    Lyrics

    Yeah, uh-huh, underground, never stop y'all
    Underground, K.P. y'all c'mon!

    [Chorus]
    Ain't no stoppin what we done
    Don't give up this fight is won
    There's no way they can hold us down
    Cause with power and strength we gonna take it now
    Take that stand realize the truth
    Knowledge intellect bringin' minds anew
    There's no way they can hold us down
    Cause with power and strength we gonna save you now

    [KRS-One over Chorus]
    Uh-huh
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Uh-huh
    Tell them again, tell them again!
    Uhh
    Get 'em up now, word
    Just get it up now, uh-huh
    ALL OF THE MASSIVE!

    B, R, O, N, X
    See these cars, see these checks, intellect
    See these thugs, ain't no sweat, intellect
    A thousand miles, how do you do it? One step
    Now check out this flow, they wanna be down, but they can't
    Original "Criminal Minded" flow, they just ain't
    ready for the real, ready to peel off the paint
    Your style is fake, the teacher returns to debate
    You the best? That's bull, you questionable
    Highly flexible, wasn't you sexual?
    Now you hardcore? You need to see God more
    I sit on the faculty; you, you sophomore

    [Chorus]

    [KRS-One over Chorus]
    Uhh, get 'em up
    Yeah, get 'em up uhh
    Yeah, uhh, that's right
    That's right uh-huh, tell 'em again
    It go, get 'em up
    Yeah, that's right, uh-huh
    Uh-huh
    Another Kenny Parker exclusive!

    Time to get it, now you did it, tryin' to spit it
    You don't fit it, ask the critics, already did it, skipped the gimmicks
    I don't mimic, metaphysics, you'll admit it, better to live it
    Better to give it, so I spit it every minute so you get it
    My lyric is wicked an' full of culture y'all
    Huh? Battle, nah - get back in your car
    Either you never heard of me or you really wanna get with me
    But as your teacher let me test you for a learning disability
    You feeling me? Cause you can't, get it through your head
    This is, sui-CIDE!! You're better off dead
    Let me not amp you up, cause this style you can't do what
    My stomach can take it and your stomach it'll cramp you up
    This is, breath control, breath control stylee
    I get up all in that ass that (?) heinie
    Try me, back in the days you woulda had sorrow
    Try the teacher today, and you won't see tomorrow cause

    [Chorus]

    [KRS-One over Chorus]
    Uhh, we get 'em up
    Uhh, that's right, get 'em up
    Yeah, uh-huh, get 'em up
    Yeah, ONE MORE TIME NOW!
    Uhh, that's right, get 'em up
    Uh-huh, uh-huh, get 'em up I HEAR YOU
    Uh-huh, I HEAR YOU, WORD UP!
    LOOK AT THIS!

    Like a piss on the streets I exist
    Not the meat but the fish
    Complete the feat when I'm speakin the heat into this
    Witness Kris rippin this
    Don't trip on this, skip ahead if you're ready
    My show medley is deadly
    I'm about a hundred million mic years away
    These players I don't hate, but I'm not here to play
    I hit it all day, all night, all afternoon
    Rock all mics from the days of sassoon
    Where the hell was you? On the corner with rats
    when we was at the LQ, lockin it down and that was that
    Divine speaker, mind keeper, time teacher, time leader
    I'll be sittin in the club by the speaker
    Waitin for you rappers to choke up then I eat ya
    like some prehistoric winged creature, AHHH!
    On your neck, like the American eagle facin East and West
    I be the best, Blastmaster KRS cause

    [Chorus]

    [KRS-One over Chorus]
    We get 'em up
    Uhh, yo, we get 'em up
    Like, YEAH, I SEE IT OVER THERE
    I SEE IT OVER THERE, IT'S.. YEAH IT'S OVER HERE!
    Uhh! Uhh, one more time we get it up
    Yeah, yeah, we get it
    Uhh, uhh, IT'S OVER HERE NOW!
    IT'S OVER HERE NOW! UHH!

    [Chorus]
