Coolio - Gangster's Paradise

2322

You wanna tell me what this is all about?

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I take a look at my life and realize there's nothin' left

'Cause I been blasting and laughing so long that

even my mama thinks that my mind is gone

But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it

Me be treated like a punk, you know that's unheard of

You better watch out your talkin' and where your walkin'

Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk

I really hate to trip, but I gotta loc

As they croak, I see myself in the pistol smoke Fool

I'm the kinda G the little homies wanna be like

On my knees in the night, saying prayers in the street light

Been spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Been spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Look at the situation they got me facin'

I can't never have a normal life, I was raised by the street

So I gotta be down with the hood team

Too much television watching, got me chasing dreams

I'm an educated fool with money on my mind

Got my ten in my hand and a gleam in my eye

I'm a loc'd out gangsta, set trippin' banger

And my homies is down, so don't arouse my anger, fool

Death ain't nothing but a heart beat away

I'm livin' life do or die, what can I say?

I'm 23 now but will I live to see 24?

The way things is goin' I don't know

Tell me why are we so blind to see

That the ones we hurt are you and me?

Been spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise

We've been spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Power and the money Money and the power

Minute after minute Hour after hour

Everybody's running but half of them ain't livin'

What's going on in the kitchen but I don't know what's cooking

They say I gotta learn but no one's here to teach me

If they can't understand it How can they reach me?

I guess they can't I guess they won't

I guess they front That's how I know my life is outta luck, fool

We've been spending most our lives livin' in a gangsta's paradise

We've been spending most our lives livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Keep spending most our lives livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Keep spending most our lives livin' in a gangsta's paradise

Tell me why are we so blind to see

That the ones we hurt are you and me?

Tell me why are we so blind to see

That the ones we hurt are you and me?
