|Lyrics:||[intro sample vocals from "American Pimp"]|
So much shit goes on it makes me doubt about a God --
you know, makes me ask
well if there is a God then why am I in the situation that I'm in?
why is my family going through certain situations
when I don't think that they deserve it nah
Or why do good people suffer so much and bad people prosper so much?
fades out as instrumental comes in]
Goin out...we light
this J up right here...for all the hard working folk
cross this country, cross the world
everybody on the grind everyday 9 to 5, 8 to 12 -- you know how we do it
Hand to hand,
[Chorus - singing]
I been working all my life but ain't got
nothin' to show
I ain't tellin' you nothing you don't already know
I been working all my
life but ain't got nothin' to show
Like this world just don't want us to groooow
working all my life but ain't got nothin' to show
I ain't tellin' you nothing you don't already
I been working all my life but ain't got nothin' to show
Wanna run up in tha white
house and kick in tha do' ohhhhh
What a nigga gonna eat when the refrigerator
Work all week let the bossman pimp me?
Can't pay no rent till the 15th
call the police to evict me
Lookin for a job in the want ads
Have you ever been to jail?
Know they gone ask
Ever took a piss test that you didn't pass?
In between jobs in the past?
How you get cash?
I done worked over hot ass stoves
I done picked up trash off
Winter time in the streets and the cold
Many times had to sleep in my clothes on the
What you know bout bein' po' seei
