Shaquille O'neal – It Was All A Dream lyrics
Intro: Shaq

Yo yo
This jam right here dedicated to all the little bad knuckleheads runnin'
Gettin' in trouble
Just follow your dreams and you'll be aight

Chorus: Peter Gunz

Yo it was all a dream
Deprising and uprising my schemes
But suprising realzing that
Yo it was all a dream
I kept my head above the water for cream
But now I'm turnin' all heads when I step on the scene
(yesterday it was just a dream
never thought this could ever happen to me)
It was all a dream
(how a change came around in my life)

Verse 1: Shaq

I went back and forth from ??? to chilltown JC
At first it's just me and mommy
Then Phil came along, he bought a basketball go to the park
Get your game on Shaq but have your butt back by dark
I was acting like the doc, my game was the joint
Dribbilin' between my legs like Norm Nixon at the point
Materalism kept them other kids biz'm
While I was selling my game they was sellin' izm
Words by Phil be a leader not a follwa
Don't let the masses of technolgy swallow ya
La-d da-d we all likes to party
I'm followin' my dreams I'm gonna be somebody


Verse 2: Shaq

Now check it, commodores was my favorite joint
Til I heard Planet Rock on the bop, that jam's on point
I used to rhyme in the mirrior, like I was down with UTFO
Doug E. Fresh singin' a show
For a big kid I had crazy rythem
Size 13 suede crews with thick shoe strings in 'em
I was the baddest popa, baddest rhyme dropper
Bustin' more mills than Superman to helicopters
I had the name buckle kids used to jock
Public Enemy came out, I had the clock
My favorite jam was by Big Daddy ain't no half steppa
My mic sounds nice check 1-2 by Salt N' Pepa
Heavy D, Rakim, Eric B, Ricky D
Scott LaRock and BDP
I never knew 'em but I used to look up to 'em
Battles in the park in the dark I ran through 'em


Verse 3: Shaq

Somebody wake me up this can't be real
Lookin' in the paper, Shaq's about to make a hundred mil
Somebody smack me, it's gotta be fake
20,000 square foot crib on the back of a lake
Five movie deal with Disney
Damn I'm getting busy like Dizzy Calepsi
20 mil check from Pepsi
Let's see, red benz and black porsche
??? room suburban with roof-top hole and of course
Boat with my name on the side so I can ride on the water
With my wife and my baby daughter
I oughta write a book so y'all can see
How easy it is to be who the hell you wanna be
This is a message from Shaq, react bring it on back
Follow your dreams and it's like that

Outro: Shaq

Yeah, yeah
Ken Dawg, rock rock on
Yeah, Peter Gunz, rock rock on
Yeah, Lord Tariq, rock rock on
My man Hassan, rock rock on
To my dawg K Mitchell, rock rock on
To my man Frank E, rock rock on
Homegirl Nyre, rock rock on
To my little baby, rock rock on
To all my homey lovers, rock rock on
And to my favorite mother, rock rock on
And to my damn daddy, rock rock on
And to my golf caddy, rock rock on
To my man Fred LaGwynn, rock rock on
To all my enemies, rock rock on
I'm following my dreams, rock rock on
To all the little children, rock rock on
Rock on
Rock on
