From the recording IT AINT ALL BAD


Lyrics by Kevin West

I remember when I was a little kid
Tragedy introduced me to a life of sin
So I started acting up when I was only five
I lit up in preschool and got all the other kids high
And now I’m still smokin’ on that still smokin’ blount
Still hoping for a better life that may never come
Runnin’ straight ahead and fast tryin’ to escape my past
Headed straight for disaster don’t know how long I can last
Everyday I’m that much closer doin’ my best to make the most of
What the hell am I supposed to do I’m looking out for you know who
As time goes by I write more and more songs
About how bad life can be but don’t get me wrong
I still got my people and I even got a girl
That comes by every now and then to rock my world
Don’t worry about me I’ll be just fine
Sometimes I get it right

*It aint all bad Havin’ nothin’ but a good time to help you forget about
The life you’ve had That’s how you make it right
Out on the Ave. Sometimes you get high cause you’ve gotta get by
So it aint all bad livin this kinda life

It aint all bad livin’ this kinda life the kinda life where things don’t always go right
My roof is leaking my A C is broke that’s why I’m hot as FUCK and my SHIT’S all soaked
But I’m the kinda guy who sees the bright side still free water and a smaller electric bill
Life is life so why complain you’ll drive yourself insane

I walked in the door I was standing in the dark
Seems the man came by and shut the power of
So I lit up a candle and a little something else
To light my way and enlighten myself
I grabbed a pen and paper started writing this song
That’s what I do when things go wrong
Its either that or grab a gun and start shooting everyone
Even though it sounds like fun I don’t hurt no one
Life is hard but why ask why I just feel lucky to be alive
After all the things that I have seen like living in a bad dream
But every now and then I wake up and smile
Light up puff down get high and get wild
I just keep smoking never shed a tear
Why be bitter after all these years
Don’t worry about me ill be just fine
Sometimes I get it right
