  • [Chorus: Pimp C singing]
    Lord it's so hard, living this life
    A constant struggle each and every day
    Some wonder why, I'd rather die
    Than to continue living this wayyy

    [Pimp C:]
    Ughhhh, I don't wanna do this no mo' (no mo')
    But dis the only thang that I know
    I keep a pistol in my back, and a gauge on the flo' (flo')
    The laws and the d-boys wanna kick in my do' (do')
    I'm a d-boy, didn't graduate
    But I, got Ph.D from Pimp State
    And I, got a Master's Degree in movin weight
    And my, people dependin on me but they gon' be straight
    UHH - I wanna go to service
    But I ain't been in so long, kinda make me feel nervous (nervous)
    Cause they be lookin at me funny
    Watchin the plate when I tithe, put in my money (money)
    I don't wanna go back to that hell
    Rather be dead than doin life in a jail cell
    Die young oh well (well) I had a good life (life)
    They rappin 'bout it but I'm out here payin the price

    [Chorus]

    [Bun B:]
    I wake up out of bed, right after the crack of dawn and
    I give myself a - stretch up, a morning yawn and
    See I'm a pawn in this neighborhood chess game
    Move one step at a time, long as the Lord bless me (f'real)
    I know the rest aim high, I'm tryin to aim it higher (higher)
    Watchin the lames aspire (aspire) to street success mayne (mayne)
    They tryin to blame the fire (fire) but that's like wettin water (water)
    You either burnt or washed out, so get in order (order)
    Everyday it's gettin harder to fuck with the flow
    I'm tryin to keep, all of my motherfuckin ducks in a row (row)
    I gotta see a man 'bout a dog and sell him a cat
    If you don't know, then you don't know, dat's dat
    Shit a dollar outta fifteen cents, I got a dime
    Tryin to hustle up my way to a million, I gotta grind (gotta grind)
    Walkin the line like cash, I'm on my mash
    Two hundred yards behind in a hundred yard dash

    [Chorus]

    [Bun B:]
    Lord I'm sittin here on bended knee, my hands locked, eyes shut
    Askin you to watch over me, no matter what
    Even though I ain't too well behaved, I'm still a child of you
    And faith in my Holy Father is all that keep me smilin through
    The bad times and worse times, through it all
    When my head is hangin low, you help me to stand tall
    The only way I'm a ball, the only way I'm a shine
    Is if you lookin after me while I'm out here on the grind

    [Pimp C:]
    UNGGHH! I know you bless the child that go get it
    I'm the product of the ghetto, the flame of the city
    So I talk the language of the ave
    Forgive my dirty mouth please, I'm whippin slabs
    Fifties, quarters and the whole thangs
    Balance on my life on the fo' beam
    And I need codeine just to say sane
    I'm steady prayin to you but I don't know your real name

    Knahmtalkinbout!
    But I'm under the impression that if your heart is in the right place
    Your prayers gon' get heard anyway
    So some say Jah Jah, some say Allah
    Some say Jesus, some say... Yeshua Ben'ta, knahmalkinbout
    Ay man I just look like this man, knahmtalkinbout
    I ain't get this far bein no square man
    You wanna hide some'n from black folks, they say you can put it in a book
    I don't believe that
    Cause I done read fo' libraries worth of books
    I got some knowledge y'all need to get up on mayne
    But hold a pair of hearts, knahmtalkinbout
    The Forty-Eight Laws of Power, knahmsayin the art of war
    The secret societies of America, knahmtalkinbout
    Everythang ain't what it look like man
    And don't judge every book by it's cover... ya dig!
    Hold up
