From now on it's not MC Lyte
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC

Tackling, anyone, who tries to stop me from fulfilling 
The ultimate, the ultimate goal
Suckers takin' up room on the microphone
I do not favor crowds, move over, stop stalkin' me
I feel like I'm drownin' and fans are just stompin' me
Bigfoot! Should we buck the uncivilized
But I'm so tame I don't, mean to criticize
But why you sweatin' we don't, go together
Especially if I'm muggy in the rainy kind of weather

Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC
Listen up everybody, listen up everybody
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC

Competition I take it as good for the soul
Pull back the microphone, let my arms unfold
Release all the anger, all the aggravation
Convert it into words just sorta like a conversation
I am the talker, you're just the listener
Talk and I'll ignore you, is it that offensive to you?
The problem is you can't understand
The logic in my rap you can't comprehend so you
Merely step aside, what all, call the weak
But you'll also step aside when I'm, comin' down the street
You'll give me lots of room, to whistle and walk
And then everything is silent just in case I wanna talk, but I
I never do, small talk I like to hear
Other girls rap and you say that I'm wack
Comin' from a female that is totally dedicated
Every rhyme I say you ought to appreciate it
And if not I'll tell you like I told my neighbor Dana Betty
What? You ain't ready
For a fly female MC you just ain't ready

Listen up everybody, listen up everybody
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC

Competition I take it as food for the mind
Past experience from the future, is the best kind
Of advice that you could ever receive from another
Whether it's a stranger or your night time lover
Sorry silly rabbits, Trix are for kids
Brings back memories of the things that I did
Played jokes on suckers, just for fun
But now I'm much older, those days are done
Everything is business, forget about games you see 'cause 
Once I'm finished, you're gonna know my name is Lyte and in Brooklyn
Brooklyn's where I'm chillin'
Better known as the MC Villain
No I'm not good but I'm not bad either
Come into your life it can't get no liver

Listen up everybody, listen up everybody
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC

So now, competition is taken out of my vocabulary
I don't vary, I bury
Steppin' up is like diggin' your grave
So sucker MCs you ought to save
All the mess you be talkin', meanwhile hawkin'
When I'm on the stage, audience watchin'
Suckers in the corners just keep on clockin'
The way I hold the mic, the stance I use
The rhymes I recite and the beat I choose
But it's not your fault because you don't know better
You see green I wear you go buy the same sweater
You look me up and down sight the jeans name brand
You go to Macy's and for hours you stand
Online just to buy what you saw Lyte wearin'
Don't try to lie homegirl I caught you starin' 'cause yo
The beat is dope and the rhymes are kickin'
I'm the chickenhawk and you are the chicken

Listen up everybody, listen up everybody
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC
Listen up everybody, listen up everybody
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC
Listen up everybody, listen up, listen up
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC
Listen up everybody, listen up everybody
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC
Listen up everybody, listen up, listen up
Listen up, everybody, it's Lyte Thee MC
Listen up every, listen up everybody it's Lyte Thee
Listen up, listen up, listen up, listen up everybody
Listen up, listen
