Ready or Not (Lyrics) | Fugees

A born again hooligan only to be king again.






Lauryn Hill:

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and take it slowly

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and make you want me


Wyclef Jean:

Now that I escape, sleepwalker awake

Those who could relate know the world ain't cake

Jail bars ain't golden gates

Those who fake, they break

When they meet their 400 pound mate

If I could rule the world

Everyone would have a gun in the ghetto of course

When giddy-upin' on their horse

I Kick a rhyme drinkin' moonshine

I pour a sip on the concrete, for the deceased

But no don't weep, Wyclef's in a state of sleep

Thinkin' 'bout the robbery that I did last week

Money in the bag, banker looked like a drag

I wanna play with pellet guns from here to Baghdad

Gun blast, think fast, I think I'm hit

My girl pinched my hips to see if I still exist

I think not, I'll send a letter to my friends

A born again hooligan only to be king again


Lauryn Hill:

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and take it slowly

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and make you want me


Lauryn Hill:

I play my enemies like a game of chess, where I rest

No stress

If you don't smoke sess, lest

I must confess, my destiny's manifest

In some Goretex and sweats I make treks like I'm homeless

Rap orgies with Porgy and Bess

Capture your bounty like Elliot Ness, yes

Bless you if you represent the Fu

But I'll hex you with some witch's brew if you're Doo Doo Voodoo

I can do what you do, easy, believe me

Frontin' niggas give me hee-bee-gee-bees

So while you're imitating Al Capone

I'll be Nina Simone

And defecating on your microphone


Lauryn Hill:

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and take it slowly

You can't run away

From these styles I got, oh baby, hey baby

'Cause I got a lot, oh yeah

And anywhere you go

My whole crew gonna know

Oh baby, hey baby

You can't hide from the block, oh no


Pras

Ready or not, refugees takin' over

The Buffalo soldier, dread-lock rasta

On the twelfth hour, fly by in my bomber

Crews run for cover, now they're under pushin' up flowers

Superfly true lies, do or die

Toss me high only puff la

With my crew from lakay

I refugee from Guantanamo Bay

Dance around the border like I'm Cassius Clay

Yes, sir


Lauryn Hill:

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and take it slowly

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and make you want me


Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and take it slowly

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and make you want me


Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and take it slowly

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide

Gonna find you and make you want me
