R. Kelly – Trapped in the Closet Chapter 14 Lyrics
Time goes by (it's 30 minutes later)
Time goes by (45 minutes later)
Time goes by (and now one hour later...)
A car pulls up to a restaurant; the door opens as someone gets out
First thing you see is some heels and a dress black shades on scarf around her head and mouth
Who could it be, why are they here up the stairs there going
Through the door down the aisle like she's walking in slow motion
Checking out the place as she walks looking real cool
Peeping out through her glasses before she sits in the booth
She goes in her purse throws a cigarette out, put it in her mouth he lights it
Then she blows smoke, pause for a minutes and says "what the hell happened? "
"First of all woman keep your voice down I ain't try'na get loud up in here
Second of all how was I to know that'cha husband, was a fucking queer"
"Shh" (clears throat) The waitress walks by
She says "I'll be with y'all in a minute"
"Now we made a deal the plan was for me to come home with you, girl I did my part
So don't you go asking me what the hell happened when I didn't want to do this shit from the start"
And then she says "yeah right, you didn't want to do this shit but'cha ass got paid
And then she says "Sylvester" I said "hold up bitch are you crazy, don't be saying my name"
She said "whatever, how come you did tell me you was married to Gwen? "
"First of all between the fake wigs and fake names how the hell am I suppose to know that Gwen is yo friend, bitch I'm a-"
"Shh, here comes the waitress again"
"Sorry I kept y'all waiting, childish place is busy
It's always crowded about this time can I start y'all off with sumthing to drink? "
I said "I'll just have a coffee with two sugars light on the cream"
And she said "Vodka straight up, hell, shit I need a drink"
Then the waitress said "girl I heard that I'll be right back with your drinks"
And then she walks away, I look back at her and says "she look familiar too me"
And she says "what? " I say "nothing, it's just a thought
Anyway girl I thought the plan was for me to be in that house with'chu and get caught"
She says "It was" I said "what how? " She say "I changed my mind"
I blew smoke then I blew my cigar out said "I'm out this motherfucker cause you wasting my time"
She says "wait don't go" "well [?] dammit, talk to me"
She says "you wouldn't understand"
"Try me" (Cathy sobs) "Cathy" "Yes? " "Try me"
She blows her nose and says "well it all started one night when I was sitting in the living room
And sounds like I can hear somebody in the bedroom moaning and groaning
And I knew it wasn't me, so my curiosity
Led me to believe that he was cheating on me"
"Well how come you just didn't ask him give him the benefit of the doubt? "
"Because a woman knows, a woman just knows what some shit is foul"
And then I said "calm down, here comes the waitress"
"Ooh like I said it's busy around this time, but thank y'all for being patient
Say can I get y'all anything else? " I said "no that'll be all"
Then Cathy says "Sylvester" he says "hold on", cause he's getting another phone call
It's Tawn saying "everything aight? " Then Sylvester says "we working it out"
Then Tawn says "well call me if you need me dawg you know I'm holding you down" and I said "no doubt"
I hang up then Cathy says "well anyway let me get back to telling you what went wrong
Where was I, oh yeah the day I heard him arguing on the phone"
Now the story goes on and on and she telling him everything that happened
While Tawn's outside in the car, radio on bopping his head just rapping
Sylvester said, "Girl are you saying he was having sex with another man on the phone? "
She says "yes" I say "I can't talk about this" she says "why? " say "cause this shit is getting uncomfortable"
Now back to Tawn he turns the radio down cause he gets a call
He says "yeah whattup? " and the voice says "Yo T I got that information on Tina" he says "talk to me dawg"
"Well the word out on the street is the bitch is stop whoring, doing hair out her momma's basement and got a job, hahaha
"Haha is right the day that bitch stop horring is the day they stop selling dops" (haha) "Ya feel me Joe? " (word)
"Where the bitch work at a candy sto'? "
"Nah, the job that she got suppose to be legit, I heard ya girl off on some ole waitress shit"
"Yeah, waitress where? " "Hold on I'm waiting on my people to hit me, Roxanne and aunty on the place"
"You shittin' me, where this place at? " He says "Hold up, I'm getting a phone call"
Now meanwhile Sylvester's asking Cathy "Well why you still love him? "
Then Cathy says "Cause when I saw Chuck I just couldn't lose him to him"
And then the waitress comes again but this time she brings the bill
I last her a fifty says keep the change she says "damn thanks, shit y'all keep it real"
Now meanwhile outside in the car, Tawn's getting impatient his homie comes back to the phone
Tawn says "do I look like N vogue? " He says "why? " he says "nigga cause the way you got me holding on"
"I got'cha dawg, I got where the bitch work live information and all"
"Yeah nigga I'm listening" "well nigga first of all, you gotta keep me down cause I went through a lot of crazy shit to find her"
"Yeah whatever I got'chu"
"I'm dealing with some nigga in the jet free minders, round the corner is a place called Shay Shay's Diner
"Nigga you forget I just did 3 years, I need the exact address to where this place is"
"My bad you right kid, 9501 that's right off Holston"
Pause it right there, now shoot back into the restaurant real quick
Sylvester looks up at the waitress and says "excuse me but it seems like I know ya"
And at the same time Tawn's in the car going "man this address sounds familiar"
Meanwhile in the restaurant the waitress blows her bubble and says "where you know me from? "
Tawn's homie gives him the name of the place again he looks up at the sign and says "what the fuck? "
Now meanwhile back in the restaurant Cathy's nudging me under the table going "Sylvester"
Then Sylvester looks at the name tag on the shirt and notices that shit says "TINA"
Then, the waitress starts backing up with this confused look on her face
While Tawn's outside on the phone telling his homie "man I'm right outside of the fucking place"
Then Sylvester says "hold up, I just wanna talk to you for a minute"
Then she starts screaming Roxanne's name real loud, this bitch comes running from the back with a skillet
Then Tina breaks her beer bottle on the table and says "nigga I will cut you with this glass"
Cathy walks by me going out the door saying "not try'na get loud in here my ass"
Tina starts wobbing around Sylvester real slow saying "we take Tae-bo classes"
Then Tawn runs up in the place and says "I will kill both of y'all knucklehead asses"
