[Butterfly] 
We like the breeze flow straight out of our lids 
Them they got moved by these hard-rock Brooklyn kids 
Us flow a rush when the DJ's boomin classics 
You dig the crew on the fattest hip hop records 
He touch the kinks and sinks into the sounds 
She frequents the fatter joints called undergrounds 
Our funk zooms like you hit the Mary Jane 
They flock to booms man boogie had to change 
Who freaks the clips with mad amount percussion 
Where kinky hair goes to unthought-of dimensions 
Why's it so fly cause hip hop kept some drama 
When Butterfly rocked his light blue-suede Pumas 
What by the cut we push it off the corner 
How was the buzz entire hip hop era? 
Was fresh and fat since they started sayin outie 
Cause funks made fat from right beneath my hoodie 
The puba of the styles like miles and shit 
Like sixties funky worms with waves and perms 
Just sendin chunky rhythms right down ya block 
We be to rap what key be to lock 
 
But 
I'm cool like dat [x7] 
I'm cool...I'm cool... 
 
[Ladybug] 
We be the chocolates taps on my raps 
She innovates at the sweeta cat naps 
He at the funk club with the vibrate 
Them they be crazy down with the ?five plate? 
It can kick a plan then a crowd burst 
Me I be diggin it with s bump verse 
Us we be freakin til dawn blinks an eye 
He gives the strangest smile so I say hi (wassup) 
Who understood yeah understood the plan 
Him heard a beat and put it to his hands 
What I just flip let borders get loose 
How to consume or they'll be just like juice 
If its the shit we'll lift it off the plastic 
The babes'll go spastic 
Hip hop gains a classic 
Pimp playin shock it dont matter I'm fatter 
Ax Butta how I zone (man Cleopatra Jones) 
 
And 
I'm chill like dat [x7] 
I'm chill...I'm chill... 
 
[All] 
Blink..blink..blink..blink..blink..blink..blink.... 
Think..think..think..think..think..think..think... 
 
[Doodlebug] 
We get ya free cause the clips be fat boss 
Them they're the jams and commence to goin off 
She sweats the beat and ask me cause she puffed it 
Me I got crew kids seven and a crescent 
Us cause a buzz when the nickel bags are dealt 
Him thats my man with the asteroid belt 
They catch a fizz from the Mr. Doodle-big 
He rocks a tee from the Crooklyn non-pigs 
The rebirth of slick like my gangsta stroll 
The lyrics just like loot come in stacks and rolls 
You used to find a bug in a box with fade 
Now he boogies up your stage plaits twist or braids 
 
And 
I'm peace like dat [x7] 
I'm Peace 
 
[Butterfly] 
Check it out man I groove like dat 
I'm smmoce like dat 
I jive like dat  
I roll like dat 
 
[Ladybug] 
Yeah I'm thick like dat 
I stack like dat 
I'm down like dat 
I'm black like dat 
 
[Doodlebug] 
Well yo I funk like dat 
I'm fat like dat 
I'm in like dat 
Cause I swing like dat 
 
[Butterfly] 
We jazz like dat 
We freak like dat 
We zoom like dat 
We out...we out...
