Hey, yo, yo
Yo, hey, yo, yo
Hey, yo
Hey, yo, yo

You don't know what you got until it's
They say you don't know what you got until it's gone
You don't know what you got until it's
They say you don't know what you got until it's gone

Hey, ya, ya, yo, yo, ya, ya, yo
It was the first sign on the day of my birth
I entered the earth blind
Vulnerable to everythin' I would first find
Condition of bein' niggaz having the worst mind

Becomin' weak like we scavengers of the worst kind
From havin' nothin' to plot and makin' the earth mine
Makin' the earth mine

That's kinda big aspirations for a nigga
That's just kinda got on his first grind
But it's aight 'cause I'm blowin' whole on my first shine
Kinda gas quicker than spaz ready to burst mine

And though it seems like obstacles come at the worst time
Goin' from being successful to commitin' the worst crimes
So quick like a bitch massagin' ya whole dick
And bust a nut, and it's over sabotagin' ya own shit

We always good when we get it and then abuse
Then regret it, 'cause as quick as we get it we fuckin' lose it
That's what my mother used to tell me

(You don't know what you got until it's)
See, they ain't knowin' though
(They say you don't know what you got until it's gone)
That's what my mother used to always tell me

(You don't know what you got until it's)
Hey yo, I peep that they ain't knowin' though
(They say you don't know what you got until it's gone)
That's what my mother used to always tell me

See in a flash they could take it from you like hocus pocus
So count your blessings and, baby, I hope you stay in focus
Wide awake like I'm drinkin' them Cappuccino Mochas
Takin' on more stress and get to becomin' smokers

Like the shit they setup just straight provoke us
And fall victim to the shit till it stifle and choke us
I promise you'll find the truth when you done diggin' it out
Stop the shiverin', nigga, I think I just figured it out

You see we thug physically and mentally soft
Kept lyin' to yourself so that your worth and your value is lost
Sometime the feelin' of the city is wrong
Why we appreciate 'em all now that Tupac and Biggie is gone?

Somehow I'm seein' it clear
I would have rather this value them just as much
When both them niggaz is here
Yeah, we always good when we get it and then abuse it
Then regret it 'cause as quick as we get it we fuckin' lose it, listen

(You don't know what you got until it's)
See, they ain't knowin' though
(They say you don't know what you got until it's gone)
That's what my mother used to always tell me

(You don't know what you got until it's)
Hey yo, I peep that they ain't knowin' though
(They say you don't know what you got until it's gone)
Yo that's what my mother used to always tell me

Extend your hand for the worried and bless 'em if they need you
Don't ever take life for granted and bite the hand that feeds you
Be cautious how you treat people and how the people feel you
Respect niggaz or else the Karma is coming to kill you

You got it good, baby, just get your shit together
Before you lose it and it's over and gone forever
Dress for the stormy weather, feel the songs
For everyone is personal like I was just writin' myself a letter

A lot of niggaz be wilin', callin' a name
With disrespect, cashin' and blightin', throwin' salt in the game
I'm sayin', I'm dealin' with logic, I hope you ain't thinkin' I'm rude
But stop ruin the greatest thing that's been given us food

Clothin' and shelter when it's cold we be staying warm
Imagine if they just took the music and rap was gone
We always good when we get it and then abuse it
I won't let it 'cause it's precious and I ain't ready to lose it, listen

(You don't know what you got until it's)
See, they ain't knowin' though
(They say you don't know what you got until it's gone)
That's what my mother used to always tell me

(You don't know what you got until it's)
Hey yo, I peep that they ain't knowin' though
(They say you don't know what you got until it's gone)
That's what my mother used to always tell me

(You don't know what you got until it's)
See, they ain't knowin' though
(They say you don't know what you got until it's gone)
That's what my mother used to always tell me

(You don't know what you got until it's)
Hey yo, I peep that they ain't knowin' though
(They say you don't know what you got until it's gone)
That's what my mother used to always tell me

You don't know what you got until it's
They say you don't know what you got until it's gone
You don't know what you got until it's gone
