about

Turfbuilders (Demo),’ is an unreleased track from Los Angeles legends People Under The Stairs. This one just oozes all things good and funky.

lyrics

We step on stage
From state to state
And measure all weight with a
crate slingin’
Hustlers juggling twelves
Smuggling this real shit
Snoopy might sniff it
And customs they might check it
Then punks open it up
Suitcase be full of records
Visa stamp, he’s a champ
Let him through to interlude
At hotels tell them bellboys we rule

The people gon raise the roof like amish folk
Then let the sucka burn like the traumatize smoke
Me and the big loc billy goatin’ the local dames
Where they not only know the name
But happy we came

So here it is
Rockin’ live
Just me and my buddies
Controlling the kids through music like Teletubbies
Best under the sun
And relatively lovely
Brixton dub me
Hard hitting rugby
Rhythms be getting em bubbly the clubs be spinnin’
So funked up they get home and can’t sleep on it
You gonna throw it up when you see the P on it
Honestly, the tonic and gin is my Huckelberry Fin
A lot of adventures I don’t know where to begin, mannnnnn
What was I sayin while that P Funk be playing
Man you’re rocking with the Jazz, The Thes The Double K and

With the love in the town
Pump me up
Yo we covering ground
Now the P be pumping it up
By tearing it down
And you love this sound
(x2)

Bust it out, straighten up
Gettin’ busy like a high-top fade
I rock the get better for the letter the P
The go getter of fresh shit
Double and the Peruvian
The ones you should mess with
We mess with funky loops
And go together like toast and orange juice
Made America hang loose
Broke up the gang truce
Stole the spruce goose and got fly on em
Columbian neck tie on em
Pumpin like a Newport in rhymes
I wrote em in color
And every letter was the difference
They say I’m spliference in your perriference
But I stay out of sight
Put a citation on your microphone
So leave Mike alone
When he doing his thang
And hearing the big bang
Hear Parliament sang
If ya hear any noise, its just me and the boys
Just getting drunk and doing what we known for
From Fort Collins to Sac Town back down to San Dog
With your man and dem, bought a can with them
Back for the first time
Equivalent to crime in the streets
Out of control like Wild teenagers with pagers

Swearing in the name of your savior
I get funky like Deuteronomy
No one be ever harmin’ me
MC’s be tauntin me
But I strike down from the heavens of dopeness
You can quote this
Tell em I meant every word and verb
Smash your kids with adjectives
No additives, those are pro now, it’s like oh wow

With the love in the town
Pump me up
Yo we covering ground
Now the P be pumping up
By tearing it down
You love this sound
(x2)
