Today we discover the Small World Future of....Lesley Cartwright
The year is 2083.....
It's a Charlie World! He keeps lookin' at me.
It's Charlie's World! It ain't easy him seeing me.
If I was him, I'd hate me too.
He watching me in park bay like it's 82!
I'd hate him but he's making me the news,
I'll shank you CAT!
That night in 82 the parking lot was stacked,
I grabbed my Shade and got my eyes stamped black.
I could barely walk around 'cos the city is pack.
I walked to the mezz and lit off some black spats - BAP! BAP! BAP!
Dead cats, tired of gettin' spied on by mean cats.
I'd hate to be a wrong kid, but now you seen my tru-light?
I know you have, 'cos your eyes are ticking like a hitbomb!
My head lit more than Tom Tom!
These scenes, I run these.
I need the hide 'n shout "Stop looking at me Dummy!"
