We know you heard this beat many, many times 
But bet you never heard it
With such a vicious rhyme
A rhyme with class and plenty of clout 
To show all you sucker emcees what it's about 
We hear the same stories everywhere we go
Hey it's not new who stole the show
So for all you party people who are in a state of shock 
We're the New Kids on the Block 

Chillin' on the corner the first day we arrive 
From the looks of the hoods we didn't think we'd survive  Second day there we were walking down the street 
With a rhyme in mind and a funky beat
But when we turned into the alley, to our surprise 
We seen a bunch of hoods right before our eyes
They looked us up and down 
Once, twice, and again  There musta been a hundred to a hundred and ten
So I looked over my shoulder right at my friend 
He said "Nice knowing ya but this is the end"
So we battened down the hatches and prepared to fight 
Then all of a sudden I've seen the light 
'Cause the time was right, the time to rock
'Cause everybody knows we're the New Kids on the Block 

We're also devastating when we're on a stage 
The fans start screaming and yelling with rage
With mics in hand and rhymes with clout 
So watch it sucker emcees or we're gonna turn you out
We never talk trash, our rhymes are clean 
Our rhymes are never vague and we say what we mean

So any sucker emcees who wanna battle us
Can you go at least twenty lines without a cuss
'Cause one you start to jam you'll be in a state of shock 
Move the way party people
We're the New Kids on the Block 

Move it sucker emcees or you're gonna feel the wrath 
So don't get caught up in the aftermath 
'Cause we're the funky emcees of the hiphop craze
Our rhymes are never long and it's sure to amaze 
We're the DJ cuttin' records  Straight across face
We'll leave you party people all stuck in a daze
We're fresh new and you know it's true
So let me introduce you to the rest of the crew

J Skee's first he's the master of mix
 There ain't no rhyme that he can't fix
Spinster's next he's the king of the spin
And if you wanna battle you ain't gonna win
Then there's Popeye, but we call him Jord
The kid is so fresh that you'll never be bored 
Next is Jon, his word is true, 
But party people know him as the one GQ 
I'm Dexter P, the whiz of the word
I'm the greatest DJ that you ever heard 
And now you know we're a gang 
And you know we don't play
We're the New Kids on the Block 
And we're here to stay!
