Babies babble on, they lookin for excuses
Game for the buzzer who kicked it to the losers
Lame as a brain, could be, golly gee
If you see a shrink he'll charge you a fee
If you see me ya see the fee is nothing
(Fee will be for patience) all that's no fronting
What is a party if it doesn't really rock?
What is a poet? All balls, no ****
What is a war if it doesn't have a general?
What's channel nine if it doesn't have Arsenio?
What is life if you don't have fun?
What is a what if you ain't got a gun?
What's Ali without Shaheed Muhammad?
Nothing. (Calpekur) makes you vomit
What is a Quest if the players ain't willing?
