I Can't Help It Lyrics

by The Roots

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it

Live with it, that's how I survive with it
Talk jive with it, you take a dive with it
Connive with it, depart and arrive with it
Harsh thrive, that's why it's part I with it

I did it, make rhymes in five minutes
Mind of a Dennis, crimes of a menace
Press rewind, see what you find in my image
Take you niggas back to the line of the scrimmage

Riq, you know we pull a freak with the flow
Talk's cheap that's why we speak with the dough
Ill technique show I'm sleek with the flow
It's cold outside, nigga, sleep with the snow

I tweek in the low tone, freak with the ozone
I can't help hiding my secrets theyre so known
I only do what I got to cause it's possible
And climbin' over whatever's known as an obstacle

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it

Ugh, I can't help it, maybe I'm selfish
Maybe the way I'm runnin' is becomin' a health risk
All I can see is smoke through tortoise shell
Gazelle 650's, I'm feelin' like I'm makin' a sales pitch

My head already so heavy, it's makin' the scales tip
I got my own pressure and got everyone else's
I'm rehabilitated, still feelin' rebellious
Candidate of heart failure, more pills then Elvis

In a layer cake, half-chocolate, half-velvet
I'm listenin' to some Howe Melvin
I got too many options, there's so many toxins
Yo, ain't no really tellin' what we killin' ourselves with

I lit a cigarette and inhaled it
I'm thinkin' of some rhymes more iller then a threatening ailment
I'm on some bomb threat in the mail shit
Because of all the things I dealt with, nigga, I can't help it

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it

I never said I'm ready to die, but I accept it
Never said I'm ready for war but I'm protected
I don't even know when it's comin' but I expect it
Lost all semblance of hope, so now I'm left with

Nervous conditions, addictions, in addition
To vixens that mixed in with the wrong crowd
My life is on a flight that's goin' down
My mother had an abortion for the wrong child

Well, the time I felt love that's gone now
Been replaced by purple rains and some storm clouds
Misery love misery
So why make friends, let's make some enemies

And now, I got a habit that wasn't meant for me
Now, I'm in a marriage that wasn't meant to be
One more reason to change identity
The cars, the crime, K's, penalties

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I, I can't help it, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I, I can't help it

I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I can't help it, I can't help it
I, I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it

I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I, I can't help it, I, I, I can't help it
I, I, I, I can't help it
