Chorus (fade out on Cadd9)
I've been all around the world I've been a new sensation But it doesn't really matter in this ge-generation The sophomore slump is an uphill battle And someone said that ain't my scene 'Cause they need a new song Like a new religion Music for the television I can't do the long division Someone do the math For the record label puts me on the shelf up in the freezer Got to find another way to live the life of leisure So I drop my top Mix and I mingle Is everybody ready for the single and it goes
Ha-la-la-la-la Now listen closely to the verse I lay Ha-la-la-la-la It's all about the wordplay Ha-la-la-la-love The wonderful thing it does Because, because I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's Yeah, the Mister A to Z They say I'm all about the wordplay
When it's time to get ill, I got your remedy For those who don't remember me Well, let me introduce you to my style I try to keep a jumble And the lyrics never mumble When the music's makin' people tongue-tied You want a new song Like a new religion Music for the television I can't do the long division Someone do the math For the people write me off like I'm a one-hit wonder Gotta find another way to keep from goin' under Pull out the stops Got your attention I guess it's time again for me to mention the wordplay
Ha-la-la-la-la Now listen closely to the verse I lay Ha-la-la-la-la It's all about the wordplay Ha-la-la-la-love The wonderful thing it does Because, because I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's Yeah, the Mister A to Z They say I'm all about the wordplay
I built a bridge across the stream my consciousness It always seems to be a flowin' But I don't know which way my brain is goin' Oh the ryhmin' and the timin' Keeps the melodies inside me And they're comin' Till I'm running out of air Are you prepared to take a dive into the deep end of my head Are you listening to a single word I've said
Ha-la-la-la-la Listen closely to the words I say Ha-la-la-la-la I'm stickin' to the wordplay Ha-la-la-la-love The wonderful thing it does Because, because I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's Yeah, the Mister A to Z They say I'm all about the wordplay
Ha-la-la-la-la I'm all about the wordplay Ha-la-la-la-la Stickin' with the wordplay Ha-la-la-la-love I love the wonderful thing it does Because, because the ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's fall back in love For the Mister A to Z They say is all about the wordplay
