ICE CUBE


Laugh Now, Cry Later Lyrics

[Ice Cube]
Uh-huh, understand this
I don't give a fuck about what y'all talkin' about
I ain't tryin' to hear none of that shit
Nigga I'm a do what I wanna do
When I wanna do it, how I wanna do it
And you better hope I don't do it to you
Now, I don't care what you got to say
I don't care what they got to say
Nigga I'm grown
Let me tell you a little somethin' about me

I was born not to give a fuck, wanna drink, get your cup
Turn it up, throw it up, take the world, blow it up
Somebody slow it up, roll it up, smoke it up
My own can't keep me from loc'n up
One ear out the other, one man out to smother
The neighborhood, that left me here without my brother
You undercovers and you dirty muthafuckers
In the hood, that still fuck without rubbers
Club hop, bar hop, car shop, nail shop
To the mall, spend it all, why not
What bills, what rent, don't know what's spent
Why you care, do you work for the government?

[Chorus]
Fuck it homey, I'm a laugh now and cry later
Get your paper we can laugh now and cry later
All you players you can laugh now and cry later
Investigators let you laugh now and cry later

[Ice Cube]
See I'm a product of this urban decay
A nigga dyin' for tomorrow, but live for today
A nigga lie steal and borrow, and cheating's okay
Don't you tell these muthafuckers that my name is O'Shea
Cause I'm a look up my baby's credit, let him regret it
7 months old he's already got a jail record
I'm the one to blame, put it in my mama name
She's not a drama queen, but I got the bling bling
I need the watch and the bracelet and the earrings
I need you all to show up at my hearings
Tell the judge I'm a nice guy, good guy
And I'm a play the sad face when he look nigga

[Chorus]
Fuck it homey, I'm a laugh now and cry later
Get your paper we can laugh now and cry later
All you players you can laugh now and cry later
Investigators let you laugh now and cry later

[Interlude: repeat 2X]
"The number you are calling was lost, and cannot be called back"
"Your last call return service"

[Ice Cube]
It's fucked-up, that y'all won't answer my calls
Tell mom, at least she can send some drawers
These walls, make y'all forget about me
I'm comin home, in 2033
But that's irrelevant, did you get the mail I sent
What I tell a bitch, you better stay celibate
She start lyin' to me, tell me who she ain't fuckin'
Never tell me that my homeboys ain't nothin'
Bun in the oven, it belong to my cousin
Got the nerve, to tell me that you really love me
What?
I'm a get the ass when a nigga make parole
Hit her with my cane, cause a nigga gray and old

[Chorus]
Fuck it homey, I'm a laugh now and cry later
Get your paper we can laugh now and cry later
All you players you can laugh now and cry later
Investigators let you laugh now and cry later

[Outro: Ice Cube]
Man, it ain't right man
Y'know y'all ain't doin me right man
A nigga tryin' to do right man
Y'know I'm tryin to change my life man, y'know?
I done found the Lord while I'm in here, y'know?
I I'm tryin to do right now, I mean
Y'know I'm sorry for everythang
That I, I I mean y'know
That's fucked-up how y'all doin me man
Y'all niggas could at least send me somethin

"Alright, first four guys, let's go... lock it up."
