Went to Carvel to get a milk shake
The car oh yeah there's money in my jacket
Yo Tip I tell you man the devil's tryin it
Tonight I'm taking Sherry out, I don't have jack to wear
Cool I found something so I ironed it
Will someone tell me what did I do to deserve this?
My little brother wants Barney, cool, I'm gettin it
Here we go with the crying, yo he's throwing fits
Finally got what he wanted, now he's good to go
One time, the car was in the shop I had to borrow see
Where the hell can Nicki be? I'm gonna smack her up
I need to hit a honey off, Jarobi pass the phone
Steady smiling like a mother yo I'm read' to bone
Stressed out more than anyone could ever be
Everybody knows I go to Georgia often
With all these trials and tribulations, yo, I've been affected

Problems, problems, problems
Just last week my girl was stressin me
Well I was loving her by the moon ray
Bought a bag of izm from the smoke shop
Now I'm station bound for the Thai sticks
Coach sat me down from the ball team
Some *****s cross town was trying to stick me
Picked up this girl in the hooptie
Pay for this, pay for that, loot for nails and hair
Go and get a bloody job, then can we look cute
She wasn't even all of that just another hooker
Sometimes you got put the hoes in their friggin' place

Problems, problems, problems, Jesus Christ I'm havin
Problems, problems, problems
Hah, and you'll be alright, knowhatI'msayin?
Tribe Called Quest, Shaheed and Tip

Zulu Nation in the house, huh (come on, come on)
My man Skeff is in the house, huh (come on, come on)
Bob Power in the house, huh (come on, come on)
My man Litro in the house, huh (come on, come on)
Help me out y'all, help me out now
Help me out God, I really need ya
Help me out y'all, help me out now
Really need ya, to help me out now
Help me out y'all, help me out now
Help me out God, I really need ya
