The Lyrics

Bone Thugs 'Tha Crossroads' is my favourite song - then some sixteen years old butchered it up!
Bone, bone, bone, bone, bone, bone, bone, bone, bone,
So tell me watcha gonna do?
When ya can't think up a tune?
When talent misses you?
When talent misses you?
So tell me watcha gonna do?
When you sample a B-side?
When talent misses you?
When talent misses you?

Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better

So can't we write and say,
We're gonna make it some day,
You got a song,
So we gonna erase,
All of the old verses,
What we can't say,
These lyrics thing,
Just rewrite we may,
And when it comes,
They'll think 'one of a kind'
But before this,
Bone Thugs was in some mind,
And they will hold them,
To the end of the line
Want all this,
We'll nick a good song's base line

So what we gonna do,
When the chorus is the same,
Try and rip off,
Just for a glimpse of fame,
"Didn't mean to do it,"
Now you're ashamed,
You didn't want to butcher,
Just trying not to sound lame
When you rip off 'Tha Crossroads'
Xand's gonna know,
Gonna hunt ya down,
Cover his fav song - oh no.
Slice up slice down,
Turn the blade around,
DOn't care if it's good,
Bone Thugs rules around...

mmm...and I say
and I say
and I say
and I say
Everyday, everyday,
Everyday, everyday,
And I say
And I say
And I say
And I say
We love Layzie
We love Krayzie

The...
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better


Original was better...
Better, better.
Original was better.
Original was better...
Better, better.
Original was better.

Who's that?
Voice is a pain?
Copying styles,
In the Bone Thugs maine.
Why take that groups plain?
Got no talent mate.

Livin on the strees everyday,
Westlife,
People walking past,
Saying you need a life,
But you don't really care,
Not gonna get a wife,
You're gonna be a one-hit,
Never be seen again.
You know it's your fault,
Crossroads turned out that way.
Bone Thug fans care,
You don't hear what they say,
And the way it is now,
Is the way it's gonna stay,
Bizzy, Wish and Flesh first coined 'hope and pray'

mmm...and I say
and I say
and I say
and I say
Everyday, everyday,
Everyday, everyday,
And I say
And I say
And I say
And I say
We love Layzie
We love Krayzie

The...
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better
The...
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better
Original was better, better better

Original was better...
Better, better.
Original was better.
Original was better...
Better, better.
Original was better.
