  • I remember how it all began
    I used to sing dirty raps to my east side fans
    Back then I knew ya could'ntstop this rap
    No m.c. could rock like that
    Then the new style came, the bass got deeper
    Ya gave up the mike and bought you a beeper
    Do ya wanna rap or sell coke?
    Brothers like you ain't never been broke
    People wanna say it's just my time
    Brothers like me had to work for mine
    Eight years on the mike and I'm not jokin
    Sir too short comin straight from oakland
    California, home of the rock
    Eight woofers in the trunk, beatin down the block
    Short dog, I'm that rappin man
    I said it before and I ll say it again

    Life is too short
    Too short
    Life is too short

    Life is to some people unbearable
    Committin suicide and that's terrible
    Was it much too much or nothing big?
    If ya live my life, you'd be fightin to live
    Life is to me my main asset
    I be doin all right and keep it just like that
    Chill out at the house and pump that bass
    I'm tryin to get rich as I rock the place
    Everybodys got that same old dream
    To have big money and fancy things
    Drive a brand new benz, keep your banck right here
    Never hear me stutter once because I talk real clear
    It's on you, homeboy, watcha gonna do?
    You can take my advice and start workin, fool
    Or you can close your ears and run your mouth
    And one day, homeboy, ya soon find out

    Life is too short
    Too short
    Life is too short

    Life is too short, would you agree?
    While I'm livin my life, don't mess with me
    It's been a long time, baby, since I first got down
    But I still keep makin these funky sounds
    Cause I don't stop rappin, that's my theme
    I make a lot of money, do you know what I mean?
    Like this, complicated ya must stay up
    Ya asked a simple question boy, don't say what?
    Ya only live once and ya callin it hell
    Policeman tryin to take ya to jail
    You could give a man time but you don't know
    I a matter of time, I'll be runnin the show
    Now another young buck wants to be on top
    Makin big money, slangin hop
    The task force tryin ta peel your cap
    Turn around, homeboy, ya better watch your back

    Life is too short
    Too short
    Life is too short

    You can take back all the things you give
    But ya can't take back the days you live
    Life is to some peole whove been on earth
    Livin every single day for what it's worth
    I live my life just how I please
    Satisfy one person I know, that's me
    Work hard for the things I achieve in life
    And never rap fake when I'm on the mike
    Cause if a dream is all you got, homeboy
    Ya gotta turn that dream into the real mccoy
    Not time to waste, just get on that case
    Ya can't be down cause ya need to taste
    A good life livin like a king on a throne
    Gettin everything ya want and tryin to have all your own
    So life
    Don't be stupid though
    Cause when ya waste it, you'll know

    Life is
    Life is
    All right, that's it
