It's Tricky
This speech is my recital
I think it's very vital
To rock a rhyme
That's right on time
"It's Tricky" is the title
Here we go!

It's tricky to rock a rhyme
To rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky
It's tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky
It's tricky to rock a rhyme
To rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky
Tr-tr-tr-tricky, tricky, tricky

I met this little girly
Her hair was kinda curly
Went to her house and bust her out
I had to leave real early
These girls are really sleazy
All they just say is "please me"
"Or spend some time and rock a rhyme"
I said, "It's not that easy"

It's tricky to rock a rhyme
To rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky (how is it D?)
It's tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky
It's tricky to rock a rhyme
To rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky
Tricky, tricky, tricky

In New York the people talk and try to make us rhyme
They really hope but we just walk because we have no time
And in the city, it's a pity, 'cause we just can't hide
Tinted windows don't mean nothin, they know who's inside

It's tricky to rock a rhyme
To rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky (how is it D?)
Tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky
It's tricky to rock a rhyme
To rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky
Tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky
Huh

When I wake up, people take up mostly all of my time
I'm not singin, phone keep ringin 'cause I make up a rhyme
I'm not braggin, people naggin 'cause they think I'm a star
Always tearin what I'm wearin, I think they're goin too far
A girl named Carol follows Daryll every gig we play
Then D dissed her and dismissed her, now she's jockin Jay
I ain't lyin, girls be cryin 'cause I'm on TV
They even bother my poor father 'cause he's down with me

It's tricky to rock a rhyme
To rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky (how is it?)
Tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky
It's tricky to rock a rhyme
To rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky
Tr-tr-tr-tr-tr-tricky
Tr-tr-tr-tricky
Tr-tr-tr

We are not thugs
We don't use drugs
But you assume on your own
They offer coke and lotsa dope
But we just leave it alone
It's like that y'all, y'all
But we don't quit
You keep on rock shock
'Cause this is it
