or
Common

Yeah, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo
Yo, a touch of jazz, y'all, yeah, yeah
? y'all, yo, they got us on the run like

8 minutes to sunrise
Oh, baby, now what are we gonna do?
(I don't know)
Pressure is mountin'
Oh, baby, now how we gonna get through?
(I don't know)

Can't go left, can't go right
(Uh, uh, uh, uh)
Don't know how we made it through the night
(Come on, come on, come on)
7 minutes to sunrise
Oh, baby, now what are we gonna do?
(Do it, do it)

It was once said by Black Thought that "Things fall apart"
Knew I shouldn't have been messin' with dude's girl from start
But I pimp from the heart; the art of it made it interestin'
Plus me and sister blend before we got intimate

Friend or no friend, my man caught wind
This chick is payin' me; it'll either cost me or cost him
Told her she shoulda lost him a while ago
(When?)
'Cause dude'll drink a pile of Mo' and defile her, yo

I ain't here to start on this nigga, for me to wreck his broad
You could tell what I thought of this nigga
Nickname was Smoke, don't know if that was 'cause of cigarettes
(Or what?)
Or guns he tote; he called shots on the deck

So I wasn't tryin' to call his bluff, by his persona
You could see he think he tough
If that wasn't enough, old girl had his son
This is wild like the West; I'm like Jesse on the run, uh

6 minutes to sunrise
Oh, baby, now what are we gonna do?
(I don't know)
Pressure is mountin'
Oh, baby, now how we gon' get through?
(I don't know)

Can't go left and can't go right and
(Uh, uh, uh, uh)
Don't know how we made it through the night
(Yo, we got)
5 minutes to sunrise
Oh, baby, now what are we gonna do?
(Do it, do it)

I understand that time is runnin' out; I'm thinkin' of town-skippin'
Got a Chevy, but the alternator be trippin'
I'm hittin' rum straight, thinkin' of a route to truncate
The streets is watchin'; out is one way I put myself in his Nike's

His position is, "A'ight, man, somebody bonin' my lady"
Probably snap like Rodman
My plan was to meet at this bar called the Tiki
(When?)'round four
When she was comin', she would beep me

I sat deep in the corner, drinkin' zombies, becomin' one by now
Wonderin' if my style would support her and her child
Out the corner of my eye saw this stud I recognized
(Who?) One of Smoke's guys
To stay out of sight I tried

Told Jill Scott to meet we coulda picked a better spot
On some nobody's supposed to be here shit like Deborah Cox
Looked at my watch; shit, I don't even got a watch
Felt for my glock; dammit, I don't even got a glock, yo

4 minutes to sunrise
Oh, baby, now what are we gonna do?
(I don't know)
Pressure is mountin'
Oh, baby, now how we gon' get through?
(I don't know)

Can't go left and can't go right and
(Uh, uh, uh, uh)
Don't know how we made it through the night
(Come on, come on)
3 minutes to sunrise
Oh, baby, now what are we gonna do?
(Do it, do it)

Pressure, pressure, what? The pressure's cookin'
It ain't good-lookin'; like a black promoter, I'm talkin', bookin'
Not that I'm spooked of dude--I could whoop him
But he was on the horn informin' the rest of them hoodlums
(A'ight)

Usually I wouldn't fight over a woman, old girl had a sunshine
Was messed up, on Smoke's payroll was one-time
My pager went off; it read one line: "Come get me
From Halsted"; I'm thinkin' this is monkey bar, shit

Went to the phone quick, called her; her line was busy
(What happened?)
Situation number nine, got my mind dizzy
Wondered if this plan was designed to get me
I've been drinkin' too strong to be thinkin' too long

Like 40 goin' North I'm doin' 50, headed for the spot
Askin' God to be with me and lately
She has been actin' shifty
(But what?)
But then it hit me, it hit me
(Hit me, hit me)
It hit me, it hit me
(Hit me)

2 minutes to sunrise
Oh, baby, now what are we gonna do?
(I don't know)
Pressure is mountin'
Oh, baby, now how we gonna get through?
(Yo, I said I don't know)

Can't go left and can't go right and
(Uh, uh, nope)
Don't know how we made it through the night
(Yo, we got)
1 minute to sunrise
Oh, baby, now what are we gonna do?
(One, one, one, ha)

1 minute, one, one
(We got, we got)
1 minute, one, one
(Ah, shit, we got)

1 minute, one, one
(What we got, girl?)
1 minute, now, now
(Baby, Common Sense on the run)

1 minute, one
(Common Sense on the run)
1 minute
(Just got on the run, just got on the run)

Common Sense on the run, Common Sense on the run
Just got on the run, just got on the run
They got us on the run like
They got us on the run

They got us on the, yo
They got us on the run
Uh, yo, they got us on the run
They got us on the, yo
They got us on the run
And we out
