Fresh dressed 'cause I shop at Models
Deep in Brooklyn I rode the Ls
Used to ride the D to beat the morning bell
At Edward R. Morrow out on Avenue L
Now, we be grillin' cheese and flippin' flapjacks
With the diamond stylus, yo, we cutting wax
We're the super elastic bubble plastic
Got ethereal material that's straight up classic
You try to vex, reject but you should respect
Or we'll have JC send you out a FedEx
So don't start to flex up in the discotheque
Or we'll make you extinct Tyrannosaurus Rex

We're gonna rock this motherfucker like three the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker like three the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker like three the hard way
Three the hard way, three the hard way

Your rhyme technique, it is antique
To all my heads, "qu'est-ce-que tu fabriques?"
Que cosa fai? Come sta e?
Ho fato molte telefonate
I said oops, gotcha, clutch like Piazza
Sneak between the sheets so hide the matzoh
Holler back challah bread
Next, we are the crew that put the crew in Cruex
I can see that Def Jam doesn't recognize me
I'm Mike D, the one who put the satin in your panties
Time to count MC's in this place to be
Not five, not four, not two, just three

We're gonna rock this motherfucker like three the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker like three the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker like three the hard way
Three the hard way, three the hard way

Round-house kick the mic out your hand
Drunken mantis, my name brand
If you're slick with the tricks and the sleight of hand
I'm hip to the shit that you're trying to scam
Gnip, Gnop I got zits to pop
I'm an exceptional professional that just don't stop, so
Pack up your bag and your mic and don't wait
E.T. phone home now get the funk out my face
You know we shake'em bake'em then we take'em
Treat MCs like leaves, go out and rake'em
Sell our CDs on Canal before we make'em
Serve you on a platter like steak and bacon

We're gonna rock this motherfucker like three the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker like three the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker like three the hard way
Three the hard way, three the hard way
