Artist: Slick Rick Album: The Great Adventures of Slick Rick Song: Hey Young World Typed by: OHHLA Webmaster DJ Flash Guess who's back (3X) Hey young world... the world is yours Hey young world... the world is yours Young world young world... the world is yours Young wo-ah-huh-huh-huh-urld This rap here... it may cause concern it's broad and deep... why don't you listen and learn Love mean happiness... that once was strong But due to society... even that's turned wrong Times have changed... and it's cool to look bummy and be a dumb dummy and disrespect your mummy Have you forgotten... who put you on this Earth? Who brought you up right... and who loved you since your birth? Reward is a brainwashed kid goin wild Young little girls already have a child Bad company... hey, now you've been framed Your parents are hurting... hurting and ashamed You're ruining yourself... and your mommy can't cope Hey, little kids don't follow these dopes Here's a rule for the non cool... your life, don't drool Don't be a fool like those that don't go to school Get ahead... and accomplish things You'll see the wonder and the joy life brings Don't admire thieves... hey they don't admire you Their time's limited, hardrocks too So listen, be strong, scream whoopee-doo Go for yours, cause dreams come true And you'll make your mommy proud... so proud of you too And this is a message... that the Ruler Rick threw And it's true "You know, you know what, you know what, you know what? We like to party, like to party" (repeat 3X) Hey young world, the world is yours Hey young world "Yo peep this" Hey Mr. Bigshot... hey, don't you look fly? But you don't have a nickle... ohhhh, my my my You've been fightin again and, you forgot why Hey kid, walk straight, master your high Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.... because you make your family cry And all jokes aside, are you in good health? Hey little boy... now have you really checked yourself? You're a disgust, you know someone that I can't trust, you'd steal mom's welfare... and you'd run and buy some dust, and plus, a must so... bigshot you're not Your friends are talkin and I'm hearin that your girls are what? You didn't know? Go steal and rob And while you're at it... go get a suit for a j-awhh-ob You see you're actin like this urge is demandin C'mon, wake up... have some understandin Society's a weak excuse for a man It's time for the brothers... rap is trying to take the stand Believe it or not, the Lord still shines on you deep Guides you... and he watched you as you grew, plus past the age of... a little child, that's true But folks your age don't act like you do, so so be mature... and put the point to a halt And if you're over eighteen... I wish you'd act like an adult Don't live in a world... of hate hate hate Pull yourself together... and get yourself straight Men don't steal... hey, most don't borrow And if you smoke crack... your kids'll smoke crack tomorrow So be more mature... and kids do your chores Make your own money... hey, be proud that's yours You know why, cause that's a man... that's brains no spite Stayin out of trouble... when it comes in sight And a man never loses a fight... in God's sight Cause righteous laws are overdue And this is a message that the Ruler Rick threw And it's true "You know, you know what, you know what, you know what? We like to party, like to party" (repeat 3X) Hey young world, the world is yours Hey young world... "Yo peep this... MC... Ricky... D... The Grand Wizzard... and his partner... and his and his and his partner... say what? La-Di! Da-Di! La-Di! Da-Di! (repeat 2X) La-Di-Da-Di..."
