Laugh Now, Cry Later - Ice Cube

[Ice Cube]
Uh-huh, understand this
I don't give a f_ck about what y'all talkin about
I ain't tryin to hear none of that sh_t
N_gga I'ma do what I wanna do
When I wanna do it, how I wanna do it
And you better hope I don't do it to you
Now, I don't care what momma got to say
I don't care what grandmomma got to say
N_gga I'm grown
Let me tell you a lil' somethin about me

I was born not to give a f_ck, wanna drink, get your cup
Turn it up, throw it up, take the world, blow it up
Somebody slow it up, roll it up, smoke it up
My own momma can't keep me from loc'n up
One ear out the other, one man out to smother
The neighborhood, that left me here without my brother
F_ck you undercovers and you dirty motherf_ckers
In the hood, that still f_ck without rubbers
Club hop, bar hop, car shop, nail shop
To the mall, spend it all, why the hell not
What bills, what rent, don't know what's spent
Why you care, do you work for the government?

F_ck it homey, I'ma laugh now and cry later
Get your paper we can laugh now and cry later
All you players you can laugh now and cry later
Investigators let you laugh now and cry later

[Ice Cube]
See I'm a product of this urban decay
A n_gga dyin for tomorrow, but live for today
A n_gga lie steal and borrow, and cheating's okay
Don't you tell these motherf_ckers that my name is O'Shea
Cause I'ma f_ck up my baby's credit, let him regret it
7 months old he's already got a jail record
I'm the one to blame, put it in my momma name
She's a drama queen, but I got the bling bling
I need the watch and the bracelet and the earrings
I need you all to show up at my hearings
Tell the judge I'm a nice n_gga, good n_gga
And I'ma play the sad face when he look n_gga


[Interlude: repeat 2X]
"The number you are calling was lost, and cannot be called back"
"Your last call return service"

[Ice Cube]
It's f_cked up, that y'all won't accept my calls
Tell momma, at least she can send some drawers
These walls, make y'all forget about me
I'm comin home, in 2033
But that's irrelevant, did you get the mail I sent
What I tell a b_tch, you better stay celibate
She start lyin to me, tell me who she ain't f_ckin
Never tell me that my homeboys ain't nothin
Bun in the oven, it belong to my cousin
Got the nerve, to tell me that you really love me
(What?) I'ma kill her ass when a n_gga make parole
Hit her with my cane, cause a n_gga gray and old


[Outro: Ice Cube]
Man, it ain't right man
Y'know y'all ain't doin me right man
A n_gga tryin to do right man
Y'know I'm tryin to change my life man, y'know?
I done found the Lord while I'm in here, y'know?
I I'm tryin to do right now, I mean
Y'know I'm sorry for everythang
That I, I I mean y'know
That's f_cked up how y'all doin me man
Y'all n_ggaz could at least send me somethin

"Alright, first four guys, let's go... lock it up"
