[Black Thought] From The Never Never Tunnels via satellite Ceremonies be commencing in the candlelight Yo is I is up in the res-in-iduals tonight Absolutely because I'm the kid that's on the mic And I believe it's destiny that I got put in a position to throw lyrics like a shotput Yo no matter the circumstance Thought can always make you dance like you got the heebie-jeebies or a hotfoot The bass is low on the meter, less than zero So while I'm sinning you be spinning like a planet Yo if you dig the shit I'm sayin you'll be deeper Wish for little and your wishes shall be granted We plant the seeds y'all, to grow The Roots y'all And mad knowledge I got, from the archives But now I got a crazy fat question: what ever happened to Leonard Parts One to Five?
Chorus: Black Thought (repeat 2X)
Why'd you ask me that question? (I don't know) Where did Leonard Parts One to Five go? Why'd you ask me that question? (I don't know) Word/Uhh/Yeah/... Where did Leonard Parts One to Five go..
