  • Yo Shock man people be comin up to me sayin
    "Yo man, what's up with the Underground, man?
    You guys old school, new school, R&B or hip-hop?"
    What should I tell em?

    Now this is not your average everyday rap song
    We won't be rockin bells that go a ding and a dong
    The bass drummer hipper won't be lingering on
    Check out the way we kick it on the microphone
    The funky beat is playin and we're swingin along
    The Underground is rockin with the hip-hop song
    The drums are ringin with the serious tone
    Ah clock this y'all, we're on the microphone
    Ah MC's, you like the way we swing
    Well listen close and make sure you don't miss a thing
    Don't you know that we're the microphone masters
    Known to MC's as the raw dog bastards
    We bust rhymes, and write everyday
    So listen close, to the things that we say
    Triple-slippin MC's will get verbally raped
    We'll send you home with that look on your face
    And just rock this, you can't stop this
    Ah just rock this, try and clock this (try and clock this)
    The funky beat is playing and we're swingin along
    The Underground is rockin with the hip-hop song
    The funky drums is ringin with the serious tone
    Ah clock this y'all, we're on the microphone
    Ah MC's, ya like the way we swing (ya like the way we swing)
    Cause America, likes the way we swing

    MC's, you like the way we swing
    I hope you do, cause if you don't it don't mean a thing
    See we don't play for other hip-hop crews, it's not about you
    We do the things that we want to do
    We're MC's to please the loyal followers
    But you you're just a sucker hip-hop borrower
    Your real name is probably Bradworth or Bennett
    Your verbal baggage ain't got nuthin in it
    You think that you're rockin but you're not hip-hoppin
    So you best stop jockin at the masters
    MC's, you like the way we swing (you like the way we swing)
    Yeah, cause America, likes the way we swing

    MC's, you like the way we swing (you like the way we swing)
    The Queen told you that you're nothing but an underling
    We're talkin trash, we kick it kind of cocky
    You can't deny it though the drums are good and sloppy
    The funky beat is playin and we're swingin along
    The Underground is rockin with the hip-hop song
    The funky drums are ringin with the serious tone
    Ah clock this y'all, we're on the microphone
    Ah MC's, like the way we swing (they like the way we swing)
    Cause America, likes the way we swing
    [whispered] You're triple-slippin you're triple-slippin
    You're triple-slippin (yo man) you rhyme like a school teacher
    About convincing as a preacher, who smokes reefer
    Why don't you give it up just put the mic down
    Get out of town with that noise, this is the underground
    Not your average everyday rap crew
    You can tell by the things we say the things that we do
    The funky beat is playin and we're swing along
    Ah clock this y'all, we're on the microphone
    Ah MC's, you like the way we swing (ya like the way we swing)
    Cause America, ahh, likes the way we swing
    And ya don't stop

    MC's... they don't know
    MC's... they don't know
    MC's... they don't know
    MC's... what I know
    DJ's... they don't know
    DJ's... they don't know
    DJ's... they don't know
    DJ's... what I know

    See we have no time for suckers
    Who bite with their lowers and their uppers
    We came here to play and what we really want to say
    is MC's, why don't you take the chill pill
    You really need to listen to the way we spill
    ah these rhymes, we don't have time to drop a dime
    Everytime a sucker thief gets away with a line
    Their mouths keep suckin cause they ain't got nothin
    But they best stop ****IN with the masters
    MC's, you like the way we swing (you like the way we swing)
    Yeah, cause America, likes the way we swing
    MC's, you like the way we swing
    Cause Africa, likes the way we swing
    MC's, you like the way we swing
    Cause down in Australia, they love the way we swing
    MC's, you like the way we swing
    Yo, cause Zimbabwe, likes the way we swing (and ya don't stop)
    Ahh, MC's, you like the way we swing
    Cause over in the Philippines, they love the way we swing
    Yeah, MC's, you like the way we swing
    Don't you know the UK y'all, likes the way we swing
    Ahh, MC's, hah you like the way we swing
    Even in Cleveland, they like the way we swing
    MC's, you like the way we swing
    Japan, likes the way we swing
    (Kick it Shock) and ya don't stop
    Ah keep on gonna rock til we hit the top
    Ah one time, in your mind y'all
    Get busy, get busy, get busy, get busy...
