lyrics

since when jeans cost 50 for a good pair?
i don't even make that much on a good year
i'm talkin bout fashion, as if i care
so picky when it come to shit that i wear
when i'm in here the debit is in air
spending this much is a privilege i swear
even the eyewear john var some'n, not even the nice pair
but i spent the whole check though
can't pay the rent, but they fresh though
back and forth in my head like yes / no
spend to the last i should try to let go
can't really get those, but they fresh though

but i spent the whole check though
can't pay the rent, but they fresh though
spend to the last i should try to let go
can't really get those, but they fresh though

mommy say she used to have to make her own clothes
now she don't have to, she make her own dough
got her own home, all on her own
somethin to be proud of, though she don't know
gotta let 'em go, or your kids don't grow
same way with the bad habits and the hormones
won't understand it until you're more grown
then you find out you were really more wrong
than you ever thought,
she would say that and i was Sajak
staring at the wheel on a new maybach
pretty good in school but i had to take rap
had to face facts i was john henry, had to lay tracks
if i'm gon do it, better do it way fast
cuz ain't no tellin how long it may last
if you not careful the moment may pass
and i swear to y'all as every day pass i try to spend less
cuz i gotta pay back that girl for her past,
but they got the brand new shit in the back

and i try to say no, but the answer is yes though
gotta cop those 'cause they fresh though
yea they fresh though, they fresh though
can't really get those, but they fresh though

but i spent the whole check though
can't pay the rent, but they fresh though
back and forth in my head like, yes / no
can't really get those, but they fresh though

when i'm in here the debit is in air
spendin this much is a privilege i swear
but they would tell me
that i need to sit back and enjoy what i have
appropriately

growin up, daddy had no shoes for his toes
now he got 37 bottles of cologne
sittin next to a couple bottles of patron
got more trees in the back yard alone
that you can hear the breeze, when it comes when it goes
money's like that yo, it comes then it goes
life's like that yo, it comes then it goes
chasin the sun when it comes, but it goes
try to get the money instead of the sunshine man,
life's kinda funny like that sometimes
soon as the check come there the check go
shouldn't really cop those, but they fresh though

but i spent the whole check though
can't pay the rent, but they fresh though
back and forth in my head like, yes / no
can't really get those, but they fresh though

but i spent the whole check though
can't pay the rent, but they fresh though
spend to the last i should try to let go
can't really get those, but they fresh though
