Ghetto Bird

Verse One:

Why, oh why must you swoop through the hood like everybody fromthe hood is up to no good.
You think all the girls around here are trickin up there lookinlike Superchicken
At night I see your light through my bedroom window But I ain'tgot shit but the pad and pencil
I can't wait till I hear you say "I'm going down, mayday,mayday." I'm gonna clown
Cause everytime that the pigs have got me y'all rub it in withthe flying Nazi
military force, but we don't want ya Standin' on my roof with therocket launcher
"So fly like an eagle." But don't follow us wherever we go
The shit that I'm saying, make it's heard Motherfuck you and yourpunk-ass ghetto bird
["Run, run, run, from the ghetto bird" (2x)]

Verse Two:

Now.. My homey's here to lick on a trick for a Rolex
And let me try the four next Now the four I was driving washotter than july
looked up and didn't see it whippin' in the sky Saw a chopperwith numbers on the bottom
"Calling all cars, I think we've got em." I hit the gas and Imashed past Inglewood
I think I drove through every single hood South Central, Comptonand Watts
Long Beach, bust a U, here come the cops Wish I had a genie withabout three wishes
Metal flake green on D's I look suspicious You know that I'mrunning
Shit, I hear it humming Fuck, I see it coming
Is it a bird? Yup Is it a plane? No
I hit me a right on El Segundo Wanted to holla, had to ditch theImpala
Let's see if they would folla Me, hit a fence, hit a fence, andanother
met me a baby pitbull and his mother Ran up in some peoples houseand looked out of the window
I wish it was my ten-four had to pull a strap on a fool namedLouis the Third
cuz I'm getting chased by the ghetto bird

"Just put his hat, ehrrr, he combed his hair and then put his hatback
on. Errr, he's acting nonchalant up there in that cockpit, going115
miles an hour, with the police chasing him. Ehm, they're notgonna be
real happy when they catch up with him, no matter what, theeh...
Ehrr, they hate, they hate a bigmouth even worse."

Verse Three:

Officer Bird's on his way, and I don't wanna see him could youplease give me the keys to the B.M.?
See, I didn't want to gank youbut don't make me bank you, thankyou
Tried to get yo the hood, and you might guess that a fool likeme woulda shot Cyrus
Incognito, Ghetto Eagle Saying, "Fuck, where did he go?"
I bust me a left from Rubellon. Park The 735 and I'm bailin
Went to my homegirl's house and got a hug man, She helped me runlike Harriet Tubman
Looked out the window by the black bed I saw the pigs and thefour on a flatbed
Then the light from the bird hit me in the face I close theblinds cause I didn't wanna catch a case
All that night, I heard the bird circle while I was eating fishand watching Urkel
She said I could sleep on the couch By two A.M. I was digging herout
Fuck the ghetto bird
"Which way is he going now?" "Ok, now..now he's..he's actuallysouthbound..on a service street..
and, uh...Gee whiz, uh, I'm gonna get my maps out here andfigure
out which service srteet he suddelny turned off on. Uh, thesherriffsare..are...well I know that...
Sherriffs ground units got thrown off"
