Ice Cube – Doing Dumb Shit (Death Certificate 25Th Anniversary Edition Album)

But before they can grow up they on the front page
Looking for any bitch I could lie to
Even though the hoe worked me
Then the shit got strange money

Thirteen, that’s how old I was
Going up to the high school
Chewing on Good and Plenties
Until I got my ass whipped
By doing that I had a lot of pull G
To the women in college
And mastered the life-long art of dragging
And I was looking at any butt and ass
And I got real good
Cause I was still young doing dumb shit
That it’s wrong throwing rocks at the RTD
Me and my homies started cutting class
I jumped up got dressed and start pushing
I was stealing candy out the corner market
When I was young I used to hang with the seventh graders
Better yet knocking on your door and run
Even though I was still shooting blanks
Walking with the schoolhouse bully
Smoked my first joint and got really buzzed
Hung out with the OG’s and got some street knowledge

You hear me calling you?
Fucking with the girls in the fourth grade
Tell em I was older than I really was
Cussing like a sailor at recess
Then I said fuck the dumb shit
And then I put the rubber on the wrong way
Fucking at a real fast rate
Cheating on tests making a mess
Cause you’ll catch me running out the little girls’ bathroom
As soon as the dark hit
At 17 got my first Volkswagon
Got my gamble on at lunch pitching pennies
Playing hide-and-go-get-it for a little stank
Little bad motherfucker playing Space Invaders
Either feeling on they butts or pulling on they braids
That’s what a mack’s made of
Now I look at all the kids in the neighborhood
I still knocked the boots from here to Albuquerque
Breaking in cars and all that
If things continued
Yo I was living like the class clown
Going through a stage
O’Shea! O’Shea!
Overexcited and fucking like a jackrabbit
And they mommas is having a fit
Trying to be baby macks

When my jimmy started getting a little peach fuzz
Doing shit that I did seven years back
Pulling all the hokes, making all the jokes man
But when I got my first piece of pussy I fell in love
But I still gotta have it
A virgin but I still knew how to lay pipe
Get your ass in here boy
It must a been a half moon
Cause I thought the bitch broke my dick
Goddamn I was hot
Popping out your window with a BB gun
Cause Pops’ll fuck me up quick
Hard as a rock the long way
Cause I was ten years old, doing dumb shit
When you young it’s hard to see
Til they said that I might not graduate
I started shaking and jimmy felt funny
Then the nut came gushing
Hitting punk fools with a baseball bat
So I start rapping about shit I been through
Cause they died young doing dumb shi
