  • Let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo
    Let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo

    It's never old school, all brand new
    So everybody catch the bugaloo flu
    Not like a fever, not like a cold
    But the beats are clear, the rhymes are bold
    So don't see a doctor or see a nurse
    Just listen to the music, first things first
    First of all, get off the wall
    It's time to party so have a ball
    We slowed it on down so get the hell up
    Like a volcano, I'll erupt
    We got determination, bass and highs
    White Castle fries only come in one size
    What you see is what you get
    And you ain't seen nothing yet

    So let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo
    Let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo

    I do not sing but I make a def song
    You could live your whole life, and I hope you live long
    On the Gong Show, we won't get gonged
    We're the Beastie Boys, not Cheech and Chong
    Strong as an ox, fresh out the box
    The crowd is so live, they're coming in flocks
    And when we go on, the crowd goes off
    It's all hard rock, there's nothing soft

    Let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo
    Let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo

    COD

    So let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo
    And let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo

    We don't only rock the house but we'll house we rock
    We don't stroll but we roll straight to the top
    MCA, Adrock, Mike D makes three
    And we can do it like this in the place to be
    When I'm recorded, you'll be rewarded
    I know my song is def 'cause you all applauded
    Not PCP or LSD, just me, Mike D, in the place to be
    This is not free, you must pay a fee
    Cash on delivery like a COD

    So let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo
    Let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo

    The beat is slow in order to dance
    I wanna hear I do's and no I can't
    First you move your legs and then your arms
    It's not fast and nervous, this dance is calm
    It's truly stable and you ought to be able
    To dance to the record when it's on the turntable

    So let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo
    Let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo
    Let it flow, let yourself go
    Slow and low, that is the tempo
    Let it flow, let yourself go
    , Slow and low that is the tempo
