Song Lyrics

Gangsta whitewalls, TV antennas in the back (the back, the back...)

[Chorus]

I wanna (diamond in the back)

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

And I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

diamond in the, diamond in the, diamond in the...

[Verse 1]

It`s hard growin` up lookin` at drug dealers wit` all this paper

Wonderin` how I can get me some

My family`s strugglin`, I`m buggin`, sittin` on my porch

So confused, chewin` on some bubblegum

I was always taught to use my manners with the misses

But please, stay away from the hoes and snithes

And I was always reached for the sky, I dont know why

Ima little bitty kid wit` a whole buncha gangsta wishes

When I grow up, you just wait, Ima be so straight

And everything`s gonna be so marvelous

No more borrowin` from the neighbors, no more haters

No blowin` Nintendo cartridges

Ima have it made in the shade, Ima be so paid

And my fam, get `em off that payin` them bills

Matta fact Im schemin` my way on up out this hood, I`ll be good

When I ditch these trainin` wheels

[Chorus]

Diamond in the back

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` in the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` in the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

And I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` in the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` in the scene with a gangsta lean)

Diamond in the, diamond in the, diamond in the...

[Verse 2]

I`m sick and tired of ridin` public transportation

Been patient waitin` on my set of wheels

I`m willin` to do what it takes, whatever the stakes

In order to get myself some dolla bills

It`s too many holes in my socks, and I`m ready to box

Anyone tellin` me I need better shoes

And I aint the only one trippin`, or makin a fuss

My older cousin need some cheddar too

He thinkin` `bout comin` up on the lick, to get it quick

It involves that local corner store

I overheard him say he knew who works there

And whatever they do, dont let the owner know

I hope he come back with enough to let me borrow some change

At least for the summer

And if he dont let me borrow nothin, but ask me what I want

Ima tell him I wanna...

[Chorus]

Diamond in the back

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

Could use a (sunroof top)

Sho` wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

I wanna (sunroof top)

Sho` wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

Diamond in the, diamond in the, diamond in the...

[Verse 3]

Why cant I walk with a limp mama? wont be no drama

For goodness sakes, Im just a kid

Had to get my whoopin` in fo`s, I was just a po`

Like there no remorse for what I did

Gotta learn the hard way, when runnin` them streets

How some creep, really just to eat a meal

"I coulda swore it was mine," what I used to tell the po-po

When I loved to rob and steal

Man, I gotta earn for a livin`, aint nobody givin` me nothin`

Find somethin` I love to do

Hmm, what about that pimpin`? It`s good tippin`

Tax free, and I know a lot of people that love to screw

Yeah, it`s just the way of the world, with boys and girls

I`m adjustin` to my environment

This government cheatin` us, so I`ll cheat `em back

Why cant work feel like retirement?

[Chorus]

Diamond in the back

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

Could use a (sunroof top)

Sho` wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wish I had a (diamond in the back)

I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

I wanna (diamond in the back)

And I wanna (sunroof top)

I wanna (diggin` the scene with a gangsta lean)

Gangsta, gangsta, gangsta...
