Quis Vandross – Dead Man lyrics

[Intro]
News Clip
They playing a dirty game out here
These streets don't love nobody
Quis Vandross

[Hook 1]
Chasing racks exhausted
Stacked it up then lost it
Tryin to dodge these laws
Stack some then floss it
Getting paid like bosses
Keep the bad vibes off me
Gotta be so cautious
Your own niggas get salty
Your own niggas get salty
When your hot like coffee
They play the game to real
X you out then cross you
If he's talking then off him
Because if you get caught talking
You a dead man walking
Dats a dead man walking

[Verse 1]
I can't even trust my fam
That's the reason why I'm jammed
Had the block going ham
Mixing soda with the sand
Getting rich was the plan
Every week acouple grand
Nobody really gave a damn
Nobody really gave a damn
When I was in the county jail
All alone in a cell
Ain't nobody send me mail
A hundred racks for my bail
Niggas hate to see you doing well
Put the Federales on my trail
Flush the work and toss the scale
Only pussy niggas tell
My homies ain't really my homies
Catch them slipping get popped up
They're all for you when you're gwapped up
Trying to fuck on my bitch when I'm locked up
Dope charges got me facing major years
I Pay my lawyer Grady off I bet he make them charges disappear
Hate my momma had to see my
Face all on da news and
Feds say I'm selling bricks but
They ain't got nothing to prove it
15 co-defendants 15 niggas snitching
Ain't no talking on the phone I know they're listening
Got the cheapest pidgin ain't no competition
Want that good good come get what you're missing

[Hook 2]
Chasing racks exhausted
Stacked it up then lost it
Tryin to dodge these laws
Stack some then floss it
Getting paid like bosses
Keep the bad vibes off me
Gotta be so cautious
Your own niggas get salty
Your own niggas get salty
When your hot like coffee
They play the game to real
X you out then cross you
If he's talking then off him
Because if you get caught talking
You a dead man walking
Dats a dead man walking

[Outro]
News Clip
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oohhhow
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
That's a dead man walking
Shit get real man
That's a dead man walking
