    (Lil' Flip)
    I'm an 18 year old CEO
    I got fans that's dyin to see me flow
    my favorite movie is CB-4
    H$E Click you know we throwed
    I'm 6 foot 1 on the digital scale
    I'm a ghetto star and a man as well
    and I'm all about my mail like a man in jail
    I wonder if I put my tape out, can it sell?
    only time will tell how many copies get sold
    and I pray to god that I live to get old
    'cause half of my homeboys already dead
    and the other half doin time with the feds
    I'm like the CincinnatI Reds I'm playin ball for the pennant
    and if I fall while I'm tryin I start from the beginning
    they say practice make perfect and it really paid off
    I'm my own boss now so I can't get laid off
    and I'm gonna stay the same flip no matter what it takes
    and I won't stop rappin no matter how much I make
    Whether I'm rich or broke i'ma still crack jokes
    and I never turn my back on mobbin foes

    [chorus]

    (Lil' Flip)
    I done been through a lot of pain
    at an early age ??? gave me silent game
    I got knowledge but I didn't get it from college man
    I'm not gonna change because I'm flyin private planes
    and if I don't work, my pockets hurt
    man it costs a lot of money livin on this earth
    everybody got to shine but it's my turn
    the early bird gets the worm that's what I learned
    ever since I was a kid I had to ball
    I don't smoke cigarettes and I hate alcohol
    I went from being a janitor to a manager
    when you become a star with me, want to dance with yah
    I'm gonna keep my platinum teeth and my pants saggin
    now everybody want to jump on the band waggon
    I ain't braggin, because I got a little change,
    I ain't gonna let my head blow up 'cause I got a little fame
    now when my cousin died things got a little strange
    I know the block is hot just ask lil wayne
    everybody dream about goin to hollywood
    but look how fast I turned clover land into ???

    [chorus]

    (Lil' Flip)
    everyday I'm on the paper chase
    I gotta win first place in this paper race
    a lot of kids around the world want to take my place
    but momma said boy don't let nobody take your space
    that's why I pay attention, so I can see
    it ain't the army but I'm bein all I can be
    so everyday I shop like I hit the lottery
    I'm Lil' Flip that's the only thing I gotta be

    [chorus]
