send* corrections to the typist [Chorus

woman: singing - repeat 4X] Take
a look in my life and see what I see [Yo..

Gotti] M-E-M-P-H-I-S
3
- 8 - 1 - 2 - 7 Shady
vista segshaw, lane My
ghetto game where, it all started for gotti Little
summin' running, around ( )?and naughty Asking
for dollars from niggaz I assumed was ballin' Twelve
years old and, talking about flippin' tomorrow Counting
my cheese think, I had 'bout 37 bones I
made up my mind tomorrow, gotti's starting to cone Bought
me a deal posted, up on top of the hill Throughout
these years i've, seen a lot of niggaz get killed My
life is the truth i'd, rather rap outside a booth Y'all
ain't talking about shit i'm, 100 proof That's..
what my life like [Chorus]

[Yo

Gotti] I'm
from the projects jaded, in fence, surround I'm
a normal teen black but, these chinks around 'cause
they on the corner stores like, how could they afford Something
we can't they, never seen these dollars before I
wrote this here for the government me, and my people sufferin' Break
bread with the immigrants not, word for recipients Tell
me what my benefit long, jazz fifty, cents Eighty-five
percent with no parole in parenthesis The
north memphis president here, to set the record straight Rob
steal, kill, put, some food on your people plates Going
lethal thrill, me before, these people kill me Gotti's
just a spokesman for the north and they gon' feel me My
block consists of lost..hope Gangbangers
and street-thugs plus.. coke There's
one way in and one way out take, summin' A
cop working wait; for drought like, yo gotti [Chorus]

[Yo

Gotti] Back
in the day used, to cut the five off of twenties Back
in the day I, used to cut the two off of tens Back
in the days I, thought everybody was friends Back
in the day the, hood had me trapped within Back
in the day used, to play "pick up and run" The
shit was fun but, nowadays we picking up guns Back
in the day me, and my niggaz fought with each other Shared
with each other but, nowadays we bust at each other Trust
in each other just like we done sealed-up leather Never
we're, all clever but on different levels Back
in the day used, to play "that's my car" Back
in the days I, never thought i'd make it this far Back
in the day used, to play "catch a girl get, a girl" Nowadays
niggaz, let a girl ruin they whole world Last
days it, was existing in the dirty south Rediculous
in the dirty south come, get me out this dirty south My
life like [Chorus]..

- repeat to fade
