Skee-Lo and some old school music lyrics, I wish

I wish I was little bit taller,
I wish I was a baller,
I wish I had a girl who looked good,
I would call her.
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat,
and a six-four Impala.

I wish I was like six-foot-nine,
So I can get with Leoshi,
Cause she don't know me but yo she's really fine.
You know I see her all the time,
Everywhere I go,
and even in my dreams,
I can scheme a way to make her mine,
Cause I know she's livin phat,
Her boyfriend's tall and he plays ball,
So how am I gonna compete with that?
'Cause when it comes to playing basketball,
I'm always last to be picked,
And in some cases never picked at all,
So I just lean up on the wall,
Or sit up in the bleachers with the rest of the girls who came to watch their men ball.
Dag y'all!

I never understood, black,
Why the jocks get the fly girls,
And me I get the hood rats.
I tell 'em scat, skittle, scabobble,
Got hit with a bottle,
And I been in the hospital,
For talkin' that mess.
I confess it's a shame when you livin' in a city that's the size of a box,
and nobody knows yo' name.
Glad I came to my senses,
Like quick-quick,
got sick-sick,
to my stomach.
Overcome by the thoughts of me and her together,
So when I asked her out,
she said I wasn't her type.

I wish I had a brand-new car,
So far,
I got this hatchback,
And everywhere I go,
I gets laughed at.
And when I'm in my car I'm laid back,
I got an 8-track and a spare tire in the backseat,
But that's flat.
And do you really wanna know what's really whack?
See I can't even get a date,
So what do you think of that?
I heard that prom night is a bomb night,
With the hood rats you can hold tight,
But really tho' I'm a Figaro,
When I'm in my car I can't even get a hello.
Well so many people wanna cruise Crenshaw,
on Sunday.
Well then I'ma have to get in my car and go.
You know I take the 110 until the 105,
Get off at Crenshaw,
tell my homies look alive.
Cause it's hard to survive when your livin' in a concrete jungle,
These girls just keep passin' me by,
She looks fly,
She looks fly
Makes me say my, my, my.

I wish I was a little bit taller y'all
I wish I was a baller...
I wish I was a little bit taller y'all
I wish I was a baller.

Hey, I wish I had my way,
'Cause everyday would be a Friday,
You could even speed on the highway.
I would play ghetto games,
Name my kids ghetto names,
Little Mookie,
Big Al,
Yo, you know that's on the real,
So if you're down on your luck,
Then you should know just how I feel.
Cause if you don't want me around,
See I go simple,
I go easy,
I go Greyhound.
what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down
Ahhhh yes,
ain't that fresh?
Everybody wants to get down like dat.

I wish, I wish, I wish.

On really nice days like today I always tend to hear this song. Somehow, when I heard it today, it made me think of Dasher121. Don't ask why.

Not sure that could be classified as "old skool", as he was a one-hit wonder on MTV.

Old Skool to me is early N.W.A, Ice Cube, Geto Boys, Too $hort and Public Enemy...

No one ever heard from Skee-Lo again...

Darn it... now this song is just running through my head, and you know what, its not the whole song, just the refrain part... but on a lighter note, I have had friends at times tell me this should be a theme song of mine... I am only 5'8 and I always wish I was better at basketball... but... yeah, now I am just rambling. Great song to think of on a gorgeous day RED.
