[Mya:] Try to make it real compared to what?
Oh oh oh oh oh...oh oh oh oh
Sock it to me now

[Common:] They say money make a man strange
Is it money or we dont understand change
Money should be real we campaign If we shoe then just keep your thang thang
Maintain who we are as the gang chains
Everybody wanna star its the same game
I didn't travel this far to do the same thang
It's the trip not the real i was mainstream
Thats whats up

[Mya:] Try to make it real compared to what?
Try to make it reeeeeeal

[Man talks:.....]

[Mya:] oh

[Common:] The real can't be bought
But so taught
And told the boy tryed to keep the records off the sole
On the road to the riches he lost control
By the eye of the needle, I was often told
Disrespect for nothin is far from gold
In your actions all is told

[Mya:] ohh

[Common:] your in the game
You gootta have ball control
You see fame is all a road
New lights actions
Car when the camera snappin
Pop like is it another plan for passion
Are we really real or are we acting
Right through the fake smiles and mask
And rassionalize

[Mya:] Try to make it real compared to what?

[Common:] Some my people keep rockin on
All my people keep rockin on
