It's Your Life Lyrics

It's Your Life - Too $hort

It's your life don't be stupid d**e

 

 

 

Cause when you waste it

 

It's your life don't don't be stupid d**e

 

 

Cause when you waste it

 

Nowwwwwwwwwwww I come from the Oakland town

Task force roll and rock cold cracked down

Young brothers my age makin dollars so long

 

Drive a brand new Benz with a cellular phone

See his diamonds and gold call him Big Bank Bob

Got a ring for each finger and he can't get a job

This is not a song I made about crack

 

It's all about losin what you can't get back

 

Cause the name of the game is to control yo' life

And all the things you do you must do them right

It's not my life it's on you baby

 

What's really goin on is that cash money

 

How you make it it doesn't matter to me

Work at MacDonald's or just slang them ki's

Or you can be like me and go straight legit

 

Drive a brand new Benz and they can't say sh*t

 

It's your life don't be stupid d**e

 

 

Cause when you waste it

 

It's your life don't be stupid d**e

 

 

Cause when you waste it

 

Partners in your face ain't even your friend

 

Probably have to blast him if you see him again

 

And if you don't blast him you'll get shot in the head

Seven days later you'll be buried and dead

I can't be like that the only thing you fear

 

Homeboy you can't see it but you know it's there

It's called tomorrow whatcha gonna do with that

 

Cut school sell a few dopefiends crack

It's not a one-way street it's more like a dead-end

So if you take it you better turn back my friend

I know a lot of young brothers don't think things through

They really don't know what they wanna do

 

When you lag you lose you start payin your dues

You can't kick back and let your bankroll stack

 

You'll be stuck on stupid for smokin a friend

Ten years from now you'll still be in the pen

 

It's your life don't be stupid d**e

 

 

 

Cause when you waste it

 

It's your life don't be stupid d**e

 

 

 

Cause when you waste it

 

I got my eighteens pumpin ridin the five

 

People lookin at me like I stole the ride

Am I a gangster player makin them G's

 

Coc*ine dealer with the Z's and V's

Can't tell em nothin so I say "Whassup "

They get mad I don't give a f**k

I keep ridin sidin whippin and dippin

Look at all my homeboys trippin

They'll knock you out one punch like the champ

 

Goin to jail is like summer camp

We shake hands one day kill each other the next

And if you don't like it it's just like that

Cause I come from the city of d**e

It couldn't be saved by John the Pope

But since I have the chance I'll say in the rhyme:

We have to stop the killin sometime (soon)

It's your life don't be stupid d**e

 

 

Cause when you waste it

 

It's your life don't be stupid d**e

 

 

 

Cause when you waste it

 

It's your life don't be stupid d**e

 

 

Cause when you waste it

 

It's your life don't be stupid d**e

 

 

Cause when you waste it
