The Place Where We Dwell
[Verse one:] New York, New york is where we live and we`re thorough Never taking shorts 'cause Brooklyn`s the borough Peace to Uptown, to queens and the Bronx Long Island and Jersey get as fly as they want Where we rest is no joke So let me break it down to sections for you slowpokes Fort Green, Bedsty, Flatbush, Brownsville Crown Heights and East New York will be down till Medina takes respect for the style`s we bring 'cause in Brooklyn, we be into our own thing Alantic terminals, Redhook Bushwick Come to Brooklyn frontin, and you`ll get mushed quick We ain`t just know for flipping and turning out parties But also for the take no bullshit hotties On the subject of blackness, well let me share this Brooklyn is the home for cultural awareness So in all fairness, you can never compare this Some good, some bad. little hope for the weak Dangerous streets and Coney Island Beach All this included when you go for a tour Some can get scandolous and outright raw When you step, step correct and watch where you move We pay dues so we ain`t trying to lose Here in Brooklyn The home of the black and the beautiful For a ruffrap sound, ain`t a place more suitable Other cities claim this, and others claim that But let me give some props to the place where we be at be -are-double O- K-l-why-N I came in for a visit and ever since then I`ve been incorporated with select personnel Right here in Brooklyn, the place where we dwell Way down in Brooklyn (3x) Those who live in Brooklyn know just what I`m talking about [Verse two:] Peace to Boston, Philly, Connecticut, DC All the east coast cities are fly to me Peace to everybody down south and out west But for me, Brooklyn, New York is the best Don`t be afraid to venture over the bridge Although you may run in to some wild ass kids Take the j train, the d or the a if you dare And the 2,3,4,5 also comes here There`s so much to see 'cause Brooklyn`s historic Fools act jealous but you have to ignore it So I just lounge wit the fat clientel Out here in Brooklyn, the place where we dwell Way down in Brooklyn You know the place...
