Got you where I want you
I got five up on your dime
And if you want to peep on something
Peep what I got stuck between
Your eyes
And since I don't believe
A word you say
Save it for another, baby brother
Swallow time to pay
Up on the ladder they sing
How high?
Does a brother have to climb
To touch the light
But wait 'till I get done
