    Lyrics

    I'm just a curbside prophet
    with my hand in my pocket
    and i'm waiting for my rocket to come
    I'm just a curbside prophet
    with my hand in my pocket
    and i'm waiting for my rocket ya'll

    y'see it started way back in nyc
    when i stole my first rhyme from the M.I.C.
    at a west end avenue at 63
    it's the beginning of a leap year, february, '96
    with a guitar picked up in the mix
    i committed to the licks like a nickel back of tricks
    well look at me now
    look at me now
    look at me now, now, now, now

    i'm just a curbside prophet
    with my hand in my pocket
    and i'm waiting for my rocket to come
    i'm just a curbside prophet
    with my hand in my pocket
    and i'm waiting for my rocket ya'll

    well then you're never gonna guess
    where i've been been been
    and i have no regrets
    that i bet my whole checking account
    because it all amounts to nothing up in the end
    well you can only count that on the road again
    we'll soon be on my radio dial
    and i been payin close attention to the Willie Nelson style
    like a, a band of gypsies on the highway while
    cuz i'm one man pushin' on the california skyline drive
    up the coast I brag and i bost
    because I'm pickin up my pace and makin time like space ghost
    raising a toast to the highway patrol and to most
    but my cruise control's on coast
    cause im touring around the nation
    on extended vacation
    see i got Elsa the dog who exceeds my limitation
    i say, i like your style, crazy pound pup!
    you need a ride?
    well come on, girl, hop in the truck!

    With just a curbside prophet
    with my hand in my pocket
    and i'm waiting for my rocket to come
    I'm just a curbside prophet
    with my hand in my pocket
    and i'm waiting for my rocket ya'll
    I'm just a curbside prophet
    with my hand in my pocket
    and i'm waiting for my rocket to come on
    I'm just a curbside prophet
    with my hand in my pocket
    and i'm waiting for my rocket ya'll

    see i'm a down home brother, redneck undercover
    with my guitar here
    i'm ready to play
    and i'm a sucker for a Philly
    got a natural ability
    geared the freestyle
    look at my flexibility
    dangerous at the mike
    my ghetto hat's cocked right
    the ladies say, yo, that kid is crazy
    we got the backstage betties taking more than they can get
    they say, what's up with M-R-A-Z?

    hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    something's different in my world today
    well they changed my traffic sign to a brighter yellow
    hey, hey, something's different in my world today
    well they changed my traffic sign to a brighter yellow
    i'm just a curbside prophet love
    a curbside brother love
    a curbside brother love
    a curbside ohh
    come on
    I'm just a curbside prohet
    and I'm waiting for my rocket
    said I'm waiting for my rocket to come now cuz I'm cubsided brother
    your a curbside brother and I'm waiting for my rocket said I'm waiting for my rocket. . .
