La la la la

When I awoke I spent that on a necklace
Man, it's so hard not to act reckless
Get arrested, guess until he get the message
And what'd I do? Act more stupidly
My mama couldn't get through to me
I'm on T.V. talking like it's just you and me
I ain't one of the Cosby's, I ain't go to Hillman
I guess I should've forgot where I came from
La la la la
La la la la
Excuse me, is you saying something?
You can't tell me nothing

This is my life homie, you decide yours
But I couldn't tell you who decide wars
Old folks talking 'bout back in my day
Class started two hours ago, oh, am I late?
And you can live through anything if Magic made it
Ooh, they so sensitive
Then say something where you gon end up apolog'in
A'ight man, holla then
La la la la
La la la la
Excuse me, is you saying something?
You can't tell me nothing

Let that man get cash, let that man get past
If he can move through the rumors, he can drive off fumes
How he stay faithful in a room full of hoes?
So when he buried in a tomb full of gold
Life is a, uh, depending how you dress her
I'm in between, but way more fresher
That's when you die hard
When they reminisce over you, my God
La la la la
La la la la
Excuse me, is you saying something?
You can't tell me nothing

Wait 'til I get my money right
Then you can't tell me nothing right?
