I grab the mic to commence with the mic check
Supply rhymes, man you've never heard yet
You never thought an Asian could do this
Well, you're wrong, wrong again hardcore

That's what I wanna be
All over the white world yes, they'll remember me
Don't look at me as an innocent bystander
Because I'll scare you after dark


Paki bashing that's what I call fucking racism
And you can tell I'm a fucking Paki lover
Day to day, night to night
Persecution with a capital P, racism with a capital R

Man I've seen your scar
I've seen your scar
You expect me to sympathize, the hell no
You don't know the price that we're paying


What you see is no mirage
Asian guys and girls comin' large
Straight from the East tough
And coming like a beast

Guys who are very keen and showing ability
Tranquility, we have the audacity
Speaking out
'Cos there's no doubt about that

Another critical rhyme make you wanna look
Observe it, it's like a comic book
Coming from the place with the capital B
I'll let you guess, no let me tell you

The B and the A and the N and the G and the L and the A
With a word called Desh sums up the country
The word and the place called Bangladesh
So you never contest

Yes, you thought I couldn't do it
I'm not a Black man this time it's an Asian
Some fear the white man
Some fear the Ku Klux Klan

But they ain't up to no good
Brother brother, sister sister
Yes, if your miss or if your mister
Listen to this rap, it's Asian guys coming correct

Way back in the sixties our fathers, our mothers
They suffered a lot for us
They couldn't say much
They couldn't do much 'cos of the fear of getting beat up

But now it's the nineties
We're not babies no more
You know the score
That we live for

Our fathers, our mothers they brought us up to be tough
We don't stand for any bullshit, we don't give a damn
Even if you're Superman
Strong culture is what you see in our eyes
Not just tough guys
