Children: singing] (5X) "Ain't
no second time to appreciate" [Verse

1 C: L. Smooth]. First
of all you, better count your blessings When
you got C L. Now. you got bad boy your, connections In
return while, we live and we learn then, you know what it is To
only build a bigger future for the kids In
peace in, war lets, take it to the floor Every
time we take two steps the crowd takes four Lay
the heat how, I come to the street how, I cut through the beef Let
me handle that that's, why you make me chief It's
packed what, they want in this here Can
we weather the storm six, minutes C, L. Smooth. you're on All
the anger and the fear was, in the dressing room prayer That
we came out to light it up and put it in the air That's
real so, holler back at ya boy step, aside Leroy To
all my ladies who, want tickets enjoy, cause, I
spit it and you gotta get with it and you'll never forget it Yes
I, want the best out count, 'em all [Chorus

]:"Ain't
no second time to appreciate" To
the fans and to all my people that supported us "Ain't
no second time to appreciate" To
the mama and the daddy and everything they taught us "Ain't
no second time to appreciate" Tell
them kids they gotta stay in school or ride with us "Ain't
no second time to appreciate" When
it all goes down baby, All, We Got Is Us [Verse

2 C: L. Smooth]. You
tell 'em this is history in the making avoiding, disasters This
run is for the green jacket I, fit the, masters My
crew havin' business save, put, it in through my office The
security is tight and the secretary is gorgeous That's
official me, and Pete in the lab that's, what they want Pushin
that real hip hop up, to the front The
game's been good to me preserved, my youth Not
only did, it capture my goals and told me the truth Look
out my hustle made, a living paid, and driven See
why they tour around the world came to save us from prison It's
great I, rather love than hate You
think it fell out the sky I'm, here to tell you why, believe in faith Hard
work payin, of and them wishes comin' true Bolt
open and you out to lunch and, left us two Now
you know we can't let that pass to get that cash We
in the big numbers count, 'em all [Chorus

]:[Verse

3 C: L. Smooth]. Why
my Uncle Doc left me everything when he died and, When
pop passed two, weeks later I cried and, When
great grandma left it all went crazy now All
I had left was grandma Pam that's, my baby Can't
talk bad about me she, tell 'em why, we need to give her All
those roses while she could smell 'em I
live this moment used to stay how we was How
my mother came to her in a dream and told her Corey
will come out of this deep dark depression stand, by me Give
my insight a resurrection and heal me And
feel me what, you got is to love got, a thing This
little woman who brought back the thug let's, grind Ghetto's
Of The Mind while I'm in my prime I
left so, y'all can catch up I'm, ahead of my time Your
legacy and that lazy boy say it ain't fear My
next generation triple my digits add, 'em up like [Chorus
