I eat antipasta twice
Just because she is so nice, Angelina
Angelina, the waitress at the pizzeria

I give up soup and minestrone
Just to be with her alone, Angelina
Angelina, the waitress at the pizzeria

Ti vol-glio be-ne
Angelina I adore you
E vol-glio be-ne
Angelina I live for you

E un pas-sio-ne
You have set my heart on fire
But Angelina
Never listens to my song

I eat antipasta twice
Just because she is so nice, Angelina
Angelina, waitress at the pizzeria

If she’ll be a my My Car-ra mi-a
Then I’ll join in matrimony
With a girl who serves spumoni
And Angelina will be mine!

Popsicles, icicles, baseball and fancy clothes
These are a few of the things he loves
He loves Levis and brown eyes
And wind blowin’ through his hair
These are a part of the boy I love

If you put them all together
Much to your surprise (oh tell me what)
You’ll find a bit of heaven
Right before your eyes

Bright stars and guitars and
Drive-ins on Friday night
These are a few of the things we love

(May be) silly but still he is
Just what I dream about
Yes, he’s the boy that I love

If you put them all together
Much to your surprise (oh tell me what)
You’ll find a bit of heaven
Right before your eyes

Bright stars and guitars and
Drive-ins on Friday night
These are a few of the things we love

(May be) silly but still he is
Just what I dreamed about
Yes, he’s the boy that I love

Popsicles, icicles
Popsicles, icicles, hmmm

Just like Pauline you all-in..

Oooooahhhh
Brace yourself, I’m the ace with grace
I’ma win the race and make you feel disgrace
In any case, yo, I’m movin’ like a steeplechase
MC soldiers — about face
Now step off, I need room for my takeoff
My custom made lyrics slays, yours are soft
I think you better tape this, yo, you can’t escape this
Yo, I planned it out just like a landscapist
Whippersnapper back up for comin’ crap up
I plan to trap a MC and kidnap em
Phony, so skip the baloney
You and your cronies need to jump on a pony
and roll, ’cause you’re just a rookie
When it was time for rap school, you musta played hooky
I’m the show-stopper, your rhymes are improper
I’ma teach you like the master taught the grasshopper
Just gettin’ warmer, I’m a transform a
regular rhyme into a barnstormer
Try to jump I’ll bump you chump, my job is thorough
Any MC, state city or borough will get ragged
I drop like a sandbag
Serious as the mob – I don’t play tag
Best of the batch, no man can catch up
Hoes can’t be passed, a battle’s a mismatch
I flip lyrics, like a acrobat
and avoid combat like a diplomat
But when it’s time for battles, ?? jacked or killed
It’s a thrill to drill a run of the mill Bill
with my skill, I’m the lord of the rhymes
And I be writin’ at a rate that pace way past my bedtime
I rock the mic unlike
some brothers I know, I guess they flow, PSYCH
I’m droppin’ em

Droppin’ em

Yo, you’re all in, stiff as a mannequin
I’m sharp as a pen and I’ma teach discipline
I get busy like it’s two of me
Evidently, I’m hated by a few MC’s
But so what? I just max like I’m playin’ the sax
and take the crowd to the climax
Yo – Cool J, I’ll never go astray
I’m funky you can hear me at the Milky Way
You’re weak, wick raps, I’m cool as Jazz
Got razzmatazz ask my man Shabazz
I know you’re afraid because I’m self-made
I invade, and blow up like a hand grenade
MC’s are terror-struck, I’ma run amuck
’cause your rhymes suck, you made a record on potluck
Just a toy boy, can’t stop my convoy
Rhymes I said last year were just decoys
I’m like a fox, you annoy me like chicken pox
I’m back with a style that’s unorthodox
You musta had a teaspoon full of bull
I’m like The Hulk, with more bulk, I’m powerful
They try to get with this, to me that’s an insult
Boys shouldn’t mess with an adult, that’s too difficult
I enter like a giant sayin fee fi foe fum
Then rock the auditorium until it’s pandemonium
I’m droppin’ em

Yo E, droppin’ em

Don’t sleep – ’cause I’ma go deeper
All you sleepers, I’m the Grim Reaper
My rhymes are rising, the angle’s gettin’ steeper
I hated Mussolini Martini so I’ma sweep a
emcee, like he’s one of the two
Break him into fragments right in front of you
Mic check one two, is too fundamental
My rhymes are monumental over an instrumental
In the center, I had to enter
Tormentor mentor experimenter and inventor
of lyrics, so all you non-believers
It’ll echo in your dreams at night when you receive a
rude awakening, you can’t do anything
You enter my kingdom and you cry as men bring
gifts to the prince of excellence and magnificence
Alarm clock rings, you wake up, and you’re convinced
that the crew invader, soloist exterminator
greater evader of ducks, concert crusader
is BAD, my nickname’s the circuit breaker
Eatin’ up the world, acre by acre
I’m droppin’ em

Word to mother, droppin’ em!
KnowhatI’msayin? Straight til 1999, droppin’ em!
Yo, year two thousand, yaknahmsayin?
Audi man

Yo I’m droppin’ em

From the inside room when the front room greeting
Becomes your special book, it was simple then
When the party lulls, if we fall by the side

Will you be remembered? will she be remembered?
Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed
If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face?
I fell by your bed once, I didn’t want to tell you
I should keep myself in between the pages
Of the green light room if we fall by the side

Will you be remembered? will she be remembered?
Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed
If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face?
I fell by your bed once, I didn’t want to tell you
I should keep myself in between the pages
Of the green light room if we fall by the side

From the inside room when the front room greeting
Becomes your special book, it was simple then
When the party lulls, if we fall by the side

I still like you, can you remember?
Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed
If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face?
Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed
If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face?

They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it’s all that you’ve got
Metal shivs on wood push through our back
There’s a splinter in your eye and it reads "React"

They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown

She said:

Oh…

Please find my harborcoat, can’t go outside without it
Find my harborcoat, can’t go outside without it

They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it’s all that you’ve got
Metal shivs on wood push through our back
There’s a splinter in your eye and it reads "react", R-E-A-C-T

Please find my harborcoat, can’t go outside without it
Find my harborcoat, can’t go outside without it

They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown

She said:

Please find my harborcoat, can’t go outside without it
Find my harborcoat, can’t go outside without it

When I was young and full of grace
And spirited – a rattlesnake
When I was young and fever fell
My spirit, I will not tell
You’re on your honor not to tell

I believe in coyotes and time as an abstract
Explain the change, the difference between
What you want and what you need, there’s the key,
Your adventure for today, what do you do
Between the horns of the day?

(chorus)
I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

When I was young and give and take
And foolish said my fool awake
When I was young and fever fell
My spirit, I will not tell
You’re on your honor, on your honor
Trust in your calling, make sure your calling’s true
Think of others, the others think of you
Silly rule golden words make, practice, practice makes perfect,
Perfect is a fault, and fault lines change

I believe my humor’s wearing thin
And change is what I believe in
I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

When I was young and full of grace
As spirited a rattlesnake
When I was young and fever fell
My spirit, I will not tell
You’re on your honor, on your honor
I believe in example
I believe my throat hurts
Example is the checker to the key

I believe my humor’s wearing thin
And I believe the poles are shifting

I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

On the outside, underneath the wall
All the money couldn’t buy
You’re mistaken, no one’s standing there
For the record no one tried

Oh, I try to
What if we give it away?

Overlooking with a hollow eye
What’s pretending is it right
Eye for order a hand for what’s in line
Couldn’t follow, couldn’t write

Oh, I try to
What if we give it away?

And our life is fine here
Stitch it on your tie here

Here’s the trailer, Tom
A year has come and gone
We’re not moving was it right
Take the order sew it on your tie
We couldn’t follow, couldn’t try

Oh, I try to
What if we give it away?

What if we give it away?

Take a turn, take a turn
Take our fortune, take our fortune

They called the clip a two-headed cow
Your hate clipped and distant, your luck, pilgrimage
Rest assured this will not last, take a turn for the worst
Your hate clipped and distant, your luck a two-headed cow
The pilgrimage has gained momentum
Take a turn, take a turn
Take our fortune, take our fortune

Speakin’ in tongues, it’s worth a broken lip
Your hate clipped and distant, your luck, pilgrimage
Rest assured this will not last, take a turn for the worst
Your hate clipped and distant, your luck a two-headed cow
The pilgrimage has gained momentum
Take a turn (take a turn), take a turn (take a turn)
Take our fortune (take a turn), take our fortune

Pilgrimage, pilgrimage

Speakin’ in tongues, it’s worth a broken lip
Your hate clipped and distant, your luck
Rest assured this will not last, take a turn for the worst
Your hate clipped and distant, your luck two-headed
The pilgrimage has gained momentum
Take a turn (take a turn), take a turn (take a turn)
Take our fortune (take a turn), take our fortune

Long gone, intuition to assume are gone when we try
Dream of a living jungle in my way back home when we die

West of the fields, west of the fields, west of the fields, west of the fields
Long gone, long gone, long gone, long gone. West of the fields

Dreams of Elysian, to assume are gone when we try
Tell now what is dreaming
When we try to listen with your eyes oversimplify

West of the fields, west of the fields, west of the fields, west of the fields
Long gone, long gone, long gone, long gone. West of the fields

The animals, how strange. Try, try to stick it in
The animals, how strange. Try, try to stick it in

Dreams of Elysian, to assume are gone when we try
Tell now what is dreaming when we try
Listen through your eyes when we die

West of the fields, west of the fields, west of the fields, west of the fields
Long gone, long gone, long gone, long gone. West of the fields

West of the fields, west of the fields, west of the fields, west of the fields
Long gone, long gone, long gone, long gone. West of the fields
