I Gotcha' Back Song Lyrics

 
GZA / Genius
Smokin Aces Soundtrack - Movie, 2007
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
I Gotcha' Back I gotcha back, but you best to watch your front
Cause its the niggaz that front, they be pullin stunts
I gotcha back, but you best to watch your front
Cause its the niggaz who front (they be pullin stunts)

I was always taught my dos and donts
For dos I did, and for donts, I said I wont
Im from brooklyn, a place where stars are born
Streets are shot up, apartment buildings are torn
And ripped up, stripped up, shacked up and backed up
From fiends, cause the bosses on the scene, they got it cracked up
Kids are slingin in my lobby
Little steve and bobby
Gettin paid but its a life-threatening hobby
Yeah, they still play hide and seek
The fiends seek for the crack, and they hide and let the cops peep
Grown folks say they should be out on their own
Before the gangs come and blow up their moms home
Because they lifestyle is hectic, so f**kin hectic
Blaow! blaow! blaow! bullets are ejected
My lifestyle was so far from well
Coulda wrote a book with a title age 12 and goin through hell
Then I realized the plan
Im trapped in a deadly video game, with just one man
So I dont only watch my back, I watch my front
Cause its the niggaz who front, they be pullin stunts
Back on the ave of lavonia and bristol with a pistol
Stickin up pamela and crystal
You know your town is dangerous when you see the strangest
Kid come home from doin the bid and nuthin changes
What is the meaning of crime (what? )
Is it criminals robbin innocent motherf**kers everytime?
Little shorties take walks to the schoolyard
Tryin to solve the puzzles to why is life so hard
Then as soon as they reached the playground, blaow!
Shots ring off and now one of them lay down
Its so hard to escape the gunfire
I wish I could rule it out like an umpire
But its an everlasting game, and it never cease to exist
Only the players change, so...



Chorus 3x

Rza - I gotcha back (8x)
I gotcha back so you best to watch your front
Cause its the niggaz who front, that be pullin stunts
I gotcha back but you best to watch your front
Its the niggaz who front, that be pullin stunts

Outro: (lp version only)

*old man*
Your, tech, nique, is, mag-ni-ficent
When cut across the neck
A sound like wailing winter winds is heard, they say
Id always hoped to cut someone like that someday
To hear that sound
But to have it happen to my own neck is... ridiculous
*man gasps for air*
