My Life Your Entertainment
by T.I.



T.I.
Drama
Ursher baby

Hey, hey (yeah man)
Hey what's happening everybody
I hope they get my good side
You know I gotta look good when I walk out the house
You know I know the camera's following (me to)
I know they taking pictures, right Drama
Hey man, you watch it I live it, you dig that
Y'all sit back relax get some popcorn man
I'm gonna make it a good show, you dig that
(Are you not entertained?)
This going make a hell of a movie huh

[Chorus]
My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it (live it)
I walk they follow (ay)
I talk they holler (ay)
Just here for your amusement
My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it (live it)
You waiting for me to lose it
I guess I'm just here for your amusement

Ay
The price of fame I think I paid, want my change I done gave
Everything in my possession for my seconds on the stage
For my name up in lights and multi-million record sales
I done gave up my life, can't get a moment to myself
When alone I ask myself, is it worth it? I ain't perfect
Neither is anybody else, but I think my kids deserve
To be with Daddy out in public without all the interruptions
When the lies and gossip's published I'm the topic of discussion
And I stay in trouble just to show these suckers I ain't lost it
And I'd do it all again that's the funny thing about it
I ain't playing, boy I'm 'bout it
Will I change, boy I doubt it
I done been a lot of things, I ain't never been a coward
See the paparazzi crowded all around me now
Same niggas who was dissing want a pound like I'm senile (fuck nigga)
Showered with support from my adoring fans
They hear T.I.'s arrested they're like here we go again

My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it (live it)
I walk they follow (ay)
I talk they holler (ay)
Just here for your amusement (my life)
My life, your entertainment (entertainment)
You watch it while I live it (live it) (whoa)
You waiting for me to lose it (whoa)
I guess I'm just here for your amusement (yeah)

You've seen it all before, guys know how the story goes
It's like 2Pac never died, sit back, enjoy the show
You see the shit that scares you senseless, I done lived through it
Knew the risks and the consequences and I still do it
And then I'm so fresh, them niggas mildew it
Not just a actor by profession, pimp, I live movies
That's why they whisper when they see me point and stare at me
Cause they just wanna live through me vicariously (vicariously)
Fashion weekend, Paris week, party like a rock star
Get blown by a top model till she catch lockjaw
Got the dough you get a year, stashed in my sock drawer
Showed you the troubles and the struggles of an outlaw
Top dog would not fall, I am not y'all (niggas)
Couple pages out the calendar and I'm out y'all
Kid listen, pay attention, you don't wanna be me
It's safer to watch it on T.V.

My life, your entertainment (entertainment)
You watch it while I live it (live it)
I walk they follow (ay)
I talk they holler (ay)
Just here for your amusement
My life, your entertainment
You watch it while I live it (live it)
You waiting for me to lose it (lose it)
I guess I'm just here for your amusement (yeah)

See I don't think it would even matter (to me)
Working a nine to (five) would it be better
I mean be honest, would you care to gossip about me ('bout me)
Not likely
I guess that's just the way that it goes (the way that it goes)
('Cause I know) See I can be somewhere out keeping it cool
(And get told) Almost anything instead of the truth
Y'all know more than I do, it's breaking news to me too
Easy killer y'all know that ain't how I move (ooh)
He said and she said (what) I did what, with they (who)
No not me I said (not me) she gave me no head (ooh)
Won't get me again (hey) I pleaded the fifth (hey)
I know better than to ever talk during the film
Man them flashing lights can blind your eyesight
To when you can't see what's wrong from right
Well shorty 'til you walk a mile in my shoes
And understand this is who I am

Usher I completely concur
Life would be such a blur, obviously we prefer
Our privacy but instead we endure
Yes sir, don't expect nothing less of me
Cause this going probably be this way until the death of me
But for the hustle and the lady on my arm now
Plus all my kids and my mom's I'm a calm down
And yo, we doing just fine, and the time's just flying
Live one headline at a time
Ya dig

[Chorus]
