Beastie Boys – Sabotage lyrics

I can't stand it, I know you planned it,
I'm gonna set it straight, this watergate.
I can't stand rockin' when I'm in here,
Cause your crystal ball ain't so crystal clear.
So, while you sit back and wonder why,
I got this fuckin' thorn in my side.
Oh my God, it's a mirage!
I'm tellin' y'all it's sabotage!

So listen up 'cause you can't say nothin'
You'll shut me down with a push of your button.
But I'm out, and I'm gone,
I'll tell you now I keep it on and on.

'Cause what you see you might not get,
And we can't bet, so don't you get souped yet.
You're schmeing on a thing that's a mirage,
I'm trying to tell you now it's sabotage!

Why! Our backs are now against the wall.
Listen all of y'all, it's a sabotage,
Listen all of y'all, it's a sabotage,
Listen all of y'all, it's a sabotage,
Listen all of y'all, it's a sabotage!

I can't stand it, I know you planned it,
I'm gonna set it straight this watergate.
But I can't stand rockin' when I'm in this place,
Because I feel disgrace because you're all in my face!
But make no mistakes and switch up my channel,
I'm buddy rich when I fly off the handle.
What could it be? It's a mirage,
You're scheming on a thing that's sabotage
