[Verse 1: Phife Dawg]
Went to Carvel to get a milk shake
This honey ripped me off for all my loot cakes
The car oh yeah there's money in my jacket
Somebody broke into my ride and cold macked it

Yo Tip I tell you man the devil's tryin it
But I'm goin to stay strong cause I ain't buyin it

Tonight I'm taking Sherry out, I don't have jack to wear
You know I gots to look dipped in the fresh new gear

Cool I found something so I ironed it
I then got caught up on the phone, oh shit, I'm frying it

Will someone tell me what did I do to deserve this?
I think I'll, pull out my suit for Sunday service

My little brother wants Barney, cool, I'm gettin it
Took him down to Kay-Bee, they ain't sellin it
Here we go with the crying, yo he's throwing fits
My blood pressure's blowing up, I can't take the shit
Finally got what he wanted, now he's good to go

Again the ride was smashed, where's my radio?
One time, the car was in the shop I had to borrow see...
They had no mercy on the car they almost killed me

Where the hell can Nicki be? I'm gonna smack her up
I got the tickets for the Knicks and she cold stood me up

I need to hit a honey off, Jarobi pass the phone
Pulled out my book of hoes, oh yo, Sheila's home
Steady smiling like a mother yo I'm read' to bone
Went down on hon, she's in the red zone

Stressed out more than anyone could ever be
Forever tryin to clear the samples for my new LP

Everybody knows I go to Georgia often
Got on the flight and I ended up in Boston

With all these trials and tribulations, yo, I've been affected
And to top it off, Starks got ejected

[Hook: Phife Dawg]
Problems, problems, problems, woe is me I'm having
Problems, problems, problems..


[Verse 2: Phife Dawg]
Just last week my girl was stressin me
Now her best friend be undressing me
Well I was loving her by the moon ray
Now I'm tricking on her like Kinte' (c'mon)

Bought a bag of izm from the smoke shop
Walking towards the car, here come the damn cops
Now I'm station bound for the Thai sticks
I bought it for my man, I don't believe this shit

Coach sat me down from the ball team
Cause I was breaking niggas on the inseams

Some niggas cross town was trying to stick me
All I had was shorts, a dollar fifty

Picked up this girl in the hooptie
Just because I rhyme she tried to soup me
Pay for this, pay for that, loot for nails and hair

Who the hell you think I am, Mr. Belvedere?
Go and get a bloody job, then can we look cute
Even if you give me boots, you'll never see my loot

She wasn't even all of that just another hooker
So I turned that ass away, quick like Chuckii Booker

Sometimes you got put the hoes in their friggin' place
Just move from in front me with your botty face!


[Hook: Phife Dawg]
Problems, problems, problems, Lord knows I'm havin
Problems, problems, problems, Jesus Christ I'm havin
Problems, problems, problems, pray for me I'm havin
Problems, problems, problems..


Yeah
Yeah..
Just lay down your burdens by the riverside
Hah, and you'll be alright, knowhatI'msayin?

Love and peace from Phife for '93, knahmsayin?
