Don't you call me brother
(Eddie:}
Unless you really, really
mean it

Don't you call me brother

Unless you get yourself together

(Walter:)
How can you call me brother
when you don't even respect my woman
when I cant even trust you behind my back
(Eddie:)
How can you call me brother -- How can you do it?
whe you keep tryin' to rip me off?
