Yeah man, these folks think just cause I won some American Idol show, everythang ain't the same. Man you kno they see me on
From hangin out late in the Elma, to Beverly Hills, California. From hea-tin up the leftovers,to becomin a restaurant
From a litle block, from a little hood, to the whole world and it's all good. And if ya didn't know, I was a star before

No block, No Ruben
No boulevards, No Ruben
No stayin up late nights, tellin mama everything gone be alright.
There would be no Ruben.
From wearin my big brother's clothes, to buyin him a new wardrobe (yes I did) From listenin to Fred Hammond, to hangin out
Was a star (was a star) before the show (before the show) but if it waas...
No hood, No Ruben
No cornerspots, No Ruben
And if it wansn't no yoouuu...

This goes out to the barbershops, the black man's country club.
Motivation. And that's whhyyyy,I had to do this dedication cause if it waaaaaaas...
No hood, No Ruben
No cornerspots, No Ruben
And if it wansn't no yoouuu...

If it wasn't for the block (No Ruben)
If it wasn't for the boulevards (No Ruben)
Stayin up (late nights) late nights (tellin mama) tellin mama (everything gone beee) all right (heeeyy)
Em again. [repeat]
