U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer

U Can't Touch This

Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em
90s Hip-Hop rap dance old school


U Can't Touch This was MC Hammer's most widely-known single, propelling sales of its album, Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em, which for a time was the best-selling rap album of all time, selling over ten million copies. The song heavily samples Rick James's "Super Freak"; James is accordingly credited as a co-author. The lyrics, written entirely by Hammer, are in the boastful self-promotional style common in hip hop. They describe the rapper as having "toured around the world, from London to the Bay" and as being "magic on the mic," which Hammer says combines with Rick James' "beat that you can't touch" to create the perfect rap song. While some critics, especially in the gangsta rap community, disliked the song, enough people approved of it to secure the Grammy for Best R&B Song and Best Rap Solo Performance, a brand new category at the time, for MC Hammer. In 2008, it was ranked number 26 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop.


MC Hammer (born Stanley Kirk Burrell on March 30, 1962) is an American MC who was most popular during the late 80s and early 90s as he released a string of hits, labeled by critics such as those at Allmusic as "one of the best-selling rappers of all time". Known for his dramatic rise to and fall from fame and fortune (going from top 40 acclaim to bankruptcy) as well as his trademark 'Hammer Pants' and 'Hammerman' cartoon, he became a preacher in the mid-90s, and he now works as a television show host and CEO.

U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer

Can't touch this (x2)
Can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh) (x2)
My-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 hyped feet
It feels good when you know you're down
A superdope homeboy from the Oaktown
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're livin' and you know you can't touch this
Look in my eyes man you can't touch this
You know let me bust the funky lyrics you can't touch this
Fresh new kicks and pants
You got it like that now you know you wanna dance
So move out of your seat
And get a fly girl and catch this beat
While it's rollin' hold on pump a little bit
And let me know it's going on like that like that
Cold on a mission so pull on 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 standing there man you can't touch this
Yo sound the bells school is in sucker you can't touch this
Give me a song or rhythm
Making 'em sweat that's what I'm giving 'em
Now they know when you talk about the Hammer
You talk about a show that's hyped and tight
Singers are sweatin' so pass them a mic
Or a tape to learn what it's gonna take
And now he's gonna burn
The charts legit either work hard
Or you might as well quit
That's word because you know
You can't touch this (oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh) (x2)
Break it down
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh) (x4)
Stop party time
Go with the flow in a spin if you can't move to this
Then you probably are dead
So wave your hands in the air
Bust a few moves run your fingers though your hair
This is it
For winna dance to this then your gonna get better
Move slide your rump, just for a minute lets all do the bump, bump, bump, bump
Yeah, can't touch this
Look man, can't touch this
You better be hyped boy 'cause you know, can't touch this
Ring the bell schools back in, break it down
(Oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh) (x2)
Stop! Party Time!
Everytime you see me the hammers just so tight
I'm doped on the floor, and I'm magic on the mic
Now why will I ever stop doing this, when others making records that just don't hit, I toured around the world from london to de bay, it's hammer-do-hammer-go- hammer- yo-hammer
And the rest can go and play can't touch this
