    Gotta love it...:-)

    To say rap is not work
    Is ludicrous
    Whoever said it
    Must be new to this
    When you hear me
    You'll compare me
    To a prophet for profit
    Not merely
    Putting words together for
    Recreation
    Each rhyme's a dissertation
    You wanna know my occupation
    I get paid to rock the nation

    The Lyrics:

    Songwriters: DEWESE, MOHANDAS / FLOYD, KING
    I go to work
    Like a doctor
    When I rock the mic
    You got to like
    The way I operate
    I make miracles happen
    Just from rappin'
    I'm so lyrically potent
    And I'm flowin'
    And explodin'
    On the scene mean
    I got the potential
    To make you go
    Then chill
    I got the credentials
    That is of which I chose
    To make a rhyme
    And chill
    Then you know
    I will fulfill
    To make a couple of mill
    As I build a guild
    For all the rappers and skills
    And kill the weak rappers and no thrills
    Hang 'em an ephigy
    If he's a sucker
    Hang 'em to the left of me
    Cause my right hand man
    Is my mic stand and
    The microphone that I own
    And my game plan
    Is keeping at a steady pace
    Ain't no need for a rush
    It ain't no race
    I'ma hit the top
    Just when I wanna
    And it's a matter of time
    And I'm gonna
    Cause I know when to
    Go 'head enter
    The classic moe dee rap
    That sent ya
    Runnin' around
    Holdin' ya head
    Askin' ya homeboy
    Yo man
    You hear what he said
    Another funky rhythm
    Look at ya man
    And give him a high five
    Cause I'm live
    Runnin' around with him
    Telling everybody
    Hanging out on the block
    It's time to wake up
    And check the clock
    Punch it
    I go to work
    I go to work
    I go to work
    Like an architect
    I build a rhyme some times it climbs so erect
    Skyscrapers look like atoms
    Cars electrons rollin' in patterns
    Writing out word after word
    With each letter it becomes visably better
    Cause my foundation built a nation of rappers
    And after I came off vaction
    I came to roam
    The land I own
    And stand alone on the microphone
    Daddy's home
    Open the door playtime is over
    Time to go to work and show the
    Suckers in the place who run their face
    The base and a taste of who's the ace
    Start the race
    I'm coming in first
    With each verse
    I build a curse
    So rappers can't capture moe dee's rapture
    After I got ya
    I have to slap ya
    Senseless with
    Endless rhymes don't pretned this
    Is anything short of stupendous
    And when this rhyme is done
    Your mind will become
    So trapped in the rap
    You'll lust on another one
    You gotta wait it takes time
    I don't write I build a rhyme
    I draw plans draft the diagrams
    An architect in effect
    And it slams
    And if it's weak when I'm done
    Renovate and build another one
    I go to work
    I go to work
    I go to work
    Like a boxer
    Train the brain and aim
    To out fox ya
    Like a punch my rhyme knocks ya
    Some times it rocks ya
    So hard it stops ya
    Dead in your tracks
    So power packed
    Before you can react
    You're flat on your back
    Down for the count
    Get up and dismount
    Cause I'm coming
    With an endless amount
    Of words in a hurry
    Like a flurry
    A collage to camouflage
    The power punch but don't worry
    Knowledge is an antidote
    I got hand of smoke
    Writing at the speed of light with insight
    I wrote
    Rhymes at a level
    So you can't relate
    Unless you're intelligent
    So stay awake
    Sleepwalkers
    Slick talkers
    This time a native new yorker's
    Riding a crescendo wave to save the mental
    State of the fan so he can understand my pencil
    Rhymes in it's highest form
    I'm a drop it on ya like a bomb
    When it explodes I'll blow up
    A few casualties but so what
    If you're slow
    You blow
    You know you go
    I flow
    I throw all pro
    I go to work
    I go to work
    To say rap is not work
    Is ludicrous
    Whoever said it
    Must be new to this
    When you hear me
    You'll compare me
    To a prophet for profit
    Not merely
    Putting words together for
    Recreation
    Each rhyme's a dissertation
    You wanna know my occupation
    I get paid to rock the nation
    I go to work
    I go to work
    I go to work
