  • [Verse 1]
    Deliber us from evil, litter bugged amoeba
    Simmer on the brimstone, grim tone, bring him home
    Authoritative restoration will be rationed righteously
    to those deemed suitably fit to police their own sobriety
    Standard law that wriggle intimate, mingle with
    Coincidental mishap, then snap, curse the digs
    Yellow brick Zooka birthed the p___
    I trust that every litigant will be his own worst pig
    Thirst big, baby, I reckon y'all are a mess too
    But insecurities will make your bio sound less cool
    If fizzy lifting drinks are par for saddling your horse
    you might consider sawing Sea Biscuit off at the knees before
    Few chew sacred like them sewer cougars patient
    'til the Lugar movers daytrip with them super cookers blazing
    Divvy up the remarkable carcass, what a relief
    And y'all ain't even washed yesterday's blood off your teeth
    Behind the buck-bin Duane Reade aviators plated
    With the dookie brown tint sit the googly off the daily paper
    Clip red or blue, either way the shredder chew
    Letter to the editor messenger, let him through

    [Chorus]
    Engine engine number nine, sock it to me one more time
    Said uh, un-gowa, we got the power (Repeat x3)
    Automatic systematic engine number nine, sock it to me one more time
    Said un-gowa we got the power
    Okay, do your thing (*Echoes*)
    Family, do your thing, do your thing, stop

    [Verse 2]
    I put a beetle on his back and take notes, play a dealt
    Hand, kicks wing tips 'til the tank flips conveyor belt
    Shelf a mayor saber for catering navy savior help
    Who treat stray children like clay pigeons off the sailor's deck
    He squeaks 'pull', I freak the wool over the owl eye
    filter sheepish winter through its sister on the outside
    Meanwhile back at HQ
    He's twisting his moustache, hatching a plan to hate you
    Shark fin dollar pay a ghost guild buckets
    Hard pill to swallow and he knows pills, trust him
    Drunkards of the crystal palace suck a__ignment, walk the diamonds
    In the soles of your chukkas back to the slaves who mined 'em
    It's Raggedy Andy clan; fancy the pretty stitches
    'til he learned the skinny on the fragility's physics
    Like he snag a b___on eye on the fly by the barbs
    Super glue the parts, now his students are alarmed
    No worries, it's snow flurries compared to what the sheriff wish
    curfew the city that must not
    Bust warn shots at a run-of-mill Waldo on a doctor hunt
    he will make the most wonderful sarcophagus occupant

    [Chorus]
    Engine engine number nine, sock it to me one more time
    Said uh, un-gowa, we got the power (Repeat x3)
    Automatic systematic engine number nine, sock it to me one more time
    Said un-gowa we got the power
    Okay, do your thing (*Echoes*)
    Family, do your thing, do your thing, stop

    [Verse 3]
    Rotten egg, not to be pegged as fashionably tardy
    The difference is the latter got the freebies from the barkeep
    Wait, Aes-f___ing-Rock is in the building
    The room looked up, looked down, kept sniffing
    Slit the neck and slip the chip in, sipping anti-governmental zombie grog
    but zombied up gladly on your Swiss Army watch
    As if twitching upon your authored condition's
    really that different from administered conditioning glitches
    Kissing a firewater pitcher with the fatal Drano-chase game
    It's hiding in the Nang labeled with the day-glow face paint
    Some buckle when the T-Rex treks shakes the puddles
    My huggable jungle
    My son of a dove cry, humble, even doves die
    I took the black outta something to judge the lung by
    I took the mag out like the crack out of a b__'s pipe
    I hook the tag up like a flag over the plum sky
    Mud pie cruiser with an oink for the innocent
    I blame it on the ambiguous quote unquote system
    If a quota needs some filling you're a w____
    Sincerely yours, engine number nine conductor, all aboard!

    [Chorus]
    Engine engine number nine, sock it to me one more time
    Said uh, un-gowa, we got the power (Repeat x3)
    Automatic systematic engine number nine, sock it to me one more time
    Said un-gowa we got the power
    Okay, do your thing (*Echoes*)
