These peoples try to fade me!

Coach Z's got money, but not much
Coach Z's got money, but not much
Coach Z's got money, but not much
I could use a dollar, I could use a couple bucks

I'm so oldschool (one two one two)
They tore the school down! (one two one two)
Where my lasers at?
Where my lasers at, y'all?
Where my lasers at? (Where my lasers at?)
Where my lasers at, y'all?

Where my lasers at?
All the peoples try to tell me where my lasers at
And your mother tried to show me all the laser crabs
And I got a bunch of types, a bunch of laser dabs

{makes laser gun noises}

These peoples try to fade me!
(I can't handle it!)
C-c-c-call me on my cell phone!
(I get busy!)
These peoples try to fade me!
(I can't handle it!)
C-c-c-call me on my cell phone!
(I get busy!)

I got to see the sweet doctor! (I'm Dr. Sweet!)
I got to see the sweet doctor! (I'm Dr. Sweet!)
I got the grown-up beats! (I'm Dr. Sweet!)
I got the grown-up beats! (I'm Doctor-doctor-doctor Beats!)

Will flow and/or freak for food (from the music video)

These peoples try to fade
These peoples

These peoples try to fade
These peoples
These peoples
These peoples drop the BAAEERRRMM!

I can flow (one two one two)
I can freak (one two one two)
Uhh... I can freak and flow at the same time
