we grew up here
saw the pavement changed
lost a cousin under the tires of a fast turning car
saw more than one father disappear into other houses
in other blocks
other boros

my uncle taught him how to open the hydrant when he was still too young to control it
but I'm glad he can do it now
make it look so easy
gives us a reason to all be together here

keeping cool
moms bitching
he's the only sexy one in the family
but I've had his brother a few times already

and her
she don't know what it's like...
I can't wait to grow up and get out of here
get with a man who can buy a house over in Jersey
somewhere nice
maybe Florida
I can't wait
when I turn 14 I'monna see if I can live with my tio
but today
it's good to keep cool
watching the kids playing

(what do I know...
I live around these people and can't seem to understand them at all)
