lyrics

(intro)
my favorite memories?/
where do i even begin/
well i guess the beginning is as good a place as any/
ya feel me?/
yeah/
way back when/
where this all begins/
yo/
i'd like y'all to close your eyes for a minute/
come with me on a lil' journey/
it starts like this/

(verse 1)
roll up a phat one pass it around/
bump up the beat be one with the sound/
lean back lay back look up at the sun/
yeah/
this is what we used to do for fun/
on 'em sun blindin' springtime afternoons/
rollin' 'round town spittin' with nothin' to prove/
hopped in the ride took off for the bay/
flowin' dope rhymes all of the way/
every day a new adventure we had plenty to take/
101 vibe ridin' as the melodies blazed/
of course without a doubt we had plenty to say/
jus' look around wont’cha? don't be afraid/
the pretty blonde meetin' your gaze her hair in a braid?/
or that man with a cigarette pipe and his fade?/
what they say?/
well jus' look close in they eyes/
close your eyes and you can see 'em jus' as close as i/

(hook)
high in the ride with the windows down/
rollin' 'round town livin' life lovin' the sounds/
like this (echo)/
like this (echo)/

(verse 2)
now she took her seat legs crossed flashed a hint of her thigh/
i had to ask her sittin' there "how ya get so fly?"/
she laughed looked me over said “i was her guy”/
like that i was almost taken aback/
'til i realized she was lookin' for love back/
like that we was two found again/
best friends though we didn't really know it then/
'til the first place that you really notice in kicked in/
and i was high on cloud nine/
and ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen and five/
it was a sign really jus' a feelin' inside/
that grew like a vine from the heart to the spine/
and not a day goes by i don't look to the sky/
sayin' "thank you God for the love of my life"/
oh yeah it's A Wonderful Life/
tho with a lil' mo' color mixed with the black and the white now/

(hook)

(verse 3)
now look in to the future what do you see?/
i see me doin' everything i used to be/
'cept for bullsh*t free and with some new beliefs/
straight off that classic tip though i still do speak/
i hit the mic in the night rip the grind in the day/
give up what i can to get a little back in this play/
on and off the stage i rep hard what i spray/
take charge of my fate and make what i make/
i stay away from ones who hate expose those fake/
a lil' bit of love i find is all that it takes/
to create a space so great where all can relate/
pause the beat squash the beef then take it away/
hit the leaf if you feelin' so inclined to recline/
do what you gotta do to keep up on your peace of mind/
if that a piece of mine? then lemme piece it out/
figure out what you about then follow that route/
no matter what you gotta do it up as you feel/
hence the reason why i'm doing what i do when i spiel/
and if it's real? then you got more than you need/
to full power on ahead with all of your steam/
and the more you puttin' in it? the more you receive/
like the same way you waterin' life outta your seed/
first believe, then work hard and you can achieve/
yeah/
each and every single one of your dreams/

(hook x2)

(outro)
way back when/
my favorite memories??/
hehehe/
