Got you where I want you motherfucker
I got five up on your dime
And if you wanna peep on something
Peep what I got stuck between your eyes

And since I don't believe a word you say
Save it for another, baby brother
Swallow time to pay

Up on the ladder they sing
How high?
Does a brother have to climb
To touch the light

But wait 'til I get done with you
If you tell me
"Don't get mixed up with the Devil"
That's exactly what I'm gonna do

Caught you while you waited
For your boy to come and fix you up again
Come a little closer, baby
I only wanna try to be your friend

Since I ain't got nothing left to lose
Got you where I want you, motherfucker
Don't you try to move

Up on the ladder they sing
How high?
Does a brother have to climb
To touch the light

Won't you take me up there with you?
You said you would
No one ever could shake
That ladder, baby like I could

So I wait
And I wait
And I wait
And I wait

Up on the ladder they sing
How high?
Does a brother have to climb
To touch the light

Won't you take me up there with you?
You said you would
No one ever could shake
That ladder, baby like I could
Like I could, like I could
