House Of Pain – I Got The Knack lyrics

I Got The Knack

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, Bilal and Quincy D
Terry B., DJ Lethal and my brother Kool Nick
Kid Jazz, Scratch, Bangle and Cut Master Quick
I worked hard and long to master this traight
And to quote my other song, yo I'm just out to get paid

So sleep on me now,
For my time will come
Everlast lasts forever
That's why I'm number one

I got the knack (7x)

Everlast is in effect, gettin' full respect
I collect big checks, 1's, 5's, 10's, 20's, a 100 G's
I'm pullin' honey's left and right, day and night
You gotta see it to believe it, it's quite a sight
There all on my tip to get a sip of this poetic performer
I can get whipped but I'm out to get paid, not to get laid
All across the country my records gettin' played
The radio stations, clubs and renkores
All the shows I play I make them do encores

So sleep on me now,
For my time will come
Everlast lasts forever
That's why I'm number one

I got the knack (5x)

(Ah, yah, hit me, alright, check this out)
Step up place your bet and I'll serve your fortune
But first I must issue just one word of caution
Dope lyric presentations are my soul notiriety
Everlast is on the rise movin' through society
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-r-l-a-s-t
It's the name that I fed a poetic demigod with skin that is fare

I got the knack (10x)

Now there are too many people in this world tryin' to play me
Like I'm some kind of sucker constantly they disobey me
Tellin' me what's sellin', what kinda records be charted
Sound like him, sound like her but they all sound retarded
Takin' very little time to write down a rhyme
It's confusing to see so many people so fly
Some think that it's a sell out rhymin' to this beat
But Everlast takes any groove and makes it sound complete

I got the knack!
