Got arrested at the Mardi Gras for jumping on a float
The Mardi Gras is New Orleans, Louisiana's version of "carnival". The three day, city-wide party is full of parades and what-not.

*oowah oowah* is my disco call
The above sample could come from any number of places, since it was a fairly common disco call: two possible sources: "Let's All Chant" - Michael Zager Band (1978) and "8th Wonder" - The Sugarhill Gang (1980). Since this same Sugarhill Gang song gets sampled a little later in the song, it's quite possible it came from there.
MCA *hu-huh* I'm gettin' rope y'all
Routines I bust and the rhymes that I write
And I'll be busting routines and rhymes all night

You heard my style I think you missed the point
*it's the joint *
Mike D with your bad self running things
What's up with your bad breath onion rings
I'm Mike D and I'm back from the dead
A rumor going around during the hiatus between Licensed to Ill and Paul's Boutique was that Mike D had OD'd, been murdered, killed by Run-DMC, or whatever version you heard.
