Well I'm chilly chill most of the time
But I make a lot of noise when I bust a fresh rhyme
I'm coolin with the posse, cold drinkin pissy
Met a young girl and got cold busy
Not Abbott and Costello, just me and my mellow
Got a microphone so I don't gotta bellow (yeah)
I'm tough not yellow, I don't eat Jell-o
I know that I'm def what about this fellow (tell em)
I'm Mike D, I'm known fly cooly (tell em)
Got the fly rhymes and the fresh fly woolie
Startin epidemic each and every time (time)
Girls cuttin class to hear me rhyme
Stand at the bar don't sit on a stool
Ride a Harley not a goddamn mule
Well...kick it!
Me and my crew doin the do
Coolin around the way cause we got to
There's one more thing that you should know
Mike D...is a desperado
Well DJ strong hold poppin that weak
He punched Big Bird in his goddamn beak
Gold on my fingers, silver in my pocket
Mike went to the party and (D) tried to rock it
That party was weak, I did the freak
I peeped out the back with the fresh unique
Got girls on my tippy back out the way (what?)
Jockin and clockin I'm MCA (yeah)
It must be a drag just getting old
But I don't gotta worry cause I'm so damn cold
Kick it cold, cold rockin
My name is Adam Yauch and I know you all clockin
Me and my posse oh so killin
Stone cold fly and nive to five chillin
There's one more thing you all should know (what?)
Ad-Rock's a desperado
M-I-K-E D-E-E-E
I'm on top and that's the way to be
I'm the stupid defest always rockin
Every store in town you know it's stockin
All of my records are records on charts (charts)
You know I'm goddamn stupid
Farther than any other record can go
Don't you know I'm rockin in stereo
I'm on the top, bottom, even in the middle
I got the def rhymes and it ain't no riddle
I'm the king of the castle with no hassle
Take a girlie to my house, we start to wrestle
Cause I'm a rebel without a pause (check it) (word)
Keep rockin and breakin laws
I got Gucci cologne so you know I'm not stinkin
Got more rhymes than my boy Abe Lincoln
Get those suckers cause you know I gotta
Order a fajita and a fresh enchilada
Shot that parrot cause he used to chirp
Can't eat Chinese cause it makes me burp
Went from bar to bar I got rejected
My fake ID, it was disrespected
Got records in London (inaudible)
Quit my job cause my boss is a faggot
One more thing that you should know
MCA....is a desperado
