Hey, gotta, gotta payback! (the big payback)
I'm mad (the big payback)
Got to get back!
Need some get back!
Pay Back! (the big payback)
That's it!
I'm mad!

You get down with my girlfriend, that ain't right!
Hollerin', cussin', you want to fight
Payback is a thing you gotta see, hey
Brother do any damn thing to me

Sold me out, for chicken change (yes you did!)
Told me that they, they had it all arranged
You had me down, and that's a fact
Now you punk, You gotta get ready
For the big payback! (the big payback!)
That's where I land, the big payback (the big payback!)

I can do wheelin', I can do dealin' (yes you can!)
But I don't do no damn squealin'
I can dig rappin', I'm ready! I can dig scrappin'
But I can't dig that backstabbin' (oh no!)

The brother getting ready, that's a fact!
Get ready you mother, for the big payback (the big payback!)
Let me hit 'em, hit 'em Ren, hit 'em!
Hey, hey, woo!
Lord, Lord

Took my money, you got my honey
Don't want me to see what you doing to me
I could get back
I gotta deal with you
I gotta deal with you
I gotta deal with you
I gotta deal with you
Hey, let me tell ya!
Get down with my woman, that ain't right!
You hollerin' and cussin', you want to fight!
Don't do me no darn favor
I don't know karate, but I know Ka-Razor! (yes we do!)

Huh, hey
Get ready, that's a fact
Get ready you mother for the big payback (the big payback!)
Hey! I'm a man! I'm a man!
I'm a son of a man, but don't they tell ya then Pappa can
Get ready for the big payback (the big payback!)
Hit 'em again!

Lord, Lord
Yeah, hey, get ready
I need it, I need a hit again!
Say it once
Say it once
Say it once
Hit 'em back!
The big payback!

Sold me out for chump change
Said my woman had it all arranged
Tryin' to make a deal, she wants to squeal
But I had my boys on her heels
Saw when she comin', told a lie
She broke down like she wanted to die

I don't care what she does
She gon' be doin' just like she was
Take those kids and raise them up
Somebody teach 'em to be righteous tough
Take her, take that woman, it's one place she found
Just run that mother out of town
Make it get up! Make it get up, get out
Make it get up! Make it get up, get out
I'm mad! I want revenge, I want revenge (the big payback!)
I want revenge
I want revenge
I want revenge, I want revenge
Can I get some hits? I need those hits
I need those hits, hit me

Lord, I need those hits
Carry on, carry on
Pay back all of it (the big payback!)
Oh, oh, oh (the big payback!)
The big payback
