Say he wanna be, shorty's gonna be a thug
Said he wanna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he's wanna be, shorty's gonna be's a thug
Said he's gonna be, one day he gonna be
Say he wanna be, shorty's gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorty's gonna be a thug

He was a nice middle class nigga
But nobody knew the evil he'd do
When he got a little bigger, get off the final blaze
While puffin' on a newport
Plottin' on a another way to catch a case
Was only sixteen, yet convicted as a Felon

With a bunch of old niggas
But you the only one who ain't tellin'
I tell you it's a cold world, stay in school
You tell me it's a man's world, play the rules
And fade fools, an' break rules until we major
Blaze up, gettin' with hoes through my pager

Was raised up, commencin' to money makin' tactics
It's getting drastic, niggas got automatics
My fingers on the trigga, tell the Lord
To make way for another straight thug nigga
I'm sitting gettin' buzzed
Lookin' for some love from the homies
'Cause, shorty wanna be a thug

Said he gonna be, say he gonna be
One day he’s gonna be, shorty’s gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, say he gonna be
One day he’s gonna be, shorty’s gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Say he wanna be, shorty's gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Say he wanna be, shorty's gonna be a thug

Straight from the Hall to the Penn
Adolescent nigga scaling weight and standing six feet ten
He carried weight like a Mack truck
Gonna bust on some playa haters
If the mutha fuckas act tuff
Then thats when the lethal weapon with the razor

This little nigga smokin' weed and gettin' blazed up
No one could figure, when the guns blast pull the trigga
Could take the life of a young nigga guns bigger
No mother and father, you see, the niggas all alone
Old timers my role model, the war zone

Released with this game 'til it's a part of me
My heart don't beat no fear and it ain't hard to see
The future is lookin' dim
I'm tryin' to make a profit out of livin' in this sin
I'm in the dark gettin' buzzed
Lookin' for some love out with the homies
'Cause, shorty wanna be a thug

Said he wanna be, said he's wanna be
One day he's gonna be, shorty's gonna be a thug
Said he's gonna be, one day he gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorty's gonna be a thug
Said he's gonna be, one day he gonna be
Say he wanna be, shorty's gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorty's gonna be a thug
Shorty gonna be a thug

You bad ass nigga, to the young niggas
Gotta stay sharp nigga, play your part
You got plenty of time, you bad mutha fuckas
You only get three mistakes
Then that's life, big baby, niggas crazy
Watch the signs, damn, you ain't but sixteen nigga? Sixteen?
That's a bad muthafucker
