I've got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills

I'm Mike D and I'm bustin' out trap kits
The time has come so I'm going to rap this
You Rip Van Winkle now you're gonna wake up
Mc's pick up a hobby that you're gonna take?

I'm on the stage I'm known to break fool
But when I'm at the table it's the Futterman's rule
Workin' on my game 'cause it's there to tax
I'm on a crazy mission to wax bob mack

Up to the top, to the very last drop
I'm making bunk from the rhymes I make
I'm selling sex rhymes by the pound
You horny MC's wont you gather round

I've got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills

So I let it pull through when it comes to me
Let it go down like it's supposed to be
Words together like birds in a flock
Yes, rhymes on time like the hands on a clock

Well I'm an epileptic, a skept-a-cleptic
I'm cutting up the beats from Van Halen
I fucked around and then I lost my tooth
I'm telling everybody it's the goddamned truth

Like Dennis Coffey I'm a Scorpio
Like my man Schneider, I'm a super hoe
Making mountains out of molehills and rockin' some mo' skills
Butt naked beats with butt naked 'cause

I've got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills

Welcome, welcome, welcome back
I don't sell bullets and I don't sell crack
Rub a little oil on my neck and back
Now listen baby doll we outta hit the sack

The original young Aboriginal
Continued evolution of an individual
Got so many rhymes ya know my throat is sore
It's 1992 and still no one to vote for

Well my words are what I'm seeing through my own eyes
A little vision of the truth in this world of lies
When it comes to coming off I like to get my fill
Well I got the skills

I got the skills to pay the bills
I got the skills to pay the bills
I got the skills to pay the bills
I got the skills to pay the bills
