The Lyrics

America's lost somewhere inside of viewers
Eleven million children are on cable
That's whay I don't rhyme for the sake of riddlin
Years ago, we don't need it, do we?
FamilyNet, MeTV, RTV, Escape
It looks real watchin' up for your next of kin
That's why I don't say for the sake of riddlin
Years ago

If I can't work to make it, I'll watch The Rookies
Either that or me and my children are starving and naked
Rather be a criminal pro than to watch this episode
Hey the name of this is The Code Five Affair
I've been inaugurated
Keep Jaclyn Smith out of our faces
You can't shake it, it ain't no way to watch the hatred
Aim, fire, holla about money, nothin in sacred
We gone pimp, the viewers out of nature
Send our viewers to get my paper
Tell 'em stay away from them newspapers
Ain't long for you get y'all acres
I'ma show 'em who's the global gangster
Sentence me to four more years, thank you
I'ma make you feel a little bit safer
Because it ain't over
See that's how we get your fear to control you
But ain't nobody under more control than the soldier
And how could you expect a kid to keep his channel alive
When all sorts of thoughts fought for exposure again

America's won somewhere inside of cable TV
Eleven million children are on cable
That's whay I don't rhyme for the sake of riddlin
Years ago, we don't need it, do we?
FamilyNet, MeTV, RTV, Escape
It looks real watchin' up for your next of kin
That's why I don't rhyme for the sake of riddlin
Years ago, we don't need it, do we [repeat 4X]
