Careful With That Mic Lyrics

Artist: Clutch
Album: Pure Rock Fury

Ha ha, ha ha
Uh huh, uh huh
So tell me, when you took the Practice Scholastic Aptitude Test, did you know the answers or did you guess?
You rely on gimmicks to amuse your fans and act all urban to jack up your soundscan
What's the matter with you?
How come you rhyme monosylabically?
Is atrophy shrinking your entire vocabulary?
Your style's like garbage cans meant to be taken out on a weekly basis
Ever since your first record you've been in a state of suspended animation
You look like Snuffleuffagus and Astropithecus
Me cray, you abacus
But enough about you, let's talk about me and how single-handedly I redefined the science of radio astronomy
Making Nobel prize winners question their notions of reality
Oh, but I digress
You always win at Sorry
I always win at chess
Go get some percasets
Ha ha, ha ha

Chorus:
Careful with that mic weezy
Do you really think it's that easy?
Do you really think it's true?
That up above they can't hear you

Mmm, this is really good ice cream, do you want some of it?
Oh, my bad, I didn't know you were lactose intolerant
Makes you pass gas, frightens all the girls away
Only friends you keep are those you pay
I'm always on the ready for the wack snack attack
I carry sandwiches around in a straight edge style Jansport back pack
Got the gadget Q gave Bond, controls your mind, makes you jump in a pond
Go quack quack and flap your arms
Leaves you confused but completely unharmed
Ha ha, ha ha

Both you and I know the past ten years have been rather intense
I'm ashamed to admit I've been fooled by the seductions of violence
People walking around with ugly auras
At times I'm even tempted to seek the advice of Dr. Laura
But I ignore her
And I take a deep breath and count to ten
Ain't gonna let it get under my skin
Take a deep breath and count to ten
Think of all the nice places that I've been
Like back when I was waging peace against the visigoths
I was tutored in the ancient mysteries by a wisened philosoph
Learned the polyrythyms of celestial time
Waiting for the one to come and get it done
And finish the rhyme
Ha ha

In my view this lyric is directed at the vast percentage of the populace who are foresaking our need to evolve. Capitalists, self agrandising trumpet blowers, self indulgence, narrow minded ignorance, senseless and mindless reactionaries. In a nutshell, conformists and also those that conform to nonconformity. Ha ha. Clutch kick ass!
by nate on 6/10/2008 12:45am
that is like poetry. straight forward music, clutch is the s**t
by Jon on 6/30/2008 6:08pm
Uhhh... this song is about Fred Durst
by The Corrector on 7/14/2008 1:34am
First of all, these lyrics are from a newer version of the song, I dont know why they changed it but they did. Second of all, in the 10th line, it should be "You look like Snuffleupagus and Australopithecus." "You play Sorry, I play Chess. King's pawn, E-3, Checkmate. Go get some percosets."
by Road Rash on 7/18/2008 2:30pm
Fred Durst LMAO! I have to agree. Clutch does kick ass.
by neil on 8/7/2008 1:44pm
The rapcore style is clearly targeted, which is amusing since this track shows more artistry than the usual 'Cluch' material. Is anyone positive that Durst is meant by 'weezy'? Yes, he would fit the shoe but that doesn't mean it was made for him. If this reference is based on the word 'wheeze' it is spelled poorly. Is 'weezy' even accurate? I have reason to doubt that it is because there are many mistakes in this version. 'percasets' should be 'Percocets®', a brand name. 'Sorry' is a brand name. 'Cray' is the name of a line of super computers named for the designer Robert Cray. It's not even capitalized. Pitiful. I guess if no one points out the obvious it means that 'Clutch' fans are too stupid to care. I wouldn't ordinarily think so. Great lyrics should at least be spelled correctly. Great song, I only wish 'Clutch' had done more like it because they manage this style with strength and originality.

Why does everyone have to dissect this wonderful song...who really cares who it about??? JUst sit back & enjoy the jam1!!! CLutch ya'll rule!!!
by PorchMonkey4Life on 11/1/2008 1:06pm
I like Neil. If i had friends like him, i'd be further ahead in life.
by Jon on 12/29/2008 7:34pm
Yer moms an astronomer
by FXSTSENFORCER on 1/2/2009 2:32pm
Who really cares if this song is about Durst? I think it rocks ! Ha ha, ha ha
Uh huh, uh huh
by l-dillon on 1/22/2009 2:01pm
I'm guess that the "mic weezy" comment is directed against people with think that vocals are "easy" compared to playing an instrument.
by Meee. on 2/14/2009 8:34pm
I though the Weezy bit was about Lil Wayne...
by Mirander on 2/19/2009 2:15pm
^same here man, he just tore the beast a new hole, heeheehee ya dig
by sayf on 3/13/2009 11:55am
clutch is so versatile. rap, folk, metal, etc.
by jme on 3/14/2009 9:24am
I'm sure it's not about lil wayne, come on now, this song was released in the album 2001.
by e3 on 3/20/2009 1:43pm
nah this song came out before lil wayne was even really on the scene
by Hells-Own on 3/21/2009 6:17am
You look like Snuffleupagus and Australopithecus

by UR FACE on 8/18/2009 3:45pm
I don't really care about the meaning of the song, I just think his laugh is hot.
by D on 2/11/2010 12:28am
Are you all dumb or something? Weezy is Lil' Wayne's nick name... "Careful with that mic Weezy", he's clearly calling Lil' Wayne out on the fact that he sucks at making music....
by Larz on 3/22/2010 1:47am
its a good song and u people havent got a life

by Dustin on 5/22/2011 5:34am
He's not talking about Fred Durst, he's talking about lil wayne b.k.a. "weezy". I just noticed that "D" already pointed that out above.
by Duder on 5/26/2011 9:40pm
Like jme said there Dustin, this album was out long before lil weezy was on the scene.
by KipWinger on 6/10/2011 12:47pm
Haha, it's about Lil' Wayne? What a bunch of dummies. Ever hear of a thing called a timeline? Really, REALLY stupid people on the internet.
by This. on 6/29/2011 7:46am
This song is clearly making remarks about the music industry at that time, which was heavily endorsed with nu-metal. Clutch was on a label that wanted them to conform to this way but they refused and made the record sound less like the more popular acts, to top it off they put a song which gave out disses to it.
by Bobajango on 9/20/2011 8:29am
Regards timeline, Lil Wayne's first album was out in 1999 ("The Block is Hot"). His second ("Lights Out") came out in 2000. Clutch's "Pure Rock Fury", from which this song is taken was released in 2001. Stupid people on the internet indeed.....:)
by Bronze Dagger on 11/10/2011 4:17am
It's definately a stab at rappers in general... maybe its weezy like: "we see"? You know like American Sleep, but in the liner notes (thats what people used to get when you'd actually buy the record/tape/cd instead of stealing it off the internet!) it said: Americans Leap? Neil's purty durned clever that way... Maybe? Seriously doubt if C! would stoop to 'dissing' any one specificly?
by Jon32 on 11/30/2011 4:24am
I really like that neil talks about God in his music, its encouraging to me that possibly God draws me to music that will have the best impact onme.ive been a fan of clutch since hearing the clutch self title album ,then international speedway league really set it off for me.actually all the albums are great.there are refrences to God and Christ returning specifically in this song.Also pretty sure.tight like that. is about neils relationship w God,Christ,Holyspirit.Of coure youd have to ask him...
by Jon32 on 11/30/2011 4:28am
Do yu really think its true that up above they can't hear you? / waiting for the one to come and get it done.
by rusty on 12/4/2011 6:31pm
Clutch kicks so much a$$ they fuggin rock!-
by meh on 12/5/2011 8:39am
Jon32 you're the typical guy who sees God everywhere. This song have nothing to do with religion.
by Slim Shady on 12/27/2011 6:36am
It's about me
you see
cause I only rhyme
monosyllabically.

Now gimme some Percocets!
by E on 6/9/2013 5:08pm
he isn't talking about lil wayne, this song came out when lil wayne was still in hot boyz and most of you were in diapers.
