You Wouldnt Understand Lyrics

by Nas

Yeah, harlem, bronx, brooklyn
Let's make a bet
I know the reason you ain't make it yet
You say you set but you ain't see the tedious ingredients
That go inside of a rider, you hiding from problems and
You never knew how to make dollars
You couldn't make orders at a drive-through McDonald's
I was fly at the Apollo with Black Jason, 89 with a bottle
Niggas jealous of Jason
Dark green seven forty, no tint
Rollie on wrist, gleaming he rock the baldy
Used to ride with him to Brooklyn, Louis, and Hallsey
Cop chocolate thai, Vernon style and burn it down
My nigga hype in the federal joint, verdict out
Twenty years getting money in the dirty south
That's alleged, you see my nigga's a stand up dude
So I'm yelling free my nigga
My nephew godfather Malik, he jammed up too
For what his hands usually call for but he ain't do it

[Refrain] Victoria Monet
Who you are ain't in the recipe to what I am
Cause where I'm from, man
What I see you wouldn't understand
Where I been and what I do
No matter how you try you never can
Cause where I'm from
What I see you wouldn't understand
Where I been, where I been

You ever been on the other end of a robber's revolver
Not me, call me lucky nas casalana
Or been shot in the medulla oblongata and survived
And praise god with a bullet I never collided
Some did and they lived
I salute the gods
Moet spilling, splashed by mistake on my timb boots for y all
N.y. nigga, adidas, jogging suit
Shelltoes, slim, fly nigga
Hudson river, rent a boat, t-shirt with a dinner coat
And vintage fila like I'm the ghost of domencio
On any day getting throwed in a tinted vehicle
Like a old bk gangsta, but I'm the ceo
Of nasty nas enterprises, mastermind, made men
My success symbolizes loyalty, great friends
Dedication, hard work, routine builds character
In a world full of snakes, rats and scavengers
Never make choices out of desperation, I think through it
Break through walls like pink floyd
And drink fluids of all kind of alcohol y all
Vineyards in france, yachts out in cannes

[Refrain]

Now holla at a millionaire
Rollie, hublot and audemar, deciding which one to wear
Who to screw, what to drive
550 with the cream guts inside
Or the super sport range truck is fly
Diamond ring on my knuckles like fire, bitch
Gat's on us, I don't really trust these guys
Spend a couple bucks a night on bottles on cuties
If she beautiful, the lustful type
I'll hit it and bust inside
Fuck it, i'mma die one day
They gon' probably make that day a holiday
Until then, let's go on a shopping spree
Speaking for my real niggas, only ogs
Certified who kill niggas when put in that seat
But tonight we on chill nigga, chill mode
Spill more spades, listen to jeezy and hov, some rozay
It's like we always on the grind with no brakes
So tonight we gon' act like we on vacation with this on rotation

[Refrain]

True b nigga, yeah
For my hood niggas, yeah, yeah
To my man eric b what up, yeah
The whole city, I see you
To my man big slate in the fed joint
My man spunk, free my niggas
All my niggas, yeah
Club Vernon, I see you
I see you, yeah
And baltum, I see you

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
