Coolio – I See You When You Get There

Now I’ve seen places and faces
And things you ain’t never thought about thinking
If you ain’t peek then you must be drinking and smokin’
Pretending not to lockin’ but you’re brokin’
Let me get you open now

Little Timmy got his diploma and, little Jimmy got life
And Tamikra around the corner
Just took her first hit off The pipe
The other homie shot the other homie
And ran off with his money
And when the other homies heard about it
They thought it was funny but who’s the dummy
Now you done lost the hustler
A down-ass brother got replaced by a buster
And though I got love for ya, I know I can’t trust you
Coz my crew is rollin’ numbers and your crew is rollin’ duchess

And just because of that you act you don’t like a brother
No more, uh, I guess that’s just the way it goes
I ain’t tryina preach, I believe I can reach
But your mind ain’t prepared, I see you when you get there

1-I’ll see you when you get there
If you ever get there, see you when you get there
I’ll see you when you get there if you ever get there
See you when you get there

More temptation then faith
I guess we livin’ for today
I seen a man get swept off his feet by a bullet with an AK
the situation so twisted everybody gettin lifted
I’m just tryin to take care of my kids
And handle my business coz it way too serious
So you gotta pay close attention
So you don’t get caught sittin’
When they come and do all the gettin’
Life is a big game so you gotta play it with a big horse
Someone’s gotta run a little faster
Coz we gotta lay the course I’d be a fool to surrender
When I know I can be a contender
if everybody’s a sinner then everybody could be
A winner, no matter you rag color deep down we all brothers
and regardless of the time somebody else still love us
I’m a scuff and strugle y’all breathless and weak
I just strived my whole life to make it to the mountain peak
always keep reaching sure to grab on to something
I’ll be there when you get there when you wit the sound bumpin’

You need to loosen up and live a little
and if they got kids let them know how you feel
and for your own sake give a little
oh, you don’t want to hear that
you busy tryina stack
and keep them from the Jones’s is taking advantage of your own
the realist homies got you but you known them longest
but some ain’t missing a good thing until it’s gone
could have built an empire if not for the jelousy that divides
we prefare to keep our eyes shut to whats right when
it’s something wrong and we desire
so hold your head up high if your poor and righteous
until time seems right
the problems seem endless
in the time of despair we gotta put ourselves together
and if you feel you’re out the game then you need to get back in it
coz nothing worse than a quitter
you gotta face responsibility one day, my brother
so gather up your pity and turn it to ambition
and put your vehicle in drive and stop by my side

As we walk down the road of our destiny
and the times when there was a the
we got one push to give and one life to live
stand up for something or lie down in your game
listen to the song that we sing
it’s up to you to make it big
I guess I’ll see you when you see me.
