Raekwon – Restaurant (Skit) Lyrics
So you got the message?
Let me get a water
You want coffee?
Did I ask for a fuckin' coffee man? I asked for water man
Glad you could make it, Rae
We need to talk
Come on my time is, my time is money man, get to the point
Alright, listen. I know it's a lot goin' on in the streets and, uh, the streets it talkin' about you boy
Mmm, they sayin' nice things?
Ohh, actually it's not nice at all. Uhh, you gotta be cool for a little while, gotta be cool
Gotta be cool
Yeah, you gotta be cool. And, uh, your boys? Tell them to be cool witchu
Yeah, because uh, Rae, I got a job to do Rae and, uh, if it comes down to it, don't think for one second I won't take you out of here, man
And why would you do that?
I got a job to do
So you gon' take me down?
Where you gotta go, Rae? You gotta, you gotta be easy guy
So, um, so since I know that you gon' take me down, well you know that it's a, um. It's a flip coin to that situation because if my back is against the wall, and you're tryin' to take me down and I'm forced to do what I gotta do to protect myself. And at the end of the day I will come out victorious, so, it's just gonna be a standoff
