Until You See Me, Trust Me...You Ain't Seen Bouncin' Back

If ever life hands you a bunch of lemons, throw 'em back and get a beer. I learned that from going back to college this quarter. This week is finals and I'm on the fast track to passing classes for the first time in twenty years. I'm studied harder than I've ever had to do before, but I've gotten good at the classes becasue now I know to concentrate on the project to do my best. Since I take my first final test tomorrow, this has been my new theme song: Mystikal's "Bouncin' Back".



For those of you who are Hip Hop impaired or who just couldn't understand what in the world the guy was saying, here are the lyrics...

[Hook: Mystikal]
You keep bumping me against the wall
Yeah I know I let you slide before
But until you seen me...trust me

You ain't seen bouncin' back
[repeat]

[Verse 1]
I really be throwin' my words
Standing 'em up, and jammin' on the one
That ain't nobody but Neptunes bammin' on the drum
Swift flip kicks landing from the tongue
More dramatic than batman and robin, ba na na na na na
The one that be handling they business, be sharper than a thumb tack
The one that be dropping these albums, showing 'em how to come back
And you gon' respect me and appreciate where I run at
You ain't gone piss me off, cause you sorry that you done that
I gets meaner, badder, stronger and ferocious
You don't even much wanna see the rest
I'm coming back mo' fearless, mo' determined to fold the set
I ain't even started yet
So if you ain't ready you better get ready
I know I do it better when I'm being opposed
Ah stick ya chest out, keep your chin up
'Cause sometimes you gotta get knocked down to get up

[Hook]
You keep bumping me against the wall
Yeah I know I let you slide before
But until you seen me...trust me

You ain't seen bouncin' back
[repeat]

[Verse 2]
No matter what happened that's only once it's shame on you
You come up and here and do it again then it's shame on me
Sometimes we be getting in trouble we didn't want learn or
Sometimes we be getting in trouble we ain't gon' see
I accept my wages like the way that I fail
I grow, I take 'em in stride and but 'em under my belt
I learned from you just like you learned from me
I plead, I pray for peace and perfect harmony
Somebody said fool you better keep on rapping
Stop that trippin', causin it ain't gone happin'
I told them look you better mind yo business
Change yo' way of thinking and keep on living
Done started some trouble and you ain't been out since
Cause you stuck inside scared watching CNN
Just take the precaution so yo life will be better
Tell my friends to call me I ain't accepting no letters

[Hook]
You keep bumping me against the wall
Yeah I know I let you slide before
But until you seen me...trust me

You ain't seen bouncin' back
[repeat]

[Verse 3]
You heard about me, yeah you had to
Hmm-huh, I know you changed ya mind you ain't the only one with bad news
I know that they made you feel strange huh
You was right in the middle complainin' and forgot what you was cryin' bout
It could be you time and it might be
You can't do nothing about it, its God will thats just how life be
One day it hit 'cha then its gone
And I'm serious and you ain't never even gone feel it until it hit home
That's when the pain run sharper and deeper
You ain't eat that's when the days feel slow and long
I know you miss 'em so it's time to uplift 'em
Try to pick the pieces up and find a way to drive on
I tell you the truth so don't lie to me
Get back Satan don't bother me
And that's the way its gotta be
And real as ever so I hope you proud of me

[Hook]
You keep bumping me against the wall
Yeah I know I let you slide before
But until you seen me...trust me

You ain't seen bouncin' back
[repeat]

You keep bumping me against the wall [3x]
You ain't seen bouncin' back
[repeat and fade out]


So, if you're ever having a bad day or you just need some encouragementment to boost up your ego a bit more, remember the words to this tune. By the way, Mystikal was sentenced in 2004 to six years in prison after forcing his stylist to perform sexual acts. I wonder if he's ever taken his words to heart since then...
