They want you to believe
the unbelievable
They say we should accept
the unacceptable
Forget your common sense
it isn't sensible
Good times for fools and dreamers!

Watch 'em all deny
the undeniable
See how they refute
the irrefutable
They're ready to defend
the indefensible
High times for lawyer schemers!

They say we must forgive
the unforgivable
They want us to respect
the unrespectable
The pious and the hip
so hypocritical
High crimes and misdemeanors...

Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop
Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop
Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop

See how they explain
the inexplicable
Watch 'em all debate
the undebatable
Apparently a lie
is never liable
Prime time for talk show screamers!

They say we constitute
the constitutional
With justice here for all
so justifiable
I'm tryin' not to laugh
but man it's laughable
High crimes and misdemeanors...

And so
Today we find
They've changed their mind
They've switched their points of view

Oh what tangled webs they weave
When their beliefs ain't really
what they believe...

Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop
Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop
Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop
Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop
hip hop, hip hop, hip hop

And so today we find
They've changed their mind
They've switched their points of view

Oh what tangled webs they weave
When their beliefs ain't really
what they believe...

They're trying to divide
the indivisible
Because they think we're fools
so foolable
I'm tryin' not to laugh
but man it's laughable
Boom times for wall street dreamers!

They want you to believe
the unbelievable
They say we should accept
the unacceptable
The pious and the hip
so hypocritical
High crimes and misdemeanors
High crimes and misdemeanors
High crimes and misdemeanors

Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop
Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop
Hip hop, hip-ocracy, hip hop
Hip!
