Gotta do what I gotta do
Do what I gotta do
'Cause cash rules everything around me

If you take a look around
Take a look at was goin' down
If you can see what I see, baby
And why act the way I do

'Cause you can't understand
And you don't really know a man
Until you've been where I've been
Loose the things I've lost
But can you change the way that you look at me

All that you can say to me
The things I just can say no more
I'm not the same guy that I used to be
We don't even talk no more

Don't I get up everyday?
Don't I bring home all my pay?
Don't I do whatever it takes?
If I could just get my baby out tha ghetto

Gotta do what I gotta do
Move when it's time to move
See who I gotta see
'Cause cash rules everything around me

Do what I gotta do
Be who I gotta be
But it's not enough for you
'Cause we can live without enough money

She is afraid to get involved
She ain't willin' to fall in love
It's such a risk to take and a big mistake
By the way I make my livin'

But I let you know from the go
That's the way it is and that's the way it goes
It's the only life I know
But you can't do nothing to change that, baby

All that you can say to me
The things I just can say no more
I'm not the same guy that I used to be
We don't even talk no more

Don't I get up everyday
Don't I bring home all my pay
Don't I do whatever it takes
If I could just get my baby out tha ghetto

Gotta do what I gotta do
Move when it's time to move
See who I gotta see
'Cause cash rules everything around me

Do what I gotta do
Be who I gotta be
But it's not enough for you
'Cause we can live without enough money

Gotta do what I gotta do
Move when it's time to move
See who I gotta see
'Cause cash rules everything around me

Do what I gotta do
Be who I gotta be
But it's not enough for you
'Cause we can live without enough money

Just try and understand me
Look at it from my point of view
Nothin' in this world is free
So I do what I gotta do

Didn't I give you, the big cars 'n the big rimes
I kept you, less then
The finer things, baby what you think
It was coming from stop actin' dumb

I knew you knew, but you played it off
I play it too, like I had it all
I was your man gave you everything
So don't act like you don't understand

Gotta do what I gotta do
Move when it's time to move
See who I gotta see
'Cause cash rules everything around me

Do what I gotta do
Be who I gotta be
But it's not enough for you
'Cause we can live without enough money
