"Bobby James" as written by Pharrell L Williams and Chad Hugo....
Hi I'm seventeen and my name is Bobby James
Everyday in school all my classmates call me names
And so this pusher introduced me to this thing
He said it makes you forget pain but makes you sing
I got pushed at home at school I was a wuss
Now my life is a domino that pushers push
'Cause I tried it once but I tried it again
Ran away two weeks later I seen my friend
And I said

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]
Hey there mister give me some cash
I'm high as hell and I'm ready to blast
I'm just one hit away from being passed out
Young and assed out

Man this would be cute if this were just a dream
A lesson for you to learn except you'd learn through me
You know like in the movies when it ends with a scream
Well fuck face I got news this is real and I did things

Traveling from Virginia to Cali broke
Hitchhike and rides me in my calico
Shoplift for food when it was desire
I miss my family
Miss my friends
I'm so high and so tired

[Chorus]

Hey there
Would you help me please
Could you spare some change for the world
For the world to see

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis song is totally amazing and it is my favorite on the CD. I also agree with LLKooL - I hate that BUP BUP BAAA or whatever the hell it is. It doesnt fit in with the song, atleast I don't think lol but I love Pharrell nonetheless.
