  • Once again it's time to buy more soul
    A flavor you will savor in your soul
    Wax is distributed and then sold
    So watch it turn, bring your next of kin soul
    P.A. Mase has rocked it on the console
    Scream real hard until you blow your tonsils
    Bang-oh-bang until you burn your shoe soles
    Cause you are now dancing to the new soul

    Live is the motion of the soul step
    Set the exposure to my one step
    This scene'll last to the next step
    All those in favor take a big step
    True to the Soul, we'll never back step
    In sense to that, we don't half step
    Just as a reminder from the last step
    Negative ones are lost in footsteps

    Levels we've set will never go down
    Competitions commence the step down
    Those involved with peace who know the Soul's down
    Can see that the Soul has got a new sound
    Dance until you find yourself a new part
    If you don't then I'll give you the True part
    When received you'll see the real small part
    Of the new way is no part at all

    Pos and Dove is rarely caught not dressed in peace
    Movements always walking round now stressing peace
    When this biter should know true in peace
    Instead they cause violence and shoot out beef
    Still we are professing to be on a roll
    Public cause this party going on the road
    And if you crave sex, drugs and rock'n'roll
    Sent by the Quest, Jungle and De La Soul

    Give 'em a taste, Mase Writer/s: David Jolicoeur, Kelvin Mercer, Patrick Patterson, Paul Huston, Steve Scipio, Vincent Mason
