    waitin on me
    couldn't be late

    My home girl
    Always late, lol
    9am got to try and peel myself up..
    Sip on sum coffee
    Shower
    Ramblin tryin
    Ta find sumthin ta wear
    Oh man!!!! dis hair

    Who don't like it
    They can style it
    headset and locked the door..

    (g)

    I'm smilin
    I keep steppin

    (mb)
    Down the steps I went
    Walkin my pace..
    Wave and smiling
    At the passer byers
    Trippin on dat
    Boy on the corner
    Always tryin ta holla
    Stop at the post office
    Stepping at my pace
    Old man standin on the corner
    Cup in his hand
    Drop him a dime..
    Little girls playin in the street
    Laughin doin there thang..

    (g)

    too bad it belongs
    to such a punk

    I can't quite hear
    tha bass

    (mb)

    All down in his seat
    Like he all that..
    No where around noon
    Got the music bassin out
    Vibration on the sidewalk..
    Doin my thang at my pace

    (g & mb)
    coffee shop buzzin
    we huggin
    barista muggin
    then we be chuggin
    peeps we be peepin
    while beverages steamin
    surprise
    there's an open mic
    didn't know that
    but we like
    the poetry that flows from the lips
    inspires our own fingertips
    we scrawlin like mad
    so crazy flowin it's sad

    the other twenty one
    look at each other and say aiight

    This was Great!.......you two should do this more often

    I could picture each part of this, it was so real, entertaining
    and a little amusing.....the hair, that friend that's always late, lol
    or even that poet that decides to read "20" pieces of their work
    I've experienced that....

    Very nice collab........Enjoyed it much!
