O'Shea! O'Shea! 
Get your ass in here boy 
You hear me calling you? 

When I was young I used to hang with the seventh graders 
Little bad motherfucker playing Space Invaders 
Fucking with the girls in the fourth grade 
Either feeling on they butts or pulling on they braids 
Walking with the schoolhouse bully 
By doing that I had a lot of pull G 
Cheating on tests making a mess 
Cussing like a sailor at recess 
It must a been a half moon 
Cause you'll catch me running out the little girls' bathroom 
Chewing on Good and Plenties 
Got my gamble on at lunch pitching pennies 
Yo I was living like the class clown 
Pulling all the hokes, making all the jokes man 
When you young it's hard to see 
That it's wrong throwing rocks at the RTD 
Popping out your window with a BB gun 
Better yet knocking on your door and run 
Playing hide-and-go-get-it for a little stank 
Even though I was still shooting blanks 
As soon as the dark hit 
I was stealing candy out the corner market 
Until I got my ass whipped 
Cause I was ten years old, doing dumb shit 

Thirteen, that's how old I was 
When my jimmy started getting a little peach fuzz 
And I was looking at any butt and ass 
Me and my homies started cutting class 
Going up to the high school 
Looking for any bitch I could lie to 
Tell em I was older than I really was 
Smoked my first joint and got really buzzed 
That's what a mack's made of 
But when I got my first piece of pussy I fell in love 
Hard as a rock the long way 
And then I put the rubber on the wrong way 
But I still gotta have it 
Overexcited and fucking like a jackrabbit 
Goddamn I was hot 
A virgin but I still knew how to lay pipe 
Even though the hoe worked me 
I still knocked the boots from here to Albuquerque 
Then the shit got strange money 
I started shaking and jimmy felt funny 
Then the nut came gushing 
I jumped up got dressed and start pushing 
Cause I thought the bitch broke my dick 
Cause I was still young doing dumb shit 

At 17 got my first Volkswagon 
And mastered the life-long art of dragging 
To the women in college 
Hung out with the OG's and got some street knowledge 
Breaking in cars and all that 
Hitting punk fools with a baseball bat 
Fucking at a real fast rate 
Til they said that I might not graduate 
Then I said fuck the dumb shit 
Cause Pops'll fuck me up quick 
If things continued 
So I start rapping about shit I been through 
And I got real good 
Now I look at all the kids in the neighborhood 
Trying to be baby macks 
Doing shit that I did seven years back 
Going through a stage 
But before they can grow up they on the front page 
And they mommas is having a fit 
Cause they died young doing dumb shit
