  • I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
    And a six four Impala

    I wish I was like six-foot-nine
    So I can get with Leoshi
    'Cause she don't know me but yo she's really fine
    You know I see her all the time everywhere I go
    And even in my dreams I can scheme a way to make her mine
    'Cause I know she's livin phat
    Her boyfriend's tall and he plays ball
    So how am I gonna compete with that?
    'Cause when it comes to playing basketball
    I'm always last to be picked
    And in some cases never picked at all
    So I just lean up on the wall
    Or sit up in the bleachers with the rest of the girls
    Who came to watch their men ball
    Dag y'all! I never understood, black
    Why the jocks get the fly girls and me I get the hood rats
    I tell em "scat, skittle, scabobble"
    Got hit with a bottle
    And I been in the hospital for talkin' that mess
    I confess it's a shame when you living in a city
    That's the size of a box and nobody knows yo' name
    Glad I came to my senses
    Like quick-quick got sick-sick to my stomach
    Overcommeth by the thoughts of me and her together
    Right? So when I asked her out she said I wasn't her type

    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
    And a six four Impala

    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
    And a six four Impala

    I wish I had a brand-new car
    So far, I got this hatchback
    And everywhere I go, yo, I gets laughed at
    And when I'm in my car I'm laid back
    I got an 8-track and a spare tire in the backseat, but that's flat
    And do you really wanna know what's really whack?
    See I can't even get a date, so, what do you think of that?
    I heard that prom night is a bomb night
    With the hood rats you can hold tight
    But really though, I'm a Figaro
    When I'm in my car I can't even get a hello
    Well, so many people wanna cruise Crenshaw on Sunday
    Well, then I'mma have to get in my car and go
    You know I take the 110 until the 105
    Get off at Crenshaw, tell my homies "look alive"
    'Cause it's hard to survive when your living
    In a concrete jungle and these girls keep passing me by
    She looks fly, she looks fly
    Makes me say "my, my, my"

    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
    And a six four Impala

    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
    And a six four Impala

    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller

    Hey, I wish I had my way
    'Cause everyday would be a Friday
    And you could even speed on the highway
    I would play ghetto games
    Name my kids ghetto names Little Mookie, Big Al, Lorraine
    Yo you know that's on the real
    So if you're down on your luck
    Then you should know just how I feel 'cause if you don't want me around
    See I go simple, I go easy, I go Greyhound
    Hey, you, what's that sound?
    Everybody look what's going down
    Ah yes, ain't that fresh?
    Everybody wants to get down like that

    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
    And a six four Impala

    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
