  • Ticking like a time bomb
    Where did you come from
    Nowhere that you can run
    That is all done
    Your eyes are getting salty
    It's not my fault
    He's gonna need assistance
    That's the difference

    Boom! Vato loco has stepped in the room
    Zoom! Now your homies will be singing this tune
    Step back pinche colero 'cause we're gonna explode
    We got the place surrounded
    Don't be a hero

    Bet you didn't think that we thought of that
    Came up with that shit way back
    Innovation ruling the nation
    The dance hall's back
    What you know about that, say

    Let me introduce you
    To the excitable crew
    This is just how we do
    Ticking like a time bomb
    Watch me go off
    Let me introduce you
    To the excitable crew
    This is just how we do
    Ticking like a time bomb
    Watch me go off

    Ay ay ay ay
    You know how we roll
    Know I'm broke
    And know I've been lonely
    Know, you know we've been down

    I'm rocking on the mic
    Saying things that you like
    We won't let you down
    We have the system of sound
    The excitable crew
    We do this with you
    The innovator came to stay
    So what you gonna do

    This is what we want
    And I say
    This is what we need
    G-g-go back in memory
    To the time baby
    A universe of hard core
    So never stop living
    Sing

    Let me introduce you
    To the excitable crew
    This is just how we do
    Ticking like a time bomb
    Watch me go off
    Let me introduce you
    To the excitable crew
    This is just how we do
    Ticking like a time bomb
    Watch me go off

    I remember back in the day
    We would work hard
    Getting down our parts
    There was no crew
    Me and you
    Planning out what to do
    Work hard
    Play hard
    Getting down our parts
    I remember back in the day

    Let me introduce you
    To the excitable crew
    This is just how we do
    Ticking like a time bomb
    Watch me go off
    Let me introduce you
    To the excitable crew
    This is just how we do
    Ticking like a time bomb
    Watch me go off Writer/s: AARON WILLS, DOUGLAS MARTINEZ, NICHOLAS HEXUM, TIM MAHONEY
