2: Getting through LA has been a breeze. Barely trying and I get higher than a B. I use this class to catch up on my Z’s, And use the books to inspire my dreams. Books can take you to magical lands, Use them to soar farther than Peter Pan. | LA Poem
3: Self-Respect | Sometimes I ball-hog, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I’ll pass, sometimes I won’t. Depend on my shot, I might even swish. I’m so great; I can ball with the Knicks. I’m not (the average) point guard. And I ain’t even trying that hard.
4: But I learned from my mistakes, Because I am one of the greats. I’m not in just for fame. My worth is not determined by a single game. No matter what the haters holler, I will always be the best baller. | Self-Respect (Cont.)
5: My Mother's Kitchen | I told her, “You should have listened” Don’t let my sister into the kitchen. She’ll forget and let the food burn. You’ll be sorry and put the ashes in an urn. In the oven was the turkey But now it’s all burnt, black, and murky. The place where the stove was is now empty. High in the sky. That’s where it flew. No dinner for me. How about you? What she eats is a vegan’s meal.
6: My Mother's Kitchen (Cont.)
7: The turkey meat isn’t even real. Most of the time, she’ll have cabbage; Unless it’s chicken, then she’s a savage. Thanksgiving and Christmas, don’t get me started. The amount of food made, it’s just retarded. She’ll eat anything that’ll fit in her hand, Well, anything except for green eggs and ham. Disaster strikes when you’re not looking, You start running if she starts cooking, And that’s how it is with her in the kitchen.
8: GSMST Tribute
9: GSMST is one of the best. It really puts you to the test. But you’ll be lucky to get any rest. This school could make you into a mess. 4 different floors, adding 1 more. Getting to classes is tough to endure. Good thing is it’ll get you in shape. You can play sports, or even lift weights. The workload is the toughest of all. Don’t try hard; your grades will fall. The ones who help are your friends, They’ll be there till the very end.
10: Eat It Lyrics
11: How come you're always such a fussy young man? Don't want no Captain Crunch, don't want no Raisin Bran Well, don't you know that other kids are starving in Japan So eat it, just eat it (prrr) Don't wanna argue, I don't wanna debate Don't want to hear about what kind of food you hate ooh You won't get no dessert 'till you clean off your plate So eat it, don't you tell me you're full Just eat it, eat it , eat it Get yourself an egg and beat it Have some more chicken, have some more pie It doesn't matter , it's broiled or fried Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it, ooh Your table manners are a cryin' young shame You're playin' with your food like it's some kind of game
12: Now, if you starve to death, you'll just have yourself to blame So eat it, just eat it (prr)(burp) You better listen, better do what you're told ooh You haven't even touched your tuna casserole ooh You better chow down or it's gonna get cold So eat it I don't care if you're full Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it Open up your mouth and feed it Have some more yogurt, have some more spam It doesn't matter if it's fresh or canned Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it Don't you make me repeat it Have a banana, have a whole bunch
13: It doesn't matter what you have for lunch Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it Eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it (hoh hoh hoh hoh hoh) Eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it If it's gettin' cold, reheat it Have a big dinner, have a light snack If you don't like it you can't send it back Just eat it, eat it, (woohoo) eat it, eat it Get yourself an egg and beat it (oh lord) Have some more chicken,(woohoo) have some more pie (woohoo) It doesn't matter , it's broiled or fried Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it Don't you make me repeat it (oh no) Have a banana,(woohoo) have a whole bunch It doesn't matter what you had for lunch Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it
