Will I ever get it right? get it right? [Repeat x2]
My momma think I'm outta sight, outta sight [Repeat x2]
It is what it is, it is, it is [Repeat x2]
I do this for my kids, my kids, my kids [Repeat x2]
(understand me!)
Now homey do you dig, do you dig, do you dig?
It is what it is, it is, is is
I do this for my kids, my kids, my kids [Repeat x2]

Now will I ever get it right? get it right?
Even though I'm out at night, livin' life
Girl I'm tryin' to make this money, I ain't even playin'
Course the game I'm in, it ain't even payin'
When I'm on the go, on the go
Everybody wanna know, wanna know
