Greetings boys and girls

(Greetings boys and girls)

My name is Petey P.

(My name is Petey P.)

Kendrick's childhood imaginary friend (that's right, that's right, that's right)

I am your neighbor (I am your neighbor)

And I'd like to welcome you to good kid, m.A.A.d city (good kid, m.A.A.d city)

So grab your cartoons and cereal (and sing)

Your pop guns (and sing) and fireworks and sing along

 

When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million

Spend it all in front of the county building

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane yeah

(Sing along kids, sing along)

When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million

Spend it all in front of the county building

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane yeah

 

(Kendrick, you remember that one time when we was...)

 

I've been waiting on this day since Dr. Dre and Pac

Was on Rosecrans in that burger stand at 95

People staring at 'em in amazement

Reservations at the Days Inn

we was living out a hotel at the time

Breakfast, lunch and dinner chicken from Kentucky Fried

Mama babysitting Section 8 vouchers to move

With nothing else to lose but a burger flippin' job

Close my eyes inside the swap meet and imagine this a mansion

Gold ballroom AK-47 dancing

Howling at the moon was a pack of hungry babies

Hope you feed 'em soon bite your back you die of rabies

Everyday we pray to eat at the table of Sizzlers

But never made that visit, if better days was on its way

Then it made the decision, to make the wrong turn

So for now we heat this skillet so this canned food can burn

(Oh yeah I remember that, it was the ravioli with the hot sauce in it, right?)

 

When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million (Am I right?)

Spend it all in front of the county building (oh)

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane yeah

(Don't forget to sing along by the way, sing along)

When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million

Spend it all in front of the county building

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane yeah

 

And all the ghetto children in the world say that's my car

All the ghetto boys say that's my car

All the ghetto girls say that's my car

When we grow up, when we grow up

Ghetto children in the world say that's my car

All the ghetto boys say that's my car

All the ghetto girls say that's my car

When we grow up, when we grow up

 

(Nig-nigga you remember the smoke and the burning buildings and shit?)

 

Couple stolen T.V.'s and a seat belt for my safety (uh huh)

Played the passenger I think it's five years after eighty-

seven do the math ' 92 don't you be lazy (I won't)

Looking out the window, notice all the essentials

of a block party that stop for a second then it rekindle

Like a flame from a trick candle everybody got dental

Insurance 'cause we 'bout to floss

you get that couch I sent you?

I heard that from a block away probably had credentials

of a scholar but shit not today

them Dayton spokes was his to take

Refrigerators, barbecue pits and Jordan kicks

They did invasions while helicopters recorded it

Hello Mi-Mister Miyagi I want them ten woo-woofers

Say that you got me if not I'll dig in your drawer for it

The swap meet was the bull's eye like Tauruses

Murder was the melody you should know what the chorus is

Papa you really telling me we can just get some more of it if we run out?

He said lil nigga today the poor is rich

Don't tell your mom that you seen a Molotov bomb

If she ask just know you have to lie and son don't forget

Bitches ain't shit, hoes ain't neither

Niggas gon' snitch watch the company you keeping

And one day you'll put money in the ghetto when you got it

Rather than having to hustle off these Rodney King riots

(That's right the mothafuckin' Rodney King

you just put your daddy on Bullis Rd.)

 

When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million (that's crazy)

Spend it all in front of the county building

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane yeah

(Don't forget still sing along kids, still sing along)

When we grow up we gon' go and get us a million (Please sing)

Spend it all in front of the county building

Blow it like Coltrane, blow it like Coltrane yeah
