Dear Alex and Marilyn
They're Lovey and Thurston Howellin'
The grasshopper unit is prowellin'
And Rufus is back home growellin'

For all of y'all that be dozin'
On Hornblower's lederhosen
Like Walt Disney he is frozen
And in the Swiss Hall of Fame he goes in

'Cause when he's out in space carousin'
Pick up the mic and start joustin'
My name plate medallion
Says never trust a HAL 9000

Can't, won't, don't
Can't, won't, don't

Check the horizontal hold and check the tint
Are these three fools back at it again?
Inspector Clouseau and Derek Flint
Nothin' but sparks ignitin'

Check two, one, two mic testin'
This one goes out to Dechen
Rise fallen fighters take your stance again
Don't think too much about the color of skin

Order in vegetarian sharks fin
Try to keep my life non-violent
Mario rewind the tape and punch him in
Like Chuck D with the where you never been I'm in

Can't, won't, don't
Can't, won't, don't

I'm a long way from where I've been
But I gotta keep movin', movin on

Ooh, my my, I'm really not feelin' it
Ooh, my my, somethin's really wrong
Ooh, my my, I'm really not feelin' it
Ooh, my my, somethin's really wrong

The P.A. sound is deafenin'
Bitin MC's I'm oustinin'
With spinach in your teeth you're grinnin'
So on your way out please take a mint

Got the studio to throw a craze in
Those bass lines Yauch just lays in
This song is the grass you're grazin'
Add a little flange and phase in

Don't get mad 'cause I'm beguilin'
I'm off the hook, don't bother dialin'
They're gonna put me in the B I N
And if I die notify the next of kin

It's like that y'all
It's like that y'all
It's like that y'all

DIAMOND, MICHAEL LOUIS / HOROVITZ, ADAM / YAUCH, ADAM NATHANIEL
