SAY HELLO TO THE BAD GUY Lyrics

by Jay-z

Its that Rocafella music....
Soulful...

Say hello
To the bad guy
Hello
They say i'm a bad guy
I come from the bottom
But now i'm mad fly
Say Hello
They say i'm a menace
That's the picture they paint
Hello
They say a lot about me
Let me yell ya what i ain't
Hello
They say i'm a bad guy
Say Hi to the bad guy
Hello
I come from the bottom
But now i'm mad fly
They say i'm a menace
That's the picture they paint
They say a lot about me
Let me tell ya what i ain't
Say hello
Hello
Ay, ay, ay, ay
They say a lot about me
Let me tell you what i ain't

I ain't playing,
Life's short, so i aimed
I ain't waiting for life to start portrayin' em
Its twice as hard to get a job that's paying
So i ain't payin' attention to what you saying
Rain-drops keep falling on my brain
Constant in the drop, all flames
I'm so hot even if the weather change
I don't have no top, i'm insane
Remember darkskinned Jermaine?
Swayed in the rain, im sorta kinda the same
Except i'm no lame and you gonna know my name
Before i go to work and feel my pain
Saying, i'm a bad guy, why's that?
Cause when my back's against the wall, nigga, i react
Secretly though, i know you admire that
You wish you had the balls to fire back--
Say hello, uh, uh, hello, uh. uh
You wish you had the balls to fire back

Say hello
To the bad guy
Hello
They say i'm a bad guy
I come from the bottom
But now i'm mad fly
Hello
They say i'm a menace
That's the picture they paint
Hello
They say a lot about me
Let me yell ya what i ain't
Hello
They say i'm a bad guy
Say Hi to the bad guy
Hello
I come from the bottom
But now i'm mad fly
They say i'm a menace
That's the picture they paint
They say a lot about me
Let me tell ya what i ain't
Say hello
Hello
Ay, ay,
They say a lot about me
Let me tell you what i ain't

I ain't no ordinary nigga
Look around and see what 'ordinary' gets ya
Extraordinary figures
I'm an extra-ordinary nigga
Before my name became Jigga
Before i sang, i had that thang on sippers
Can't complain bout what they ain't gon' give ya
That ain't gon' get you shit, mightaswell give up
Or get up, get out and get something, nigga
Get a job, my nigga, or get to dumping
Only God can judge him, only he without sin
Can tell me if my means can justify my ends
Til' then, i'm just gon' fly in the benz
Wire my friends through Western Union
Sssshhhh....surprising my sister, knockin'
Here comes the bad guy again!
Say hello
Uh uh
Hello
uh uh
Hello
Here comes the bad guy again

Say hello
To the bad guy
Hello
They say i'm a bad guy
I come from the bottom
But now i'm mad fly
Hello
They say i'm a menace
That's the picture they paint
Hello
They say a lot about me
Let me yell ya what i ain't
Hello
They say i'm a bad guy
Say Hi to the bad guy
Hello
I come from the bottom
But now i'm mad fly
They say i'm a menace
That's the picture they paint
They say a lot about me
Let me tell ya what i ain't
Say hello
Hello
Ay, ay,
They say a lot about me
Let me tell you what i ain't

We ain't thugs for the sake of just being thugs
Nobody do dat where we grew at, nigga, DUH!
The poverty line, we not above
So out come the mask and glove cause we ain't feelin' the love
We ain't doing crime for the sake of doing crime
We movin' dimes cause we ain't doin' fine
One out of three of us is locked up doing time
You know what that type of shit can do to a nigga mind?
My mind on my money, money on my mind
If you owe me ten dollars, you ain't giving me nine
Ya'll ain't give me 40 acres and a mule
So i got my Glock 40, now i'm cool
And if Al Sharpton is speaking for me
Somebody get him the word and tell him i don't approve
Tell him i'll remove the curses
If you tell me our schools gon' be perfect
When Jena 6 don't exist
Tell him THAT's when i'll stop saying bitch---BIIITCH!

Say hello
To the bad guy
Hello
They say i'm a bad guy
I come from the bottom
But now i'm mad fly
Hello
They say i'm a menace
That's the picture they paint
Hello
They say a lot about me
Let me yell ya what i ain't
Hello
They say i'm a bad guy
Say Hi to the bad guy
Hello
I come from the bottom
But now i'm mad fly
They say i'm a menace
That's the picture they paint
They say a lot about me
Let me tell ya what i ain't
Say hello
Hello
Ay, ay,
They say a lot about me
Let me tell you what i ain't

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
