Bottles & Cans Lyrics

by Angie Stone

Everybody wants some type of success in life
Like every woman wants to one day be a wife
Your success is measured, but to a degree
'Cuz all the money in the world, dont add up to you and me

Id rather be pickin up bottles and cans
If you cant be my man
Id rather be homeless in the streets
With no food to eat

Id rather be facing twenty to life
If I cant be your wife
Now I know that it seems like Im crazy for you
Thats what love can do

Look at what you started, theres no way this can end
Because I've falling in love, but how deep did I fall in
If anything should ever stand in our way
I wouldn't wait till tomorrow, but Id throw it away today

Id rather be pickin up bottles and cans
If you cant be my man
Id rather be homeless in the streets
With no food to eat

Id rather be facing twenty to life
If I cant be your wife
Now I know that it seems like Im crazy for you
Thats what love can do

Id rather be pickin' up bottles and cans
Pickin' up cans baby, oh yeah yeah
Id rather be homeless in the streets
With no food to eat

Id rather be facing twenty to life
Now I know that it seems like Im crazy for you
Thats what love can do

It just ain't money
(Without)
There is no home
(Without you)
Its no crime, baby
(Without)
Who is everyone
(Without you)

Its no career
(Without)
Its not sincere
(Without you)
These diamonds dont shine
(Without)
Whoa
(Thats what love can do)
Thats what love can do

Id rather be pickin up bottles and cans
If you cant be my man
Id rather be homeless in the streets
With no food to eat

Id rather be facing twenty to life
Now I know that it seems like Im crazy for you
Thats what love can do

Id rather be pickin up bottles and cans
If you cant be my man
Id rather be homeless in the streets
With no food to eat
Id rather be facing twenty to life
