The Choice Is Yours Lyrics

Artist: Black Sheep
Album: A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing

Verse One: Dres
Who's the Black Sheep, what's the Black Sheep?
Don't know who I am, or when I'm coming so you sleep
Wasn't in my room, wasn't in my sphere
Knew not who I was, but listen here
Dres, D-R-E-S, yes I get suckers start
If it's all right with you, I'll rip this here one apart
Back, Middle, to the front, don't front
Wanna a good time, gonna give you what you want
Can I hear a hey? [Hey!]
Now get a yo! [Yo!]
You gotta hay? [Huh!]
It's for the hoes [Oh!]
The styling is creative, Black Sheep of the Native
Can't be violated, or even decepticated
I got brothers in the Jungle, cousins on the Quest
Deaf retarded uncles, in parties were they rest
Guess, which way, what, when, how
Mista Lawnge, Dres, Black Sheep slam NOW
Know you've heard the others, phonies to the lovers
Then of course, the choice is yours
You can get with this, or you can get with that [repeat 3X]
I think you'll get with this, for this is where it's at
[repeat both lines 2X]
Verse Two
Where's the Black Sheep, here's the Black Sheep
Even if we wanted to the flock could not be weak
Watch me swing like this, why should I swing it like that,
Because in fact, on me it might not attract
Therefore I ignore, do as I feel inside
I live with me, I've got my back tonight
Ya know what I'm saying, yo Black, I'm not playing
Need to go with this, or go with that with no delaying
See, in actuality, one be can it be,
I made it look easy, because it is to me
Any time capacity was filled, try to rock it
Any time a honey gave us play, tried to knock it
Never was fool, so we finished school
Never see us sweat, and you'll never see us drool
Out to rock the globe while it's still here to rock
Don't punch girls, and we don't punch a clock
Gotta go, gotta go, see you later by the cat
And you can't beat that with a bat
Verse Three
Now you can get this, or you can get with that
I think you'll get with this yes, for this is kinda fat
If you get with that, then you will surly miss,
Because that is so wack, I think you'll get with this
For in the day in my life, or rather the life of my days
Never sweat the chaos, for Black Sheep has ways
Although, how shall I say it, take a point, convey it
Styling is quite Dolby, yes I know those for you play it
Not to be all that though all that is my goal
Stumble and fell, brother, like Dres would roll
Need a sexy honey for a twilight stroll
Gave up on sushi, give me an egg roll
At A & W, get to the Root, with a boot or sneaker
Get near a speaker, demo to a single
To the kind with a fly hoe, damned the scenario
And, pass the paper, cross the fader
Black Sheep getting played, like a Sony in a Beta
Dres the creator, of a style that is much greater

There are two versions of the song, remember. The 'engine engine number 9' version is "the Choice is Yours (Revisited)". The third verse listed here is from "The Choice is Yours", track 7 on A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing.

Engine, Engine, Number Nine,

On the New York transit line,

If my train goes off the track,

Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up!

Back on the scene,

Crispy and clean,

You can try,

But then why,

Cause you can't intervene.

We be the outcast,

Down for the settle.

Won't play the rock,

Won't play the pebble.

Open the door,

You best believe,

We're sliding through it swiftly.


We can make it hip to be,

What we are cause what we be,

Be the epitome,


So now I dwell

Just to say your plainar

Hold your cup cause I got the container.

Pass a plader,

Cross the fader.

Black Sheep get played

Like the Sony innovator.

Never the traitor,

Party of later,

And you can get a scoop,

These lyrics are wrong all over the place!
by jean on 6/10/2010 2:50pm
this goes hard
by hambone on 6/18/2010 12:27am
several errors. Big one in the main song Verse 3 is "played like a Sony Innovator." It's a 1991 thing for all you young'uns. And in Verse 3 from "Revisited," it ends like this: "So now I dwell just to say you're plainer/ Hold your cup cause I got the container/ Pass the plate-a/ Cross the fader/ Black Sheep get played like a Sony Innovator/ Never the traitor/ Party inflator/ And you can get a scoop/ Later."

19 years later and this makes rap today look like shit!
by Perz49 on 6/21/2010 10:25am
The line "Deaf retarded uncles, in parties were they rest" is wrong.

It should be, "Deaf retarded uncles and departed, may they rest"

by Big Wayne on 9/10/2010 1:43pm
Almost 20 years later and this is still the bomb, too bad we don't have real innovative rappers. The words make sense, there is no hook, just lyrical style.
by You Can Deal With This on 9/12/2010 10:11am
Which is the best song ever.
by randyNature on 10/19/2010 1:40am

This is wrong
by AWOL-Quest on 12/18/2010 11:26pm
These lyrics are for the original track...the version with the "engine engine numba 9.." is from The Choice Is Yours (Reprise) which is the version everyone knows not the original...
by on 2/17/2011 3:36pm
"Engine Engine Number Nine" is an old rhyme kids would use to determine who would be "it" in a game of Tag or Hide-n-Seek.
by Anonymous on 3/16/2011 4:46pm
They didn't miss the 3rd verse of engine engine number 9 because that's on the choice is yours(revisited) this is the choice is yours
by Boston Strangler on 7/7/2011 5:17pm
First of all, to those of you hating on the song, why the hell would you even be checking the lyrics out if you think the song sucks? Thank you hambone & perz49 for correcting the lyrics. This is one of the greatest hip hop songs of all time and so what if it isn't lyrical genius. It epitomizes what real hip hop was all about. Making music you can dance to and have a hell of a lot of fun with. The crap that's. Being made now is a pathetic joke. I wish they would bring real beats back with rappers you can actually understand.

Must be
by The Informer on 8/26/2012 8:15pm
Just so you guys know that verse that you are all pissed that this person didn't put in wasn't apart of the original song. It was added in once revisited. :)
by Nikoleon on 11/8/2012 6:07pm
Too bad hip hop now is not what it was... Not many have skills like this anymore. sad face.

"pass the plate, across the fader"
how it sounds, pass the playda cross the fayda. The plate is a record, the fader is slider between a set of turntables which brings the sound of one turntable down while bringing the other up.

Also, Dres, D-R-E-S, Yes, I guess I can start. if it's alright with you I'll rip this here tone apart.

Can I hear a Hey
Now can I get a Yo?
"I got a hat" This is a jim hat or jimmy hat or condom.
it's for the hoes.
