Missy Elliott

"Back in the Day"

[Intro]
"Brothers and sisters!
Brothers and sisters, I don't know what this world is coming to!"

[JAY-Z, Missy]
Whassup, Missy? Timbo!
This is.. another.. Missy Elliott (Hip-Hop! Yes!)
Exclusive (Yes, uh)

[Verse 1: Jay-Z]
One for the butters, I came from the gutter
No I came from my mother but y'all know what I mean
Hov' is here to stay like permanent crease in your jeans
Me and Missy be the new Tag Team
"Whoomp! There It Is"
We like, Rae & Ghost, A.G. and Showbiz
We "Public Enemy #1," our "Uzi Weighs a Ton"
This is our house, Run! hahaha

[Missy]
What happened to those good old days? (Huh?)
When hip-hop, was so much fun
Ohh, house parties in the summer y'all (C'mon)
And no one, came through with a gun (A guh-un)
It was all about good music y'all
It helped to relieve some stress (Huh?)
Ohh, we was under one groove y'all (Y'all)
So much love between North and West

[Hook: Missy Elliott]
Go back in the day
British Knights and gold chains
Do the prep and cabbage patch
And wear your laces all fat
Back in the dayyyyyyyy, hey hey
Hip-Hop has chaaaanged

[Verse 2: Missy]
Remember when we used to battle? (Uh huh)
On the block before the lights came on (Yeah)
Ohh! Mama said we would be straight A kids (Come on)
If we did our homework, like we knew those songs
Salt-N-Pepa, Rakim, and P.E
D.M.C, and Heavy D
Yes! Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, too (Oooh ooh!)
MC Lyte opened, doors for you and me, c'mon

[Hook (JAY-Z)]
Go back in the day
British Knights and gold chains
Do the prep and cabbage patch
And wear your laces all fat
Back in the dayyyyyyyy, hey hey (Young!)
Hip-Hop has chaaaanged (J. Breezy, let's do it again, n*gga)

[Verse 3: JAY-Z]
Rough, the way it oughta be
From day KRS-One all the way up to Nineteen Naughty Three
To M.O.P., we Cold as Ice
n*gga, we rock it from the "Dre Day" to the Suge Knight
So f*ck Chuck Phillips and Bill O'Reilly
If they try to stop hip-hop, we all gon' rally, n*gga
Post Biggie and 'Pac I gotta hold down the city
Make a n*gga wanna holla like Missy, but f*ck it
Just let a n*gga MC
The best rapper alive, unquestionably
If you riff on your EP, you gonna need an MD
So you gots to chill cause I kill at will
Like solid water dude; y'all n*ggas don't get it
"Kill at Will," solid water? Ice Cube
Ha ha, that's how hip-hop has evolved
Jay-Z's for President, I'm namin Ra as the National God

[Missy]
Me and Jigga, Jigga J-J-Jay-Hova
I rocks the mic right whether I'm p*ssin' drunk or sober
Misdemeanor fo'-finger ringer I'm stupid FRESH
I've been hot since LL rocked the Kangol HAT
Yes yes, the yes yes, the yes y'alln
C'mon... AW YEA, AW YEA
Okay, me, that n*gga Jigga, fresh dressed in the mornin'
C'mon... AW YEA, AW YEA

[Hook: Missy Elliott]
Go back in the day
British Knights and gold chains
Do the prep and cabbage patch
And wear your laces all fat
Back in the dayyyyyyyy, hey hey
Hip-Hop has chaaaanged

{*ad libs and whistling*}

[Break: Missy]
I wanna, go back in, time (let's go)
Feels like I, I wanna, go back in, time
Feels like I (Y'all remember "Self Destruction"?)
I wanna, go back in, time
(Where all the rap artists got on a record together?)
Feels like I, I wanna, go back in, time
(I used to love them days, no tension, let's go!!)

[Hook: Missy Elliott]
Go back in the day
British Knights and gold chains
Do the prep and cabbage patch
And wear your laces all fat
Back in the dayyyyyyyy, hey hey
Hip-Hop has chaaaanged
