Send "U Can't Touch This" Ringtone to your Cell

You can't touch this

You can't touch this

You can't touch this

You can't touch this

You can't touch this

My, my, my music hits me so hard

Makes me say "Oh, my Lord"

Thank you for blessing me

With a mind to rhyme and two hype feet

It feels good, when you know you're down

A super dope homeboy from the Oak town

And I'm known as such

And this is a beat, uh, you can't touch

I told you, homeboy

(You can't touch this)

Yeah, that's how we living and you know

(You can't touch this)

Look at my eyes, man

(You can't touch this)

Yo, let me bust the funky lyrics

(You can't touch this)

Fresh new kicks, advance

You gotta like that, now, you know you wanna dance

So move, outta your seat

And get a fly girl and catch this beat

While it's rollin', hold on

Pump a little bit and let 'em know it's goin' on

Like that, like that

Cold on a mission so fall them back

Let 'em know, that you're too much

And this is a beat, uh, you can't touch

Yo, I told you

(You can't touch this)

Why you standin' there, man?

(You can't touch this)

Yo, sound the bell, school is in, sucka

(You can't touch this)

Give me a song or rhythm

Makin' 'em sweat, that's what I'm givin' 'em

Now, they know

You talkin' about the Hammer, you talkin' about a show

That's hype and tight

Singers are sweatin' so pass them a wipe

Or a tape, to learn

What's it gonna take in the nineties to burn

The charts? Legit

Either work hard or you might as well quit

That's word because you know

You can't touch this, you can't touch this

Break it down

Stop, Hammer time

Go with the funk, it is said

If you can't groove to this

Then you probably are dead

So wave your hands in the air

Bust a few moves

Run your fingers through your hair

This is it, for a winner

Dance to this and you're gonna get thinner

Move, slide your rump

Just for a minute let's all do the bump, bump, bump


(You can't touch this)

Look, man

(You can't touch this)

You better get hype, boy

Because you know you can't

(You can't touch this)b

Ring the bell, school's back in

Break it down

Stop, Hammer time

You can't touch this

You can't touch this

You can't touch this

Break it down

Stop, Hammer time

Every time you see me

The Hammer's just so hype

I'm dope on the floor and I'm magic on the mic

Now why would I ever stop doing this?

With others makin' records that just don't hit

I've toured around the world, from London to the Bay

It's "Hammer, go Hammer, MC Hammer, yo, Hammer"

And the rest can go and play

You can't touch this

You can't touch this

You can't touch this

Yeah, you can't touch this

I told you, you can't touch this

Too hype, can't touch this

Get way outta here, you can't touch this



Is he just saying "get on the sance floor and dance?" or what?

Update 2:

What about his words like hype and fly and dope?

Update 3:

And bump?

    Song starts off by saying that he basically thinks his music is the best. He also attributes his good rhymes to god. (he is an avid church goer and i think reverend now?) then goes on to say more about how good his music is. Then to dance to his music as it has several qualities that would make it fun and beneficial to dance to. Then sort of makes a diss to other rappers saying that hes the best. Hes toured to quite a few different places because hes so popular and that they should stop because hes so good.

    Now, hype means very very excited. Fly means very stylish or very cool. And dope means that same except more in the terms of how you feel when you do drugs. Idk where he says bump in the song. (dont feel like listening to it and quickly scanned over the lyrics) but that term comes from the sound and feeling you get when you turn up the bass. It also means to dance to bob your head up and down while listening to the music.

    Hope that clarified things. :)

    No person in their right intellect likes him. Y'all ought to be commited. To say to have a favourite song would imply that one in all his songs was now not as shitty as the relaxation and they're all on the equal stage of down the shitterness.

    The song is about himself and how you can't "touch him" because he's so good. A little bit egocentric if you ask me.
