Honey, we got off on the wrong foot, baby
'Cause the relationship has been so good lately 
If I don’t do what I do
Then who’s gon' put food on the table?
It is what it is, I’m just handling biz
But I do what I do so we can live
I only do what I do so we can live
I only do what I do so we can live
I only do what I do so we can live
I only do what I do so we can live

Mama don’t work, heater don’t work
 Police pulled me over and said
He seen weed on my shirt 
I pray to the lord and ask for forgiveness 
If he popped my trunk I can get a life sentence 
He came a little closer and told me that he smellin’ it
I said “I rolled one up
I won’t insult your intelligence 
But I threw it out the window half a mile ago”
He asked me when the last time I smoke 
I said a while ago
 Forgive me officer 
I’m stressin’ and my pockets sore
Hurtin’
Chillin’ with my dog like a fuckin’ Labrador 
He said he ain’t with the bull, matador  Looked at the top of my car
Like what this ladder for?
I told him I was puttin’ goals up in the mornin’
And I’m goin’ to my uncle’s house 
To see if he can join me
The officer got a call so he was needed 
And he told me slow it down
And I told him please believe it
Then I proceeded to go to my uncle’s house 
Well it really wasn’t my uncle 
It was a junkie’s house 
He got a badass niece with a donkey now
Pullin’ out the parking lot
 Headed to the other spot
Out all night, addict with the addicts 
'Causin’ Havoc, I’m a Prodigy  Niggas know we Mobbin’ Deep
 Gotta stay up when everyone fall asleep 
The good die young, and promises are hard to keep
I left my old job, and now them niggas hardly speak 
I got a new job, and plus I’m making more a week
The girl that I’m with is like a young Kimora Lee
I got them folks fiendin’, pumpin’ that Jodeci 
Sippin’ and my soda pink, you niggas is toilet seat
 Check my resume, it used to say I sold quarter keys
 Conduct disorderly, stayin’ in the trap house  Trips went to work, I’m so glad that it mapped out

Honey, we got off on the wrong foot, baby
'Cause the relationship has been so good lately 
If I don’t do what I do
Then who’s gon' put food on the table?
It is what it is, I’m just handling biz
But I do what I do so we can live
I only do what I do so we can live
I only do what I do so we can live
I only do what I do so we can live
I only do what I do so we can live

Baby
So good, lately 
Ooh Ooh, so we can live

So so so so so we can live
So so so so so we can live
So so so so so we can live
So so so so so we can live

 Simon says, monkey see monkey do
I wore the shirt, you wore the same shirt too
See me with my bitch 
You buy your bitch the same purse  Shoot you and your nigga 
Y’all can share the same hearse 
This that murder 1, mixed with the bubblegum 
Kept working my dun dun duns
Come get your mama some
Nigga, this that slum talk, some say we talks slums
I rarely finish the end of my words  Watch the rims hit on the curve 
And what a nigga really care about a lisp?
 People arguin’ over me while I’m layin’ in a bitch  Death to a snitch, get it while you can and, oh shit
Its 3:30 in the A.M.
We’re just gettin’ started like when I had the van
 Bought the tour bus and put some niggas in the pass
Your style good enough to put in a glass bag
And you know I’m getting’ mine
You should use a hashtag 
Flow off the hinges tryna fuck all her friendses 
Just killed her pussy 
You gon’ have to use forensics  Organized crime, you can put me in a lineup 
Plus I got dreads 
I’ll pay a hundred for the line up

So so so so so we can live
So so so so so we can live
So so so so so we can live
So so so so so we can live

 Appetite for destruction, and I don’t need a menu
So far ahead of y’all niggas 
I can see you in my rear view
See you in my rear view
One of your headlights out nigga 
I just got my first R&B bitch 
And got head all night with her
She said she tired of the generic 
I say what up, she say what up
What up, you a parrot?
I’m like “Bird ass girl
Aren’t you sick of the rhetoric?”
And if I ain’t arrogant, I’m out of my element 

So so so so so we can live
So so so so so we can live
So so so so so we can live
So so so so so we can live
