RETURN Lyrics

by Jay-z

Yo, this Tone the referee, knawhatimean?
An' I'm about to bring y'all some history
We got the Best of Both Worlds
An' I got the Get Fresh Crew, Doug Fresh
One, two, three, come on

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Whose is the freshest of them all?
I love 'em all but none of y'all is Doug E. as me
An' the boy, Kelly with the suicide doors, fuck 'em all

We got hits like a thirty shot clip
When we throw it in the air, everybody hit the floor
Holla at your boy, boys
When we boys, so we bringin' out them toys

I ain't a lame on them Dana Dane's
We give you nightmares, when the year change, we change
Nigga, we right here, we can go bank for bank
We can go clip for clip, nigga, chain for chain
We can go bitch for bitch, got a pretty young thing
That I keep by my hip, like my celly that rings

Meetin' Michelle at the hotel
While Jay an' Tone on the way to the after party
Got the ladies sayin', ?Oh?
Best of Both Worlds an' we rock the club, youknowhatimsayin?
Boy HO, Kells, we not playin'
Losers lose, so when we does what we do, we win

An' win again, like deja vu
Then we win again, like M.J. do
Three-peat, then we retreat to waters that's blue
Young Scrappy, that's what grown man do, let's move

In this arena, arena
All we wanna see is them hands up, hands up
This is for them hustlin' boys an' girls
It's the return of Best of Both Worlds

In this arena, arena
All we wanna see is them hands up, hands up
This is for them hustlin' boys an' girls
It's the return of Best of Both Worlds

Well once upon a time, they left the glove an' the star, kid
He swore he was the man but he was nothin' but garbage
Let me re-phrase that, bubblin' with pride
Did have skills but he was ugly inside

Instead of uplift folks, sittin' on the nonsense
Hurtin' people feelings like he didn't have a conscience
Like 'I love you', when he's hittin' that stash
Then degraded, the shorty, like he didn't have class

Even let a gay Jew man tack his Jheri
Then got the nerve to call the next cat a fairy
Swindlin', forgot the God above him
Finally fan base trinklin' down to nothin'

No concern for his estate, though, was yearnin' for a break
Bitter an' evil, didn't learn from his mistake
The moral of the story is 'Don't be a pair of knickers
Be good, boys an' girls an' you can be as great as Rick is'

In this arena, arena
All we wanna see is them hands up, hands up
This is for them hustlin' boys an' girls
It's the return of Best of Both Worlds

In this arena, arena
All we wanna see is them hands up, hands up
This is for them hustlin' boys an' girls
The remixes, the remix yo, track masters, c'mon

My baby momma's robe, my rent is overdue
It took half the pay an' now my life is filled with rainy days
But I stashed some dough, how much you'll ever know
It's Doug Fresh, Slick Rick, Kells an' Jay-Z

Paul Hardcastle
In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
