Welcome to Nellyville, where all newborns get a half a meal
(Oh)
Sons, get the Tan Deville, soon as they can reach the wheel
And daughters, get diamonds the size of their age, ya
(Ooo)
One year get one carat, two years get two carats
Three years get three carats, so on into marriage
Nobody livin' average, everybody jang a lang
Nobody livin' savage, e'rybody got change
Even the paperboy deliver out the back of a Range
It's not a game, it's a beautiful thing
Imagine blocks and blocks of no Cocaine, blocks with no gunplay
Ain't nobody shot, so ain't no news that day
(Whoo!)
Ain't nobody snitchin', they refuse to say
Every month we take a vote on what the weather should be
And if we vote it rains, know how wet we want it to be
And if we vote it snow, know how deep we want it to get
But the sun gonna shine ninety nine percent, in Nellyville
(Yeah)

There's no way, there's no way, way, way
(Uh)
I, I, I could explain
(I could explain, I could explain)
(I explained the other morning)
The way I feel right now
There's no way, there's no way way
(Whoo, whoo)
I, I, I could explain
(I could explain, I could explain)
The way I feel about livin' in Nellyville

I got that good at e'ry gas station, pull on up
Give me a half a ounce of that shit, fill it up
We got straws for the bottles, outlaw the cups
And we gonna make it happen, ain't no need for no luck
Ain't no lotteries, no pick threes or pick two's
Keep the money in your family, gamble amongst your crew
'Cause the dice goin' do what the dice goin' do
And if you take a life, you goin' lose yours too
Ain't no trials, it's automatic, you drop 'em right where it happen
You do unto others if you don't want it don't do the cappin'
Think that's cool?
Forty acres and a mule, fuck that!
Nellyville, forty acres and a pool
(Whoo)
Six bedrooms, full bath with a jacuzz'
(Uh)
Six car garage, pavement smooth
Both front and back deck enough room to land a jet
And you ain't reached the city, that's just the projects
(Yeah)

There's no way, there's no way, way, way
(Uh)
I, I, I could explain
(Uh)
(I could explain, I could explain)
The way I feel right now
There's no way, there's no way that I
(Whoo, whoo)
That I, I could explain
(Check it, check it, yeah)
The way I feel about livin' in Nellyville
(Everybody, uh, now everybody say)

Well I want to go, please let me go
(Whoo)
I need to go down to Nellyville
I need to see, what I can see
Won't you and me go to Nellyville?
I want to go so bad
I just want to go right now, uh
Won't you please take me away?
I just know I gotta be there

No unexpectancy, like teenage pregnancy
And physical mental attraction your only ecstasy
Your own destiny, create your own recipe
If you ain't livin' accord'ly dirty then you stressin' me
("And who are you?")
Who me?
I'm the Mayor
(Uh)
And any problems you got, I live up ther'
("Where's that?")
The house on the hill, welcome mat of fur
When you pass by that thang, be polite and don't stir
(Yeah)

There's no way, there's no way, way
(Whoo)
I, I, I could explain, yeah
The way I feel right now
There's no way, there's no way that, that
(Whoo, whoo)
I, I could explain, yeah
(That I)
The way I feel about livin' in Nellyville

Yeah
There's no, there's no, way, way, yeah
(Whoo)
(Way, way)
There's no, there's no, way, way, yeah
(Whoo)
(Way, way)
There's no, there's no, way, way, yeah
(Whoo)
(Way, way)
There's no, there's no, way, way
(Whoo)
(Way, way)
