"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare

Basketball is life?

What kinda life you living?




As you dripping sweat, you dripping wet with the

Spirit of revenge

Play until you win


Forget what's important like your PACEs left behind

When you try to graduate high school you will find

You're in a bind cuz you aint exercised your mind



Come into the classroom, put your shirt in your pants

I'm sorry, but Chemistry aint no song and dance

Leave that basketball behind

It's the fall of mankind

Cuz when your mind is occupied with a ball and a hoop

You won't mean what you say and your words will be like-oops!

When the people who love you walk away

Cuz they feel like that sport comes before them every day

What will she say?


But they're gone and they can't be regained

If you had stopped the swish maybe loneliness wouldn't

Be your bane

Now what you got?

A deflated basketball

From every time it hit a head or a concrete wall

If only ten years ago you had stopped

Your wife and kids would not have walked out

Addicted like a crackhead on crack

Or a pothead on pot

A piece of leather, some Skips, and bills is all you got

Don't got those Jordans like you thought

So basketball's your wife?

Boy, you aint even got a life!
