"Crawlspace" as written by Michael Louis Diamond, Adam Horovitz and Adam Nathaniel Yauch....
There's a party going on in here, for real
I got more product than Ron Popeil
So deal with that, troop, we're troopers
The only air time you get is on bloopers
Beastie Boys in the place up in the space
So renovate or evacuate
You better think twice before you start flossing
I been in your bathroom often
Taking punk MCs out, I'm all about
My to-do list today is turn the party out
Getting hot in here no room to breathe
I got my pen in my hand so you best not sleep
No, I'm not Herman Munster or Dr. Spock
I go by the name of the King Adrock
So here's a match, my ass and your face
Listen when I tell you dog
I'm in your crawlspace (crawlspace)

You're in front of my house and you know that's wack
Bite my rhymes with a scanner from Radio Shack
You suckers try to front like you've got the force
But I'll slay like Vader sip you for a first course
Don't even get me started on that intercourse, aah!
Don't step into my zone or even periphery
Can't grab a hold of my style it's too slippery
The way you act a fool son you can't erase
And you're running on your way like steeple chase
You tried to take my title now put it back in place
But now you're busted wearing panties and lace
Stealing my style from that trophy case
But my drive's secure like on an army base
You're sneaking and peeking and trying to give chase
But you ain't never gonna catch me, I'm in your crawlspace (crawlspace)

Schematics, blueprints and microfilm
Calibrate your sonar when I'm in your realm
'Cause you know we're getting scarier and scarier
And this extends beyond the Tri-State Area
Omnipresent and omnipotent
My rhymes are whales and yours are rodents
This means huge compared to very small
You look a little chilly, can I get you a shawl?
'Cause these rhymes are two-hundred proof
They're like anvils lined up on a roof
Waiting to drop on your corny melon
'Cause were not buying what you're selling
First you want to battle then you start to whine
You're looking hungry, it must be snack time
So run home where you feel safe
But don't sleep Cochise
I'm in your crawl space (crawlspace)

    General CommentLet me start off by saying that I got an account just because no one had commented on this amazing song. You people need to comment. The Beastie Boys were the pioneers and inventors of hip-hop. But to the point of the song, the whole idea is it's just a funny song about the three living in a persons crawlspace(for you dimwits, that kind of an attic or secret passage storage area). Basically the trio is haunting this person. It is a great song, even if it doesn't measure up to songs like "No sleep 'til Brooklyn" or "Intergalactic".

    General CommentI agree with Zoarse, but I find it a pretty humourous song. are all the vocals done by the 3? it's a weird voice at the first
    Also the Beastie Boys certainly did not invent hip-hop... they are the first notable white act though, and still the greatest IMO. pioneers indeed, especially in the use of samples

    General Commentyeah this song is awesome. by the way zoarse a crawlspace is under the house and is not a secret passage by any means. its used so you can run pipes and such under the house without having to dig.

    General CommentI agree with all of this. But I think it's like each group's brand of Hip Hop is like a house. The Beasties pioneered so much that the foundation of everyone else's houses are made of the Beasties' materials. Since they're all up in your Crawlspace, they can see all your imperfections & just how sturdy your structure is.
