4 Of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes Most Memorable Lyrics

On this day (April 25), sixteen years ago, we lost an angel.

Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died while on a trip to Honduras in 2002. She was known as the feisty lyricist who took to fame with one of the best R&B groups of all time, TLC.

She redefined what it meant to be “cool” with her colorful, electric fashion trends and unforgettable verses. Today we honor and celebrate Left Eye by remembering four of her most memorable bars below:

No Scrubs (Remix) – TLC

“Satisfy my appetite with something spectacular
Check your vernacular and then I get back to ya
With diamond like precision, insatiable is what I envision
Can’t detect acquisition from your friend’s expedition
Mr. Big Willy if you really wanna know
Ask Chilli, could I be a silly ho”

Ladies Night (Remix)

“Booty shakin with the glass in my left one
Right hand sayin step-son
To me my girls is fancy fly bitches
Too my niggaz straight snitches, to them other chicos
Lady pimp ain’t havin that shit
If you ain’t got the cash to stash, suck my dick hoes
Strictly a bell ringer”

U Know What’s Up – Donell Jones feat. Left Eye

“I’m moving on now, trying to make a change in my ways
Be the best that I can be to last me all of my days
Now we can blaze pathways or just take our time
Better holla if ya hear me cause Left Eye gon’ shine
My eyes don’t lie, see how they glisten when you pass me by
You and I don’t need permission to be unified”

Waterfalls – TLC 

“Clear and blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries
My only bleeding hope
Is for the folk who can’t cope with such an enduring pain
That it keeps them in the pouring rain
Who’s to blame for tooting ‘caine into your own vein”
