Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) Lyrics


Lookin' at the devil, grinnin' at his gun
Fingers start shakin', I begin to run
Bullets start chasin', I begin to stop
We begin to wrestle I was on the top

I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin

Stiff all in the collar, fluffy in the face
Chit chat chatter tryin', stuffy in the place
Thank you for the party but I could never stay
Many things is on my mind, words in the way

I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin

Dance to the music
All night long
Everyday people
Sing a simple song
Mama's so happy
Mama start to cry
Papa still singin'
We can make it if we try

I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin

Flamin' eyes of people fear, burnin' into you
Many men are missin' much, hatin' what they do
Youth and truth are makin' love
Dig it for a starter
Dyin' young is hard to take
Sellin' out is harder

Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
I want thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin

Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)
  • Sly Stone wrote this because he was upset that people were not listening to the messages in his songs even though the band was more popular then ever. They were an integrated band and tried to spread the message of racial harmony, but Stone thought that message was getting lost. The lyrics are scathing and mostly directed at Sly himself, but once again, many people lost the message in the powerful groove.
  • Larry Graham played the innovative bass line using a technique where thumped the strings. He learned this technique when he was playing in a duo with his mother, who played the organ. He thumped the strings to make up for a lack of drummer. This bass style became very popular on Funk records for years to come, and was a big influence on artists like Prince and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
  • The title is a funky way of spelling "Thank you for letting me be myself again."
  • The lyrics include references to some of Sly & the Family Stone's earlier hits, including "Dance To The Music" and "Everyday People."
  • Janet Jackson sampled the bass riff from this on her 1990 hit "Rhythm Nation."
  • In 2008, Brooke Hogan, who is the daughter of wrestling star Hulk Hogan, released a version of this song called "Thnku4lettinmebmahself," where she sings about the trappings of fame. Her cover, which strips all Funk from the original, was released ahead of her second album.
