[Biz Markie]
Huh?
Yo this is funky!
We gon' get down to the point 
And I'm just gonna say - I'd like to thank my man Rashad 
But we gon' get down like this, and you don't stop
A twink-twinkle, a rock the house 
And my man Diamond Shell, a rock the house 
Can't forget my man Sal, rock the house, and
 Felle Fel, rock the house 
I can't forget, Capital, rock the house 
My man Capital T, will rock the house 
And to my man be	, a rock the house, and
My man Frankie, a rock the house 
I can't forget Doo G, rock the house 
And my man Cool V, a rocks the house why'all
Ah to the beat why'all, you don't stop
I'm Biz Markie with the funky sound
And right about now, here's the countdown 
One.. two.. one, two, three 

[Chorus]
Yo be	 take it from the top
Yo be	 take it from the top (sayyy whaaaat?)
Yo be	 take it from the top
Yo be	 take it from the top (wellllllll)

[Verse One]
Well I demand respect, so everybody salute
And by the way Backspin, is my attribute 
You may or may not, know who I am
But frankly my dear.. I don't give a damn!
You may know me from 'Rockin' With Biz Markie'
Or Shante, when she used to battle Sparky
You might have seen in some videos with other folks
 Sittin on the bench while me and Biz was tellin mother jokes 
The meaning of my name some people may, try to guess 
Yes yes I'm fresh to the flesh, so let me manifest 
I make romance, I'm not a freelance 
I spin records; BITCH I don't breakdance!
I scoop girls around the world that's what be	 does
The name Backspin means that be	 was
Born.. as a creative, cut king
 Supreme poet, inferior to nothing 
Call me the teacher, since I'm the one who taught you
(What's that?) Myyyyyyy DICK! (CAUGHT YOU!)
I'm signin off because my rhyme's complete 
I say peace to Chancellor Avenue and Bergen Street

[Chorus]
Yo Cap take it from the top
Yo Cap take it from the top (sayyy whaaaat?)
Yo Cap take it from the top
Yo Cap take it from the top (wellllllll)

[Verse Two]
Well get a grip and, yeah the Capital's rippin 
More than just a ordinary style, cold flippin  Those that attempt to diss, or try to take this
 Title away what? I think you better forget it
Pit-pat this Jack, get off of the crack black
It's the true fact, your record hit the pillow sack
And now you're wonderin how make a comeback 
But don't make me laugh, your studio's a two-track
Biz hits the bassline, then I rip the real line
 Together it's combined and designed to a master rhyme
A little touch from Cool V himself 
An overnight process then it's ready for the shelves  Perfect shit on wax is made
Then bring it to the radio and let it get played 
There's no joke and only time to get fanatical 
So listen up or pay attention to the Capital 
I'm done with the rhyme for the time, so you can have 'em
 Aiyyo guys, why don't you throw somethin funky at 'em

[Chorus]
Yo Shell take it from the top
Yo Shell take it from the top (sayyy whaaaat?)
Yo Shell take it from the top
Yo Shell take it from the top (wellllllll)

[Verse Three]
Why'all know me, as the Original D
Like to the I say with the A and hey
Bust this, M-O-N-D
I grab the mic and recite rhymes in your left ear
 
It's always def and different  Never somethin from the previous years
I'm quite slim, but rougher than a pair of Timbs 
The Diamond Shell will never trip stagger fall or bend
I don't smoke and never ever have I drank no liquor 
Bein smooth keeps my rhyme style, that much quicker 
So yo hey chief, bust this technique of speak 
I'm feelin sheik and also rather unique
I'm smooth as (?), you can't deny I'm
 Innovative with style, and bound to hit primetime soon
As I tour from Kalamazoo to the moon
Give props to the rapper, the brother dresses Dapper 
Than Dan cause I'm the man I'd like to make ya toes tap
With the, funky type of flow, I'm smooth as a Lambo'-
-Ghini I dream of Jeannie her hands on my jam
So, once but not twice, this brother's precise 
When it comes to snakin girls I get as crooked as loaded dice
 Pullin women can't no man compete 
I nut 'em all from the Great Wall down to Wall Street 
So..

[Chorus]
Yo Fell take it from the top
Yo Fell take it from the top (sayyy whaaaat?)
Yo Fell take it from the top
Yo Fell take it from the top (wellllllll)

[Verse Four]
 Ready for the ride I rip rap rapacious  Crews don't slip you're payin penalty slashes  Clashes crashed, but I crash ass or
 Ravish the mic, and then I'ma pass all
Hard to handle run a gamble like Vegas 
But I never lost the force be runnin wages
Of pages, and pages, biters think I'm cajun  Spice cause I'm so nice and eighteen is my age is
 Rappers crumble when I tackle they crackle I ramshackle 
Don't even know why they waste time on the pack'll
Of nine cause my rhymes do 'em in like rifles  Stress the word, so you know I live trifle 
MC's, metamorphosize to digest 
Days from a faze and my praise is like a rajah 
I reckon, that crews that step over this way
 Think life is a game and they just too pissed to play
Some say, on mics I'm a master 
A snatcher, a catcher, a very well matcher 
But crews better know that I hit like after,
 Effects who's next I wreck from now til then
And then when the then comes, I'ma go hit again 
Like rat-a-tat-tat of the tickedy eatin dick-er whore 
So every move I make I make sure, it's riggydiggyraw 
Biz

[Verse Five]
Mar, kie the original  Everytime I see V, yo I got material 
I was just kickin funky records for you
 Cause I'm down with the rhythm of a, ah one chk two
Singin, on records, I get respected 
It don't matter to me cause you know that I'm connected 
With be	-M-V Biz Mark and Vaughn 
Down to wreck collect and then jet, to the break of dawn
Discombobulate, sentence ain't complete  Unless I go {*beatbox*} AHH AHH AHH UHH {*cough*} on beat
Zip-zop-a-zigga-lah, zagga-zucka-zaii
No matter what I say, I always come out fly
 Because my records get respected as I like jettin 
You will agree it's me, cause you know I'm inventin 
A different kind of rhythm of rhymin state
That's why you like everything I create 
'Pickin' Boogers', 'The Vapors', 'Just a Friend'
That's just some of the things you can comprehend 
So just check it, MC's wreck it
You listen to the Biz Markie, don't disrespect it
Just listen!
