I Am The Narrator

  • Lyrics
  • I'll be that
    Lyrical narrator, social commentator
    Socially commentating, what I say's verbatim
    Verbal stipulator, oral illustrator
    Orally illustrating, what I'm stipulatin'

    Drugs rule everything around me
    Thugs makin' money
    My manor manor's I'll y'all, I'll y'all
    Pushers on my block, shottin' rock
    This is real yo
    Bitches suckin' cocks, for them rocks
    Yey they will though
    Prossies on the corner with the fuckin' high heels on
    Pick 'em up, drop 'em off
    Yey they ride real strong
    Crack addicts lookin' for other addicts to steal from
    walkin' round wondering where they'll get their next meal from

    Coke heads, on the reds, sniffin' up their wages
    Dealers on speed dial suckin' all their papers
    Still on the same number that they've had for fuckin' ages
    Sim card so old, the logo's fuckin' faded
    But turn it over an' ya see the gold nugget
    Reflectin' off the light that shines down above it
    Unregistered shit, you gotta love it
    Pay As You Go so the feds don't bug it
    Twitter for the Streets, if you want Tweets
    Eleven little digits an' the blow is all you need
    Tell me what's your poison, they got everythin' from weed
    Up to Meth Anphetamine, everybody follow me
    An' join up to their antisocial network
    Database 'o smack, coke an' crack smokin' experts
    Without it they'd go outta business, they'd no longer get work
    So anybody tryna fuck with it's gonna get hurt

    Lyrical narrator, social commentator
    Socially commentating, what I say's verbatim
    Verbal stipulator, oral illustrator
    Orally illustrating, what I'm stipulatin'

    Are you sittin' comfortably?
    Well put your seat belts on, 'Cause you're in for a harrowing ride
    'Cause this is I'll Manors, where dark shit goes on at night
    I am the narrator
    The voice that guides the blind, following not with your ears but your mind
    An' allow me to take you back, an' forth through time
    To explain the significance of things you may think are insignificant now
    But won't, farther down the lineWriter/s: BENJAMIN PAUL BALLANCE-DREW, CRAIG MERRIN
