(Bunn)

I wanna ball like I never did ball before [Before, before, before]
I wanna ball like I never did ball before [Before, before, before]
I may never get a break like this in life no more
Well, I wanna ball like I never did ball before [Before, before, before]
I wanna ball like I never did ball before [Before, before, before]
I may never get a break like this in life no more

Got money in my pocket
I ain't begging for bread
Cadillac El Dorado
Well, it's gone to my head
I got a short time living and a long greasy time to pay (play) dead
Ain't doing no favours, ain't asking for none
Honey, I got money, I can pay for my fun
That's the way I want it, that's the way it must be done

[Because]
I wanna ball like I never did ball before [Before, before, before]
I wanna ball like I never did ball before [Before, before, before]
I may never get a break like this in life no more

A certain little mama [You ???? for me]
Gonna jump and shout [Oh, yeah]
When the El Dorado rolls up [ Ah]
And I'll come walking out [???]
Gonna tell ya pretty baby [Say you like nothing]
You don't know what it's all about
(I've got) No special woman [No special woman]
Want no special friend [No special friend]
Want a good time today [Good time today]
Tomorrow may be down again [May be down again]
Don't dial my number [Oh, Lord]
I'll tell you when [I'll tell you when]

I wanna ball like I never did ball before [Before, before, before]
Really wanna...never did ball before [Before, before, before]
I may never get a break like this in life no more
