Yo shock man, people be comin' up to me sayin'
Yo man, what's up with the underground man?
You guys old school, new school R and B or hip-hop?
What should I tell 'em?

Now this is not your average everyday rap song
We won't be rockin' bells that go a ding and a dong
The bass drummer hipper won't be lingerin' on
Check out the way we kick it on the microphone

The funky beat is playin' and we're swingin' along
The underground is rockin' with the hip-hop song
The drums are ringin' with the serious tone
Ah clock this y'all, we're on the microphone

Ah MC's, you like the way we swing
Well, listen close and make sure you don't miss a thing
Don't you know that we're the microphone masters?
Known to MC's as 'The Raw Dog Bastards'

We bust rhymes and write everyday
So listen close to the things that we say
Triple-slippin' MC's will get verbally raped
We'll send you home with that look on your face

So just rock this, you can't stop this
Ah just rock this, try and clock this
(Try and clock this)

The funky beat is playing and we're swingin' along
The underground is rockin' with the hip-hop song
The funky drums is ringin' with the serious tone
Ah clock this y'all, we're on the microphone

Ah MC's, ya like the way we swing
(Ya like the way we swing)
'Cause America, likes the way we swing

MC's, you like the way we swing
I hope you do, 'cause if you don't, it don't mean a thing
See we don't play for other hip-hop crews, it's not about you
We do the things that we wanna do

We're MC's to please the loyal followers
But you, you're just a sucker hip-hop borrower
Your real name is probably Bradworth or Bennett
Your verbal baggage ain't got nuthin' in it

You think that you're rockin but you're not hip-hoppin
So you best stop jockin at the masters

MC's, you like the way we swing
(You like the way we swing)
Yeah, 'cause America, likes the way we swing

MC's, you like the way we swing
(You like the way we swing)
The queen told you that you're nothing but an underling
We're talkin' trash, we kick it kind of cocky
You can't deny it though the drums are good and sloppy

The funky beat is playin' and we're swingin' along
The underground is rockin' with the hip-hop song
The funky drums are ringin' with the serious tone
Ah clock this y'all, we're on the microphone

Ah MC's, like the way we swing
(They like the way we swing)
'Cause America, likes the way we swing

You're triple-slippin, you're triple-slippin

You're triple-slippin
(Yo man)
You rhyme like a school teacher
About convincing as a preacher, who smokes reefer
Why don't you give it up? Just put the mic down
Get out of town with that noise, this is the underground

Not your average everyday rap crew
You can tell by the things we say the things that we do
The funky beat is playin' and we're swingin' along
Ah clock this y'all, we're on the microphone

Ah MC's, you like the way we swing
(Ya like the way we swing)
Yeah 'cause America, likes the way we swing
And ya don't stop

MC's
(They don't know)
MC's
(They don't know)
MC's
(They don't know)
MC's
(What I know)

DJ's
(They don't know)
DJ's
(They don't know)
DJ's
(They don't know)
DJ's
(What I know)

You see, we have no time for suckers
Who bite with their lowers and their uppers
We came here to play and what we really wanna say
Is MC's

Why don't you take the chill pill?
You really need to listen to the way we spill
Ah these rhymes, we don't have time to drop a dime
Everytime a sucker thief gets away with a line

Their mouths keep suckin' cause they ain't got nothin'
But they best stop fuckin' with the masters

MC's, you like the way we swing
(You like the way we swing)
Yeah, 'cause America, likes the way we swing

MC's, you like the way we swing
'Cause Africa, likes the way we swing

MC's, you like the way we swing
'Cause down in Australia, they love the way we swing

MC's, you like the way we swing
Yo, 'cause Zimbabwe, likes the way we swing
(And ya don't stop)

Ahh, MC's, you like the way we swing
'Cause over in the Phillipines, they love the way we swing

Yeah, MC's, you like the way we swing
Don't you know the UK y'all, likes the way we swing

Ahh, MC's, hah you like the way we swing
Even in Cleveland, they like the way we swing

MC's, you like the way we swing
Japan likes the way we swing
(Kick it shock)
And ya don't stop

Ah, keep on gonna rock till we hit the top
Ah one time, in your mind y'all
Get busy, get busy, get busy, get busy
