Schoolyard

I was only 16 and her name was Carrie
She was the number 1 lil girl I wanted 2 marry me
She was only 14
But she had the major body, yeah, this girl was mean
Ooh
Me and Ace picked Carrie up from school 1 day
We took her 4 a ride n Ace's car, the music started 2 play
We sat real close, both nervous
Lookin' at each other not knowin' what 2 say
Mmm

Carrie was a sista but her eyes kinda made her look Japanese
Her short cut afro, shiny and soft, her clothes fit 2 please
Ace was a real fast driver
With every turn Carrie fell n my lap
He asked us where we wanted 2 go
I said, "Yeah right, like U need a map!"

The schoolyard, the schoolyard
Gettin' it on n the schoolyard
With a wink and a nod we were off 2 Ace's pod
Like peas, we was hangin' 4 the night
Mmm, the schoolyard, the schoolyard
Gettin' it on n the schoolyard
We never want it 4 the children of our own
We all pray better seeds we have sown
But 1 story that is most commonly known
Is gettin' it on n the schoolyard
Schoolyard

Ace's girl showed up, that's when the party started jumpin'
Tower Of Power "Squib Cakes" steady humpin'
I said, "Carrie, hmm, do U wanna dance?"
She said, "Mm hmm, yeah, like later man, 1st let me smoke this weed"
I said, "Damn, my cologne ain't sayin' shit if this is what she needs"
{toke-cough}
Yeah, b4 I knew it, Carrie was seein' double (Oh)
That's when me and her got n2 trouble
So much 4 the dance, I started takin' off Carrie's pants

The schoolyard, the schoolyard
Gettin' it on n the schoolyard
Hey...!

And now boys and girls, 4 the graphic part
Close ur ears if U ain't got a nasty heart
The schoolyard, the schoolyard (Here we go)
Now take a glove, fill it with hot baby lotion and slip it on (Well)
Pull it tight, that's what Carrie was like
1 stroke and I was gone
Gone I was, it's true (The schoolyard, the schoolyard)

When ur schoolyard baby comes home and it's all that's on their mind
U try 2 remember how U felt ur very 1st time, oh!

The schoolyard, the schoolyard
Gettin' it on n the schoolyard (Gettin' it on)
We never want it 4 the children of our own (Oh no)
We all pray better seeds we have sown (Yeah, ooh)
But 1 story that is most commonly known (Oh)
Is gettin' it on n the schoolyard (Gettin' it on, oh)
Well, gettin' it on, hehe

The schoolyard, the schoolyard
Gettin' it on n the schoolyard (Boy, U're gettin', yes)
The schoolyard, the schoolyard
Gettin' it on n the schoolyard (Get it on, gettin'... it on, yeah)
Yeah
