Refugee Allstars, Wyclef Jean – We Trying To Stay Alive lyrics

We got the Refugees, All Stars, rubba dubbin' in the club
Wyclef Jean, John Forte, Prizewell
Nah mean the streets are gettin' a little crazy
Looka looka looka looka looka

Looka looka looka here looka shorty got back
Should I ask her for a dance hold on theres too many in a wolf pack
And besides Dirtycash talkin' to her
Buyin’ her fake furs and takin’ her to the fever

Quite as his kept that ain’t even his Benz
She spends his franklins at the malls with her friends
Material girl, livin’ in a material world
But it's alright 'cause it's Saturday night

So mista funkmaster pump the Bee Gees
And all you college students bring your ouijas
Check the spellin, are E F you G E E get the cd from Sam Goody he he
You ain't even close wit the rhymes that you wrote
Don't be mad 'cause you broke

Let me clear my throat ah huh ah huh
John Forte grab the mic, roots sway it this way

I more than just a rhymer, you still a small timer
Hopin' that the game treat that ass a little kinda
Every step tango’d
Your beat don't concern me
I'm eatin' mangos in Trinadad wit Attorneys
(Oh yea)

My crews slang flow worldwide like a current
Wit da every spot where nobody get insurance
Brotha do the math you aint half near exotic
My man's claim true you forget about it

Pope hoe just a new stance like my influence
Well recognize you a lie tryin' do it
Got juice told your lady oops
We nuts baby smooth and charizmatic automatic
You gonna save me

Godbless the day that my sons survive
We strive to teach the youth baby and stay alive

Refugee camp nuts baby
John Forte yo watch your lady

Yo watch your lady
Eh ah special ill rhyme Dirtycash

Yo if you got more than
Dollar in your pocket right now put your hands up

Yo yo you can tell by the way I roll shorty that I'm a ladies man
A business man condos down the shore
Multi million pension plans
But it ain't in my plan to make move without the fam

I keep it intact you Clef do the track
John play da mack while I pay the tax
Business as usuall watchin' suspects
Steal my assetts get cut with Gillettes

We built this concept connect like Nynex
Drinks at the bar my American Express

Yo I cook up cook up
The cop a pull up pull up
Then I cuff, up cuff up
You who's callin' bluff

Now you shook up shook up
'Cause you lock up lock up
When I love up love up
You who's callin' bluff

Hey yo John is chillin' Dirtycash chillin'
What more can I say we livin'
That's what we got we got it good
And since you understood we be

Yeah live at the carnival
97 till infiniteha Refugee All Stars
Can't stop the shining, can't stop the shining
Can't stop the shining, can't stop the shining

You wanna stop the shining, you wanna stop the shining
You wanna stop the shining, you wanna stop the shining
Can't stop the shining, can't stop the shining
