Song Meaning
Verse 1
[Common (Erykah Badu)]
Yeah, want to feel the vibe
Want to feel the vibe want to feel the vibe!
Want to what? Yeah
Want to what? Uhh yeah (come on)
Every body c'mon uhh
Yo yo (all night long)
Verse 2
[Common]
During divine hours I use mind power to refine
Flower girls and make em feel like black pearls
Get they minds off acrylic nails and the rap world
It's a lot you can find in the lost black girl
Made signs built in lodges, we be in garages
Discussin' who we boned and who God is
Pro-black like Craig Hodges with my dashikis in the cleaners
I kick it for the Chevy riding head to backstreet leaners
Verse 3
[Erykah Badu (Common)]
All(uh) night (yea yea, what?) (HAH)
All(huh, uh) night (whatcha say now B, what?)
All (yeah, yeah yeah) night (Ow! ow)
(To freak it with the) All (now let me get a piece of this)
(Let me get a piece B) Night
Verse 4
[Common]
Check it, check it
I was born underwater with three dollars and a cocktail
Trying to make the Garden of Eden, out of Auckdale and Rockwell
Locked in this Grid like a Tupac tale
While her-on rock smells make the cops tail
My third eye is my rail, on this Illa-thought
With afro-centric stamps I'm mailing thoughts
To my Gods held in court
I dwell where rebellion's taught, and emotions seldom walk
I try to Walk Like an Egyptian, with Hieroglyphics spelled in chalk
I guess the hustling is the unspoken Gospel
Love that I'm an apostle, feel the holy spirit of Chicago
E Bottom, here's the bottle
I think I, need a cup of a tea, because I'm novel
(Come on baby) Bust it
Verse 5
[Erykah Badu]
I just want to rock you
All night long
All (come on baby)
All night long, all night long,
All night long, on and on and on and on (come on baby)
I just want to rock you (all night long)
All night long (all night long)
All (on and on and on and on)
I (all night long) just want to rock you (all night long)
All night long (all night long)
(What? Yo-yo, yo-yo yo-yo check it, check it)
On and on and on and on
Verse 6
[Common]
A portrait of the Artist, formerly known as Sense
The brain-wash, with my vocal tones I rinses
Opportunity and the beat knocks
Women, give me rhythm like beat box, but it's the year
Of completion, I want a Queen to complete Rash'
Who's flavored from stacks, to Reeboks
Send blessings to the family of Ice Mike
Shit like that, don't help me write right, but I got sight
Like a destruction worker, when it's time to build
Get off like Sam Jack' and it's "Time to Kill"
In perseverance I'm a find a meal, and provoke
My Gramps used to trick off big papers at the Riverboat
It go
Verse 7
[Erykah Badu (Common)]
All, night, all night
All, night, you got it goin' all night
All, night, y'know, y'know it all night
All, night (yea, yeah)
Verse 8
[Erykah Badu]
I just want to rock you (one more time)
All night long, (ebb in feelings)
I just want to rock you (I ain't sleeping)
All night long (all night long)
On and on and on and on
Verse 9
[Common]
Check it
I walk downtown to tempos and never lose the beat
Some people got ignorance confused with bein street
On the, street of desire my body and soul meet
Arguing over thick broads and meals with no meat
Had the cold feet for a second
Mega-niggas in my box throwing suggestions
Had me checking myself and double checking, I popped the "Resurrection"
In the mirror I only heard my reflection
Let me hold mics, while you hold dicks and CD collections
And at MusicLand and Coop's, we can make connections
I meditate with confidence, to not chomp on cents
Outspoken like 30's but yet I guard my lips
Writing niggas with stripes, I hold posture with
Popping shit to fat broads, wearing ostrich
Giving 'em voice mail, tracks are like County
To them I voice-jail, if you believe in Heaven
Why is the choice Hell? Why is this choice Hell?
Why is this choice Hell?
Verse 10
[Erykah Badu]
I just want to rock you
All night long, (keep going)
I just want to rock you (keep going, keep going, keep on)
(And don't you give up) All night long (ah keep on, ah keep on)
(ah keep on, ah keep, ah don't you give up)
I (all night long) jus' want to rock you (all night long)
All night long (if you want it you can have it lay upon my rest)
On and on and on and on (keep it going baby)
(If you want it you can have it lay upon my rest)
I just want to rock you (all night long)
All night log (if you want it you can have it lay upon my rest)
(all night long) On and on and on and on
Verse 11
All (if you want it you can have it lay upon my rest) night
All (and if you want it you can have it lay upon my rest) night
All night
All night
All night
All (don't stop now) night (no no no, no, uh-uh)
All (you bet' not stop) night
All night
Verse 12
Yeah, Common Sense, and Badu
