  • L.L. Cool J. is hard as hell
    Battle anybody I don't care who you tell
    I excel, they all fail
    I'm gonna crack shells, Double-L must rock the bells

    You've been waitin' and debatin' for oh so long
    Just starvin' like Marvin for a Cool J. song
    If you cried and thought I died, you definitely was wrong
    It took a thought, plus I brought Cut Creator along
    Evened up with E-Love down with the Cool J. force
    Symbolizin' in the rhymin' for the record of course
    I'm a tower full of power with rain and hail
    Cut Creator scratch the record with his fingernail
    Rock the bells

    The king of crowd rockers finally is back
    My voice is your choice as the hottest wax
    True as a wizard, just a blizzard, I ain't taken no crap
    I'm rhymin' and designin' with your girl in my lap
    The bass is kickin' always stickin' cause you like it that way
    You take a step because it's def and plus it's by Cool J.
    Cut Creator on the fader, my right-hand man
    We rock the bells so very well cause that's the name of this jam
    Rock the bells

    Some girl's will like this jam and some girls won't
    Cause I make a lot of money and your boyfriend don't
    L.L. went to hell, gonna rock the bells
    All you washed up rappers want to do this well
    Rock the bells

    Now I'm world-wide known, whether you like it or not
    My one man band is Cut Creator a.k.a. Philpot
    He'll never skip it, only rip it when he's on the fader
    What's my DJ's name, Cut Creator
    Now you know the episode who's on the wheels
    He'll drive the cross fader like a cut mobile
    So precise with a slice that you know he's greater
    What's my DJ's name, Cut Creator
    Now you know, what do you know, Earl roles the weed
    I go to the store and get Old Gold
    So all you crabby lookin' nappy headed girls get back
    Cause there's a ten to one chance that you might get smacked
    Rock the bells

    The bells are circulatin' the blood in your veins
    Why are girlies on the tip, L.L.'s your name
    Cut Creator's good, Cool J. is good-good
    You bring the wood pecker, I'll bring the wood
    The bells are wippin' and rippin' at your body and soul
    Why do you like Cool J., we like rock and roll
    Cause it ain't the glory days with Bruce Springsteen
    I'm not a virgin so I know I'll make Madonna scream
    You hated Michael and Prince all the way, ever sense
    If their beats were made of meat, then they would have to be mince
    Rock the bells

    So listen to the lines of rhyme, I rhyme on time
    He'll cut the record in a second, make your DJ look blind
    So all you jerry-curl suckers wearin' high-heel boots
    Like ballerinas, what I mean is you're a fruit-loop troop
    All you gonna-be(s), want to-be(s), when will you learn
    Want to be like Cool J., you gotta wait your turn
    Some suckers don't like me, but I'm not concerned
    Six-g (s) for twenty minutes is the pay I earn
    I'm growin' and glowin' like a forest blaze
    Do you like Michael Jackson, we like Cool J.
    That's right, I'm on the mic with the help of the bells
    There's no delayin' what I'm sayin' as I'm rockin' you well
