I got nothing to my name but suffering and pain... Muscle in my lane while I'm hustling for change Got nothing to my name but suffering and pain Steaks are high... Anything Well done is rare... Mostly Medium, Mostly medium, I dunno how these Folk's believe in em, This steak is a piss take its mistake what a shit state no I wont be eating em Hope and dream again, hope and dream again, on the open road with my team again Big smoke on the green again, BigSmoke on the Green again You minors mine a line from a rhyme of mine And no one Major do it, crime is a crime man I'm trying to shine So I'm playing through it, tryin to grind with a dime on my mind I'm just making music, anything well done is rare Mostly Medium, Average, that's so mean, there's a whole scene of em Wont be seen with em, namaste in my lane saying: I dont agree with em Go to EDM, go to EDM, still got no bars dont get seen again BigSmoke on the Green again, Bigsmoke on the Green again Announcing I'm broke with a ounce on a boat, Drown in a Fountain of hope and a mountain of dope I dunno how you can cope, I dunno how you can cope Got nothing to my name but suffering and pain... Muscle in my lane while I'm hustling for change Got nothing to my name but suffering and pain Steaks are high... Anything Well done is rare... Well done like I done well but i felt dumb like a dumbbell Just weight, so i hung well, look at the phone for a rung bell Get a Call back so I call back, wanna talk crap i wanna talk rap You dont wanna talk that, just show me the door and I'll walk the path Autograph, sign here, contract for like 5 years That's a con Jack, don't cry tears, eye manifest and climb tiers ...Smoke my own joints, rolling em out, flows are on point Make my own beats, smoke my own, anything well done is rare... Mostly medium, done with a deal, Bilbo Baggin up under the hill Still Joe stackin' those funds for a mill, still Joe lacking those funds for a meal, Chill... This a hunger appeal, moon coming out and the sun getting real Bill for a debt and debt for a bill but i don't get a cheque for a kill castaway, just me and my will son, real recognize real, still gotta kill some Just me and my will son, real recognize real still... Feelin like I'm strugglin again as I shuffle through the hustle and the bustle of the game

Yesterday seems so long ago Tomorrow seems so far away Yesterday the Scene seemed stronger bro Feelin weaker every week of every day Before Hip Hop I was a Junglist, Gurned up in Glastonbury off my head on tonnes of shit Me and the boys were having fun with it Eventually they settled down but me I wast done with it. I played with Pendulum, Friction and Andy C Before Warners brothers, Shogun and Ram were cheese Before jump up was jump up and fans would leave I would jump up for hours not demanding fees... I never talked like a badman or walk like a badman Or sold drugs to little kids I thnk me being me threatened every MC Among a sea of all these wannabe flids... Action Replay Blues, track with DJ Fuze back when we'd play tunes Today a rave is not a place i wanna go... And yesterday seems so long ago.... Yesterday seems so long ago Tomorrow seems so far away Yesterday the Scene seemed stronger bro Feelin weaker every week of every day Wrote my own beats, write my own raps Promote my own streets, grind and go back Record at home, sheeet I'm trying to grow jack And you wanna book me for nothing? No thanks... I am a one man team... 10 different jobs just for one mans dream But after 15 years doin 10 different jobs Just about covered one mans green.... Bad habit like the rest of them... Deeper south, deeper west of them We can be best of friends or clesh mi den I aint down with lying like a lion wouldn't rest with them My Pride don't sleep, getting old son You on a New wave... I'm on a old one Point break with a joint and a cold one You on a new wave... I'm on a old one....

Smile if you're broke, Smile if you make a bit Smile for a joke, Smile if you braving it Smile just to cope, even if you faking it's All that we have, better smile for the sake of it I done some dumb shit, and got away with it A smile's dangerous and powerful don't play with it Uncle Ben Speech was always my favourite bit The moral is you should never be a blatant prick Been there, done that, made a sequal Starring captain good intentions and major evil Now the Hobits wanna play with Smeagol I get depressious and I'm hating people, but I'm great with eagles Fly away and get to the point Roll up your regret in a joint and let me hit that quick Been a minte since I lit that spliff The only way to get past this is get passed this I must sound prescriptive and one sided I'm a dumb guy that buns hybrid But I'm high kid... left passin the right way Howards Marks have a nice day Smile if you're broke, Smile if you make a bit Smile for a joke, Smile if you braving it Smile just to cope, even if you faking it's All that we have, better smile for the sake of it Truth of the matter is, I blaze a bit Got CD's in my bag, wanna trade a bit? See these seeds in ya bag, i dont rate the shit Still, safe...Smile and just take a hit When life gives you lemons... Swap it with a mate and get some cheddar from Devon I'm greencentric, eecentric Smoke weed everyday, he said it and we meant it These days I'm the last of a dying breed We got familys Joe we can't be high on weed ...As if they getting high from saying "Hi" to me I walk the high street stoned, see the irony I should move to Spain but, i'm too used to rain But over there its legal, i could grow a super-strain Single minded without making a single I'm blatantly single and making it simple; Get me that fuckin cheese...

I want the crazy cheddar, I cant find the cheese Funny that a strain will set my mind at ease I want the crazy cheddar, i cant find the cheese These days I'm a hard man to try and please.. Call a local lad, what you not about? What you on about? There's never been a Chronic Drought If there's other ways for getting I've forgotten how Find another Key of this cheddar cheese and lock it down Now other mates are popping round, shopping round Trying everything to cop in town, even cops in town... ...Who said cops? Sit down! We need a crop that's already chopped and a lot of it now Right! Lets talk about stating the obvious Stone Circle sitting round debating philosophers Waiting for promises, all the shottas hating the lot of us Cuz it's Ding Ding Fassy Hole, get weighing the chornic up Nobody holding like good boxing Get a text, yo, somebody got a good box in Whole hood watching like Compton with Kendrick Man, this had better be the peng shit i want the crazy cheddar, cant find the cheese Funny that a strain will set my mind at ease I want the crazy cheddar, cant find the cheese These days I'm a hard man to try and please.. I hit the streets feeling optimistic Another day without the cheddar i'd have gone bolistic ...Feeling Rocky but I gone the distance You feeling Rocky too? Apollo who? I'm on the mission Heading for that heavyweight high-grade Frank Sinatra Magic Carpet; Levitate my way Up to now its been a dry day Spark Another Owl make your eyes rain Seeing red, seeing red and blue Spider mans mask, Mary Jane I will get to you Never mind what devils do, I stay Green Goblin Finally arrive get the weed and I'm off again... ...I can smell her in my pocket, begging me to smoke her and I'm telling her to stop it Na...I'd never sell her for a profit... I'd go to hell and back to get the chronic...

I know the groom and the bride... and they're the only two that i like Two at the bar and two at the side There's not a dude in site... hang on... IS THIS A WEDDING FULL OF WOMEN? IS THIS A WEDDING FULL OF GIRLS? IT'S A WEDDING FULL OF OH MY GOD THIS IS THE BEST FUCKING WEDDING IN THE WORLD!! Double checking I aint getting carried away Me plus the geezer getting married today... Hit me like a smack in the face It's like a snoop dog video from back in the day Hello i'm joe... you look dumb with your phone. Are you done with your phone? Dd you come here alone? whats with the thunderous tone? I just thought we could have...SO... Are you up for a bone? Stuck in a rut wanna fuck for a mo? No? I'm on to the next chick, ask evevrybody for a chill and a netflix Regroup by the pea soup.... three zoots then i'm on for the recruits You're well read like a beetroot I could eat you, yeah i'm Joe nice to meet you... I gotta slow down, get on back to that Motown Meet a girl then I meat a girl and there's plenty of meat that can go round All lies, I'm at home! Where's the punchline? I dont know ....I just thought it'd be dead cool to break the fourth wall trying to be deadpool So that's a weird ending... I guess I'm a weird guy Moral of the story is...

I'm not a player I just Big Pun... You're not a player if the chick run Ask how's your girl he's like which one? Now she done the same it's a witch hunt... Love and War What are brothers for? I aint above the Law Can't Bee with your honey now you buzzing more We got Pubs to Tour and Scrub the Floor for Drugs you bought Then Dropped before you could Drop a single drop of that Stuff you Thought Was trips... Now we at that awkwards bit, Where you're caught with a quarter of awesome piff, Kicked out like illeagy recorded clips in court Then you thought you'd just call the chick like you're legit... But you drunker than a man should be I'm bollocks off the couple that you handed me Nex thing, this wankers grabbin his keys so he can Drive drunk to this chick he plans to leave... (The WIngman) What a waste of day I got wasted today man I'm wasting away And it pains me to say what a shame of a game we were aiming to play I snatch the keys back, this is crazy living Calling all his ex girls to see if they forgive him I'm getting shaky vision couple that with Babysitting Double back around the block to clear my head and play position Now my mate is missing... and i hate to ditch him If he's gone and he doesn't wanna take me with him I'm a blameless victim, it's only fair you know... Turn around he's like "there you are, where'd you go?" Bollocks, this close to Home Alone... If the story was Mcualy off his dome'n' stoned I'm taking Homey Home like bro's from Moe's Dont wanna Barney so I B Sharp on the Open Road Yo baby, you on board? Hollar at this one Broad En Core, fuck it, if he wants more... I'm at my front door, my brother's running game Another job well done but what a fkn day... (The Wingman) What a waste of day I got wasted today man I'm wasting away And it pains me to say what a shame of a game we were aiming to play

Na... we aint fitting through the same door... Get a chance to play the game, then you wanna play more ...Every step could be a claymore Waiting for a hand, yuo gotta take yours... All my mates are making kids, I just wanna make a hit Someting small to stay legit to warrent this relationship Feelin ancient kid, guess i wasnt made for this You all sound like you're from London, fuck my life, i'm hating it... This your spliff boy? I'm taking it Take a hit and make it quick before i run away with it... Thinkin back to when i gave a shit When skibadee was my favourite And mini-me was in raves with him I thought i'd be making waves with him Second i got into hip hop, thinking i'd be mates with Slim Waiting on a growth spurt to shake the rim Now I gotta find a job cuz gigs dont seem to pay for shit We aint fitting through the same door You gimme something i can aim for Whole world rappin, we aint fitting through the same door You gimme something i can aim for Whole world rappng, we aint fitting through the same door You gimme something i can aim for Every now and then i get a glimpse and a taste on my tounge Like yeah, it's exactly what i came for... I like likes and i'm in-to-views But my CV aint getting me no interviews It's like dating, you're hating the waiting You're all dressed up and they're just not that into you Free gig, bottom Bill, wait for a sec... ...If you my dog why you hating a vet Pay me the check or pay me respect and i'll play for a set. Burning all my bridges while I'm waiting for death ...Need a fix like i'm faulty, Quick to get salty This Chip on my shoulder is Moldy... So, no Gold for this Golden oldie Aint worth knowing or well known beacuse the old me Was holding me up and holding me back Sobering up, aint goin with that i know it's a drag Tell me self Joe its the fags, it so isnt that I left my soul in the bag...

Oi! This is the plan, back in the day he was hitting the fan Jackin' the trade but he isn't the man! Why isn't anyone listening? Dam! Missing the fam? Visiting Nan, visiting hours are whittling down Now there's nobody to visit, I visit the body it isn't around Grave sight at the grave site, so I exit stage right I'm on stage right, I got stage fright I don't really wanna play or play fight I'm breaking the first rule and the second too what you reckon dude? You wrekin dudes like its Teken 2 with a weapon Who is respecting you? That's Fear you can smell... Everybody sees your moves and hears you as well And we gonna see you in Hell... I get Vex, Vex.... Joe Chill, chillin now, still in doubt I should live in town Give in? How can I give in now? Trippin out like I'm skipping wrong Bit of piff and I writ a song, Lit a spliff and I hit a bong Sure to grow if get a long, short, grow.. long Feeling gone wandering where has the evening gone Pondering weather to leave this one with a leaf this.. strong I believe it's on... Chronic, with them tears you can tell, Indoors for months cuz that's Fear you can smell... That's Fear you can smell... Everybody sees your moves and hears you as well And we gonna see you in Hell...I get Vex... Back on my feet... Second Breakfast attacking the street Beatmakekers are backing the beats and rappers are saying raps are a treat Jeeh! Is that actually me? This time last year i was acting a chief Old Skool TV my Practice was peak but now that I practice things are less weak I went boom bap did a few raps with a few chaps got a few daps and a few crew saying tru dat and I'm chuffed bro Typhoon in a Tugboat, what's it all mean? Fuck knows But I done shows and I'm gun ho for a tonne mo' so book me quick No money for the bus then sook mi dick I've looked a prick I'm used to it, happy and bless but rap is a stress when everybody in the whole room can spit... Head Shot, Press kit, I wish I'd never said shit Man... wish I'd never said shit...

Ten pound for muvvaa, Ten pound for for me.... Ten pound to save...Ten pound to eat.... Ten pound for warty to make me believe That a stoner like me can achieve... Respect to the workin class dad, me? I aint got a girl tonight, put the world to rights No father to my style, i'm the dirty type, ...Just Waiting for a girl to bite I heard she might, Someset Suburban type Somebody I could Learn to like Evening Cypher: Smoke a herb at night Burned a Pipe, hype like I earned a stripe... I went for mine go for yours, open doors ,show them who they opened for Broke and poor, oh bro you hoped for more Still stoked at the blokes that I opened for I'm happy... like pahrrell said, well fed Eating good sonny, na money, Wealth Ed Read a book funny dummy get yourself read.. And do a weekly budget... Ten pound for muvva, Ten pound for for me.... Ten pound to save...Ten pound to eat.... Ten pound for warty to make me believe That a stoner like me can achieve... Me myself and THAT guy with the Akai, The man is a boss... Another Underworld Epic in the Land of The Lost I been my own worst enemy with handling costs Once you handle a little then you can handle a lot BLAOW! Buyin more than just a bag of weed Eww I dont buy beats, what? You just blag em free? This aint no playground son, dont be tagging me You either Have the Fee or you aint PAYIN for a man to eat... When the mortage is payed with respect I will make you a cheque you can save or collect Til then.. Behave or accept That freestyles are free but you pay for a set ...Exposure is creepy Graveyard Set feelin Sobre and Sleepy Flyer for promoters and hope that he sees me... And that i get my fifty quid...
