Pretty Willie – This Is What They Told Me lyrics

[Intro:]
No no no no
No no no

What they told me

[Chorus:]
People use to tell me this could neva happen now I just smile and grin
This is what they told me
I told it would happen when I was much older nobody believe me then
Now they hear me on the radio
And they can't hate no mo
See me on the t.v. shows
Even the videos
I told it would happen
And this is what they told me

[Verse 1:]
I knew life would get better if I just stick to my dream
When or when but it gets hard some times
So much temptation we livin life on the line
I don't even think people know what I been through
Contracts and contacts can stress you
But strong faith
But keep it movin on
Keep it pressen on
Until the lord takes me home

[Chorus:]
People use to tell me this could neva happen now I just smile and grin
This is what they told me
I told it would happen when I was much older nobody believe me then
Now they hear me on the radio
And they can't hate no mo
See me on the t.v. shows
Even the videos
I told it would happen
And this is what they told me

[Verse 2:]
This force is such a struggle cause I have been around
Those who don't love me seem like they jealous of
The talent that I got from the heavens above
Why don't you say what you say when say what said to me
If you don't like what I doin
If you don't like what I'm doin then dirty just let me be
Look I walk strickly by faith and dirty not by sight
Cause every thang that look good ain't always right
I learn from experiance to me it's so serious
Even though I'm curious
No more hard times
The world is bout to be mine
Nobody taken my shine
Forget bout what you told me

[Chorus: x4]
People use to tell me this could neva happen now I just smile and grin
This is what they told me
I told it would happen when I was much older nobody believe me then
Now they hear me on the radio
And they can't hate no mo
See me on the t.v. shows
Even the videos
I told it would happen
And this is what they told me
