lyrics

[Verse 1]:
Sitting down here, in a one room shack.
So many coloured shadows, creepin’ out the cracks.
Pass me that bottle, cut me some slack,
cos things couldn’t get rough you took a sander to my back.

[Chorus 1]:
It don’t come white, it don’t come black.
So many shades of grey and thats where I’m at.
It don’t come white, it don’t come black.
So many shades of grey and thats where I’m at.

Got the goods on me, got the goods on you..

[Verse 2]:
If you could find me, by the old oak tree,
then won’t you sit right down and see what you can see.
A little old bird, a little old bee,
one said to the other it sure sounds nice to me.

Don’t complicate it, don’t act the fool,
cos what a price you’ll pay if you don’t play it cool.
Don’t complicate it (bv: complication), don’t act the fool (bv: your just not the one),
cos what a price you’ll pay if you don’t play it cool.

[Chorus]:
It don’t come white, and it don’t come black.
So many shades of grey and that’s where I’m at.
It don’t come white, and it don’t come black.
So many shades of grey and that’s where I’m at.

[Verse 3]:
If you got a problem on the inside, its time to let it out.
If it aint broke don’t fix it, thats what im about.
Living from bottle to bottle, and hand to mouth.
Life short changed me, so I short changed myself.

[Reprise]:
Short changed myself today for the night it slipped away from myself yeah.
[skat]
gunna lick it back again.
just keep it cool and make it simple Aiiight!
