    Tony for mayor.. (x4)

    [Ghostface Killah]
    Catch me in a crisp blue six, deep dish
    Doors is crisp, velour stop at the wrist
    Watch is involved, talk to me Trick Daddy
    I liked the way you tilt ya hat up in that Caddy son,
    Can't believe you the most slept on
    Took a break since the Cuban, niggas lookin' like you just repped wrong
    You done slimmed down a bit, got caught with the hammer
    Steal banners, medical examiners, clocked live hammers
    For real, you a live nigga, rock ya five in ya slippers
    Like them other five guys in ya picture
    Come on, watch, I'm the star of the show, so blow then
    Mothafucka, you ain't blew in three years
    You son of a bitch, that's why I rock the big shit
    Don't forget who you is, nigga, you my little shit
    I will crush you to pieces, stop ya heart from tickin'
    And you mad 'cause you a older clock, couple rocks missin'
    And my Breitling--the band: you can say it's iced lightning
    You don't like him, do you? You wanna fight him
    In fact, I should've put you back, relaxed on the stones
    And copped the two-thousand leather in snow cones
    A bowl of milk almost killed you, ak, you almost drowned in Pops
    I bought another box, I'ma keep it real with you
    And I'ma murder you if ya bitch-ass get on my nerves again

    [Raekwon (as "the watch")]
    Yo, Ghost, you'se a funny nigga
    Turn on the radio, all you hear is X and Jigga
    Ha ha, you vexed, nigga?
    No airplay

    [Ghostface Killah]
    Bet my gat spray

    [Raekwon (as "the watch")]
    Yo, that's hearsay you spray hairspray
    And up North, nigga, you ain't gettin' jailplay

    [Ghostface Killah]
    (How you know?)

    [Raekwon (as "the watch")]
    Yo, it's obvious, Clan's day

    [Ghostface Killah]
    Hold on, let me park my shit,
    Let me find out this nigga barkin' and shit I'm a Don of this shit,
    And you know that shit I wrote with Golden Arms is a hit
    My Wallos show off, go off like an alarm in the six
    Draped in yellow and I'm still poppin'
    My movie life in the hood is like an ill doctrine
    Beat trial with illegal aide, fuck Cochrane
    And if it's on I might blow you if I'm boxed in.. {*echoes*}

    [Raekwon (as "the watch")]
    Yo what's wrong man?
    Yo, yo, yo, what you doin', man?
    Yo, man, chill out, man

    [Ghostface Killah]
    Don't even worry

    [Raekwon (as "the watch")]
    Why you..

    [Ghostface Killah]

    [Raekwon (as "the watch")]
    Come on, son
    We can't.. don't depart us like that, son
    Come on

    [Ghostface Killah]
    I'ma destroy you

    [Raekwon (as "the watch")]
    Come on, man

    [Ghostface Killah]
    You pop too much shit

    [Raekwon (as "the watch")]
    Come on, man, I'm just tellin' you time

    [Ghostface Killah]
    It ain't even like that, you know who bought you
    A nigga's just fuckin' with you, man

    [Ghostface Killah]

    Tony for mayor.. {*repeats to fade*}

    [Outro: Ghostface Killah (Raekwon)]
    Yo, let me tell y'all mothafuckas somethin'
    (Shoot one of those niggas, Lord)
    We could battle for belts, ice (Type shit)
    Whatever the fuck you want to do
    Let me tell y'all somethin'
    This the Theodore Unit, mothafucka
    We takin' the bait of this shit
    That's word to my momma, man
    (Staten Island, nigga, what, nigga?)
    Coke, spoon throwers (Get ya money right)
    (Gotta know how real do this)
    Slew-footed mothafuckas, I pop all y'all niggas
    Y'all niggas is fucked, straight up
    We back in here now, mothafuckas
    It's the fuckin' Unit, you heard
    That's the Theodore Unit
    Y'all mothafuckas better recognize
    Aight? That's my word
    (Yeah, nigga, yeah)
