Hey, hey, hey what's happenin' e'erybody ?
I hope they get my good side
You know I gotta look good when I walk out the house
You know I know the camera's following
I know they taking pictures, right Drama? Hey

Ay man, you watch it I live it, you dig that?
Y'all sit back relax get some popcorn, man
I'm gonna make it a good show, you dig that?
This gonna make a hell of a movie, huh?

My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it, live it
I walk, they follow, ay
I talk, they holla, ay
Just here for your amusement

My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it, live it
You waitin' for me to lose it
I guess I'm just here for your amusement

The price of fame I think I paid, want my change I done gave
E'erything in my possession for my seconds on the stage
For my name up in lights and multi-million record sales
I done gave up my life, can't get a moment to myself

When alone I ask myself, is it worth it? I ain't perfect
Neither is anybody else, but I think my kids deserve
To be with Daddy out in public without all the interruptions
When the lies and gossip's published I'm the topic of discussion

And I stay in trouble just to show these suckers I ain't lost it
And I'd do it all again that's the funny thing about it
I ain't playing, boy I'm 'bout it, will I change? Boy I doubt it
I done been a lot of things, I ain't never been a coward

See the paparazzi crowded all around me now
Same niggas who was dissin' want a pound like I'm senile
Showered with support from my adoring fans
They hear T.I.'s arrested they're like, here we go again

My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it, live it
I walk, they follow, ay
I talk, they holla, ay
Just here for your amusement

My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it, live it
You waitin' for me to lose it
I guess I'm just here for your amusement

You've seen it all before, guys know how the story goes
It's like 2Pac never died, sit back, enjoy the show
You see the shit that scares you senseless, I done lived through it
Knew the risks and the consequences and I still do it

And then I'm so fresh, them niggas mildew it
Not just a actor by profession, pimp, I live movies
That's why they whisper when they see me, point and stare at me
'Cause they just wanna live through me vicariously

Fashion weekend, Paris week, party like a rockstar
Get blown by a top model 'til she catch lockjaw
Got the dough you get a year, stashed in my sock drawer
Showed you the troubles and the struggles of an outlaw

Top dog would not fall, I am not y'all
Couple pages out the calendar and I'm out y'all
Kid listen, pay attention, you don't wanna be me
It's safer to watch it on T.V.

My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it, live it
I walk, they follow, ay
I talk, they holla, ay
Just here for your amusement

My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it, live it
You waitin' for me to lose it
I guess I'm just here for your amusement

See I don't think it would even matter to me
Woking a nine to five would it be better
I mean be honest, would you care to gossip about me
Not likely, I guess that's just the way that it goes, the way that it goes

'Cause I know, see I can be somewhere out keeping it cool
And get told, almost anything instead of the truth
Y'all know more than I do, it's breaking news to me too
Easy killer y'all know that ain't how I move, ooh

He said and she said, what, I did what, with they, who
No not me I said, not me, she gave me no head, ooh
Won't get me again, hey, I pleaded the fifth, hey
I know better than to ever talk during the film

In and flashing lights can blind your eyesight
To when you can't see what's wrong from right
Well shorty 'til you walk a mile in my shoes
And understand this is who I am

Usher I completely concur
Life can be such a blur, obviously we prefer
Our privacy but instead we endure
Yes sir, don't expect nothin' less of me
'Cause this goin' probably be this way until the death of me

But for the hustle and the lady on my arm now
Plus all my kids and my mom's I'm a calm down
And yo, we doin' just fine, and the time's just flyin'
Live one headline at a time

My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it, live it
I walk, they follow, ay
I talk, they holla, ay
Just here for your amusement

My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it, live it
You waitin' for me to lose it
I guess I'm just here for your amusement
