    Lyrics

    Well here's how it started
    Heard you on the radio talkin' 'bout rap
    Sayin' all that crap about how we sample
    Given examples

    Think we'll let you get away with that?
    You criticize our method of how we make records
    You said, it wasn't art, so now we're gonna rip you apart
    Stop, check it out my man

    This is the music of a hip-hop band
    Jazz, well you can call it that
    But this jazz retains a new format
    Point, where you misjudged us, speculated, created a fuss

    You've made the same mistake politicians have
    Talkin' all that jazz

    Talk, well I heard talk is cheap
    But like beauty, talk is just skin deep
    And when you lie and you talk a lot
    People tell you to step off a lot

    You see, you misunderstood, a sample is a tactic
    A portion of my method, a tool
    In fact it's only of importance when I make it a priority
    And what we sample of, is the majority

    But you are a minority, in terms of thought
    Narrow minded and poorly taught
    About hip-hop, playin' all the silly games
    You erase my music, so no one can use it

    Step on us and we'll step on you
    Can't have your cake and eat it too
    Talkin' all that jazz

    Lies, that's when you hide the truth
    It's when you talk more jazz than proof
    And when you lie and address something you don't know

    It's so whack that it's bound to show
    When you lie about me and the band we get angry
    We'll bite our pen, start writin' again
    And the things we write are always true

    Suckers, get a grip, now we talkin' 'bout you
    Seems to me that you have a problem
    So we can see what we can do to solve them
    Think rap is a fad? You must be mad
    Cause we're so bad we get respect you never had

    Tell the truth, James Brown was old
    'Til Eric and Rakim came out with 'I Got Soul'
    Rap brings back old are 'n' be
    And if we would not, people could've forgot
    We wanna make this perfectly clear

    We're talented and strong and have no fear
    Of those who choose to judge but lack pizazz
    Talkin' all that jazz

    Now we're not tryin' to be a boss to you
    We just wanna get across to you
    That if you're talkin' jazz, the situation is a no-win
    You might even get hurt, my friend

    Stetsasonic, the hip-hop band
    Like Sly and the Family Stone, we will stand
    Up for the music we live and play and for the song we sing today
    For now, let us set the record straight
    And later on we'll have an informal and a formal debate

    But it's important you remember, though
    What you reap is what you sew
    Talkin' all that jazz

    Talkin' all that jazz
    Talkin' all that jazz
