    And since we're not your average everyday rap band,

    Yo, Pianoman, playhowyalike

    Just act a fool, it's okay if you drool,
    'Cause everybody's gonna strip, and jump in the pool,
    [Wait a minute, wait a minute, don't take your clothes off yet, not yet,
    Wait 'til we get home]
    Now if you wear corrective shoes and you got big bunyons,

    Straight hair, curled, casual and glamor,
    A shy girl, or loud like a bama.
    From Connecticut, or from Louisiana,
    Bad table ettiqutte, too much chatter,

    Very well spoken, or real bad grammer,
    I minority token, a brother in the slammer,
    A free civilian with a house in Santa Ana,
    If ya got a million, and live in Atlanta,

    If you got a weak bladder, or can't climb a ladder,
    What we're sayin' is, it really doesn't matter,
    I need a word that sounds like "atta"
    Slipped on a peel of banana,

    Doowutchyalike.
    [Yeah, cool, gettin' stupid, once again, you got the sound of the
    Underground. Baby dope is in the house.]
    [Boyyy!!]

    [Are we puttin' things in check, Baby D?]
    [Too stupid check]
    [I'm wit' it. Yo Dave, let's show 'em some old school]

    Vanessa Williams, ooh, you're so divine,
    Just wanted to put your name in my rhyme,
