What do you know?
What do you know?
What do you know?

The birds and the bees now are wise to the lies
(What do you know?)
So they took to the trees and took to the skies
(What do you know?)
On top of the chain and safe from the rain
(What do you know?)
Whatcha' know about the ways of the underside?
(What do you know?)

Bought a hot shot gat from a north end guinea
(What do you know?)
Cuz they're hip to the bull and hip to the lies
(What do you know?)
Ante up with your ass cuz you ain't got a penny
(What do you know?)
Whatcha' know about the ways on the underside?
(What do you know?)

Bought a hot shot gat from a north end guinea
(What do you know?)
Ante up with your ass cuz you ain't got a penny
(What do you know?)
Droppin' bombs from above, cut you all down to size
(What do you know?)
Cuz they're hip to the bull and they're hip to the lies
(What do you know?)

Yeah, the streets rose in two perfect waves in the night
(What do you know?)
Crashes on my left, and one on my right
(What do you know?)
It's all fire and brimstone baby, so let's go outside
(What do you know?)
It's all fire and brimstone baby, I got my brand new pistol baby
(What do you know?)

Bought a hot shot gat from a north end guinea
(What do you know?)
Ante up with your ass cuz you ain't got a penny
(What do you know?)
Droppin' bombs from above, cut you all down to size
(What do you know?)
Cuz they're hip to the bull and they're hip to the lies
And they're hip to the lies

Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Right in front of your eyes, it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Now answer the lies, it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Whatcha' know about the ways on the underside?

What do you know?

Bought a hot shot gat from a north end guinea
(What do you know?)
Now answer the lies, it's time to get up
Ante up with your ass cuz you ain't got a penny
(What do you know?)
Time to get up
Droppin' bombs from above, cut you all down to size
Now answer the lies, it's time to get up
(What do you know?)
Cuz they're hip to the bull and they're hip to the lies
And they're hip to the lies

Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Now answer the lies, it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Right in front of your eyes, it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Now answer the lies, it's time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies

What do you know?
What do you know?
What do you know?
What do you know?

    General CommentGat is used on the streets by gangs at this present time so it doesn't date the story as being back in mob ganster days.
