The Flag Was Still There - George Clinton

You do, don't you? Though you do
You do, though, don't you? Yeah, you do
You do, don't you? Though you do
You do, though, don't you? Yeah, you do

So you wanna be me, don't you know, don't you know?
You're never gonna be me
You better watch, where you, when you walk in my footsteps
Step into what you're gonna

Never an unkept step
You wanna keep up with, can't be kept up with
You wanna be up on me, clone me
Not a chance

Clone me, don't play that
Don't even say that
Must be some other way that
You can be you

And I don't have to dis or down another
A brother ain't heavy
Like a light is a beer or a match which you ain't for me
Although you wanna be, you never ever gonna be me

You do, you do, don't, don't you? Yeah, you do
You do, you do, don't you do
You do, you do, don't, don't you? Yeah, you do
Say you do, you do, don't you do?
You do, you do, don't, don't you? Yeah, you do

So you wanna be me, don't you know, don't you know
You never gonna be me
Better watch where you, when you walk in my footsteps
Step into what you gonna

Never an unkept step
You wanna keep up with what can't be kept up with
You wanna be up on me, clone me
Not a chance

Clone me, don't play that
Don't even say that
Must be some other way that
You can be you

And I don't have to dis or down another
A brother ain't heavy
Like a light is a beer or a match which you ain't for me
Although you wanna be me

You do, don't you know, you do
You do, though don't you?
Yeah you do, you know, you do

What, you wanna be me?
I be about the ribbon trophy banner or the cup
Silver, bronze, gold medals got to give 'em up
I'm a winner and you wanna be me

Yeah, you do, don't you know, you do
You do though, don't you?
Yeah, you do

Yeah, you do, don't you know, you do
You do though, don't you?
Yeah, you do

Yeah, you do, don't you know, you do
You do though, don't you?
Yeah, you do

You do, don't you know, you do
You do though, don't you
Yeah, you do, you know, you do

And the flag was still there
Waving on, while we dance
And the flag was still there
Waving on as we dance

And the flag was still there
Waving on while we dance
And the flag was still there

I'm on it, you're all over me like shephard's sheep
It's deep they only wanna talk about one thing
Me, I'm the conversation about what it be
You give up each and every single possession to keep me

This be the reason, me plus the things that I say
Yeah, I got it goin' on
Women every night and day
Yes, yes, yes, is what they wish I'd say

But you know how it goes, they just stay stuck on me
I traded my limo and a mansion for a yacht and a condo sure
I took little Susie to the movie
And she knew just what she had in store

I trade in men's women like credit cards
And they just want to give me more
They trade a zero like you for hero like me
Yeah, totally and for sure

'Cause I'm on it, you're all over me like a shephard's sheep
It's true they only wanna talk about one thing
Me, I'm the conversation about what it be
You give up each and every single possession to keep me

This be the reason me plus the things that I say
Yeah, I got it goin' on
Fellas every night and day
Yes, yes, yes, is what they wish I'd say

But you know how it goes they just stay stuck on me, yeah

And the flag was still there
Waving on while we dance
The flag is still here

And the flag was still there
Waving on while we dance
The flag is still there
