Yeah
Gonna ball, like I never did ball before
I may never get a break like this in life no more

I got money in my pocket
I ain't begging for friends
Cadillac eldorado
And it's gone to my head
Short time to live
Long time to stay dead
I ain't doin' no favours
I ain't asking for none
Cause I got money
I can pay for my fun
That's the way I want it
That's the way it must be done

Gonna ball, like I never did ball before
Yeah
Gonna ball, like I never did ball before
I may never get a break like this in life no more

I said little mama
We're gonna jump and shout
When that Eldorado holds up
And I can walk it out
I wanna stay pretty baby
You don't know what it's all about
I want no special woman
I want no special friend
I want a good time today yeah
Tomorrow I may be down again
Don't dial my number
I'll tell you when

Gonna ball, like I never did ball before
Yeah
Gonna ball, like I never got balled before
I may never get a break like this in life no more
What'd I tell ya

Gonna ball, like I never did ball before
Yeah
Gonna ball, like I never did ball before
I may never get a break like this in life no more

I got money in my pocket
I ain't begging for friends
Cadillac eldorado
And it's gone to my head
Short time to live
Long time to stay dead
I ain't doin' no favours
I ain't asking for none
Cause I got money
I can pay for my fun
That's the way I want it
That's the way it must be done
Gonna ball, like I never did ball before
Yeah
Gonna ball, like I never got balled before
I may never get a break like this in life no more
