    I'm coming off the Acropolis
    to start some pandemonium
    Don't bring limp raps to
    a pimp slap symposium
    The mad gadfly, philosophy
    was my invention

    Rolling with the flyest nihilist

    And me, their French henchman

    We got the wisdom

    And the wit

    That even I couldn't question

    Dropping Western medicine

    On these East infections

    It's evident

    You've never been

    Our type of mental brethren
    We're better


    Better speakers,

    Better lovers,

    Better men

    This type of arrogance
    is sure to be expected
    From men who speak of wisdom
    with no clue of what respect is

    You westerners are sloppy,
    needing discipline in life
    You lack control of
    yourselves, and of the mic

    While we use precise strikes
    to disrupt your concentration

    Hand you an ass-whipping our
    descendants will honor for generations

    We filled a nation

    With patience

    And the presence

    For living

    And you’ll never hold a candle
    to the wisdom we've written

    Oh, I’ll give you something
    you can bow and kowtow to
    When I squat down and squeeze
    out a Tao of Pooh on Lao Tzu
    You need to take control
    of the life you’re given
    They call me Ubermensch,
    cause I’m so driven

    And I’m a freethinker
    So confronting conformists
    like you? It’s my job
    Got a sharp wit, like a spit
    that’ll skewer you like a
    Confu-shish-kebab (Oh!)
    You flubbed the mission, I'm beating
    your submissive ass into submission
    Dishing out more disses than
    letters and pamphlets and plays
    that I've been publishing

    Now that we’ve covered the two Yin and
    Yang twins, I can move onto Jackie Chan
    Sun Tzu, I’ll be picking apart
    your Wu with my method, man
    This seminal general
    isn’t so tough on the mic
    All your men must be like,
    'yo, what happened?'
    You’re pitiful lyrically
    Lucky for history, you didn’t
    author the Art of Rapping

    Bitch, I wrote the Art of War
    so you better get your guns out
    These white boys getting
    burned ‘cause guess what?
    Now the Sun’s out
    Asians spitting sick,
    but no, this isn’t SARS
    Laozi, kick the beat, now
    Confucius, drop some bars

    Let me be Candide with you, Voltaire
    French drip with the egg noodle hair
    Your ego’s just so distracting
    Free speech doesn’t
    mean just keep yapping
    And you killed God, so I gotta ask:
    Did he die of shame when
    he made your moustache?
    You try to plan a new German psyche
    But you just grew hate,
    me no Third Reichy

    And it all starts with you,
    you’re the father, Socrates
    Honestly, I think you owe both
    of your students here an apology

    I wouldn’t exactly call myself
    a student of this plebe
    Don’t make Nietzsche come over
    and put a knee up in your chi
    Cause I’m N-I-E-T-Z-S-C-H-E
    And I’ll end any motherfucker
    like my name in a spelling bee

    Plebe, bitch? I’m toxic
    like a hemlock sip
    Hang a sandal on the door
    cause you can suck Soc’s dick

    Sacrebleu, Socrates! You’re
    making things a little tense
    Come, let’s blind these Chinese hinies
    with some shiny bright enlightenment

    I'll not be taught camaraderie
    from a frog who rigged the lottery
    You make a mockery of ethics, so
    keep your fat nose in your coffee

    Let me be frank, don’t
    start beef with The Frank
    Who hangs with B. Franks,
    giving ladies beef franks

    I have turned them on themselves,
    their chaos is our opportunity

    You must remember, a bowl is
    most useful when it is empty

    Ugh, Laozi, I don’t mean no disrespect
    But you need to fill your bowl with
    some shit that makes some sense

    Oh, you don’t want to stand
    in the path of Lao Tzu today
    I’ll make you move,
    bitch, get out the way

    Yo, where in the tradition
    of rap battles is it written
    That two dudes on the same team should
    squabble like some clucking chickens?

    Man, Confucius, you always trying
    to put something in its place
    Why don’t you tell your eyebrows they
    need to fit better on your face?

    Okay, I see, you wanna
    make it like that?
    I’ll smack that warmongering
    head out of your to-go box hat
    So here’s the real golden rule,
    I’m way above you weak rookies
    Confucius say you can all
    hold these fortune cookies

    The quote about the bowl made sense, but it didn't apply to the situation of the rap battle. So it doesnt make sense to SunTzu.

    And I know German is difficult...

    But Are people really troubling with our language? C'mon it's not like it is Polish...

    (Sorry if I offended anyone, it's a regular thing that I think Polish is the most difficult Language to spell and learn, so I often use it in those situation)
