about

This song may as well have been called "It's the funeral of a man" but it got its title because a few years before this song had been written I was sitting in the car with my baby mama and her other baby daddy and we were listening to a song of mine on her CD player and he said I sounded like "T-Boz" of the girl R&B group TLC.... So when I wrote and was recording this song I thought "Hmm, these raspy-low vocals I'm using would probably also sound like T-Boz singing also to baby mama other baby daddy.

lyrics

Verse 1:
You can’t leave well enough alone so you’re down
So I’ll rub on myself a little fun now
I didn’t know you like I thought when I vowed
To always love you forever till my time runs out
I lose enough of my self when I’m around you
I keep my eyes shut whenever I see dudes
I try to keep a low profile so I don’t seem cool
And I do this all to keep peace runnin’ smooth

Chorus:
Funeral of a lonely man
Funeral of a looser man
Funeral of a mistaken man
It’s the funeral of a wicked man

Verse 2:
You don’t know when it’s time to shut your mouth
I don’t like phrases that you say like “down south”
I can’t keep dodgin’ life when you’re around
I can’t stand the fact you always come loud
I don’t know what they’d say if they found out
Just how you act with me you are so foul
I’m holdin’ a shovel standin’ on this mound
Tryin’ to make peace with what is dead now

Chorus:
Funeral of a lonely man
Funeral of a looser man
Funeral of a mistaken man
It’s the funeral of a wicked man
