I Like the Way You Talk
[Hook]
I like the way you talk, I like the way you talk
I like-I like-I like-I like-I like the way you talk

[Verse 1: Gift of Gab]
I'm better than the average letterman
You better plan ahead instead of rantin'
Set it steady telegraphin' blows
You'll never ever grasp the clever
Vast and relevantness step and thrash all through your meadow b*st*rd like an elephant
My head expands forever every chance I get to tear a jam
I shred and mash sh*t
My endeavor hella better evidence of verbal
In a trance, you're spitting trash my man begin again
My mind is militant and will reveal your little innocence
The citizens of villages be like hey Gift, oh you're the man
My n***a can you spit again and kill them with your infinite flow
Did it and made dividends
And exit with your chick in hand
Right when we fled the premises
She leaned right in my ear and said

[Hook]
I like the way you talk, I like the way you talk
I like-I like-I like-I like-I like the way you talk

I like the way you talk, I like the way you talk
I like-I like-I like-I like-I like the way you talk

[Verse 2: Gift of Gab]
So talkative I'm out to live the life of mountains shifters
Now and then my style offends
But only if you're out to grip the crown of MCs
Bound to pound the sound and clown and diss the lesser groundedness
So fresh astounding with these records
Y'all ain't sh*t to us your non-existent flow will fall to sh*t
You step inside of our existence all of y'all will call your momma Just to save you from the trauma
This is Quannum call your doctor
Get your karma falling all upside your noggin
Stallin' with them rhymes that sound like I was sounding
When I was a toddler barely walkin'
Romping through playschool with slobber falling out my mouth
From ga-ga-in' and goo-goo-in'
It's voodoo when you step into new energy
I threw you when you kick them simple rhymes
That you do when you rap
Fool you in a trap, see me and you doo-doo in your pants
Rule you with my grand iron hand go through you with a lance
As my mind expands I enhance
Do you feel my wrath?
Your girl had told me Gabby, I so love listening to you man
[Hook]
I like the way you talk, I like the way you talk
I like-I like-I like-I like-I like the way you talk

I like the way you talk, I like the way you talk
I like-I like-I like-I like-I like the way you talk

[Outro]
But anyway I did hear you on the radio today

If you were to tune into my show then you had an experience
I produce, write, and direct my own material for both radio and television
Because I own them
Just another one of the things that makes me so special
