    Well, now, don't you tell me to smile
    You stick around I'll make it worth your while
    My number's beyond what you can dial
    Maybe it's because we're so versatile
    Style, profile, I said
    It always brings me back when I hear, "ooh, child!"
    From The Hudson River out to the Nile
    I run the marathon to the very last mile
    Well, if you battle me I feel reviled
    People always sayin' my style is wild
    You've got gall, you've got guile
    Step to me I'm a rap-o-phile
    If you want to battle you're in denial
    Comin' from Uranus to check my style
    Go ahead, put my rhymes on trial
    Cast you off into exile

    Intergalactic, planetary, planetary, intergalactic
    Intergalactic, planetary, planetary, intergalactic

    Jazz and A.W.O.L, that's our team
    Step inside the party, disrupt the whole scene
    When it comes to beats, well, I'm a fiend
    I like my sugar with coffee and cream
    Well, I gotta keep it going keep it going full steam
    Too sweet to be sour to nice to be mean
    Well, on the tough-guy style I'm not too keen
    Trying to change the world, I'm going to plot and scheme
    Mario C. likes to keep it clean
    Gonna shine like a sunbeam
    Keep on rappin', 'cause that's my dream
    Thank Moe Dee for 'Sticking to Themes'
    Now when it comes to envy y'all is green
    Jealous of the rhyme and the rhyme routine
    Another dimension, new galaxy
    Intergalactic, planetary

    Intergalactic, planetary, planetary, intergalactic

    We're from the family tree of old school hip-hop
    Kick off your shoes and relax your socks
    The rhymes are spread just like a pox
    'Cause the music is loud like an electric shock
    I am known to do the wop
    Also known for the Flintstone Flop
    Tammy D gets biz on the crops
    Beastie Boys known to let the beat
    Mmm, drop!
    Now when I wrote graffiti my name was Slop
    If my rap's soup, my beats is stock
    Step from the table when I start to chop
    I'm a lumberjack DJ Adrock
    If you try to knock me you'll get mocked
    I'll stir fry you in my wok
    Your knees'll start shakin' and your fingers pop
    Like a pinch on the neck of Mr. Spock

    Another dimension, another dimension
    Another dimension, another dimension
    Another dimension, another dimension

  • Jtothec from BelgiumCorrection! Roger Troutman did not use a vocoder, he used a Talkbox. Roger mastered that instrument like no other. The talkbox and vocoder may sound the same, however ... they are 2 different things. A vocoder is somebody singing in the microphone, and that microphone is plugged into a synth. What you hear, is the output of the synth. The talkbox is the sound of the synth blasted out of a speaker, which is attached to a tube, which you put into your mouth. Your mouth is then used as a speakerbox, and you can record that sound through a microphone. So a vocoder is easy to use, whereas a Talkbox requires some practice to pronounce the words correctly, because of the tube being in your mouth. Excessive practice of the talkbox can lead to headaches or your teethfillings popping out. No joke. So the talkbox is pretty hardcore. Check out YouTube and type in Talkbox vs vocoder, for sure there are tons of videos explaining that. Cheers!
  • Matt from WisconsinIn the music video on the word "green" during the lyric "when it comes to envy, ya'll is green," the green screen effect drops out and reveals the green screen in the background for a split second.
