Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Intro
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   I'm taking it to the bridge and there's a different country
   I'm bringing you a people I know deep down are funky
   Oh yeah we dap we got the juice it's on tap
   Never take the time to rewind all that weak crap
   Here take it it's yours the gift is calling
   The sunshine be falling our way first every morning
   I'm a magician you see I'm christened with condition
   Held over from a future world I've come to you so listen
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   There's a place out in deep space
   Where all the brothers chant and dance and rant
   And shave their heads like Buddha
   I'm a fly guy you know I'm smoother
   Of course no remorse is left for all those loser crews
   I do not care what you do I always screw up
   But when I do it's nothing like you I wish you grew up
   You're saying anything like promise to get clean
   Won't kick half dead you're fucked up in the head
---> Play Riff 3 over:
   [Just] get him out of here, get him out of here
   Get him out of here, he's making me sick
   We push a sucker out, with much force and much clout
   Didn't want to do it, that's not what we're about
   But we got to have a limit, how low can you get it
   Seems about time to change the subject and sing about
   The wise eyed girl that makes me feel good
   And never do I leave misunderstood
---> Play Chorus over:
   Damn, you know I feel good true
   Got a choice of what I'm gonna do it's like this
   That, up (herb) is where it's at
   Mix a melody with some back chat (mad cat), tell 'em again
   Damn, I know you feel good too
   You got a choice of what you're going to do it's like this
   That, up is where it's at
   Mix a melody with some back chat
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   I'm rollin' slow no particular place to go nothing's changed
   The more things stay the same the more it doesn't matter
   To a latter day St. Bernard acting hard
   But I throw down like a crazy retard
   But what could make a man
   Wanna walk around the schoolyard with his tool hard
   What could make the switch to call a woman a bitch
   It probably downed when you couldn't get a date to prom
   And you were stuck with Beavis
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   Let's leave us on a note of positivity, I'm saying this for
   Levity, but if I leave it brief I call it brevity
   I said I see the people rocking, which means there's no
   Stopping the flow
   And you can just tell 'em that you know
---> Play Riff 3 over:
   Every night yeah we turnin' up, and comin' off live
   Like a final 311 battle breaking idols
   On the one you never heard before
   You know the hard-core rockin' pumpin' the dance floor
   Leave ya feet sore looking for the Micatin
   You know the mic is deadly in the mood we in
   Certified not fakin', cool like a Jamaican
   Every time the enemy hear us they will be shakin'
---> Play Chorus over:
   Damn, you know I feel good true
   Got a choice of what I'm gonna do it's like this
   That, up is where it's at
   Mix a melody with some back chat, tell 'em again
   Damn, I know you feel good too
   You got a choice of what you're going to do it's like this
   That, up is where it's at
   Mix a melody with some back chat
