feat. The LOX

Children growin', women produce
Men go working, some go stealing
Everyone's got to make a living

L-O-X yea J.Lo...
Yea, yea, yo, yo
We off the block this year
Went from a 'lil to a lot this year
Everybody mad at the rocks that I wear
I know where I'm goin' and I know where I'm from
You hear LOX in the air
Yea we're at the airport out
D-Glock from the block where everybody air-forced out
With a new white Tee you fresh, nothin' phoney with us
Make the money, get the mansion, bring the homies with us

[Verse: J. Lo]
From "In Livin' Color" to movie scripts
To "On the 6" to "J.Lo" to this
Headline clips
I stay grounded as the amounts roll in
I'm real I thought I told ya (I'm Real)
I've realy been on Oprah (I'm Real)
That's just me
Nothin' phony don`t hate on me
What you get is what you see, oh

[Chorus: J. Lo] (2x)
Dont be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still - I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little now I have a lot (south-side Bronx!)
No matter where I go I know where I came from (South side Bronx!)

[Verse: J. Lo]
I'm down to earth like this
Rockin' this business
I've grown up so much
I'm in control and lovin it
Rumors got me laughin' kid
I love my life and my public
Put God first And can't forget to stay real
To me it's like breathing, yeahh

[Chorus] (2x)

Yo, it take hard work to cash checks
So don't be fooled by the rocks that I got they're assets
You get back what you put out
Even if you take the good route
Can't count the hood out
After a while you'll know who to blend with
Just keep it real with the ones you came in with
Best thing to do is stay low, LOX and J.Lo
They act like they don't, but they know
They can't get a penny from the block
And at the end of the day, she's still just jenny from the block.
(Everyone's got to make a livin')

[Chorus] (4x).
