[Sean Paul]
Out of town hard heads get swiss cheesed up

With the plush leather guts steady grippin' the butt
Oh you fo sho with it, then pull yo pistol

And hit you with that U-Way so ROOKIE don't be surprised
We buckin' blowin' killa and sippin' on something good

In case it just might pop I'm 'bout ready to lock and load
