Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Refrain: Left Eye and Method Man]
Rock-a-bye baby from the rooftop
When the guns blow, your cradle gets rocked
When the Earth quakes and the sky starts to fall
Down will come emcees, fake shit and all

[Verse 1: Method Man]
On top I be the sure shot, the bomb drops
Aftershock blow your bumba claat to smithereens
Time stop, flying guillotines, coming for your flock
What you mean you spilled the beans, aye
Blacked out and thought I seen pop, lazer beam Glock
What's a bird to a brother with a flock, what
They got some nerve to even try to share the turf
On John J, flap a nigga gate with the wordplay
Hot Nik shoot you with the gift, it's your birthday
God hating ugly in the worst way
Fuck em like the Earth say from first day I survey the hassle
Death knocking at your door in the Big Apple
Meth rotton to the core
Shackle in the sound castle
The dungeon with vermin in the form of emcees determined
To step foot on God's soil not knowing that these eggheads come hard boiled
And heavy handed
The aliens they just landed and you in the way
Overthrow these niggas planet, Independence Day

Felons, get split melons, homicide bug niggas get the bug repellent
Insecticide, Johnny 5 take it worldwide
As long as I pledge allegiance to the Dark Side
I'll never die, who you know with a flow like this
Bring em in, what Clan you know blow like this
Bring em in, take that nigga

[Refrain: Method Man and Left Eye]
The sound of gun burst put the foul in the dirt, foul in this dirt
You can't fake planning from the mind control theory, mind control theory
Murder in the first bring em back down to Earth, back down to Earth
Y'all niggas don't hear me prepare for the worst, prepare for the worst

[Verse 2: Method Man]
Times gon change, nothing will remain the same
Million dollar broke niggas still fucked up in the game
Make me wanna choke niggas shitting on my name
Tuck your chain when I approach nigga, go against the grain now
Niggas stand in the rain now, Die Hard fan call me John John McClain now
Snake vs the Crane Style
Death to the enemy, Wu brother number one
The centipede, trouble some, send em all to Kingdom Come
Sun still shine one, time for your crooked mind
Drunk off a cheap wine, son I'm into street crime
Every word, every line, got jewels very fine
Turn me loose on mankind, detonate the land mine
Funk gets me going now, never sell, never sold
Live by the code now, never tell, never told

Darts I throw, like Clyde with the finger roll
Clutch shots and what not, this is where the buck stops
Still can't eat and y'all still can't sleep
I elect myself as Presidential emcee
Wu-Tang killa bee, the be-high facility
In love with the blunt smoke, even though its killing me
Bad vibes filling me with thoughts of conspiricy
White Water scandals with Bill Clinton Hillary
Too hot to handle, too well-put together to dismantle

Fucka, you heard me

[Refrain 2: Method Man]
Excuse me as I kiss the sky
Catch me when I fall son I'm too young to die
Me and Lefty, that be the Eye come test me
If you don't know, you never know me
Boost the birdie

[Interlude]

[Hook]

[Outro: Left Eye]
I got three-hundred and sixty degrees of self
That's mind, body and spirit
A hundred twenty degrees a piece
We gon break it down into simple terms
That's nine nigga nine, highest level of change
It's too many niggas sitting on they ass
Waiting for shit to just happen
Shit don't just happen, gonna fuck around a miss a buck
If you take away the negative, make room for the positve
Thats adding and subtracting on the real
Niggas betta learn they math
Cause if my calculations serve me correct
I'mma fuck around and have all this shit
I'm on your ass nigga
