Nobody Knows Lyrics

I didn't know there'd be troubles along he way
Nobody told me nothin', nobody told me nothin', nothin'

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I went through eight different schools and twelve different years
That's thirty different teachers over ten thousand different peers
And I done fought nearly everyone, been suspended every time
Besides a few were felony and commited dirty crimes

But never braggin' no, I just want you to see me where I have been
I never proud of it so I don't have to go back there again
And I used to go like house to house sleepin' on couch to couch
Walk around sticking out my hands, looking for a hand out

Only thing got handed out was more bills
Only thing that pulled me out was my will
God told me the sun don't chill
Determined to make use of one of these skills

Ain't for that our or go and beat the block
Ain't no way you can heat the cops
Ain't no way I could beat the clock
Just a matter of time, shut down your shop

You stay up day and nights, livin' this way of life
I was young and restless all my children came and then I had a guidin' light
No more of that sittin', man, sittin' and waitin' and thinkin'
Somebody coming to take me up off the streets, but now I know

Nobody told me that road would be easy, yeah
I don't believe I made it this far
My whole life, man, I've been working so hard

And I know nobody told me that the road would be easy
I can't believe I made it this far
My whole life, man, I've been working so hard and I know

I can tell you right now, I'm sayin' I could sit here and count on one hand
How many people see me graduate
I know a few that did but a bunch that ain't
Some folks showin' up in swarms, waitin' for me to go on
Wanna see Nelly perform, wasn't so poor before

I became this household name, I was playin' on little league games
Nobody cared If I go on for three, nobody out here rootin' for me
But my Momma supported me in everything, "Why she get everything?"
Some people got the nerve to ask, y'all kiss my ass, that's my Momma

Got a sister that need my help and it can't be solved with wealth
Give anythin' that I have just to see her in perfect health
Now we out here complainin', I got work to do
How bad you think you got it? Somebody else got it worse than you

I don't have them down and ups and don't plan on comin' back down
Don't plan on leavin' her no time soon but I got too comfortable now
Wouldn't have no knowledge of wealth without no knowledge of self
And I'ma keep walkin' this road, my mind body and soul
And I know and I know and I know

Nobody told me that road would be easy, yeah
I don't believe I made it this far
My whole life, man, I've been working so hard

And I know nobody told me that the road would be easy
I can't believe I made it this far
My whole life, man, I've been working so hard and I know

I didn't know there'd be troubles along the way
Nobody told me nothin'
That would help me to ease my pain

And I've been walking this road for forever and a day
Now I'm in search for somethin' or someone to help me find my way
And now I know

Nobody told me that the road would be easy
I don't believe I made it this far
My whole life, man I've been working so hard

And I know nobody told me that the road would be easy
I can't believe I made it this far
My whole life, man, I've been working so hard

And I know nobody told me that road would be easy, yeah
I don't believe I made it this far
My whole life, man, I've been working so hard

And I know nobody told me that the road would be easy
I can't believe I made it this far
