Fresh out of school cause I was a high school grad
If you ask me the whole thing needs a douche
‘Cause we don’t want to drug push
Till I stopped fillin’ out my W-2
Now senators are gettin’ high
So now you got a pep talk
I’m never givin’ love again
Tell the politicians, the hustlers, live and let live (yeah)
What about diapers, bottles, and similac
‘Cause my son doesn’t take no for an answer
Pass it to the man at AT&T
Clock like a slave, that’s what be happenin’
Or should I just wait for help from Bush
And your plan against the ghetto backfired
‘Cause I couldn’t follow the plan of the presidency
But that’s not likely so here’s my application
For decent shelter and clothes on my back?
Gots to get a job ’cause I was a high school dad
Do I gotta go sell me a whole lotta crack

But blacks are too fuckin’ broke to be republican
So now you put the feds against me
But welcome to McDonald’s can I take your order please
Always knew that I would clock G’s
Gotta sell ya food that might give you cancer
Tell the politicians, the hustlers, live and let live (yeah)
To the corner house bitches
But a bird in the hand is worth more than the bush
Now I pay taxes that you never give me back
‘Cause when I was in school I got the A-E-E
But whitey says there’s no room for the African
Or Jesse Jackson, and operation Push
Now I remember I used to be cool
So I got me a bird, better known as a kilo
A masengel what the hell cracker sell in the neighborhood
But there’s no S-E for this youngsta
Miss porker, little Joe or Todd Bridges
Wish I got paid like I was rappin’ to the nation
I didn’t have no money so now I have to punch the
Or anybody that he know
Now everybody know I went from po’ to a nigga that got dough
But sorry, this is our only room to walk
