Are you ready for me?
Before I start, I just wanna get a few things off my chest.
(Take ya time brotha)
You see, being in the business that I am in, looks like everything I do,
Evrywhere I go, and everything I see,
Seems to be through some kind of magnifying glass-yes- Can I talk about it?
(Talk on, talk on)
While you're looking I suggest you take a good look'
And I hope you find just what it is you're looking for
Just like that song says- ain't nobody's business what I do- Now can I
(Move on, move on, move on brotha Kelly)
I remember when I was trying to be somebody, but I just didn't know nobody
(I didn't know nobody)
I said now
Can I say it again?
(Gon' and say it again)
Nowwww, every since God has blessed me, it seems that things are going a little
Bit different(yes it is)
Folks ain't it funny how things can say sometimes, why, even the Statue of
Liberty want some bump and grind
Can I getta witness off up in them jeeps (Amen)
I don't see nothing wrong with a little truth
Now-now, wait a minute, go that way
Ya see the good book says that the truth is the light, please, I think it's time
To turn on your lights and see the truth
Caaannnnnnnnnn, Can I talk on?
You don't know where I've been, you don't know where I'm going, You don't know
What I do.
Caaaannnnnn I get a witness?
So before you go tyring to pass judgement on me, pass judgement on yourself,
Worry bout yourself, and what yourself is doing, and where yourself is going,
And who yourself has been with
That way, you
Yoooouuuuu, You don't have to ever worry about nobody..... But jesus........
