Gotta keep my head above water
Gotta stay head-strong, keep rolling on
No point getting caught in the hype is long
Like I don't know right from wrong

So I gotta be real, nothing to prove
I'm still big in the hood, I feel so in control
I'm chill, no one ain't knocking off dill
So I stay top on the bill

I'm the main event, the headliner
Went from jungle DJ to rhymer
Never thought I would be the big timer
But I still par it like, yo, it's a minor

'Cause I still rep my ends, still check my friends
Can I keep it up? I guess, it all depends
If I can keep my mind right, don't get tempted
By the limelight, I think I'll be alright

Temptation leads you like your naughty mate
The one that used to get you in bother
The one you can never bring yourself to hate

Can't avoid the temptation
But I know, I gotta change my ways
And keep my nose clean, gotta fix up
Take a look at my life 'cause I ain't sixteen

And I ain't no boy, ain't no kid
The world ain't flat and the picture's big
Certain things that I gotta get rid
And a whole lot more that I gotta get with

So I gotta stay and roam on my own
Gotta move on, I can't stay at home
'Cause I know what's there is all the same
Crack, cocaine and ghetto fame

Cold hard cash and a bit of a name
And I've see it all, so I need a change
Lost too many brethrens to the game
And you could say temptation's to blame

Temptation leads you like your naughty mate
The one that used to get you in bother
The one you can never bring yourself to hate
Temptation leads you like your naughty friends

We used to be tight, me and my naughty friends
Caused pure madness in the ends, I mean day and night
We robbed, we stole, we loved to fight
Smoking, drinking, joyriding, drugs, thugs, not law-abiding

Reckless youngsters, no direction, no sign of correction
But then I switched it up, changed my ways
Got in the area like, "Oh my days"
But not my naughty friends, they're not fazed
Can't believe that this music pays

See no reason why we can't do
All the things that we've always done
Still in my heart I know that's just wrong
But it's hard to fight the temptation, son

Temptation leads you like your naughty mate
The one that used to get you in bother
The one you can never bring yourself to hate
Temptation leads you like your naughty friends
