U've been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took
If U thought that U could put me down and not get a page n my book
U've been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took
Tryin' 2 ball, U will fall and never get a 2nd look

B4 me there was nothin'
Without the eye U cannot see
Just a form n the darkness
I brought the light and U believed
With everyone of my creations
A future story would b told
U tried 2 change it up with temptation
But all ur claims would b sold (Walk away with soul, soul)
4 every soul there's a buyer
4 every action there's a price (How much U want 4 that?)
4 every option there's a tryer
But when the claim run out, ain't nothin' nice

That's why U've been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took
Uh, if U thought that U could put me down and not get a page n my book
U've been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took
Tryin' 2 ball, U will fall and never get a 2nd look

I changed ur name, it didn't suit ya
I did the same 4 a little while
I gave U love, it led 2 revenue (Talkin' about the money)
And n return a Judas smile
Hahaha, U gave me
What I am will never fade away
Like U bein' funky, it'll never b
Woo-hoo
What I am U will finally see (U will see)
Then U will admit, uh, 2 4-part harmony

U've been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took (Uh, c'mon)
If U thought that U could put me down and not get a page n my book
U've been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took (Woo)
Tryin' 2 ball, U will fall and never get a 2nd look

1979 times 2 or maybe a bit '4 that
Me, sister and ur brother got paid when the man let 'em up 2 bat
Whataya do when U act like a fool and wonder why ur people disown ya?
Sing any song Mr. Charlie wanna sing, see, around here we don't know ya
They'd have 2 take me out (OK)
4 treatin' me like a B if she ain't 1
And if she is it's no good like a rat n the hood
We gonna give her a Bible and then some
Come on, uh

The chocolate invasion starts here {repeat}

The chocolate invasion, Neapolitan born 2 rule
I never was fond of a dumb blonde that can't swim n the carpool
Ur secret's out da box B unless U fess up 2 what U stole
Here's what we think, U're the weakest link
Get ready cuz we comin' with the old school...
Come on, come on, give it 2 me, baby

That's groovy
Keep doin' it

Ah Mr. Aussie man, what makes U think I'll work 4 U?
Payin' 15 cents on the dollar, those r the wages of a fool (Get widdit)
Pinocchio mentality on levels more than 9
From now on the only piece U'll ever get from me's my mind
The chocolate invasion starts here {repeat}

Now wait a minute
How dare U call the robot Mecca
I knew that smack was jive
Step right up 2 the minstrel show
Starts n about 5 minutes
Confess these shufflin' punks (Yeah)
Everyone claimin' no sin
Act a fool if U wanna (Uh)
I guess the quickest way out (tell 'em) is the way n (The same boat)

U've been bamboozled, hoodwinked, took
If U thought that U could put me down with a song that got no hook
Oh no
The chocolate invasion starts here
No matter ur color U're still my brother if U've got no fear (Uh)
The chocolate invasion starts here
U're still our sister although we missed ya
Come wipe away ur tears

Peace 2 Common, 2 Brother Curtis (Nikka Costa, D'Angelo, Macy Gray)
Big love Maceo, Erykah Badu
(Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys, Larry Graham, Patti Labelle)
The chocolate invasion starts here {repeat}
