LYRICS: [spoken] Captain Chesley Sullenberger. On January 15, 2009, he landed his aircraft safely in the Hudson River in New York City after his engines were disabled by a flock of birds And sometimes, with all the jealous haters trying to bring me down, I feel like the Chesley Sullenberger of this rap game.
Goose MCs, all up in my engines Don't make me land this plane in the Hudson They got nasty intentions I got goose MCs in my engines I got goose MCs, all up in my engines Tryin' to cause some malfunctions But I'm the Captain Chesley Sullenberger of this rap game, For these goose MCs
They call him Captain Sully, Fast actin', rapidly adaptin' Sully And when life blew a fanload of crap at Sully, He did what he had to to make it happen. Sully! Uh! And if the birds never would have tried to murder him, I'm sure you and I never would have heard of him But now the man has got icon status, From dicing up geese, like a daikon radish... He's got fame, he's got his cash stacked higher Don't you get it geese? Your plan backfired! You didn't kill him, you made him stronger! Yeah, you flew up in his engine, But he slayed and conquered And if you think I'm any different, I think you're dead meat I will shred you from beaks to wings to webbed feet Hear the words coming out of my mouth: Stay up out my engines, goose! Fly south!
Goose MCs, all up in my engines They wanna bring me down for crash landings But they'll only bring me national media attention, yo, I got geese in my engines I got goose MC's in my engines They want unhappy endings But I'm the Captain Chesley Sullenberger of this rap game And you're a goose MC
Let me tell ya bout the goose MCs They're some pathetic excuse MCs Try to bring me down but no use, MCs I suggest you vamoose MCs This is a war with no truce, MCs King of the gods, I am Zeus, MCs! And in Greek mythology, Zeus used to transform himself into an ass-kicking swan....
Don't make me swan up on you goose rappers! Swan up! Swan up, don't make me swan up! Swan up! Swan up! Swan up, don't make me swan up! I am the Captain Chesley Sullenberger of this rap game, Don't make me swan up! Geese! Do you not understand me? In your language: honk honk honk, don't make me swan up!
Goose MCs, all up in my engines! Whoa! Don't make me swan up! I got Canadian avians all up in my engines, Don't make me swan up! I got beef with these goose rappers.... You know it makes me so angry... I got angry beef.... It's like a sullen burger... For these goose MCs.
