      About "Paul Revere"

      Lyrics for Beastie Boys - "Paul Revere"

      Now here's a little story - I've got to tell
      About three bad brothers - you know so well
      It started way back in history
      With Adrock, M.C.A., and me - Mike D.
      I had a little horse named Paul Revere
      Just me and my horsy and a quart of beer
      Riding across the land - kicking up sand
      Sheriff's posse on my tail cause I'm in demand
      One lonely Beastie I be
      All by myself - without nobody
      The sun is beating down on my baseball hat
      The air is gettin' hot - the beer is getting flat
      Lookin' for a girl - I ran into a guy
      His name is M.C.A., I said, "Howdy" - he said, "Hi"

      He told a little story - that sounded well rehearsed
      Four days on the run and that he's dying of thirst
      The brew was in my hand - and he was on my tip
      His voice was hoarse, his throat was dry - he asked me for a sip
      He said, "Can I get some?"
      I said, "You can't get none!"
      Had a chance to run
      He pulled out his shotgun
      He was quick on the draw - I thought I'd be dead
      He put the gun to my head and this is what he said,

      "Now my name is M.C.A. - I've got a license to kill
      I think you know what time it is - it's time to get ill
      Now what do we have here - an outlaw and his beer
      I run this land, you understand - I make myself clear."
      We stepped into the wind - he had a gun, I had a grin
      You think this story's over but it's ready to begin

      "Now I got the gun - you got the brew
      You got two choices of what you can do
      It's not a tough decision as you can see
      I can blow you away or you can ride with me" I said, I'll ride with you if
      You can get me to the border
      The sheriff's after me for what I did to his daughter
      I did it like this - I did it like that
      I did it with a whiffleball bat
      So I'm on the run - the cop's got my gun
      And right about now - it's time to have some fun
      The King Adrock - that is my name
      And I know the fly spot where they got the champagne."
      We rode for six hours the we hit the spot
      The beat was a bumping and the girlies was hot
      This dude was staring like he knows who we are
      We took the empty spot next to him at the bar
      M.C.A. said, "Yo, you know this kid?"
      I said, "I didn't." - but I know he did
      The kid said, "Get ready cause this ain't funny
      My name's Mike D. and I'm about to get money."
      Pulled out the jammy - aimed it at the sky
      He yelled, "Stick 'em up!" - and let two fly
      Hands went up and people hit the floor
      He wasted two kids that ran for the door
      "I'm Mike D. and I get respect
      Your cash and your jewelry is what I expect"
      M.C.A. was with it and he's my ace
      So I grabbed the piano player and I punched him in the face
      The piano player's out - the music stopped
      His boy had beef - and he got dropped
      Mike D. grabbed the money - M.C.A. snatched the gold
      I grabbed two girlies and a beer that's cold.
