- Going to Philly-
Everybody wants to feel important but they're not willing to endure the rigors of the mission
We can't sit home watching television and think welfare is going to rectify our condition
Fronting like celebrities and making babies on top of babies and can't feed the ones we already have
We can make room for the rats and the roaches and our pit bulls make a nice bed for our pet fleas
At the end of the week we buy beer and dog food with our food stamps
While the children get a balanced breakfast of potato chips and Kool-Aid
Everybody is trying to get rich quick, playing Quick Pick...
But the next man is always the winner
That game makes money off of poor people's misery and misery loves company
That's why people that live alone talk a lot!
I didn't get here in an inner tube just to become shark bait over the Atlantic
I was born here!!!!
In the core of the apple, at the pit of the borough
I hung out with the rejects and the down trodden but this city was rotten before I was begotten
So I ask you, am I the eye sore
Just because I saw rats bigger than cats
And a cool cat was the terminology to describe a friend,
back in ‘76
But now he's my dog
my girl is my bitch
and my friends are my niggers
I live underneath the under, at the bottom of the low
I was eavesdropping on army ants as I tried to find a source of unity
I bought a bus ticket, can't take it to the hereafter
So I just settled in Philly
And when I got there the same shit was going on,
So I came back
And the minute I stepped off the bus all I could hear was
Excuse me, Brother
Pardon me, Black
Do you have a quarter?
Do you have a nickel?
Do you have a dime?
Do you have a cigarette?
Do you have a light?
Do you have the time?
Pray to Jesus
Pray to Jehovah
Pray to Jah
Pray to Allah
Pray to Guiliani because he thinks he's God !
99.9 percent of the people in this world are convincing back stabbers!
Don't eat sugar
Don't eat salt
Don't eat pork
Don't eat meat
Save the dolphins
Save the whales
Save the children
Save the rain forest
If life is a game, whose playing?
If we're a race, whose winning?
Being that we're at the door step of technology, Scientists are trying to mock the womb of a woman and create children without the act of sex
Viagra will be for some rich jerk that just wants to get his dick up
Then jack off in a jar and freeze his bastards to insure he has an heir to his crown
Everyone listen up...
Every mind is a world and only you can make you happy
Just don't bother me with it!!!
