Illegal Search

Illegal Search

LL Cool J

Yo, baby
Put your seatbelt on
I got my paperwork, don't worry
It's cool

Illegal search
(Do you want to see it?)
(I'm gonna do it)

What the hell are you lookin' for?
Can't a young man make money anymore?
Wear my jewels and, like, freak it on the floor
Or is it my job to make sure I'm poor?
Can't my car look better than yours?
Keep a cigar in between my jaws
I drink champagne, to hell with Coors
Never sold coke in my life, I do tours
Get that flashlight out of my face
I'm not a dog, so, damn it, put away the mace
I got cash and real attorneys on the case
You're just a joker perpetratin' a ace
You got time, you want to give me a taste?
I don't smoke cigarettes, so why you lookin' for base?
You might plant a gun, and hope I run a race
Eatin' in the messhall, sayin' my grace
You tried to frame me, but it won't work
Illegal search

Keep on searchin'

I'm totally relaxed

Illegal searchin'

Illegal search

Keep on searchin'
Keep on searchin'
Keep on searchin'
Gotta, gotta, gotta

I call it nice, you call it a 'drug car'
I say 'disco', you call it a 'drug bar'
I say 'nice guy', you call me Mr. Good Bar
I made progress, you say, "Not that far."
I just started it, you're searchin' my car
But all my paperwork is up to par
It's in my uncle's name, so the frame won't work
Chump; illegal search

Keep on searchin'

Illegal search
You won't find nothin'

On the turnpike, and everything's right
In the background is flashin' lights
Get out the car in the middle of the night
It's freezin' cold, and you're doin' it for spite
Slam me on the hood, yo, that ain't right
You pull out your gun if I'm puttin' up a fight
My car, my clothes, and my girl is hype
But you want to replace my silver stripes
You're a real man, your uniform is tight
Fingerprint me, take my name and height
Hopin' it will, but I know it won't work
Illegal search
(Do you want to see it?)

Hey yo, Marley
Get funky

Illegal, illegal, illegal search

Real funky

(I'm gonna do it for ya)
(I'm gonna do it)

Keep it right there
Funk it up

I was sued to court, the case got thrown out
I'm that man that you all read about
Put me in jail, you're doin' it for clout
I only got one question, what's that all about?
Jail is somethin' that I can do without
Case dismissed, and now you want to pout
You feel like tryin' it again, but you know it won't work
Illegal search

Keep on searchin'

Illegal search
But I got all my ID, and my car's registered

Illegal searchin'
Illegal search

And them cops out there
That did the wrong thing to one of my brothers
In Jersey
Keep on searching
You know what I'm sayin'?
Cause that was foul

Peace
