Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win

Album: Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2 (2011)
  • It's hot here gotta say it's so
    I got you right where I want
    Got an honest face so you turn your back
    When in doubt run up your attack
    At one time you were slick and your grill was cold
    And now funny how the shit gets old
    You can run you can run but it will catch up
    Like now see me I'll show you up
    Now yo wanna get back when you had your shine
    But you run you can run but it will catch up
    Like now see me I'll show you up

    Now you wanna get back when you had your shine
    But you run the same thing every time when you rhyme
    Can't stop wont stop no compromise
    It's a house of cards built out of lies
    Coming down like a bird floating on the mist
    Turn on the track back track and twist
    You work hard to climb the list
    Twenty years of schooling and they put you on the day shift

    I know the danger of a man (that's danger)
    Who's been to hell and back again (danger)
    Can't tell tomorrow from where he's been (that's danger)
    Don't play no game that I can't win (danger)

    You're caught now by the skin you're in
    In a bind now your thoughts go to all your sins
    Hits much harder back better count on that
    I tell you what we know always holds us back
    Now you mutter and you stutter and you putter don't stop
    I got in your heart and I shook you up
    In a bind now your caught by the fear setting in
    Choked on the thought that you don't it again

    Keep the competition in check
    You draft your plans at your drafting desk
    You try to play to win but now you lost
    Like clams with no tartar sauce scheming in the attic
    Thought you had it
    So dramatic
    I-Got the stats mathematics
    Automatic-systematic
    She's super bad now
    Whatcha watcha want now?

    I know the danger of a man (that's danger)
    Who's been to hell and back again (danger)
    Can't tell tomorrow from where he's been (that's danger)
    Don't play no game that I can't win (danger)
    Don't play no game that I can't win (danger)
    Don't play no game that I can't win (that's danger)
    Don't play no game that I can't win (danger danger)
    Don't play no game that I can't win (that's danger)

    I know the danger of a man (that's danger)
    Who's been to hell and back again (danger)
    Can't tell tomorrow from where he's been (that's danger)
    Don't play no game that I can't win... (danger)

    Don't play no game that I can't win
    Don't play no game that I can't win Writer/s: SANTI WHITE, ADAM HOROVITZ, MICHAEL DIAMOND, ADAM YAUCH
