Award Tour
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
New York, N-J, N-C, V-A

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Oaktown, L-A, San Fran, St. John

People give your ears so I be sublime
It's enjoyable to know you and your concubines
Niggas, take off your coats, ladies act like gems
Sit down, Indian style, as we recite these hymns
See, lyrically I'm Mario Andretti on the MOMO
Ludicrously speedy, or infectious with the slow-mo
Heard me in the '80s, J.B.'s on “The Promo”
In my never ending quest to get the paper on the caper
But now let me take it to the Queens side
I'm taking it to Brooklyn side
All the residential Questers who invade the air
Hold up a second son cause we almost there
You can be a Black man and lose all your soul
You can be White and groove but don't crap the roll
See, my shit is universal if you got knowledge of dolo
Or delf or self, see there's no one else
Who can drop it on the angle, acute at that
So, do that, do that, do do that that that (come on)
Do that, do that, do do that that that (yeah)
Do that, do that, do do that that that
I'm bugging out, but let me get back cause I'm wetting niggas
So run and tell the others cause we are the brothers
I learned how to build mics in my workshop class
So give me this award, and let's not make it the last

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Chinatown, Spokane, London, Tokyo

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Houston, Delaware, DC, Dallas

Back in '89, I simply slid in the place
Buddy, buddy, buddy, all up in your face
A lot of kids was busting rhymes, but they had no taste
Some said Quest was wack, but now is that the case
I have a quest to have a mic in my hand
Without that, it's like Kryptonite and Superman
So Shaheed come in with the sugar cuts
Phife Dawg's my name, but on stage, call me Dynomutt
When was the last time you heard the Phifer sloppy
Lyrics anonymous, you'll never hear me copy
Top notch, baby, never coming less
Sky's the limit, you gots to believe up in Quest
Sit back, relax, get up off the path
If not that, here's a dancefloor, come move your ass
Nonbelievers, you can check the stats
I roll with Shaheed and the brother Abstract
Niggas know the time when Quest is in the jam
I never let a statue tell me how nice I am
Coming with more hits than the Braves and the Yankees
Living mad phat like an oversized Bambi
The wackest crews try to dis, it makes me laugh
When my track record's longer than a DC-20 aircraft
So next time that you think you want something here
Make something def or take that garbage to St. Elsewhere

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
S.C., Maryland, New Orleans, Motown

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Chinatown, Spokane, London, Tokyo

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Houston, Delaware, DC, Dallas

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
New York, N-J, N-C, V-A

Seven times out of ten
We listen to our music at night
Thus spawned the title of this program
The word maraud means to loot
In this case, we maraud for ears
