lyrics

(Intro)

Uh huh, this is Edgar Allen Floe right here
J Wheels
I’m about to take y’all where I reside at man
This is where I rest at
You’re about to witness greatness, check it

(Verse 1)

Yeah, welcome to NC where we show love
Got the most distinguished gentlemen
Plus our own thugs
Can’t be repping just one city
A hundred counties be getting busy
I’mma just glide statewide, yo you riding with me?
Grab shotgun now, and buckle up
Some grab the shotgun while you knuckle up
Unfair you say, but them young boys don’t play
Even OGs low key, hustling old and gray
In North Click, there’s two sides to Raleigh-Durham
One side hates visitors, and they probably hurt them
Other side takes pride in southern hospitality
Hunger pains, step inside the house and grab a seat
Somebody’s momma can show you the soul food
And even sip with you, even if she don’t know you
There’s so much to reveal and it’s about time
Shine Caroline shine Caroline shine

(Chorus)

You so fine, Caroline
Such a dime, Caroline
You so fine, Caroline
Share what’s mine, Caroline

(Verse 2)

Yeah, this is North Caro L-I-N-A
The freshest garments, stay fly all day
That’s Fayettenam shit, they don’t try to stay paid
They hit the target, bullseye, get cake
What up Wilson, they call it Wide Awake
You caught sleeping you could lie in grave
Danger, strangers decide to escape
Wrong turn, concern won’t hide from your face
When you in North Cack
Floe’s chillin’, Actionvillian
Is willing to hit him with skill and realism, feel him
They all feel me son, from here to Wilmington
when I used to hustle Undefined demos
Hell no, you ain’t holding me back my mellow
I’m changing the game like the four from Greensboro
So get in where you sit in and rep the whole team
I’m telling you mayne
Carolina’s walk is so mean

(Chorus)

(Verse 3)

In North Cock-It-Back, a deeper meaning to that
More than bullshit at your party with notorious gats
Check it, worldwide they respect the athletics
Cocking back the basketball and hockey stick, best at it
It’s a habit that we won’t break and not up for debate
Even I got some high school varsity tapes
Highlights of my B-Ball highlife
Stayed on the rise right
Slam dunk, keep the fans eyes bright
In North Cakalak, you’ll get lapped around the track
Either sprinting or long distance contend for The Olympics
And college, of course UNC is the truth
But you can’t forget about our HBCUs
NC Central and A&T, something that you gotta see
Aggies vs Eagle is classic like this track is
She got it all, flyest you ever saw
This is Carolina homie, just thought I’d remind y’all

(Chorus)

(End)
