So tell me
When you took the Practice Scholastic Aptitude Test did you know the answers or did you
guess?
You rely on gimmicks to amuse your fans and act all urban to jack up your soundscan,
what's the matter with you?
How come you rhyme monosyllabically, is atrophy shrinking your entire vocabulary?
Your style's like garbage cans, meant to be taken out on a weekly basis
Ever since your first record you've been in a state of suspended animation
You look like Snuffalupagous and australopithecus, me, cray, you, abacus
But enough about you, let's talk about me and how single-handedly I redefined the
science of radio astronomy
Making Noble Prize winners question their notions of reality
Oh but I digress, you play Sorry and I play chess
King's pawn to B3, checkmate, go get some percasets
Uh ha ha, ha ha
Careful with that mic Weezie
Do you really think it's that easy?
Mmm, this is really good ice cream, you want some of it?
Oh my bad, I didn't know you were lactose intolerant
Makes you pass gas, frightens all the girls away
The only friends you keep are those you pay
Always on the ready for the whack snack attack I carry sandwiches around in a
straight-edge style Jansport backpack
Got the gadget Q gave Bond, control your mind, make you jump in a pond
Quack quack, flap your arms leave you confused but completely unharmed
Uh ha ha, ha ha
Careful with that mic Weezie
Do you really think it's that easy?
Do you really think it's true?
That up above they can't hear you
Uh ha ha, ha ha
Now look here
Both you and I know the past ten years have been rather intense
I'm ashamed to admit that I've been fooled by the seductions of violence
People walkin around with ugly auras and at times I'm even tempted to seek the advice of
Dr. Laura
But I ignore her
And I take a deep breath and count to ten
Ain't gonna let it get under my skin
Take a deep breath and count to ten
Think of all the nice places that I have been
Like back when I was waging peace against the visigoths I was tutored in the ancient
mysteries by a wisened philosoph
Learned the polyrhythm of celestial time, and wait for the one to come and get it done,
to finish the rhyme
Uh ha ha
Careful with that mic Weezie
Do you really think it's that easy?
Do you really think it's true?
That up above they can't hear you
Uh ha ha, ha ha
Mmm hmm, mmm hmm
Uh ha ha, ha ha
Mmm hmm
Uh ha ha, ha ha
Mmm hmm, mmm hmm
Uh ha ha, ha ha
