I met a gypsy and she hipped me to some life game,
To stimulate, then activate the left and right brain.
Said, ‘Baby boy, you only funky as your last cut.
You focus on the past, your ass’ll be a has-what.’
That’s one to live by, or either that’s one to die to.
We missed a lot of church, so the music is our confessional.
Everybody’s got opinions on the way you’re livin’,
But see, they can’t fill your shoes.
We missed a lot of church, so the music is our confessional
I said, ‘What you wanna be?’ She said, ‘Alive.’
It made me think for a minute, then looked in her eyes
…I coulda died.
