i can't stand it i know you planned it
but i'm gonna set it straight, this watergate
i can't stand rockin' when i'm in here
because your crystal ball ain't so crystal clear
so while you sit back and wonder why
i got this fuckin' thorn in my side
oh my, it's a mirage
i'm tellin' y'all it's sabotage

so listen up 'cause you can't say nothin'
you'll shut me down with a push of your button?
but i'm out, and i'm gone
i'll tell you now i keep it on and on

'cause what you see you might not get
and we can't bet so don't you get souped yet
you're schmeing on a thing that's a mirage
i'm trying to tell you now it's sabotage

why; our backs are now against the wall
listen all of y'all it's a sabotage

i can't stand it, i know you planned it
but i'm gonna set it straight this watergate
i can't stand rockin' when i'm in this place
because I feel disgrace because you're all in my face
but make no mistakes and switch up my channel
i'm buddy rich when i fly off the handle
what could it be, it's a miracle
you're scheming on a thing; that's sabotage


You wake up late for school - man you don't wanna go
You ask you mom, "Please?" - but she still says, "No!"
You missed two classes - and no homework
But your teacher preaches class like you're some kind of jerk

(chorus) You gotta fight for your right to party

You pop caught you smoking - and he said, "No way!"
That hypocrite - smokes two packs a day
Man, living at home is such a drag
Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (Bust it!)

(repeat chorus)

Don't step out of this house if that's the clothes you're gonna wear
I'll kick you out of my home is you don't cut that hair
Your mom busted in and said, "What's that noise?"
Aw, mom you're just jealous - it's the Beastie Boys!

(repeat chorus twice)

Well, now don't you tell me to smile
You stick around I'll make it worth your while
Like no ones beyond what you can dial
Maybe it's because we're so versetile
Style, profile I said
It always brings me back when I hear ooh child
From the Hudson River out to the Nile
I run the marathon to the very last mile
Well if you battle me I feel reviled
People always sayin my style is wild
You got goal, you got guile
To step to me, I'm a rap-o-phile
If you wanna battle you're in denial
Comin' from Uranus to check my style
Go ahead put my rhymes on trial
Cast you off into exile


Jazz and AWOL thats our team
Step into the party disrupt the whole scene
When it comes to beats well I'm a fiend
I like my sugar with coffee and cream
Well I have to keep it going keep it going full steam
Too sweet to be sour too nice to be mean
With the tough guy style I'm not to keen
Tryin' to change the world, I'm going to plot and scheme
Mario C likes to keep it clean
Goin shine like gaze on tv
Keep on rappin' cause that's my dream
Thank Mo Dee for stickin to the beats
Now when it comes to envy ya'll is green
Jealous of the rhyme and the rhyme routine
Another dimension a new galaxy
Intergalactic Planetary


From the family tree of old school hip-hop
Kick off your shoes and relax your socks
Your rhymes are spread just like a pox
Cause the music is loud like an electric shock
I am know to do the wop
Also known for the Flintstone Flop
Tammy D gets biz on the crops
Beastie Boys known to let the beat
When I write graffiti my name was Slop
If I rap soup my beats is stock
Step from the table when I start to chop
I'm the lumberjack DJ ADrock
If you try to knock me you'll get mocked
I'll stir fry you in my wok
Your knees start shakin and your fingers pop
Like a pinch on the neck from Mr. Spock
