VERSE 1

How you gonna say what you can and can't do?
Sitting in the crib parked in front of the tube
You're mad, at the world like she owe you
Whatcha think? opportunity's gonna come looking for you?

PRE CHORUS

Not a damn thing changed
You're just another football, waiting to be tossed in the game
You're flossin again, you talk a good game
But you're still tryin hard to maintain

CHORUS

Little brother, a ship can't sail without the water
The world could be yours if you want her
But you gotta be willing
To go out and get it
When you get it keep winning

VERSE 2

Everday you're out slinging that thing
No worries or cares, or what you're mama may say
Tryin get you want in your life
The cars, the clothes, the hos, the ice

PRE CHORUS

Not a damn thing changed
You're still another football, waiting to be tossed in the game
You're flossin again, you talk a good game
But you're still strugglin hard to maintain

CHORUS

Little brother, a ship can't sail without the water, no
The world could be yours if you want her
But you gotta be willing
To go out and get it
When you get it keep winning
Little brother, no
A ship can't sail without the water
The world could be yours if you want her
But you gotta be willing
To go out and get it
When you get it keep winning

BRIDGE

Everything you want could be
Yours if you were just to try
All the troubles that you feel
Fade away like shooting stars across the sky
All the dreams and hope you feel
Soon someday shall be fulfilled
Time is moving rapidly
Don't let it pass you by, yeah

CHORUS

Little brother, a ship can't sail (without the water), no

The world, the world is yours, the world is yours
(could be yours if you want her)

But you gotta be willing to go out and get it and keep winning
(But you gotta be willing to go out and get it when you get it keep winning)

Little brother, no

You know we got to love one another now
(A ship can't sail without the water)

The world is yours, The world is ours
(The world could be yours if you want her)

But you gotta be willing to get it, get it and keep winning
(But you gotta be willing to go out and get it when you get it keep winning)

Little brother a ship can't sail (without the water), no

The world, the world is yours
(The world could be yours if you want her)

But you gotta be willing to go and get it, and win it
(But you gotta be willing to go out and get it when you get it keep winning)

Little brother, win it now
(Little brother a ship can't sail without the water)

FADE OUT
