another friday night

lyrics

not on the same page, not even the same book
we got no oil or no fire to make this thing cook
i tried real hard but my patience running low
tried to foot the bill and she ran out the door
what do i do do i follow her out
or do i watch her fade away like food in the mouth
it ain't cute to me not even subtly
the way she carried me it's so clear to see

girls lookin good but they mind ain't ready
adjust ya levels so that the groove stay steady
i'm sitting here and i'm all alone
anutha saturday night in the city

they calling outta turn, lessons they never learn
under my skin like the worst case ofsunburn
i was all smiles but my feelings got hurt
4 years up and running that's a mighty long spurt
don't understand why they don,t understand
cuz i'm the man with the mic in my hand
wise man told me you can't teach the unteachable
specially when you reaching for heights that seem unreachable

girls lookin good but they mind ain't ready
adjust ya levels so that the groove stay steady
i'm sitting here and i'm all alone
anutha saturday night in the city

facebook chat i'm like the mecca don and
i be chatting konjit's til the earning morn
most one's that i like come from across the pond
get my engine's running then so long
when i find myself at memo's like an editor collecting stories
bizu ferenjioooch macking the local shawties
bout to jump up into this lada back to bole rwanda
hisab amchiling and i'm gone, ...uh

girls lookin good but they mind ain't ready
adjust ya levels so that the groove stay steady
i'm sitting here and i'm all alone
anutha saturday night in the city

i'm not talking bout the one's that got their own thing
ideas and visions
givin real talk with precision
keepin it cool without insisting
on nothing but the vibe at hand
i hope you understand that if the shoe don't fit
you don't have to wear it
it's just a story and i felt i had to share it
gotta bounce cuz my taxi just arrived
guess i'll be sitting all alone on yet another friday night
