Yesterday and Today
by Murs



Yesterday I and today I
Yesterday I and today I

Alright, alright I ain't getting out of bed today
9 to 5 to survive, there's gotta be a better way
Waking up early to punch in the clock
How I'm lookin' grown man with my lunch in a box
But my kids need socks and shoes,
I'm walking through the office (boss yelling)
Who you talking to don't you know on the streets I would've
Never mind, the past is the past I gotta leave it behind
But man back on the block I was a bonafide hustler
Spot popping off until the police rushed us
Handcuffed us I though I was gone
Could've cried thinking now I'd miss my son being born
But I was blessed, beat the case now I'm trying to reform
But this white folks make it so hard to move on
You gotta jump through hoops, anger management groups
But the fact I'm still standin' here today is proof that

Yesterday I felt the most hated, I thought I couldn't take it, they said I couldn't make it
And today I feelin brand new, I got nothing to lose, I'm bout to make moves
Yesterday I felt the most hated, I thought I couldn't take it, I fought until I made it
And today I feelin brand new, I got nothing to lose, get out my way move

On to the next, it was all about sex
When I first met my little baby girl annette
She was standing at the bus stop, sucking on a lollipop
Eyes collard green lean thicker than a pork chop
(stop) cause I don't eat swine
But this girl was so divine, that I had to make her mine
Called upon her a few times, she thought I was funny
Fell for it like a dummy, it was all for the money
(j-eah) growing up in the hood,
You would think I'd understand, but I never understood
Why she rarely came around when my dough wasn't good

Now you can call it puppy love, cause I got dogged out
Now in all my notebooks, I got her name crossed out
But she lost out, I just lost profit
When she left me in the cold, heart broke like my pockets and

Yesterday I felt the most hated, I thought I couldn't take it, they said I couldn't make it
And today I feelin' brand new, I got nothing to lose, I'm bout to make moves
Yesterday I felt the most hated, I thought I couldn't take it, I fought until I made it
And today I feelin' brand new, I got nothing to lose, get out my way move

You know the days when you just got the blues
All stressed and depressed from just watching the news
No matter what good you do, it seems you always get screwed
Got you caught up in your feelings, now you off in a mood
Shake that attitude and do what you can
Set a couple goals, follow through with your plans
Time wait for no man, and tomorrows not promised
So if she's still alive shoot a call to your momma
Cause the fighting and the drama, its just not worth it
Nobodies perfect ain't none of us worthless
We all got a place and we all got a purpose
Now I'm not taking y?all to Sunday service
But you clap your hands as you stand up and work it
Like you grand momma used to do that fan down at worship
Spread it, pop it, and wave it in my face
Put your hands around your waist,
Let me rock it to the bass like

Yesterday I felt the most hated, I thought I couldn't take it, they said I couldn't make it
And today I feelin' brand new, I got nothing to lose, I'm bout to make moves
Yesterday I felt the most hated, I thought I couldn't take it, I fought until I made it
And today I feelin' brand new, I got nothing to lose, get out my way move
