Song Lyrics

Intro: Raekwon the Chef

[Can it be that it was all so simple then]

KnowhatI`msayin, take you on this lyrical high real quick

Nineteen ninety three exoticness

KnowhatI`msayin, let`s get technical

Where`s your bone at, get up on that sh*t aight


Verse One:

Started off on the island, AK Shaolin

n*ggaz whylin, gun shots thrown the phone dialin

Back in the days of eight now, makin a tape now

Rae gotta get a plate now

Ignorant and mad young, wanted to be the one

Till I got (BAM! BAM!) thrown one

Yeah, my pops was a fiend since sixteen

Shootin` that (that`s that sh*t!) in his blood stream

That`s the life of a crimey, real live crimey

If n*ggas know the half is behind me

Day one, yo, growin all up in the ghetto

Now I`m a weed fiend, jettin the Palmetto

In Medina, yo no doubt the God got crazy clout

Pushin the big joint from down South

So if you`re filthy stacked up

Betta watch ya back and duck

Cause these fiends they got it cracked up

Now my man from up north, now he got the law

It`s solid as a rock and crazy salt

No jokes, I`m not playin, get his folks

Desert Eagle his dick and put `em in a yolk (AAH!)

And to know for sure, I got reck and rip shop

I pointed a gat at his mother`s knot

(Yo, Rae, don`t do that sh*t, man! Don`t do that sh*t! <gun shots>)

f**k that


<Raekwon> Dedicated to the winners and the losers

(Can it be that it was all so simple then?)

<Ghost Face Killer> Dedicated to all jeeps and land cruisers

(Can it be that it was all so simple then?)

<Raekwon> Dedicated to the Y`s, 850-I`s

(Can it be that it was all so simple then?)

<Ghost Face Killer> Dedicated to n*ggas who do drive-bys

(Can it be that it was all so simple then?)

<Raekwon> Dedicated to the Lexus and the Ax

(Can it be that it was all so simple then?)

<Ghost Face Killer> Dedicated to MPV`s phat!

(Can it be that it was all so simple then?)

<Raekwon> Nigguh, yeah, yeah!

Verse Two: Ghostface Killer


Kickin the fly cliches

Doin duets with Rae and A, happens to make my day

Though I`m tired of bustin off shots havin to rock knots

Runnin up in spots and makin sh*t hot

I`d rather flip shows instead of those

Hangin on my living room wall

My first joint, and it went gold

I want to lamp, I want to be in the shade

Plus the spot light

Gettin my dick rubbed all night

I wanna have me a phat yacht

And enough land to go and plant my own sess crops

But for now, it just a big dream

Cause I find myself in the place where I`m last seen

My thoughts must be relaxed

Be able to maintain

Cause times is changed and life is strange

The glorious days is gone, and everybody`s doin` bad

Yo, mad lives is up for grabs

Brothers, passin away, I gotta make wakes

Receivin all types of calls from upstate

Yo, I can`t cope with the pressure

Settlin for lesser

The god left lessons on my dresser

So I can bloom and blossom, find a new way

Continue to make hits with Rae and A

Sunshine plays a major part in the daytime

[Peace to mankind Ghostface carry a black nine, n*gga

Word up

It`s on like that]

[Can it be that it was all so simple then]
