'Twas da night befo' Christmas & all in the hood,

> Not a homie was stirring cuz it was all good.

> The tube socks was hung on the window sill

> and we all had smiles up on our grill.

> Mookie and BeBe was snug in the crib

> in the back bedroom, cuz that's how we live.

> And Moms in her do-rag and me with my nine,

> had just gotten busy cuz girlfriend is fine.

All of a sudden a lowrider rolled by,

> Bumpin' phat beats cuz the system's fly.

> I bounced to the window at a quarter pas'

> 'Bout ready to pop a cap in somebody's ass!

> well anyway....

I yelled to my lady, Yo peep this!

> She said, Stop frontin' & just mind yo' bidness.

> I said, for real doe, come check dis out.

We weren't even buggin', no worries, no doubt.

> Cuz bumpin' an thumpin' from around da way

> Was Santa, 8 reindeer and a sleigh.

Da beats was kickin', da ride was phat

> I said, "Yo red Dawg, you all that!"

> He threw up a sign and yelled to his boyz,

> "Ay yo, give it up, let's make some noise!"

> To the top of the projects & across the strip mall,

> We gots ta go, I got a booty call!"

He pulled up his ride on the top a da roof,

> and sippin' on a 40, he busted a move.

I yelled up to Santa, "Yo ain't got no stack!"

> he said, "Damn homie, deese projects is wack!

> But don't worry black, cuz I gots da skillz

> I learnt back when I hadda pay da billz."

> Out from his bag he pulled 3 small tings

> a credit card, a knife, and a bobby pin.

> He slid down the fire exscape smoove as a cat,

> and busted the window wit' a b-ball bat.

I said, "Whassup, Santa? Whydya bust my place?"

> he said,"You best get on up out my face!"

> His threads was all leatha, his chains was all gold,

> His sneaks was Puma and they was 5 years old.

He dropped down the duffle, Clippers logo on the side.

> Santa broke out da loot and my mouf popped open wide.

> A wink of his eye and a shine off his gold toof,

> He cabbage patched his way back onto the roof

> He jumped in his hooptie wit' rims made of chrome,

> To tap that booty waitin' at home.

And all I heard as he cruised outta sight,

> was a loud and hearty.....
