Arrested Development – People Everyday – 1992


    See I was resting at the park minding my own
    Business as I kick up the treble tone
    On my radio tape player box, right
    Just loud enough so folks could hear it’s hype, see?
    Outta nowhere comes the woman I’m dating
    Investigation maybe she was demonstrating
    But nevertheless I was pleased
    My day was going great and my soul was at ease
    Until a group of brothers started bugging out
    Drinking the 40 oz, going the nigga route
    Disrespecting my black queen
    Holding their crotches and being obscene

    At first I ignored them cause see I know their type
    They got drunk and got guns and they wanna fight
    And they see a young couple having a time that’s good
    And their egos wanna test a brother’s manhood
    So they came to test Speech cause of my hair-do
    And the loud bright colors that I wear
    I was a target cause I’m a fashion misfit
    And the outfit that I’m wearing brothers dissing it
    Well I stay calm and pray the niggas leave me be
    But they’re squeezing parts of my date’s anatomy
    Why, Lord, do brothers have to drill me?
    Cause if I start to hit this man he’ll have to kill me

    I am everyday peopleI told the niggas please let us pass, friend
    I said please cause I don’t like killing Africans
    But he wouldn’t stop and I ain’t Ice Cube
    But I had to take the brother out for being rude
    And like I said before I was mad by then
    It took three or four cops to pull me off of him
    But that’s the story y’all of a black man
    Acting like a nigga and get stomped by an African

    I am everyday people
