You hear me talkin', you know I'm from the O A K
I tell it like it is and that's the only way
I'm the M, the A, the C, the K
I write my rhymes everyday

Now, all you one-rap rappers, what are you doin'?
I got so many raps, so just go right through 'em
My name is Short but I rap long rhymes
Hand me your mic, I do it all the time

Now, could you be like me? I hate to say it
It's like comparin' Mickey D's and Quick Ways
You only got 3 stores, I got the whole wide world
I get beeps everyday from your favorite girl

But I'm such a dog, I never call the freak
Hit it once and she was just too weak
At my house I keep finer things, the candy paints
Got her sprung on my diamond rings

She could live like a queen if she was Miss Too Short
Have two babies, get child support
But at this point she gets nothin' from me
I ain't fakin' it freak, I'm just makin' the beat

So don't dance, ride the strip
All day long playin' Too Short hits
Pop in the tape and start ridin', silly young freak
Who started sidin' in the Oaktown

Oaktown, Oaktown, Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown
In the Oaktown, Oaktown, Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown
Oaktown, Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown, Oaktown
Oak-Oaktown, Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown, Oaktown

See I'm a true MC, I'm not a MC fool
I'm just rich and famous and way too cool
I get paid to rhyme and I do mean G's
You don't like my raps, don't buy 'em please

I give you no refund 'cause my bass is phat
Make it hit so hard, just like a punch in the back
It's that dope fiend beat, got my rap on your plate
Tryin' to bite my style and make a demo tape

Now, could you be like me or someone else?
Bass hittin' hard like the Freaky Tales
Oaktown style, it goes just like this
If you never heard me rap, don't trip

'Cause I hit the scene with my homie Too Clean
We slap hands like a tag team
Some people say, they don't like Cali raps
People like that must be smokin' that crack

I rhyme good, it's been 10 long years
Gettin' sick of all that stuff I always hear
"Too Short can't rap, he's from the West Coast"
Between me and you, partner I sell the most

So let's take it to the stage and don't get scared
'Cause me and Too Clean, we come well prepared
They call me Playboy Short and the girls I play
Every single day in the Oaktown

Oaktown, Oaktown, Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown
In the Oaktown, Oaktown, Oak-Oaktown
Oak-Oaktown, Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown

Oaktown, Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown, Oaktown
Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown, Oaktown, Oak-Oaktown
Oaktown, Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown, Oaktown
Oak-Oaktown, Oaktown, Oak-Oak-Oak-Oaktown
