They Reminisce Over You (Single Version) - Pete Rock & CL Smooth

Written by:Dj Pete Rock

 

I reminisce I reminisce

I reminisce I reminisce

 

I reminisce I reminisce

 

I reminisce I reminisce

Uh I reminisce I reminisce

Yeah I reminisce I reminisce

I reminisce I reminisce

I reminisce I reminisce

I reminisce for a spell or shall I say think back

22 years ago to keep it on track

The birth of a child on the 8th of October

A toast but my granddaddy came sober

Countin' all the fingers and the toes

Now I suppose you hope the little black boy grows huh

18 years younger than my mama

But I really got beatings 'cause the girl loved drama

In single parenthood there I stood

By the time she was 21 had another one

This one's a girl let's name her Pam

Same father as the first but you don't give a d**n

Irresponsible plain not thinking

Papa said chill but the brother keep winking

Still he won't down you or tear out your hide

On your side while the baby maker slide

But mama got wise to the game

The youngest of five kids hon here it is

After 10 years without no spouse

Momma's gettin' married in the house

Listen positive over negative for the women and master

Mother queen's risin' a chapter

Deja vu tell you what I'm gonna do

When they reminisce over you my God

My God

 

It's so

 

Yeah so lovely

That's how we like to do it in the 90's

 

Pete rock C L smooth comin' atcha

When I date back I recall a man off the family tree

My right hand poppa doc I see

Took me from a boy to a man

So I always had a father

When my biological didn't bother

Taking care of this so who am I to bicker

Not a bad ticker but I'm clocking pop's liver

But you can never say that his life is through

5 kids at 21 believe he got a right too

Here we go while I check the scene

With the Portugese lover at the age of 14

The same age front page no fuss

But I bet you all your dough they live longer than us

Never been senile that's where you're wrong

But give the man a taste and he's gone

Noddin' off sleep to a jazz tune

I can hear his head banging on the wall

In the next room

I get the pillow and hope I don't wake him

For this man do cuss hear it all in verbatim

Telling me how to raise my boy unless he's taking over

I said pop maybe when you're older

We laughed all night about the hookers at the party

My old man standing yelling good God Almighty

Use your condom take sips of the brew

When they reminisce over you for real

For real baby

 

Like that

 

We for real

 

Comin' atcha

 

In '92

 

Pete rock C L smooth

 

Yeah c'mon hit me

I reminisce so you never forget this

The days of wayback so many bear witness the fitness

Take the first letter out of each word in this joint

Listen close as I prove my point

T to the R uh O Y how did you and I meet

In front of big lou's fighting in the street

But only you saw what took many time to see

I dedicate this to you for believing in me

Rain or shine yes in any weather

My grandmom Pam holds the family together

My uncle Doc's the greatest better yet the latest

If we're talking about a car uncle sterling got the latest

I strive to be live 'cause I got no choice

And run my own business like my aunt Joyce

So Pete rock hit me nuff respect due

 

When they reminisce over you listen

Listen just listen

 

To the funky song

 

As I rock on

 

And that's word is bond

 

I'm not playin'

 

Everybody just coolin'

 

This song we dedicate

 

To the one and only

 

Never be another

 

He was my brother

 

Trouble T roy

It's like that y'all

 

And you don't stop

 

Pete rock and C L smooth for '92

 

And we out

 

Later
