 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Doesn't really get this cold in the summer 
Doesn't really get this dark in the day 
Boy they really turn their backs when you talking 
When they lay somebody's else's head where you lay 
Know that I ain't easy to be hard 
I find it even harder to be easy 
You know sometimes I close my eyes and I wonder 
If I ever left how much you diss me 
Yo somebody told me blood is thicker than water 
If a man can say then he can recognize his own daughter 
And if hell is below would you pay the price to go 
Then I can make it to heaven for sure 

This is a cold world, (what) 
Cold world 
We make it this way, but we don't like it this way 
This is a cold world, (what) 
Cold world 
We make it this way, but we don't like it this way 

Just don't know what they say what they talking 
So I just let a nigga say what he feel 
Walkin' with the kid they gon' end up in the coffin 
But I'ma say what I gotta say with this deal 
Niggas hating you fly in the town 
Might as well be charging while they hating 
I'm a dog so I don't f*ck with cats 
If they gon' have me living in this fake pen 
It's about time I be at them 
Look what you all did to this rap shit 
Know a nigga is wrong, come on with the cat shit 
Wack shit, get niggas torn down slap quick 
Bam, bam, bam go down that quick 
Acting like the chauffeur's gone 
And I'm sayin' got mill with the ruthless one 
It's 2 piece, if your faggot ass 2 persona 
I go hard, no dog don't do it, too late it's done 
Hold up, I'ma show you why a dog is the illest, killest 
You might touch it, but you feel it 
The realest nigga to ever do it, the realest nigga to ever do it 
And y'all gon' bring me back to it 
Y'all gon' make me lose my mind 
Middle name is crime, came from crime 
You thought I'ma change in time, niggas don't know me 
But you been holdin' something 
You ain't gotta get show me 

This is a cold world 
Cold world 
We make it this way, but we don't like it this way 
This is a cold world 
Cold world 
We make it this way, but we don't like it this way 

The tunnel looks bright up from behind but you gotta keep moving 
Moving, moving because if life stops spinning in the right direction 
You lose it, lose it, lose it, lose it 
See in the night, I pray to keep me breathing 
To see another day to give them something to believe in 
'Cause I know I won't waste me this way 
When you tryin' hard to make a change
