Out Cold


out cold: a black colloquial expression
               indicating outrageous and/or
               incendiary behavior


Hey, man ... your girl is out cold
Did you hear what she did to your ex?
Put the hammers on her, gave her the mean flex
I heard she didn't like what your ex-old lady
said about you
So your girl went boom,
she raised up and execute
At the park, she had all the wine and beer bottles
raised in a ghetto salute
It was getting dark,
still she proceeded to execute her beatdown,
which was pure fury and stone resolute
Your girl was out cold
I never seen her before let the steering wheel go ...
the girl just lost control
Your woman went blink
Y'know how it be, when you just react,
and don't take time to think
She was cat quick with the kicks,
she was jackhammer with the fists
She had your ex on the ground, begging her to stop
Sobbing hard and wiping her bloody mouth
Man, your woman really stung the swollen face of Nicole
Like I said: your girl was totally out cold
Bro, I never seen her act like that before
Guess you got a girl who can light you up,
should you go down the wrong, dark road
Your woman can get frosty ... deliver the heat
Got a temper like hot coals in a kettle stove;
she will burn you up, if any drama unfold 
Your girl gets dangerous, nuclear postal ...
lets the atomic beast in, when she goes out cold
