Da 3rd Shift

Livin on the 3rd shift of life looking for a day job
Da register come up short
Newports aint long enuf
First of da month Rent due
Baby Mama too
Need pampers for tha other two
Gonna do 2yrs fo’ 10 minutes on tha corna’
My fears racin’ my tears
Down is my innastate
takin toll
Temperature bout 95 inda south
Um runnin late
Workin’ 10 ta 6
crawlin thru da night, steppin to the A.M.
Bendin cornas shiftin into 3rd
Vision blurred
gotta fine yella bone caddy ridin’ shotgun
Nine iron shootin’ sideways
Guilty bystanders, Innocent I be
A hole in one,two
…three stripes and shelltoes paint the wind
As I dip thru the ‘partments
Um back on the Ave again…posted up like a sinner
inda center
middle men get cut out Like paper dolls
when dat paper falls
I stand up
Between tha’ chalklines
Hop Scotch and hip hop
Perched on da roof top flippin birds
Two in the bush…like 41 and 43
44 represents me
It’s Bigger Than Hip Hop
Fat laces and big faces
Ten on pump 6…Ten on pump 6
All I hear from 10-6
Workin’ on the 3rd shift
