    Well on and on and on and on
    I can’t stop y’all ’til the early morn’
    So rock y’all tick tock y’all to the beat y’all
    C’mon and rock y’all
    I give thanks for inspiration
    It guides my mind along the way
    A lot of people get jealous, they’re talking about me
    But that’s just ’cause they haven’t got a thing to say
    Everybody’s rappin’ like it’s a commercial
    Acting like life is a big commercial
    So this is what I’ve got to say to you all
    Be true to yourself and you will never fall
    And now I’d like to pass the mic to the A
    So what’s your name, Yauch? My name is M.C.A.

  25. J.J. Tay says:

    Do I see relics on the Pectoral Cross of His Holiness? It seems like this is the back of the cross that is facing out.
