Lyrics

Well there's a black cat
Crossing my path
It won't change my direction, I ain't ever turnin' back
There's a new man
On the side of the street
He's strummin' on his guitar and a stomping his feet

I said "Now,
What's goin' down
On this side of town?
Oh your life, or something you know nothing about?"
He said "Well,
I'll take your time for now
For a simple one's wind
I'll show you 'round the city if you buy me a dime"

And I'm feeling kinda sleepy
Maybe death has come to meet me
Like a black cat crossing my path
My bones are start to achin'
I've been shivering, I've been shaking
Got to get that monkey off of my back

Well there's a rained on
Waitin' for Tom
To come out of the rain
His thing is doggie and stone
There's a dopedealer
Out on the street comin' up
He tryna sell me a little something
That was stringing me along
I said now,
"What's your price that [?] pullin' them dies?"
I bought that little baggy and it ain't nothing nice
So I'm
In this room back, dropped that sh! t in the spoons
Seven seconds, I'd be duper than the sky can show

And I'm feeling kinda sleepy
Maybe death has come to meet me
Like a black cat crossing my path
My bones are start to achin'
I've been shivering, I've been shaking
Got to get that monkey off of my back

Watchin' the cops roll by, my perfection in their glasses
I'm smirking as he passes, pick my six up out the grass
"I'm preceded, sir, I makes my money off this curb"
Gotta bundle up what, I gotta bundle a girl
Sharpened up, with the cut, you get what you deserve
First taste comes free, but a second and third
Rat trapped in the trap, with some money to burn
Black cat in your path, took the wrong turn

In the west end of Atlanta
I got lost in the streetlights
Looking up at the stars
The sky swallowed me whole
Down another dead end road

And I'm feeling kinda sleepy
Maybe death has come to meet me
Like a black cat crossing my path
My bones are start to achin'
I've been shivering, I've been shaking
Got to get that monkey off of my back
