Yeah, It's That Easy Lyrics

Stepping Stones
Baby you've been up, broken down
Every man knows your name in this whole damn town
In every bar they know your drink, what should I think
I turned around to look and you gave some dude a wink
I thought I'd be happy with a woman like you,
but you walked on my pride and my manhood too
I don't know too much but one thing I know
A man stuck on you is like a stepping stone

Because you keep using me like a stepping stone
Because you keep using me like a stepping stone
Because you keep using me like a stepping stone
Because you keep using me like a stepping stone

What you forgot to mention, what was your real intention
Did you want a man to love, or someone to prop and carry you up
To a higher status, but the matter of fact is, your detachment
Will bring you further down and now you're all used up
don't bother coming round

Because you keep using me like a stepping stone
Because you keep using me like a stepping stone
Because you keep using me like a stepping stone
Because you keep using me like a stepping stone

Well, I remember back to waht you put me thru
I keep thinking to myself
What's wrong with you
Ain't it enough to have a man for a lover and a friend
Tear him up and leave him when the money's spent
Well, you're just like Delilah sittin' in her den
You take the strongest man and break 'em down again
But I have gained some knowledge
Go on pack your things and move back to college

Because you keep using me like a stepping stone
Because you keep using me like a stepping stone
Because you keep using me like a stepping stone
Because you keep using me like a stepping stone


I-76
Katman
65 25 Parkline Drive
And like always I'm kicking it live
Gotta call the fellas to see if they is with this
Gonna get down with the sounds of big breakfast
Start off the day with some Bob Marley
Back to the woods for the fresh parlay
Maybe even spark a little Nicki J.
Then it's off to center city in the fastest way
But if you've gotta get downtown real quick
The only way to go is I-76
Unless of course you wanna take the scenic view
Then East or West River Drive is right for you
But if you ain't got any time to lose
Put the pedal to the metal for that voyage cruise
So get on down to I-76
Because in 1996 there ain't no
Tricks in the mix

G. Love
Back in 1982
Man it was real cool
and in school
If we got good grades
Our parents would take us to a 76ers game
I got my game and there ain't no shame
Big shots for Mo Cheeks
And Moses Malone
Julius Erving called Philly his home
Bobby Jones, Daryl Dawkins
Andrew Toney sinking threes
Rocky Balboa comes from south Philly
So if you want to make it
On time to the show

There's only one route you have to know
Get to Fishtown avoid all that jive
I suggest that you drive on I-95
Wanna get downtown but feeling in a fix
Get on the route they call 676
The most expensive expansive
piece of interstate they ever made
The fellas ain't famous but
They got good game
Get along 76ers
Charles Barkley dissed Larry Bird
Get along 76ers
Charles Barkley dissed Larry Bird

Smiles
Shh-Hoops the middle man
Now disguised as the Joy
Valentine Smiles to the Katman play
Loungin' leather seats 76 gettin' nice
Cadillac D.B.L. Kristopher pulled the heist
Expressway expression Soda Pop pressin'
up another piece baby new year painted session
I'm guessin' the answer to the question
All the Philly Fellas livin' life as a profession
Destined to escape a la Spector
Ah Wilderness yea prep jetta boy
Friday night rap Broncos and Pepper Shakers
In the city Ice Dogs Love show I the skyscraper
The route it's I-76
I'm loungin' Otto Shoup singin' Davey Quickness
Li Li of the Va Li love a ligum everyday
I'm givin' praise from High Hill Juice to Philly
Katman
But if you've gotta get downtown real quick
The only way to go is I-76

Unless of course you wanna take the scenic view
Then East or West River Drive is right for you
But if you ain't got any time to lose
Put the pedal to the metal for that voyage cruise
So get on down to I-76
Because in 1996 there ain't no
Tricks in the mix

Get along 76ers
Charles Barkley dissed Larry Bird
Get along 76ers
Dr. J! Moses Malone

Get along 76ers
Jerry Stackhouse and Iverson

Lay Down The Law
Greg's gonna lay down the law
Greg's gonna lay down the law
You've got to show me
lay down the law
You've got to show me
G. Love
Oh brother Greg see I've been watchin' you
Wherever you go then trouble follows too
You better take some time to figure out what's wrong
You better live your life and try to be so strong
Oh brother Greg this time you've taken it too far
That's when your girlfriend stole my VCR
Drove to the pawnshop in my landlord's car
Now she's got the money and the drugs
And you a junkie like a thug
Greg's gonna lay down the law
Greg's gonna lay down the law
You've got to show me
lay down the law
You've got to show me

Smiles
Brother Greg
It's been a long long time
Since we maxed it nice
Got fresh
By that seashore line
It was easy
Getting glazed up in the ocean
Time pull pull the tide
Ride waves feel the motion
Then we got parted
Separted like the seas

Felt like I was all alone
In a different country
But now we're back together, man
And never shall we part
Found the link
Got electricity
Here to stand tall
Greg's gonna lay down the law
Greg's gonna lay down the law

All Fellas
Can't you see
That you could be
All that you
Want to be
Won't you just come along
Hear the brothers sing your song
Brother Greg has gone away
He'll be back some lonesome day
So won't you just lay the law
This just might be your last call
Greg's gonna lay down the law
Greg's gonna lay down the law
Greg's gonna lay down the law

Slipped Away (The Ballad of Lauretha Vaird)
Good morning son
It's off to school you go
Mom's gone to work you know
Mom when are you coming home
There's a bank robbery that's going on
Ooh this very morn
Mom's gone to wrok for sure
Mom when are you coming home
Officers the bank is being held
By two gunmen that don't mean well
Mom's on the job can't you tell
Mom when are you coming home
Mom when are you coming home
To see your son

Daughter don't be a policeman
Please be a school teacher instead
You're so good with the children
Mom when are you coming home
Teacher please excuse these boys from class
Their mother gone from a gunshot blast
Another cop shot down on patrol
Mom when are you coming home
Mom when are you coming home
To see your son

The gangsters killed our mother dead
All is lost from our family
They tried to save our mom in vain
She drowned in blood and she was not saved
The bank is open and the robbers jailed
And Mom won't be coming home
The way they run their world so wrong
How can us brothers get along
Mom when are you coming home

You Shall See
You've gone crazy
But I don't mind
You're gonna wish you never left my side
You shall see you should have stayed with me
When you come walkin' thru my neighborhood
You can only guess our love will be so good
You shall see, you were meant for me

You got so many plans, but I don't mind
I sure can't understand, why you left me behind
But when you realize your big mistake
You see that you was wrong but you'll be too late
Because I'll be long gone, and you will find you
Should have never left my side

She will cry, banby I don't mind
The way that you mistreated me
You were so unkind, but when you find
You'll wish you could still be mine
Now I know the reason why love had me so blind
You told me that you care
I should have read between lines
Well, now tht tables truned
You shall see
You missed your last change
To get with me

You got so many plans, but I don't mind
I sure can't understand, why you left me behind
But when you realize your big mistake
You see that you was wrong but you'll be too late
Because I'll be long gone, and you will find you
Should have never left my side

Oh, you come knockin', on my front door
You're gonnbe so sad I don't love you no more
'Cause your love is tainted
Your love is frustrated
Your love is mismated
Your love is a river, river run dry

You got so many plans, but I don't mind
I sure can't understand, why you left me behind
But when you realize your big mistake
You see that you was wrong but you'll be too late
Because I'll be long gone, and you will find you
Should have never left my side

Take You There
There's a place that I know
Where people want to go
When they wanna get out of the city
If you want to go
We can get you there in a hurry
People walkin' round enjoying the sumemr day
No working no feel the warmth of the sunshine's rays
Little children playin' down by the riverside
Underneath the bridge with the girl that you like

Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Yeah
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Yeah

We can take you there
We can take you there

Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Yeah

We can take you there
We can take you there

There's a place that I know
Where the people want to go
When they wanna get out of the city
If you want to go
I'll get you there in a hurry

People walking round and round and round

My boss called me
Today to work
You know what I dold him right
No working now, no working now, no working now
People walking round enjoying the sunshine rays
Little children playin' down by the riverside
Underneath the bridge with the girl that you like

Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Yeah
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Yeah
Willow Tree
Let me be your weeping willow tree
Surround you with my long limbs
My dear, Let me grow in the shade
In the sands by the bank of your river
Let I drink from your streams
The cool breeze fill my leaves

We will sing together
Water over the pebbles
And I'll be by your side forever

I wish I was a weeping willow tree
I wish I was a weeping willow tree

I wish I was a weeping willow tree
Sweet river caress how softly
Stir my searching roots
Shading the sun in the summers heat
Let I cool you
We have been dancing so long
In the winters freeze and the summers drought
We survive
We belong
Let us sing together
Water over the pebbles
And I'll be by your side forever

I wish I was your weeping willow tree
I wish I was a weeping willow tree
I wish I was a weeping willow tree

Let us sing together
Water over the pebbles
And I'll be by your side forever

Let us sing together
Water over the pebbles
And I'll be by your side forever

We can sing together
Water over the pebbles
And I'll be by your side forever

Let me be
Your willow tree
Your willow tree
Yeah, It's That Easy
Yo, It's a black thing
Yo, It's a white thing
If we talk this teach
we say the wrong thing
Blackness is blackkness
Whiteness is whiteness
Despite this why
we have to fight between us
Nothing to discuss
On the back of the bus
but a cold stare
Avoiding contact
oblivious to others
This is the social contract
Lack of sensitivity
Lack of sinsibility
Lack of the notion
For better compatibility
I don't fron tnothing
I am what I am
I do what I can
I nod or I shake your hand
For a greeting
That's the common and pleasing
All right, my man,
Yeah, It's that easy

Yeah, It's that easy
As easy as pie
That shit goes on forever
So make a conscious try
To improve, nothing to lose
But a free ride on
Some old news
Your pop says, your ma says
But their values could be old news
Not knowing the truth
Blaming their troubles
Some problems in the jungle
On certain races
And faces
But I say Yo sit
Just because
They're different
You didn't lose your job to
some immigrant
You lost employment
From corporate exploitment
Packing up to cash out on
Mexico's mint
Stint your vision
Stunt your growth
It ain't a land to boast about
'Cause it raised you
Left you in a daze of
The vision contrt
Sacrificing many for the
rich man's comfort

The clouding, the cover-ups,
the myths, and
The scandals
These are the ones
That destroyed America
So don't you see hysteria
I remove with incision
Pinpointing facts
Pinpoint precision
It ain't your fault
Or mine on the back of the trolley
We're just people living
Trying to find quality
Not cold and windy
Yes cool and breezy
All right, my brother

Yeah, It's that easy

Yo, you and me used to run ball in the league
We ran the championship team
The best they had seen
But so much to talk about
Now that we've grown
We've been in different scenes
Of a different act
And in the fact we sold out
To the social contract
Meaning we don't hang
And even worse than that
I heard your boys
Fought my boys
With baseball bats
And bats lead to ax
And ax lead to gun
And gun lead to mothers
Losing their sons
I live how I live
I ain't asking you to try it
The problem's too big
To fit me to buy it
The weight is too heavy
The length is too long
Slowing down the everybody get along
If the teachers were to teach
Would you listen to the Sensei
Goodnight my borther
Yeah, It's that easy

Recipe
Suck it thru a straw
My name is G so see of course,
I got my slogan not a hero like Hogan, I'm from downtown
A flower child of the truest kind, of the clear blue eye
of the fresh squeezed jive mind
time to tick, turn off the clock
tell by the shade, work the lick and then I dig the sun
the Sensei, the teach, the talk, so listen up soon
ingredients won't fit in
the cup or the teaspoon
So dig on, check your list twice, spread stuff, wassup
Yo check it again
Know what's in my pen
And you still want to front
Go ahead be that jury
But it poor see
I got more in store for ya
I got more in store for ya
I got more in store for you
I got more in store for you to lunch on
Brewin' in the night kitchen
I'll be stirrin' strings to spell ya
In the cauldron like a witch and wishin' on the stars
Of my eyes of my sight
'Cause I'm outta sight daily
And nightly I'm giggin'
So stop gigglin'
Step to the bartender
Slide us some sauce
Yeah, the specialty
The recipe, ain't gonna tell me no
I got the specialty, ain't gonna tell me no one
I got the specialty, ain't gonna tell me no one
I've got to keep on moving
I've got to keep on moving
I got one a proud pony ride
I'll ride till I die
more crunch than Nestle's
Yo who is this guy, I think I saw him on stage
Stage a show unlike any I seen before
Got cool guitars strings and all contacts to call
Hey, hey, hey come on y'all
bust some ups and some downs
bust a hoot from the ground
Louise tore me up eh yo how'd that sound
she made me walk from Chicago to the Gulf of Mexico
fished out my pond and slept with my girl so
Blues at sunrise what a way to start the day
Juannes so rough that they're like sandpaper
to smoove out the edges as I
flow like water from sink, drain, river to sea
Whip the butter
I got the recipe, ain't gonna tell me no one
I got the specialty, ain't gonna tell me no one
I got the recipe, ain't gonna tell me no one
I've gots to keep moving
I've gots to keep moving
I got chicken heads I got lanky legs
I write lyrics so sloppy it's like a different language
I got olive oil and I got spinach
I toot pipe like Popeye, smile like Grimace
Flip like the Hamburgler, 'cause it's correct
'cause I know why it all costs so much
bet on conversion
got all my words in my composition book
my honey in the nooks and crannies
I sleep in my jammies and Special Sauce is Jammin'
so much stuffs in the flavor
the recipes all in favor
say I got to keep on moving
I gots to keep on moving

200 Years
...the emperor wears no clothers
the emperor wears no clothers
the emperor wears no clothers
he don't like none of those
200 years in which I spit
that's too many years in Babylon
so you know we're leavin it
200 years in which I spit
that's too many years in Babylon
so you know we're leaving it

G. Love
What's going on
little sister born in 1976
a bicentennial of 200 years
on which I spit
Look how you're living first world
Look what you did to third world
So many rhymes in flame, so many bodies slain
Stories washed in the red stain
Bring our boys back home
God bless our troops
who execute their orders
Their living breathin gorders
Somebody's sons
Somebody's daughters
Bodies thrown in the garbage chutes
You're lying sweat behind those suits
American casualties 16
That's 16 concrete sweet dreams
What about the 4000 buried in 16 graves
that the bulldozer made
The presidaent gave
Didn't reach the middle
before they reached the last page
Their mothers crying
Torn, enraged
They didn't know oall of the statistics
Information unclear
And the truth never reached it
Enemy resistance gone 'cause we breached it
Evidence gone white 'cause we bleached it
200 years in which I spit
that's too many years in Babylon
so you know we're leaving it
200 years in which I spit
that's too many years in Babylon
so you know we're leaving it

Smiles
Let us puff today
Stay true I way
The golden bonfire
No burn the soul body
Won't walk through the secret entrance
Nor I stroll down the streets of gold
Live and breathe with one guide
One mind and one home
Come on people let's REALIZE
All the families must be unified
Come on people let's REALIZE
Babylon trickin' with dem foolish lies
Come on people let's REALIZE
All the families must be unified
Never will we cower
Never will we hide
Now we're steppin' out of Babylon
And we wavin' good bye

Making Amends
We have learned so much from
the struggles overcome
We have gained some friends
some have done us wrong
Can't you see, better make some room for me
What should we do, to live up to you

Why, why, why, why

You better live you life
What is wrong and what is right
Don't you talk too much
You got to back it up
Don't burn your candle from both ends
Now you gots to make amends
I'mma see that sunshine surely ease my mind
Birds singin' on a line
Made me feel so fine
Can't you see, better make some room for me
What should we do
To live up to you

Why, why, why, why

You better live you life
What is wrong and what is right
Don't you talk too much
You got to back it up
Don't burn your candle from both ends
Now you gots to make amends

Why

Pull The Wool
Dear friend you don't have to lie to me
When I ask you what's going on
Are you doin' right or ya doing wrong
If you do right will there not be a lifting up
You misbehave
Sin is crouching by your grave
We can begin to make amends
Fill your sails full with wind
I know you're tossed and tempest turned, but make no mistake
I'll never sleep on you Faith

Don't you pull the wool over my eyes
Don't you pull the wool over my eyes
Don't you pull the wool over my eyes
Don't you pull the wool over my eyes
Don't you pull the wool over my eyes

Now your sin, you must mask it
Your face is all riddled with guilt
Cover you like a blanket, but no warmth will it give
Now I'm sittin' here and can't believe all the measures you've taken
To cheat, lie and decieve me and all your friends
You got a lot a crazy things in life that you want to do in life, that's all right, but

Don't you pull the wool over my eyes
Don't you pull the wool over my eyes
Don't you pull the wool over my eyes
Don't you pull the wool over my eyes
Don't you pull the wool over my eyes

Lies in the nest enver ever let the birds get to rest

I can forgive, but I never can forget and lies in the nest never
Ever gave the birds no rest
Bricks built without straw were so weak they crumbled
To mud, just as your excuse with truth left you easily undone
Don't you run away

When We Meet Again
Springtime is here, and the wind from the south
Blows strong and warm to clean out your house
The sun has arisen and the lies that were told are
Driven outside with the freezing cold
I can remember a spring just like this
I was 19 yrs. old
Now the time is sorely missed
The first year that I left my mother's house
Out to make my way in this world somehow

I can't believe how the times they have changed
All the dreams that came true still seem so far away
I remember the days sittin' on the front porch with
The sun beatin' down in my neighborhood

I'd sit out all night singin' songs to the moon
Or try and get some sweet honey back to my bedroom

My friends they were few but to me they were true
All we was trying to do was just to make it thru
Always thought for the future, but we shouldn't have cared
All the best things in life we shared them right there

So to all those old friend God be with them
I wish, I wish I could see you again
In the same corner bar where it all started from
Dig your plow so deep now the stars have all gone
So wherever they shing may it be warm and bright
Out to ease my mind on this worried night
It all seemed so simple and good tidings I send
I'll never forget that one year we spent
