[ Intro ]

What we have to do is deal with it when these idividuals are young enough. If you wish to be saved, not in a religious sense but not to constitute what this country at times calls if or which over. We seem to be approaching an age of the gross. We all have this idea that we should move up from our parents station and each generation should do a little bit better.

[ Verse 1 ]

Come on, letís cut the bullshit enough
Letís get it started, letís start addressing this issue and open it up
Letís take this shit back to bassmint
And we can disscuss statements thats made on this tape
And its whole origin of the music that we all know and love
The music that we all enjoy the music you all accuse me of tryna destroy
Letís rewind it to 89 when I was a boy on the east side of Detroit
Crossin 8 Mile in the border in the hate territory
Iíd like to share a story, this is my story and cant no body tell it for me
You will well inform me, I am well aware that I donít belong here
Youíve made that perfectly clear, I get my ass kicked damn near everywhere
From Bel-Air shopping center just for stopping in there
From the black side all the way to the white side
Okay thereís a bright side a day that I might slide
You may call it a past I call it haulin my ass
Through that patch of grass over them railroad tracks
Oh them railroad tracks, them old railroad tracks
Them good old notorious oh well known tracks

[ Chorus ] x2

Come on lets go back
Follow the yellow brick road as we go on another episode
Journey with me as I take you through this nifty little place
I once used to call home sweet home

[ Verse 2 ]

I roam the streets so much they call me a drifter
Sometimes I stick up a thumb just to hitch hike
Just to get picked up to get me a lift to 8 mile and van dike
And steal a god damn bike from somebodyís backyard
And drop it off at the park that was the half way mark
To meet Kim had to walk back to her mamaís them dramas after dark
To sneak me in the house when Iím kicked out my momís
Thats about the time I first met Proof when poof heíd carry on the set
Set eyes born in and out some flyers, he was doin some talent shows
At center line, I had told him to stop by and check this out sometime
He looked at me like Iím out my mind shook his head like white boys dont know how to rhyme
I spit out a line and rhymed birthday with first place
And we both had the same rhymes that sound alike
We was on the same shit that Big Daddy Kane shit with compound syllables sound combined
From that day we was down to ride somehow we knew weíd meet again somewhere down the line

[ Chorus ] x2

Come on lets go back
Follow the yellow brick road as we go on another episode
Journey with me as I take you through this nifty little place
I once used to call home sweet home

[ Verse 3 ]

My first year in 9th grade, canít forget that day at school
It was cool till your man MC Sham came through
And said that Boom was the brain cuz the clan makes troops
It was rumors but man god damned they flew
Musta been true because man we done banned they shoes
I had the new ones the Cool J, Ice land swayed too
And we just through them in the trash like they yesterdayís news
Guess who came through next, X clam debut
Professor X and glorious exists in a state of red, black, and green
With a key sissies now with this bein a new trend
We donít fit in crackas is out with Cactus albums
Blackness is in, African symbols and medallions
Represents black power and we ainít know what it meant
Me and my man Howard and ??? would go to the mall with Ďem
All over our necks like weíre showin Ďem off not knowin at all
We was bein laughed at you ainít even half black
You ainít supposed to have that homie let me grab that
And that Flavor Flave clock we goní have to snatch that
All I remember is meetin back at Manixís basement
Sayin how we hate this, our races wit dope the x clan take this
Which reminds me back in 89 me and Kim broke up for the first time
She was tryna two time me and there was this black girl
At our school who thought I was cool cuz I rapped so she was kinda eyein me
And oh the irony guess what her name was ainít even goní say it plus
The same color hair as hers was and blue contacts and a pair of jugs
The bombest god damn girl in our whole school if I could pull it
Not only would I become more popular but I would be able to piss Kim off at the same time
But it backfired I was supposed to dump her but she dumped me for this black guy
And thats the last I ever seen or heard or spoke to the oh foolish pride girl
But Iíve heard people say they heard the tape and it ainít that bad
But it was I singled out a whole race and for that apologize
I was wrong cuz no matter what color a girl is she still a [bitch?]

[ Chorus ] x2

Come on lets go back
Follow the yellow brick road as we go on another episode
Journey with me as I take you through this nifty little place
I once used to call home sweet home
