roots – lazy afternoon lyrics



it’s a lazy afternoon
(summertime, as i recline, lay back and relax, let the sun shine)

verse 1

(black thought)

consider this a message to my mellow in the front seat
of the jeep pumpin’ beats for your rump
in the summertime i’m risin’ to the shine at 12: 20
ghetto streets are sunny, n-gg-s is gettin’ money
it’s mad hot, and what i got to do i’m not sure of
i call up maura, this dip i know from bora bora
was rappin’ for a second about what i reckoned that i

was doin’ at six, she was invitin’ me to the flicks
that i’m with, blew a kiss now i’m in the shower
i meant the bath in which i simmer for half an hour
then got drier, put on attire to inspire

hit my dresser for numbers of women that i admire
laid around and lounged ’til around two
then i got up and ate, drank a brew and caught a page from the crew
sayin’ “where ya at? later, meet us up at the plat
bring a sack, ayo it’s sat-rday, it’s gonna be fat”
now it’s 3: 37 and i still ain’t left the rest
electric relaxation from a tribe called quest
with the boom, tokin’, smokin’, coolin’ out
as i parlay in my room ’cause it’s a lazy afternoon

other verses as verse 1, with the following variations:

verse 2: “this dip i knew from bora bora”
“’cause it’s a lazy aaaaaahh!” (dental style:-)

verse 3: ” i’m in the shower”
“a page from my crew”
“bring a sack, n-gg-, it’s sat-rday”
