lyrics

(Verse1)
Make money, take money
Stake money, rape money
Fake money, ache
Don’t want it but I need it money
Old money new money
Sold money, fold money
Bold money, rolled
Green but all I got is blue money
Walk money, talk money
Thought we bought love it with it we would be above it real funny,
Simple man plan money, shady man scan money
In the eye of every by stander like he brand money
Living large, you in charge, now who I am to check ya
Pivot on my heel when you say only got a cheque for ya
Sign dotted line, would I break my neck for ya
Put it on the line, and I might just get respect for ya
Pray your kin, don’t cash in when you check out
Better play your sin, only win when you lash out
Money ain’t a thing but when Benjamin’s the way out
Victory to history, hold the Klan & hold the clout

(Chorus)
When I put my hand out,
I ain’t asking for a dolla or hand out,
Check yourself
When I put my hand out,
I ain’t asking for a dolla or hand out,
Check yourself
If you can spare a dolla man put right there
If you can spare a dolla man put right there
But what I need is, what I need is…Change.

(Verse2)
Kick it like a kick back, stocking up on well stacked
Pretty pennies, shinny Chevy’s, ooh and a Cadillac
Whips owned by the oldest whips holding hands back
It’s a Factory, class suits and class acts
Gotta to, get to where you getting at
Gotta throw to, get the top of ladders back
Climb to the top and push me off, same stats
Say you grounded it’s the gravity your soul lack
Scared to drop, it’s a long way to the bottom see
Used to being lavish, live without the luxury
I ain’t wealthy, man, speaking monetarily
If I lost it all, know fam is open arms to me
You be crushed by weight of everything material
Can’t imagine having nothing, that’s ethereal
Who is left to suffer, we the other in the serial
Cycle of the have-nots halves of the imperial

(Chorus)
When I put my hand out,
I ain’t asking for a dolla or hand out,
Check yourself
When I put my hand out,
I ain’t asking for a dolla or hand out,
Check yourself
If you can spare a dolla man put right there
If you can spare a dolla man put right there
But what I need is, what I need is…Change.

(flourishes)

(Verse 3)
Livin for a dolla screaming life is priceless
If time is money and we broke are we timeless?
How does war of the sake of peace write less
Check the history, tell me do you fight less?
Captivated by Freedom’s ideology
Only win when you live without apology
I’m sorry only if I ever let the knowledge be
Lost in the mind of the rhymes of the poetry
Livin for a dolla screaming life is priceless
If time is money and we broke are we timeless?
How does war of the sake of peace write less
Check the history, tell me do you fight less?
Captivated by Freedom’s ideology
Only win when you live without apology
I’m sorry only if I ever let the knowledge be
Lost in the mind of the rhymes of the poetry

(Breakdown)
Turn right give what’s left to a young one,
Turn left, lower arms and raise sons
Hands high to the sky so I raise one
You can never tell a lie to a brave one
Turn right give what’s left to a young one,
Turn left, lower arms and raise sons
Hands high to the sky so I raise one
You can never tell a lie to a brave one
(beat end)
You can never tell lie to a brave one
