Wu Tang Clan - The Heart Gently Weeps



The joy the flowers bring me

The pain still has me sinking

All while my heart gently weeps

Your smile has got me shrinking

The tears in your eyes are twinkling

Because the heart gently weeps


[Raekwon the Chef]

Snowy night, fiends basin, a Raisin in the Sun was amazin

The joint on the dresser, a gauge went off

Jumped up, fish tank, it fell, and they stuck

They shot her cousin LaVon, he owed a buck

Willie was awful, pulled out the ratchet, let off two

Grits fell on his leg, Kiana ripped the cold bowl

He violent, an Island nigga with the talent

of six killas who just came home, from straight whylin

Robbin everything in Macy's, Lacy, short haircut

With long arms who fuck niggaz, got four babies

Yvette jabbed her, slapped her wig off, ran in the crib

She did the dumb shit, my nigga then clapped her

Lester, smoked Chester sister Vest, I heard it was a mess

They ripped the apple out her throat, blessed her

Hungry hyenas from Medina, all eight trainers

Who got reluct', think fast and blast from Beamers


[Interlude: Erykah Badu]

I don't know whyyy-hy-hyyyy, nobody told you

Man's not supposed to cry...

Though we're just babies, and you're so crazy

How tears of joy bring so much life


[Ghostface Killah]

Yeah, yo

I brought my bitch out to Pathmark, she's pushin the cart

Headed to aisle four, damn I got milk on my Clark's

That's what I get, not focusin from hittin that bar

My mouth dried, need plenty water quick, I feel like a shark

In the aisle bustin them paper towels and wipin my Wally's down

I stood up to face a barrel, he's holdin a shiny pound

It's him, he want revenge, I murdered his Uncle Tim

I sold him a bag of dope, his wife came and copped again

[singing] That bitch is crazyyyyy

And uh, she brought her babyyyyy

She knew I hard the murders, a smack

It killed her man though, now I got his fuckin nephew grippin his gat

You's a bitch - [singing] you better kill meeeee

You know you're bootyyyyyy

You pulled your toolie, out on meeeee... motherfucker

First thought was to snatch the ratchet

Said fuck it and fuckin grabbed it

I ducked, he bucked twice, this nigga was fuckin laughin

I wrestled him to the ground, tustle, scuffle, constantly kicked him

He wouldn't let go the joint, so I fuckin bit him

Shots was whizzin, hittin Clorox bottles

Customers screamin, then the faggot ran out of hollows

I had to show him what it's all about

Next thing you read in the paper, "A man who came to kill gets knocked out"


[Interlude: Erykah Badu]

I don't know whyyy-hy-hyyyy, nobody told you

Man's not supposed to cry...

Though we're just babies, and you're so crazy

How tears of joy bring so much life


[Method Man]

Yo, aiyyo yo yo

You on your way to the store nigga grab me a Dutch, I'm mad as fuck

My dude, my count was short when I was baggin it up

Now I need liquor, nigga pass me a cup

What's up with Officer Brown? The other day he tried to shackle me up

He killed Kase and now he hasslin us

This motherfucker got balls, even the gall to try and pattin me up

Time to re-up, let these niggaz know we back on the block

With three hundred off a G-pack, crack in the spot.
