Oh my gosh yes
AK's killin em
Make they heads bob like Dylan
Am expressly tictacticall until I am
Runnin more bass than Simenon
And when I say Simenon I mean Paul
Not the stuff'll make your throat taste worse than cinnamon buns
So you better have more than riddim and guns
And you better make tea when the Tillerman comes
So said I one day and I meant it
Not quite literally, but I meant it
Took some time to rhyme and present it
If it caused crime should I prevent it?
See, this dude wrote me, said his girlfriend
Discovered he had cheated and she wants revenge
She said she loved that song I wrote about how men
Should all be castrated, so I said
You better tell her no
Someone better tell her no
Try her on the telephone
Video highway
You better tell her no
Someone better tell her no
Stop her fore she does it
Don't let her go my way
And if she bats her eyelids
Don't be fooled, and don't be scared
Just shake your head and tell her no
Someone's gotta tell her no
Just remember when you tell her, don't tell her come my way
Now, I have lived an interesting life
In the Chinese sense
There has been strife
Cos I lacked sense
Of the common kind
But if you wanna rhyme
Well you should just do that
I got an email off a girl who
Said she loves what I'm doing and she loves what I do
That she got all my songs and she read Weekender
Since then she's been on a bender
She said she quit school at 16
Cos I said I did
Is involved in the drug scene
That's what I did
She said she's gonna come to London
That's where I fled
That shes not too young
Man that's where I said
Now I'm not proud of all those years
I lost living the rock star cliche
So if your daddy calls me too
I'll tell him like the other dude
Do as I say not as I say I do fool
