  • Tragedy, mm hm mm hmm misery and triumph
    Piss poor, you know?
    Catastrophic moments
    They wanna know why I'm so seasoned, y'know
    Welfare recipient, there's a reason why I'm seasoned

    My folks out there in the ghetto, the slums,
    The projects, and the beat down, renovated apartment complexes
    Smell me!

    Uh, you in a new school whip
    Custom painted candy apricot butter
    I'm in an antique old school four do'
    Muffler draggin beat up duster
    With scrapes and scratches, nicks and scars
    Y'all get to drink out of wine glasses
    We gotta drink out of jelly jars
    Down and out like four flat tires no washing machine nor dryer
    Just a pillowcase sack and a bunch of clothes wrapped
    In a sheet on our way to the laundrymat
    Will I ever get paid, can I make a dollar out of fifteen cents?
    Y'alls got it made, we broke and starvin' barely payin' the rent
    Sleepless nights, alligator t-uh-tears
    Mommy arguin wit' my daddy, daddy drunk too many beers
    911 Mr Po-Po, dey ain't happy wit' day marriage
    Pops tryna beat her down and make her have a miscarriage
    My cousin shoots the needle, she be gone for days
    She on that da-ah-diesel, she gone end up wit' AIDS
    I told her I love her I swear I just told her
    But you know what she said to me?
    Everybody got a gay or at least one dopefiend in they family
    You ain't the only one wit' a reject in yo' family
    That's real

    The reasoned the reasoned that we're seasoned
    Seasoned and we, feel our paper won't disappear
    Oh, hey it's been a long time in the bay
    With God on our side we have somethin' to say
    And through the hard times we survive the game
    Survive the game

    If y'all smell onions, that's my arms potent
    The reason I'm musty is cause, we ain't got no mo' deodorant
    The laughin' stock patna, we ain't got no cash
    Feet stinkin through my shoes in PE class
    I'm thriznew with biznein briznoke, I'm about to hiznit the griznind
    And if I get popped it ain't half no more it's 80% percent of my time
    But that's ah cha-ah-chance, that I'ma have to-ah-take
    Today my son birthday and I can't even buy a cake
    I'm so damn through-a-through, I had a JOB
    You want me to cut my perm, oh y'all gone ave to fire me
    My fellow just got out da joint, thought he might be okay
    But my fellow got out and got stapled 26 times the same damn day
    Who wanna get dunked on? In the the flatlands it ain't never too late
    Patna all we need is a piece of plywood and a milk carton crate
    What about dat shopping basket, you know I'm smart
    We can gone take the wheels off that and ma-a-make a go cart
    Yo peoples blessed you, I started from a quarter ounce
    You came in the dope game wit' a silver spoon up in yo' mouth
    Why we gotta gamble maine we hurtin', you got all the bucks
    In the ghetto we play dominoes for push ups

    The reasoned the reasoned that we are seasoned
    Seasoned and we, feel our paper won't disappear
    Oh, it's been a long time in the bay
    With God on our side we have somethin' to say
    And through the hard times we survive the game
    Survive the game

    You dig? You know
    My people just tryin' to make a way out of nowhere, you dig?
    You know, the trials and tribulations, you dig?
    It's hard times out here y'know
    Y'know we just tryin' to do our thing

    I remember when I was just a young boy
    Growin' up things was real hard for me
    No food on the table, no clothes on my back
    Lord have mercy
    But my mother told me to stay strong

    Hey, it's been a long time, in the Bay
    With God on our side we have somethin' to say
    And through the hard times we survive the game
    Survive the game
