Money means nothing
My people mean everything
Promise when I got little more money that I will never change
Plus still the same
I kept my feet on earth
And I kept my promise
I kept my people first
My friends and my family help make a man of me
When i was down at
Ya'll lent a helping hand to me
So I return in the favour
I passing forward
Adversity dont run away from it run towards it
Face it and brace it
I promise that you could make it
Time spent with your family you should keep that secret
Is more worth then any amount of money?
So i never let the money snatch that from me
People get money and they start actin funny
Its the money that making they world you see
but see if i get some then we all gettin somthin
Cuz money aint the world to me
I do it for the people the people the people
Cuz money aint the world to me
The people the people the people
Cuz money aint the world to me
Daddy was a garbage man
Momma worked real hard
Me im a common man
And the pi on the lord
Smart smith admit it
You didnt have a million dollars
Only thing you said to me was dont kill you makes you stronger
humble beginning
makes a sweeter endin
Look at Oprah Winfrey, Tupac, and John Lennon
In rolls sit goes
What your next move
Now you have a good president what you gone do
Be a better man
Let a freiend a hand
Grow spiritedly
Help out your community
Is the love that mama was cooking
That making taste good
Is the people not the money
That makes the neighbourhood
People get money and they start actin funny
Its the money that making they world you see
but see if i get some then we all gettin somthin
Cuz money aint the world to me
I do it for the people the people the people
Cuz money aint the world to me
The people the people the people
Cuz money aint the world to me
You see I do it for the love
Sometimes i do it just because
But for some reason i cant explain
I didnt do for the bucks
See Nappy Roots is a movement
That hovers a class above
the average and the obvious
Sell the conscious like a lot of this
We struggle from time to time
Did the opposite of a lot of us
But a hard word pays off
Im leaving proof and promise in this
Educate yourself so when you finally see some dollars and cents
You say you want but proof that soon you gonna make it
But make it to your grandchildren's kids
because they are the future
We are the one that are damaging it
Abuse is an opportunity with revolution, and contaminates
Dont make any damn sense
His movie doesnt have a sequel
If you dont do for you and your kids
then do it for the rest of the people
People get money and they start actin funny
Its the money that making they world you see
but see if i get some then we all gettn somthin
Cuz money aint the world to me
I do it for the people the people the people
Cuz money aint the world to me
The people the people the people
Cuz money aint the world to me
