This is a journey into sound.

A journey which along the way

will bring to you new color, new dimension, new values.

When all is ready, I throw this switch.

♪ 'Cause ain't nothin' but sweat inside my hand

So I dig into my pocket all my money spent

So I dig deeper but still coming up with lint

So I start my mission leave my residence

Thinkin' how could I get some dead presidents? ♪

I need money I used to be a stick-up kid

So I think of all the devious things I did

- One, two, three, four!

I used to roll up this is a hold up ain't nothing funny

Stop smilin' be still don't nothing move but the money

But now I learned to earn 'cause I'm righteous

I feel great so maybe I might just

Search for a nine to five if I strive

Then maybe I'll stay alive

So I walk up the street whistlin' this

Feeling out of place 'cause man do I miss

A pen and a paper a stereo a tape of

Me and Eric B and a nice big plate of

Fish which is my favorite dish

But without no money it's still a wish

♪ 'Cause I don't like to dream about gettin' paid

So I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made

So now's a test to see if I got pull

Hit the studio 'cause I'm paid in full

- [Woman] By George!

Even London grooves!
