Geto Boys

Geto Boys - 6 Feet Deep

Verse One: Scarface

June twenty eight was the date thirty eight

till the chest plate mommy dear's cryin' at the wake

And everybody's dressed up in black suits

goin' to pay their last respects to the black troop

Why'd he have to die

Is the question that we're under

But everyone knows that everyday's a different number

So when your time comes just remember G

you'll always have a place in this world as a memory

Especially my boys who passed away back in '92

best believe that all the boys in the hoods got love for you

Wherever we go, wherever we be, we be thinkin'

of how we hung in the clubs smokin' and drinkin'

Never missin' out on a hood fight

'cause ever-ee-day back in the hood we had a good fight

Everything is changed and people-r-lookin lonely

it's gonna be strange spendin' New Year's Eve without your homie

But ain't much that we can do

except pour brew throughout the crew to make sure we all remember you

And believe me it hurts

to see the boy you broke bread with six feet in the dirt... dirt

[There's far too many of you dying]

[There's far too many of you dying]

Verse Two: Bushwick Bill

Another homie got smoked but it's no surprise

everybody's trippin cause the boy was to young to die

A sad sight to see my homie take his last breath

everybody's trippin cause they can't accept my homeys death

Another killin' was reported on the evenin' news

somebody's brother got killed behind a pair a shoes

In the midst of all this shit I think about my self

wonderin' when somebody's gonna try to take me off the shelf

But I refuse to be another violent casualty

so when I'm rollin' I pack my pistol grip beside my knee

Cause on the city streets today a brother jus' can't win

when the people you think are your friends really ain't your friends Uh

And Bushwick can't sleep

when everybody aroun' me keeps fallin' six feet deep

[There's far too many of you dying]

[There's far too many of you dying]

Verse Three: Scarface

The pain that's deep inside of everybody grows

as they approach to see the body before the casket close

The person standin' nex' to me has snapped the flip

once I seen the casket closed I knew that that was it

The whole entire family spoke on his defence

the choir sung the songs that make us reminisce

And durin' all the singing I broke down myself

when I looked and seen the family that my partner lef'

And then the choir broke into its final song

thinkin' to myself the worst is yet to come

Everyone was headed for the final flight

as we creeped along the gravel on the burial sight

The director said his words and there was not a sound

as they lower my little partner inside the ground

Everybody dropped their flowers on the coffin top

and then they work alone with the concrete block and that's deep

[There's far too many of you dying]

[There's far too many of you dying]

Verse Four: Big Mike

Alotta homies die

Alotta mothers cry

I watch tears fall down from their eyes

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to take the chance

they chose the music so they had to dance

Couldn't tell 'im nothin

was a player, had ta have it

got caught up in the game now ma boy's in the casket

And everybody's lookin' for somebody else to blame

ashamed to let his mother know that he was in a gang

We used to kick it on the ave at night

comin' up tryin' to have the finer things in life

But now my boys gone, I wish he was at home

I wish he wouldn't a never fell victim to the clone

So when I drink a brew for you I pour some on the block son

you might be gone but you damn sure ain't forgotten

So on remember whenever or wherever

dead or alive real partners come together, and you know that

[There's far too many of you dying]

[There's far too many of you dying
