"Lick It" is a song recorded by American dance music group 20 Fingers featuring singer Roula. It was released in February 1995 as the second single from their album On the Attack and More. It also appears on 20 Fingers' self-titled second studio album.

Background[edit]

The song achieved success in many European countries. It was a top ten hit in France, Austria, Belgium (Wallonia) and Germany. However, its sales were lower than 20 Fingers' previous hit "Short Dick Man". The song, which was credited to Roula as vocalist, contains explicit lyrics that refer to cunnilingus.
