Paid the cost to be the boss
Paid the cost to be the boss
Paid the cost to be the boss

Look at me

Look at me

Paid the cost to be the boss
Paid the cost to be the boss
Heh!

Havin fun, fooling around
Havin fun, got money to boot

Cause I paid the cost to be the boss
Paid the cost to be the boss
Paid the cost to be the boss
Caught,tracked

Paid the cost to be the boss
Im a bad mutha

Head for the turn around
Head for the turn around
told you so!

Paid the cost to be the boss...........
