Yeah, yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah, uh-huh 



Chorus: 



you for me (U for me) 

And me for you (Me for you) 

One for all (One for all) 

That's the way we do (That's the way we do) 



you for me (U for me) 

And me for you (That's right) 

One for all (One for all) 

That's the way we do (That's the way we do) 



Verse One: Grand Puba 



Yeah I keep truer, sidestep MC's like manure 

Play the corner like a sewer, keep it milky like Kahlua 

Ya heard my shit be off the optimately optimate 

Once a nigga begin to spit, get ya high like trees and shit 

That's it, then I push it uptown to the Bush 

Yeah I moosh, watch me hook it off like a Nike swoosh 

My conglomerates reign dominance with prominence 

Son, a lot of niggas thought I was done but I only just begun 

Can y'all feel me because we feel y'all can 

Smoke the tree right off the tims, long live Brand Nubian 

My rhyme flow be imported, got so many different styles my shit is assorted 

Never distorted, want to catch my flow, better camcord it 

I'm a take you there, believe me yo 

See I'm here like welfare, got so many niggas livin my nickname should be 

"Air" 

You for me, me for you, that's how we do, 99-to-two-thou Brand Nu 



Chorus: 



you for me (Uhuh) 

Me for you (Me for you) 

One for all (One for all now) 

That's the way we do (That's just the way we do) 



you for me (That's you for me) 

Me for you (Uhuh) 

One for all (One for all) 

That's the way we do (That's just the way we do) 



Verse Two: Lord Jamar 



Yeah, we engage the enemy, arrange the assembly 

Flip through the pages of time, do you remember me? 

through the ages I existed only as a memory 

Some of me exists inside your biochemistry 

I be the slave that always misbehave, runnin for days 

The North Star help me find my way 

I ain't got no time to play, I'm trying to get away 

Bloodhounds tryin to track me down, tryin to bring me back to town 

If they catch me they just might ax me 

Won't arraign me, they probably hang me 

But it's freedom or death, exert speed til my last breath 

Can't half step, Whitey's on my trail 

I'm ridin on the underground rail, hidin from the face that's pale 

Me and Harriet, Swing Low Sweet Chariot and take me home 

They want to break my bones and take me where they keep the tombstones 



Chorus: 



you for me (That's you for me) 

Me for you (and that's me for you) 

One for all (One for all baby) 

That's the way we do (That's just the way that we do) 



you for me (Brand Nu, Brand Nu) 

Me for you (Me for you, huh) 

One for all (One for all) 

That's the way we do (That's the way we do) 



Verse Three: Sadat X 



Let me find out, y'all tryin to dine out without me there 

It can't happen, why is ya still yappin? 

I'm known by college grads and then by anyone who all knighted 

Why you so excited? You scarin chicks and grabbin em 

Talkin bout cabbin off the bat 

Relax nigga, you here with me, we don't get down like that 

I keep 13 with one in the ass, you Catholic mass 

Nobody wants to die and be a mural on the wall 

I'm the apostle y'all, I'm like Samuel L.L. 

But I'll swing by you like Eve with a gun in my sleeve 

Weed spots is like my need spots, let freedom ring 

Sadat X Luther King 

I want to 1000 from the housing, don't know how much the club allows in 

but I told the bouncer, I said "Yo that's not my fault 

there's no need for assault", push and hit the asphalt 

Now I'm a peaceful man, would you do for me, or is it...... 



Chorus: 



you for me (Is it in like that?) 

Me for you (Fo' sho', here we go) 

One for all (I said it's one for all) 

That's the way we do (That's the way that we do) 



you for me (U for me, you for me y'all) 

Me for you (Fo' sho', I'm for you, dogg) 

One for all (One for all) 

That's the way we do (That's the way we do) 



you for me (Brand Nubian huh) 

Me for you ('98-'99) 

One for all (Touche, here we go) 

That's the way we do (And that's the way, that's the way, that's the way) 



you for me (Yeah sho' nuff) 

Me for you (Uhuh, keep it goin) 

One for all (One for all baby) 

That's the way we do (That's the way we do, that's the way we do)
