What's up?
I wanna dedicate this one to
All my ballers, shot callers
You know how we do
We turn nothing into something

From the South Side to the East Side
From the ghetto to the high rise
Look at how we livin' now, oh yeah
Check out how we livin' now, ooh oh, oh
From the hooptie to the Benz-o
From the Greyhound to the Limo
That's how we rolling girl, oh yeah
Look at how we rolling now, oh, oh

We took nothing
And turned it into something
We took nothing
And turned it into something
Turned it into something

Check it out
From the iced D to the Cristal
From the swap meet to the big mall
That's how we balling girl
Check out how we balling now, oh
From sexin' to making love
From protection to no glove
That's how we're making babies now
A little G just like me, hey can't you see?

We took nothing
And turned it into something
We took nothing
And turned it into something
Turned it into something

I ain't never gonna leave you girl
I ain't never gonna go nowhere
I ain't never gonna hurt you girl
And I ain't never gonna beat you girl
And I ain't never gonna let you down
I ain't never gonna make you frown
I ain't never, I ain't never, I ain't never gonna
I ain't never gonna
I ain't never gonna leave you girl
I ain't never gonna go nowhere
I ain't never gonna hurt you girl
And I ain't never gonna beat you girl
And I ain't never gonna let you down
I ain't never gonna make you frown
I ain't never, I ain't never, I ain't never

We took nothing
And turned it into something
We took nothing
And turned it into something
Turned it into something

Look we've got so much her together babe
You see we took nothing and turned it into something, oh
Yeah, you and me together
Check it out lemme break it down

See one year of courting
Two years of kissing
Three years of fuckin'
And four years of making love
Said just you and me, you and me
And that equals eternity
They say that we'll last
See one year of courting
Two years of kissing
Three years of fuckin'
And four years of making love
That's you and me
That's the way a love should be
Said we did
Look at what we did, look at we did
We took all our tiny fingers and put them together
And we made up something so good, so sweet
Everybody wants it, everybody wants it
We took nothing
Nothing, nothing
Said we took nothing, me and you
You and me, you and me baby
