    Lyrics

    Here's my philosophy, livin' in a penitentiary
    Brothers all on the corner
    Tryin' to make believe
    Turn around, ain't got no pot to pee

    Make me mad when I see ya sad
    Can't stand to see ya hussle doin' bad
    But you can't win when your will is weak
    When you're knocked on the ground

    Evil
    Don't you test me
    Evil
    You won't win

    Oh why
    (World)
    Why world
    Do you want me to be so mad? Yeah
    So mad, yeah

    Oh why
    (World)
    Why world
    Do you want me to be so mad? Yeah
    So mad, yeah

    I'm tellin' you the truth
    I hope I'm not being too cruel
    Since you ain't playing by the rules
    I'm 'bout to kick you off your stool

    Evil
    Don't you test me
    Evil
    You won't win

    Oh why, why
    Why world
    Do you want me to be so mad? Yeah
    So mad, yeah

    Why in the world
    (World)
    Why world
    Do you want me to be so mad? Yeah
    Say why

    I am a warrior princess
    I have come from the other sun
    Gather all of your members
    Unite them as one

    Move together in harmony
    Build a bridge, now destroy a bridge
    Eliminate your weakness
    Conquer evil, the demon and live forever together

    Why can't we get along
    And take all the funky tones
    And make up a funky song
    That be bangin' on and on

    Make me mad when I see ya sad
    With the same look ya momma had
    But ya can't win when your will is weak
    But ya get out ya seat

    Oh why, why
    Why world do you want me to be so mad?
    So mad, yeah

    Why in the world
    (World)
    Why world do you want me to be so mad? Yeah
    So mad, yeah

    Why in the world
    (World)
    Why world do you want me to be so mad? Yeah
    So mad, yeah

    Why in the world
    (World)
    Why world do you want me to be so mad? Yeah
    So mad, yeah

    Maybe, maybe, maybe
    Maybe, maybe, maybe
    Oh, why, why in the world? Yeah
    World yeah, world yeah, world yeah

    Bring it all back
    Bring it all back
    Bring it all back
    ...
