i’m housin’ lyrics – epmd

cooling on the scene like a horse in a stable
a brother got ill and tried to sn*tch a fat cable
i stepped back, like it wasn’t no thing
punched him in the jaw with the fat gold ring
i had an ace in the hole when it came to that
(yo p you was packing?) you know i’m strapped
posse kept rolling it was hard to get with em
so i stepped back, and unb*ttoned my lee denim
they kept coming, just like i figured
so i stepped back, and started spraying n*gg*s

[e double]
what a way to go out, out like a sucker
but i’m on track, like a long island train
that can head your mission, suckers who be dissing
always on my jock like a snake always hissing
grabbing and tapping me like luther vandross
take me to the bar for the drink and make a toast
giving best wishes to the best mc
the e the d-o-u-b-l-e
because i’m housing [repeat: x3]

cooling at a party, no better yet disco
head feeling mellow from a bottle of cisco

to crush and fry a sucker mc like crisco
every chance i get, i try to kill
that’s one less sucker new jack, who tried to act ill
i keep the place jumping til the party’s through
whether it’s disco, hardcore, or rhythm and blues
take off your coat, won’t you stay a while
check out the voice that is smooth and mild
it’s like wheel of fortune, go on for big money
come cold rock the party, and leave wit ya honey

[e double]
gimme the cue, check one two
don’t try to come off on me, because you doo-doo
treating me the e doubl-e, like a stepchild
well let me tell you homeboy you’re living foul
mc’s, you know who you are
(on the bandwagon) why p? (cause you a star)
this is the year that when the joker’s are wild
when a f*g can’t hack it and try to bite the style
i get hip to the scheme, before it happens
if it gets wild, then i start capping
but for now, since everything’s calm
relate to the matter as i drop the bomb
as i proceed to rock, the girls are clocking
some brothers act hard but the rest are jocking
because i’m housing [repeat: x4]

i come on strong, like a bodybuilder
cast a spell upon a sucker, like witch matilda
deliver a rhyme like federal express
my intention’s not to dis, but impress
for the ladies and gents, the money was spent
to see the e-p-double-e-m-d (yes the main event)
in concert, not worried bout oos n boos (because we do work)
to make your body jerk
(to make your girl want to leave her man and start to flirt
with the p) double-e md double e’n
i’m not skeezing, but pleasing
all party goers, also behind show-ers
who like the not, fast slow flow of rhymes that form in my dome
out the mouth, to the microphone
because i’m housing [repeat: x4]
dj la boss, on the scratch
(my homeboy big daddy kane, bizmarkie)
