I don’t know, but today seems kind of odd.

I got my grub on, but didn’t pig out.

Hooked it up for later as I hit the do’
Thinking, ‘Will I live another twenty-fo’?’

And if I hit the switch,
I can make the ass drop.

And everything is alright.
I got a beep from Kim and she can fuck all night.
Called up the homies, and I’m askin’ y’all:

Dropped her ass off and then chirped out.
Today was like one of those fly dreams …
Didn’t even see a berry flashing those high beams.
No helicopter looking for a murder.

Even saw the lights of the Goodyear Blimp,
and it read, ‘Ice Cube’s A Pimp.’
Drunk as hell, but no throwin’ up;
halfway home and my pager’s still blowin’ up.
