KENDRICK LAMAR lyrics : "County Building Blues [Target Deluxe Edition]"

Intro:

Greeting boys and girls

My name is Petey P
Kendrick's childhood imaginary friend (that's right)
I am your neighbor

And I'd like to welcome you to good kid, m.A.A.d city
So grab your cartoons and cereal
Your pop guns and fireworks

And sing along

Hook:


When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million
Spend it all in front of the county building

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane
When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million
Spend it all in front of the county building

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane

Verse 1:


(Kendrick, you remember that one time when we was...)
I've been waiting on this day since Dr. Dre and Pac

Was on Rosecrans in that burgerstand at '95
People staring at 'em in amazement
Reservations at the Days Inn

We was living out a hotel at the time
Breakfast, lunch and dinner chicken from Kentucky Fried
Mama babysitting Section 8 vouchers the move

When nothing else to lose but a burger flipping job
Close my eyes inside the swap meet and imagine it's a mansion
Gold ballroom, AK-47 dancing

Howling at the moon, what's a pack of hungry babies?
Hope you feed us soon, bite your back, you die of rabies
Everyday we pray to eat at the table at Sizzlers

But never make the visit, if better days was on its way
Then they make the decision, to make the wrong turn
So for now we heat this skillet so this canned food can burn

(Oh I remember that, it was the ravioli with the hot sauce in it, right?)

Hook:


When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million
Spend it all in front of the county building

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane
When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million
Spend it all in front of the county building

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane

Bridge:


And all the ghetto children in the world say, "that's my car"
All the ghetto boys say, "that's my car"

All the ghetto girls say, "that's my car"
When we grow up, when we grow up
Ghetto children in the world say, "that's my car"

All the ghetto boys say, "that's my car"
All the ghetto girls say, "that's my car"
When we grow up, when we grow up


Verse 2:


(N*gga you remember the smoke and the burning buildings and sh*t?)
Couple stolen T.V.'s and a seat belt for my safety
Played the passenger I think it's five years after eighty

Seven, do the math, '92 don't you be lazy
Looking out the window, notice all the essentials
Of a block party that stop for a second, then it rekindle

Like a flame from a trick candle, everybody got dental
Insurance 'cause we 'bout to floss, you get that couch I sent you?
I heard that from a block away, probably had credentials

Of a scholar but sh*t not today, them Dayton Spokes was his to take
Refrigerators, barbecue pits, and Jordan kicks
They did invasions while helicopters recorded it

Hello Mi-Mister Miyagi, I want them ten woo-woofers
Say that you got me if not, I'll dig in your drawer for it
The swap meet was the bulls-eye like Tauruses
Murder was the melody you should know what the chorus is
"Papa you really telling me we can just get some more of it

If we run out?" He said, "lil n*gga today the poor is rich
Don't tell your mom that you seen a Molotov bomb
If she ask just know you have to lie and son don't forget
B*tches ain't sh*t, hoes ain't neither
N*ggas gon' snitch, watch the company you keeping

And one day you'll put money in the ghetto when you got it
Rather than having to hustle off these Rodney King riots"
(That's right the mothaf*ckin' Rodney King...
You was with your daddy on Bullis Road)


Hook:

When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million
Spend it all in front of the county building
Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane

When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million
Spend it all in front of the county building
Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane
