Rankin Family, The

Rankin Family, The - Padstow (The May Morning Song)


Comin from the left, now here's a little somehin

I slapped together just for you and your weak posse

I dedicate it to those who don't know

That I'm a maniac straight from the heart of Low Pro

And for a livin I break necks of punk chumps who slipped

Matter of fact, I should bust you in the lip

But nah, I ain't livin that way, so bro

I rather slap you with knowledge as I go solo

Hey yo, Aladdin, what's up with all these wanna-be

M-i-c fake controllers takin over the scene?

They don't know who I am, the young boy and yours truly

Step off, new jack, you're just a new Rudy

Of rap, you're bound to get slapped steppin to me

Strunger than a smoker on PCP

I cannot lose, I got the downest deejay in the world

Aladdin break the needles while the Technics twirl

Hey yo, I know there's nowadays a lotta rappers holdin a mic

Wastin time but naw, they ain't hype

They same old styles, yo, with the same old things

And at shows the same old wack routines

I like runnin on stage and clownin MC's

So when you see me at a show, don't even step to me

Be alert, cause the W will spin the chart

You can't touch me, boy, I come straight from the heart


Most MC's nowadays, they don't come from the heart

They rap what the record label wants

But why can't I talk about the way that I'm livin?

Yo, day by day suckers robbin and stealin

Bein shot at, stabbed, that ain't nothin to me

Just another damn way of l-i-f-e

But then again I ain't supposed to even mention a gun

Or I be charged with corruptin the mind of a young

One, yo, that's wack, what up with showbiz?

Bannin my shows cause I tell it like it is

If I was rich, then I'd rap about a Lamborghini

Got some pretty women in grip-tight bikinis

But I ain't, like I first said from the start

I'm a muthafucka, I come straight from the heart


Anxiety is buggin me to cold get ill

Grab a bat, engrave on a sucker face 'Louisville'

But naw, I better chill that ain't the life to live

Couple years in the county bread and water for a meal

Over what? A peasy knuckleheaded MC

Who doubted my ability, y'all know what I mean

The kinda suckers who brag, yo, you know who they are

They make one wack record and think they a star

Suckers gettin airplay, but the record ain't kickin

You punks doin shows for Kentucky Fried Chicken

Every rapper now wanna wear a clock on his neck

There's one Flavor Flav, so give it a rest

Hey yo, Aladdin, help me out, rip the record apart

Pay attention, I come straight from the heart

[DJ Aladdin scratches]

(Cold get stupid)


Power, pat, rhymes are goin gold

More soul, bro, than the Angelist David Saphro

I come straight from the heart with the rhyme

Givin suckers like you and him a piece of my mind

Conditioning my dome to wax and tax suckers who're wack

Where's the milk, I eat you up like applejacks

To describe myself three words to tell

Hm - the W is crazy as hell

Back in the streets of L.A. I be rockin

And you can find Aladdin cuttin records in Compton

Though we ain't from the same city, we're down

You got beef with that, punk, you're bound to get clowned

Suckers in line to get dissed, I'm ballin my fist

Who's next up to taste some of this?

Hysterical, critical, flexible lyrical ??????

Yo, MC's can't hang, boy, I put em in a hospital

You shoulda known from the jump or the start

Every lyric I throw I come straight from the heart
