Merry Go Round Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 0
I have tried in vein
Never had success
So it seems my life is nothing but a mess
I have lost, my only friends
Now it seems I have to start again
Merry go round
Verse 1
My life's been goin' around 'n' round since ninety five
Went from goin' somewhere about to die
Went from callin' my chick a chicken
Cause she look like she got poultry around her thighs
To callin' your piece a chicken
Cause she got no teeth and she got crow feet around her eyes
How hard are y'all? I got a heart the size of Arkansas
Count to five, these birds gon' hit the ground
And they ain't from out the Sky
Went from havin' an outta-this-world-flow,
To doin' the video, doin' the coon dance
To watchin' my good friend Eminem winnin' a moonman
I remember cause I was in New York with all of my boys to start shit
Lettin' 'em stay with me, long story short,
They tore up my corporate apartment
Went from bein a kid addicted to basketball
To bein' an ignorent nigga addicted to alcohol
Round and round we go is how this movie would end
Self-proclaimed King of my city,
Not really just truly the King of losin' a friend
Who would've thought this goof
In the park who's true to his ark would lose
Or win just by givin' his thoughts 'n' views
Verse 2
Verse 3
You would hear that Ryan's skilled
Might even hear Ryan kills
You will never hear Ryan steals
Here to put the "I" in ill
My mind is still
Like a merry-go-round spill
Like leavin' only guns to my kids when I'm killed
I got an iron will
Intellect as ion I don' went from high on pills
To triumph, to hidin' from bills, to buyin' buildin's
Then I went from writin' for Dre
To wonderin' if my head was on straight on the sidelines
Feelin' I forgot about listenin' to "Forgot About Dre"
From there I went to about a bottle a day
Tellin' who we know "Get outta my face!"
Okay I know what Kino said about Dre
I look at Kino to this day like that was a stupid mistake
But if it wasn't for him doin' that, what would I be doin' today?
If it wasn't for Cassius sayin' that he gonna beat my ass
Then me and Em probably wouldn't be laughin' bout us gettin' past it
If it wasn't for me bein outcasted I woulda never been on the underground
Rappin' wit slaughterhouse!
Verse 4
