On the DL
So here it is

fuck it

friends or no friends I had enough bullshit

to last me clear to the ends of my term

I hate worms

so I'ma bring in the fish

and induce my backhand

to refrain from my fist

yeah I wish that I change

then I could shed all the (main)

you trippin' on my ego

but all my shit is sustained

order order

I cross the border for a spot in the sun

I'm so down with myself

bitch I could chill as a bum ho hum


I'm so burnt that I'm beat

I got my fears on my nerves

and the crowd on my feet

the only one who has my (back) is me

in reality, see

I'm constantly fightin heavy

when we journey through the sea

oui oui monsieur

I'm true to the game

I believe my friends you (slip) me

I might have the ego but you'll tell me who're trippin'

I know

and it shows

I can look at your nose

and just tell that you're effected by the e-g-o

on the downlow


I woke up in the mornin' to a girl who's butt's soft

gotta brush my teeth

clean my nuts off

put on the gear that I'ma wear throughout my day

but before I take a shower I ain't ashamed to say

when I think of the night before, and the heat of passion

your big brown booty

my mind starts flashin'

I'm lookin' in the mirror with my cock on rock

should I pursue to do you

or just stroke my knot

while my girl is asleep

I'm caught in a jam

went to the bathroom

with cocoa-butter in my hand

closed the door behind me

locked it very tight

thinkin' of all the naughty things we did last night

slipped out my underoos sat on the toilet bowl

and let the hand I hold the mike with

take control

closed my eyes tight so it would seem more real

I'm thinkin' about the crazy ways you made me feel

as my thoughts get deeper

and a little more intense

if you don't know what comes next

well you're just too dense

on the downlow


[man you Pharcyde y'know what I'm sayin dude, this is it

man damn, Tre]

he's chasin' me

scrapin' my knee on the cement

is what I did

what dug

look under the rug

and I got it

hit him in the heart with my (night struck a) slug

but no

this nigga had to go

peep this

I was asleep

he climbed in my window

grabbed me around the neck

said scream and you're dead

I thought it was the devil

'cause his face was glowin' red

he was a brother

but this brother had the devil in his eye

he was out to get i-m-a-n-i

first I (took) my trigger finger with a wiggle

the devil jumps into my eyes and then I giggle

in the back of my head

you know Imani feels no shame

I've got my nine I said

with my millimeter go bang

I got him

he's crippled so he crawls across the floor

he's bleeding everywhere and now he's reachin' for the door

bang bang bang

yep I got 'im again

his story's soundin' sad

like the movie Ben

but um

anyway I'm just protectin' my shit

'cause if it wasn't me he's killin'

then my moms mighta got it

it's on the downlow

don't tell nobody I killed him all right?

on the downlow

on the downlow

on the downlow

'cause you should know


flip fly caught you soarin sky high

but a

fly slip wash you up fly drip my

eyes cry

tears fear

a baby eagle seagull shit falls quicker than a local hero

zero from zero leaves nothin'

now ain't that somethin'?

and all this time you been wantin' somethin'

for nothin'

the crew has pushed your button 'cause your frame is on recall

the homeys kick the (fact) 'cause its wack to let you fall

(why doesn't what) you're rollin in the 'hood

so niggas that don't wantcha

and you're fucked

crazy fucked

like the slut Heather Hunter

(with me) the one that punches shit

I know you'll get the pick

with the cars and the girls

and the ego and the loot chief

I'll make this brief

I'd be lyin through my teeth

if I told you you was dope

and your benefits was reaped

from my ego

those (libro) kids are creepin' with the steel

and you're cappin'

'bout this rappin'

and they're cavin' in the grille

on the downlow

on the downlow

on the downlow

'cause you should know

'bout the downlow

on the downlow

on the downlow

'cause you should know
