3. The Ropes
[Slug] Hey man, you remember Stephanie's little cousin? Yeah, a little feminine motherfucker Used to be scared of the football, yeah man Nah, nah I saw him the other night down town Wilding out man, it was crazy Running around headpin Waving a gun at frat boys and shit Ay dog, I heard you got those trees Wait dog, you can't possibly pee Even thirteen, what you doing open this late? You ain't got no older brothers to hold you in place Yeah I know, you gotta get your hustle on and life does go on and fronts like nothing's wrong State law says you're too young to work But a couple of bucks will put a gun up under your shirt Coke, weed, junk and speed Teach me another type of hide and seek Chemistry, economics, math and business Already a pimp before high school's finished Even the rich kids get in the mix Only difference is them bitches did it for kicks And we quick to say it's just a game that's dealt that gave you that rope so you can hang yourself It goes... [Chorus 2X] So big kid, where did you go? We made you grow up quick, showed you the ropes Do it up so... [Slug] The movies and the music taught me how to do it And how to build a crew, and how to get it moving Supply and demand came and held my hand Should've seen me back then, didn't even have a plan Only had a pistol cause they had a pistol Cocked that hammer and blowed them missiles I only had a handful of minutes So if we gon' talk then we only talk business Now tell me what you want from me I got a few females, you need some company Because y'all don't be where those junkies be But hold up now, you gon' pull your guns on me? Nah man, I'm a big kid with big dreams You gon' treat me like you know that I'm only sixteen Huh, well fuck it right? Shut my eyesight Only squeezed out a couple and I only got double life [Chorus: 2X] [Slug] Hey there girly, you got your worm early Jumped off the branch, fly little birdy Look around, but don't look down cause you see no need to touch foot to the ground Sex, drugs, rock and rolled up Them older boys got you thinking that you growed up Spent the whole day getting high Putting work on them little thighs And I ain't tryna criticise You gotta live your life, you gotta get your stripes Take aim and kiss the sky Don't be another one wishing that you did it right Nah do your best, it's all we can expect Try to see the game while it deals the death Got to keep keeping on, move it along cause there's a whole lot left when today's all gone, now [Chorus: 2X]
