Coolio – C U When U Get There (feat. 40 Thevz) – 1997

    Paroles

    Now I’ve seen places and faces
    And things you ain’t never thought about thinkin’
    If you ain’t peeped then you must be drinkin’ and smokin’
    Pretending that you’re loc’in but you’re broken, let me get you open

    Now little Timmy got his diploma and little Jimmy got life
    And Tamika ’round the corner just took her first hit off the pipe
    The other homie shot the other homie and ran off with his money
    And when the other homies heard about it they thought that it was funny

    But who’s the dummy, ’cause, now you done lost the hustler
    A down-ass brother done been replaced by a buster
    And though I got love for ya, I know I can’t trust ya
    ‘Cause my crew is rollin’ Hummers and your crew is rollin’ dusters

    And just because of that you act like you don’t like the brother no more
    I guess that’s just the way it goes
    I ain’t tryin’ to preach, I believe I can reach
    But your mind ain’t prepared, I’ll 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
    I’ll see you when you get there
    If you ever get there
    See you when you get there

    More temptation than faith, I guess we livin’ for the day
    I seen a man get swept off his feet, by a boy with an AK
    The situation so twisted everybody gettin’ lifted
    I’m just tryin’ to take care of my kids and handle my business
    ‘Cause it way too serious so you gotta pay close attention

    So you don’t get caught slippin’ when they come and do all the gettin’
    Life is a big game so you gotta play it with a big heart
    Some of us gotta run a little faster ’cause we gotta later start
    I’d be a fool to surrender when I know I can be a contender
    If everybody’s a sinner then everybody can be a winner

    No matter your rag color, deep down we all brothers
    And regardless of the time, somebody up there still love us
    I’ma scuffle and struggle until I’m breathless and weak
    I done 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 waitin’ with the sounds bumpin’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

    You need to loosen up and live a little
    And if you 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 tryna stack
    And keep up with the Joneses, takin’ advantage of your own

    The realest homies that you’ve been knowing for the longest
    But some ain’t missing a good thing until it’s gone
    Could have built an empire if not for the jealousy that divides us
    We prefer to keep our eyes shut ’til it’s right
    When there’s something involved that we desire

    So hold your head up high if your’re poor and righteous
    I know times seem strife, and problems seem endless
    But at the times of despair we gotta pull ourselves together
    And if you feel you’re out of the game then you need to get back in it

    ‘Cause nothing worse than a quitter
    You gotta face responsibility one day, my brother
    So wrap up your pity and turn it to ambition
    And put your vehicle in ‘drive’ and stop by my side

    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

    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 straight and narrow
    We got one voice to give and one life to live
    Stand up for something or lie 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 meI’ll (I’ll) see (see) you (you) when you get there (when you get there)
    If you ever get there
    I’ll (I’ll) see (see) you (you) when you get there (when you get there)
    If you ever get there
    I’ll (I’ll) see (see) you (you) when you get there (when you get there)
    If you ever get there
