C U When You Get There

Coolio

Now I've seen places and faces
And things you ain't never thought
About thinking
If you ain't peek then
You must be drinking and smokin'
Pretending that your
Locin' but you're brokin'
Let me get you open
Now little Timmy got his diploma and
Little Jimmy got life
And Tamikra around the corner just
Took her first hit off thepipe
The other homie shot the other
Homie and ran off with his money
And when the other homies heard
About it they thought it wasfunny
But who's the dummy
Now you done lost the hustler
A down-ass brother gonna be replaced by a bustler
And though I got love for ya
I know I can't trust ya
Coz my crew is rollin' homies
And your crew is rollin' dusters
And just because of that you act
You don't like the brother nomore
Uh, I guess that's just the way u go
I ain't tryin ta preach
I believe I can reach
But your mind ain't prepared
I C U when you get there...

(Chorus)
I'll see you when you get there
if you ever get there
see you when you get there
I'll see you when you get there
if you ever get there
see you when you get there...

More temptation and faith
I guess we livin' for the day
I seen a man get swept off his feet
By a bullet and an AK
The situation so twisted
Everybody gettin lifted
I'm just tryin to take care
Of my kids and handle my business
Coz it way too serious so you
Gotta pay close attention
So you don't get caught sittin'
When they come and do all thegettin'
Life is a big game so you gotta
Play it with a big horse
Someone's gotta run a little faster
Coz we gotta lay thestrugle
I'd be a fool to surrender when
I know I can be a contender
And if everybody's a contender
Then everybody could be a winner
No matter you rag colour deep down we all brothers
And regardless of the time
Somebody up there still love us
I'm a scuff and strugle wit
Y'all breathless and weak
I just strived my whole life
To make it to the mountain peak
Always keep reaching sure
To grab on to something
I'll be there when you get
There when you wit the sound pumpin'...

(Chorus)
I'll see you when you get there
see you when you get there
if you ever get there
if you ever get there
see you when you get there
I'll see you when you get there
see you when you get there
if you ever get there
if you ever get there
see you when you get there...

You need to loosen up
And live a little
And if they got kids
Let them know how you feelin'
For your own sake give a little
Oh, you don't want to hear that
You busy tryina stack
And keep them from the Jones's is
Taking advantage of your own
The realist homies that you
Been knowin for the longest
But some ain't missing a
Good thing until it's gone
Could have built an empire
If not for the jelouesy that devises
We prefer to keep our eyes shut to describe when
It's something wrong and we desire
So hold your head up high if your poor and righteous
Aint no time seems right
The problems seem endless
But in times of despair we gotta pull ourselves together
And if you feel you're out
The game then you need to get back init
Coz nothing worse than a quitter
You gotta face responsibility one day, my brother
So gather up your pitty and turn it to ambition
And put your vehicle in drive and stop by my side...

(Chorus)
I'll see you when you get there
see you when you get there
if you ever get there
if you ever get there
see you when you get there
I'll see you when you get there
see you when you get there
if you ever get there
if you ever get there
see you when you get there
(Coolio)
As we walk down the road of our destiny
and the time comes to choose which shall it be
the wide and crooked or the shirt and narrow
we got one push to give and one life to live
stand up for something or lay down in your game
listen to the song that we sing
it's up to you to make it big
I guess I'll see you when you see me...
(Chorus fade out)
