Slimm Calhoun – The Skinny lyrics

Well he's laughing right now but I know that he cries

He says it's changin, goes like the wind, just like the wind

[Slimm Calhoun]

I was born with the mission, supposed to be impossible

All my life I've heard plenty of shit, lots of bull

Like you just a nigga, you'll never get a job

So you best be at sellin dope or rob

Learn how to shoot a nine before I come around

Stay down on the ground, sackin every dime

Know a nigga seein hard time

Tryin to skip these lines so everything I knew was big time

Before you slip n slide in the dirt

Great crime, til the church fell down on the niggaz on the block

I gotta get mine to get serious when I'm focused

Call the curtain and misplaced all the searchin

I got partner servin life

Jackin for small change or cause they foundthe habit or couldn't maintain

We're all lookin for better things

And I heard it in my dream, as she sings

[Chorus:]

If I give you an inch will you try for the yard

Yeah, if my eyes see it

Well he's laughingright now but I know that he cries

He says it's changin, goes like the wind, just like the wind

[Slimm Calhoun]

Situation haters, tryin to superface me and my cousin

Like a dirty half a dozen was buzzin and caught duckin

Slippin with mine ain't safe

God don't let 'em take me

He's bucks shake, too late for Pammy, she had to get goin

Like an escaper, it was like a train when I was away

Thank the lord for savin me

Took one for the real trip, too greedy

I tell you y'all niggazis shady, so packed out

Y'all play me, fight me with niggazthat sick and consistant

I'm tired of all these kids pullin the trigger to show what they did

Kids in world is so fucked up

Little Joey thought he had to make a kill to be cool

And his best friend dropped out of school

Now where could he be,

Somewhere in the streets slangin keys? I don'tknow

But it's to me you motherfuckers,

In the dope hangin just as many tryin to rap

And I heard a sayin, in my dream

[Chorus:]

[Slimm Calhoun]

Currently bitch niggaz is still doin the same shit

Drivebys, get some for-fos since birth

Clickin work, now, who ain't gonna get hurt

Bystanders, innocent, gettin caught in the firecrossin

And lives bein lost in the mix of ammo blastin, cars crashin, gas

Mashin, guns stashin while mothers cry

The fools laughin, get shit happen

[chorus 2x]
