Jungle Brothers - What's Going On Lyrics

  • Verse 1: mike g
  • It's a cryin' shame, brothers takin' life as a game
  • Growing up against the law, but no-one knows who's to blame
  • Dealin' drugs on the corner, you don't have to, but you wanna
  • A meal is hard to make, but you tell yourself you're gonna
  • Dealing 12 to 12, day into evening
  • I wonder how you continue to be grieving
  • Your meal is made and it's time to chill
  • You buy the black mercedes benz with the gold to the grill
  • Cruisin' up the ave while your friends get jealous
  • You find out, you quickly get restless
  • You buy a gun, it doesn't help but hurt you
  • Because your so-called friend rattled on you
  • You're in the pen serving 10 to 20
  • Your boy snatched your girl and put use to your money
  • You're out for teen, but what does it mean?
  • You're just a wasted, young brother who lost it all on a dream
  • Chorus: (sampled from what's going on by marvin gaye)
  • What's goin' on, i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i
  • Yeah, what's goin' on, i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i
  • Verse 2: afrika, mike g
  • My blood brother is bleeding, it's a cryin' shame
  • Out on the street tryin' to play the game
  • Formally an in-mate straight from upstate
  • Can't stop him now 'cause you see it's just too late
  • He's on the run and he's got a gun
  • Stay out his way unless you want some
  • See, he's gettin' older, a bit more bolder
  • Got his name written up in the 5-0 folder
  • A big christmas list of all the crime's he's committed
  • He says he didn't do it, but we know he did it
  • Summons his lawyers, fingerprints, bung shots
  • Lookin' for my brother, yo, he's at the drug spots
  • Livin' off that cheap chinese food
  • He says he only bumps the people when he's in the mood
  • Runnin' 'round with his crews and his 2-2's
  • I saw him last night in the prime time news
  • Shot and killed by a
  • His birth to the earth was a big mistake
  • Now, history was not my favourite subject
  • I used to flip through the pages and get upset
  • Seein' little of black and too much of the other
  • (they tried to brainwash you) picture that, a jungle brother
  • Read this, read that, answer question 3
  • But when i got to 3, it had nothin' to do with me
  • Somethin' was wrong, and i knew it all along
  • Now tell me (please) what's goin' on
  • Repeat chorus
  • Verse 3: afrika, mike g
  • A: now, i've been told all the do's and don't-do-not's
  • My mother, hallelujah, she called the shots
  • She said, "don't play with guns and play with knives
  • And most of all, don't play with other people's wives
  • When you're walkin' down the street, pay the pushers no mind
  • 'cause all they wanna do is put your mind on cloud nine
  • Put your head up high and your feet on the ground
  • You don't have to be like everybody else to be down
  • Stay in school
  • G: don't be no fool
  • A: don't lose your temper
  • G: and keep your cool
  • A: follow your heart
  • G: and not your friends
  • A: and some of your friends
  • G: could lead you into dead ends"
  • A: the other day my father said, "son, god bless your soul
  • Our life is gettin' tougher and the world is cold"
  • I said, "daddy, daddy, daddy, what do you mean?" he said,
  • G: "you ain't got nothin' 'less you got the green"
  • A: i realise to myself things are gonna be hard
  • So each and every day i pray to god
  • I say, "now i lay me down to sleep
  • G: i give the lord my soul to keep
  • A: if i should die before i wake
  • G: take me to heaven 'cause i need a break
  • A: but if you let me live to another morn
  • G: i'd like to know what's goin' on
  • Chorus 2:
  • What's goin' on, i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i
  • Tell me what's goin' on, i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i
