    To everybody in the struggle
    We gonna rise
    Fame and fortune
    And live the Nacirema Dream
    Let’s go!

    [Hook]
    The Nacirema Dream, enjoy the life’s finer things
    I want my lady to live like a queen
    She want her man to live like a king
    It’s bada bing, cha ching and bling bling
    Nacirema Dream, big cars and diamond rings
    I want my mother to live like a queen
    She want her son to live like a king
    It’s bada bing, cha ching and bling bling
    Nacirema Dream

    [Verse 1]
    God reveal my treasure
    I always knew I would build my cheddar
    Pop criss like Webber, everybody who felt my pain
    I want yall to feel my pleasure
    When people said I wouldn’t get a deal
    I never listened cuz who they told was ill I’m better
    But I still had to hustle so crills I measured
    Always had a way out cuz skills I endeavored
    He jumpin over me to be the king, not clever
    You knew this cuz life is a game of chess, not checkers
    On a property, finally found the treasure in yall strivin
    Stay away from the jeopardy, probably ecstasy
    No poverty whether your plan is treachery
    Lottery is filled from ebony to ivory
    So now my mama don’t gotta worry, kids don’t gotta worry
    I got more dead presidents than a cemetery

    [Hook]

    [Verse 2]
    Watching that flat screen cable
    Eating life crumbs, I’m over the kitchen table
    Every day I’m getting calls from another label
    Remember when I used to boost more than jumper cables
    Living in this Nacirema Dream, I’m able
    To push the May-Back like an extra day of April
    I’m nice, I rock ice just like Ice
    Anyone Vanilla Ice, Ice T, just ice
    Ice Cube, ice dudes, make the right moves
    I’m a leader, niggas follow me just like rules
    Cuz I’m the best star livin, 10 pie flippin
    Next guy getting on the next dive mission
    Puff the best lie, given, NY pimpin
    Watch yo taillight vision, in the lengths I’m whippin
    Nacirema Dream, it’s American spelled backwards
    Living the American Dream is what I practice

    [Hook]

    [Verse 3]
    Fish bones dry in the kitchen (Nacirema)
    Beans don’t burn on the grill (Dream)
    Took a whole lot of to ride in
    Just to get me a record deal (Nacirema)
    Man I’m way up in the big league (Dream)
    Getting my turn that back (Nacirema)
    As long as we rich
    You and me baby
    Ain’t nothing wrong with that
    I remember when they used to call us the free lunch bunch
    Now we sign autographs when they see us work
    Hop in the airplane, the weed up up
    In the way all day while you re-up chop
    When we land in yo city, they feed us lunch
    We touch down like 1, 2, 3 hut hut
    I’m reflection of this, I learned these tactics
    Put the word in a mirror, watch it reflect backwards

    [Hook]
