"Informer"

[Intro: MC Shan & Snow]
What's up man, hey yo what's up
Yeah what's going on here?
Sick and tired of 5-0 running up on the block here
You know what I'm saying?
Yo, Snow they came around here looking for you the other day
(Word?) word, bust it!

[Hook: Snow]

A licky boom boom down
‘Tective man a say, say daddy me Snow me stab someone down the lane
A licky boom boom down

From that point on me reach my destination
Where the destination reachin outta east detention, where dey

[Hook: Snow]

[Interlude]
Why wo ee? why wo ee? an' wo ee an' wo ee?

[Verse 5: MC Shan]
Me sitting 'round cool with my dibbie-dibbie girl
Police knock my door, lick up my pal
Rough me up and I can't do a thing
Pick up my line when my telephone ring
Take me to the station black up my hands
Trail me down cause I'm hanging with the Snowman
What I'm gonna do? I'm backed and I'm trapped
Slap me in the face and took all of my gap
They have no clues and they wanna get warmer
But Shan won't turn informer

[Hook: Snow]
Informer, ya' no say daddy me Snow me I go blame
A licky boom boom down
‘Tective man a say, say daddy me Snow me stab someone down the lane
A licky boom boom down
Informer, ya' no say daddy me Snow me I go blame
A licky boom boom down
‘Tective man a say, say daddy me Snow me stab someone down the lane
A licky boom boom down

[Outro]
Diggity dum, diggity diggity dum, an' wo ee, an wo, an wo ee

Conversely, the song was included in Pitchfork's 2010 list of "the seven worst U.S. number one singles of the 90s".
