Feel the beat of the drum
Move like ya really wanna be number 1
You can beat out the comp
Run like ya really wanna be at the top
Stop adrenaline rush 'cause
You have been identified as a hustla'
Topic of the discussion but beat it like a percussion
And chuck the deuce up and tell 'em it's just love (oop-oop)
Damn diggity-dog let them bums stay mad 'cause we livin' it up (oop-opp)
Shelltops is on and I'm popping like, I'm popping like, I'm popping some corn

And now, I don't wanna take you if we fall down, don't get upset
And now, is just the beginning
And we'll figure it out somehow
Right now, masquerade
Master the merry go round
Right now, masquerade
Master the merry go round
Right now, it's something you create
It's never ever too late
It's never ever too late
Right now, okay to make a mistake
Yeah baby this is your day
It's time to masquerade

Face it, face it, full of bass in ya face
Hit the finish line first place in the race, yes
King Kong on ya chest
Running and I'm coming to baton to ya left, yup
You can be who you want
Be who you is never be what you aren't
Never, ever fold under pressure
Desperate times get desperate measures (oop-oop)
Damn diggity-dog let them bums stay mad 'cause we livin' it up (oop-oop)
Shelltops is on, and I'm popping like, I'm popping like, I'm popping some corn

And now, I don't wanna take you if we fall down, don't get upset
And now, is just the beginning
And we'll figure it out somehow
Right now, masquerade
Master the merry go round
Right now, masquerade
Master the merry go round
Right now, it's something you create
It's never ever too late
It's never ever too late
Right now, okay to make a mistake
Yeah baby this is your day
It's time to masquerade

I'ma call your afro cause you never ball
Fuck all ya bitches and I'll never call
Next day, suck my testa', I ain't playing games, bitch but checkmate
Breaker 1-9, breaker 1-9, breaker 1-9
All my party people lemme see you one time (time)

Right now, masquerade
Master the merry go round
Right now, masquerade
Master the merry go round
Right now, it's something you create
It's never ever too late
It's never ever too late
Right now, okay to make a mistake
Yeah baby this is your day
It's time to masquerade, right now
