San Francisco Knights

Written by: Michael Turner & Christopher Portugal

[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan night… (x4)

On a warm San Franciscan…
[Thes One:] Knight Lord Radio and Hale Bop on the Bay Bridge, faded
Trying to find Smiley's house, thank God we made it
[Double K:] Yo, blunts, broads, and beats, keep it low through the streets
And niggas giving us pounds 'cause of these dope-ass sounds
[Thes One:] We run aground like ships over these beats I flips
The bass is hitting so hard that your CD skips
[Double K:] Well, check it out, make sure it doesn't happen again
I got my grip on it, so turn it up to volume ten
[Thes One:] Volume ten? Like that brother from L.A.
Lord Radio and Hale Bop be streaking through the Bay
We all-city like the Mayor
You see my name on more fresh shit than Creed Taylor
The G for international ladies like a sailor
[Double K:] Like a sailor, I gets drunk and bust flows to the beat
Like my man J, I feel the Agony of Defeat
'Cause sucka-chumps wanna test and step like we don't know
[Thes One:] We doin', we doin' shows in San Francisco
[Double K:] That's right young writer, got a hit for all you biters
Time to bless another track, we gettin' rid of the wack
[Thes One:] Right, we put 'em in the back with the other Tappan Zee shit
Beats hit hard, make the trolleys do ollies
Old folks grabs their collies and vacate the bay
See our name in Northern Lights, Thes Love and Double K
[Double K:] We getting wild for the night, we getting wild for the night
And it all went down on what? What?

[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan night…
[Double K:] Yo, rocking shows for you and your crew
[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan night…
[Thes One:] We rolling blunts and Doin' the Do
[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan night…
[Double K:] We doing shows with a mic check, a wha-a-one, two
[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan night…
[Thes One:] P.U.T.S. on the bad foot, coming through

[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan…
[Double K:] We was drinking, smoking, more smoking, more drinking
Didn't think about the morning hangover, just didn't want to be sober
Yo, Radio, tell me: how did you feel?
[Thes One:] Like I'll never catch a DUI, hit gas, peel
Make a left on Market, yo, Mr. Double K
([Double K:] Ay, ay… what's up?)
Roll up the windows and spark it!
[Double K:] Done deal, yo, you didn't have to ask twice
Just park on top of the hill, so we can peep the city lights
[Thes One:] I'm on Award Tour, we fiend a lot, got it locked like Alcatraz
Doing a San Francisco Show like Hubert Laws
CTI 7071, go buy it
Bring the drums like Harvey Mason, don't try it
[Double K:] Better luck next time, trying to step to the P
You in the Bay, punk, I guess you ain't heard about L.A.
[Thes One:] Yo, Double K, tell 'em that the P's unique with the beats
The P.U.T.S. show's a San Francisco treat
[Double K:] A San Francisco treat, just like some Rice-A-Roni
Put it in your mouth and let it run down the middle just like Monie
[Thes One:] Phony homie, you'll never rock a party
Your wack-ass crew gets called out, see, I play the Rod Roddy
Come on now
[Double K:] To the Southland, punks, where the concrete
Have you asking questions from your hands to your feet
You don't want none of this shit that I'm offering
Saying that P can't rock your city, fool, give back the fool a coffin
[Thes One:] Very often we win, yo, very seldom we lose
Spice rocking your motherfucking whole city

[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan night…
[Double K:] Yo, rollin blunts and Doin' the Do ([Thes One:] Do the do!)
[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan night…
[Double K:] Chilling with your girl and her crew (her crew, her crew)
[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan night…
[Double K:] Scaring old people, still Doin' the Do (we're Doin' the Do)
Yeah, making collect calls into another area code, we 'mote
Yeah, we be the P.U.T.-([Thes One:] The 310)
We be the main extension (It's the 310)
I be the Double K (It's the 213)
And we clowning (It's the 310)
Downing 40 ounces (It's the 213)
Vodka, whatever (It's the 310)
Juice, loose (It's the 213)
San Francisco, here we come (We're doing 4, the 410, the 510)
We're comin' back, we gonna have a gun (The 610, having fun, yo)
Hah! Hah! Hah! Hah! (It go back to back, back to back)
Much love to the Bay Area

[Thes One:] P.U.T.S.! Word!
[Song sample:] On a warm San Franciscan…
[Thes One:] Rocking a disco, starting a fight
[Song sample:] Warm…
