Gangsta Pat – Stay Away From Cali Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Now let me t-tell you about this girl named Cali
She lived in the hood, d-deep in the valley
She had the kind of body that will make you wanna grab
But she had the kind of boots that make you want to stab
Tried to step to her at school one day
But Cali, Cali, Cali wouldn’t give me no play
She said I didn’t have enough to money to support her
She showed me some things her boyfriend bought her
I wondered to myself how much money would it take
And then I thought again I could never be Cakeman
I better wait to try and change her mind
Cause if I don’t, she would try to rob me blind
So I felt perpetrated that I to this for that
To try and get Cali, Cali, Cali on her back
She let me take her to the school pep rally
But my friends kept telling me to stay away from Cali

[Chorus]
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali

[Verse 2]
Yo, then the situation got funny
Cause Cali kept t-t-taking all my money
But a week later it got even worse
The girl had me stealing straight out my mother’s purse
Tryin’ to buy her this, and tryin’ to buy her that
But in the meanwhile, my pockets got flat
So I got tired of being treated like a youth
So when I see Cali I’m gonna tell her the truth
So went and dialed the number to her place
And when I told her she hung up in my face
I thought she was playing or slippin me a token
But to come to find out the girl wasn’t jokin’
So I got left heart broken in the cold
Cause I didn’t have the cars, the gold, and the bank roll
Saw her riding with Lorenzo
The brother with the drop top 93 Benzo
Walking home from school, feelin like a loser
I should’ve been nice, I shouldn’t have tried to use her

The pain inside was killing me softly
My friends knew the deal cause they were trippin’ off me
I couldn’t get mad at the fact
That I got dumped by a girl like that
So I should have listened that day in the alley
When everybody told me to stay away from Cali

[Chorus]
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali

[Verse 3]
Ye, 3 weeks later
I seen her at a party
Lookin’ good as hell
With the million dollar body
So I start to step to her once again like a jerk
And try to run the game but this time it didn’t work
So I went on, cause she was trying to tempt me
So I grabbed the mic and rock like an MC
Cause you know the P-A-T is the loud type
I had to do something to try and get the crowd hyped
I did it like (this), I did it like (that)
But I didn’t use a wiffle ball bat (so…)
But when I got through
The girlies ran up
So many grabbed me I could hardly stand up
Nothing I could do but yell stop!
And I then I seen Cali sniffin’ all over my jock
So I thought about that day in the alley
And made up my mind to stay away from Cali

[Chorus]
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, (aw yeah) Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali
Stay away from Cali, Cali

[Outro]
Yo, I gotta send this jam out to all my Calis out there
You know who I’m talking about
The kind of female that don’t want to get with you unless you ridin’ Benzo or something
Yeah this is for you
And a brother who’s like a gangsta’, gonna stay away from ‘em
Know what I’m sayin?
And I’m out, yeah
