Hey Hey, I like her, isn’t that how it starts?

Some posts below, I spazzed in rhyme form to vent my feelings at having my heart broken. I said some out of character, inappropriate, and down right prickish and inaccurate things.  For that, and more, I am truly sorry. This apology was inspired by a closer listening and accidental revisiting of Elzhi’s Euro Pass Album; the track of ‘The Transitional Joint’ in particular.

After a ‘public’ diss, which was a mistake in the first place, I should issued a ‘public’ apology. After criticizing my father for simply explaining his misguided actions and not actually apologizing, claiming that it takes a real man to admit wrong doing and apologize, I felt like a hypocrite for not heeding my own words. So here it is…

It’s been too long, since I
wrote that song
popped some thongs, so I
guess I’ve moved on
there’s still one thing left to say

“yeah that’s right! you’re a sorry sack of sh!t” – you’ll probably think

to which I would reply in recital of Elzhi’s lyrics…bolded lyrics are especially poignant

“Hey, hey I like her
Isn’t that how it starts?
She feel the same y’all came together but you’re now apart since it went sour tart
you got a coward heart
You’re never giving up, thinking all the while it’s smart
It made you ice cold ’cause you gambled and your dice rolled snake eyes
that make guys play, when they twice old
and you thought that you would never trust again
thinking they’re good just for lust and sin and not for busting in
And like the other players where they take us to their lair
then you lay her, there’s not a special person in your prayers
Going through women, some thick, a few slim and
busting out their shirts, others out their blue denim
and there’s a lot of fish in the sea, where you swimming that you could fetch
but wouldn’t think they were a good catch
Till one day that fly one comes along
you think of her off an R&B cut, then hum the song
and get the feeling feeling numb is wrong
when she’s away, you miss her like when the summer’s gone
The place where this coming from is strong
and you trying to fight it. Delighted, when she come around hot and you’re excited
they say you can feel real when you first sight it
Also known as the gift and the curse silent
Get bit by the bug, coping, show a few the symptoms
you fall in love but just before you fell, you were tripping
meaning you were slipping then you got opened
and told her everything, through your body language, it was not spoken
You out with her it’s like you never call your hoes
give her the tallest rose, y’all hit the mall for shows
You stop going to bars
where a baller goes to pop bottles with top models and take off all her clothes
You’re still in denial, but you’re building a smile
when she say she, feeling your style

‘Cause baby girl you got that glow
very, very far from a hood rat and not that hoe
I’m saying you could spot that yo
make you wanna plot at getting her she’s hot that show
‘Cause baby girl got that, got that, got that…..

I will forever regret how I handled that situation. But I won’t dwell on it any longer. Cuz that’s life ain’t it?

Tell’em Frank…remember when I used to sing Frankie to you Green Girl?…those memories are indelible shorty

Live Long and Prosper.

Back to the classy,
