Deuce A Quarter lyrics

Chorus:
In my deuce and a quarter feelin funky funky fine
And Im rockin that stupid shit
In my deuce and a quarter feelin funky funky fine
And Im rockin that stupid shit
Rollin in my deuce deuce 5
Convertible top down so I can see the honeys passin me by
Its a beautiful day in my neighborhood
But 5 or 10 minutes, a criminal puts me in a bad mood
And some would say thats just a black mans perspective
But nowaday, I find that its reflective
Of what I see goin down everyday
My brothers and my sisters gettin played
So we revert 2 committin dope, many brothers get hurt
By another brother who dont like salt in his dirt
Cuz in the streets, see, thats the way it is
U keep your mouth shut and stay out of other peoples biz
See, the system wasnt made 4 me or u
And as a matter of fact, it wasnt made 4 a poor white who...
Gets their weekly hit
Or should I say that weekly check and start depending on that shit like a glass dick
These are some of the feelings that Im holdin
But everythings fine while Im rollin...

Chorus

(dont everyday)

How many, how many times must we commit crimes
Against people no better off than us, but in our own minds?
A-havin it, grabbin it, tastin it
And when u step off, I finally rub your face in it
See, the locals preacher is not suited 4 the have-nots
The poor get poorer and the rich continue 2 clock ... not!
That means u end up with the booty
And we all know a broke man is a man with no friends
And thats basically the way society is
And money talk, pusher walk and sleepin on the politics
Soon we must live 2 consolidate
As we continue 2 consume instead of producin, seal our on fate
(in my deuce and a quarter feelin funky funky fine)
People right now really dont give a damn
(and Im rockin that stupid shit)
Cuz in the 20 mile radius, theres probably not one black and...
Hispanic taken 4 granted and left 2 clean their own shit up, huh
No need 4 panic, Im out
Thats bullshit!

Chorus

In my... in my... in my...
Rockin that stupid shit
Rockin... rockin... rockin that stupid shit
