Any different people can apply to drop the funk
It’s not a country club review board steady talkin junk
Many people would have it others go put and grab it
Some trip over toots and say f*ck it I’m sunk

I put it in a limerick and kick the slick nick verbs
I am the one who scores the herb
When we’re on the road P-Nut rolls it up
Throw me a joint on stage what’s up

I will tell a cop that I know my fucking rights
And we can match wits all night for real
He said if I had nothing to hide
Then of course I wouldn’t mind if he looked through our ride

Uh, no I’d really rather you didn’t
And no we don’t have guns hidden
We stood there for a while continue to decline
Firmly, I didn’t lose my mind

I didn’t let him break me he’s just another human
Not a bit of shame in what we were doin’ that day
He couldn’t make us stay
We had our shit together

It don’t matter whether
We sport the dread locks or a shaved head
Or if we have a sticker from the dead
I said a better verse rehearsed about the roughneck curse

Last week I keep an even keel and bow in place
And face the music every minute
Never could see my homey comin’ till he passed
Funky gas by my way all the day I couldn’t laugh

Oh by now I’m chill with it
Bare ass in my face I’m ok but Chad’s like “Uh-uh no he isn’t”
So I proceed to hear him get loose with the
Fartin’ all over my face sometimes my tummy

He fucked with my flow although I thought it funny
I probably wouldn’t care if I smoked more kind bud
But that wouldn’t do me shit ’cause then he’d f*ck me more up
Crazy ill and chillin’ rude but I’ze a real cool dude

He didn’t believe the day would come when he would get his top
But then one day right in front of his face I got him
He looked over said “God damn get me some water”
The one time I hadn’t wasted till I got mine

Smeared his nose with my armpit funk slime
So you get it the picture just how sick we were then
But before I jet “Hey yo Chad sniff my finger man”
I can see a lot of people who feel like I do

I can see a lot of people who feel like I don’t
I go on step lightly even when I’m heavy
High jump the slump open up fot eh Revy Horton Heat
Sweet what am I displayin’ forgot what I was saying

I know I must be laying a pipe you got a gripe
With the way I get high
Graffix bong sing along with a cry of a
Mandatory sentence for a crime with no victim

When everyone knows jail terms should be picked in
Order of the pain that they cause
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law
Until you violate the rights of another

Respect the space of your sister and your brother
The war on drugs may be well intentioned
But it falls fucking flat when you stop and mention
The overcrowded prisons where a rapists gets paroled

To make room for a dude who has sold
A pound of weed to me that’s a crime
Here’s to good people doin time why’all

Bare Ass Yeah
Bare Ass Yeah
Bare Ass Yeah
Bare Ass Yeah
