3 The Hard Way

This song is by Beastie Boys and appears on the album To the 5 Boroughs (2004).

Original video
Fresh Dressed, 'cause I shop at Modell's
Deep in Brooklyn, I ride the L
Used to ride the D to beat the morning bell
At Edward R. Murrow out on Avenue L.

Well, we be grillin' cheese and flippin' flapjacks
With the diamond stylus yo, we cutting wax
We're the super elastic bubble plastic
Got ethereal material that's straight up classic

You try to vex reject but you should respect
Or we'll have JC send you out a FedEx
So don't start to flex up in the discotheque
Or we'll make you extinct like a tyranosaurus rex

We're gonna rock this motherfucker
Like 3 the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker
Like 3 the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker
Like 3 the hard way
3 the hard way
3 the hard way

Your rhyme technique, it is antique
To all my heads, Qu'est-ce-que tu fabriques?
Que cosa fai? Como esta?
Ho fato molte telefonate

I said OOPS! Gotcha, clutch like Piazza
Sneak between the sheets, so hide the matzoh
Holla back challah bread...next
We are the crew that put the crew in cruex

I can see that Def Jam doesn't recognize me
I'm Mike D, the one who put the satin in your panties
Time to count MC's in this place to be
Not 5 not 4 not 2 just 3

We're gonna rock this motherfucker
Like 3 the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker
Like 3 the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker
Like 3 the hard way
3 the hard way
3 the hard way

1 1 1, 2 2 2, 3 3 3, what up?
1 1 1, 2 2 2, 3 3 3, what up?
1 1 1, 2 2 2, 3 3 3, what up?
1 1 1, 2 2 2, 3 3 3, what up?

Roundhouse kick the mic out your hand
Drunken Mantis, my name brand
So if you're slick with the tricks and the sleight of hand
I'm hip to the shit that you're trying to scam

Ginip Ginop, I got shit to pop
I'm an exceptional professional that just don't stop
So pack up your bags and your mic and don't wait
E.T. phone home, now get the fuck out my face

You know we shake 'em, bake 'em, then we take 'em
Treat MC's like leaves, go out and rake 'em
Sell our CD's on Canal before we make 'em
But to serve you on a platter like steak-ummm

We're gonna rock this motherfucker
Like 3 the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker
Like 3 the hard way
We're gonna rock this motherfucker
Like 3 the hard way
3 the hard way
3 the hard way
