It's not all about the money
(It's not all about the money).
Cause I love what I'm doing for the people.
(I really love doing my job, I really do).
Don't know were I would be if this didn't happened.
But I finally made it...
(A lot of us don't graduate from high school. A lot us don't get a chance at being a superstar. A lot us don't get a chance to fufill our dreams and I'm thinking like God! If I wasn't doing this what would I be doing? Probably like braiding hair. Working at a super market. You know? Just husteling two jobs you know what I mean? At least trying to live.)
La, la, la, la
(I lost so much you know? I lost so, so much over the years cause like it's amazing how when you decide that you wanna do the right thing. When I say I "Finally Made It" I don't mean like sucsessfully, or wit money, I mean like...
I'm sprituatily sucessful right now. You know like tryin'...)
Never give up, never give up, never, never give up, never give up...
(I'm on my way to like... A place were I know... I never dreamed were I woud be and that's perfection... I'm striving for that... I don't think no one can ever be perfect, I'm striving again, striving against all things... So what I'm saying to all my fans is... If I can do it... I know ya'll can do it too...)
