Saigon - Oh Yeah (Our Babies) Lyrics




[LeAlan Jones]
"I remember one time I was over at my Auntie house
spending the night. And we playin' Super Nintendo.
I hear this lady: 'Yo, I heard you been looking for me, nigga'
Then she just -- boom-boom-boom-boom-boom!
She let off about eight shots. Then I heard the other gun fire off
and we were just still there playing there, like nothin' happened.
And then Vietnam, them people came back crazy. I (live) in Vietnam
So what you think I'ma be if I live in it and they just went and visited?"

[Saigon]
Suckers could not survive without philoso-phy
When somebody dies, you see why I'm not suprised?
Had a plot to rise since I looked in the doctor's eyes
Since I started drinkin milk through what's homogenized
I would strive with or without a pops to provide
Moms still cries 'cause she fell for a crock of lies
I try to teach her to fight her fears
I try to teach her to wipe her tears
Don't worry, shit gon' be aight this year
I'm at the top of my game, just watch for my name
Better off poppin my brain than poppin my chain (dang!)
I claim king without droppin a thing
When they ask if I'm the best, I reminisce of the bing and think...

[LeAlan Jones]
When I was ten, I seen my first automatic weapon
A Glock Nine -- two clips.

[Lloyd Newman]
I seen all kinds of guns -- .44, .22, (Techs!) Techs. I saw rifles.

[Jones:] Mac 10, Mac 11.
[Newman:] Living around here. You hear shooting all the time.

[Saigon]
Damn..
The drama's pitiful, lil' niggaz is homicid-ical
Couple meals ago, shorty was eatin through his umbilical
Now he feels he unkillable, shit is all amazing
The wrong altercation'll leave his ass with a long abrasion
I try to make my life de-focal through rhymes
These niggaz do vocal booth crimes, I shot niggaz multiple times
You sold a few dimes, but when you rappin, you the crack king
I sold it to whites when you thought it was just a black thing
I'm filled with this realness, rappers happen to lack it
I'm flabbergasted you got a platinum plaque for that wack shit
All the real gangstas, they on their way to bein dead or in jail
They don't make records to sell

[Lloyd Newman]
I asked my father, Chill, what his best memories of my mother are.

['Chill']
Me and her have fun, putting our feet in the water together
We were sober then... but once we started gettin high..
Them memories gone... They gone.

[Newman:] Why are you drinking?
[Chill:] I don't understand why I'm drinking.
[Newman:] Do you think you're gonna stop?
[Chill:] Yeah, I'm going to rehab, and take care of myself.
[Newman:] What do you drink?
[Chill:] I drink about two or three pints of wine a day.
But it ain't helping me, ain't doin nothin' but killing me.
Don't people understand it's destroying you?
[Newman:] If it's destroying you, why do you still drink?
Do you think you've been a good father?
[Chill:] Yes, I have, to the best capability I could.
[Newman:] I have no further questions.

[Saigon]
The drama's pitiful, lil' niggaz is homicid-ical
Couple meals ago, shorty was eatin through his umbilical
Now he feels he unkillable, shit is all amazing
The wrong altercation'll leave his ass with a long abrasion
I try to make my life de-focal through rhymes
These niggaz do vocal booth crimes, I shot niggaz multiple times
You sold a few dimes, but when you rappin, you the crack king
I sold it to whites when you thought it was just a black thing
I'm filled with this realness, rappers happen to lack it
I'm flabbergasted you got a platinum plaque for that wack shit
All the real gangstas, they on their way to bein dead or in jail
They don't make records to sell
They don't make records to sell
They don't make records to sell
They don't make records to sell
They don't make records to sell
They don't make records to sell

    the interview with his father at the end puts this song on another level, anybody know the singer?

  39. Omarr Daylaq

    One of his best best best songs ever. Much love & respect.

  40. Jessie Wald Photo

    Please dont compare living in ANY US city to Vietnam during the war. I think thats an insult to the Vietnamese people and the soldiers (although they did many horrible things). Vietnam was WAY WAY WAY worse than anything people in the US have experienced. Where is the agent orange, napalm, airstrikes, burning alive, raping ect ect and I can go on.

    I sympathize with the boy but he is still off with his comparison.

  41. jonnybravo96

    this song is insane, wow...just wow, saigon is one of the best !! <3 RESPECT FROM NORWAY !

  42. marshawn c

    Saigon went in on this one. Love the video, love the song. One!

  43. Adrian Neech

    Good song. Are those interviews real or what? If so id like to see them. Very powerful and vivid

  44. Mass Rcom

    Vietnam

  45. iffy D

    This song deserves more views. Sick song.

  46. transversalpsyc

    i agree, great intro and great song, but "the hood" is not comparable to vietnam. not even close. where i'm from has the highest murder rate in the U.S and its not even close to what some experienced during that war. listen to uncommon valor-jedi mind tricks. that song is chilling... this is still a great song not hating

  47. dc towna

    HAHAHAHAHA

  48. cudencuden

    im also flabbergasted that other rappers got the platinum plaque for their wack shit

  49. Chris H

    Damn Radio One and BET really need to pump this cat, LOUD!!

  50. cignagaborden

    Saigon is the TRUTH!

  51. jonnybravo96

    damn this song iss soo good

  52. jonnybravo96

    and jay z is garbage anyway, so why u hatin ?

  53. jonnybravo96

    fuck you, saigon got hes own flow idiot

  54. jonnybravo96

    haha man , why even compare them ? sagion is waaayyy better that jay z u cant compare them cuz saigon is a long way out of jay z leauge

  55. jonnybravo96

    wrod man, awesome song, one of my favouritt songs from saigon :)

  56. jonnybravo96

    ofc he hes, he owns him so much, he goes much much harder, jay z aint nuthin. agree with you man, hip hop is about lyrcism and poetry and flow, not swag.... ;) sad the game is as it is today

  57. dondizzle4shizzle

    You'll get over it. Takes time.

  58. Jackson McFall

    He has a Texas Longhorn hoodie on!! automatically my favorite!... jk, He was the best anyway (:

  59. DavidHill302

    That statement is fucking preposterous, I'm a Saigon fan too, but he will never make an album better than Reasonable Doubt and Jay Z has countless classics.

  60. RA-KEMET a RBA

    Shit was all the way fire.Jammin it now anticipating part 2 and my first big pay day in a year.

  61. Nick Evans

    Honestly i stopped jammin sai when dis album dropped cuz some of the songs just didnt vibe right but dis junt right hear is classic Saigiddy

  62. S. Stanislav

    Modern day classic...just beautiful

  63. marcdivine87

    CHECK OUT -----------> Marc Divine - Out There (official video) swedish hip hop!!!

  64. Dreadful Controversy

    I swear the background singing is Danny Boy.

    But, this is one of the realest songs I've ever heard.

  65. Keizer Soze

    (*WISHFUL THINKING*) .. But If I ever HIT THE LOTTO or ever come into some MONEY ... I would DEFINITELY break SAIGON off with some as APPRECIATION for his MUSIC

  66. Simonas Lunys

    Who is Jay Z ?

  67. Danny Wade

    my mind just got blown

  68. Meffius100

    when i arrive with my entrouage !!!

  69. John Rambo

    Im right that saigon raps a bit how tupac ?

  70. mrnil82

    you cant compare saigon and jay z they are two different rapers #Norway

  71. Darrell Robinson

    Besides the great rhymes Saigon is spitting, SHOUT TO SAIGON FOR WEARING THE UT LONGHORN IN THE VIDEO! AUSTIN, TEXAS PLEASE STAND UP!

  72. illthought

    The dramas pitiful, little niggas in homicidical, couple meals ago shorty was eatin' through his umbilical, now he feel he un-killable, shit is all amazing, the wrong altercation will leave his ass with a long abrasion... Still remember the first time I heard them bars. DAMN.

  73. SageofSorrow

    im sorry...the intro with the little kid talking about "living in vietnam" has to be one of the most chilling and brilliant intros I have EVER heard in a song. Also the short interludes(in replacement of a hook)of the boy telling his life story is fucking amazing! I rarely hear a song that I fall in love with within a few seconds of hearing it(Nas' One Mic comes to mind) but this song is on that list. Never new Saigon was this good. Very impressive song

  74. Jay $

    this is fucking incredible

  75. msoviet409

    I've never seen a talented rapper who's so caring and so mature. He's awesome and very rare indeed!.

  76. kyle87t

    Like if you find yourself sitting here repeatedly clicking the like button until you get carpel tunnel syndrome after listening to this song.

  77. stopkillinghiphop

    Nice to see everyone aint stuck on benny banks , sneakbo shit atm !! Bless BS3 Bristol !

  78. unrequited2

    Saigon is better than ANY rapper that's currently making "music" for the top 100. He knows what's up and he ain't afraid to tell others the truth.

  79. stopkillinghiphop

    amazing....

  80. thanasi100

    Thank you for making this song..

  81. K-Milz Youdontknow

    ''they don't make record to sell''

  82. Kesha B

    Saigon...one of the realest rappers alive, NO bubble gum bull!!! Check out my song "Rain" which talks about real life pain and struggle....

  83. Damir Chore

    ofcourse, but it's impossible that every rapper be so well rated, but nowdays rated rappers are nothing, thats why I listen to this rappers who are underrated, because thay still spitt real stuff.. ;)

  84. Ronie 211

    Saigon... The Best Rapper about today... Real Music!

  85. sneakerking 10

    THIS SHIT SO HARD!!!!! DA REALISHIT I HEARD IN YEARS.....

  86. illriginalized

    Keeping it real... real life experiences on the mic.. will always reign over the fakes and the lies!

  87. jusk

    Strange that you compare him to Jay-Z.
    What could be the reason for him to wear that Texas sweatshirt?

  88. Pepperjack Cheese

    His voice is SLIGHTLY like Jay Z's but this man definitely has his own flow, which is smoother and more complex.

  89. Markus -

    much more better !

  90. Smoking Beats

    @SAIGONthayardfathe please can you upload the instrumental version !!!!!!!! please ! beat is so fresh

  91. Smoking Beats

    who is jay z ? :p

  92. Smoking Beats

    CAN SOMEBODY MAKE A INSTRUMENTAL VERSION OF THIS!!!! BEAT IS SO ILLLLL!

  93. dondizzle4shizzle

    Jay Z hasn't changed. Saigon is just better than Jay Z could ever dream to be.

  94. Aleksander

    @dondizzle4shizzle better than jay z right now YES
    better than old jay z NO

  95. Dramma Official

    biggggg upppppppp!!!!!!!!!

  96. Ktrxfegra

    @Abdelice Naaaah that was bad

  97. Abdelice

    Saigon is not underrated ... Underrated is Saigon

  98. M T

    I have never heard a bad song of his.

  99. ShinbrigTV
