Back in the days when I was a teenager
You could find the Abstract listening to hip hop
I said, well daddy don't you know that things go in cycles
Its all expected, things are for the looking
Come on everybody, let's get with the fly modes
Listen to the rhymes, to get a mental picture
Why do I say that, 'cause I gotta speak the truth man
Planted on the ground, the act is so together
The unit, yes, the unit, yes, the unit called the jazz is
You can find it on the rack in your record store(store)
Cause we're ever so glad we made it
Dishing out the plastic, do the dance till you spastic
Listen to the rhymes, 'cause its time to make gravy
All the way to Africa a.k.a. The Motherland (uh)
That's the right hand, Black Man (man)
If I get the credit, then I'll think I deserve it
Get in the zone of positivity, not negativity
If you botch up, what's in that (***) (what?)

Never, ever, ever could we fake moves (come on, come on)
Never, ever, ever could we fake moves (come on, come on)
Never, ever, ever could we fake moves (come on, come on)
Never, ever, ever could we fake moves (come on, come on)
You gotta be a winner all the time
With the dope raps and dope tracks for you for blocks
Musically the Quest, is on the rise
Hip hop continually, about the Zulu
So what could you do in the times which exist
But if your sis is a (*****), brother is a jerk
Whatever it may be into this society
You must be honest and true to the next
Especially if you rhyme, you have to live by the pen
All it is, is the code of the streets
Beats that are hard, beats that are funky
What you gotta do to is know that the Tribe's in this sphere

Never, ever, ever could we fake moves (come on, come on)
We gotta make moves

Never, ever, ever could we fake moves (come on, come on)
We gotta make moves
