Andre Nickatina – Eyes Of A Child lyrics


When I was lil A child just goin ta beat
We was playin football in tha middle of the street
I was like mike rosheer
Had the coast clear
I run around and feel clowned wit no fear
I'm innocent showin no love
Ten years old exposed to drugs
Swept under tha rug were baseball cards and dirt bikes
As young as I was I had to learn life
All along everything for me was an experience
Side tracked never taking anything serious (never)
A lil homie just wanna run free
Live life as long as he could see


Through the eyes of A child
I see my own mother get wild
And for me she start A whole crowd
My report card file
D's and F's all the time
Hustle on my childhood mind
Through the eyes of A boy
I want to catch santa claus creep
And scare him when he thought I was sleep
So young in the heart
I wanted to be billy ray valentine
Comin with tha fly lines
For tha ladis all tha time
Filled with hope
They asked me did I like boats
Got seasick and said no
From tha heart of A kid
I acted just like ali we aint friends
I'm burnin that bridge
That's how it is


At school the cons sport 14TH and new jordans
Sportin 501's the crease was important
It's all in the day pay the principle A visit
I never could pass cut class like scissors
On tha phone 'cause I'm all that
Roam tha halls flash my fake hall pass
I can get away with anything clown the teachers
Or make A new enemy step on sneakers


Through the eyes of A child
I don't understand the word no
I don't understand stop
I just understand go
As A child
I used to see lil crack vowels
And niggaz sayin how you like me now
Hair to the sky
What you sayin freak I'm fly
Wearin basketball shorts oversized in the eyes of A boy
Drug dealers really don't struggles
Playas go to jail and get muscle
Slide down tha pole
If I could be A fire man
You know cursin like A devil in tha choir band
No desire man justa care free boy
Throwin fits if I don't get A toy
In tha eyes of A child
Cartoon is just like jesus
If you don't believe this
Man you should see this
As A child A kid is A pal
And you put em in you memory fowl for right now!
