COOLIO - I See You When You Get There lyrics

rate me

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'

(repeat 1, 1)

Verse 3: PS (40 Thevz)

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 obligated 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

(rpt 1, 1)

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

(rpt 1, 1...)
