nelly


Gun shots reigned out over the city
And had everybody duckin' and runnin checkin' for any inda
Shelter 'cause them peoples man they at it again
If you aint heard or seen it then you better pretend
Aint got no time for stoppin' ain't no catchin' your wind
Ya baby mammas on the porch tellin' her daughters come in
Got fathers grabbin' sons "where the hell have you been?"
Boy and y'all just startin young I'm talkin 13 and 10
They started tranin' in the streets some type of ghetto battles
But they ain't hoopin in the gym they hoopin crates in the alleys
Where else can you shoot a jump shot
Slang a rock all from the same spot?
Got one gang on this half
The other gang on the other half of the same block
Gunplay on Monday
Sundays a fun day
Will it stop one day?
I can't call it no way
When your gettin' started everybody wanna help and get you off
But turn around first motherfuckers wanna see you fall

Say now (say now)
Can you hoes come out to play now? (Play now)
Say now (say now)
Can you hoes come out to play now? (Play now)
Say now (na na na na)
Can you hoes come out to play now? (Na na na na na na na na)
Say now (na na na na)
Can you hoes come out
Na wait a minute na
Wait a minute na
Wait a minute na, oh

Feel like I'm runnin towards the daylight
Tryin ta get my mind right
And just before I grab it somebody reach out and snatch it from me
Say now
Can you hoes come out to play now?

Feel like I'm runnin towards the daylight
Tryin' ta get my mind right
And just before I grab it somebody reach out and snatch it from me
Say now
Can you hoes come out to play now?
Play now, yeah

Oh hear me out

Uh uh (check it)
Uh uh uh (you check it)
Uh uh

Trynna put my
City on the map and they mad at me
The same city some of them live in and they mad at me
When I come down to speak dirty why you mad at me?
Is it 'cause the old school freaked out niggas from A to Z?
Ain't CDs, Tvs, our aim's to please
They mean the same to me like Biggie to C's
Like Easy to E's, Tupac to overseas
And I done see more Aaliyah fans fall cry to their knees
I tell ya, I aint been livin' this life for too long
And I can't count how many times someone has asked me what's wrong
Why my mother was gone
Why my daddy wasn't home
And the same shit they told me I found myself tellin my own
Now it's good-bye bad nights
Hello good times
There ain't no way I'll let no nigga step in my shine
Keep tryin' (you keep tryin')
There's bound ta be somethin' G
As long as I'm AN S-T-L-U-N-A-T-I-C
I'll tell ya

Say now (say now)
Can you hoes come out to play now? (Play now)
Say now (say now)
Can you hoes come out to play now? (Play now)
Say now (na na na na)
Can you hoes come out to play now? (Na na na na na na na na)
Say now (na na na na)
Can you hoes come out
Na wait a minute na wait a minute na wait a minute na

Feel like I'm runnin towards the daylight
Tryna get my mind right
And just before I grab it somebody reach out and snatch it from me
Say now
Can you hoes come out to play now?

Feel like I'm runnin towards the daylight
Tryna get my mind right
And just before I grab it somebody reach out and snatch it from me
Say now
Can you hoes come out to play now?
Play now yeah

Uh uh uh uh uh
Uh uh uh uh uh
Oh, hear me out now

Uh uh, uh uh uh
Uh uh
