[Chorus: Ghostface Killah] 
Tell your crew to be easy, niggas run around 
With them fake frowns, sell 'em on eBay 
Get word to the DJ, tell 'em Staten Island's 
In the house, put the record on replay

Get your nose blowned off by the fifth, uh 
You wanna be there, layin' all stiff, uh 
Every time you go uptown, you get jipped, uh 
That's karma, boy, running your lip, uh 
You be fronting like you got a bunch of chicks, uh 
You be at home, nigga, beating your dick, uh 
I'm in the club with the chipped up wrist, uh 
You at the bar, whoadie, drinkin' my piss, uh 
The yellow shit, and the bottle ain't Crys', son 
You turned your muthafuckin' head, nigga, we switched 'em 
You just mad cause I'm hittin' your sister 
You in the other room, huh, you couldn't sleep, uh 
Pop a lotta shit without that liquor, yup 
We mind seat up, so take our picture 
I'm like the boogeyman, nigga, I'll get ya 
Whether now or later, afterlife, or switcher 

[Ghostface Killah]

Y'all niggas clear the fucking floor 
Get the f*ck out the way, come on! 


[Trife Da God (Ghostface Killah) {both}] 
Yo, it's Tone in the building (the teams in the building) 
Niggas wanna beef {what up, what up, what up} 
We packed to the ceiling (we constantly chilling) 
We can cause {we could, we shoot, we slice, we cut} 

[Ghostface Killah] 
Shimmy shimmy ya, shimmy yam, shimmy yea, now 
Yes, my birthday, landed in nay, now 
Peace to Dirt Dog, I'm back like deja vu 
Leave your girl around me, I will bag your boo 
You bitch niggaz better listen up 
Anybody front, paramedics gonna pick 'em up 
They try to save you, sware to God, I hit the nurse up 
Like "Nah, doc, he look better in a herse truck" 
I tried to ignore it, his people saw it 
I ain't the type of dude you go to war with 
My polo gun yo, will crack the floor shit 
When the heat's on, you know I draw it 
I had his number down, Toney just called it 

[Interlude: Ghostface Killah] 
Yo, aiyo, Pete Rock, good looking nigga!

Slap me one of the ratchets, I'm about to go in! Yo! 


[Ghostface Killah] 
Gotta get that cheese, gotta pimp that V 
Gotta burn those leaves, and uh 
Pretty Tone make the girls say please 
Daddy work that d, put it in and be eas' and uh 
So what, come on, now some of y'all people 
Might know me from my wallabies 
Pretty bitches got my number, y'all can dial me 
I stick it up like an iced cake robbery 
And when I'm done, y'all can finger nail file me 
Floss the ill robes since Criminology 
Supreme Clientele, put the world on top of me 
Yo babe, hurry up, with those collard greens 
I represent S.I., ain't as wild as me 
They lousy, I'm phat like a pound of cheeba weed brownies 
Tone got the powder squeeze, don't surround me 
Quick to pick a honey up, shit, the flow's Bounty 
Ya'll can just crown me! 

[Ghostface Killah] 
Yeah, that's right 
I like to thank y'all for coming out tonight 
How y'all like that shit? You know what i mean? 
You really run New York 
This is that Theodore shit, motherfucker!
