Genre: Hip Hop
length: 4:31
I had a lady once stop me on the street
I was wearing white shoes and she says
'I'm glad you're sticking wit the white shoes'
She says 'it makes me feel good'

Take this good advice
If they're gonna judge ya fo' life
Say we can't always be fly
We gon' be good long as them sneakers white
You'll be alright
Said you'll be alright
Said you'll be alright
Said you'll be alright

Gucci S. Dots, whole hood had 'em
Ice cream before the hypebeasts that's into fashion
Being for real, yo try bein' Pharrell
When yo black ass in a back class, the frontin' was real
No Lauren London, we was on a budget
Ya know, sharing Old Navy so the army could be fresh in public
Where the sneaker stores and laundromats get all the money
Cuz it ain't bout what you're doin', 'bout how you're looking
When they luv ya fo' yo status and yo catalog
And everybody got a jersey to play along
Back then the hoes checkin' fo' yo zapatos
So even dirty niggas had the foams


(Verse 2)
Biotech trainers on the way to work
And we would quietly complain while Eric would lurk
That was the PG Plaza manager, managing us
Yeah I'm standing in Lucky 7s but slinging them Lugz
Still have them J's fo' the low, low, and I could get 'em early
But I'm not without a conscience, I see people out there hurting
Got 'em fo' Penny Foams that was bought at this very store
And I think that was my shift, then again I'm not very sure
And that's a lot that can get to ya
When you're not selling drugs but the outcome is similar
Cuz out come them niggas wit pistols, telling ya give 'em up
Now out come the moms wit tissues cuz ya ain't give a fuck
Free lunch fo' everyone, income was very uuh
On the second and 16th everyone would have every one
And Reebok would carry pump, and that's not the scary part
These niggas luv white shoes so much they'd be buried in them

She says 'it makes me feel good'

(Bridge x4)
You'll be alright


No matter how good or lavish us niggas got it
We just a bunch of ravenous addicts livin' fo' fancy haberdashery
