Everything is fair when you're living in the city
Looking at Miss Lane, it was the fast lane
She just got a Benz, she rides with her friends
Rollin down the block, checking out the spots
She knows she's the woman, can't nobody touch her
Tried to make my moves on Miss Lane, she called me young boy
You young boy, my love toy, I doubt that very highly
Business oriented, egos never dented
Distractions never hurt, always did the work
Queen of the feats, thrive to compete
She was justified, couldn't get a job
Pulling out the ooh wop, listening to doo-wop
That's all ya heard
"Everything is fair when you're living in the city"
She's not a big kahuna, wish I met her sooner
Put me on her roster, to rid her of impostors
Love is my motive, now I'm drug promotive
Supplied me with the squeezy to make my life easy
But don't you let me catch you with your joint up in these *****es
'cause if you play me out, I think I'll let ya be
I played my cards well, try to live swell
But then I really wasn't, she had a fly cousin
Elaine, she kinda new, that I would do the do
That's all that really mattered, he money never splattered
You can't really blame her for holding on a flamer
A ten clip salute, honey here's a troop
Top, top
