  • Word is bond, we got it goin on
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock to the break of dawn
    In the air, in the air
    It's like that y'all, ya don't stop
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock the sure shot
    In the air, in the air

    Word is bond, we got it goin on
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock to the break of dawn
    In the air, in the air
    It's like that y'all, ya don't stop
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock the sure shot
    In the air, in the air

    Whenever ya hear the piece of the track, peace to the black
    Peeps on the streets with the beats in the jeeps
    Comin back in '94 with the raw that's against the law
    It's the G-O-D, my delivery is see-O-D
    Word is bond and bond is life
    We got it goin on tonight, don't nobody want to fight
    They want to see a tight show where some brothers might go for broke
    Utilisin the effects of the smoke

    More cash to smash to make the blunt last
    Fill it with hash til it pass, don't even ask in the Flat'
    Put *** in a grip, flags is half-mast
    Somebody must've passed, we're makin your *** drip into the stands
    Fold my cash at last, my task to teach the class
    And receive somethin more than brass is a blast
    Make a brother work hard, long and fast

    Word is bond, we got it goin on
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock to the break of dawn
    In the air, in the air
    It's like that y'all, ya don't stop
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock the sure shot
    In the air, in the air

    Word is bond, we got it goin on
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock to the break of dawn
    In the air, in the air
    It's like that y'all, ya don't stop
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock the sure shot
    In the air, in the air

    Dreadlock, I send a rock from my block
    Clock wax like crack, samplin from old stacks
    That's where the soul's at, in this whole rap universe
    We kick the funky tunes with a burst
    Sun, moon and star, *?Sunbumba?* Jamar
    To get me in the flow, now I'm read' to go
    Set to show, everybody in the party that we're nice
    Wit out sippin on Bacardi and ice

    The southpaw, ask your ma, I be the shinin star
    No matter who you are, no matter who you are
    I'll rape the tape, drop along in interstate
    Wit weight, wipe the slate and, mob the gate
    And by fakin I'll avoid the court date, no legal aid
    Everything's paid, while courts are tyraid
    If the money ain't made, talkin millions
    But spendin penny's and gettin cheap shoes from Kenny's

    Word is bond, we got it goin on
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock to the break of dawn
    In the air, in the air
    It's like that y'all, ya don't stop
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock the sure shot
    In the air, in the air

    Now let's take time out to say peace to the GODs (PEACE)
    Bust how I release 'cause this beat is hard
    We be the squad from raw-taught to rule
    Take a thought to the top now I drop the jewel

    I push the Cadillac DeVille and still we real
    I drive a garbage truck and not give a
    I need to earn a buck four-a-year
    I'm through with buyin' wild gear
    Just somethin' can wear, somethin' fly when I'm there

    Well now we're here to take the gold and the cash 'fore the bill fold
    I told their *** to chill and they're still cold
    Frozen 'cause they're not amongst the chosen one
    Sun shines like a beacon, similar to Howard Speake

    As I receive the mic for the last time, I clear up your past crime
    All felonies can go, as long as you know
    Brand Nubian will stand, without the use of a band
    We always work with a plan

    Word is bond, we got it goin on
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock to the break of dawn
    In the air, in the air
    It's like that y'all, ya don't stop
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock the sure shot
    In the air, in the air

    Word is bond, we got it goin on
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock to the break of dawn
    In the air, in the air
    It's like that y'all, ya don't stop
    C'mon throw ya hands in the air
    Brand Nubian'll rock the sure shot
    In the air, in the air
