New York Minute Lyrics

by El Fudge

[Hook]
In a New York Minute
There's only sixty seconds
But so much can happen in it
And time is infinte
So somethin's always happenin'
While I'm rappin' in
In a New York Minute
[x2]

[Verse 1]
Start's of with a scream, a lady
I turn my head a super being
He took a pocket book in between, his arms
I heard a siren, alarm
Inna the midst of chaos
I was still calm
As he was headed my way
Gassed like Remi I'm leaded
But it's not the highway
So I stuck out my foot
And this really put
Him in a bad situation
Cause now he's facin'
An on comin' taxi cab
There was more blood than a Maxi pad
His career had ended
The cab was rear ended
The next car was tail gaitin'
The fiend through up in the air was impaled by a nearby gate an'
He spoke the words of a five year old (I want my mommy)
Ten seconds later, his body was cold

[Hook x2]

[Verse 2]
Every since I was born, was told New York minutes
Are quick to turnin' port holes to those who walkin' in it
Usually happens to those who walk bented
Attractin' beef unconciously like they all wid it
Stayin' alive is a virtue
When you run into Tom Dick & Harry
That'll willingly hurt you
Tom's an airline stewardess eatin' food servin' you
Dick's a cemetery attendant earnin' funds buryin' you
And Harry just doesn't got all his marbles in him
Thinks he's on the same level as devils and argues wid 'em
Blows is thrown at first, but a recent new cocaine habit
got you not knowin' it hurts, these
Certain extra strength Tylenol tablets make you
Virtually turn into a mayonaisse backless
These certain movies turn the lead act to the actress
Put Jason on you I suggest you leave outta rappin'
One to the head and, two the legs then
Just to verify ya dead at times
Plans to stay home'll probably be the best
Stay on ya toes, don't become a casualty of stress
In a New York Minute!
A nigga could stop breathin'
In a New York Minute!
A baby could start teethin'
In A New York Minute!
Limbs get cut off for reachin'
In a New York Minute!
Niggas get caught sleepin'
In a New York Minute!
Can't find out who ya friends are
In a New York Minute!
Won't find out where the rest are
In a New York Minute!
Drug dealers lose all of they supplies
In a New York Minute!
And then find who's devils in disguise
In a New York Minute!
Shit can go up into flames
Wid no eye witnesses givin' out any names
In a New York Minute you can be awright
But the next New York Minute ya die
A New York Minute

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
