The Struggle

This “lyrics of the day” is dedicated to my dude PLuv. It comes to us via way of Andre 3000 on a collaboration song with his partner Big Boi (and Raekwon) entitled – Royal Flush.

( 2:39)
And I tried to enlighten but that night a learned a lesson
That the morals that you think you got go out the window
When all the other kids are fresh and they got new Nintendo
Wii’s
And yo’ child is down on her knees
Praying hard up to God for a Whopper with cheese

  1. Here is the rest of the verse….

    Unfortunate that if you come up fortunate
    The street considers you lame
    I thought the name of the game
    Was to have a better life
    I guess it ain’t what a shame
    I don’t slang, never slung
    But I’m one with the slum
    That has a name well fitting
    Plenty cheese getting
    No wonder why they called it the trap
    So watch your tail
    And I’m not kidding
    The rats and mice would give advice
    They say that you can paint and draw
    Get out of here
    Go show them that we’re more than slangin’ raw
    That’s when I broke into my big Rube impression
    And I tried to enlighten but that night a learned a lesson
    That the morals that you think you got go out the window
    When all the other kids are fresh and they got new Nintendo
    Wiis
    And yo’ child is down on her knees
    Praying hard up to God for a Whopper with cheese
    Do you b) Hit the street hard with a flare
    Or do you a) Go for school for heating and air
    Dare making an honest living
    But make a crooked killing
    Or do a bit of both until your holding on a million
    Brilliant
    You got one foot in and one foot out
    You put yo’ left foot back in and then you shake it all about
    You do the Hokey Pokey ’til you turn your life around
    That’s what it’s all about
    3000 out
