Swept Away Lyrics

by The Roots

MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away

The rhythm just sways and like a sorceress
I slays foes and rivals who wanna come
This way they better pay attention
Or a penchant not to mention suspension
From the microphone plus the tension

Trey-Eight oh's will vacate those
If there's drama with my henchmen
So lamp to my man, Mussolini
Go get your whole staff, call the calf
'Cause half and half's couldn't cream me

The lyrics make your head knock
Malik B and Black Thought, the dreadlock
Man, transgressin', you'll catch lead I, crushin'
Poundin' on the drums like King Kong
We can ring your bell, ding-dong

I styles with my vocabulary
The Roots, the one to call your ultra adversary
Now you're all desert 'cause I'ma serve ya like a tray
To meet your doom, Malik's the boom, so you get swept away

MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away

Yo, hello everybody, do I need introduct'?
I be the mic mercenary, very unclear
To your ear, the exquisite pattern that you hear
It's known to be Black Butta Baby
Crazy cardiac, my attack on any fat rhythm

That I capture, kid, I snatch the mic from Tykes
While I proceed and continue to tend to
Business, 'cause this is how I do
I'm insane and go against the grain like freight
Never on, no nigga dick, 'cause I'm just too hip

Plus I rest where niggaz pack and never act
Other than ill, shit is real in phy double
So if you want trouble let's stomp
My mission is to flip on comp

You might aspire to be flyer than I, you must pay
Your dues while I bruise, niggaz new for the day
Shall be swept away

MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be, I'm on a mission

There's somethin' goin' on

MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away
MCs who slept for days must be swept away
