 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Yeah you know what I'm saying? 
It's real funny you know hat I mean?
I like can't believe this y'know
Jealousy like tried to move on me you know what I'm sayin?
So I said nah I ain't gonna, y'know
make no energetic hyped up yelling, type joint, know what I mean?
I'm just goin' cool back, you know what I'm sayin?
Word up to this slow gangster beat type thing
Check it out yo

Jealousy, I wanna kill him and shoot him
He's a sucker, I'd like to execute him
Recruit him, put him in my school and school him
I said something simple, and I knew that I'd fool him
He's only mediocre, jealousy can't get with me
Hang up your clothes, cause jealousy ain't spent to me
He's just a monkey, riding my back
In fact I kidnap, ram-sack, hijack and back slap the fool,
see my name is Cool J
I play for keeps, the microphone's my tool
I've been holding back long enough I had to bring it
Jealousy is in the house y'all, fellas sing it

Jealous, jealous,
There's no need to be
Jealous, jealous
Be mellow, you know what I'm saying?
Jealous, jealous,
Gangster groove, word up know what I'm saying?
Jealous, Jealous..
Check it out y'all

I'm not lackadaisical or lazy on the microphone
I bring the bacon home so jealousy go home
Or play the wall and pout about the way the prince is rolling
So when they give it up, stand back and start folding
All your jealous show clothes, I think you need to grab a
half-pint of Cisco and hang out with Backstabber
Cause I'ma break down all walls Jealousy built
and then walk tall, like I'm standing on stilts yeah
Jealousy the jam is mean you'll have to rewind it
If you didn't know about him, you must have been blinded
Ask him if I'm right, he'll tell you he sure is
Excuse me for a moment, fellas sing a smooth chorus

Jealous, jealous,
Know what I'm saying? Smooth, word up
Jealous, jealous,
Huh, crazy gangster beat, you know what I'm saying?
It's like a gangster lean
Jealous, jealous,
Yeah yeah you know what I'm saying?
It's Cool J in the house, you know what I'm saying?
Jealous, jealous,
Word up, check it out
Check it, yo

Thank you fellas, the way you sung the chorus was swift
but now it's time to pump lyrics, and shoot the gift
His name is Jealousy fellas see what I mean now turn it out
without a doubt and if it hits you in the heart don't pout
Cause I'ma hit Jealousy and his posse where it hurts a lot
Him and his boys have a habit, they always smirk a lot
and make mean faces, I see em in many places
Scared to face us, they wish they could erase us
or outdo us, can't do damage and never will
The Legend in Leather is clever, man I'ma never chill
Allah take a break from this, yo I love swingin'
Yo E, pop the bubbly, fellas, start singin'

Jealous, Jealous,
Know what I'm sayin?
It's like a crazy gangster groove, you know what I mean?
Jealous, jealous,
Huh-huh, Jealousy ain't got no wins, you know what I'm sayin'?
Jealous, jealous,
Yo but it ain't nothing you know what I'm sayin'?
Cause yo I'm the prince of rap know what I'm sayin'?  Word up
Jealous, jealous,
Yo, it's crazy, I am the one
Bust it

Oh yeah, now I'ma wind it up
It's time to move on and end the Jealousy cut
and head off with a bang that sang and kicked your brain in
I flowed like water now I'm finished explainin
In the spotlight tonight his name was Jealousy
And for some strange reason, it seems fellas be
falling for him, I hope you understood
Stay away from him he ain't no good

You know what I'm saying man yo (that's word yeah I hear that)
Yeah word up (can't hang out man)
Yo it ain't nothing yo ya know what I'm saying
cause we goin' do this (we goin' do it right)
(get involved man) Yo get the champagne man
(just chill)
