  • Now a joke is a joke and funny games are chill
    But this isn't funny y'all this is straight up ill
    Now there's a limit to humor and this is goin too far
    I ain't laughin no more y'all now who stole my car

    Now I don't know if you ever had a car stolen before
    But it's a real crazy feeling when you walk out the door
    And you don't need a map or any kinda chart
    To know you're standin in the spot your car used to be parked
    Now you know you parked your car there but yet you keep lookin
    Cause your mind didn't accept yet that somebody took it
    So you're scratching your head and tryin to get things clear
    And it's always some idiot saying (you're sure you parked here)
    To call the police would be the move that is smart
    But instead you keep lookin where you know you didn't park
    Searchin for reasons like maybe tickets you owed
    Something to justify that - maybe it got towed
    But not stolen n-never forget it
    But then you ask yourself well where the hell is it
    If there was a prize you'd win dummy of the year
    Cause you're lookin somewhere else when you know you parked it here
    So through never-neverland you find yourself strollin
    Then when you finally accept that it's stolen
    You call the police and they come and say
    (That's the 437th car stolen today)
    As if that's somethin that he really needed to mention
    Then they start askin you real dumb questions
    Like (well when's the last time that you saw it)
    You idiot, right before they stole it
    Now you're mad this cop is talkin to you
    And somebody in your car headed to kalamazoo
    Officer Fool or whoever you are
    Would you please get off your b___ and find who stole my car?

    I remember my first car, never forget it
    A candy apple red I ROC, windows deep tinted
    Talk about fast like a rocket to drive
    Went from zero to 60 in like 5.5
    Imagine red rims but that wasn't enough
    It had a car phone for when I wanted to reach out and touch
    An alpine stereo the straight up rock
    With 12" woofers you could hear for blocks
    The first day I got it I was frontin real hard
    I could hear people sayin (d___, look at that car)
    I was hyped and I wanted my friends to check it out
    So I went to the spot where they're usually hangin out
    Just my luck nobody's standin outside
    And I didn't really feel like parkin my ride
    So I honked my horn and nobody was comin
    I thougth what the heck, I went inside and left it runnin
    I was inside for 20 seconds that's all
    I found my friends, I said, "You gotta check this out, y'all"
    But when we came back out the car wasn't there
    (Man you ain't buy nothin) I did, I swear!
    My friends went inside, I was mad they didn't believe me
    Now i'm standin outside the spot my car used to be
    It's hard to figure out what to do all alone
    But then I got it: call the car phone

    (Fresh Prince's car?)
    Yo thief, bring my car back now
    Before I bust your (hold up wait a minute pal)
    (Seems like you forgot who's got the keys)
    I thought: he's right, "Well, bring it back, please"
    Hello Mr. Thief, don't hang up
    Aw then luckily Jeff pulled up
    I told him what had happened someone stole my car
    I said, "Come on Jeff, let's get him, he can't be far"
    We rode around for about 20 minutes
    And we were just about to say forget it
    When I spotted him, I said, "Jeff, go get it!"
    We pulled up behind him and man dude jetted
    He was drivin all wild and fast
    Like he was gettin points for the stuff that he crashed
    I called him on the car phone again and I said
    Of course you realize when I catch you you're dead
    All through Philly was a high speed chase and
    Dude was playin around like he thought we was racin
    100 miles an hour and he lost control
    And slammed my car into a telephone pole
    I ran to the car said man you're okay
    He said yeah so I punched him in the face
    The cops came up as if it was my fault
    They saw me punch dude and charged me with a__ault
    If his neck was closer I probably woulda grabbed it
    He told the cops that I said he could have it
    I calmed down and they got things straight
    I saw half my car at 7th street the other half at 8th
    I wanted to just jump in the ocean
    My car looked like it was a Lego explosion
    Why does life have to be so hard?
    Don't laugh, next time it could be your car
