  • It's as if the fore fathers
    Gonna trade it for a piece
    They can lick the wound slow
    Like they're from the northeast
    They resist I'm going easy
    Bankin' on the hearsay
    But they all know the man with the co-pay
    Mixed up in the mid, they get the high to low rap
    Its a tight rope, til the rope goes slack
    It'll blow your mind, but it don't get you around,

    I ain't messin' around.
    I ain't messin' around.

    So I got my gold parachute
    Turn one more left turn
    With my chloroform and a Monet
    'fore we can take a long ride down the narrow drive
    And keep ya head down, yeah
    They come and jump in
    Now may I ask to who you reach all the money so I
    Don't sell the van
    Can't find my,
    Can't find my cat's got nine times
    So let the poochie on the record and ya got 'em on the messin' around

    Can we do a re-vote
    Backed by hard-earned job
    It's hard to get to things of my own
    As if I don't think, think, thinkin' up and sippin' on the world
    He was lookin' from the top look out

    Say preach,
    Buy them treats, and this guy he prayed
    Father told them pick them on the fallen tree
    Father picked them off the top
    And so we're getting caught up in the mountain,
    Still no pay check.
    To be found
    I ain't messin' around
    Are ya sorted?
    Are ya sound?
    Are ya sound?
    Are ya sound?
    Are ya sorted? Writer/s: Bradley Joseph Corrigan, Chad Stokes Urmston, Peter Francis Heimbold
