City High The Only One I Trust

This is a ghetto fairytale

It was two weeks before my son’s birthday

D.T’s ringing my bell (Ma’am we need to ask a few questions)

They told me the Raid would go down anyday

If I was smart I wouldn’t tell (no no)

It was all over him

My boyfriend the criminal

He was caught up in the game

And the FBI warned if I didn’t go along

They’d make sure I never saw my son or my boyfriend again

(Remember this you are a convicted felon on probation)

But how could I just turn him in?

(Ma’am if you don’t help us, you’ll never see your son again. Trust me)

He would always tell me

I know your afraid

But you can’t leave me now

Lean on my shoulder

Soon it’ll be over

I’m trying to build our future

I’m doing this for us

Your the only one I love

The only one I trust

I’d been with him for about 4 years and I swear

He gave me anything I could dream (anything)

But the life that he lived was a nightmare I swear

Wasn’t clean he was blinded by the green

All the murderous capers, the trips to Las Vegas

Making millions from papers blood stained (nasty money)

Stuck in my head like a song, I saw every sin I knew every wrong

And if I don’t go along, I’d never see my family again

(no no no)

(hmmm)

(hey hey hey)

(So whats it gonna be?)

(I know my rights)

(One phone call from me and your son’s going to a foster home.

Answer the question)

(I don’t have to answer shit)

He would always tell me (tell me yeah)

I know your afraid

But you can’t leave me now

Lean on my shoulder

Soon it’ll be over (soon it’ll be over)

I’m trying to build our future

I’m doing this for us

Your the only one I love

The only one I trust

It was Saturday evening, we were home watching TV

He looked in my eyes I wanted to cry (oh)

My son ran to hug him, he kissed him goodnight

How could I do this, could I do this? When I knew he would die

FED’s rushed the door, yelled ‘everyone on the floor’

My man pulled his knife and started to fight

He was a soldier of cause in a war he couldn’t win

But without him I’m lost

So I stood by his side and went down with him

Oh

No no no no

No no no nooo

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh

Oooooh

He would always tell me

I know your afraid

But you can’t leave me now

Lean on my shoulder

Soon it’ll be over

I’m trying to build our future

I’m doing this for us

Your the only one I love

The only one I trust

I know your afraid

But you can’t leave me now

Lean on my shoulder

Soon it’ll be over

I’m trying to build our future

I’m doing this for us

Your the only one I love

The only one I trust

I’m sorry…

I’m so sorry…

City High City High Anthem

They just gave up on our entire generation

So we were all pushed to the side cuz we didn’t see the world through our teachers eyes

When all we needed was a little bit of motivation

But because we wore our pants saggin’ y’all labelled us gangstas

And said we wasn’t worth the time

There are so many things I never asked you

There are so many things I still don’t know

There are so many things you never told me

And still so many things that I will never know

and why, cuz I went to City High

A school with more drop outs than sign-ups at registration

And the pregnancy rate is at an all-time high, we all know why

Now you would think the classroom’s the place for mental stimulation

But it’s some brothers outside sellin’ that stuff, that’ll really stimulate your mind, (talk about gettin’ high)

There are so many things you never showed me,

There are too many things you let slip by,

How can I face a world that doesn’t know me

A world that doesn’t care whether I live or die,

And why, cuz I go to City High

So, We don’t need your education

We don’t want no pacifier

We are the leaders of your nation

We’re gonna make sure the world survives

There ain’t no justice there’s just us

What happened to the meaning of “in God we trust”

So as we get older and our children grow up

We ain’t gonna teach them what y’all showed us

There’s too many babies dyin’ before they’re born (Lord ain’t that the truth)

Too many young ladies cryin’ with a daddy in the house but not a father in the home (now y’all know there’s a difference)

And what about all our young soldiers being led astray (by this negative music)

What happened to the Isaac Hayes, and the Curtis Mayfield’s and all the Marvin Gayes?

Man we really need ’em today

And there were so many things that needed explaining

But you said it was too late for me to learn

You were suppose to be my shelter when it was rainin’

But instead you left me out here all alone, so I gotta make it on my own

We don’t need your education

We don’t want no pacifier

We are the leaders of your nation

We’re gonna make sure the world survives

There ain’t no justice there’s just us

What happened to the meaning of “in God we trust”

So as we get older and our children grow up

We ain’t gonna teach them what y’all showed us

For people who did believe, what we could do to change our future, you knew the world was in our hands, help build them strong so they can withstand, all the pressures, all the war, all the prejudice, and the others who were sure we couldn’t fight the stress in life, for those of you who didn’t believe us, listen to my words for you, listen to your children sing to you

We don’t need your education

We don’t want no pacifier

We are the leaders of your nation

We’re gonna make sure the world survives

There ain’t no justice there’s just us

What happened to the meaning of “in God we trust”

So as we get older and our children grow up

We ain’t gonna teach them what y’all showed us

You see I’m not the bitch, baby payback is

And what you did came back to you, oh

[Repeat 1 till end]

City High Cats And Dogs

City High

’99

If you my dawg let me hear you bark

be out the door

i don’t catch feelings cuz my heart is cold

see I’m that brother that your mother tried to warn you bout

but you just had to try it

now you crying on yo mamas couch

you put your heart in the fire

baby it burned up

so heres a little story bout a lesson you should learn from

It aint my fault that I’m a dog

I’ve been in love before

But me I picked the apple that was rotting to the core

I put the world at her feet she kicked it in the dirt

Now I won’t fall in love cuz i end up gettin hurt

It aint my fault that I’m a dog

I’ve been in love before

But the trust i had in women as been thouroughly destroyed

I put the world at her feeet she kicked it in the dirt

Now I won’t fall in love

cause i end up getting hurt

Well first of all it aint my fault that the chick broke your heart

if you was hurt you should have told me from the start

instead of sending me the flowers all that candy and the gucci shit

on the phone for hours gasing me like I’m some goopy bitch

I’ve been hurt to

but that dont mean I’d hurt you

never did i burn you

or run you like some do

now look what we’ve come to it’s young and it’s stupid

how you blaming all of us for one chick that was crooked

It aint my fault that your a dog

I’ve been in love before

But you you put the apple that was rotting to the core

i put the world at your feet

you kicked it in the dirt

now I won’t show no love cause i’ll end up getting hurt

it aint my fault that your a dog

I’ve been in love before

But the trust I have in men has been thouroughly destroyes

I put the world at your feet you kicked it in the dirt

now i won’t show no love cuz I’ll end up getting hurt

I thought you was a angel God sent to me

must have be, but the memory of our love burned like a rub burned

but a thug learned never put your heart in a flame

be a part of the game

play smart in the game

but I was young back then

dumb back then

but nowadays how I plays not the same

controlling these games I know it cant do the pain

so dont come cry to me

lie to me

these days women

just leave you bustin pennyless stuck with no benifits

fucking for benjamins suckers like guinea pigs thinking

they innocent

if I let them in again I may never win again

like the Bulls with no Jordon

apifiniit so when no love strong enough for me to be steppin in

where the booga basement love dont win for no more baby face it

It aint my fault that I’m a dog

I’ve been in love before

But me I picked the apple that was rotting to the core

I put the world at her feet she kicked it in the dirt

Now I won’t fall in love cuz I end up gettin hurt

It aint my fault that I’m a dog

I’ve been in love before

But the trust I had in women as been thouroughly destroyed

I put the world at her feeet she kicked it in the dirt

Now I won’t fall in love

cause I end up getting hurt

It aint my fault that your a dog

I’ve been in love before

But you you put the apple that was rotting to the core

I put the world at your feet

you kicked it in the dirt

now I wont show no love cause I’ll end up getting hurt

it aint my fault that your a dog

I’ve been in love before

But the trust I have in men has been thouroughly destroyes

I put the world at your feet you kicked it in the dirt

now I won’t show no love cuz I’ll end up getting hurt

City High Song For You

How many people out there like Donny Ha thaway?

Let me see your hands up

Know what I’m sayin’

City High’s about to reminisce

Drop the beat y’all

I been so many places in my life and time

I’ve sung a lot of songs

I made some bad rhymes

Acted out my life in stages

10,000 people watching

we’re alone now

and I’m singin’ this song to you

I know your image of me

Is what I hope to be

I treated you unkindly

Darling can’t you see

There’s no one more important to me

Baby you see through me

We’re alone now

And was singing this song for you

You taught me precious secrets

Of a true love with holding nothing

Came out in front while I was hiding

But now I’m so much better

If my words don’t seem to come together

Listen to the melody

Cause my love was in there hiding yeah

City High to the bridge now

Aaaaaah

I love you in a place

Where there’s no space or time

I love you for my life is over

Remember when we were together

Cause we were alone

And I was singing this song to you

We were alone

City High Why

City High, Booga Bassment

Here come another one, uh

I know things ain’t work out for you and me

But don’t worry ’bout my child

Cause I’m gonna take care of him baby

But I can’t keep coming around breaking you off

Cause it breaks my heart when we make love

And ain’t no love involved

[1] – Why should we screw?

If we can’t get along

What’s the point in gettin’ it on

You know that it’s wrong

When all we do is sweep it under the rug

What’s the point when we touch

If we’re no longer in love

This makes no sense to do what we do

Cause baby I’ve been moved on

And I know you got someone knew

Said we promised each other we wouldn’t make this a sexual thing

Cause it feels good, while we bang

But when it’s over

You know we be fighting again

[Repeat 1]

Why – tell me why it seems to be

The only time you work with me

Is when we’re between the sheets

When I’m working your body

That’s when we get along

But when you put your clothes back on

We’re back to the same old song

We got it all wrong

[Breakdown]

[Repeat 1 till end]

City High Sista

Now you’s my boy and all, but we need to talk

Stop by the store bring ya ball, let’s hit the park,

I wanna rap for a minute, but don’t take it hard,

Cause, I’m hoping afterwards you’ll still be my partner,

It’s hard for me to express how I’m feelin’ and when you hear

This news you might fly through the ceiling.

But I’m willing to let you know the truth and in fact it’s, better that I told you

For you hear the story backwards. It’s ’bout this new girl I’m creeping:

Its my secret, and I can hardly keep it yo peep it.

Its yo sista, and homey I been wit her

I’ve been wit her for a while now

And there’s nothing you can do about it

[Repeat 1 time]

It’s your sista and homey I been

Wit her

I’ve been wit her for a while now

And there’s nothin’ you can do about it

[Repeat 1 time]

It’s yo sista, you know I love her

I’d never hurt her, or ever leave her no no no no

[Repeat 4 times]

Do you remember the day when, I make it to

Hoop practice

I wasn’t really sick and layed up, I made up

The whole story just so I could be wit the girl

She makes my heart skip a beat

Lolly pops call her sweet.
