Have you ever worn the mask one-two one-two
Put the mask upon the face just to make the next day
Jokers be stalking me
My posse in the Brooklyn wear the mask
Stick up kids doing boogie woogie wear the mask

Punching my clock. Now I'm wanted by the manager
"How would you like a quarter raise, move up the register"
Come back and tell me who's baggin my fries
Hell no sirree, wrong M.C
And you see whatcha thought ya saw but never seen
Pulled my 22 pistol whipped him in his face
Eyes pitch red but da beat bop my head
I got kidnapped they took me to D.C.

Put the mask up on the face just to make the next day
I walk the streets and camouflage my identity
My crew in the Queens wear the mask
Yeah everbody wear the mask but how long will it last
I thought he was the wonder, and I was stunned by his lips
Shook my hips to the bass line, this joker grabbed my waistline
I backed up off him then caught him with five finger to his face
This kids invading my space
So many fronts in his mouth, I thought he was the Golden Child
I haven't seeen him since fifteen, when he got booked for doing scams
He ran up quick behind me asking, "Yo what happened to my ***** Steve?"
I chuckled knucklehead I seen him yesterday he's cool
Probably some intellectual
Then his old lady tried to play me waved her hands up in my face

Put the mask upon me face just to make the next day
I walk the street and camouflage my identity
My crew on the Isle wear the mask
Yeah everbody wear the mask but how long will it last?
3 A.M. in the morning on the Boulevard
Me and Godfather and a 67 Dodge
Searching for my car that was stolen from Scotland Yard
As I rung the bell someone tapped me on my back
He said, "I got a itchin' on my trigger
See cops got two faces like two laces on my Reeboks
Well did you shoot him? Naw kid I didn't have the balls

Put the mask pon me face just to make the next day
Brothers be schemin', and should be teamin'
*****es be teasin', and money skeezin'
I walk the streets and camouflage my identity
My crew in Jamaica wear the mask
Yeah everybody wear the mask but how long will it last?Have you ever worn the mask one-two one-two
Put the mask upon the face just to make the next day
Jokers be stalking me
My posse in the Brooklyn wear the mask
Stick up kids doing boogie woogie wear the mask

Punching my clock. Now I'm wanted by the manager
"How would you like a quarter raise, move up the register"
Come back and tell me who's baggin my fries
Hell no sirree, wrong M.C
And you see whatcha thought ya saw but never seen
Pulled my 22 pistol whipped him in his face
Eyes pitch red but da beat bop my head
I got kidnapped they took me to D.C.

Put the mask up on the face just to make the next day
I walk the streets and camouflage my identity
My crew in the Queens wear the mask
Yeah everbody wear the mask but how long will it last
I thought he was the wonder, and I was stunned by his lips
Shook my hips to the bass line, this joker grabbed my waistline
I backed up off him then caught him with five finger to his face
