Egg Man
Ah yeah...
I looked out the window, seen his bald head
Ran to the fridge and pulled out an egg
Scoped him with my scopes, he had no hair
Launched that shot and he was caught out there

Saw the convertible driving by
Loaded up the slingshot, let one fly
He went for his to find he didn't have one
Put him in check, correct with my egg gun

The egg, a symbol of life
I go inside your house and bust out your wife
I pulled out the jammy, he thought it was a joke
The trigger I pulled, his face the yoke

Reached in his pocket, took all his cash
Left my man standing with an egg mustache
Suckers they come a dime a dozen
When I say dozen, you know what I'm talking about, boy

(Yeah, that's right, I'm the Egg Man)
(Driving around, King of the town "Hey")
(Always got my windows rolled down)
(Ready to throw)
(You know I'm the Egg Man)

Once upon a time
"Egg Man"

Humpty Dumpty was a big fat egg
He was playing the wall then he broke his leg
Tossed it out the window, three minutes hot
Hit the Rastaman, he said "Bloodclot"

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg
Riding the trains in between cars
When I pull out the station, "You're gonna get yours"

Drive-by eggings plaguing L.A.
"Yo, they just got my little cousin Ese"
Sometimes hard boiled, sometimes runny Ray
Comes from a chicken not a bunny, dummy

People laugh, it's no joke
My name's Yauch and I'm throwing the yoke
"Now they got me in a cell" but I don't care
It was then that I caught catching people out there

(Up on the roof, in my car, up all night)
(I'm going through science like Dolemite)
(The Mack (Who?))
(I'm the Egg Man, Taxi Driver)
(I'm the Egg Man)
"Egg Man Egg Man"

We all dressed in black
We snuck up around the back
We began to attack
The eggs did crack on Haze's back

Sam I Am, down with the program
Green Eggs and Ham, Yosemite Sam
Come Halloween, you know I come strapped
I throw it at a sucker, k-pap

You made the mistake and judge a man by his race
You go through life with egg on your face
Woke up in the morning, peculiar feeling
Looked up and saw egg dripping from the ceiling

Families, punk rocks, the businessman
I'll dog anybody with an egg in my hand
Not like the crack that you put in a pipe
But crack on your forehead, here's a towel, now wipe

"Egg Man Egg Man Egg Man Egg Man
Egg Man Egg Man Egg Man
Egg Man Egg Man Egg Man
Egg Man Egg Man Egg Man
Egg Man"
Egg Man
