The People Lyrics - Nappy Roots

Review The Song (0)



Money means nothing
My people mean everything
Promised when I got a little money that I would never change
Budget's still the same
I kept my feet on earth
And I kept my promise
I kept my people first
My friends and my family
Ya'll helped make a man of me
When i was down and out
Ya'll lent a helpin hand to me
So I'm returnin the favor
I passin it forward
Adversity don't run away from it
Run towards it
Face it, embrace it
sponsored links
I promise you can make it
Time spent with your family
You should keep that sacred
It's worth more than any amount of money
So i would never let the money snatch that from me

People get money and they start actin funny
It's a money makin world ya see
We see a five year sum and we all gettin somethin
Because money ain't the world to me
I do it for the people the people the people
Because money ain't the world to me
The people the people the people
Because money ain't the world to me

Daddy was a garbage man
Mama worked real hard
Me, I'm a commom man
And depend on the lord
Smartest men admit it
Didn't have a million dollars
Only thing you said to me
What don't kill you makes you stronger
Humble beginning
Make some sweet ?
Look at Oprah Winfrey, Tupac and John Lennon
Enroll, set goals
What's your next move
Now we have a good president
What you gon' do
Be a better man
Lend a friend a hand
Grow spiritually
Help out your community
It's the love in mama's cooking
That make it taste good
It's the people not the money
That makes the neighborhood

People get money and they start actin funny
It's a money makin world ya see
We see a five year sum and we all gettin somethin
Because money ain't the world to me
I do it for the people the people the people
Because money ain't the world to me
The people the people the people
Because money ain't the world to me

You see I do it for the love
Sometimes i do it just because
For some reasons i can't explain
I didn't do for the bud
See Nappy Roots is a movement
That hovers a class above
The average and the obvious
Sell the conscious like a lot of us
We struggle from time to time
Did then you're opposite of an optimist
But the hard work pays off
I'm livin proof and promisin this
Educate yourself so when you finally see some dollars and cents
You won't want proof as soon as you make it
But make it to your grandchildren's kids
Because they are the future
We are the ones damagin it
Abusin the opportunities with polutions and contaminants
Don't make any damn sense
This movie doesn't have a sequel
If you don't do for you and your kids then
Do it for the rest of the people

People get money and they start actin funny
It's a money makin world ya see
We see a five year sum and we all gettin somethin
Because money ain't the world to me
I do it for the people the people the people
Because money ain't the world to me
The people the people the people
Because money ain't the world to me
