    Classic 2000 and forever...

    [Hook-Skinny DeVille]
    At first you don't succeed, try it all again
    I'd die 'fore I quit, so indeed I'ma win
    'Til the fat lady sing the last note in the hymn
    Don't worry 'bout me, I'ma grind 'til then
    [repeat]

    [Skinny DeVille]
    They say fame is like cheers, where everybody knows your name
    Success at any level has a feel I can't explain
    You win some, you lose, it's on how you play the game
    But you gotta know the rules and these dues are insane
    If you make it to the top, congrats, good for you
    You don't have to sell drugs, you can do it through school
    You can make it by your damn self, it's better with yo' crew
    But choose your team wisely, don't pick a bunch of fools
    You gotta motivate, through ya hate infested lakes
    Maneuver through the snakes and the sharks, white and great
    They was with you from the start, is always what they say
    Watchin' every step along the way that you take
    Nobody's perfect, see we all gon' make mistakes
    Ya live and ya learn, fast life, pump the brakes
    Last night's not today, and right now's not tomorrow
    Livin' for the moment, then you're time's already borrowed

    [Hook]
    At first you don't succeed, try it all again
    I'd die 'fore I quit, so indeed I'ma win
    'Til the fat lady sing the last note in the hymn
    Don't worry 'bout me, I'ma grind 'til then
    [repeat]

    [Fishscale]
    Yo, uh, my story
    Fishscale bumpin, murderville jumpin
    Must be a wrap 'cause I'm ballin' up somethin'
    Packin' up my bags in the old Chevrolet
    And if they ask where I'm goin' tell em
    Bringin' it back to the A
    State trooper got me, beat me like Rodney
    Left the big city, turned a Saint like Shockey
    Didn't have much but what the good Lord could spot me
    Ask me where I'm goin, say
    I'm bringin' it back to the A
    Music stop sellin', friends start bailin'
    I'm failin' everything, not to mention I'm a felon
    My cousin doin' time and I don't know what I should tell him
    'sides "Keep ya head up, cuz"
    I'm bringin' it back to the A
    Small town country boy, big city dreamer
    Double-wide trailer, pickup truck and a Beamer
    Tunnel vision driver, honk your horn if you see us
    If you wonder where I'm goin bruh
    I'm bringin' it back to the A!

    [Hook]
    At first you don't succeed, try it all again
    I'd die 'fore I quit, so indeed I'ma win
    'Til the fat lady sing the last note in the hymn
    Don't worry 'bout me, I'ma grind 'til then
    [repeat]
