intro (shaolin finger jab) – chamber music lyrics – wu-tang clan

yo, yo one two one two, yo live in effect
we got the king, ruler zig-zag-zag allah
commonly known to y’all as, the rza
yo, before we go into side two or side b of this double cd

know what i’m sayin’? i want to give y’all a little announcement man
for the last year there’s been a lot of music comin’ out
the sh*t been weak, know what i’m sayin’?
a lot of n*gg*z trying to take hip-hop

and make that sh*t r n’ b, rap and bullsh*t ya know what i’m sayin’?
or make that sh*t funk
f*ck that, this is mcin right here, this is hip-hop
wu-tang, wu-tang, gonna bring it to you in the purest form

i got the gza on my side, killah priest
sunz of man, royal fam, killarmy, gravediggaz, 12 o’clock
yo, we want to let y’all n*gg*z know somethin’ man
to my people all across the world, japan, europe, know what i’m sayin’?

canada, know mean, austria, germany, sweden
yo, this is true hip-hop you listenin’ to right here
in the pure form, this ain’t no r n’ b with a wack n*gg* takin’ the loop
be loopin’ that sh*t thinkin’ it’s gonna be the sound of the culture

ya know what i’m sayin’?
(that player bullsh*t)
ya know what i’m sayin’? all that player dressin’ up
on this sh*t, actin’ like this some kind of fashion show man

ya know what i’m sayin’? this is hip-hop right here
ya know what i’m sayin’? this is lyrics, mcin
and yo, to y’all n*gg*z who think you going to become an mc overnight
ya know what i’m sayin’? better snap out that f*ckin’ dream

man it takes years for this you, cat in the hat *ss rappers
you dr. seuss, mother goose, simple minded
(stop runnin’ up on n*gg*z with all that wack sh*t)
word up man
(i’m talking about you mc’s)

you ain’t no mc, n*gg*z ain’t made for this ya know what i’m sayin’?
this sh*t was only built for cuban linx, we told y’all n*gg*z back then
and then everybody wanted to change their motherf*ckin’ name
ya know what i’m sayin’? we come out with a style

now everybody wanna imitate our style and all you producers out there
ya know what i’m sayin’? it’s all good to show love to a n*gg*
but stop bitin’ ‘my sh*t, ya know what i’m sayin’?
come from your own heart with this sh*t

and all y’all mc’s, stop biting from my n*gg*z
we told ya’ll n*gg*z on the f*cking cuban linx alb*m
don’t bite our sh*t, y’all n*gg*z keep biting
yo, i’m going to tell y’all something man

it’s time for the wu revolution right here
to all my n*gg*z across the world
raise your motherf*cking fist in the air
and get ready for the triumph
’cause the gods is here to take over this sh*t word up, peace
