Guru – Transit Ride lyrics

Watch the closing doors
Watch the closing doors
Watch the closing doors
Watch the closing doors

Right now I'm gonna take you for a ride
Hold on tight so you don't slip or slide
This train is packed, you don't get no seat, yup
You gotta stand on your tired feet

Where we goin' don't worry, you'll be there in a hurry
But you better watch your pockets 'cause the thieves work quickly
This is a New York transit thing
Don't wear too much gold and hide your diamond rings

And don't smile at anyone
'Cause people out here, they like to travel with handguns
You say you like this trip, well are you sure?
You better step lively and watch the
Watch the closing doors

Watch the closing doors
And I'ma watch the closing doors
Watch the closing doors

Here we go, as we ride through the underground
Coming from Uptown, taking you downtown
Headed for Brooklyn, Brooklyn, the planet
Somebody stinks in here, I hope you can stand it

Homeless people everywhere, holdin' cups for change
And if you don't have none, they may look at you strange
But this is all part of the scene
And yo, check those kids 'cause they're startin' to scheme

See them lookin' at you up and down?
Oh yeah, they can tell that you're somebody from out of town
Think they won't harm you? Well, they might
And that ain't right, but everyday is like a fight

Watch the closing doors
Watch the closing doors
Watch the closing doors
Watch the closing doors

Ah ahh, ahh ahh ahh
I can't quit, I gotta do what I must
'Cause I can take you on a ride with the lyrics I bust
'Cause I'm a master, try to diss and I'll blast ya
Any wack mc that steps up, is gettin' plastered

Straight against the wall 'cause I don't stall
I give 'em drama and trauma till they all fall
And for those who don't know about the city life
It's where we take no pity and the kiddies are trife

Takin' the train is just part of it
The next stop is Brooklyn, you're comin' to the heart of it
You never know what will occur
So just keep to yourself and watch the closing doors

Step lively
Step lively
Step lively

And I'ma watch the closing doors
I watch the closing doors

B are double O K L Y N, New York City
Takin' you on a transit ride with my man, Branford
And I'm out
