  • Crack open the good times
    On a street corner busting rhymes
    But you fell between the lines

    They all laugh, become a joke
    Am I crazy baby let's all hope
    For narrow halls, crunching drums
    I've got the sweets sugar but that's all

    Tell me what it's worth
    Tell me what it's worth

    So tell us that we're spelling everything wrong
    Negroes turn a blueish gray when they're dead
    Well that's funny 'cause I've just turned bright red
    Red, red, red

    Kill, kill, kill when everything starts to suck
    Drowning all your sins boy well I guess that's bad luck
    Or the fact that your race is full of shit
    I've got the sweets sugar but that's it

    Tell me what it's worth
    Tell me what it's worth, whoa, whoa

    Clean your blades and keep swinging
    Don't stop till the red runs out
    Till no more joy pours out of your mouth

    Tell me what it's worth
    (Don't, don't stop till the red runs out)
    Tell me what it's worth
    (Don't, don't stop till the red runs out)

    Tell me what it's worth
    (Don't, don't stop till the red runs out)
    Tell me what it's worth
    Whoa, whoa
