Truth About Me Lyrics

by Petey Pablo

Ayo 'cuz when y'all tellin' folk, about my life
I don't want y'all to add nothing
I don't want y'all to take nothing away
I want y'all to play that thang
Just like this here, ya heard me, come on

Since the tender age, I been running wild
I seen all those things, you don't show to a child
It wasn't the love I was missing
My folks cared for me, I had a stubborn ass attitude
And y'all couldn't talk to me

I tried often the straight and narrow
But every time I would stumble and fall
Fell so hard one time
I fucked around and stayed down
I don't wanna try no more

I was gettin' a little older
Those mistakes were a part of my life
And my only regret
Is that I'll only get one chance
To get it right

And I wanna tell the world, the truth about me
And I wanna tell the world, the truth about me
Listen to the song

I've caused more unnecessary stress
To my mama than the world allow
Old sister of mine
I had once upon a time
We ain't spoke in a while

Life's been hard on me, but I found a way
To keep standing it and holding on, holding on
Pressin' on, good God Almighty
Standing in jail someday, I'll break the monotony
'Cause Petey wasn't doing that well

And I can behold a way
That the world christened me
If anybody give a damn to know
What really went on in my life
I wrote a song

And I wanna tell the world, the truth about me
And I wanna tell the world, the truth about me

{It is now gallow time, all inmates are asked
To get on your assigned bunks
And remain there until count time is made, count time
Olden, Williams, Monroe
Durant, Pablo, Pablo}

Man I was just one of the ones
That always wounded up in the midst of something
Stayed in trouble if I won't fuckin' up
I love, to bring the pain
Growing up in Greenville

North Carolina outside of Rocky Mount
I'm a be on the winning side
When this whole life decide to give me just a little money
You can sell it bootleg just as long as you can get it
Whatever, just understand me

And I wanna tell the world the truth about me
And I wanna tell the world the truth about me

And I hadn't changed to stand before you
And tell you about the things in my life
Yeah, yeah, yeah
