eastside tales lyrics – b.o.b

eastside tales

[intro]
shouts out to all my hoods across the a gettin it in
my eastside n*gg*z, my westside n*gg*z
big shouts to the northside (“dj spinz, f*ck n*gg*!”)

[chorus]
i could go on and on for days and days and song for song yeah
{“let me tell you all about it”}
i could go on and on for days and days and song for song yeah
{“let me tell you all about it”}
it’s ’bout that eastside tale, yeah i can tell you ’bout that eastside tale
{“let me tell you all about it”}
it’s ’bout that eastside tale, let me tell you ’bout another eastside tale
{“let me tell you all about it”}

[interlude]
(“m… l… k!!”)
let me say again! you’ll never know that no matter what song
what the concept is or whatever, i’m tryin to keep it 100
so i may not be givin you the story but the story got the truth in it
you feel me? (“scream!!”)

[b.o.b]
oh yeah, believe it, i can tell many secrets
but the mo’ i talk about them that’s just the mo’ that you see ’em
yup – i’m a believer, not sayin i’m religious
but i see somethin wrong with how we livin in my city
why everybody from decatur wanna be a sanger?
or be an entertainer, or to be rich and famous?
you see us on tv, you sit for hours and you stare
not sayin that we gods, but that’s what they try to make us

[chorus]

[interlude]
and like i said – even though i’m tryin to get to paid
i ain’t fin’ to do what they want me to do dawg
realer than that i’m from decatur
decatur’s a city that’s gon’ be on yo’ mind soon as you think about it

[b.o.b]
h*ll yeah i’m from the eastside
ain’t sayin it just to get the streets behind me
ain’t like slum, but i know where i’m from
so i spit it for the slums and the street society
it’s yo’ block that i’m beatin down
so that real sh*t’s what i’m speakin ’bout
now i can probably, tell you a lie
to tell the stories about people’s problems
but everything that i got to say is
contagious like [?]
don’t play ball but i’m atlanta’s bravest
so if i’m fake then it’s not today
now i can sit up here and lie up in my rhyme
and tell you everything is fine but y’all ain’t blind – nah!

[chorus]
