The Mask

Written by Daniel Dumile, Dennis Coles and Brian Burton

Head on straight, mask on crooked
Exit stage left, with the cash gone took it
Off like a coochie, if it was a bit doofy
He tried to get screwy, with that two for you
One, two, for me G, cut the cranky attitude
Wet ’em like a handkerchief, on a stanky fatter dude
Whether you’s a rapper, or a dang sanger
Once you in, there’s only one way out, like a gang banger
With a new crew key chain and street name
What set do he claim for fame, peep game
Just to keep feta and stay dip
You need it like a letter, or better a get away whip
This old thing’s rusted, encrusted
As the gold rings, the old king’s busted
Plan to end global starvation and fat her
Now what in tarnation did I go and do that fer?
Stuff happens, like getting snuff for tough tit rappin’
See I told them enough, quit your yappin’
The same applied to any and all chumps
The only question he has for y’all, is how many lumps?
Three or four, either or
Mon cheri amore, so why you need your heater for?
The super villain slid in your party for free
Born an MC, get outta here kid, you bother me
The day I took my mask off
My face was missin’ for two days
For the record G, came back a year later
Whole new identity, Tony Stark’s pedigree
My money green like my nickname was celery
Who was Ghost? Who flashed this toast?
Never wore sheets, but bulletproof coats
Oh no the fans cried, for the mask back on
Told ’em Ghost is dead, he return at the crack of dawn
Few years from now him and his pals before the Jetsons ever arrived
He’ll be back summer time two thousand and five
With a half a face iron
The other half water, looked like alien science
In the summertime you can see the face boil
But the other side I keep blue, with the Pennzoil
You mad loyal, when the wintertime come
I gets stuck ’cause my brain all numb
Like I ate a thousand icy’s and frozen Pepsi’s
Aquaman’s pops can’t water check me
Disrespect me, indirectly
I seen his feet and they both lefty, he steppin’ half correctly
As I storm the globe, and terrorize the planet with a Bill Clinton mask
And them play school handles
Me and Doom, always be the best, on the landing
Super heroes for life until our souls vanish
