The Lyrics

Big ups to my dogs Rice Cube and Watt Daddy! This song makes no sense, so don't bother trying to make heads or tails of it, you'll only hurt yourself
Watt (watt...watt...watt)
D (d...d...d...)
A (a...a...a...)
D (d...d...d...)
D (d...d...d...)
Y (Y...Y...Y...)
Watt...Daddy!


(Spoken)
Ah They can write if they want to, they can leave their songs behind
Cause your friends must laugh and if they don't laugh
Well they can kiss his behind
I say, they can go where they want to, just to see what they will find
And then they act like they come from out of this world
Make the sane ones lose their minds,
and they can write

They can write if they want to, they can leave their songs behind
Cause your friends must laugh and if they don't laugh
Well they can kiss his behind
I say, they can go where they want to, just to see what they will find
And then they act like they come from out of this world
Make the sane ones lose their minds,
and they can write

Rice!

Ah they can flow when they want to, songs are skilled and so are they
And they can post real neat 'bout the broth that we eat
and confuse us with the things they say
I say they can drink if want to, but their beer will always spill
And Watt can say "Whoa dude!" with a surfer attitude
And Rice can act like Buffalo Bill

I say they can write, they can write- lyrically out of control
They can write, they can write- Asian man's got some Seoul (groan...)
They can write, they can write- the bathroom really is on the right
They can write, they can write- put it up on Am-I-Ri....ight
They can write
Yes, they can write
Ah yes they can write

R (r...r...r...)
I (i...i...i...)
C (c...c...c...)
E (e...e...e...)
Q (q...q...q...)
B (b...b...b...)
Rice (Rice...Rice...Rice...)
Cube! (Cube...Cube...Cube...)

(Syncronos, speaking over the music) Hahaha! Did you get it?! Rice Q-B!
Now I'll bet all the silly people are saying "I didn't know Rice Cube was a quarterback!"

They can write if they want to, and their songs will turn out fine
And they can eat English toffee, write of 'Instant Coffee'
and a 'White Eyed Male Fruit Fly' (What the heck!?)
They can write if they want to, they can leave their songs behind
Cause your friends must laugh and if they don't laugh
Well they can kiss his behind

I say they can write, they can write- lyrically out of control
They can write, they can write- Asian man's got some Seoul (groan...)
They can write, they can write- the bathroom really is on the right
They can write, they can write- put it up on Am-I-Ri....ight
They can write
Yes, they can write
Ah yes they can write
On Am-I-Ri...ight!
Oh, it's quite a sight!
Yeah, those two can write!
Every day and night!
Oh yes, they can write
Oh yes, they can write!
I said, they can write!
No, really...they can write!
But can they READ!?
