You got it (13X)

Get up everybody
And listen to this rhyme
My name is Everlast
and yo, I'm always on time
I got what it takes to make this groove complete
When my dj cuts
He's never missin' a beat
I'm down with the Syndicate
And they're down with me
I'm also down with Divine, balyle(?) and quincy D.
Terry B.
Dj Lethal
And my brotha Kool Nick,
Kid Jazz,
Scratch, Bangle and Cut Master Quick
I worked hard and long
To master this trade
And to quote my other song
yo, I'm just south to get paid
So sleep on me now,
for my time will come
everlast lasts forever
That's why I'm numba 1

I got the knack (7X)

You got it

Everlast is in effect
Gettin' big respect
and I collect big checks
1's, 5's, 10's, 20's, 100 g's
I'm pullin' honey
Left and right
Day and night
You gotta see this
to believe it
it's quite A site
They're all on my d**k
To get a sip
Of this white performer
that's fully equipt
But I'm out to get paid
Not to get laid
All across the country
My records gettin' played
The radio stations
Clubs and encores?
And after every show I make three encores
sleep on me now
For my time will come
everlast lasts forever
That's why I'm numba 1

I got the knack (5X)

Ah, yah, check this out

Step up place your bet
I'll serve your fortune
But first I must issue
Just one word of caution
don't lyric presentations on my song notarity
Everlast is on the rise, moving crews aside
My voice is moist
Resighting choice vocals
Respected world wide
And feared by locals
Poppin' junk out your punk mouth
Makin' bets
It's too late for regrets
It's time to pay your debts
E-V-E-are-L-A-S-T
is the name that I fare
A poetic demi-God with skin that is fair
So sleep on me now
for my time will come
Everlast lasts forever
That's why I'm numba 1

I got the knack (10X)

Now there's too many people in this world tryin' to play me
like I'm some kind of sucka
Constantly they disobey me
Tellin' me what's sellin'
What kinda records you charted
'sound like him
'sound like her
But they all sound retarded
Take very little time
To write down A ryhme
It's confusing to see so many people so blind
Some think that it's a sell out
Rhymin' to this beat
But Everlast take any groove and make it sound complete!
I got the knack!!
