[Verse – Dave]
You know I never had the fever for the flavor of another
Other than the quotation that I uttered, butter for the nonbelievers,
Leave a spread from Chicago to the Land O’ Lakes
Engine number nine, pilot tryna get my landing straight
But I gotta eat, tryna get my sandwich straight
Leaving bread on the parkay, how that sandwich taste?
Gotta roll, no X, no martyr,
On the terrace of Lorraine, mighty healthy like margarine
Shedd no tears, main squeeze bottle shape body
Spread so fierce, thoroughbred legs so thick
So I went against the grain for the main course
Dinner never came so I’m feeling like main source
A little olive oil for the dipping
And I’m looking at the door as she cleaning off the dishes
I was cooking for four, now they clearing out the kitchen
Just a little food for thought for the niggas and the bitches

[Hook – Chris & Dave]
I never meant to go over your head
But you know I gotta sing my song
Niggas swear hip hop aint dead
But the feeling been dead and gone
So let me blow something back and drink my hen
The show must go on and on my friend
So I’ma keep shining til the spotlight dims
You wanna ride nigga hop on in

[Refrain – Dave]
[Cmon we gon] ri-iii-iide
[Don’t you know] ri-iii-iide
[C’mon we gon] ri-iii-iide
[One more time we gon] ri-iii-iide
[C’mon c’mon]

[Verse – Chris]
I never made a song cry but the beat broke when I struck it
Can I kick it [Yes you can] Well I’ma go in, fuck it
Two tears in a bucket gotta sprinkle a little bit
On the track when I touch it so you feel me like water
For the chocolate [Sweet] make it rain on the beat
Look for cops in ponchos, it aint Weezy Wee
Its ya daily dose of me, Cee, take two of those
And wash it down with the flow, I’m gifted
And I’m turn it into some liquid – assets
The Cash is Clay for the making, never box me in
My corner rehydrate me, kicks Liu Kang
Beat bang can’t out bass me, my “boom kat kat”
Erratic like Art Blakely, crash, splash killer
Camp Crystal Lake ‘em, the flow super ugly
Kinda looking like Jason, now the hoes really love me
Cuz I’m looking like paper, causing precipitation in the strangest places
