Song Lyrics

[David Nevermind] (Petey Pablo)

This is David Nevermind

And today`s controversy is coming from yet another member

(Aiyyo tell `em that we not gon` be playin)

or should I say members of the hip-hop community:

(I`ll blaze `em n*ggaz) Petey Pablo - a new artist signed under Jive

(Aiyyo go get my homeboys) and has teamed up with Timbaland, outta V.A.

(We gonna blow this up) In a quest to redeem his title

And bring, North Carolina, and v*rginia, to the front of the line

(Yeah, we gon` do it) We`re gonna stand by

[Chorus 2X: Petey Pablo]

This one`s for North Carolina! C`mon and raise up

Take your shirt off, twist it `round yo` hand

Spin it like a helicopter

North Carolina! C`mon and raise up

This one`s for you, uh-huh, this one`s for who?

Us, us, us; yes sir!

[Petey Pablo]

Who am I? Petey Pab` motherf**ker!

First to put it down for North Carolina

But guess what (what?), it`s been worth it

I`ma superstar, bought me a big ol` car

Four point six (see the car!)

Black wit the bars from the front to back

and got a button in the middle, make the trunk go "eh-eh"

But it ain`t `bout that

It`s about gettin whatchu gettin and drivin all back here

Big fellas (six fellas)

Half of me and Carolina n*ggaz done time together

Polk, Bladen, Marshall, Hoke, Greene County, Tillery, damn

Transfer, Sandy Ridge, Browns over here (greens over here)

Pasqoutank, down on the, Odom East (lemme think)

Johnson County, Franklin, Burgaw, Newport, Warren, Shelby, Kenansville

(Man Currituck) Tarboro, Triangle, Goldsboro, Halifax, Statesville

And all my n*ggaz doin life behind the wall

This right here, right here, right here`s for


[Petey Pablo]

Uhh, uh-huh, uh-huh, beat it, beat it

You remember them days y`all, we used to play y`all

The radio and put our own lil` part in the song y`all

We used to (Rep our city, rep our city!)

Runnin through the school halls

just before our basketball pep-rally jumped off

(hah!) My house, my home, my hood (hah!)

My brother, my sister, my cous` (hah!)

My n*ggaz that was there from the beginin

been wit me even `fore they knew what bein with me was

Y`all n*ggaz just glanced at it, now I gotcha starin at it

but it`s been the same ol` North Carolina it`s been bein

Y`all n*ggaz just gettin it, oh it`s a shame isn`t it?

Oh you thought we said we were comin wit a whole lotta somethin

we were bullshhh! (ahh!)


[Petey Pablo]

Man I had to do it

just incase you were one of the ones who wanted to come and ask somethin stupid

(What you think you doin?) What it look like?

Puttin it down for my n*ggaz in the south side

North Carolina, South Carolina

And all my little bity overlooked hick towns

We gonna hit y`all asses, ain`t nothin but a T.T. blast

that we got comin atcha, (beat) slammin, (first) classic

(Gold for this) What`s after platinum?

(Baby you don`t want the bomb) And I don`t meant to scare ya

but I`m about to bring it home

Blow these valleys, these hills, these streams and N.C. outta the water

How`s it feel to look a motherf**ker dead in the grill

and tell `em - "I told ya!"


[David Nevermind]

Uhh, af-after seeing this

I-I have no other questions, I, I mean I

Hey look, this is David Nevermind

I`m signing off, but before I`m outta here, remember

If I`m ever caught with anything I`m not supposed to have it`s Nevermind

North Carolina and V.A. are definitely at the front of the line

You have my vote of support, over and out
