You wanna battle swing I bring commanding men like I was king In all your dreams I write the horror flick of Stephen King Cling to false also those papers say ock I got tired of the fat lady so I sing to my own opera Ba-lang-balang-balang-to-de-man-de-rock-cause I love thee If you live by the sword you will be die by the gun Cause all guys tell lies, and more girls commits it I was ordered to Code Red, but now I'm chillin with A Few Good Men Assassination on the kid from the capitol I never play the soap opera but now I'm a General Hospital Condition critical, spirit over who's the physical So if I die, catch me at the funeral I'll fly away, ohh glory With a mic in my hand to a land where only God knows me And the angels write raps on holy paper I said I'm lookin for Jesus, he said take the escalator One flight up, is guaranteed you'll be there My sister'd be there, my mother'd be there So, Mona Lisa, could I get a date on Friday? And if you're busy, I wouldn't mind taking Saturday-ay-ay, ay-ay-ay Round up de posse, Fugee comin around de way
