Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?
Work ain't honest but it pays the bills
What we gonna do when they come for you?
Gave me the life that I came to live
Do I really want my baby?
Brother tell me what to do
I know you got to get your hustle on
So I pray
I understand the game, sometimes
And I love you strong but
What you gonna do when they come for you?
Work ain't honest but it pays the bills
What we gonna do when they come for you?
God I can't stand life without ya
Now, me and baby got this situation
