"Relax your mind, let your conscience be free
and get down to the sounds of EPMD
Well you should keep quiet while the MC rap
but if you tired -- then go take a nap!!
Or stay awake and watch the show I take
because right now -- I'm bout to shake'n'bake
The E-R-I-C-K is my name, I spell
Thanks to the clientele, yo I rock well
I'm not an MC who talkin all that junk
About who can beat who, soundin like a punk
I just get down and I go for mine
Say 'check one-two', and run down the line"
