Chester P – The City Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Living in the city, the whole city
(Ey, blud!)
Too gritty, it's gritty
Little girls wanna push up the tity, the whole tity
Little picky-head-yutes on road are so lippy
Babylon run the town, the whole city, no doubt
Handcuffs, stamped out, no pity
The kiddies
Wanna be like Fiddy and Biggie and 2Pac
Little villains, no feelings, they're stealing and killing
Stick cats like Blu Tac
Listen, in the city we're living; full of sinning
And I'm bringing the truth back
(?) myself
On top of the game like roof racks
Sitting in a cell and I dwell on the way life is
Thinking to myself, 'One day I'll get righteous.'
City life, hyper-crime and drug prices rises
Masterminds and thug guys
Sick, a lot of cats pick a lock
Lick a shot again
Picking up a box 'til it drops on the lot of them
Busy in the city, the whole city, and getting hot again
Kiddies in the blocks, sells rocks to get a lot of (?)

[Chorus]
(The city!)
Time goes by without living
(The city!)
Life and death are too gritty
(In the city!)
Grimy times and no pity
(Living in the city, the city, the whole city!)
(In the city!)
Time goes by without living
(The city!)
Life and death are too gritty
(In the city!)
Grimy times and no pity
(Living in the city, the city, the whole city!)

[Verse 2]
(Yuh, yuh!)
Living in the city of darkness
Next step, visting my dearly departed
Restless, kids got skeng and peng
And want set 'cause them (?) pretend they're friends

And want extras
Dirty in the grizzle I pickle a little figure with a riddle to (?) the main (?)
That's me
Never could I work in a factory
Or sit up in an office so the government tax me
(f*ck them!)
I would be the dinner to a killer gorilla who's getting iller scrilla to (?)
Mad dust like he's Windy the Miller, for realer!
Still I'm sitting the grip of the man in the mirror
And it's badder than ever
The blacker the weather
Bagging up whatever's adding up clever
(And sometimes!)
Life's like an untrained police dog
Living in the city, the city that don't sleep, blud

[Chorus]
(The city!)
Time goes by without living
(The city!)
Life and death are too gritty
(In the city!)
Grimy times and no pity
(Living in the city, the city, the whole city!)
(In the city!)
Time goes by without living
(The city!)
Life and death are too gritty
(In the city!)
Grimy times and no pity
(Living in the city, the city, the whole city!)

(The city!)
Time goes by without living
(The city!)
Life and death are too gritty
(In the city!)
Grimy times and no pity
(Living in the city, the city, the whole city!)
(In the city!)
Time goes by without living
(The city!)
Life and death are too gritty
(In the city!)
Grimy times and no pity
(Living in the city, the city, the whole city!)
[Outro]
(In the city, in the city…
In the city, in the city…)
