GAME OF BONEZ


Man I’m about to drop it on you fools like the Snyder Cut.
Shout out to all the Variety Show fam. Tobal, Seth,
and my man Tim aka ‘The GGT’ on the track
…’bout to let the monkey out on this one
man - let’s go


VERSE 1:
No you’re not really ready/
go and pocket your celly/
cuz I’m droppin’ this jelly/
good god - is it smelly/
gotta take the plunge, try not to flop on your belly/
gotta get at these kids, but not like R to the Kelly/
my father would tell me “Hijo - ponte las pilas”/
always with a pen and pad, see me sportin’ my FILAs/
through the hallways/
writing verses all day’
trying to get my songs played/
I’ve dropped mixtapes that was on tape/
what you know about mixtapes on a two-sided cassette/
man - try to respect/
the mind of a vet/
twenty plus years on the mic and still coming at you all live & direct/
man, how you forget to get back to the basics/
rainbow dreads over them toddler faces/
Joyner changed the game droppin’ ‘I’m Not A Racist’/
beats, rhymes, and life - man, what a combination/
resentment and bitterness is commonplace in/
the era of Trump… Donald’s nation/
D.N.R. … let’s Do Not Repeat…/
the mistakes of the past that you all can see/
social media making people fall asleep/
the dragon in your house saying “acknowledge me!…”/
“…before I get so big that I swallow you…”/
“…and make you compost the next time I drop a deuce”/
what up GGT? …and howdy do?/
hit the Variety Show and drop a bar or two/
that’s how a mad scientist of an artist do/
I’ve stumbled and fumbled, and yes - I’ve fallen too/
so go and find you a phone booth, and get your cape on/
while I drop these bars for you to meditate long/
and just in case I forgot to thank y’all/
I appreciate you and I’m deeply grateful/
…let’s go…


HOOK:
Let’s play a game/
(…lets’ play a game…)
the Game of Bonez/
(…the game of Bonez…)
you call me names/
(…you call me names…)
it’s sticks and stones/
(…just sticks and stones…)
You tried to break me/
(…you broke me…)
and you break my bones/
(…but what don’t… what don’t…)
but what don’t kill me…/
(…guess what…)
…just makes me strong/
… …
Let’s play a game/
(…lets’ play a game…)
the Game of Bonez/
(…the game of Bonez…)
you call me names/

it’s sticks and stones/

You tried to break me/
(…you broke me…)
and you break my bones/
(…but what don’t… what don’t…)
but what don’t kill me…/
(…guess what…)
…let’s get it on/


VERSE 2:
So no holding back/
if only they had/
skills, it’s so sad/
this shit’s in the bag/
and not every teenager listen to trash/
but some are too dumb for that lyrical rap/
skipping’ the mumble, skippin’ the trash/
skip all these younginz who twist up the facts/
and all of you old headz who live in the past/
so scared of change that you pissin’ your pants/
one day we’ll wise up and be living off plants/
no more living creatures in Auschwitz camps/
maybe we make it, and maybe we don’t/
elections are jokes/
everyday is a vote/
we live in the age/
of google, it’s strange/
humanity’s long overdue for some change/
got love for my fam, and it’s true everyday/
I don’t have to approve what they do, what they say/
who could have made a better prediction?/
I do and I say what I said in ‘Persistence’/
I get on the mic and let go of it all/
better to fall than not show up at all/
do what you love in two thousand whatever/
two thousand forever/
group thousands of letters/
and thousands of words/
in a powerful verse/
never doubt what you’re worth/
put it down for this Earth/
put a fist in the planet/
no wishes or magic/
be grateful for the things that you have, and…/
…never give up - c’est la vie/
the simple life has been great to me/
you gotta pay to play, nobody play for free/
man, celebrity ain’t what it’s made to be/
so get that Private Fame, just wait and see/
going back to school with straight As and Bs/
…and that’s that…


BRIDGE:
No hay de queso… no mas de papa…
no hay de queso… no mas de papa…
(es muy caliente)

He’s a hot potato…
…hot, hot potato…
