Ludacris Lyrics

Do The Right Thang Lyrics
[Spike Lee:]
Yeah yeah yeah Hip-Hop nation
This is Spizzike Lee
Been sleepin for to long
Wake up. Wake up. Wake uuup!

[Ludacris:]
I see the sunshine gazin' through the window pane
Blazin like endow flame
It's time to WAKE UP
Come to yo senses mane
Snow is all around you but you don't play Winter games
Cartridges surround you but you ain't playin Nintendo games
Load em up then fill em up to the top before you COCK ya name
Tryna get from the bottom to the top like the stock exchange
Shower sh*t and shave and hit the corner for a block exchange
Amazin what my people'll do for some pocket change
But maybe this ain't the life that cha chose
This is the life where you stay strapped and pack a knife or end up with a blooded nose
Street survival or survival of da streets
And only da strong survive it's no survival foe da weak
Catch a sneak peek of death if you ain't on ya
P & q's
They carry banana clips and niggas'll peel ya for ya shoes
It's the blues but not on Hill Street
Ehh you can call it kill or be killed street
Lost a pint of blood let it spill street
Stop and wake uuuuuup
Wake uuuuuuup

[Chorus:]
They say my folk'll do whatever for da fortune and da fame
And it'll take a fortune to get rid of da pain but I'm sayin
Use ya brain homie do da right thang
Let me talk to em
Use ya brain homie do da right thang
You say da only family that cha got is in da game
And da only way to make it is by sellin cocaine but I'm sayin
Use ya brain Homie do da right thang
Let me talk to em
Use ya brain homie do da right thang

[Common:]
I been in dis ere since we were drinkin beers
Years we spent togetha
Use to break up get togetha
Split a fight everynight
Gettin chedda movin white
I feigned so we had to do it right like Spike
Holdin 40's gettin green on acres
These broads were our mules
That's when we used to serve in front of Caldwell School
Fuel for cars and jewels
Chains and tools
It was organized crime but we remained confused
Mom in da pew singin Lord protect em
You might not a-gree with our views but you had to respect em
Diamonds in da rough but what we we were reflectin
A system that's abrupt
The streets in opression
One mornin in the mirror
I seen my reflection a young man with good spirit but heated direction
I guess my man's death
Was my resurrection cause now I hear em sayin from Heaven
Wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up(ahhhhhh)

[Chorus:]
[Ludacris:]
They say my folk'll do whatever for da fortune and da fame
And it'll take a fortune to get rid of da pain but I'm sayin
[Common:] Use ya brain homie do da right thang
[Ludacris:] Let me talk to em
[Common:] Use ya brain homie do da right thang
[Ludacris:]
You say da only family that cha got is in da game
And da only way to make it is by sellin cocaine but I'm sayin
[Common:] Use ya brain Homie do da right thang
[Ludacris:] Let me talk to em
[Common:] Use ya brain homie do da right thang

[Ludacris:]
I woke up this mornin and got a call
My patna said he had news about a girl named Baby Doll
She got foe baby daddy's foe kids by foe different men
And she just found she's pregnant
I said no not again
Man when she gonna learn she don't wanna spend her life in court
Lookin foe back payments and fightin for dat child support
Chasin checks chasin a ounce of respect chasin paper
Chasin entertainers or rappers and ball players
Not carin about a condom I say help her Lord please
Fore she stuck with more babies or ends up fightin some disease
You know dat chu a mama and mama's we can't lose ya
Treat yaself better you carry seeds to da future
And da future looks dim if we don't get ourselves togetha
We gotta sacrifice
Not do whateva for da chedda
So make the right decision till ya ready to give birth
And know you da most precious gift we have on dis Earth
Baby stop and
Wake uuuuup
Wake uuuuup

[Chorus:]
They say my folk'll do whatever for da fortune and da fame
And it'll take a fortune to get rid of da pain but I'm sayin
Use ya brain baby do da right thang
Let me talk to em
Use ya brain homie do da right thang
You say you want a family but it's hard with out a main
And da only way to make it is to get em foe his change
But I'm sayin
Use ya brain baby do da right thang
Let me talk to em
Use ya brain baby do da right thang

[Spike Lee:]
Wake up
Wake up
It's a new day
Come on brothas wake up
Come on sistas wake up
ATL wake up wake up baby
Chi-Town wake up wake up wake up
Brooklyn's in da house
Wake up Brooklyn
Ludacris, Common Sense, and me Spike lee

[Ludacris:]
All ways do da right thang
I got it
I'm gone [gradually fades]
