Mobb Deep – Boom Goes The Cannon... lyrics

[Intro]
Uh
Yeah

[Chorus]
Boom! goes the cannon, watch the blood and the shit-spray
How can we keep leading if the people keep retreating?
Nah
Boom! goes the cannon, push forward, no fear
We gon' win this war and run them clowns outta here
Boom! goes the cannon, watch them bodies and guns drop
Now we the real leaders, opposition retreats when
Boom! goes the cannon, push forward, no fear
We gon' take the war and run them outta here

[Verse 1]
Take it out
That's my right hand man we like to [?]
You got my back, I got your back when the sass begins
We grew up in the slums, broke bread together
When worse came to worse, rolled out the weather
Have faith, knew it couldn't be this bad forever
And once the sun shined, it could only get better
Birds of a feather, we goin' the same places
It's like [?] whatever came our way
Your kids is my kids, vice-versa
You ain't ask who you beef with, only where to burn them
Never blink a eye, you'll back down just to hold the fort down
For you'll be the strong gal, my shoulder's running wild [?]
Courtesy of [?]
And though you not here, you lookin' down at me smiling
We took an oath to keep the name afloat
We infamous forever, homie, the ultimate G.O.A.T.S

[Chorus]
Boom! goes the cannon, watch the blood and the shit-spray
How can we keep leading if the people keep retreating?
Nah
Boom! goes the cannon, push forward, no fear
We gon' win this war and run them clowns outta here
Boom! goes the cannon, watch them bodies and guns drop
Now we the real leaders, opposition retreats when
Boom! goes the cannon, push forward, no fear
We gon' take the war and run them outta here

[Verse 2]
Yeah, yeah
We are at war, no man is safe
You can't hide forever
Die on the battlefield to rise up and take power
If 32,000 troops in New York harbor
We outgunned, outmanned, and outnumbered
If 32,000 troops in New York harbor
We outplanned, out our mind pushing forward
We a powder keg about to explode
Wish we had a man like Hamilton to lighten the load
Send the word, get 'em
He want to fight, he got the hunger
Yeah, I was just like him when I was younger
Uh
Head full of fantasies, dying like a martyr, but look
Dying is easy young man, livin' is harder
There's gonna be pools of blood in New York Harbor
Rah!
Gunfire and cannonballs, it's on, son
Pools of blood in New York Harbor
Rah!
Willin' to die on Revolutionary Wardom

[Chorus]
Boom! goes the cannon, watch the blood and the shit-spray
How can we keep leading if the people keep retreating?
Nah
Boom! goes the cannon, push forward, no fear
We gon' win this war and run them clowns outta here
Boom! goes the cannon, watch them bodies and guns drop
Now we the real leaders, opposition retreats when
Boom! goes the cannon, push forward, no fear
We gon' take the war and run them outta here
