Check the lyrics
[NTM]
Chacun sa Mafia ,Chacun sa mille-fa
Mmh, baby, come wicked nigger

[AZ]
You sit back relax catching contacts
Sip your cognac
And let's all wash this money
Through this laundry mat
Sneak attack
A new cat is back worth top dollar
In fact touch mines and i'll react
Like a rock wilder

Who pull the late
We play for high stakes at gun point
Catch'em and break undress'em tie'em
With tape no escape
The Corleone Fettucini Capone
Roam in your own zone
Get kidnapped and clapped in your dome
We go it sewn
The firm art of war is unknown
Lower your tone face it
Homicide cases get blown
Aristocrats
politician daily with diplomats
see me I'm an official mack
Lex coup triple black

[Kool Shen]
Pas de Don Corleone dans mon quartier
Mais si tu deconnes jusqu'au bout faudra jouer les bonnes
Mais y a plus de place pour les rêves
Ici quand on s'élève les rageurs te jettent l'oeil
Même les Anges te crèvent
Sache que l'union fait la force mais que la misère la divise
Et qu'en période de crise chacun mise sur son biz
Chacun sa Mafia , chacun sa mille-fa
Même l'état fonctionne comme ça
Que d'la gouille-ma déguisée en secrets d'états

[Chorus]
[Foxy Brown] The Firm, baby
[NTM] Chacun sa Mafia , chacun sa mille-fa
Aujourd'hui ça se passe comme ça
[Foxy Brown] The Firm, baby
[NTM] Chacun sa Mafia
[Nas] Nas with NTM yo the Firm connect

[Nas]
Yo my mind is seeing through your design
Like blind fury
I shine jewelry sippin' on crusted grapes
We lust papes
And push cakes
Inside the casket at just's wake
It's sickening he just finish bidding upstate
And now the project
Is talking that somebody gotta die shit
It's logic
As long as it's nobody that's in my clique
My man smoke
Know how to expand coke
And Mr coffee
Feds cost me 2 mil to get the system off me
Life's a bitch
But god forbid the bitch divorce me
I be flooded with ice or hell fire kid scorch me
Cuban cigars
Meetin' foxy at the mars
Movin' cars
Your top poppy Sr Escobar

Pour tous mes peeps, je le balance avec mes tripes
J'applique
Et nous affecte, cherche pas, y'a même plus rien qui nous implique
Même la vie nous tient a bout de bras
On oeuvre dans l'ombre
Ayant conscience de notre force
La force du nombre
C'est comme ça qu'on prime dans cette putain de société parallele,
On a le vent dans le dos prêt a voler de nos propres ailes
Chez moi y'a pas de trou , pas...
Non y'a pas de place pour tout ça
Dans mon quartier mon gars
J'ai vue que des gosses qui se bousillent en bas

[Chorus x2]

[Joey Starr] Seine-Saint-Denis Style

[Foxy Brown: this verse was removed in the radio/video edit]
In a black camaro
Firm deep all my niggas hail the black esparo
Wallabees be the apparel
Through the darkest tunnels
I got visions of multimillions in the biggest bundle
In the lex pushed by my nigga Jungle
He money bags got moet shan dor
Bundle In 62
They ain't got a clue what we about to do
My whole team we shittin' hard like czar
Sosa, Foxy Brown, Cormega and Escobar
I keep a fat marquis piece
Laced in all the illest snake skin
Armani sweaters carolina herarra
Be the firm baby, from BK to the bridge
My nigga wiz operation firm biz
so what the deal is
So let's see, if we flip this other key
Then that's more for me
Mad coke and mad leak
Plus a five hundred
Cut in half is two-fifty
Now triple that times 3
We got three-quarters of another key
The Firm baby, volume one uh!

[NTM] Seine-Saint-Denis Style [x3]
Suprême NTM Nas dans la place
Seine-Saint-Denis Style ... [fading out]

[this section is a translation of the French verses in the song]

[Kool Shen]
No Don Corleone in my area
But if you fuck up you'll have to do dirt
But there's no time for dreamin'
here when you go up, jealous people come
even angels want you dead
know unity is power but wisery divides
and in time of crisis, everybody watch its own business
Every man to his Mafia, every man to his family
Even the government is working like this
only scheming hidden as state secret

[Joey Starr]
for all my peeps, I finger him
I act
it affects us, don't look, we're not implicated in anything anymore
We act in the shadow
Being aware of our power
the fact that we are numerous
That's how we live in this fuckin' parallel society
We got the wind in our back ready to fly with our own wings
here is no hole, no...
No time for all this
In my area man
I only saw children killing themselves downstair

Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
