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,
What you think opportunity's gonna come looking for you?
Not a damn thing changed.
You're just another football waiting to be tossed in the game.
You're flossing again,
You talk a good game, but you're still trying hard to maintain.
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.
Everyday you're out slinging that thing.
No worries or cares of what your mama may say.
Trying to get what you want in your life.
The cars, the clothes, the hos, the ice.
Not a damn thing changed.
You're still another football waiting to be tossed in the game.
You're flossing again,
You talk a good game,
But you're still struggling hard to maintain.
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.
Everything you want could be yours if you were just to try.
All the troubles that you feel will fade away like shooting stars across the sky.
All the dreams I hope you feel soon, someday, shall be fulfilled.
Time is moving rapidly.
Don't let it pass you by, yeah.
Little brother, a ship can't sail without the water, no.
The world could be yours (world is yours) if you want her, (world is yours)
But you gotta be willing to go out and get it.
When you get it, keep winning.
Little brother, no,
A ship (you know we gotta love one another now) can't sail without the water.
The world could be yours (world is yours) if you want her, (world is ours)
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 could be yours if you want her (the world is yours),
But you gotta be willing to go out and get it.
When you get it, keep winning.
Little brother, get it now, a ship can't sail without the water...
