Finest Songs and Best Videos Evah
O.K. This, too, is OLD, but I'm thinkin' this may be one of the finest songs and best videos evah. Check it:
"nothin's ever promised tomorrow today," "...like Tim its a 'Hard-a-way." "Before you ask me to get a job today,
can i at least get a raise on a minimum wage?" "And I know the government administered AIDS..." what the f\/&k is he at?! How'd he get to rhyming "cop car" and "cop car"?! and I think he rhymed cigarette with cigarette?!
...I mean language it IS a virus? I sith you not. There is somethin' jus' two smart about all this. But that's an OLD observation. Why'd they bury this Michel Gondry vid, tho? Was it for kanye being in the bed with the kidz?
Heard 'Em Say
Mr. West, Mr. Wes'..Mr. Wes'..Mr. Wes... [echoes] [Kanye:] Uh, Yeah, Uh, yeah, uh, yeah, uh, yeah. [Piano drops]
And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tomorrow today. From the Chi, like Tim is the Hard-a-way, so this is in the name of love, like Robert say, Before you ask me to get a job today, can I at least get a raise on a minimum wage? And I know the government administered AIDS, so I guess we just pray like the minister say, Allāhu Akbar and throw em some hot cars, things we see on the screen are not ours, but these nigg*s from the hood so these dreams not far. Where I'm from, the dope boys is the rock stars, but they can't cop cars without seein' cop cars. I guess they want us all behind bars. I know it.
[Chorus (Adam Levine)]
Uh, And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tommorow today. (ooooooooo) And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tomorrow today. But we'll find a way. (And nothing lasts forever but be honest babe...
They say people in your life are seasons, and anything that happen is for a reason, and nigg*s guns a clappin and keep to squeezin', and Gran (Grandma) keep prayin' and keep believin' in Jesus and one day that ya see him, till they walk in his footsteps and try to be him, The devil is alive I feel him breathin', claimin' money is the key so keep on dreamin', And put those lottery tickets just to tease us. My aunt Pam can't put those cigarettes down, now my lil cousin smokin those cigarettes now. His job trying to claim that he too niggerish now. Is it cuz his skin blacker than licorice now? I can't figure it out...I'm stickin around.
[Chorus (Adam Levine)]
Uh, And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tommorow today. (ooooooooo) And I heard 'em say, nothin ever promised tomorrow today, but we'll find a way...
