  • [Chorus]
    S-H-I-N-I-N on the funk
    And listen to the emcees rhymin on the funk
    We solemnly swear to never bust a style that's bunk
    So listen to the way that we're rhyming on the funk

    [Shock G]
    Now we would like to ask you
    Have you ever heard this style befo'
    You gotta say no
    Cause there ain't no denying
    And if you say yes you're lying
    People are always wondering
    What's up with the Underground
    Are they down?
    Or is just another new sound
    We're saying things
    And when we use a beat we use it right
    Cause we're not just playing things
    Spitting rhymes
    Like a Tommy gun spraying things
    So when you see us onstage
    Don't just stare us down
    Or compare our sound
    To any other crew ya like
    Yo, judge how ya like


    Riding this like a roller coaster
    Hugging the curves and dipping
    Like I'm supposed to do
    For the Underground troupe
    Cause I know I'm the poop
    Steaming hot
    Stinking up the dance floor
    Gonna do it freelance
    For the funk, my friends
    And all the others in the industry
    They want to get with me
    (Shock: Why is that, Mon?)
    Maybe it's my smooth flow
    They know this guy is dope
    So they get hip to the style I'm using
    It's called Raw Fusion
    Ain't no time for ego-tripping
    Let it be known
    There'll be no slipping on mine
    Cause all I want
    Is a chunk of this Underground funk


    [Shock G]
    Yo, Money-be

    What's up cold Shock G?

    [Shock G]
    Check it out, would you tell the people what we mean

    What do you mean what we mean?

    [Shock G]
    You know what I mean
    Tell 'em what we mean
    When we're are-H-why-M-I-N on the funk
    Let 'em know that we got spunk

    We got it

    [Shock G]
    And when I count to three
    Go on and hit some of that humpty-hump
    One, two, three

    Well, I'm humpty-humping
    You know that I'm saying something
    The funk's in your face
    Gonna keep the place jumping
    As the beat keeps pumping
    I'm tick-tocking 'em
    Dope rhymes, I'm dropping 'em
    On the twenty-four track
    And there ain't no stopping 'em
    It's too late to put the tape on pause
    Because we're

    [funk sample interlude]

    Tell me if you think the beat is nasty
    Well get ready, we're going to get sweaty
    Just in case I hope you brought a towel in
    I'm on the prowl when I hear the bass growling

    [Shock G]
    Growling like a big bass monster
    On a rampage, it's like we were onstage
    Shock G speaking from the Underground

    Do they understand?

    [Shock G]
    I really don't give a damn
    Cause we're
