What we gonna do right here is go back (go back)
Way back (way back)- back into time (into time)

[Chorus]
I can feel it coming in the air tonight
Oh Lord
And I've been waiting for this moment
For all my life
Oh Lord, Oh Lord

[Lil' Kim]
Keep stealing the shit
Killing the rhyme
The Queen stay poppin' the wine and cockin' the nine
For those who think they stoppin' my doe

want to copy my show, wha
I'm switchin' my flow, can't take it no mo'
Oh you think I'm playin' around
I'm layin ya down

Album drop, new millennium shuttin' it down
Better off givin' it up, I'm rippin' it up
Spendin' money, livin' it up, not giving a f*ck

Hotter than toast, Runnin' the coast
Makin' niggas catch the Holy Ghost
I'm realer than most, wha
The trendsetter, the Brooklyn repper

You know the routine
Smoke you like a ciggarette-are
You've been out in a bit
why'all still talkin' shit

Ain't that a bitch?
What part of the game was this?

[Lil' Kim singing]
Millions I'm holdin'
Drop tops rollin'
Diamonds on my neck
And Bentley ballin'
Me and my niggas gettin' high all day
Straight to the top, 'cause we on our way

[Lil' Kim rapping]
Comin' for why'all, comin' for why'all
That's right I got something for why'all
Something for why'all, wha
God bless me, look at all I've been through
It's my time, I can feel it, can't you?

[Chorus]

Can you feel it coming in the air tonight?
Oh Lord, Oh Lord

Well I remember..

[Lil' Kim]
... back when it used to be the eighties
Said the world gon' end in 2000 (that's crazy)
I'm the only thing to fear
For the new year

New year, and if BIG was here (woo)
Get the fans, we the ones to talk
We die real on the streets
So watch where you walk

And you can find me, usually
Talkin' dirty to a cat thugged out
Or even kinda nerdy
Lil' Kim, Lil' Cease and JM

Taking over like a plague on a town
All why'all can do is pray and watch it go down
Like when the ball drop
My fam's all I got, we keep it gangsta

Comin' for why'all, comin' for why'all
That's right I got something for why'all
Something for why'all, wha
God bless me, look at all I've been through
It's my time, I can feel it, can't you?

[Phil Collins]
Well, if you told me, you were drowning
I would not a lend a hand
I've seen your face before my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am

Well I was there and I saw what you did
Saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin
I know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies

[Phil Collins]
I can feel it coming in the air tonight
Oh Lord
And I've been waiting for this moment
For all my life
Oh Lord, Oh Lord

I can feel it coming in the air tonight
Oh Lord
And I've been waiting for this moment
All my life
Oh Lord, Oh Lord
