Here we go 
Yo a day in the life of a player named Quik 
I'm just a stubborn kind of fellow with a head like a brick 
And just because I drink the 8  they say that I'm hopeless 
But I don't give a f*ck  so blame it on the loc est 
Now this is how we do it when we checkin' a grip 
Teddy Bear's in the house  so don't even trip 
We're bustin' funky compositions as smooth as a prism 
So check it while I kick it to this funky ass rhythm 
It's Friday morning, the phone is ringin' off the hook brrrrrring 
And AMG is puttin' down girl rhymes in his notebook 
Or should I say dope sack, because we don't bust wack brrrrrring 
I pick up the phone and it's the D (whassup nigga?) 
He said he's comin' down at about two on the dot 
So I'm about to rush the tub while my water's still hot 
And now I'm soakin', a brother like the devestatin' DJ Quik ain't jokin' 
F*ck with me on DSP and you'll get broken 
My name is Quik, but you can call me Daddy 
Yo open up the door, they think I'm Freak Man in a Caddy 
Now Freaky's in an El doggin shabbies in at Alco 
And everybody's sippin' on a quart (here we go) 
D just came with a forty and a quart 
In addition to the three that Greedy just brought 
But I don't want to start early, so I just might 
put my forty in the freezer 'cause I want to get bent tonight 
Tonight's the night (yeah) tonight 
Tonight is the night tonight 
Tonight's the night (yo when we gon get bent) tonight 
Tonight is the night (aww yeah) 
And now I'm out of the tub up in a fancy freak 
Spray on some serious and put on my Girbaud jeans 
Sweatsuit, the gray one with the burgundy trim 
And it's a medium, fit me proper cause I'm nice and slim 
Five thirty on the clock and the sun is steadily sinkin' 
And I am steadily thinkin' about the 8 that I'll be drinkin' 
You know I ain't ashamed and you know I ain't bashful 
So go on and pop the forty so I can pour me a glassful 
Ham is in the bedroom rollin' up a stencil 
Fatter than a pinky and the length of a pencil 
Freakie lit it up and hit it one two three 
Shabby took a hit and then they pass it to me 
It's the bomb! 
Yo I can feel my senses Get numb!
Yo f*ck the forty ounce I need some rum!
I'm chillin' like a villain Here I come!
And that's how I'm livin'
Tonight is the night and I'm lookin' real sporty 
Proper Friday evening and I'm ready to party 
Crusher came in with a handful of snaps 
F*ck it, let's shoot some craps 
(Yo what they in fo') A fin or a half 
(Yo shoot that ten nigga) Don't make me laugh 
Hi-see want a dove and he think that shit is funny 
But I'm seven and eleven and I'm takin' niggaz money tonight 
Tonight's the night (yeah watch me f*ck the hoe) tonight 
Tonight is the night (passin' naturals on motherfuckers) tonight 
Tonight's the night (yo, I'm unfadable) tonight 
Tonight is the night (ahh let's break it down, so I can get funky) 
Ah yeah 
Givin' em somethin' they can roll on, hold on 
Wake up Saturday morning and I got a headache 
I can't believe that I'm sick from all the shit that I drank 
last night Soon as I felt it comin' on 
I should quit, it's true that a drunk ain't shit 
To the man up above, the whole thanks I give 
I'll never drink again if you just let me live 
Mike P spoke to me and I said I couldn't call it 
Call it Earl like a mother while I'm grippin' the toilet 
I need a 7-Up, because my head is spinnin' 
Round and round I think I better sit down 
My homey Shot is alright, but I'm feeling faint 
I guess he's used to it, but a nigga like Quik ain't 
K is on the phone, and Teddy's at the door 
Some fine ass bitches comin' over at four 
(I thought you ain't drinkin' no more) Yeah right 
Because as soon as they come, we doin the same ol shit tonight 
Tonight's the night (yeah) tonight
Tonight is the night (straight gettin' fucked up, hey) tonight 
Tonight's the night (f*ck that pass me that pina colada) tonight 
(Man I don't want to fade that 8 Ball no mo) 
Tonight is the night (that shit be fuckin' a nigga up) tonight 
Tonight's the night (ahh yeah nothin' but a party and I'm kickin' it) 
(What's up Pete and Greg) tonight 
Tonight is the night (how you livin?) tonight 
Tonight's the night (hey somebody get that nigga a Genuine Draft) 
(Yeah) tonight 
Tonight is the night (and on that motherfuckin' note, I'm outta here) 
(See-ya) tonight 
We out (what about peace?) F*ck peace nigga, give me another brew
