Ain't Gonna Figure It Yet
by Beenie Man



I'm brave but I'm shaking
I'm near but yet I'm far
I don't believe in civilization
But yet I still drive a car
I'm crippled but I'm walking
I'm freed yet I'm barred
I don't believe in hard work
But still I have a farm

[Chorus]
But look what it all comes down to
Ain't gonna figure it yet
'Till you have one hand full of ashes
And the other hand is putting your soul to rest

I'm broke but I'm still spending
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm a sinner yet I'm an angel
I'm leading but I'm behind
I'm dumb but I'm talking
I'm seeing yet I'm blind
I'm dull but I'm still shinning
I'm alive but I can die

[Chorus]

I ain't hungry but I'm drinking
I hate liquor but I'm drinking wine
I'm puzzled to be crowned king
I'm the law but I do crime
I'm cool but I'm vicious
I'm a fool but I'm wise
I'm a politician but I'm not voting
I guess this is the end of my line

[Chorus]

I'm sad but I'm happy
I'm not gonna loose my mind
It's late but it's so early
And I wonder what's the time
