Yo, I'm thinkin of a master plan
I'm blingin with the cash in hand
I got a muh'****in right to shine *****
I paid my dues, I earned this cake I abuse
I burn the paper the way I choose
I gotta, handle my B.I., and I do
And hold the T-I-N-Y tool
With a mind of its own, no tellin what it might do
Mess with my loot and it might pop
It might lock, it might not, it might SHOOT~!
And it's not the chance to take, just like it's not the answer
Who out for the paper? Hands UP
Lay back and pay that dancer
Holla if you ever been placed in handcuffs
Survival the name of the game, you wanna play?
You wanna race don't wait for the bang!
Let's go

Gotta go and get the money worldwide, let's get it
Gotta go and get the money can't stop hustlin baby
Gotta go and get the money ("the money") it's for you
Gotta go and get the dough okay! Mo-ney

(Gotta go and) get these nuts
Yes it reads cheese or bust
Dilla with the gangsta ****
Now let me say it again, and say it with feeling
Dilla with the gangsta ****~! Here to spit the flame
Here to get the bank and split
Here to twist the dank and hit it
Here to twist the game, here to flip this change and spend it
Down here in the valley of death, we walk that
Talk crap and wind up wet in the alley
Survival, the name of the game
And everywhere I go they play it the same
So stay mindin your own and grind and roll
Keep shinin, keep headlinin shows
And get that dough let's eat my *****
Let's not be broke next week my *****!

Cause you know how we do when we get the money so keep stackin your chips
Gotta go and get the money Dill' keep mackin your *****
Gotta go and get the money don't stop, just do it
Gotta go and get the dough we gon' rock on and, yeah

Gotta go and on and, on, yeah
Rock on and, we don't quit
Rock on and on and on and
Rock on and, yeah!
Rock on and on and on rock on
