Pharcyde – Otha Fish lyrics

Yeah, bam, bam, bam, heyya, whassup, yeah

We was like that you know

Yeah, and I bet you got layed back

Yeah, i'ma uh, I'm a just sit in here for a couple of hours

Man, don't sweat it, yo, we gonna catch some stuff, dude

Oh no, I'm kinda tired

Nah, we got a basket, we're gonna fill this basket before we go, yo

Aight, bro

Cause there are otha fish...

[slim kid tre]

It took a second to register up in my branium

My dome, my head, my skull, my cranium

My eyes have had enough, it was time to do some talkin

I had to creep through the hound-dogs that were stalkin

This slimmy caught me peepin, this means she wasn't sleepin

Although I was, so she crept in like a hawk

In a minute's time, we adjourned to the floor

Ooh! I hit a high note cause of the way that she was walkin

We got into the groove, I didn't bust no, uh, hip-hop moves

I just kept it nice and smooth

Next thing you know, we got together, word, I thought we'd be forever

Didn't have an um-ber-ella, now I'm soaked in stormy weather

Whether two birds of a feather fly or fall it'll be together

Never sympin, and leave your love life limp

There'll be no suicide attempts for this slim-trim kid

'cause you know there's otha fish in the sea, that is, in the sea

In the sea that is

(chorus 3x)

(in the sea) you know there's otha fish in the sea that is

I reminisce, try to clear up all the myths

For an imaginary kiss with you again

Not even friends, though I wish that I could mend

Like a tailor and be olive oyl's number one sailor

I ams what I am, still I falls like an anvil

She's heavy on the mind sometimes it's more than I can handle

But men aren't supposed to tumble into the den b

Macho, but I hancho like pancho will give in

Family oriented, but not oriental

A dame is supposed to claim ya even if you drive a pinto

A hero is a sandwich, and a manwich is a meal

A marriage is a paper, are they fakin or for real?

What's the deal dabbers? will you go tumbling after

Your man and take a stand or will you help him roll faster?

The reason why I ask you is because I'm sick of this

Bitch lickin drip drip from a niggaz benefits

He doesn't even suit ya and he's surely not ya size

I'm surprised that you slept on a harvest worldwide

And when ya open up ya eyes, babe, my mate, I really wish

That ya don't bruise a limb, as ya swim with otha fish in the sea

In the sea that is

(chorus 3x)

Now, if there ain't no mountain high enough

Why ain't you climbin up?

My hand has been extended every since the day I lent it to ya

I thought I knew ya, but I didn't even know ya

Bro, you're stupid, cause ya thought you'd catch a cupid

And you found that love ain't two wiffs of shit

So I resign or quit

It ain't even about the hips, or the lips or the tits or

Even the pussywhip, elizabeth, this is it

Because I slipped and I tripped into a shoe that didn't fit

And now the next man is stealing my heart away

I'd charge him like a bull, but his pull never fades me

The kid is going crazy, they steppin with my lady

They workin on a baby, I'm pushin up the daisies, but

Hey diddle diddle, I won't play second fiddle

To no man and stand firm on this

And seal up all the bliss with a big juicy kiss

Just call me big gibraltor miss

No, I won't diss, I'm just like on to otha fish in the sea

In the sea that is

(chorus 3x)

You know there's otha, you know that there's otha

(chorus repeats 20x)

In the sea, baby (4x)

    One of the most deep hip hop joints I haveever had the pleasure of enjoying. This song starts with the way many of us find a honey. Scoping at the club just dumbfounded by some hotty that caught your eye, but she noticed you as well. Things progress, words, dancing and then serious moves into a relationship. What kills me the most is the way that slim kid tre' actually calls out the girl he wrote this about. "Elizabeth" put some hurt into this man. She left him and now she's pressing with her new man to have a family. I think slim and liz must of got married because of the "a marriage is a paper" line. I just like when artists put it all out there personally like this joint did. One of my favorite songs ever. We miss you Pharcyde!
