    Brothers and sisters!
    Brothers and sisters, I don't know what this world is coming to!"

    [Jigga] Whassup Missy? Timbo!
    [Missy] This is.. another.. Missy
    [Jigga] Hip-Hop! Yes!
    [Missy] Elliott, exclusive

    Yes, uhh
    One for the butters, I came from the gutter
    No I came from my mother but y'all know what I mean
    Hov' is here to stay like permanent crease in your jeans
    Me and Missy be the new +Tag Team+
    "Whoomp! There It Is"
    We like, Rae & Ghost, A.G. and Showbiz
    We "Public Enemy #1," our "Uzi Weighs a Ton"
    This is our house, RUN! [laughing]

    What happened to those good old days? {HA?}
    When hip-hop, was so much fun
    Ohh, house parties in the summer y'all (c'mon)
    And no one, came through with a gun
    It was all about the music y'all
    It helped.. to relieve some stress {HA?}
    Ohh, we was under one groove y'all (y'all)
    So much love {HA?} between North and West

    [Chorus: Missy Elliott]
    Go back in the day
    British Knights and gold chains
    Do the prep and cabbage patch
    And wear your laces all fat
    Back in the dayyyyyyyy, hey hey
    Hip-Hop has chaaaanged

    Remember when we used to battle? (uh-huh)
    On the block {HA?} before the lights came on
    Ohh! Mama said we would be straight A kids (c'mon)
    If we did our homework, like we knew those songs
    Salt-N-Pepa, Rakim, and P.E. {HA?}
    D.M.C, and Heavy D
    Yes! Daddy Kane, Slick Rick too (oh-OOH!)
    MC Lyte ("Paper Thin") opened, doors for you and me, c'mon


    Young! J. Bizzy, let's do it again nigga
    Grew up the way it oughta be
    From day KRS-One all the way up to "Nineteen Naughty Three"
    To M.O.P., we "Cold as Ice"
    Nigga we rock it from the "Dre Day" to the Suge Knight
    So fuck Chuck Phillips and Bill O'Reilly
    If they try to stop hip-hop, we all gon' rally nigga
    Post Biggie and 'Pac I gotta hold down the city
    Make a nigga wanna 'holla' like Missy, but fuck it
    Just let a nigga MC
    The best rapper alive, unquestionably
    If you rip on your +EP+ you gonna need an +MD+
    So "You Gots to Chill" cause I "Kill at Will"
    like solid water dude; y'all niggaz don't get it
    "Kill at Will," solid water? Ice Cube
    Ha ha, that's how hip-hop has evolved
    Jay-Z's for President, I'm namin Ra as the National God

    Me and Jigga, Jigga J-J-Jay-Hova
    I rocks the mic right whether I'm pissy drunk or sober
    Misdemeanor fo'-finger ringer I'm stupid FRESH
    I've been hot since LL rocked the Kangol HAT
    Yes yes, the yes yes, the yes y'alln
    C'mon... AW YEA, AW YEA
    Okay, me, that nigga Jigga, fresh dressed in the mornin
    C'mon... AW YEA, AW YEA


    [ad libs and whistling]

    I wanna, go back in, time (let's go)
    Feels like I, I wanna, go back in, time
    Feels like I (Y'all remember "Self Destruction"?)
    I wanna, go back in, time
    (Where all the rap artists got on a record together?)
    Feels like I, I wanna, go back in, time
    (I used to love them days, no tension, let's go!!)
