[Intro]
Shouts out to all my hoods across the A gettin it in
My Eastside niggas, my Westside niggas
Big shouts to the Northside ("DJ Spinz, fuck nigga!")

[Hook]
I could go on and on for days and days and song for song yeah
{"Let me tell you all about it"}
I could go on and on for days and days and song for song yeah
{"Let me tell you all about it"}
It's 'bout that Eastside tale, yeah I can tell you 'bout that Eastside tale
{"Let me tell you all about it"}
It's 'bout that Eastside tale, let me tell you 'bout another Eastside tale
{"Let me tell you all about it"}

[Interlude]
("M... L... K!!")
Let me say again! You'll never know that no matter what song
What the concept is or whatever, I'm tryin to keep it 100
So I may not be givin you the story but the story got the truth in it
You feel me? ("SCREAM!!")

[B.o.B]
Oh yeah, believe it, I can tell many secrets
But the mo' I talk about them that's just the mo' that you see 'em
Yup - I'm a believer, not sayin I'm religious
But I see somethin wrong with how we livin in my city
Why everybody from Decatur wanna be a sanger?
Or be an entertainer, or to be rich and famous?
You see us on TV, you sit for hours and you stare
Not sayin that we Gods, but that's what they try to make us

[Hook]

[Interlude]
And like I said - even though I'm tryin to get to paid
I ain't fin' to do what they want me to do dawg
Realer than that I'm from Decatur
Decatur's a city that's gon' be on yo' mind soon as you think about it

[B.o.B]
Hell yeah I'm from the Eastside
Ain't sayin it just to get the streets behind me
Ain't like slum, but I know where I'm from
So I spit it for the slums and the street society
It's yo' block that I'm beatin' down
So that real shit's what I'm speakin 'bout
Now I can probably, tell you a lie
To tell the stories about people's problems
But everything that I got to say is
Contagious like {?}
Don't play ball but I'm Atlanta's Bravest
So if I'm fake then it's not today
Now I can sit up here and lie up in my rhyme
And tell you everything is fine but y'all ain't blind - nah~!

[Hook]
