  • Hello Brooklyn!

    Hello Brooklyn how you doing
    Where you going and can I come too
    And if I can I'ma be your man
    You could be my lady and have my baby
    And drive my car and drive me crazy
    Wherever your going baby girl just take me
    Cause I'm so taken if you taken
    I'm just saying baby I'm just saying

    Like a mamma you birthed me, Brooklyn you nursed me
    Schooled me with hard knocks, better than Burkley
    They say you murked me by the time I was 21
    That shit disturbed me, but you never hurt me
    Hello Brooklyn, if we had a daughter
    Guess what I'ma call her, Brooklyn carter
    When I left you for Virginia it didn't offend ya
    Cause you know I only stepped out to get dinner
    And I'm eating, so much I bought extra
    So much so that dinners now turned into breakfast
    I only roll Lexus to hug your road
    I love your corners, I'm half your soul
    Hello Brooklyn

    Hello Brooklyn how you doing
    Where you going and can I come too
    And if I can I'ma be your man
    You could be my lady and have my baby
    And drive my car and drive me crazy
    Wherever your going baby girl just take me
    Cause I'm so taken if you taken
    I'm just saying baby I'm just saying

    Hello Brooklyn

    Whats your story, she said she's eating on the run but she ain't Nore
    She said she's got a man but he ain't worried
    But baby I'ma have to rob him like Orie
    She said she love B.I.G. and she likes Tupac
    And when I said Jay-Z she said it's the Roc
    I'ma leave it like this like this like that
    Where Brooklyn at, where Brooklyn at
    Have you seen her, and when she tell you something you better believe her
    She told me she like my new Orleans demeanor
    And so I said goodbye Katrina and hello Brooklyn

    But baby you are the sweetest site eyes could see
    I said hello Brooklyn, but baby I hope you never say goodbye to me
    I said hello Brooklyn, but baby you are so damn fine to me
    And I remember the time, place and the weather from the day you said hi to me
    And I say hello Brooklyn

    Brooklyn you crazy look how you made me
    Razor blades in my mouth walking 'round behaving
    Or demented black hoodies and timberland'd
    Always scheming you see the gleam on that niggas pendant
    Hello Brooklyn, you bad influence
    Look what you had me doing
    But I ain't mad at you, look at my attitude it says my life's too real
    Check out my ice grill baby I'm cold as ice
    I come from Brownsville but my "beds in the 'stye"
    Blow la la "flatten your bush" till we smoking c.i.
    What up to the boy d.i. you know I handle B.I.
    I don't half step on the 'caine, ask the dreads 'bout I
    How you want it slow she like it hard cold
    So I grind slow iller than out in square mall back in the 9-0
    My fine hoe we got some victims to catch
    So in a couple years baby I'ma bring you some next

    Hello Brooklyn how you doing
    Where you going and can I come too
    And if I can I'ma be your man
    You could be my lady and have my baby
    And drive my car and drive me crazy
    Wherever your going baby girl just take me
    Cause I'm so taken if you taken
    I'm just saying baby I'm just saying

    But baby you are the sweetest site eyes could see
    I said hello Brooklyn, but baby I hope you never say goodbye to me
    I said hello Brooklyn, but baby you are so damn fine to me
    And I remember the time, place and the weather from the day you said hi to me
    And I say hello BrooklynWriter/s: DERRICK BAKER, DWAYNE CARTER, SHAWN CARTER, SHAWN C CARTER, MICHAEL LOUIS DIAMOND, MATT DIKE, ADAM KEEFE HOROVITZ, JOHN ROBERT KING, MICHAEL S SIMPSON, ADAM NATHANIEL YAUCH

  • Chris from Corte Madera, CaThis is a great song. One of the best off the album. I love at the end of the song, Jay says: (talking to brooklyn)"We got some victims catch, so in a couple years baby Ima bring you some Nets." Talking about his ownership of the New Jersey Nets and their potential move to Brooklyn. thats a great line, no one can top Jay.
