The Breakdown
(Ooh wee) alright (breakdown)
Break it down
Uh huh, I like that

It's (itís) not (not) easy being ugly
Coming up hoping that people would love me
As a kid in some cheap sneakers and a backpack
Try to make a friend and you end up getting laughed at (ha ha)
When Iíd try to fit with a clique
Or pick up a chick a felt like Iíd been hit with a brick
Cuz all Iíd ever get was chills from the cold shoulder
Thinkin this will all change when I grow older
Move to today and it's still the same
As I try to make a bang in this hip hop thing
See all I wanna do is rock the mic
And I hear there's a jam going off tonight

So Iím knockin, I can't get in
Iím knock, knockin but I can't get in
Iím knock, knock, knockin but I can't get in
And I can hear the party is about to begin

[Chorus]
You wanna lock this door well
What are we gonna do (break it down)
You wanna close us out well
What are we gonna do (break it down)
You wanna build this wall well
What are we gonna do (break it down)
You'll have to watch it fall
Cuz what are we gonna do (break it down)

You canít stop us now
We will break you down
You canít stop us now

Now Iíma break it down like the Berlin Wall
And give it all Iíve got until the curtain call
Einstein, Andy, and I started this group
To get back to the roots and rock retarded loops
Now here's the scoop, we got signed in '99
Two LPís, performing overseas
Show after show we'd be taking the stage
Straight getting no sleep making minimum wage
Begging for support from the labels and the press
But they'd look right past us and be like "next"
They said our sound won't make it today
They don't wanna hear what we're trying to say

So weíre knockin, but we can't get in
Weíre knock, knockin but we can't get in
Weíre knock, knock, knockin but we can't get in
And we can hear the party is about to begin

[Chorus]

You canít stop us now
We will break you down
You canít stop us now
We will break you down

One more time, break it down
