Hey Man...you Know Sometimes You've Got To

Listen To Your Self Or Not Listen To Yourself

That's How It Is

As You Get A Little Older You Start Realizing Things

Realize It's Your Ego

It's Your Ego That's Enemy...you Know

That's The Only Thing That Can Stop You...is Your Ego

Hey...it's Crazy Man, But We Got You...so Listen



My Ego Had Me Doing Things That I Thought I'd Never Do

Like Being With Another Shorty When I Was With You

Unnecessary Shopping Sprees For Things I Didn't Need

Maybe It Was A Little Necessary

But Looking Back It Was Greed

Big Chains, Big Cars, Big Chips

More Things, More Girls, Long Trips

Maybe If I Would've Thought Of It

I Would Have Had A Chance To Enjoy It



[chorus]

But Now I Know It Was Just My Ego

My Ego Was My Enemy

I Thought It Was A Friend To Me

But It Was A Curse To Me

Cause It Brought Out The Worst In Me

My Ego Was My Enemy



I Was Flowin Like A Man When I Was A Boy Livin Every Man's Dream

Spending Time At The Strip Club...to Much Cream

Nobody Couldn't Tell Me Nothin Cause I Was Feeling Myself

Same Thing Almost Cost Me My Whole Life, And All Of My Wealth

Chicks Came And Went...i Stayed

G'd Up Cause I Was Paid

Damn All Those Games I Played

Hey, What More Can I Say



[chorus]



If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time

I Wouldn't Change A Thing

Cause It Made Me The Man I Am Today



[chorus]
