Let's get it cracking!
Uh, c'mon!

[Chorus: Sample from William Bell's "I Forgot To Be
Your Lover" (Rakim)]
I've been working for youuu (it's for my ladies!) -
doin' aaall I can. (uh-huh, uh-huh!) (all I can...)
All the tiiime! (all the time...) (c'mon, yeah!)
I've been working for youuu (it's for my hustlers) -

aaall I can. (all I can...)
All the tiiime! (all the time...)
I've been working for youuu (yo, TNT turn the mic' up!)
doin' aaall I can, (all I can...)
All the tiiime! (all the time...) (uhh, listen!)

[Verse 1:]
Ayo! What's good, boo? I know I've got explainin' to do
(word up!)
I've got some problems. - But none of them pertainin'
to you! (uh-uh, uh-uh!)
It's mostly money, bills, warrants that's just namin' a
few.
I ain't complainin'! - Just let me win the game and I'm
through.
I get my shit together. - Stop living off the corner!
Get the majority of my priorities in order. (aiigh!)
And in my goal is find a way to get you out the slums,
So we can roll through the neighborhood without the
guns. (uhh!)
And the grind? - My days is limited. - Sinnin' and
crime,
Time is money but you wonder how I'm spendin' my time.
(c'mon, man!)
Am I really stackin' paper or I'm bendin' a dime?
That's propaganda! (propaganda!) - Try not to let that
enter your mind! (aiight!)
Yo hon', you listening? - Cause when it come to
flipping ones
And getting bundles in the jungle I've got tunnel
vision.
Just stay focused (ohh!) there's alota road
I bridge the gap to get a lot of dough (ohh!), just
help me with this pot of gold. (uh-huh!)
Cause you was there when the Feds hit me
We took our vows in the penals, so you could do my bid
with me. (word up!)
Private - visits to jail you had a kid with me
Now it's time (uh!) to get the crib with me, (uh!) live
with me. - C'mon!

[Chorus: Sample from William Bell's: "I Forgot To Be
Your Lover" (Rakim)]
I've been working for youuu - doin' aaall I can. (all I
can...)
All the tiiime! (all the time...)
I've been working for youuu - doin' aaall I can. (all I
can...)
All the tiiime! (all the time...)
I've been working for youuu - doin' aaall I can. (all I
can...)
All the tiiime! (all the time...)
I've been working for youuu (uh-huh, uh-huh, uhh!) -
doin' aaall I can, (all I can...)
All the tiiime! (all the time...)

[Verse 2:]
If you don't hear from me, call the priest and don't
think papi cheatin' (uh-uh!)
If I ain't there something happened to me, the block is
heated. (pow, pow, pow!)
Just go in the ceilings and the boxes and the closets
keep it
I hid the yearly profits (uh!) we get in the Sealy
posturepedic. (uh!)
I got to leave it drugs squeezing guns and the ghetto
Last thing I wanna do is leave you a young widow!
(aiight!)
But the scent of papi's easy Miyagi still on the pillow
(sssh!)
So I'm a find a way to survive and stay alive.
Don't let them Lexus scare you! (uh!) - Just let it
just prepare you (uh!)
I spraying nine's some thorough plus I'm extra careful.
Got something good waitin' for me. (word up!) - You
know I'll be there, boo. (uhh!)
Incredible head to toe plus the sex is rare, too.
Got you the cranberry Benz you say yeah I'm happy.
(sssh!)
But you don't want nothing if you can't have me!
(aiight!)
So I'm a - switch the gig when I get rich from this
Then go legit and handle businesses. (uh!) - Kiss the
kids! (aight, c'mon!)

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
I ball for you, score for you, mall for you!
I say: "I'm sorry for the times I was wrong for you."
Get into your beef for you plus I be loyal (word up!)
I go gutter free for you, (uh!) even flush a key for
you. (uh!)
Right now - I'm ready to change my lifestyle
Pipe down for you, (uh-huh, uh-huh!) lay the pipe down
for you (uh-huh, uh-huh!)
Even call free for you all week for you. (uh-huh, uh-
huh, uh!)
Lay off the heat for you, (uh!) stay off the street for
you! (uh, yeah!)
I'll take you out for lunch anything you want (uh!)
Without the front for you. (uh-huh!) - Put out the
blunt for you! (uh!)
Make sure you safe and sound stay around for you (word
up!)
You gonna love the way your man lay it down for you.
(uh!)

[Outro: William Bell sample from "I Forgot To Be Your
Lover"]
Ayo!
Hey, ma'!
Everything is... (for youuu!)
Uh-huh, uh!
You got to know it!
Yeah!
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh!

Straight up!
For all my ladies...
Just waiting for their hustlers to come home.
You gotta know it!
All my husters, there's a lady at home who's waiting

Five barrels...
