lyrics

I'm the sucker for the center of a tootsie pop
and I'll keep keepin' on till' I drop in the slop
hop on Pop like a Dr. Suess
check me out with my head in the noose
I produce and I'm a lyricist, I pray that You be hearin' this
get up in the cypher and Yes You be fearin' this
cheerin' this on, along, cheerin' the song
poundin' on my chest like I was King Kong
what's wrong? what You lookin' at?
somethin' smells good now who be cookin' that?
I just want to know 'cause my Flow is ready to go
pop it in the oven and cook it real slow
Giant Steps, my Giant Steps
tip of the tongue and the teeth and lips
I'll unwrap your politics like a box of chocolates
peppermints, sentiments, wait for the apocalypse

Who am I? What is this?
mind your own business
come on over here and help me lift this
my back is bad and I lack forgiveness X4

I'm a sucker for the Southern drawl, the long haul
pick up the telephone and make that call
1-800 I've been wonderin'
where You gonna hide when it starts a thunderin'?
lightening is frightening, but liquor is quicker
dare You find someone with rhymes thicker
fatter make the paint splatter, walking' under ladders
Flow's so hot so my teeth never chatter
pitter patter mixin' up the batter batter swing
you're just like a wedding ring, wanna hear me sing?
Ooooooooooo
Yes, I can do it all, give You all my Love
capture and enthrall ya'll
I kiss the cook, took your rook, you're a crook
take a look, now don't be shook
I'm a sucker for the long legs
and the face that You make while You take cigarette drags
I'm phased, I'm crazed
stuck in this Labyrinth, stuck in a maze
David Bowie once told me to Live Life slowly
but I can't help myself when I'm rippin' up a track
take a step back and give my face a smack
Life is too short, but the days are too long
prolly be dead by the end of this song
can't tell the difference so tell me what's wrong
beatin' on the drum, Yes beatin' on the gong
I'mma go, I'mma go, I'mma go so far
hoppin' from Planet to Planet to Star
let's go for a ride, hop in the car
I don't care who You was, I just care who You are

Who am I? What is this?
mind your own business
come on over here and help me lift this
my back is bad and I lack forgiveness X3
Who am I? What is this?
mind your own business
come on over here and help me lift this
my back is bad and I use forgiveness
