doing dumb shit lyrics – ice cube

o’shea, o’shea
get your *ss in here, boy
you hear me calling you?

when i was young, i used to hang with the seventh graders
little bad motherf*cker playing space invaders
f*cking with the girls in the fourth grade
either feeling on they b*tts or pulling on they braids

walking with the schoolhouse bully
by doing that, i had a lot of pull, g
cheating on tests, making a mess
cussing like a sailor at recess

it must a been a half moon
’cause you’ll catch me running out the little girl’s bathroom
chewing on good and plenties
got my gamble on at lunch pitching pennies

yo, i was living like the cl*ss clown
pulling all the hokes, making all the jokes, man
when you young it’s hard to see
that it’s wrong throwing rocks at the rtd

popping out your window with a bb gun
better yet knocking on your door and run
playing hide-and-go-get-it for a little stank
even though i was still shooting blanks

as soon as the dark hit
i was stealing candy out the corner market
until i got my *ss whipped
’cause i was ten years old, doing dumb sh*t

thirteen, that’s how old i was
when my jimmy started getting a little peach fuzz
and i was looking at any b*tt and *ss
me and my homies started cutting cl*ss

going up to the high school
looking for any b*tch i could lie to
tell ’em i was older than i really was
smoked my first joint and got really buzzed

that’s what a mack’s made of
but when i got my first piece of p*ssy i fell in love
hard as a rock the long way
and then i put the rubber on the wrong way

but i still gotta have it
overexcited and f*cking like a jackrabbit
godd*mn, i was hot
a virgin but i still knew how to lay pipe

even though the hoe worked me
i still knocked the boots from here to albuquerque
then the sh*t got strange money
i started shaking and jimmy felt funny

then the nut came gushing
i jumped up got dressed and start pushing
’cause i thought the b*tch broke my d*ck
’cause i was still young doing dumb sh*t

at 17 got my first volkswagon
and mastered the life-long art of dragging
to the women in college
hung out with the og’s and got some street knowledge

breaking in cars and all that
hitting punk fools with a baseball bat
f*cking at a real fast rate
till they said that i might not graduate

then i said, “f*ck the dumb sh*t
’cause pops’ll f*ck me up quick”
and things continued

so i start rapping about sh*t i been through
and i got real good
now i look at all the kids in the neighborhood
trying to be baby macks
doing sh*t that i did seven years back

going through a stage
but before they can grow up they on the front page
and they mommas is having a fit
’cause they died young doing dumb sh*t
