I Can

Dawn D Mitchell 1981 (NYC)

Be stupid so she can get out my face i spit in everybody

food and put drugs cuz i hate everybody you probably didnt

brush your teeth say its you go to the grocery and buy

condiments pepper and salt dont you see what they are

doing she gave it back to you whatever you did tell him you

dont need it i dont get nothing done nomore i brushed my

teeth i felt i was gone faint i dont want to be in nothing

but drugs with my cousin probably died break in the

street with me so i dont see what im doing
