    Lyrics

    Slicker Than Your Average

    yo craig (yeah)
    there's some real jealous people out there right (uh huh)
    tryin' to say how you're whack (what)
    how your music's soft (what)
    and you ain't got nothin' to say (what)

    well it's album number two right
    so you gotta let 'em know (that's right)
    so do your thing (yeah)
    take your time (yeah)
    speak your mind (listen)

    ever since i first stepped up
    they thought i wasn't good enough, no
    they told me that i'd only last one song
    (that's foolish man - what's it like now? 7 million albums?)
    they said i wasn't from the streets (the streets)
    when i was working behind the scenes
    shit like this don't happen overnight, no no

    while they're tellin' me
    about my imagery

    how i'm so squeaky clean
    whenever i'm on tv

    too much jealousy
    in the industry

    why are you watching me
    when you should just let me be (craig)

    [chorus]
    slicker than your average
    tell me what do you want from me
    slicker than your average
    tell me what do you want from me
    slicker than your average, hey
    tell me what do you want from me
    slicker than your average
    ooh tell me what you want from me

    some people say it's been too long
    that's why i'm here to prove them all wrong
    so why do imitators wanna bite my style?eh?
    (ladies and gentlemen, will the real craig david please stand up?)
    you never had a problem at all
    when i was havin' woman trouble
    somebody fill me in didnt i serve my time?
    remember who gave you rewind

    now they're tellin' me
    that i'm too r'n'b

    how i turned my back on
    the whole uk garage scene

    now they're stressing me
    when I know there's much more to see

    why are you watching me
    when you should just let me be (craig)

    [chorus]

    everywhere that i go (everywhere that i go)
    they keep stopping my flow (they keep stopping my flow)
    everywhere that i go (everywhere that i go)
    they keep stopping my flow
    yo
    check it

    there comes a time (there comes a time)
    when you've gotta take a step to do what's right
    (as much as i like i can't possibly please everyone)

    slicker than your average
    singer serving garage
    busy tryin' to slam me cos i smashed it
    what they don't understand is
    i'm gettin' them established
    by takin' british music to the masses
    now gold diggers go bananas
    the same ones that didn't show me no love
    when i was cashless
    in the day when it really mattered
    when i was pennin' competition no publishin' hits for damage (craig)
    now to go gold to me's a minimal
    i'm involved in the platinum plaques and records sold
    heaven knows that iv battled producers with egos
    and there were those that were told exactly where to go
    somebody please stop these little kids
    that wanna pull bumpers off my 206
    shoutin' outside of the block i used to live
    they don't like my records so why listen to this
    (cos im slicker)

    [chorus]

    everywhere that i go
    (they be tellin' me that i can't rock the show)
    they keep stopping my flow
    (creepin' schemin' and screamin' tryin' to mess up my flow)
    everywhere that i go
    (i wanna tell the world and let them know)
    they keep stopping my flow
    (so tell me what you want from me oh...)
    every way that i go (oh ho oh ho oh yeah)
    they keep stopping my flow
    (don't listen to 'em)
    everywhere that i go
    (dum dum)
    they keep stopping my flow
    (let 'em know, yo, we out)
