Public Enemy – She Watch Channel Zero?! Lyrics
[Intro: Flavor Flav]
You're blind, baby
You're blind from the facts on who you are
Cause you're watching that garbage
[Verse 1: Chuck D]
The woman makes the men all pause
And if you got a woman she might make you forget yours
There's a five letter word to describe her character
But her brains being washed by an actor
And every real man that tries to approach
Come the closer he comes, he gets dissed like a roach
I don't think I can handle she goes channel to channel
Cold looking for that hero, she watch channel zero
She watch, she watch, she watch, she watch [Repeat x8]
Yo baby, you got to cut that garbage off
Yo! I wanna watch the game
What is you doing?
Hey yo, let me tell you a little something
I'mma take all your soaps and then I'm gonna hang 'em on a rope
You know what I'm saying?
Cause that garbage you're watching don't make no sense
Hey yo let me tell you a little something baby
I'mma take your set and I'mma throw it out the window, G!
[Verse 2: Chuck D]
2, 7, 5, 4, 8 she watched she said
All added up to zero, and nothing in her head
She turns and turns and she hopes the soaps
Are for real, she learns that it ain't true, nope
But she won't survive and rather die in a lie
Fall a fool for some dude on a tube
Yo baby, you think I'm joking? Do I look like I'm joking?
I ain't joking, word up, baby
Yo, cut that garbage off now
Yo, I got the Tyson fight on, you know what I'm saying?
Yo, so you can't be coming here and stagnating like that, you know what I'm saying?
Yo, we getting ready to watch the Super Bowl
We got a black quarterback so step back!
[Verse 3: Chuck D]
Trouble vision for a sister cause I know she don't know, I quote
Her brain's been trained by a 24 inch remote
Revolution a solution for all of our children
But her children don't mean as much as the show, I mean
Watch her worship the screen and fiend
For a TV ad, and it just makes me mad
Yo baby, can't you see that's nonsense you watching?
Look, don't nobody look like that, nobody even live that, you know what I'm saying?
You watching garbage, nothing but garbage, straight up garbage
Yo, why don't you just back up from the TV, read a book or something
Read about yourself, learn your culture, you know what I'm saying?
Yo let me tell you a little something
