Watch What You Say
Guru Lyrics


Coming with the realness lyrics of life
Some people need to watch what they say

Watch what you're saying
Someone's gonna hear exactly what you said
Soon you'll be paying
In the dead of night they'll be nowhere to run
While you were laying
Laying for the doom that's coming to a head
No kind of praying
Is gonna save us from the past that will surely come

Warning, rappers be like boring
They're sleeping, it's deep man
So peep in closely when I'm speaking
Weaklings, it's obvious you can't like up to
Your petty pointless words, yet and still you love to
Run off your jibs, now there come a time for judgement
Punishment, what if we take away your ornaments
And strip you down to the raw deal
Then I'd reveal the evidence
Cause you don't really represent

Watch what you're saying
Someone's gonna hear exactly what you said
Soon you'll be paying
In the dead of night they'll be nowhere to run
While you were laying
Laying for the doom that's coming to a head
No kind of praying
Is gonna save us from the past that will surely come

Listen here
I'm getting tired of you shooting lip
You better tighten up
Or you will really slip up
And say something that you mean to do
Turn around and it'll be on you
To save yourself from your call and blunder
And bury your ??? like the world it's under
And like a fool you'll sit and wonder
What, who do you want to know, wish
No water, no magic spell
Can save you from your self made hell
You've made your bed and you know darn well
You got a lay it in the ?
And there's no magic potion
To save you from the wheels you've set in motion
The stone is cut, the die is cast
What were you thinking

Watch what you're saying
Someone's gonna hear exactly what you said
Soon you'll be paying
In the dead of night they'll be nowhere to run
While you were laying
Laying for the doom that's coming to a head
No kind of praying
Is gonna save us from the past that will surely come

I can't understand it, they should ban it, can it
Too much weak talk and not enough real hip-hop
I sense a purpose is filling me
To display credibility and show responsibility, willingly
I'll take on any Johnny Dangerous
Pull his file, for he knows he cannot hang with this
The illest king, I smack the jokers
No hocus pocus, a real MC when I kick vocals

Watch what you're saying
Someone's gonna hear exactly what you said
Soon you'll be paying
In the dead of night they'll be nowhere to run
While you were laying
Laying for the doom that's coming to a head
No kind of praying
Is gonna save us from the past that will surely come

@Crucial P Denis Lea true hip hip is dead, and we have nothing but gimmicks and the latest fads in rap music today.

Crucial P Denis Lea

@Dajuan Menzies I too think it wouldn't work today cause it's all about trap beat in hip hop nowadays

El Piña

It’s 2020rolling into 2021 and I agree

Disciple of The Way

@Omega Male Revelations not true songs with meaning have been around in all generations however it's not today's style of sound. There are always going to be rappers with substance & rappers with things you disagree with in all eras. & I'm a 1981 baby.

Miss Guru's laid back drawl and his respect for music and how he fused his love of jazz with hip hop. Fantastic. All those kids will be in their late twenties and thirties now...
