Coolio – C U When U Get There lyrics

Verse 1: Coolio
Now I've seen places and faces
And things you ain't never thought about thinking
If you ain't peek then you must be drinking
And smokin'
Pretending not to locin' but you're brokin'
Let me get you open
Now little Timmy got his diploma and
Little Jimmy got life
And Tamika around the corner just took her first hit off the pipe
The other homie shot the other homie and ran off with his money
And when the other homies heard about it they thought that it wasfunny
But who's the dummy
Cuz, now you done lost the hustler
A down-ass brother can never by replaced by a buster
And though I got love for ya
I know I can't trust ya
Coz my crew is rollin' Hummers and your crew is rollin' dustas
And just because of that you act like you don't like the brother no more
I guess that's just the way it goes
I ain't tryina preach
I believe I can reach
But your mind ain't prepared
I'll C you when you get there

Chorus:

I'll see you when you get there
If you ever get there
See you when you get there
I'll see you when you get there
If you ever get there
See you when you get there

Verse 2: Lek Ratt (of 40 Thevz)

More temptation and faith
I guess we livin' for the day
I seen a man get swept off his feet by a boy with an ak
The situation so twisted everybody gettin lifted
I'm just tryin to take care of my kids and handle my business
Coz it way too serious so you gotta pay close attention
So you don't get caught sittin' when they come and do all the gettin'
Life is a big game so you gotta play it with a big heart
Someone's gotta run a little faster cuz we gotta later start
I'd be a fool to surrender when I know I can be a contender
And if everybody's a sinner then everybody could ba a winner
No matter you rag collar deep down we all brothers
And regardless of the times somebody up there still love us
I'm a scuffle and struggle till I'm breathless and weak
I just strived my whole life to make it to the mountain peak
Always keep reaching sure to grab on to something
I'll be there when you get there when you wit the sound bumpin'

Chorus:

I'll see you when you get there
See you when you get there
If you ever get there
If you ever get there
See you when you get there
I'll see you when you get there
See you when you get there
If you ever get there
If you ever get there
See you when you get there

Verse 3: ps (of 40 Thevz)

You need to loosen up
And live a little
And if you got kids let them know how you feelin'
For your own sake give a little
Oh, you don't want to hear that
You busy tryina stack
And keep up with the Jones's taking advantage of your own
The realest homies that you've been knowing for the longest
But some ain't missing a good thing until it's gone
Could have built an empire if not for the jealousy that divides us
We prefer to keep our eyes shut to what's right when
There's something of all that we desire
So hold your head up high if your poor and righteous
I know time seems right
And the problems seem endless
But at times of despair we gotta pull ourselves together
And if you fell you're out the game then you need to get back in it
Coz nothing worse than a quitter
You gotta face responsibility one day, my brother
So gather up your pitty and turn it to ambition
And put your vehicle and drive and stop by my side

Chorus:

I'll see you when you get there
See you when you get there
If you ever get there
When you ever get there
If you ever get there
See you when you get there
I'll see you when you get there
See you when you get there
If you ever get there
If you ever get there
See you when you get there

(Coolio)
As we walk down the road of our destiny
And the time comes to choose what shall it be
The wide and crooked, or the straight and narrow
We got one voice to give and one life to live
Stand up for something or lie down in your game
Listen to the song that we sing
It's up to you to make it big
I guess I'll see you when you see me
(chorus fade out)
