Jay Dot Wright – Down & Out lyrics

[Chorus]
What you know about that struggle being down & out?
I think I finally got it figured out
Spent too much time worried what they think about.
I'm a daddy that's the only thing I care about! Tell Em Dot

[Verse 1]
I'm a felon I'm just lucky that I got a job
I remember I ain't have it man I had to rob
I was sick of being locked down in them prison walls
I ain't even know my daddy, man this song might piss him off
I keep shitting on them man I need some different drawls
They rap about the same thing I got a different cause
Cut from a different cloth, roaches, dirty dishes dog!
All this hating get me off! all the friends that did me wrong. YEAH
I'm just tryna to feed my fam, I ain't tryna be the man
I wish that you would understand, I know this is God's plan
All the shit that I've been through all the things I had to do
Just to hustle up some food! In my city it's a zoo
Doing drugs the thing to do, yeah they love to see you lose
Ima end up on the news, I ain't got no shit to prove
I done did there's all to do, give my credit where it's due!
They keep telling me to move! NAH
I ain't tryna leave my city I want us to win
If I get it then I get it let the fun begin!
I'm just tryna put my family in another crib
Get my mom a fucking benz, college for both of my kids!

[Chorus]
What you know about that struggle being down & out?
I think I finally got it figured out
Spent too much time worried what they think about.
I'm a daddy that's the only thing I care about! Tell Em Dot X2

[Verse 2]
I look my devils in the face & I won't let them win
If I didn't hit the pen, I don't think I would've lived
Would've never knew my kids, could've never helped them out
Would've never met my girl she the one who led me out
Got me out the game before I died up in that shit
I was higher than a blimp, all my friends was jumping ship
I was riding with that clip, couple sanctions & I'm going back
Welcome to my story this is how I got my life on track!
Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Yeah They Telling Me..Welcome Back
Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Yeah They Telling Me..Welcome Back

[Chorus]
What you know about that struggle being down & out?
I think I finally got it figured out
Spent too much time worried what they think about.
I'm a daddy that's the only thing I care about! Tell Em Dot X2
