Once upon a time in a distant past
When people wore Kani
And lived life fast
There was a little lady
Who I heard about
While I was sporting my Adidas
With the shoestrings out
I remember when
We would go out everyday
With my boom box
Rockin "Walk This Way"
Back then
Life was all about the break dance
And homies trying to paint a picture
Using spray cans
Now see this little lady
She used to make me crazy
Driving me like Ms. Daisy
Promising me Mercedes
And I could
Not help but to see dollar signs
I had to make her mine
So I started writing rhymes
But as the clock ticked
She started looking better
Emcees from everywhere
Each one was trying to get her
Common talked about how
He used to love H.E.R.
Check it
Now I'm the one whose
Always thinking of her

I'm in love with hip-hop
(One, two, three, and to the four)
I'm in love with hip-hop
(And it don't stop, hit it!)
I'm in love with hip-hop
(Microphone check, microphone checka)
I'm in love with hip-hop
(Keep on)

Now I was chillin one day
Near the Dearborn Homes
When Mr. Big Stuff
From the late Heavy D came on
And I remember thinking
"Yo, who wrote this song?"
Before I knew it, Joe
I had to sing along
The music had me rockin
At an early age
Run DMC tought me to Walk This Way
Rakim told me to finesse Mahogany
That's why I never got into misogyny
Biz Markie told me how to deal with haters
Disrespect the crew
And you will catch the vapors
But I would rather build
And respect eachother
Cuz X-Clan said "To the East my brother"
Times are getting tougher
But I deal with it
Better days ahead
But the past I miss
Lessons that I've learned
Are in the rhymes I spit
Rhyming all the time
Cuz I'm too legit to quit


Now everybody
Put your hands in the air
And wave 'em
Like you just don't care
And if you believe
In real hip-hop
Somebody say oh ye-ah!
