I Get Around
by 2Pac

Album: Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. (1993)
  • Aw yeah, I get around
    Still clown with the Underground, when we come around
    Stronger than ever

    Back to get wreck
    All respect to those who break their neck to keep their hoes in check
    'Cause oh they sweat a brother majorly
    And I don't know why, your girl keeps paging me
    She tell me that she needs me, cries when she leaves me
    And every time she sees me, she squeeze me, lady take it easy!
    Hate to sound sleazy, but tease me, I don't want it if it's that easy
    Hey yo bust it, baby got a problem saying bye bye
    Just another hazard of a fly guy
    You ask why, don't matter, my pockets got fatter
    Now everybody's looking for the latter
    And ain't no need in being greedy
    If you wanna see me dial the beeper number baby when you need me
    And I'll be there in a jiffy
    Don't be picky, just be happy with this quickie
    But when you learn, you can't tie me down
    Baby doll, check it out, I get around

    What you mean you don't know? I get around
    The Underground just don't stop for hoes, I get around
    Still down with the Underground, I get around
    Yeah, hey yo Shock, let them hoes know

    Now you can tell from my everyday fits, I ain't rich
    So cease and desist with them tricks (tricks)
    I'm just another black man caught up in the mix (mix)
    Trying to make a dollar out of fifteen cents (A dime and a nickel)
    Just cause I'm a freak don't mean that we could hit the sheets
    Baby I can see, that you don't recognize me
    I'm Shock G, the one who put the satin on your panties
    Never knew a hooker that could share me, I get around

    What's up love, how you doing? (All right)
    Well I've been hanging singing, trying to do my thing
    Oh, you heard that I was banging
    Your home girl you went to school with, that's cool
    But did she tell you about her sister and your cousin? Thought I wasn't
    See, weekends were made for Michelob
    But it's a Monday, my day, so just let me hit it, yo
    And don't mistake my statement for a clown
    We can keep in the down low long as you know, that I get around

    2Pacalypse Now don't stop for hoes, I get around
    Why I ain't call you? Ha ha, please

    Finger tips on the hips as I dip, gotta get a tight grip, don't slip
    Loose lips sink ships, it's a trip
    I love the way she licks her lips, see me jocking
    Put a little twist in her hips cause I'm watching
    Conversations on the phone til the break of dawn
    Now we all alone, why the lights on?
    Turn 'em off, time to set it off, get you wet and soft
    Something's on your mind, let it off
    You don't know me, you just met me, you won't let me
    Well if I couldn't have it (silly rabbit) why you sweating me?
    It's a lot of real G's doing time
    'Cause a groupy bit the truth and told a lie
    You picked the wrong guy baby if you're too fly
    You need to hit the door, search for a new guy
    'Cause I only got one night in town
    Break out or be clown, baby doll are you down?
    I get around

    Round and round, round we go
    Round and round, round we go
    Round and round, round we go
    Round and round, round we go

    Round and round, round we go
    Round and round, round we go
    Round and round, round we go
    Round and round, round we go Writer/s: ROGER TROUTMAN, LARRY TROUTMAN, SHIRLEY MURDOCK, TUPAC SHAKUR, GREGORY JACOBS, RON BROOKS
