It's the real thing that makes your body swing 
Open your ears for the techno rap sing 
Back on the track, no my name ain't Jack 
You try to criticize, so now step back 
I traveled the world all round and round 
Make a lot of heads go upside down 
If it ain't rough, no, it ain't no thing 
Just Let yourself go cause you're rolling with the real thing 
Searchin' for the real thing 
Do this! Do this! Come on, come on. Do this! Do this! 
We're going for the real thing 
Go! Go! Let yourself go, let yourself go! 
Go! Go! Let yourself go, let yourself go! 
No more waiting, anticipating 
We're searching for the real thing 
No more waiting, anticipating 
We're going for the real thing 
I select the thoughts and need from people's minds 
Combine it with my own style, I ain't blind 
One of a kind make sure I'll find 
A way to gain and win cause it's the real thing 
The music flows, I lay these rhymes 
Time for some action, cause it's about time 
Pay close attention, are you out, are you in? 
'Cause if you roll, you're rolling with the real thing 
And we're not gonna stop 
Until we reach the highest top 
We don't need, to stop 
We'll keep on searchin' till we drop
