    Lyrics

    For one price, for one price, for one price
    In the whole history of man, in the whole history of man,
    In the whole history of man
    All the people on this earth are joined by

    (skee-lo)
    I don't need your sympathy your misery is drivin me insane
    You got your hands out but i refrain
    From givin you a pound you bloody hound
    You better take heed to cause i don't need you to hang around
    Now you wasn't cool ever since back when i got jumped
    You played the punk and ran a sprint
    See one of us is trippin but i was just concerned
    At the time i lost my wallet
    And you found it stole my money then returned it
    You used to claim in front of people we were next of kin
    I never knew that you were sleepin with my girlfriend
    And if i did i would've bashed you maybe thrashed you
    I never asked you homie tell me is it true
    Because i knew you were up to no good
    Spreadin rumours on me in the neighbourhood
    Yeah, so let me bring this to my point
    We ain't friends, we ain't homies and we never shared a joint
    So you ain't down

    (chorus)
    (skee-lo)
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your sympathy
    Your simple case of misery has caused me pain
    (you ain't down with me no more)
    Yeah, you ain't down
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your misery
    Cause mamma said what goes around comes back again
    (you ain't down with me no more)
    (you ain't down)

    (skee-lo)
    I remember girls in college who was never ever
    Among these beautiful women was my favourite name venetta
    Pain, love and agony she's all of the above
    I keep thinkin to myself "oh i don't wanna fall in love"
    But oh venetta i read your letter
    And it gets better as i read on down the lines but in my mind
    I cannot find out why you wanna diss me
    Getting me to fall in love with you and just to say you can't be with me
    (you ain't down)
    You're messin with my head and although it seems
    Your heart is darker than the night so i'm prepared to use my high beams
    You had me doin things silly things
    Sharin with you my feelings and in the meantime you was killin
    Me softly hey women get off me you know you lost me
    Hey that's what you get for actin flossy
    You caused me to open up my eyes and look around
    I see that we ain't friends, we ain't lovers we ain't homies baby
    You ain't down

    (chorus)
    (skee-lo)
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your sympathy
    Your simple case of misery has caused me pain
    (you ain't down with me no more)
    Yeah, you ain't down
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your misery
    Cause mamma said what goes around comes back again
    (you ain't down with me no more)
    (you ain't down)
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your sympathy
    Your simple case of misery has caused me pain
    (you ain't down with me no more)
    Yeah, you ain't down
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your misery
    Cause mamma said what goes around comes back again
    (you ain't down with me no more)

    (skee-lo)
    This is dedicated to the kids who ain't crew
    You ain't never been down so homie ain't no pounds for you
    You'll never know me so don't you try to show me
    We can be friends you can now but somehow you did back then
    Just to be down with me you don't need a change of heart
    Just change your life and your identity
    Cause everybody's on my jock tryin to flag me down
    When i come around the block
    It's all the same the only thing that's changed is
    You used to call me puff but now you call me by name
    You and your friends get no love, sympathy or pain
    If i gave you the chance then you would diss me again
    Is it fortune and fame that you persist to be around?
    I don't wanna see a smile i don't wanna see a frown
    So now you know that's how it was and that's how it is
    By the way stay out of my biz
    Cause homie you ain't down

    (chorus)
    (skee-lo)
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your sympathy
    Your simple case of misery has caused me pain
    (you ain't down with me no more)
    Yeah, you ain't down
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your misery
    Cause mamma said what goes around comes back again
    (you ain't down with me no more)
    (you ain't down)
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your sympathy
    Your simple case of misery has caused me pain
    (you ain't down with me no more)
    Yeah, you ain't down
    (you ain't down)
    I don't need your misery
    Cause mamma said what goes around comes back again
    (you ain't down with me no more)
    (you ain't down with me)
    (you ain't down with me)
    (you ain't down with me)
