I wrote this record for when I perform
Lonely nights inside a university dorm
I put pen to paper with the paper to pen
For the times I rock the mic in front of women and men
I get raw like Eddie, rough like Freddy
Kruger with a lugar turning men into spaghetti
I'm like Fats Domino up on Blueberry Hill
Because my rhymes are funky fresh and not run of the mill
Cause like a king has palaces, I'm giving analysis
You can't talk because you're suffering paralysis
Of the mouth, of the lip, of the tongue
Coming to you compliments of a brother named
You can't talk because I'm leaving you speechless
So be quiet, let an educator, teach this
This is new to my producer, so he's in a rege
Yo Mike you control the vinyl, I control the stage

Four score and seven years ago
There were a whole bunch of rappers who were in the know
Four score and seven years later
I dig holes in those rappers like the moon with a crater
Becaues to battle me you're really taking a risk
Cause you're an 8 track tape and I'm a compact disc
Like Tyson drops boxers in rapid succession
That's how I'm dropping MC's in the rapping profession
I'm coming off-like the clothes on a hooker
And I can fly like Jimmy Superfly Snuka
Like the shuttle goes up into outer space
People's hands go up when I enter the place
I don't mean to brag or boast or try to tell you I'm great
But I can rock the microphone like Dorothy Hamill can skate
Yes I can say a funky rhyme like Greg Louganis can dive
Don't have to be saturday night for Young MC to get live
Low and behold-Young MC struck gold
From the rhymes that I've been saying to the young and the old
From the battles I've been having with the smart and the dumb
From the records I've been making with the mic and the drum
You know the other rappers want to play a game with me
They run and hide when they hear the name of Young MC
Like a kid playing tag is how its got to be
So when I start I say ollie ollie oxen free
Yo you could never write a rhyme as strong as this one
So pay attention cause you don't wannamiss one
Of my healthy rhymes, nobody's are healthier
New York, New Jersey, L.A. and Philadelphia
City to city and town to town
Place to place, country to country, cause I get around
Even if you were in prison, you've heard me play
Because the warden had me rocking upon the PA
So when you get out come and see my show
And if you start static, back in you go
Cause coming off is the title and the theme of the jam
And when the rhymes are finally finished people say god damn
