One of the great songs of the past 20 years. For some reason, I just thought about it...

Ice Cube - It Was A Good Day

Just waking up in the morning, gotta thank God
I don't know, but today seems kinda odd
No barking from the dog, no smog
And mama cooked the breakfast wit no hog
I got my grub on, but didn't pig out
Finally got a call from a girl I wanna dig out
Hooked it up for later as I hit the do'
Thinkin' will I live, another 24
I gotta go, cause I got me a drop-top
And if I hit the switch, I can make the ass drop
Had to stop at a red light
Lookin' in my mirror, not a jacker in sight
And everything is alright
I got a beep from Kim, and she can fuck all night
Called up the homies and I'm askin' y'all
Which park, are y'all playing basketball
Get me on the court and I'm trouble
Last week fucked around and got a triple-double
Freakin' niggas every way like MJ
I can't believe, today was a good day
Shit

Drove to the pad and hit the showers
Didn't even get no static from the cowards
Cause just yesterday them fools tried to blast me
Saw the police and they rolled right past me
No flexin'
Didn't even look in a nigga's direction as I ran the intersection
Went to Short Dogg's house
They was watchin' YO! MTV Raps
What's the haps on the craps
Shake 'em up, shake 'em up, shake 'em up, shake 'em
Roll 'em in a circle of niggas and watch me break 'em
With the 7, 7, 11, 7, 11, 7 even back do' Lil' Joe
I picked up the cash flow
Then we played bones, and I'm yellin' Domino
Plus nobody I know got killed in South Central L.A.
Today was a good day
Shit

Left my nigga's house paid
Picked up a girl been tryna fuck since the 12th grade
It's ironic, I had the booze, she had the chronic
The Lakers beat the Supersonics
I felt on the big fat fanny, pulled out the jammy
And killed the poonany
And my dick runs deep, so deep
So deep put her ass to sleep
Woke her up around 1
She didn't hesitate, to call Ice Cube the Top Gun
Drove her to the pad and I'm coastin'
Took another sip of the potion, hit the three wheel motion
I was glad everything had worked out
Dropped her ass off and then chirped out
Today was like one of those fly dreams
Didn't even see a berry flashin' those high beams
No helipcopter lookin' for a murder
2 in the mornin', got the Fat Burger
Even saw the lights of the Goodyear Blimp
And it read "Ice Cube's a Pimp"
Drunk as hell but no throwin' up
Half way home and my pager's still blowin' up
Today I didn't even have to use my AK
I gotta say it was a good day
Shit

Hey wait, wait a minute Pooh, stop this shit
What the fuck I'm thinkin' about?
