Verse 1
Yo another day
Another forty nine cents
Verse 2
Mr., Mr., why you always tryin' to take all our money
Verse 3
Because I am the government
And you have to pay
Verse 4
Stop tryin' to take our money
Verse 5
Yo, you gotta bust this
We want justice
From public enemy number one
To can't trust this
Verse 6
Like F Jim or Hyatt
Because we're sick and fuckin' tired
Of being mistreated by the undefeated
Power to the seat that can't be beat
Probably gone is the head that make Clinton defeat
Do all the talkin'
Plus crooked walkin'
Blind to the fact
That the enemy is stalking
Ways for days
Search United States quite
Were not a full power
Cause the racial riot
In my neighborhood
We attempt to kill each other
Politics said fuck power to the brother
Be strong be righteous
Don't be no sinister
I got the word from bro. minister (minister)
Farrakhan speaks
And so does Muhammad
The days of Ramagon is
Protect you can harm it
My statement is the fact
To the highest degrees
Flavor works this style, yo can't touch me

Verse 10
Yo, some seek stardom
And forgot all about Harlem
Yo, fugess
Rock the house!
Verse 11
Now I don't know
But tell me what you gonna do
When the ending of time comes near
What ever you do
It's gotta be funky
I am not tryin'
To put your life in full of fear
By the favor skies
We are flying
Truth we be buying
To buy out all the lying
How you livin'
Were you livin'
Were you livin'
It ain't got to be like that
By doing the givin'
It was your own choice
Scratched up your Rolls Royce
Every dumb friend you had
Was glad to rejoice
And turned into a nut
Trying to make the pockets fatter
One shoot in the head
Everybody scatter
The worlds gonna
Catch on fire
A funeral buyer
Is a hard heads people desire
Every night you tryer
You turn into a cryer
Who was just in bed
Thinkin' higher, higher
Friends will always move
Till you get the bob wire
Ever common law gets a flat tire
Verse 12
What kind a power we got
Soul power
