  • Listen homeboys don't mean to bust your bubble
    But girls of the world ain't nothing but trouble
    So next time a girl gives you the play
    Just remember my rhymes and get the hell away

    Just last week when I was walking down the street
    I observed this lovely lady that I wanted to meet
    I walked up to her I said hello
    She said: "Hey, you're kind of cute" I said: "Yes, I know, but...
    By the way, sweetheart, what's your name?"
    She said: "My friends like to call me exotic Elaine"
    I said: "My name is the Prince" and she said: "Why?"
    I said: "Well, I don't know, I'm just a hell of a guy!
    But enough about me, yo, let's talk about you
    And all the wonderful things that you and I can do"
    I popped some trash and in a little bit of time
    I showed some cash and the girl was mine
    I took her over town I wined her and dined her
    She ask me 'did I like her?' I said: "Well... kinda"
    All of a sudden she jumped out her seat
    Snatched me up by my wrist and took me out to the street
    She started grabbin' all over me kissing and hugging
    So I shoved her away I said: "You better stop buggin'!"
    She got mad looked me dead in my face
    Threw her hands in the air and yelled out: "Rape!"
    I got scared when she started to yell
    So I handed her my wallet and ran like hell
    I was duckin' through alleys right and left
    But when the cops caught up they almost beat me to death
    I was arrested charged with aggravated assault
    (Yo Clancy we got him) but it wasn't my fault!

    Nevertheless don't mean to bust your bubble
    But girls of the world ain't nothing but trouble
    So next time a girl gives you the play
    Just remember my rhymes and get the hell away

    I was in a bar one Friday night
    Cooling watching a Mike Tyson fight
    I was maxin' and relaxin' sippin' on tequila
    When this girl walked up she said: "Hi, my name is Sheila"
    I responded by saying hello
    She paid for my drink and then said: "Let's go"
    20 minutes later things were starting to cook
    As we pulled up into her house I said: "I'm with you, toots"
    The music was soft and there was wine in the glasses
    She started winking and making little passes
    At me she pat me close that's when she got bold
    She started feeling up my back I said: "Oh, your hands are cold!"
    We went to her bedroom thinking of one thing
    Took the phone off the hook to avoid the annoying ring
    I caressed her body and I kissed her cheek
    And that's when I observed those satin bed sheets
    I felt that it was time for me to make my move
    I thought I better hurry up before I busted the groove
    I leaned down to kiss her but then out of the blue
    A door slammed and a voice said: "Baby, where are you?"
    Her boyfriend busted in, he grinned an evil grin
    And said: "Boy, I'ma tear your butt limb from limb!"
    I was scared as hell, where was I supposed to go?
    I just yelled: "Geronimo!" and jumped out the window
    Just my luck we were in a snow storm
    And all I had was my underwear on to keep my warm
    And to top the night off I had to break in my place
    Because my keys were in my pants back on Sheila's book case
    I was done, sneezing and coughing
    I hope this doesn't happen too often, but

    Nevertheless don't mean to bust your bubble
    But girls of the world ain't nothing but trouble
    So next time a girl gives you the play
    Just remember my rhymes and get the hell away

    Yo man you think they see your point?
    I don't know man, I don't think they really with it man
    I think you should give 'em another example
    Aight, give me a scratch let's make it funky right here

    I got a ring on my phone May 5th last year
    It was my girlfriend Betty I said: "Hello dear!
    I was just about to call you
    I got a couple tickets to the Run-D.M.C. concert" (I'm wit it)
    "It's six o'clock now, at eight will you be ready?" (Yeah)
    "Aight, fine, see you then, Betty"
    I combed my hair washed and brushed my teeth
    Got funky fresh dressed in my Le Coq Sportif
    Got to Betty's at eight I was ready to jet
    Until Betty's mom said: "Betty's not ready yet"
    I sat there for at least an hour
    It was ten after nine before she got in the shower
    9:35 she comes downstairs
    And said: "I need a little longer to finish my hair"
    At ten o'clock we had been missed the show
    She comes downstairs and says 'let's go'!?
    "Go where? Go to sleep, I'm gone!"
    I was steamin' like a demon as I drove home

    But it just goes to show not trying to bust your bubble
    But girls of the world ain't nothing but trouble
    So next time a girl gives you the play
    Just remember my rhyme
    Just remember my rhymes
    Take heed to my rhymes and get the hell away

    Man, first your parents just don't understand
    I know, right right
    Then you have these crazy nightmares
    Bro, why me? Why me?
    What's next?
    I don't know, just not these girls man, but, you know how it is, can't live wit 'em
    Can't live without 'emWriter/s: Willard C. Smith, Bettina M. Williams Clark, Jeffrey Townes, Buddy Kaye, Hugo Montenegro
