lyrics

Intro:

1 Yo, it's the H to the E, R, to the B to the
2 O to the N to the E
3 Yo, it's the H to the E, R, to the B to the
4 O to the N to the E

Verse One:

1 (It's Herb-One) & I'm hurricaning haphazard hacks,
2 in this harshly hypocritical Hip-Hop habitat.
3 Excellent execution, examine the evidence,
4 eloquent elocution, emphatic embracement of the essence.
5 Resonating with the respected—resident reprazentatives,
6 reflecting reality & regenerating the relevant.
7 Busting like a brick breaching barricades with break beats,
8 beginning with bare bones & built with the backbone beneath.
9 The one & only, not the one you oughta oppose,
10 officially outlasting the ominous overtones.
11 So nullify the noise now, if it's nothing but negative narrowness,
12 nefarious narratives.
13 Expanding expression to elevated evolution,
14 every element established with no exclusion.
15 (It's Herb-One) & I be—highly effective, respected,
16 bona fide, original, nasty emcee! (it's Herb-One!)

Chorus One:

1 (reprazent reprazent-zent)
2 (it's Herb-One) (reprazent reprazent-zent)
3 (my name is Herb-One) (reprazent reprazent-zent)
4 (yeah, it's Herb-One) (reprazent reprazent-zent)

Breakdown One:

1 (It's Herb-One) one word: superb, just admit it
2 some of the most preferred deserve to get smashed & done in with!
3 (It's Herb-One) one word: superb, bring it our just quit it!
4 33 & a 1/3, cut it, scratch it &—
5 (It's Herb-One) one word: superb, just admit it
6 some of the most preferred, get burned up, want it? then submit it!
7 (It's Herb-One) one word: superb, get your hands lifted!
8 33 & a 1/3, cut it, scratch it & backspin it!

Verse Two:

1 (It's Herb-One) one word: superb, whether I'm on the mix
2 or on the mic, best believe I do what I like tah
3 ignite the mic device like lightening striking in same place
4 twice the precise number of satellites in flight
5 with overflowing, never ending energies
6 I'm overloading, nonsensical emcees
7 I'm overthrowing, negligent entities
8 & obviously negating all enemies
9 with that supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus
10 whose the rapper, master linguist, emcee with the dope ish?
11 (it's Herb-One) study rhythms, attain wisdom
12 it's still the same system, just up-dated curriculum
13 lyrics I kick some, then step like a kick drum
14 before I break out I bust something of a conundrum
15 I'll blast you to kingdom come! (eh huh) you'll get done
16 & f--- a gun! I get my heat straight from the sun! (It's Herb-One!)

Chorus Two:

1 (reprazent reprazent-zent)
2 (it's Herb-One) (reprazent reprazent-zent)
3 (my name is Herb-One) (reprazent reprazent-zent)
4 (yeah, it's Herb-One) (reprazent reprazent-zent)

Breakdown Two:

1 (It's Herb-One) that's my name don't wear it out
2 I'm flaring out, your heart, I'm tearing it out the frame
3 (it's Herb-One) that's my name don't wear it out
4 I'm flaring out, your heart, I'm tearing it out the frame

Ending:

1 (It's Herb-One) H.E.R.B.O.N.E.
2 no numeral, just spell it out you lazy bastard!
3 it's only two syllables B (uh)
4 it's beautiful, just yell it out (Herb-One!?) yeah, yeah you've got it mastered!
