Well it's the M - I - crooked letter, ain't no one better
Cause I'm cooler than a polar bear's toenails
Bend, corner's like I was a curve, I struck a nerve
I heard it's not where you're from but where you pay rent
You got me bent like elbows, amongst other things, but I'm not worried
So go get your ****in' shine box, and your sack of nickles
Daddy fat sacks, B-I-G B-O-I
And I try, to warn you not to test but you don't listen

And wave 'em like you just don't care
Then everybody let me hear you say O-Yea-yer
Now throw your hands in the air
And if you like fish and grits and all that pimp ****

To the female gender, ain't nothin better
If not I'll wait, because the future of the world depends on
Or will it know to be the hard regardless of the skintone
Or will it give a **** about what others say and get gone
Like Sounds of Blackness when I practice what a preach ain't no lie
Now breaker, breaker 10-4 can I get some reply?

And wave 'em like you just don't care
Then everybody let me hear you say O-Yea-yer
Now throw your hands in the air
And if you like fish and grits and all that pimp ****

Thinking about the second album at the Dungeon shooting pool
Honey I'm home but I'm not married
And now I'm sitting at the end of the month I just made it
And like the daddy's wife you making the coffee
So back the hell up off me
Softly as if I played piano in the dark
The world's a stage and everybody's got to play their part
The job of speaking through us we be so sincere with this here
Put my glock away I got a stronger weapon

And wave 'em like you just don't care
Then everybody let me hear you say O-Yea-yer
Now throw your hands in the air
And if you like fish and grits and all that pimp ****
