Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Intro (x2)
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Well I beat a bad rap when I skip a soul trap
   Just trippin' and laughin' at the crap
   Dap is what I get the best skins that I hit
   You know we rock the fuckin' joint and we split
   Singin' an ryhmin's what I'm better for
   When I describe I'm a scribe with a metaphor
   I use a simile lightly 'cuz that shits played
   The common way most ryhmes are made, ya know
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   I rock like this I flow like that
   But all those comparisons are just that
   Kickin' different styles I'll be right here
   Today, tomorrow, next week and next year
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   I always say what I feel and that is a promise
   Nothing in life is above being honest
   Sauna is cool compared to being on stage
   But that's how it's gotta go in the stone age
   The fame in my game I name rapture
   Like a polished rock I'll make it shine for sure
   Word is that I've travelled become unravelled
   I been around the world baby gimme an apple
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   I'll be your boogie man rather than son-of-sam
   What I am is what I am
   Though we don't have too long to love a day a night
   We only love those who, love us right back
---> Play Chorus over:
   The kid is smart the kid is clever
   Stompin' in jack-o-lantern's weather
   Backpack strapped 'cuz the world is cold
   Headphones pumpin' don't ya know
   The kid is smart the kid is clever
   Stompin' in jack-o-latern's weather
   Rocks his hood and playes it mellow
   While maple leaves change into yellow
---> Play Intro (x2)
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   And oh shit damn honey at it again
   Tryin' to beat my high score since the age of ten
   See my high score flash on the back glass
   I was malcontented Doug in gifted class
   Now here's the deal we came to heal we gonna rock in Rio
   Oh no it's not a joke it's how we feel
   Put to test like a Sugar Ray scientist
   I'm always dancing in my Sunday best
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   I'm betting on my bliss and my path is lit' see
   The microphone is live and I'm rockin' my body
   Smooth like Reggie Miller in an airborne freeze frame
   Funky like the kung-fu that can put you to shame
---> Play Chorus over:
   The kid is smart the kid is clever
   Stompin' in jack-o-lantern's weather
   Backpack strapped 'cuz the world is cold
   Headphones pumpin' don't ya know
   The kid is smart the kid is clever
   Stompin' in jack-o-latern's weather
   Rocks his hood and playes it mellow
   While maple leaves change into yellow
---> Play Riff 3 (x1)
---> Play Riff 3 over:
   I'm like hey wait a minute
   Give a check on two then I'm ready to begin it
   With a boom boom bap coming outta your trunkies
   Give a fat shout out to the Phunk Junkeez
---> Play Ending Riff a over:
   Striken like a cancer taken chances
   But I love to see the girl windin' like the belly dancer
   Standin' up front with a tight stomach showin
   Me on stage singin, flowin
   We just kickin' it live we just kickin' it live
   'Cuz if you can't kick it live you gonna die
   'Fraid so punk so quit talkin' junk
---> Play Ending Riff b over:
   You need a live show like a ball player needs a dunk
