"You win, you lose"

Foods gettin’ lower
Money coming slower
Hopefully I can make a change
When I grow up,

Do something for my peers
Try to keep’em in my prayers
Only thing that got me scared,

Daddy doin’ 20
I’ll see’em when I’m 20
I think he out earlier
But my best guess is at 20,

Stuck in the street life
40 tucked just to sleep tight
Start work with the street life
To bring it home so we can eat right.
