[Verse 1] Quiet as a kitten Reply as silent as a Rafael-given instrument for stickin' Or maybe riot as a lion Would he tie in tiger for attention? Tiggers and Poohs, niggas in jewels Mr. Opulent Christopher Robinson too Reversal like? When that predetermined term expires on a turtle's life What of Korea, are you scared? Or is something not there, like a Welsh rabbit full of hairs Animal farms and imaginary bears The body is a house like a kangaroo pouch Or an oyster-hoisted cow over crescent moons As it looms low in the night sky Platoons of coons stand ready for the drive-by Steady as the medley booms from the Akai Affirm as in ?aye aye? Like it the second Like a junior, like a third, like a eye Like I observe from the view of a bird as it fly high Sitting heavy like spaghetti in the belly of a wise guy Who let these G's out the PI STY?

[Verse 2] Quiet as a mouse in the House of God In the jaws, like Terrence in the mouths of mobs Ripping it to pieces like a picture and a preacher If a cricket was a speaker It's its own chicken bones on the garbage can top Ugly mother freakers is predator opposite on top of it to make it fox So if similar appeal, administer the seal to make it real Elephant time but never mind Half-ton gorillas in admittance, they'll never find Hungry as a hippopotamus Gobble it 'til your bottom and your body is as wobbly as Skrillex Eeyores and Piglets, blind bats nailing tails to a riblet Time only limited if you make it Blind rats nails hold tales of Unseeing Eye selves Out is out, so they only seeing thy shells Ghost Dog? Oh, lord? These are?
[Hook 2] Hey, they're not dumb I ain't smart just cause I got thumbs, what, say what? Hey hey, just cause I got one That don't mean I'm better cause they got none Say what, say what say what?
[Verse 3] The butcher says to the bovines You're all just pastrami when it's showtime Cowboy co-signs, attack the cat samples Own worst enemies Chop down the trees, we need the ax handles Like a heel in a sandal saying ?hell no? Or you trapped like the yells of a nail in the shell-toe Clever as a fishbowl on a sailboat Landlocked as a ham hock on a railroad Sandbox by the swimming pool Two times as clever as a fishing school Pills for the pressure Broken seals on the pills for the pleasure If you feeling ill, whatever Animal farm, you're all dumb Tickle ?em with your articulated thumb A tapeworm will never play the drums, but um These are? These are?
[Outro] Hey hey, just cause I got one That don't mean I'm smart cause they got none What, what? Am I not an animal cause I got thumbs? That don't make me smart cause they got none, say what? What, what? Here we come Am I not an animal cause I got thumbs, say what? Say what, say what?
