20 Dollars Lyrics

by Angie Stone

Said it's a sho' fire testimony
Check it, whoa
Whoa, rap on the do'

Whatcha know about being poor?
Whatcha know about borrowin'
From the neighbor next door?
Whatcha know about bummin' rides?
Whatcha know about havin' to swallow your pride?

(What do you do when you're through?)
When you're always helpin' people and
(Nobody's there for you)
Come on now
(What can I do or say?)
When you constantly standing in my face talkin' about

Can you loan me 20 dollars?
Till I get my check next week
Said I only got 20 dollars
And me and my baby got to eat

Can you loan me 20 dollars?
Till I get my check next week
Said I only got 20 dollars
And me and my baby got to eat

Now I'm supposed to take from the child, oh Lord
Make it harder on me just to make it worth your while
Now honey, I don't think so
'Cuz you ain't paid me back the 10-spot
From 3 weeks ago, uh ho ho, no

(What do you do when you're through?)
When you're always helpin' people and
(Nobody's there for you)
Tell me
(What can I do or say?)
When you're constantly starin' in my face talkin' about

Can you loan me 20 dollars?
Till I get my check next week
Said I only got 20 dollars
And me and my baby got to eat

Can you loan me 20 dollars?
Till I get my check next week
Said I only got 20 dollars
And me and my baby got to eat

Tell me
(What have you done for me?)
Besides bein' too busy, busy, busy
(Stressin' me constantly)
Oh, yeah, now I, now I, now I
(I can see where your head is at)
Aha, see I only got 20 dollars
And you still want half of that, oh yeah

Can you loan me 20 dollars?
Till I get my check next week
Said I only got 20 dollars
And me and my baby got to eat

Can you loan me 20 dollars
Till I get my check next week?
(What check you gon' get next week?)
Said I only got 20 dollars
And me and my baby got to eat
(I don't remember you havin' a job lately)

Can you loan me 20 dollars?
Till I get my check next week
(Gerald told me the other day, you see)
Said I only got 20 dollars
(You borrowed 10 from him)
And me and my baby got to eat
(And 2 from Sue and I said, "I ain't got no money")

Can you loan me 20 dollars?
(I work too hard for mine)
Till I get my check next week
(Baby)
Said I only got 20 dollars
(I suggest you get it together)
And me and my baby got to eat
