American Dreamin'


American Gangster

Dreamed of you this morning
Then came the dawn,
And I thought you were here with me
If you could only see
How much I love you
That's all, that's all, that's all baby
Oh no, I'll never give up on you
(I never felt that before)
But there's always...
That's all that's all

This is the shit you dream about
With the homie steamin' out
Back, back, backing them Beemer's out
Seems as our plans to get a grant
Then go off to college, didn't pan or even out
We need it now
we need a town
We need a place to pitch
We need a mound
For now, I'm just a lazy boy
Big dreaming in my La-Z-Boy
In the clouds of smoke
Been playin' this Marvin
Mama forgive me
Should be thinkin' 'bout Harvard
But that's too far away
Niggas are starving
Ain't nothin' wrong with aim
Just gotta change the target
I got dreams of baggin' snid-dow the size of pillows
I see pies every time my eyes clid-dose
I see rides, sixes, I gotta get those
Life's a bitch, I hope to not make her a widow

Oh no, I'll never give up on you
(Never felt that before)
It's just American dreamin'
But there's always...
That's all, that's all

Now see, the life's right there
And it seems right there
It's not quite near
And its not like we're professionals
Movin' the decimals
Know where to cop? Nah
Got a connect? No
Who under heaven knows how to be successful?
Need a personal Jesus, I'm in Depeche Mode
They say its celestial
It's all in the stars
Like Tony Caruso
How you played the card
Y'all ain't fucking with me

The ironies are
Had all coast better before he was boss
Now lets start
On your mark
Get set, lets go
Get out the car
Going in circles
It's a vicious cycle
This is a crash course
This ain't high school
Wake up, Muttley
You're dreamin' again
Your own reality show
The season begins

Oh no, I'll never give up on you
(I never felt that before)
Its just American dreamin'
But there's always...
That's all that's all...

Step One in this process,
scramble up in your projects
And head to the heights where big coke is processed
You gotta convince 'em that you not from the Precinct
Please speak slow
Cause he don't speakey no English
If he takes a liking after a couple of trips
If your money is straight
He's gon' give you consignment
You're now in a game where only time can tell
Survive the droughts
I wish you well
Survive the droughts?
I wish you well?
How sick am I?
I wish you health
I wish you wheels
I wish you wealth
I wish you insight so you could see for yourself
You could see the signs,
when the jackets is schemin'
And the cops is comin'
You could read they mind
You could see from behind
You could redefine
The game as we know it
One dream at a time
I'm American dreamin'

Oh no, I'll never give up on you
I never felt that before
Its just American dreamin'
But there's always...
That's all that's all...
American' Dreamin
