That's right
Reality check
You know, what I mean?
Street lights and [incomprehensible]
Scorpion, yeah

When I was young
I use to dream of bein' rich
Have a lot of houses and cars
Couldn't know which one was which
And finding me a chick and getting hitched
Livin' the fairy tale life perfect without a ditch
You think that this would bring me happiness
If at the end of every rainbow
There was a treasure chest
Sometimes having more is really less
Take a look inside yourself
You'll realize you're really blessed
No matter how you're sad and blue
There's always someone who has it worse than you
Sometimes you gotta pay your dues
So don't worry just push on through

Keep'n it real
Gotta gig up all my peoples who'll be working on the future
Though they know they gotta struggle
Keep'n it real
To all my homies working on the nine to five
And doing right to keep themselves up out of trouble
Keep'n it real
Although sometimes I know it seems impossible
There ain't no need in drowning in your sorrows
Keep'n it real
If things are as bad as they can be
You could be sure there'll be a brighter tomorrow

I never got to have myself the house, the mansion, and the Benz
I'm not the kind of brother who be makin' mad ends
I got myself a girl but we be kickin' it as friends
Is not enough for me now that depends
Again, not everything you want is everything you really need
The standard of society is motivated by greed
Are you prepared to follow?
Tell me, you prepared to lead
So persevere and you'll succeed

Keep'n it real
Gotta gig up all my peoples who'll be working on the future
Though they know they gotta struggle
Keep'n it real
To all my homies working on the nine to five
And doing right to keep themselves up out of trouble
Keep'n it real
Although sometimes I know it seems impossible
There ain't no need in drowning in your sorrows
Keep'n it real
If things are as bad as they can be
You could be sure there'll be a brighter tomorrow

All the harsh realities
Appears to come in two's and three's
Don't worry
'Cuz there'll be a better day
One thing I can promise you
Just keep on keeping on
I swear to you
There's gonna be a brighter day

Back in the days
I used to dream of bein' rich
Have alot of houses and cars
Couldn't know which one was which
And finding me a chick and getting hitched
Livin' the fairy tale life perfect without a ditch
You think that this would bring me happiness
If at the end of every rainbow there was a treasure chest
Sometimes having more is really less
So take a look inside yourself
You'll realize you're really blessed
No matter how you're sad and blue
There's always someone who has it worse than you
Sometimes you gotta pay your dues
So don't worry just push on through

Keep'n it real
Gotta gig up all my peoples who'll be working on the future
Though they know they gotta struggle
Keep'n it real
To all my peoples working on the nine to five
And doing right to keep themselves up out of trouble
Keep'n it real
Although sometimes I know it seems impossible
There ain't no need in drowning in your sorrows
Keep'n it real
If things are as bad as they can be
You could be sure there'll be a brighter tomorrow

That's right, see me, yeah
Give thanks for, ya know
And when you think that it's bad
There's always somebody that's worse
Know, what I'm sayin'?
Good job listenin' to me
