Nappy Roots - Welcome To The Show Lyrics

[Verse 1 - Skinny DeVille]
They say success is the best revenge, tell a friend
keep 'em close like a enemy, invest to win
safeless, the necessary, leave the rest to them
loose lips sink boats, try your best to swim
captain of your ship, do ya best and grin
never let 'em see you sweat the stress again
and make a new direction, take ya next of kin
out the trap, it's called life--make the best of it

[Verse 2 - Fishscales]
Well it's the F-I-S-H S-C-A-L-E-S
you can find me rollin' hella sess
I keep a smile cause I never stress
I'm gettin' love in Kentucky from Paducah back to Somerset
and yeah I'm country I don't run from that
I got a catalogue full of 16s say I come from there
and this is me all day, I'm never clockin in'
just wanna say thank y'all for just stoppin' in

Welcome to the show, welcome to the show, Welcome to the show [x4]

[Verse 3 - Big V]
Dear God, let them hear me and see you
thanks heavenly for what you allow me to do
all things are possible when I go through you
thanks for the caterin' and real good food
thanks for the DJ and 5-man crew
bless him for the fans, God, you the man
well, as I bring this to a close
bless me with a feel for the real good (HOES!!!)

[Verse 4 - B. Stille]
Uh, I rock the, v-neck tees, wrinkly jeans
old people askin' me "do you sleep in them jeans?"
I reply, "no sir or ma'am, this is the style,"
big smile, I ain't felt like this in a while
see the young'ns on the block, tell 'em stay in that school
gangbangin', hangin' out, smokin', drinkin' ain't cool
show you how to be a leader, just follow your dreams
and always vow to keep it Nappy by any means

Dude, dude, you guys are phenomenal dude...
I promise...I mean, my sister loves you guys...
I joined this frat because of you guys...
Fuckin' awesome, man...
Nappy fuckin' Roots

[Verse 5 - Ron Clutch]
The world's a stage, just tryin' to play my part
keep my feet on earth and still parlay with the stars
yeah I be spacin' out, vacation to Mars
but when I return, I come back with the burn
what you learn? Sometimes you have to take it that far
it's more important how you finish than the way that you start
life is bittersweet, even taste a lil' tart
let you make the situation, it don't make who you are
you can't throw in your hand, might as well play with your cards
you win some, you lose some, don't take it to heart
take it to the next level, take it way out the chart
you don't wanna leave here without makin' your mark
bet your light shine, find your way out the dark
surround yourself with good energy so you can stay charged
stay on the cuttin' edge, make sure your blades stay sharp
art imitates life, life imitates art...

  11. Sarah Beth

    I have 3 black aunts, 3 white aunts and 1 uncle in Kentucky. My daddys siblings. #TheMoreYouKnow #WhatNoOneKnewAboutMyDaddy my daddy was from E-town. It's why my middle name is Elizabeth and why I have Flint tattooed on my left forearm, for my Cherokee Indian family in Kentucky and because it was my daddys middle name and my great grandfathers name. Did you know if you strike flint against magnesium it throws sparks?

    It's why I told my Hispanic friend in Cali to not say the N word because it offended me because I have a lot of mixed family and my girl Naughty thought it was funny and then she brought the first and fifth crips up in my house like listen to how funny this little white girl talks and I was like, I'm not white, I'm peachy..... California is so segregated. :/

    Nappy Roots you have blessed my life. From "Aw Naw" being on every summer mix I've ever made from 8 years old until CDs expired at around 19...from Boys and Girls Club trips growing up listening to y'all later on....flash forward to when y'all let me and others dance on stage at Wild Buffalo in Bellingham Fall 2012. You will always be phenomenal in my mind and heart.

  41. Kenneth,joe Harris

    I got in a car with a white guy named Rob Peck and he this was the 1st song he threw on .... we have been cool since . Good music like this brings good people together no matter the race .

  64. St23Vincent

    I can’t speak for the people that grew up rich but I can honestly say I had a great country upbringing. Hella family reunions, birthday parties, riding bikes to the store, etc. All the cousins staying at grandma house while our parents went to the club on Friday. Sleeping 4 to a bed...2 at the foot 2 at the head. Good ass times. Having money is cool and it gives me an opportunity to give my kids the things I didn’t have growing up but it also divided the fuck out of my family.

  89. Chris Carnelli

    Well you are only poor because of your own actions and yes we do wonder why things act this way cant say it's due to being broke there is a job for everyone if you try or you can be one of the people who sit back and blame the fact they have no money and life sucks on everything they can expect for there own actions we can all cry poverty but if you step back and look at it from a distance it's our own fault now sometimes bad things happen and we lose our job and go broke and yes that's a tough pill to swallow but you can sit and dwell and make it worse or you can get off your ass and get the fuck out there in the world and say yes I can mother fuckers and make things better
