    The game is hard coar
    Never know when the winning card is at your door
    Takin chances to finish it but you still placed poor
    Because your last card in SPADES is on the floor
    Inching closer
    And it's a "2"
    Which means "you"
    The number of your gang has just been reduced

    In BLACKJACK that's "7+8+9" ......you busted and the dealer just beat you
    Click Clock.....that's the barrow of the next player...he wants his money from you
    But you ain't got non so it's your face........sorry boo you through
    So get your crew
    Cause it's a battle tonight and in the game it includes you

    You got some choices though....I expect you to TUNK OUT
    Cause if you don't my boy Jimmy gon' take you out
    You must not pout
    You choose to play.....and when you lose I'm not gon' shout
    Cause I'm the winner and your face will lose a mouth

    Cause it's a game baby
    And don't take this so easy
    But just because I'm a lady
    I play well and when I'm finish you're be cryin' " Lord Save Me."

    The Game
    The Game
    The Game
    The Game
    It's my game baby!!!!

    Mike and Ike
    These are the people who didn't play right
    They're dead today....they're not in sight
    Mike was a hussler at night
    A family man in day that couldn't fight
    Stole from the wrong people and got his head blown out of sight
    Now he sleeping with the stars so bright
    You feel me right?
    Ike
    Man, that was my man
    But he stole from my boys hand
    And my boy took his name brands
    When that wasn't enough to can
    He shout him in the heart.....but it didn't go as planned
    He was still alive so he cut off his hand
    But in the game it's man for man
    And your hand
    Better be well planned
    Cause if it ain't......you'll be the next to leave this land
    Faster than you can get up to ran
    So what do you plan
    In
    This game
    This game
    This game
    This game?

    Sure most think they can win
    But when that last card is pin
    That wish becomes "THEN"
    And the present is wishes of a friend
    Or at least next of kin
    You feel me?
    The game is played by the most fearless
    It can be drug dealers, doctors, or the moneyless
    But when you lose you know you lifeless
    You can't protest
    Because you choose to take that test
    And it would be unjust
    To even think of gettin' up cause it's much less
    opportunity for you in case
    You forgot YOU IN A MESS
    cause you played the game
    the game
    the game
    the game
    the game
    WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have lost count of how many of my black people played the game wrong
    And I can count the number of us on one hand that still remain strong
    Some where along
    The way
    We detoured and strayed
    Into a never winning game that because of us has remained until this day
    It has taken almost of all us but STILL I pray
    That someone will read this poem and stay
    away
    from this game that generation after generation have tended to play
    And go out of the world the RIGHT way
    The game until this day
    Increases the death rate
    Determines my peoples own fate
    But STILL like fools we play
    the game
    the game
    the game
    the game!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Morning after morning we wake
    To news reports of all my homies lives it takes
    BANG!!!!! BANG!!!!!!! BANG!!!!! that's the sound the weapons makes
    And time after time I found my OWN game to be at stake
    All it took though was me to see my own fate
    And stand up to this game straight
    And realize that tha hard coar game doesn't pay
    I transferred all my hate
    Into a route to a career that pays
    But still I lay
    And wonder what they
    the ones still in the game think they
    will achieve may
    God bless them way
    Pass what I could pray
    I pray
    They find a way
    out the game
    out the game
    out the game
    out the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!







    CAUSE THE GAME WILL KILL YA FO SHO' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
