Lupe Fiasco – Coulda Been lyrics

[Verse 1:]
If I wasn't Rapping, I Probally Be Wrastlin
Hand Ta Hand, Grappling, On The Coner Of Madison
Or Realestating Tryna Sell You A Mansion,
Or Rollerblading Doing 360 Flash Bends,
Or I'll Prolly Be Flipping Da Burger, Attemptin A Murder, Paralized, Sipping On Gerber
I Could Be Working At Jewels, Chain Snatching, Jerking Ya Jewels,
Homeless, Working For Food,
I Might Be Cleaning Ya Pool, Teaching Ya School, Preaching To Fools,
Leaching, Smoking Weed To Be Cool
At dmv's Holding Lines Up, A Whine Duck In Line Ups, Who Times Up
Full Of Holes In A Whole In A Fine Tux,
Out On Parole, Out Of Control, Holden Ya Dime Up
I Could Be Lazy Sitting On Your Couch
Or I Could Be Crazy Cussin Pidgeons Out

[Hook x2]

I Could Be Hustlin Bags,
Struggling Bad,
If I Wasn't Up In The Lab,
Shit, I Just Might Be,
Cutting Ya Grass
Walking Ya Dog
Pumping Ya Gas
Or Nuttin At All

[Verse 2:]
Could Be Thanking The Academy,
Friend Of The Family,
Ya Man, Delivering Bail,
Or I Could Be The Man That Delivers Your Mail,
Or I Could Be Taking The Stand, Drinkin On L
This Could Be My Third Life, Or My Third Strike Or My Third Wife,
Been Garbage On My First Mic
I Coulda Got Off Easy, That nigga Deserves Life
Orcan Man Searching For Termites
I Could Be Sticking Up Conveniece Stores Or Twistin Up What You Fiendin For
Or Gettind Bucked With The Meanest whores
Been Giving Up, On Top Of a Building Leaning Forward, With No Wings To Soar It
It Could Of Kidnapped My Daughters, Been Extorted For A Couple Of Porshes
I Might Be Drunk From The Moe, Stombling Slow, Someone Ya Know,
Running Da Show, Or Shoveling Snow

[Hook x2]

I Could Be Hustlin Bags,
Struggling Bad,
If I Wasn't Up In The Lab,
Shit, I Just Might Be,
Cutting Ya Grass
Walking Ya Dog
Pumping Ya Gas
Nuttin At All

[Verse 3:]
I Could Be Starting Galding, Or Planting The Garden, Or Security Gaurding
Or I Could Be Starving And Eating Out Ya Garbage
And Found Stardom, Starring In Sitcoms Wit Martin
I Coulda Been Marching Wit Martin, Handcuff,
Nullface, Over The Face With No Comment,
I Might Not Even Be Darkskin, I Might Not Even Be Conscious, Comatose from a Over Dose
A R&B Singer Blowing The Notes, Tailor Sowing The Coats, A Sailor Rowing The Boat
I Coulda... Boxed A Little, Fought For The Title, Lost,
And Lost My Vitals On The Way To The Hospital
I Could Of Lost My Business
Won The Lotto And Lost My Ticket
I Could Be The Last One To Cross And Finish It
I Could Be You, I Could Be Him, He Could Be Me, We All Got A Job

[Hook x4]

I Could Be Hustlin Bags,
Struggling Bad,
If I Wasn't Up In The Lab,
Shit, I Just Might Be,
Cutting Ya Grass
Walking Ya Dog
Pumping Ya Gas
Nuttin At All
