Ah yeah
Ow
Hit me band
Ow (Hey)
Hit me band (Yep)

From out of nowhere so they came
Smellin' like a dozen cans of wet Magic Shave (What's that funky smell?)
Some fool n a red mask totin' a 1-eyed bass
Pulled it out, stuck it up the police officer's face and said...

Bow down muthafucka, surrender ur rod (Watch it nigga!)
Nothin' can save U unless His name is God
U better get ur house n order, it's gettin' late (Move nigga!)
The return of the bump squad is comin' ur way (Hey)

Get off me jigger b4 I get perturbed
Find a job, lose the herb (Stop smokin'? Oh no!)
24 half-eaten chicken legs (I can't do that)
Make U wanna holler, make U beg (Yep)
U don't understand where I'm comin' from
I don't want ur woman if she's actin' dumb
She ain't got no money, so how she gonna pay?
The girl can't help it when they grab a hold of me and say...

Bow down muthafucka, surrender ur rod (Watch it nigga!)
Nothin' can save U unless His name is God
U better get ur house n order, I said it's gettin' late (Move nigga!)
The return of the bump squad is comin' ur way (Hey)
Hey, come on

Hey
Mmm, come on

Another house party is runnin' late (Damn!)
Nona's n the backyard, but she got 2 wait (Really though?) (Move nigga!)
She's got 2 get free y'all so she can sell her tape
Add an E 2 rap (What?) and it spells rape
Mmhmm

Come on baby, gimme the tongue
I'm so sleepy (Nothin' can save ya)
Come on, let me lick ur nipple
I... I got a headache (Nothin' can save ya)
Ow

Bow down muthafucka
The return of the bump squad
Bow down, bow down, mmm
It's comin' ur way
Yep

Cálmate mío {Calm down}
No vayas tan duro {Do not go so hard}
Estas caderas están hechas para el amor {These hips r made 4 love}
Yep
Oye, espera un segundo {Hey, wait a sec}
Tu eres como un coño {U r like a pussy}

And fall
Bow down muthafucka, surrender ur rod (Nona)
Nothin' can save U unless His name is God (Nona)
U better get ur house n order, it's gettin' late (Nona)
The return of the bump squad is comin' ur way (Nona)

(Hey girls, come on up here)
Add that E 2 rap, what's it spell? (Nona)
Bow down muthafucka (Awww shit!) (Nona)
U heard them niggas said bow down (Nona)

(Nona)
Bow down muthafucka, surrender ur rod (Nona, U wanna sell that tape?)
Nothin' can save U unless His name is God (Hahaha, U know she do)
U better get ur house n order, it's gettin' late
The return of the bump squad is comin' ur way

Y'all hold that groove 4 a while while I pull out the good book
(Groove 2 the funk) (Chill out nigga, we don't need that shit)
As they journey from the Mount Horeb
By the way of the Red Sea (Broke ass muthafucka, haha)
2 compass the land of Edom (Yep)
And the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way
(I wanna holler)
And the people spake against God and against Moses
(I wanna holler) (Yep)
Where4 have ye brought us up 2 Egypt 2 die n the wilderness
(I wanna holler)
So we sayin' y'all U can bump, but U best get ur house n order
And get back n the music books
U no-changin'-juvenile-delinquent-ass jiggers
And turn that loop off, damn! (Yep)
Yep

Hey, Sonny (What man?)
Ain't y'all got a record player? (Yep)
Well, why the hell don't U use them?
I'm tired of hearin' the same damn records all the fuckin' time!
Yep

The return of the bump squad (Bow down muthafucka)
Return of the bump squad (Bow down) (Yep)
Return of the bump squad (Bow down muthafucka)
Return of the bump squad (Bow down)

Bow down muthafucka, surrender ur rod (Return of the bump squad)
Damn
Nothin' can save U unless His name is God (Return of the bump squad)
U better get ur house n order (Return of the bump squad)
It's gettin' late
The return of the bump squad is comin' ur way
Return of the bump squad {repeat}

Bow down muthafucka, surrender ur rod (Watch it nigga!)
Nothin' can save U unless His name is God
U better get ur house n order, it's gettin' late (Move nigga!)
The return of the bump squad is comin' ur way
