Knocked up nine months ago
And what she's fittin' to have she don't know
She wants neo-soul cause hip hop is old
She don't want no rock 'n' roll
She want platinum, ice and gold
She want a whole lot of somethin' to fold
If you're an obstacle she'll just drop you cold
Cause one monkey don't stop the show

Little Mary's bad, in these streets she done ran
Ev'r since when the heat began I told the girl
"Look here calm down I'm gonna
Hold your hand to enable you to keep the plan
Because you is quick to learn and we can make money to burn
If you allow me the latest game, I don't ask for much
But enough room to spread my wings
And a world finna to know my name"

I don't ask for much these days
And I don't bitch and whine if I don't get my way
I only wanna fertilize another behind my lover's back
I sit and watch it grow roots standin' where I'm at

Fertilize another behind my lover's back
And I'm keepin' my secrets mine
I push my seed in her bush for life
It's gonna work because I'm pushin' it right
If Mary dropped my baby girl tonight
I would name her Rock 'N' Roll

Cadillac needs space to roam, where we headed for?
She don't know, we in the city where the pros shake, rattle and roll
And I'm a gaddang rollin' stone, I don't beg, I can hold my own
I don't break, I can hold the chrome and it's weighin' a ton
And I'm a son of a gun, my code name is 'The Only One'
And Black Thought is bad, the mean streets he done ran
Ev'r since when the game began I never played the fool
Matter fact, I've been keepin it cool

Since money been changin hands and I'm left to shine
The legacy I leave behind, be the seed that'll keep the flame
I don't ask for much but enough room to spread these wings
And the world finna know my name

I don't beg from no rich man and I don't scream and kick
When his shit don't fall in my hands, man
'Cuz I know how to steal, fertilize another against my lover's will
I lick the opposition 'cuz she don't take no pill
No dear, you'll be keepin' my legend alive

I push my seed in her bush for life
It's gonna work because I'm pushin' it right
If Mary dropped my baby girl tonight
I would name her Rock 'N' Roll

Break it down, break it down, down for me

I push my seed somewhere deep in her chest
I push it naked 'cuz I've taken my test
Deliver it, Mary, it don't matter the sex
I'm gon name it Rock 'N' Roll

I push my seed in her bush for life
It's gonna work because I'm pushin' it right
If Mary dropped my baby girl, tonight
I would name her Rock 'N' Roll

I would name her Rock 'N' Roll
I would name her Rock 'N' Roll, yeah
I would name it Rock 'N' Roll
