Babies Lyrics

    [intro/chorus: madame d]
    Light is shinin.. beauty sunshine
    Here comes one-time.. the ball was so fine
    Heat is blazin.. the kids were playin
    His partner was shady.. tryin to slave the babies

    [ghostface killah]
    Aiyyo they didn't know the cop was crooked, he had blow out in brooklyn
    All this while he let the fiends cook it
    The baseheads stirred it up, plus they got to blow it up
    Dropped it off in the pj's and they bigged it up
    Then one day, shit jumped off real crazy
    The middle of a bathroom they find an old lady
    No clothes, half of her tongue, ear missin
    The killer had to be mad smart, he wore mittens
    Even though her leg was bitten
    Crackheads point the finger at detective slick morris gittins
    Paleface cop who done popped the desk
    And got the chop on his neck from when he knocked celeste
    It was a slug, drug, he pressured everybody on the block
    Some niggaz know him as the godson of gotti
    And his black partner, he was scared to speak
    He saw how they planted weapons on these kids in the street
    He saw like over fifty bodies in like fifty-two weeks
    He saw his colleague pick up money before leavin his beat
    They call him desk duty, robocop
    Younger dudes call him freddy krugs from the way he walk on the block


    [raekwon the chef]
    Heard the disturbance out the window, oh shit they got my son
    Pulled over his tempo, brenda dropped the endo
    Had her little nephew with her yo she didn't care
    They always harassed her, until she blew the captain with a razor
    His partner turned red in his waist, mase done smacked her
    With the walkie, yoked her then slammed her on her face
    He bugged on her like she was drugged, plugged one in her
    The fifth relaxed her like a big thug pistol whipped her
    Heard she was dusted, musta been the way they threw the cuffs on her
    She broke the shits, went and rushed the kid
    Wavin her hands, she had a half an axe, all in her tracks
    He grabbed her by the air, she broke his jaw it cracked
    More cops arrived, they both bloodied down by the five
    Wildest niggaz just smilin cause it look live
    They gave her forty years in new orleans, callin me (?)
    Shorty was young, by three days had a great bid


    You're just worms in the worst part of the apple that's rotten
    You squirm and you turn from the right, still plottin
    All slimy cause you stay grimy, petty crimey cat
    You sometime me, don't need to remind me about
    Livin in the core, with the scramblers in front of the store
    The bum holdin the door, the mugging no one saw
    We played ball in the alley where dope was shot raw
    And the school they kept flawed, plus the lowest test scores
    Small percentage determined to strengthen they position
    Transformation from critical to, stable condition
    But it still be obstacles on niggaz that's optical
    Watchin you like salt-water sharks that's tropical
    The money was the root and it's the instinct to make it
    With they pockets and fridge naked, many aim to take it
    Whether - hold up, set up, stabbin or a wet up
    Just to know it was the kid next door fizzucked your head up
    Once he fell short, frequently visit the courts
    And for some, another way out, is music and sports
    That's why i, keep the rhyme just as fly as a shot
    That won the championship, with just oh on the clock

    [chorus - repeat 2x]
