The Reading
Lyrics Asher Roth

I'm a blood suckin, drug puffin thug frontin, love muffin
Why ma'am that's quite nice
Yeah sure I'd love muffins
Warm from the oven covered honey oat and butter nut
Bake about 100 cause I'm coming with my buddies (what up)
We don't mean to butt in but there's nothing better coming up
Pack it in forget it ya strap on in buckle up
Nothing but the truth, I'm telling you the truth
Hip-hop is still alive and I am living proof
And in order to improve we must kill it at the root
Shooting for the knees not until you see these pupils
Youthful of useful youthful exuberance
Music refutes that abuses the rules
And of freedom of speech well freedom to speak
Lets see that as free time build em and teach
Yeah read it and weep cause reading increases your knowledge
And ideas dealing in the street
While college is fine and the library's vital
God is the bomb and the bar is my idol
Crime story mind story autobiography
Short story long story novel or comedy
Non fiction rhyme spittin nonsense
now not an option squashed it (squashed) stop it (stop)
The not has been noddin they noddin they noggins
And now real start of the truth
So move with the movement, movement of humans
Using the tools we were born with
Or you can forfeit your fortune to the less fortunate unfortunately
The poor kids are forced to form they thoughts on things
Formally taught to them it seems to be the least important part
To think and dream believing things
Could never get any better than this
So rejecting intellect neglecting interest
The internet becomes a nest of sex
Best describe as extra time to emphasize
What mom and papa tried to hide
Eject the desktop inject the Xbox
And let's not stop there watch this head shot
And watch they head pop open
And then drop to the floor keep going cause nobody said stop
Our only hope is the music they listening
To influence they intuition ability to recognize
Between right and wrong it's either hit or miss
No intermission and intermission is on
A light goes on to volunteer my time my mind my rhyme
Defines the finer things in life decide to write
A positive vibe acknowledging the might of the rhyme
I am Ash-er Roth
