[Lady humming]
Why you wanna treat me
[Lady humming]

[Too $hort:]
I was raised to cope with life
Make my own choices and hope I'm right
It's uphill all the way for me
I ain't goin' down or slowin' down don't play me G
I'm not the child of a millionaire born to be rich
Don't have a trust for the lust for one I get a b***h
So quick and all the stuff we have
Make her jealous girlfriends lust for cash
But f**k 'em 'cause while we on a whole different level
They still be sleepin' on the floor in the ghetto
And when they realize how you came up
Them hoes can't say nothin' 'cause the game is rough

[Chorus with Too $hort and lady singing:]
{Why you wanna treat me like that?}
'cause you don't know how to act when you're dealin' with a mack
{Why you gotta be like that?}
I ain't givin' no b*****s no kind of slack
{Just want you to love me back}
I can't love you 'cause you're nothin' but a rat
{Baby please don't act like that}
It's like that you should've stuck a knife in my back

[Too $hort:]
Now b***h I don't slang no crack
I can't go back to rappin' in my cango hat
You wanna put a little game on that?
How lame is that?
You fu***n' with the same ol' rats
We all have ups and downs
You're stuck with frowns and don't make a fu***n' sound
But let a n***a hit the lotto
Pop some bottles and tell everybody you got 'em
Now I done been on both sides of the mountain
For the bottom to the top and back down again
And all the way I give a hoe a fit
Not to wear it but to??? Little lonely b***h
You cryin' like a baby need a pacifier
You (pass a fly?) watchin' life pass you by
You couldn't make it to the top in an elevator
You think I want a sorry b***h?
Never player

[Chorus with Too $hort and lady singing]

[Too $hort:]
You're like a little baby with a shitty butt
You city s***s they say you can't get it up
And then they say you're way too hyper
Game is lighter need someone to change your diaper
But don't stop just give it all you got
Till you're hot even if you slang dope and get caught
It's like goin' platnium and gettin' dropped
You don't get no money you get props
But you're not 'cause you're really just dreamin'
I'm leavin'
I keep these fake hoes steamin'
They screamin'
She better face those demons
It's f**k season
Don't waste my evenin'
I believe him when he said the end was near
It's in the air a whole lot of pimps in here
I can't (com)pare 'cause I've been mackin' twenty four years
But since you wanna go there b***h I really don't care

[Chorus with Too $hort and lady singing louder:]
{Why you wanna treat me like that?}
B***h don't know how to act when she's dealin' with a mack
{Why you gotta be like that?}
I can't givin' no b*****s no kind of slack
{Just want you to love me back}
B***h I can't love you 'cause you're nothin' but a rat
{Baby please don't act like that}
It's like that b***h stuck a knife in my back

[Too $hort talking and lady humming/singing:]
It's like that
That's why I treat you like that
{Don't act like that}
B***h x2
{Why you wanna act like that?}
(Get) the f**k on
{Baby please don't act like that}
{Oh no}
Better learn the rules of the game
{Don't act like that}
You don't know how to act when you're dealin' with a mack
{Don't act like that [x2]}
I ain't givin' no b*****s no kind of slack
{No}
I can't love you 'cause you're nothin' but a rat
{Why you gotta be that way?}
It's like that
B***h it's like that
{Don't act like that}
{Oh no}
Bring me that vsop
Passion blend
With a drop of yak
