"Fu-Gee-La" as written by and Wyclef/michel Jean....
We used to be number 10
Now we're permanent one
In the battle lost my finger, mic became my arm
Pistol nozzle hits your nasal, blood becomes lukewarm
Tell the woman be easy naah squeeze the charmin
Test wyclef, see death flesh get scorned.
Beat you so bad make you feel like you ain't wanna be born
And tell your friends stay the hell out of my lawn
Chicken george became dead george stealin' chickens from my farm
Damn, another dead pigeon
If your mafiosos then I'm bringin' on haitian sicilians
Nobody's shootin', my body's made of hand grenade
Girl bled to death while she was tongue-kissing a razor blade
That sounds sick maybe one eday I'll write a horror
Blackula comes to the ghetto, jacks an acura
Stevie wonder sees crack babies be-coming enemies of their own families
What's going on?
Armageddon come you know we soon done
Gun by my side just in case I gotta rump
A boy on the side of babylon, trying to front like he's down with
Mount zion

Ooh la la la
It's the way that we rock when we're doing our thang
Ooh la la la
It's the natural la that the refugees bring
Oooh la la la la la la lalala la laaah
Sweet thing

Yeah in saloons we drink boone's and battle goons till high noon
Bust rap toons on flat spoons, take no shorts like poon poon's
See hoochies pop coochies, for gucci's and lucci
Find me in my mitsubishi, eatin' sushi, bumpin' fugees
Hey hey hey
Try to take the crew and we don't play play
Say say say
Like paul mccartney, not hardly
Odd-ly enough
I can see right through your bluff
Niggas huff and they puff but they can't handle us, we bust
Cause we fortified, I could never hide, seen "cooley high"
Cried when cochise died
I'm twisted, black-listed by some other negroes
Don't remove my polos on the first episode
Ha ha ha ha, you shouldn't diss refugees, and
Ha ha ha ha, you whole sound set's bootie, and
Ha ha ha ha, you have to respect jersey, cause I'm superfly when
I'm super-high on the fu-gee-la

Ooh la la la
It's the way that we rock when we're doing our thang
Ooh la la la
It's the natural la that the refugees bring
Oooh la la la la la la lalala la laaah
Sweet thing

I sit 90 degrees underneath palm trees
Smokin' beadies as I burn my calories
Brooklyn roof tops become brooklyn tee-pees
Who that be, enemies, wanna see the death of me
From hawaii to hawthorne, I run marathons, like
Buju banton, I'm a true champion, like
Farakkhan reads his daily qu'ran it's a phenomenon
Lyrics fast like ramadan

What's goin' on
Armageddon come you know we soon done
Gun by my side just in case I gotta rump
A boy on the side of babylon, trying to front like he's down with
Mount zion
What's goin' on
Armageddon come you know we soon done
Gun by my side just in case I gotta rump
A boy on the side of babylon, trying to front like he's down with
Mount zion

Ooh la la la
It's the way that we rock when we're doing our thang
Ooh la la la
It's the natural la that the refugees bring
Ooh la la la la la la lalala la laaah, sweet thing
Ooh la la la
It's the way that we rock when we're doing our thang
Ooh la la la
It's the natural la that the refugees bring
Ooh la la la la la la lalala la laaah, sweet thing

    there's a lot to be interpreted in this song, but i'm not gonna be the one to think about it (though that is the purpose of this forum).

    My InterpretationThis is a pretty incredible track, reminds of nas's one mic.

    We used to be number 10
    Now we're permanent one, (This seems like a straight up reference to how well they used to be doing compared to now.)

    In the battle lost my finger, Mic became my arm (This to me is more to do with actions not being effective so they resort to words instead.)

    If your mafiosos then I'm bringin' on Haitian Sicilians (I'm pretty sure the idea behind this is that Haitian Sicilians are really tight with their family, tighter than the mafioso perhaps?)

    Nobody's shootin', my body's made of hand grenade (Good line, sums up the singer as someone who has a large amount of influence on everyone, has authority and is feared maybe.)

    Blackula comes to the ghetto, jacks an ACURA (This is about the high amount of stereotyping against black people committing crimes like stealing honda acuras I reckon)

    A boy on the side of Babylon, trying to front like he's down with Mount Zion.( In the Rastafari movement, "Zion" stands for a Utopian place of unity, peace and freedom, as opposed to "Babylon", the oppressing and exploiting system of the western world and a place of evil.)

    Brooklyn roof tops become Brooklyn tee-pees(Maybe a reference to the level of smoking of drugs etc at the time?)

    Yeah rest of it seems pretty self explanatory. :)
