Why don't you come around, my way(way) my way my way(way) my way(way) [x2]
Why don't you come around?

Uh, uh, uh, why don't you come around (way, way, way) why don't you come around 

 Walking down Williams through Mart and Blays(mart and blays)
Call it Big Steps where I used to play(used to play)
The girls in the park gotta lot to say(lot to say)
Them girls over here threw they life away(life away)
'Cause they got babies and they just now head(just now head)
They double numbers they mamas promoting this here
The boys on the court playing basketball(basketball)
They baby fathers they rather be boys and that's all

 Blays Rd. Stand up! (uh)
Pre K Stand Up! (uh)
East Coast Stand Up! (uh)
You should 
Come around my way [x2]

I'm from a place in Harlem  Where the streets they look like Africa 
And the trees are in better condition than the homes so abandoned 
P S 197
 Where I study my academic stare run
And the books so worn and torn I can't think 
How they tried to cripple me
 Understood the lost side of me
 Thank God I had a good teacher on the side of me
 Showed me the right thangs to do
 Overcame these obstacles  Haters stand up for the things that we've been through ooh

 Blays Rd. Stand up! (uh)
Pre K Stand Up! (uh)
East Coast Stand Up! (uh)
You should 
Come around my way [x2]

Here we got these buildings called projects but they ain't three stories
They fill about ten on the block april flow go up by twenty  Stories I tell be true story kids cut school and watch Maury
Like if they ain't intellect in what's affecting my life I can't respect them
But that's just they way of the ghetto  People who come from where I'm from get it
But we still gotta make a difference  Stand up tall so the world can get it
 Teach kids pride insted of "Outside"
Show another side and they show gon' rise
Stop letting responsibilty fall
I can tell you ain't been aroung my way at all

Why don't you come around(way)
So you can see what my(way)
Eyes been seeing why(way)
Why don't you come around  Where we need directions(way)
 Respect in every lesson(way)
Way, why don't you come around 

My way(way) my way my way(way) my way(way) [x2]

 Blays Rd. Stand up! (uh)
Pre K Stand Up! (uh)
East Coast Stand Up! (uh) [x2]
You should come around my way
You should come around 

Uh, uh, uh
