​Take It From The Top

This song is by Smooth and appears on the album Smooth & Legit (1990).

Take it from the top
One two

Take it from the top cause that's where I'm at
I'm climbing the ladder in rap
I'm qualified to be crowned
Take it from the top and not from the ground
Now that the queen is found I move nonstop
Poetically speaking I'm dope
A funking fresh lyric I quote
I'm dramatic, I don't want no static
And all you suckers know Smooth ain't havin' it
I'm real, I'm quite like life
And everything I feel I never feel no strife
Oh yes, I'm so in control
When I speak I just go so bold
I speak clear so that you can hear
I'm the queen of the year

Yo, take it from the top
Yo, take it from the top
Yo, take it from the top
Yo, take it from the top

I'm on a level and I won't go under
'Cause I'm smooth as lightning and thunder
I'm a poetical genius
The things that I think of all unbelievable, so deceivable then they're relievable
Off the gate, down the stretch I come
The head off the bad because I'm never won
A winner and not a beginner

Take it to the top
Yo, take it from the top
Yo, take it from the top
Yo, take it from the top

I'm equipped with power
I devour anyone messing with my mike known as a tower
It's speed what you need to make you bleed
And now I will lead you as my fantasy crew
Take it from the top from me to you
My name, not the first in the alphabet
But I won't let you come before me

Yo, take it from the top
Yo, take it from the top
Yo, take it from the top
Yo, take it from the top
