Born Too Slow

Album: Legion of Boom (2003)
  • Just like seventies goofballs
    He's waiting on last calls
    Well listen to Method Man
    'Cause if you leave him the last line
    Don't leave him the brown kind
    Born just a little too slow
    Just a little too slow

    Just a little too
    Oh your lights are burning too
    Just a little too
    Oh just a little too

    'Cause if he picks up the wrong kind
    You'll know you'll be turning blind
    Gun at your head
    Lay him down just the wrong way
    You know that he's turning gray
    Born just a little too slow

    Oh your lights are burning too,
    Burning too, burning too slow.
    Oh your lights are burning too, just a little too.
    Just a little too

    Your lights are burning too
    Just a little too
    Oh your lights are burning too
    Just a little to slow

    'Cause if you leave him the last line
    Don't leave him the brown kind
    Well listen to Method Man

    So if you're leavin' him callin'
    You know you'll be fallin'
    Lights are burning low
    Your stars are burnin' gold
    Lights are burning low.
    Your stars are burnin' gold
