[Intro:]
Ya know, it’s kinda like the more things change the more they say the same. My moms, she used to always kinda tell me stuff like that, and I ain’t believe her, ya know. But I guess ya know in the long run, you kinda—as you get older—you understand

[Verse 1]
Tippy-toein’ to the kitchen, PJs on with the feets on
And when I walk its like chikka-chikka-chikka

Mommy catch me and I’m finished
But I’m on a secret mission
For some chips and I ain’t lyin’ down until I get ‘em

Twist the doorknob slow so she don’t hear the clickin’
And peak into her room to make sure she ain’t listenin’
All I see is the light reflected from the TV
“Hooked on Phonics” infomercial, so I’m guessin’ she’s asleep

Then I make my move
On my stomach crawlin’ past her room
Aw man I just knocked down the broom
Aight, stay still

I gotta be quick ‘cause if she catch me
Guaranteed my ass is gettin’ whipped

So I just ran for it, threw all caution to the wind
And once I got there she was puttin’ up the last dish
She gave me milk and cookies and kissed me on my head
Aight now take yo’ ass to bed


[Hook]
Yeah she right
I should be sleepin’
I should be sleepin’
I should be sleepin’
I should be sleepin’
I should be sleepin’
I should be sleepin’

[Verse 2]
What went on in my room: Demolition vs. Legion of Doom
Emmet’s Comics, Ninja Turtles, Super Mario, too
On my door, my Filas; and Nikes up under my bed
Mad posters on my wall: Wu-Tang and Harvey Grant
I would stay up late just to watch porn on Cinemax
With no volume and my finger on the remote to change it quick
Watch ‘Tales from the Crypt” and “Apollo” with Sinbad
And after that play Megaman X and NBA Jam
I’m reminiscin’, trippin’ off the dreams I used to have
I wake up in cold sweats over the nightmares about my dad
Moms will walk into my room and kiss me on my forehead
It’s alright, now take yo’ ass to bed

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
And now I’m all on my own
Sometimes I can't believe I’m grown
Seems like yesterday when I was fifteen-years-old

Now the world is so cold and all you got is your goals
Every night I sit at home and feel like I wanna fold
‘Cause sometimes independence really equals alone
When everything goes wrong you got nowhere to go
I toss and turn all night trying to figure out who to fight
What decisions can I make to try to make things right?
And I don’t know
I become lost in my own zone
And my thoughts are interrupted by my mother on the phone
She gives me some advice and helps me clear my head
I know you grown but take yo’ ass to bed

[Hook]
