CoolioSee You When You Get There

Now I've seen places and faces And things you ain't never thought about thinkin' If you ain't peeped then you must be drinkin' and smokin' Pretending not to loc'in but you're broken Let me get you open Now little Timmy got his diploma and Little Jimmy got life And Tamika round the corner just took her first hit off the pipe The other homie shot the other homie and ran off with his 20 And when the other homies heard about it they thought that it was funny But who's the dummy 'cause you just lost a hustler A down ass brother been replaced by a buster And though I got love for you, I know I can't trust you 'Cause my crew is rollin' Hummers and your crew is rollin' dusters And just because of that You act like you don't like a brother no more I guess that's just the way it go I ain't tryin' to preach, I believe I can reach but your mind ain't prepared I'll 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 I'll see you when you get there If you ever get there See you when you get there More temptation than faith, I guess we livin' for the day I seen a man get swept off his feet by a boy with an AK The situation so twisted everybody gettin' lifted I'm just tryin' to take care of my kids and handle my business 'Cause it's way too serious so you gotta pay close attention So you don't get caught slippin' when they come and do all the gettin' Life is a big game so you gotta play it with a big heart Some of us gotta run a little faster 'cause we gotta later start But I'd be a fool to surrender when I know I can be a contender And if everybody's a sinner then everybody could ba a winner No matter you rag color deep down we all brothers And regardless of the time somebody up there still love us I'm gonna scuffle and struggle until I'm breathless and weak I just strived my whole life to make it to the mountain peak Always keep reachin' be sure to grab hold of something I'll be there when you get there when you wit the sounds bumpin' 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 You need to loosen up and live a little And if you 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 tryin' to stack And keep up with the Jones' taking advantage of your own The realest homies that you've been knowin' for the longest But some ain't missing a good thing until it's gone Could have built an empire if not for the jealousy that divides us We prefer to keep our eyes shut to describe when It's something wrong and we desire So hold your head up high if your poor and righteous I know time seems strife And the problems seem endless But at times of despair we gotta pull ourselves together And if you fell, you're out the game then you need to get back in it 'Cause nothing worse than a quitter You gotta face responsibility one day, my brother So gather up your pitty and turn it to ambition And put your vehicle in drive and stop by my side 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 As we walk down the road of our destiny And the time comes to choose which it gonna be The wide and crooked or the straight and narrow We got one voice 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 be I guess, I'll see you when you see me 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 ...
