Careless Timing


There I go

Rappin' like a cat again

With no tail

Just able to talk in rhyme

What I don't got

I sure could use right now

Like a $150 hooker

To be with me

In that sort of a way

'Cause I am that way

With the ladies

Who don't have any diseases

"It's a shame" that God is to blame

For the timing

Of my last chance

That ended

So quickly

Oh, my God, are you blaming me?

Well, in the long run, I guess it's my fault

But here I stop

Where I'm at

Time to think

Am I so poor that I

Can't have my way

With anybody?

Well, I really should be savin' up

And all of that stuff

Hell, I may as well buy a yacht

__while I'm at it

'Cause I just can't aford all that

It cost to have sex

"You know" me

I never have money

I be neva' ballin'

Hella' hollerin' at all the bitches

But lately neva' gettin' none

Such a pitty

Such pitty

So pitiful

Such a pitiful thing

Well, I take a bunch of pills

But they don't change the world

They only change me

Into a heartless dick

That's all I understand about my medz

They only expand my head

"And that's all I have to say about that"
