    Song Info

    Artist:

    Intro

    Know ye not that your body is a temple?

    That the spirit of Jehovah dwells within you,

    Be careful what you eating

    What you drinking

    What you taking in

    It just might be a sin

    Whoa! Yeah!

    Chorus

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Cigarette smokers those who sniffing coke,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Watch what you eating what you taking in its dope,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Cigarette smokers those who sniffing coke,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Just be careful what you taking in.

    Verse 1

    I hear a match light

    Fire burn bright

    One, two, three,

    Cities in flames

    Another youth drop

    From another dope trap

    Mamma asking

    Who’s to blame?

    Daddy crying

    His daughter’s dying

    And little Tommy shooting up his vein

    I don’t know why,

    It is a ghetto cry,

    All the youths them shooting up them lanes

     

    Pre chorus 1

    Tell me why!

    Everybody’s trying to be cool

    Tell me why!

    O Lord! And everybody wants to break the rules

    Dropping outta school

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Cigarette smokers those who sniffing coke,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Watch what you eating what you taking in its dope,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Cigarette smokers those who sniffing coke,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Today you smile but tomorrow you choke.

    Jenny is fifteen, she join a dope team

    Now everything in life’s a misty dream

    Is this realty? Is it fantasy?

    The high price the life of her baby

    When will you realize open up your eyes

    And place some value on the gift of life?

    When will she realize it’s the devils lies

    And take a look into the book of life

     

    Pre chorus 1

    Tell me why!

    Everybody’s trying to be cool

    Come tell me why!

    O Lord, and all the children wanna break the rule dropping outta school

    Chorus

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Cigarette smokers those who sniffing coke,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Watch what you eating what you taking in its dope,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Cigarette smokers those who sniffing coke,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Just be careful what you taking in.

    Pre chorus 1

    Somebody Tell me why!

    Everybody’s trying to be cool

    Skipping school, breaking all the rules,

    Tell me why!

    All the children of today,

    They have gone astray

    I see them…

    Chorus

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Cigarette smokers those who sniffing coke,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Watch what you eating what you taking in its dope,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Cigarette smokers those who sniffing coke,

    Burning up them lives in smoke,

    Just be careful what you taking in.
