Raw How You Like It Lyrics

by Common


la la la la la
la la la la la
[verse 1]
bow! bow!
i came through the door with the raw martin margiela superstar status
everything stellar, with some bad bitches and some ex-drug sellers
niggas already jealous, we in this joint like bob marley and the wailers
she already wanna pick, bitch don't be so over zealous
go to the bar to get around like a propeller
the bar maid's name is stella
i'm so appalled like mccartney, would you record me
am i really mad? hardly, i'm here to party
one of y'all to give me body like lati-fah
niggas in the corner smoking that ree-fa
seen a girl she had bottom like a speak-er
wanna put some hands on her like a preach-er
hmmmm! well let me take my time
she ordered bacardi, getting twisted in the limelight
seen that ass cause i got hindsight
she was lit shining bright in a fit that was tight
'bout to get that invite to a night over egypt
she said "you rap?" yea mummy
i'm tutankhamun kicking it, spending this rap money

[hook] x2
feels so good
i wanna touch somebody
so let's go, go
wanna feel you close, keep touching
[bridge] x4
la la la la la, how you like it
[verse 2]
she was all couture, in a tom ford
security guard let me in cause i'm lord
of finesse, the under, the rings, the dress
code is to always stay fresh
aware of a chest cause i stay abreast
she was extra cold, i'm here to de-congest
this nigga next to us was slopped and made a mess
knocking over bar stools, i hoped that he carpooled
i'm locked into my mood, long as dude don't disturb my groove
i won't have to take it back to high school
rewind! no need to take me back in time
keep my mind on the grind and the great feline
cause what's in front of me is this behind
up north she's thick, down south she's fine
tuned in to what i'm doing
i'm so unassuming when i'm pursuing
the ladies, the ladies, a soldier of love like sade
so in love to this lady when this nigga tried to play me
saw me talking to slim and started acting shady
dude got foul like crack in the 80s
uh, uh, uh! you don't wanna test this yo
you never know who got a check up in the disco
"you hollywood." nah nigga, i'm chicago
so i cracked his head with a motherfucking bottle
[hook] x2
[bridge] x4

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
