Hei, hei, hei
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

The fullest attempt in my intent is to let you know what is important
My existence is militant 'cause my content bangs like it's potent
Distant to the pollutant, never hesitant, always consistent
I back it up, yeah I'm very blatant
Don't try to copy this 'cause I patent
Running on the streets causing TENTsion
Like Running through, running through, running running through the streets
Running, running through, running through, running running through the streets
Running, running through, running through, running running through the streets
Running on the streets causing TENTsion, like atTENTion!

I'm touched to see my life from a distance
For instance, my friends say I act tense
I'm a refugee from a yellow brick tent
Past TENT present TENT and future TENT our battle is a long walk
Like a sentence and its intent breaches its instinct
We go the distance to presidents
Throw atTENTion about my tent

Things fall on my head like we're mutant
So don't drop that ball on that paTENT
We're aliens but we're not mutant
We tent after tent, a camp tent
There's thirty six chambers in my Wu tent
We slang tent in
Bend a tent
While you're dancing in your LoubouTENT
We be making tent, out ya curTENT
