Naughty By Nature - Everything's Gonna Be Alright lyrics

rate me


Smooth it out

This is a story about the drifter

Who waited through the worst for the best in crosstown

Who never planned on havin' so dick

Why mehuh?


Everything's gonna be alright (alright)

Everything's gonna be alright (alright)

Everything's gonna be alright now (alright)

Everything's gonna be alright (alright)

[verse 1]

Some get a little and some get none

Some catch a bad one and some leave the job half done

I was one who never had and always mad

Never knew my dadmother fuck the fag

Where anywhere I did pick upflipped the clip up

Too many stick-ups'cause niggas had the trigger hic-ups

I couldn't get a jobnappy hair was not allowed

My mother couldn't afford us allshe had to throw me out

I walked the stripwhich is a clipwho wanna hit?

They got 'em quickI had to eatthis money's good as spent

I threw in gravesI wasn't paid enough

I kept 'em long 'cause I couldn't afford a haircut

I got laughed atI got chumpedI got dissed

I got upsetI got a tec and a banana clip

Was down to throw the led to any tellin' crackhead

I'm still livin' brokeso a lot of good it would've did

Or doneif not for bad luckI would have none

Why did I have to live a life of such a bad one

Why when I was a kid and played out was a sad one

And always wanted to live like just a fat one


[verse 2]

A ghetto bastardborn next to the projects

Livin' in the slums with bumsI sit and watch them

Why do I have to be like this? momma said I'm priceless

So I am all worthlessstarvedand it's just for being a nice kid

Sometimes I wish I could afford a pistol thenthough

Last stop to hellI would've ended things a while ago

I ain't have jack but a black hat and napsack

Four squad stolen in cars in a blackjack

Drop thatand now you want me to rap and give?

Say somethin' positive? well positive ain't where I lived

I lived right around a corner from west hell

Two blocks from south shitit was in a jail cell

The sun never shone on my side of the streetsee

And only once or twice a week I would speak

I walked alonemy state of mind was home sweet home

I couldn't keep a girlthey wanted kids for cause of chrome

Some lifeit you ain't wear gold your style was old

And you got more juice than dope for every bottle sold

Hell noI say there's gotta be a better way

But heynever gamble any game that you can't play

I'm slowin' and flowin' and goin' in on and knowin' not now

How will I do ithow will I make it? I won'tthat's how

Why mehuh?


My third year into adulthoodand still a knucklehead

I'm better off deadhuhthat's what my neighbor said

I don't do jack but fightin'lightin' up the streets at night

Playin' hide and seek with a machetti ? ? ? like freddy swipe

Some say I'm rollin' onnothin' but a dog now

I answer that with a techwho wanna bow-wow?

'cause I done been through more shit within the last week

Than I fly flowin' in doo-doo on the concrete

I been a deadbeatdead to the world and dead wrong

Since I was born that's my lifeoh you don't know this song?

So don't say jackand please don't say you understand

All that man to man talk just hot damn

If you ain't live you couldn't feel itso kill itskillet

And all that talk about it won't help it outnow will it?

And illtown fell like I stuck-up propsgot shot

Don't worryI hit bobflurryand his punk-ass dropped

But I'm the one who has been labeled as an outcast

They changin' schoolsI'm the misfit that will outlast

But that's cool with the bullsmack 'em backwards

That's what you get for fuckin' with a ghetto bastard


If you ain't ever been to the ghetto

Don't ever come to the ghetto

'cause you ain't understand the ghetto

And stay the fuck out of the ghetto

Why me?
