Ooh, ooh, ooh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh, ooh, yeah

It's a pity that you're so dirty
Worthy of some Southern Hospital
See we them Northern boys with nose and hows
NYC livin' ain't nothin' like it
See how me and my peeps fit, we jigsaw

Sometimes I play big saw to cut the deal
And we keepin' them bills paid
With meals in the mouths of many
A noble job at Feni, money ain't everything
But everything makes me want it

But won't dishonor my name so the claim throwers
Act like game on the dice on the mic device
Stay above middle class for life
Not an easy task but I've grown to love it

Dub it to tape, why don't you whip a grin
While I speak to my mens about the world problems
And girl problems with no immediate way to solve 'em?
But I'm on hits

I make the best of the life I be with it
Making the most of the moment among the livin'
And it feels good being the man that I want to be

Do what I can 'cause I refuse to see
The best of luxury, God's been good to me
Now I'm asking am I worthy of you, of you
Am I worthy of you

Pull them quarters down, I got some things
On these nine ounces to vamp
Me on a mission, y'all dug fresh dirt out the ground
Lookin' for the treasures in life
A bambino picket fence around the residence
I wore these shackles here for thirteen years

But the only real slaves is the ones we record on
We off all checks and God's blessin'
Tryin' to own a thousand island like we salad dressin'
Patience for the main course
Don't have me in position to remain boss
'Cause the man next to the man above the exec

Don't give a damn if I papered yet
Sometimes it make me wanna go make a bet
I did away with knock em' and release some stress
By any means, these petty greens will only get me stuck in a box
Doin' a dick shot in Oz, jerkin' off in the J
But anyway I keep my head on

I make the best of the life I be with it
Making the most of the moment among the livin'
And it feels good being the man that I want to be

Do what I can 'cause I refuse to see
The best of luxury, God's been good to me
Now I'm asking am I worthy of you, of you
Am I worthy of you

I know people who tippy toe
Through they own stompin' ground
Master not makin' a sound to stay safe
From the local star renaissance
And the response is usually the same

Wishin' like it used to be
Nothin' in that life is new to me
We roll like eyes on a ghetto girl
Brushin' off some no-man cause she's his ghetto pearl
We into livin' beyond not livin' fads

Me and my comrades became dads young
Try to have fun amongst responsibility
Like fillin' these accounts full
Got caught up at a party in Bull's

Sometimes gotta have the nerve to say some rhymes
Because some minds take offense
Try to make ya life tense but we still here
Still gainin' the love, still standin' above most

I make the best of the life I be with it
Making the most of the moment among the livin'
And it feels good being the man that I want to be

Do what I can 'cause I refuse to see
The best of luxury, God's been good to me
Now I'm asking am I worthy of you, of you
Am I worthy of you

I make the best of the life I be with it
Making the most of the moment among the livin'
And it feels good being the man that I want to be

Do what I can 'cause I refuse to see
The best of luxury, God's been good to me
Now I'm asking am I worthy of you, of you
Am I worthy of you
