Said it's a sho' fire testimony
Check it, whoa, rap on the do'

What ya know about being po'
What ya know about borrowing
From the neighbor next door
What ya know about bumming rides
What ya know about heaven, swallow your pride

What do you do when you're through
When you're always helping people and
Nobody's there for you, come on now
What can I do or say
When you constantly standing in my face
Talking about

[Chorus]
Can you loan me 20 dollars
'till I get my check next week
Said I only got 20 dollars
And me and my baby got to eat

Can you loan me 20 dollars
'till I get my check next week
Said I only got 20 dollars
And me and my baby got to eat

Now I'm suppose to take from the child, oh lord
Make it harder on me just to make it worth your
While
Now honey, I don't think so
Cause you ain't pay me back the ten-spot
From three weeks ago, no

What do you do when you're through
When you're always helping people and
Nobody's there for you (tell me)
What can I do or say
When you constantly staring in my face
Talking about

[Chorus]

Tell me
What have you done for me
Besides being too busy, busy
Stressin' me constantly
Now I, now I, now I
I can see where your head is at
See I only got 20 dollars
And you still want half of that
