    Intro: Lauryn Hill

    Yo, this is the Fugees
    About to take you on a journey
    Into the dimensions of The Booga Basement
    The Basement, word

    Hey yo, one two three! The crew is called Re-Fu-Ge-ee-es
    An if yu come fa tes the rap stylee
    Stop the violence and just bring it on, wiiild

    Verse One: Lauryn Hill

    Hey yo I, feel kind of melancholy people think they really know me
    I keep a wrap about me while I'm driving daddy's Audi
    I pay the toll fighting for my own soul
    Cause the bourgeoise type of mental sucks like a flat comb
    But I be baitin the rebel base to bass distort the EQ
    The devil's wishin they could send me back to Mogadishu
    Cause I've been wild since I was a juvenile
    Afro-centric profile, back when righteous rap was your style
    Now kids are whylin so I ask the bad black
    Boogie bandit, what's the damage, gimme the estimate then
    pray tell me when's the revolution will begin?
    I turn on my TV I check out Farrakhan on CNN see
    I'm like the phantom that's flying like the bird do
    And things you never heard plus I come from the suburbs
    Word to God, I heard you're acting kind of hard
    And you got your skin scarred when they was shootin on the boulevard

    [Lauryn Hill]

    (You got the vocab) I got the vocab
    (Underground got the vocab) You know we got the vocab
    (All my peeps got the vocab) Yeah, we got the vocab
    [Lauryn] Aiyyo Praz, grab the mic and show you got the gift of gab

    Verse Two: Prazwell

    Then cast off from here to Mexico
    You see my four-five-six a-be my Celo
    And when I rest my head is on a pillow
    Be-ba-dee-be, be-dee-be, be-dee-be-bo
    You see the skills I manifest is very tho-rough
    And if you don't believe me ask Freres Ja-cques
    Mmmm, Freres Jacques, Freres Jacques
    A dorme vous? A dorme vous?
    WATCH OUT NOW! When I choose to speak
    I'm forming the cipher fly East to the Five Percenter
    Knowledge is born, to all beginners
    Cast the first stone, if you feel you ain't a sinner, ahh
    Say o-ur father, who art in heaven
    Forgive the foolish rapper for he not know how Fugee be steppin
    Correct and, stopped and kept in, nuff respect to the
    DJ, that be selectin, the type of record ahhh


    (You got the vocab) I got the vocab
    (The click's got the vocab) You know they got vocab

    [Lauryn] Aiyyo Clef grab the mic and show you got the gift of gab

    Verse Three: Wyclef

    Check it out, here we go
    Back in Eighty-TREE, no one wanted to be NAPPY
    I turn on my TV, it's a dreadlock for FREE
    Kill the gimmick
    It's nonsense, it's no sense or value
    a rapper, disaster, nobody ever told me that
    "Roxanne, you don't got to work for money no more!!"... and...
    Back in the days I used to listen to Kool G Rap
    Way back when before guns became gats and
    Run-D.M.C. used to ask Mary was she buggin?
    I loved P.E., they kept me concious of what I was saying
    Afrika Bambaata, Poor Righteous Teacher
    Got within myself so it made me a Five Percenter
    Say La-Di-Da-Di, UHH! we like to party but
    my jam was BDP, with My Philosophy
    Say Grandmaster Flash, MC Melle Mel
    Then LL Cool J came with Rock the Bells!
    See I'm the one for the crew, like a Jew is a Jew
    Like Apollo got the moon, like the men who got the blue
    Like the Fu got the Manchu, Chaka got the Zulu
    Hawaii got the Honolulu
    I got the rap lieu, so skippedy-de-bop-bop you don't stop
    You do the rock-rock from hip-hop through be-bop
    from be-bop to bee-bee

    [Lauryn Hill]
