Well, on the stage I'm known to break fool, huh
But when I'm at the table it's the Futterman's rule (wohoo)
Workin' on my game cause it's time to tax
I'm on a crazy mission to wax Bob Mack, shit

Let it go down like it's supposed to be
Words together like birds in a flock
Ah yes rhymes on time like the hands on a clock
Well I'm an epileptic, a skept-a-cleptic, check it
I'm cutting up the beats from the bear, I clept it
I fucked around and then I lost my tooth ahaa
I'm telling everybody it's the goddamn truth
Like Dennis Coffey, I'm a Scorpio
Like my man Schneider, I'm a super ho (super ho)
Making mountains out of molehills and rockin' some mo' skills
Butt naked beats with butt naked fills

Rub a little oil on my neck and back shit
Now listen baby doll, we outta hit the sack
The original, Young Aboriginal (ohoo)
Continued evolution of an individual, well I'll tell ya
Got so many rhymes ya know my throat is sore
It's 1992 and still no one to vote for
Well, like my words is what I'm seeing through my own eyes
A little vision of the truth in a world of lies
