Lyrics

Hear me now
Idle hands is the devils workshop
today youÃ?'re here and tomorrow youÃ?'re shot
Unfortunately it was my girl that day
up the block next to the park
where the kids always play
ah ricochet that is what the cop said
I donÃ?'t know he was shooting after dread
Who robed that liquor store
I never seen him before
But now my girl is on the floor slain to death

Can we see whatÃ?'s going wrong?
in this world today
We got to make ah change
Can we see whatÃ?'s going wrong?
in this world today
We got to make ah change
Ah stray away came and took my best friend
My bona fide sistrin and put her life to end
Ah stray away came in to her life that day
With my bloody hands I held her head and said
DonÃ?'t go away (way)
DonÃ?'t go away (way)
Oh no oh woe oh
DonÃ?'t go oh woe oh

See mama said when you get that fork in the road
Take ah strait away I aint listen
Turn left then I strayed away
Cap the pistol hit the block cause itÃ?'s bubbling
Fein bringing constant cream when youÃ?'re hustling
Gotta get mine chilling in front ah the store
Liquor and fine wine
Without any notion of life thatÃ?'s about to collide
One time scooping me creeping up approaching me
Pulled the burner close to me and lick ah shot

If theirÃ?'s ah hand for the gun
Finger for the trigger
Bullet for the whole world
When everybodyÃ?'s gone
WhatÃ?'s left to carry on?
If theirÃ?'s ah hand for the gun
Finger for the trigger
Bullet for the whole world
When everybodyÃ?'s gone
WhatÃ?'s left to carry on?

Ah stray away came and took my best friend
My bona fide sistrin and put her life to end
Ah stray away came in to her life that day
With my bloody hands I held her head and said
DonÃ?'t go away (way)
DonÃ?'t go away (way)
Oh no oh woe oh
DonÃ?'t go oh woe oh

She was the air that I breed
Her smile shined like the sun
When we were together
We were like one
Now sheÃ?'s gone I cant go on
All this pain from the bullet of ah gun yo!
And whatÃ?'s left for ah mother to do?
Her only child and sheÃ?'s the age of sixty two
Lord can some body tell me why?

If theirÃ?'s ah hand for the gun
Finger for the trigger
Bullet for the whole world
When everybodyÃ?'s gone
WhatÃ?'s left to carry on?
If theirÃ?'s ah hand for the gun

Ah stray away came and took my best friend
My bona fide sistrin and put her life to end
Ah stray away came in to her life that day
With my bloody hands I held her head and said
DonÃ?'t go away (way)
DonÃ?'t go away (way)
Oh no oh woe oh
DonÃ?'t go oh woe oh
