My Life Lyrics

[Chorus]
I've got something to tell you
I believe you, I believe you
I've got something to tell you
I believe you really ought to know

[Hook]
This is my life [X4]
(Think about it echoeing in background)

[Verse 1 - 1Ton]
It started when my pops moved away from Africa
When to college in America, and met my mom in Canada
Interracial couple, no one would date 'em double
That's about the time my momma's stomach grew a bubble
I was still inside, I wasn't black, I wasn't white
But to the world I was still a nigga, just a little light
No time for ignorance, I just gotta live my life
Treat everybody with respect and hope that they can get it right
'Cause when I was a youth, my parents moved to California
Said that I would understand it more when I became older
The south was segregated, the East was way behind
It's not the color of your skin, but what's inside your mind
The motto that I kept in every house a nigga slept
On every block that I roamed, on every spot I called home
I went to Jr. High with all the Asians and the Blacks
Learned to give respect and expect to get it back
Every time I meet a different race I try to learn somethin'
In the Barrio, eat burritos like it's nothin'
Keep an open mind, got a lot left to do
Learned to surf from a nigga, learned to rap from a Jew
Gotta spread knowledge every time I'm on stage
This is the book of life, every day's another page
So when my time is up and I fall over dead
I hope I was successful like im gettin in your head.--~~~~PILLZBARRY

[Hook]
This is my life [X4]
(Think about it echoeing in background)

[Chorus]
I've got something to tell you
I believe you, I believe you
I've got something to tell you
I believe you really ought to know

[Verse 2 - Underrated]
They wanna keep us divided so that we're easy to control
Color this, color that, there ain't no color in my soul
I don't separate, nope, I definitely don't discriminate
Fuck David Koresh, and fuck the KKK
'Cause my parents were hippies, teach me peace and love
Taught me all people were equal, don't be mean to no one
So I took the information, and when I watched when I was young
I lot of kids in my classes acted racist and dumb
Only a handful of black kids that went to my school
I overheard them being called the n-word by the cool
And when my back's turned, I'm a money hungry Jew
I didn't blame 'em, they just had an ignorant point of view
I'm lucky I got white friends, Puerto Ricans, and Indians
And do business on a mission with a black dude and Mexican
No questions; treat each other like a family is how we livin'
So when I rap, understand I wanna reach the children
We gotta open up our mind like Cheech & Chong
In a world full of Jimmy the Greek's and Rush Limbaugh's
They're tellin' lies and they love to generalize
I believe don't believe in nothin' unless you've seen it with your own eyes

[Hook]
This is my life [X8]
(Think about it echoeing in background)

[Chorus X2]
I've got something to tell you
I believe you, I believe you
I've got something to tell you
I believe you really ought to know
