The Secret Handshake – I Wish lyrics

Chorus: I wish I was little bit taller
I wish I was a baller
I wish I had a girl who looked good
I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
And a '64 Impala (4 times)

I wish I was like six-foot-nine
So I could get with Leoshi
Cause she don't know me but she's really fine
You know I see her all the time
Everywhere I go, and even in my dreams
I can scheme of ways to make her mine
Cause I know she's living phat
And her boyfriend's tall and he plays ball
So how am I gonna compete with that
Cause when it comes to playing basketball
I'm always last to be picked and that's it or never picked at all
So I just lean up on the wall or sit in the bleachers with girls
Who came to watch their men ball
Dang y'all! I never understood
Why the jocks get all the fly girls and
And me I get the hood rats
I tell 'em scat, skittle, skibobble
Got hit with a bottle, put up in the hospital
I confess it's a shame when you're livin' in a city
The size of a box and nobody knows your name

I wish I was little bit taller
I wish I was a baller
I wish I had a girl who looked good
I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
And a '64 Impala (4 times)

Now something has gotta change
Cause nobody knows my name
Everything has stayed the same
I keep doin' this
Now some things have gotta change
Cause nobody knows my name
Everything is gonna change
Oooooooooh!
Now something is gonna change
Cause nobody knows my name
Everything's about to change
Oooooooooh!
Now some things have gotta change
Cause nobody knows my name

I wish... I wish...

I wish I was little bit taller
I wish I was a baller
I wish I had a girl who looked good
I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
And a '64 Impala (4 times)
