Lisa Left Eye Lopes - Rags to the riches



Tekst piosenki:


  
   A quick story from rags to riches
  Comin' to you from Supernova (AKA Left Eye)
  Give it to 'em, give it to 'em, give it to 'em (ha ha)
  
  I'm goin', I'm goin' from rags to riches (ha ha ha ha)
  I'm goin', I'm goin' from rags to riches (ha ha ha ha)
  
  I started off as an army brat (Atten-hut!)
  Seven months old class act
  I was racing down the block
  As a matter of fact
  I could've been a track star (I guess I am)
  I stacked bars
  Comin' through your system in them phat cars (uh)
  Cross country isn't that far
  It's like I'm in the race, don't know who you cats are
  See one day I fell from grace, landed in this place
  My innocence erased from talkin' back to my momma's face
  Like I was lost in space
  Without a trace, cuttin' class, bein' Mrs. Fast Ass
  Gettin' blasted with my dad, got caught up in the flash
  My Nana goin' straight mad, had to make the dash
  Saw a fella through the streets
  Who would give anything for cash
  And anything to crash in anybody's path
  If everything I had
  Look at what I could grab (check it)
  And it was just a bunch of niggas
  
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  From rags to riches
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  I bet you I'mma be the richest
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  From rags to riches
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  I bet you I'mma be the richest
  
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  From rags to riches
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  I bet you I'mma be the richest
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  From rags to riches
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  I bet you I'mma be the richest
  
  Ding ding the bell ring, landlord causin' a scene
  Mama diggin' for her green, last dolla (dolla bill)
  To pay for the phone bill, electric bill, water bill
  How you feel when you make a mill?
  And move your mama to a house on the hill
  With picture framed TV's on the wall
  Hard and I'm pissed when she wanna ball
  A cell phone for when she wanna call
  She ballin' out of control
  With her own bank roll, I got her back though
  One for the money and two for the show
  Mama floors stayin' clean 600 green outside
  Showin' them the many ways that God provides in life
  Or who can see the bigger picture
  And tell a story from goin' dead broke to gettin' richer
  Knowin' I'm gettin' with you in this paper chase
  Rags to riches all up in your face
  
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  From rags to riches
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  I bet you I'mma be the richest
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  From rags to riches
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  I bet you I'mma be the richest
  
  I remember sellin' weed
  Can't believe that I was poisonin' my folk
  Now I let my throat be the antidote
  Always kept my hopes high
  Now mama don't cry, 'cause I'll be close by
  With the most high I was playin' Robin Hood (in the hood)
  Little Red Riding Hood
  Til' the barrel pointed where I stood (yeah, I stood)
  But walked away like I was absolutely positively sure I could
  Attitude on drugs
  A few dollars in the bucket
  And scheming steady dreaming
  For a chance to make some duckets
  Caused a little ruckus on the sideline
  From the alley way to Cali, on the Grammy day
  Went from disarray to mayday, mayday, mayday
  Ran away from the sickness with a quickness
  And went from rags to riches
  
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  From rags to riches
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  I bet you I'mma be the richest
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  From rags to riches
  I'm goin' from rags to riches
  I bet you I'mma be the richest
  
  I'm lovin' everybody that's tryin' to get it from rags to riches
  From nuttin' to somethin' (ha ha right)
  You know what I'm sayin'
  I'm nuttin' but a quickie story from rags to riches
  To all my mournin' ghetto superstars out there
  Much love!
  I'm backin' everybody, East coast, West coast, the Midwest
  Everything you know what I'm sayin', it's all hip hop
  Much love!
  
  We all came from rags and went to riches
  And the ones that's still messin' with them rags
  You know what I'm sayin'
  Keep your head up (know what I'm sayin')
  Somethin' bound to happen
  For sure though...
