[Big L: Verse 1]
Ay yo Rookie, is a game that a fool plays
Im sitting here reminiscin bout my school days
Ay yo I used to go mad fresh
Scoop the chick, stupid prick, get the digits and the address

Yo they was jockin, cause I was clockin mad cash
I slid a chick everyday after last class

Strictly a sex thang
Let me explain
I hit 'em up, get 'em up, and put 'em on the next train
My trademark was black glasses
I cut the wack classes

Then slide off with some cutie pies with fat (hey)
Yo all the fellas was amazed
By the way I was mackin females in my school days

[Hook: repeat 3X]
Yes yes yall (here we go, here we go)

[Verse 2]
Ay yo the school I went to, a whole bunch rhymed
That's why it was battles everyday at lunch time

A brother battled me once it was plain wack
I played him so bad he left school and never came back

And in the lunchroom it was a Big L thing
I made so much noise that you could'nt hear the bell ring
One of us froze then dozed, to the top I rose
And got props when I rocked the school talent shows
My opponents got scarred fast
Thats why when they see me they do the hundred yard dash

I left MCs and they whole crew phased
Yea, thats how I did it in my school days


[Verse 3]
When I first got inside high school, I wasn't known
I roamed alone but I held my own
I was a freshman, in other words a new jack
When you mentioned Big L, brothers was like "Who's that?!"
Then I made the master plan
Know I got a batch of fans
And when you mention my name now- "oh thats my man"

You see how
Its all about me now
All the girls scream ooooouuuuuhh
Whenevever I freestyle

When I roll the whole crews on the scenery
So those who envy me
Can't do a thing to me

I used to move alone now my crews fat
I went from a new jack
To a new mack, thats true black

Im cuttin rappers like sufflays
I came off like toupees
Yea, thats how I did it in my school days
