Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Play Intro

---> Play Riff 1 over:

I'm taking it to the bridge and there's a different country

I'm bringing you a people I know deep down are funky

Oh yeah we dap we got the juice it's on tap

Never take the time to rewind all that weak crap

Here take it it's yours the gift is calling

The sunshine be falling our way first every morning

I'm a magician you see I'm christened with condition

Held over from a future world I've come to you so listen

---> Play Riff 2 over:

There's a place out in deep space

Where all the brothers chant and dance and rant

And shave their heads like Buddha

I'm a fly guy you know I'm smoother

Of course no remorse is left for all those loser crews

I do not care what you do I always screw up

But when I do it's nothing like you I wish you grew up

You're saying anything like promise to get clean

Won't kick half dead you're fucked up in the head

---> Play Riff 3 over:

[Just] get him out of here, get him out of here

Get him out of here, he's making me sick

We push a sucker out, with much force and much clout

Didn't want to do it, that's not what we're about

But we got to have a limit, how low can you get it

Seems about time to change the subject and sing about

The wise eyed girl that makes me feel good

And never do I leave misunderstood

---> Play Chorus over:

Damn, you know I feel good true

Got a choice of what I'm gonna do it's like this

That, up (herb) is where it's at

Mix a melody with some back chat (mad cat), tell 'em again

Damn, I know you feel good too

You got a choice of what you're going to do it's like this

That, up is where it's at

Mix a melody with some back chat

---> Play Riff 1 over:

I'm rollin' slow no particular place to go nothing's changed

The more things stay the same the more it doesn't matter

To a latter day St. Bernard acting hard

But I throw down like a crazy retard

But what could make a man

Wanna walk around the schoolyard with his tool hard

What could make the switch to call a woman a bitch

It probably downed when you couldn't get a date to prom

And you were stuck with Beavis

---> Play Riff 2 over:

Let's leave us on a note of positivity, I'm saying this for

Levity, but if I leave it brief I call it brevity

I said I see the people rocking, which means there's no

Stopping the flow

And you can just tell 'em that you know

---> Play Riff 3 over:

Every night yeah we turnin' up, and comin' off live

Like a final 311 battle breaking idols

On the one you never heard before

You know the hard-core rockin' pumpin' the dance floor

Leave ya feet sore looking for the Micatin

You know the mic is deadly in the mood we in

Certified not fakin', cool like a Jamaican

Every time the enemy hear us they will be shakin'

---> Play Chorus over:

Damn, you know I feel good true

Got a choice of what I'm gonna do it's like this

That, up is where it's at

Mix a melody with some back chat, tell 'em again

Damn, I know you feel good too

You got a choice of what you're going to do it's like this

That, up is where it's at

Mix a melody with some back chat
