Lyrics
Slick Rick used to get his kicks
by writing his name
on the subway walls.

Whenever he'd see
some public property
it was fair game for him to
write his name.

Slick Rick knew all the tricks
and he never got busted,
was never trusted
with a paint can in his hand.

They thought they'd be cool and put him in an art school
but he saw what they were doin',
tryin' to ruin his style.

Slick Rick became a derelict
and now he's drinking wine
down around 8th and Vine.

But every now and then,
he comes back again.
Whenever he gets the urge
he goes out and writes his words.

Slick Rick split quick
but things are gonna be alright,
his little brother learned to write
with a paint can in his hand.
