Chunjay, Verse 1:
I wrote this song in my car it goes boom like that
Got me drivin off the road like Tounces the Cat
One hand on my phone and one hand on the wheel
I can’t recommend that Hellen Keller type a deal
1, 2, 1, 2 my mic checks don’t bounce
That’s Clever with an A*, don’t you mispronounce
My rhymes cut like a cleaver give a dam like a beaver
Used to go by Sooperman, you can call me Chris Reever
Pop hip-hop my rhymes are carbonated
Been digging beats myself since the slaves emancipated
Seeking justice for the poor like Robin of Locksley
Grab a mic with shaky hands like Michael J. Foxly
Fools they wanna box me for being so fresh
Never claimed to be a savior I’m not David Koresh
I’m not down with ATF we can chill at my house
Grill up some steaks, roast a batch of buttered Brussels sprouts
[*Chunjay’s name comes from the Korean word for “clever.” He was previously Cleva-MC, and people often pronounced it “Cleava.”]

Chunjay, Verse 2:
I broke up with my girl she didn’t like my cologne
Now I’m giving it a whirl at being alone
I’m far too tough to die like Joey Ramone
I don’t mean to pry but have you seen the Flintstones?
Cause I’ll be your Barney if you’ll be my Betty
Blonde cave dude who is hardy and steady
I get kinda sweaty when I’m down at the gym
Cussing burpees make my frown go down to my chin
Kanye and Kim—yo how do they work?
I’m guessing it’s all Twitter, fire, air and dirt
I have too many shirts separated by color
It’s not a racist program I swear on my mother
I like to put butter right into my coffee
Got me feeling bulletproof while your butt is feeling groggy
Rocky steps like Stallone, Philly used to be home
But cheesesteaks made me chubby, now I’m tryin a get toned

Chunjay, Verse 3:
Hip-hop, got turned into hip pop
I don’t really care as long as the beat drops
I never call the cops except when I’m scared
9-1-1 is a punchline except when compared
To the excellent care they give to white people
Got a Glock, two fists, and the sweetest boy beagles
Singles, paralegals, plus cute nurses
I’ll date a woman in scrubs if I meet her in the churches
Got these primal urges so I’m eating Paleo
Barefoot running in Orlando and going to shows
I met this single rose on a Wednesday at a service
I like to hold her hand but my beard just makes her nervous
Wrote home to mom that I found my special purpose
Call me Jimmy the Jerk I think I’m joining the circus
Scratch my surface? you should probably say you’re sorry
Leave a tip for the deejay it’s his tunes that rock the party
