Police knock my door, lick up my pal
Rough me up and I can't do a thing
Pick up my line when my telephone ring
Take me to the station black up my hands
Trail me down 'cause I'm hanging with the Snowman
What I'm gonna do? I'm backed and I'm trapped
Slap me in the face and took all of my gap
They have no clues and they wanna get warmer
But Shan won't turn informer

Informer, ya' no say daddy me Snow me I go blame
A licky boom boom down
'Tective man a say, say daddy me Snow me stab someone down the lane
A licky boom boom down
Informer, ya' no say daddy me Snow me I go blame

'Tective man a say, say daddy me Snow me stab someone down the lane

    General CommentThank you very much Cattieloves!

    Finally a serious reaction in the section!

    About him being canadian (white) rapper with a jamaican accent: he also mentions he lives in a ghetto. A ghetto is usually predominately a place where a certain nationality is predominate. In his case it were Jamaicans. But it could have been a Polish ghetto as well. But then no one would 'mind'.

    If you do NOT like a song, dont just spew your frustrations here. Do it on a site or forum meant for that.
    Over here just look up songs you DO like and comment on them.

    Thank you.

    General CommentIf we read between the lines and work to find the *deeper* (giggle) meaning behind Mr. Snow's lyrics, we can see that he is a deep and tortured soul who is speaking about his personal experience of being turned over to the police by someone. In the chorus, he says, "Informer you no say daddy me Snow me or I'll go blam, I'll lick you, boom-boom, damn. Detective mon said daddy me Snow me stab someone down the lane, I'll lick you, boom-boom, damn." Translated into English, this essentially means, "You who have informed the police, if you indeed gave the law enforcement my name, I will kill you with a gun. A man who is a detective said that I stabbed someone down the street, and I will kill you with a gun." But that's not as catchy. :*)

    General CommentCaptain Feral-

    "Deformer. Yoda-took-all-my-dognuts-away. I gots no more today."

    LMFAO!!! I sing that to this song whenever I hear it now and it sounds like it could be the actual lyric.

    This song is fun to listen to because it's 90% gibberish.

    How in the hell did a white, Canadian, Jamacian-sounding rapper make a hit song? And no chasingmoon, I have no idea what the hell 'a-licky boom boom down' means.

    I think I would rather have this song be about Yoda stealing doughnuts than the police catching Snow and taking a look up his ass.

    Also, WTF is a 'dibbie dibbie girl'?

    General CommentJust to fix up a common mistake in the lyrics to this song, as it is here, you'll often find
    "But me born an' raised in the ghetto that's the one I want you to know"
    however, what's he's really saying is:
    "But me born an' raised in ETOBICOKE that's the one I want you to know"

    for those that don't know, Etobicoke is a town on the outskirts of Toronto, where he makes reference a few lines later. He spent most of his life in and around Etobicoke, Ajax, North York, and Toronto.

    As well, I found this interesting: The name Snow, means "Super Notorious Outrageous Whiteboy" - courtesy of whatsthe411on.com/…

    General Commentas much as this song is most certainly a product of its time, let's all do a little research before we label this song gibberish/stupid. he's not singing in english; he's singing in a jamaican language called patois: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
