There's a part later on the verse, sort of in the background, that goes like this:

Play twice.

FIRST GUITAR SOLO (between second and third verses)

To get it to really sound right, you'll need to have a delay on as well as a Wah going
the whole time.

SECOND GUITAR SOLO (between second and third chorus)

For this part, Tom is using a Whammy pedal--an octave up I believe--with a delay,
rocking the Whammy down into each note (then pulling up right after each note)

e|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------|
D|-15--17--18--20--22----22--20--18--20--17----|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------|
G|------------16---------------------------|
D|-19---16---------16----16--17--19--21----|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

Continuing with the Whammy (held down throughout) and the delay, this time he plays
the notes as harmonics.

e|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|
G|----7--12--7-----7--12--7-----7--12--7-----7--12--7--|
D|-5------------5------------5------------5------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

Now for this part he lets go of the Whammy and just kind of goes nuts with the delay
and as such it's a bit overwhelming to try to dissect (though it sounds awesome)
but here goes. It is basically a bunch of hammer-ons progressing up the strings,
that much I can tell.

e|-------------------------------------------------|

G|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------5h6h7-5h6h7-5h6h7-5h6h7-|

B|-------------8h9h10-8h9h10-----------------|
G|-7h8h9-7h8h9-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------|

Delay off for this part, bring back in the Wah

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

E|-------------------------------------|

This next part is weird, I think what he's doing is his trademark DJ scratch but this
time with a fast, short delay effect on top of it. For those who don't know, to do
said DJ effect, you'll need a guitar with multiple volume knobs. Turn one to zero and
then use the toggle switch as a killswitch to flick back in forth in an awesome
rhythmic fashion while rubbing the strings with your other hand, Wah depressed
the whole time for white noise.

Wah stays on for the next part.

G|----------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

For the last part, strum the 21st fret on the high E string rapidly while slowly
leaning in on the Wah pedal. Delay is on and echoes out into the final chorus.

LYRICS

Well I gotta new kinda squaredance rap
Gonna talk smack, flash my gat
I'm finna spit and hold my dick
And heat shit up like a thermostat
Grab your partner by the chaps
Give your partner a pimp slap
To symbolize the ghetto trap
Step to the right, give three clabs
Kids jam-packed in tenement shacks
Ain't shit cooking on the stove but crack
This is the bat this hell begat
'Cuz bosses are cleptomaniacs

[Chorus]
Two by two, promenade
Duck from a B-1 bomber raid
Ain't bout the plans Osama made
Banks getting paid off petrol trade
Circulate, dosey-do
How much cash could an O-Z grow
Till all are fed and all have beds
My skin is black, my star is red

FBI coming round outside
Which one of us finna die tonight
Is we finna fight over crumbs to bite
Or make a whole mutherfuckin world ignite
Everybody throw them bows
Right upside your partner's nose
Right now you got bloody clothes
Crabs in the barrel, so the story goes
Think of all their savage acts
Grabbing scratch from average cats
Bueraucrats with strings attached
Walk in place, light the match

Everybody get down low
Bout the level of your toes
These dance moves we usually do
Are not the ones that we have chose
Grab on to that beat and grind
And try your best to stay alive
We can run but we can't hide
Might as well just stay and fight
