ALONGWAYTOGO
by Gang Starr



[Guru]
It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)
It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)

[Guru]
What you need is more direction and get yourself some protection
I thought by now that you have learned your lesson
I`m stressin points and slammin all joints you call the real shit
Correct shit, you know the busta way you feel shit
Baby, I still don`t think you understand
You lose the game, we get more props than Dan...Rather
And it don`t matter 'cause when you flinch, you`re weak
So I`mma step just to speak about the counterfeit, unlegit type of people
Those cellophane ones, the ones that you can see through
It`s poetic justice 'cause I`m mad with a pact
So precise, my insight will take flight in the night
And in the daytime, 'cause I don`t come up with corny rhymes
I`m too devoted to the concept of gettin mine
So here`s the deal like Shaquille O`Neal
If you don`t know what you`re doing, how the hell can you be real?

It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)
It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)

[Guru]
Now in `93, realistically you should be...well aware of all the evils out there
It`s like a jungle sometimes. You get the message?
You got to rumble sometimes, it`s gettin hectic
Emotions run deep, as times run out
Solutions...it`s time to find some out
So according to me, suckers are barred
From obstructing my discussion 'cause I rhyme too hard
You take a wiff like a spliff here, like some fresh air
I came to claim shit this year (this year)
So take a stroll down the walkway, or hallway, or runway
Fuck with us, kid, you`ll pay
I slay...and yo, I`m still on the expressway
I kick my essay, then you know we don`t play
So pray down on your knees, G
'Cause it`s the best way, yes, the best way, cuz...

It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)
It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)

[Guru]
There`s a large amount of wack crews. For them, I got bad news
Time to pay your dues, you fools
I`m like express mail, with the script that hits
Like the third rail, when I shock the spot, it`s hot
>From the rays of the sun
Original one the prophet sent to become
A law giver, 'cause you shiver when I quiz ya
All about the real neccessities of life
All about the game and all about the name
G to the A to the N to the G Starr
We know who we are, but do you know who you are?

It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)
It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)
It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)
It`s ALONGWAYTOGO, when you don`t know where you`re going
You don`t know where you`re going when you`re lost (lost)
