Palmdale Lyrics - Afroman

Review The Song (4)



Just like bums
we used to stay
in the slums of LA by the way
Gang-bangers killin' each other for rep,
sellin' rock cocaine on my doorstep
Had a ball to bounce plus a bike to ride,
but my mamma never would let me play outside.
But when I got enrolled in elementary school,
started bangin' like a fuckin' fool.
So cool,
throwin' up gang signs to the gangster beat,
Shottie aimed at me from across the street
Mamma came home, said she got a good job.
Daddy did too.
Now they don't squab.
Financially, we improvin'.
sponsored links
2 months later, son, we movin'.
No more duckin' from shotgun shells.
Bought a two-story house in East Palmdale.
(give it to me now.)

Palmdale, (Hell yeah.) come back to me.
I need you and I love you, baby.
Palmdale, come back to me.
(Check it out, check it out, check it out.)

No more rats and no more roaches,
livin' next door to football coaches.
Now I got a new place to sell my crack.
Now I got little white kids to jack.
I stopped wearin' blue, went trippin' on red.
Too busy squabbin' with the skinheads.
Stupid questions, distract the class.
Rubbin' little white girls on the ass.
I didn't really care if I passed or failed, I knew I was headed for the NFL,
Until the playoff game, shoulder got hurt.
I thought about my future, layin' in the dirt.
I can't jump, I can't flinch.
Superstar player, ridin' the bench.
Graduate from school? Don't make me laugh.
I got an F+ in basic math.
(give it to me now.)

Palmdale, (Hell, yeah.) come back to me.
I gotta do one song for my neighborhood. Bucccoooc!
Palmdale, come back to me.
(check it out.)

I knew I couldn't make it in the white man's world,
so I bought me some khakis and a Jheri curl.
I knew I couldn't make it to the NFL,
I went to East Palmdale and started slingin' yell.
Fo' sho'!
I was makin' crazy dough.
Shoulda dropped outta school a long time ago.
Bought a cell phone, like a nut.
Now I deliver Pizza Hut.
I drunk whisky and Bacardi.
I sold dope to anybody.
Me and my homies sold dubs and dimes,
took turns bustin' rhymes just to pass the time.
A white man drove up to my spot.
He said, “Hey, homeboy, what you got?”
I put a fat rock inside his hand.
About 25 sheriffs jumped out the van.
(“Get down, punk.”)

Palmdale, (Hell, yeah) come back to me.
I need you and I love you, baby.
Palmdale, come back to me.
(check it out, check it out, check it out.)

Can't get drunk.
Can't get blunted.
LA County, 95 hundred.
Crips wanna take my All-stars.
Bloods wanna eat my Snicker bars.
Them panther wolves don't want none,
but the Mexican's straight on one.
Them Essays, catorces, treces always try to test me,
So I jumped off the bed,

cause I ain't no punk.
Jammed his head up against the bunk.
Socked that Cholo in his chin.
Black mutha-fuckas scared to jump in.
Sheriff broke it up when we hit the floor.
I kept talkin' shit cause I want some more.
Back in town, we get along with the brown.
Now I'm in jail, they tryin' to beat me down.
Jail is hell, but I'll adapt.
Won't hesitate to get in a scrap.
'Cause I'm down for mine, and that's for certain,
sittin' in the hole with my knuckles hurtin'.
(Palmdale)

Palmdale, (Hell, yeah.) come back to me.
I need you and I love you, baby.
Palmdale, come back to me.
(check it out, homeboy.)

Now I got a fucked up life.
Two bad kids and a naggin' wife.
Dead end job at the airport.
Check too short to pay the house note.
Turn on the TV,
then I see different homeboys that went to school with me
Playin' in the NFL.
We used to kick back in East Palmdale.
Rodney Williams.
Lorenz Tate.
Zeno plays for Colorado State.
I wish my homeboys much success,
but at the same time, I still get depressed.
Walkin' through the wind with a cup full of gin
thinkin' 'bout things
that coulda, woulda, shoulda been.
I wipe my tears, sip my beers, wish good luck to my peers.
(Palmdale.)

Palmdale, come back to me.
I need you and I love you, baby.
Palmdale,(Palmdale) come back to me.
Cause that's where my heartache began, heartache began.

Palmdale, come back to me.
I need you and I love you, baby.
Palmdale, come back to me.
Cause that's where my heartache began, heartache began.

Palmdale, come back to me.
(Hey, all the homeboys on the football team, where y'all at man?)
Palmdale, come back to me.
(Hey, wherever you at in the world, I don't care if you in Japan, Africa… hey,
you know how we used to do it, man. Hey, hey, hey.)
Yo, let me get a Palm (Palm!)
Yo, let me get a Dale (Dale!)
Yo, what do we sell? (Yell!)
Ey, where we finna go? (We gonna go back to jail!)
(x4)

Dale. Palmdale. (Hey, everybody just clap your hands.)
Dale. Palmdale. (C'mon, c'mon, c'mon. Buci-buci-bucccoooc!)
Dale. Palmdale.
Dale. (Where them Falcons at?) Palmdale. (It ain't over 'til the fat man
sings.)
Dale. (Little Rock can't get none. What, what?) Palmdale.
Dale. Palmdale.
[fade out.]

Palmdale | Reviewer: Carta | 11/29/07

Not only the best song on Good Times but the best song Afroman has ever recorded... This song is up there with the greatest rap songs of all time... One of my favorite rap songs ever :)

Palmdale | Reviewer: Lo | 9/10/07

Not as well known as some of Afroman's other songs. But this one is my favorite. Great beat, such a good song!

Palmdale | Reviewer: Andrew | 12/10/06

Palmdale off of the good times, might be the most underrated rap song of all time. On a cd that included Because I got High palmdale steals the show. The song showcases Afroman's prowess as a story teller as well as his his tight rhymes. Get the song or but the entire cd on afromanmusic.com for only $5
