Chuckie Akenz – Annie lyrics

Annie, you had your name in the bright lights
I thought I saw your photograph
Having such a laugh in a magazine
Did it all come tumbling?
Annie(Annie) and you were made for the big time
(It's that fucking Annie, man, shit)
They said you're a star to be in the NME
(It's Chuckie A)
But the walls came tumbling down
(Fucking Annie, man)

Annie, you had your name in the bright lights
I thought I saw your photograph
Having such a laugh in a magazine
Did it all come tumbling?
[AJ Randall]
Annie and you were made for the big time
They said you're a star to be in the NME
But the walls came tumbling down

As these days go by
I can't help but reminisce
Everyday I'm getting high
Make a dollar till I'm rich
See that money comes quick
But it's quicker to leave
And in the hood we so hungry
Makes us regular thieves
Live a life fueled by greed
Chase material things
Drink juice and smoke weed
Handle serious bling
Feel we never gon win
Annie has us locked down
Just the feel of her skin
So many Annie shot down
And I'm sorry for the homies
That Annie came touched
Just a little too early on the block
It's so rough
Little sibling stay tough
Better days are far off
Keep your hope and stay up
A little heart is enough
I know these times is so hard
Trust me I feel it to
I pray to God for my people
Hope they making it through
Cause' these welfare checks
Life in the projects
Make a person fuck Annie
Just to see what's next
Oh Annie

Annie, you had your name in the bright lights
I thought I saw your photograph
Having such a laugh in a magazine
Did it all come tumbling?
[AJ Randall]
Annie and you were made for the big time
They said you're a star to be in the NME
But the walls came tumbling down

At times I wonder
Can we make it when we under?
A nine-to-five's too long
No time, we'd rather plunder
Every night we hear the thunder
As it echoes through the building
When the kids come and play
Bullets rip through our children
It's a fast way to live
But in the hood it's uncanny
They can see me in they tv
But they'll never understand me
(Never)
Oh Annie
Took the soul out of life
It's kinda hard to make an empty bag stand upright
And so we fight
I know we gonna make it through the struggle
Kinda like a grain
We gotta escape through the muzzle
A mothers trouble, it can never be compared
Do the best for her child when the fathers not there
We ain't looking for no fucking handouts
But at least understand what our lives are about
So hold your tears
There's no need for your remorse
Unless you living like we do
You'll never know it of course
Oh Annie

Annie, you had your name in the bright lights
I thought I saw your photograph
Having such a laugh in a magazine
Did it all come tumbling?
[AJ Randall]
Annie and you were made for the big time
They said you're a star to be in the NME
But the walls came tumbling down
