http://soundcloud.com/tom-lavin sent me a song he was really proud of. I made a joke of it.
Man-a-man don't think I'm ghetto
cos I don't say 'man-a-man' or act 'ghetto'
enough for your liking,
It's a on-your-bike ting,
I spit the bars and you lie behind 'em.
I got my head screwed on.
Pick any subject, I'm clued-on.
Don't act dumb or I might thrust a head to your face
like say my name was Rhydon.
NAHH, My school's private,
and I can't drive yet.
I'm about as ghetto as a courgette,
can I get my whores, yet?
I make friends with white boys called Jack --
I'm not racist, some of my best friends are black.
I'm not saying that my 'barz' are 'hard,' but
I could make a face face mine.
I could rock a bassline like somekinda
average Bromley musician,
I just need a couple ears to listen.
Obscure reference, obscure relation,
Black auntie, black uncle
socks and sandals
people who say 'Fuckries' in reference to a single event.
Yeah I heard you in real life,
but Imma vent in verse,
Good guy in life,
on a track, inverse.
Close all the handles,
Open the doors, knobs.
Your mum's called Rob.
I don't need to make sense
when I make pence,
went busking, came back,
made about 27.
Spent it on a Freddo,
hell yeah, nigga, let's go.
See me up in Tesco,
see my up in Sainsbury's
grabbing all the basics
writing on my trainers,
make 'em look like Asics.
The attendance of the pennies in my pocket
has been slacking of late,
you couldn't relate,
I'm making a change.
Got 1p and I ain't sharing with ya,
spend it on a penny sweet I don't even need,
cos fam, I gotta keep my sweet tooth aloof.
(I'm a nuisance)
Public enemy number one
billion and five.
I'm a nice guy
with a nice side
and a nice mind,
but if you cross me I might get naughty
settle a dispute with a game of Monopoly,
make you the banker just so I can rob you
and hide the cards to Mayfair and Park Avenue (Lane)
What you gonna do? My house, my rules,
run up in your hotel, graff on the walls.
If you're Caesar,
Serve you Ribena
and I won't dilute it.
Ayoola, if you steal a single word, we're gonna fight.
