I'm a fool baby, fool yeah, uh
If I fuck up, forgive me
I'm a fool, I'm a fool, I'm a fool, yeah he,
Yeah, yeah

I'm a fool, hundred thousand for the jewels
Last year we killed the game
And left y'all browsing for the clues
Old niggas out here searching for that fountain of the youth
Money talks and hoes say it's... point of view
Don't make me act a fool like Malcolm before the suit
How can you justify, I testified and there's proof in it
Through out the years, she'd tears and spill truths
Somehow they love a nigga better
When he talk about is loot
Chain like a kaleidoscope, see light through a wider scope
And for I know this necklace really represents the news
Still I hit the jeweler, how much racks to make me cooler
I just play the game homie, I ain't making rules up
Started from the bottom, same way you lace your shoes up
So if I'm blowing cake, just blame it on the place I grew up
Where niggas had nothing but dreams and television
Got no plans of seeing hella prison
You can tell I'm living, right
I'm a fool
Never said I'm living right
Such a fool, for you!

Boy you a fool, boy you a fool
Boy you a fool, and they like
And they like, and they like
Boy you a fool, boy you a fool
Boy you a fool, and they like
And they like, and they like

Hey, I'm a fool, hunned thous to go to school
... debt me, and my mama dared me
Drowning in the pool
The first to go to college
They say knowledge is the truth
But these hoes on campus, make a young nigga drool
So we party skip class, get ass and talk cool
Meanwhile she back home work hard
I use that as my few
So I finally graduated,
But I'm sad to say it, I ain't learn a fucking thing
Except the game and how to play it
I'm a fool, no... on my shoes
No cuts out on prove
So fuck y'all reviews
She told me Cole I love you roll with you before the riches
But you way too educated to be calling women bitches
And calling brothers niggas
Pardon if I cross the line
But all the time thought you was different than
All them other niggas
I responded to her please don't put me on a pedestal
Cause I know better
And I'm still a fool
