
We give each other weight instead of sayin' hi
And that's the first feelin' when you feel the
Tribe Vibes


The sun set moon rised stars shined
I knew it was time
Tribes got together you heard the jingle jangle
Jingle jangle comin' from all angles
I heard the bongos
Bongo beats from the jungle
A ritual a ritual a ritual
Fire in the middle I chant a little riddle
I saw a man on the side takin' pictures
But some of us never paid him no mind
Click click flash flash boom-bash
Smashed up his camera weakened his stamina
We didn't kill'em we painted him Black
Put him down wit the tribe put'em down wit
the pack
Took his gun and took his rifle
Changed his clothes and told'em to sit still
He tried to run but there was nowhere to hide
So at the end he gave in 'cause he felt the
Tribes Vibes


A bird must fly but soon he lands
Good and bad both clap the same hands
Open doors mean open minds
And these 2 things mean change of times
I watch my back so I'm never held back
I keep in mind that Black is Black
The U-FUNK keeps me goin' under
And fills the mind to make it wonder
Come on in and feel at home
But do not take what is not your own
A man once took and never returned
And it's shame he had to learn
An eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth
Prophet Moses as he speaks the truth
You can run but you never can hide
So hope the Tribe stays on your side
A group of people a Tribe of people
Join together for one cause
Sellin' you and tellin' you
Get up and go for yours!
Tribe Vibes is a level of consciousness
Tribe Vibes you got to get into this
We all are thinkin' on the same plateau
A Tribe Kalled Quest to De La Soul
Tribe Vibes is a level of consciousness
Tribe Vibes you got to look into this
Yes Blastmaster KRS 1 the teacher
Living Color Queen Latifah
Ultramagnetic and all my homies
Grandpa Bambaataa and Sister Monie
