Ice Cube – The Curse Of Money lyrics

[Intro - Sleep]
Man I'm glad I caught you at your momma' house homey
Hey wassup Cube?
Wassup man? You still got your pager right or you lost it?
(It's the curse, the curse.... The curse, the curse)
Y'know my code right? I been pagin you for about a week man
(The curse, the curse) I heard about the deal ya got
Greed, Khop (The curse, the curse)
Check this out, you owe a nigga somethin man
[Ice Cube]

Do the math baby, do the math (Ch-ching)
Do the math baby, do the math (Ch-ching)

Do the math baby (The curse, the curse)
Do the math baby (The curse, the curse)
It's the curse of money, once you get it, fool you got it
Niggas plotted, to have me knotted up in basements
Buy a new pair of drawers and motherfuckers spot it
Till these cocksuckers see what they're faced with
Their fantasies of a life stress-free
Full of orgies, in the Florida Keys
But this bullshit is so thick, it's like mountains
Sick of threatenin all my lawyers and accountants
Soon they realise, I don't invest in hoes
The decibals, gold diggers goin for the testicles
Sometimes it's like hell on earth
When everybody tryin to get your ass for all your worth
(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby
It's the curse

(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby
(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby
(The curse, the curse) Do the math

When you hot, they think you got more than you got
When you not, motherfuckers callin you a flop
I just laugh, the curse everybody wanna have

Before you sell your soul better do the math
I start to scream shit like "May day, may day"
Cos motherfuckers think it's all grav-ay wit my pay day
And like I said, it's the curse of money
They start laughin at your jokes when they ain't that funny (Ha ha ha)
See this ass kissin yes man
Shakin hands with the left hand, get my weap-an, get to stepp-an
Fuck every phony ass nigga round me
Stick a shaft up your ass like Richie Roundtree (Yea yea!)
Got to have some gas money if you goin
If not who you fuckin? Who you flowin? Who you owin?
Not even hard rhymes that's describin these hard times
In '98 don't shit come free

(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby, do it
(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby, aha
(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby
(The curse, the curse) Do the math, ooh wee

When you hot, they think you got more than you got
When you not, motherfuckers callin you a flop
I just laugh (haha), the curse everybody wanna have
Before you sell your soul better do the math

[Mack 10]
To relax I smoke a stick, the shit make me sick
Gotta gang of new homies, and relatives on my dick
No time for drama, busters get sprayed
Bitches wanna get layed, and everybody need their bills paid (Everybody)
Motherfuckers, sweat me like a spy
They wanna kick it cos I, got the curse of mulah
Make me wanna start scrappin and look at me to make it happen
What the fuck was they doin before Mack 10 was rappin?!? Tell me
When I'm rushed by gold diggers everytime I get bigger? (Ch-ching)
(What the fuck?) how can I remain a man of seven figures
Like David Banner, when I tweak I turn green
And everytime I'm seen it's like people start to fiend

It's the curse
[Ice Cube]
(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby [1 million, 2 million]
(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby [aha]
(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby [3 million]

(The curse, the curse) Do the math
[Yeah they do]
When you hot, they think you got more than you got
I just laugh, the curse everybody wanna have
When you not, motherfuckers callin you a flop [Motherfuckers]
Before you sell your soul better do the math [Better do it]

(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby
[Get the fuck outta here]
(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby
[With dollar signs in your eyes]
(The curse, the curse) Do the math baby [Ha ha, sheeit]
(The curse, the curse) Do the math

[Outro - Ice Cube]
Leave your ass broke
Rabbit ears, nigga for pockets, haha he
I'm cursed! Hahaha, but I love it
