Subj:     Ebonics Night before Christmas (S44)

     'Twas da night befo' Christmas
     & all in the hood,
     Not a homie was stirring
     cuz it was all good.

     The tube socks was hung
     on the window sill
     and we all had
     smiles up on our grill.

     Mookie and BeBe was snug in the crib
     in the back bedroom, cuz that's how we live.
     And Moms in her do-rag and me with my nine,
     had just gotten busy cuz girlfriend is fine.

     All of a sudden a lowrider rolled by,
     Bumpin' phat beats cuz the system's fly.
     I bounced to the window at a quarter pas'
     'Bout ready to pop a cap in somebody's ass!

     Well anyway....I yelled to my lady, Yo peep this!
     She said, Stop frontin' & just mind yo' bidness.

     I said, for real doe, come check dis out.
     We weren't even buggin', no worries, no doubt.
     Cuz bumpin' an thumpin' from around da way
     Was Santa, 8 reindeer and a sleigh.

     Da beats was kickin', da ride was phat
     I said, "Yo red Dawg, you all that!"
     He threw up a sign and yelled to his boyz,
     "Ay yo, give it up, let's make some noise!"

     To the top of the projects & across the strip mall,
     We gots ta go, I got a booty call!"
     He pulled up his ride on the top a da roof,
     and sippin' on a 40, he busted a move.

     I yelled up to Santa, "Yo ain't got no stack!"
     he  said, "Damn homie, deese projects is wack!
     But don't worry black, cuz I gots da skillz
     I learnt back when I hadda pay da billz."

     Out from his bag he pulled 3 small tings
     a credit card, a knife, and a bobby pin.
     He slid down the fire exscape smoove as a cat,
     and busted the window wit' a b-ball bat.

     I said, "Whassup, Santa? Whydya bust my place?"
     he said,"You best get on up out my face!"
     His threads was all leatha, his chains was all gold,
     His sneaks was Puma and they was 5 years old.

     He dropped down the duffle, Clippers logo on the side.
     Santa broke out da loot and my mouf popped open wide.
     A wink of his eye and a shine off his gold toof,
     He cabbage patched his way back onto the roof.

     He jumped in his hooptie wit' rims made of chrome,
     To tap that booty waitin' at home.
     And all I heard as he cruised outta sight,
     was a loud and hearty..... "WEEESST SIIIIDE!!!!!!!"
