Produced by Skee-Lo & Walter Kahn. Hey, this is radio station WSKEE We're taking calls on the wish line Making your wacky wishes come true Hello? I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat And a six four Impala. I wish I had a brand new car so far, I got this hatchback And everywhere I go, yo, I gets laughed at And when I'm in my car I'm laid back I got an 8-track, and a spare tire in the backseat, but that's flat And do you really wanna know what's really wack? See, I can't even get a date, so what do you think of that?

Skee-Lo Explains The Origins Of I Wish. Skee-Lo’s nightly song, as he calls it, would often stem from a freestyle. Those freestyles, over his beats, would later grab Grammy nods, right out a South Central coffee-shop. Every song on that album was songs that I recorded for the next Thursday to perform for the underground club, including ‘I Wish. He continued, ‘I Wish’ was first performed at The Good Life. It’s a Good Life classic, I performed it twice there
