This Way

[Kanye West]
Now turn it up, (a little louder)
Turn it up, (a little louder)
Turn it uuup, (a little louder)
Turn it up, (a little louder)
Now turn it up (can't live my, I, I can't live my)
(I can't live my, I, I can't live my)
Now turn it up, turn it up

I can't live my I, I can't live my,
Life this way,
Continue really get high
Instead of runnin 'round, lock one bird down
It's a new day gotta do it big just to get by
Show no respect can't live that way
You hold my cheque can't live that way
Now my chick on deck, can't live that way
They say what they like, but I've been that way
Our moves calculated through the lense, almost here
Success will be the best revenge
Man, from Clint East' to Kanye West (whut up, whut up!)
Yourself can't chill look everyday is sex (everyday!)

This time I made up my mind
This time I'm back on my grind
I know theirs things in my life
That I'ma let go startin tonight
(I can't live my, I, I can't live my)
(I can't live my, I, I can't live my)
I can't live my, I, I can't live my
I can't live my this way

(can't live my, I, I can't live my)
This way (I can't live my, I, I can't live my)
This way, I can't live my, I, I can't live my
I can't live my life this way

[Kanye West]
Kanye to the
My favorite girl wanna leave just because I got a girlfriend
My freak girl tell me now she a christian
My white girl wanna move back to Michigan
I'm pullin girls off the bench like a "six-men"
I'm in the club doin the same ol' two step
While Omegas doin the same ol' que step
I had my money on my mind I was thinkin green
She a pledge AKA she was pink and green
I wanna good girl she want a gentleman
We sayin' the same thing like a synonym
I wasn't really spittin game I was scrimmigin
My pimpinship so hard it needs censorship
I'ma chicagoan till Chicago ends
Till we blow like Chicago wind
I don't know what's better, gettin laid or gettin paid
I just know I'ma gettin one, the other's gettin away
This way

[Repeat Chorus]

[Rakaa Iriscience)
Go 'head, flip a coin so the games'll stop
Believe I know the drama give name to pop
I learnt before the hot flame came the spark
It's like 'fore the pop fame came the park
But this industry'll play with yo' life man
They playin with yo' rent, food, water and lights man
That's why Rakaa puts it like that ol tiny T jam
The batter ram, then I'm off to Amsterdam
To rest up for strenght to deal with this way
To deal with these deals to deal with this hate
I dedicate this Jam Master Jay
Run-DMC showed me how to walk, this way

[Repeat Chorus]
