Enough of all that, let's switch up the format,
And talk some more trash, I'm getting bored fast
Ain't gonna talk gats, just hand-to-hand combat,
Man-to-man full contact, on the floor mat,
Your weak blows are all deflectable,
I'll go toe-to-toe with you, at your own dojo,
Want none of you bozos at my show,
with some silly hoe shakin' her ass up in my video
I didn't kick flows in the cold until my lips froze,
So folk can always tell me how my shit goes
I grab a pencil like it's a pistol
But this way it isn't problem if it hits you

Chorus
You won't see what you want from me,
So don't come to me with "what's it all mean?" cause'
It don't mean a thing
Your lies is all I despise,
Been fightin' guys like you all my life and
They don't mean a thing.

My best shit ain't even on my set list,
Cus half the listeners can't even get this,
So what! you sold records, you ain't respected,
It went too far and tried too hard to be accepted,
This can never be a thing of jealousy,
Just don't be tellin' me to check the melody,
I got the better beats, got the better rhymes,
I made sure I bettered mine ahead of time
So what's up kid? Your big head's been busted,
Don't get disgusted, I'm just servin' justice.

Chorus

So don't attempt, to beg for my pardon,
Cause' I'll keep talkin' til' my arteries harden,
I've takin' losses, told off some bosses,
Sick of all them jobs that all make me nauseous,
It ain't worth it, workin' for your purpose,
For cash I'm hurtin', future's uncertain,
So I keep searching, livin' and learnin',
Earnest to earn everything I'm deservin'
If I can't be on the stage with my band jammin',
I'll be standin' on the street corner panhandlin'!

Chorus 2x

    General CommentJeez, who ever wrote these lyrics are deaf!
    They're REALY wrong, horrific even!
    Here's the correct lyrics, I practically had to re-write 'em!:

    Enough of all that, let’s switch up the format with songs that,
    Make you look far past the forecast
    Ain’t gonna talk gats, just hand-to-hand combat
    Man-to-man full contact on the floor mat
    Your low blows are all deflectable
    I'll go toe-to-toe with you at your own dojo
    Want none of you bozos at my show
    With some silly hoe shakin' her ass up in my video
    I didn’t know, with her itty-bitty clothes,
    Take off your Playdo but you’ll still be pretty though
    I used to kick flows out in the cold until my lips froze
    Folks memorize my poems like they zip codes
    I grab a pen and pencil, like it's a pistol
    And I’m known on a dance floor at a disco

    You won't see what you want from me,
    So don't come to me with what's it all mean ‘cos
    It don't mean a thing
    Your lies is all I despise, been fightin' guys like you all my life and
    They don't mean a thing

    My best shit ain't even on my set list,
    You reckless listeners can't even get this,
    So what you sold records you ain't respected,
    You went too far and tried too hard to be accepted,
    Kids who cried for you now laugh at you
    So be glad that I got signed after you
    ‘Cos if I didn’t then you wouldn’t have half the pull
    But for now we’re putting it down on capitol
    This can never be a thing of jealousy
    Just don't be tellin' me to check the melody
    I got the better beats, got the better rhymes,
    You ain’t heard nuthin’ this fine since Sublime
    So what's up kid? Your ego’s been busted,
    Don't get disgusted, I'm just servin' justice.

    You won't see what you want from me,
    So don't come to me with what's it all mean ‘cos
    It don't mean a thing
    Your lies is all I despise, been fightin' guys like you all my life and
    They don't mean a thing

    My soul bleeds to expand my whole fame
    If I can I’ll be doin’ this until I’m an old man
    So don't attempt, to beg for my pardon,
    ’Cos I'll keep talkin' til' my arteries harden,
    I've takin' losses, told off some bosses,
    Sick of all you thoughts, you all make me nauseous,
    It ain't worth it, workin' for your purpose,
    For cash I'm hurtin', future's uncertain,
    So I keep searching, livin' and learnin',
    Earnest, to earn everything I'm deservin'
    If I can't be on the stage with my band jammin',
    I'll be standin' on the street corner panhandlin'

    You won't see what you want from me,
    So don't come to me with what's it all mean ‘cos
    It don't mean a thing
    Your lies is all I despise, been fightin' guys like you all my life and
    They don't mean a thing

    You won't see what you want from me,
    So don't come to me with what's it all mean ‘cos
    It don't mean a thing
    Your lies is all I despise, been fightin' guys like you all my life and
    They don't mean a thing

    General CommentThis seems to be a pretty generic "I'm gonna blow you away with my rhymes" song, which is kind of ironic seeing how they're talking down the generic rap shit, while rapping generic shit. Either way, it's a decent song to bump to, and something that isn't played 100 times a week.

    General CommentWhoever wrote them wasn't deaf, for some reason there's two versions of the song labeled exactly the same floating around.
