Ninety-six thousand! Damn! Ninety-six thousand! Dollars? Holler! Ninety-six thousand! Yo, somebody won! Ninety-six thousand! Yo If I won the lotto tomorrow Well, I know I wouldn't bother goin' on no spendin' spree I pick a business school and pay the entrance fee! Then maybe if you're lucky, you'll stay friends with me I'll be a businessman, richer than Nina's daddy Donald Trump and I on the links, and he's my caddy My money's makin' money, I'm goin' from po' to mo' dough Keep the bling, I want the brass ring, like Frodo! Oh no, here goes Mr. Braggadocio Next thing you know, you're lying like Pinocchio Yo, if you're scared of the bull, stay out the rodeo! Yo, I got more hoes than a phone book in Tokyo! Ooh, you better stop rappin', you not ready It's gonna get hot and heavy And you already sweaty Yo-yo-yo! Yo! Yo! I'm sorry is that an answer? Shut up, go home and pull ya damn pants up! As for you, Mr. Frodo of the Shire 96 G's ain't enough to retire C'mon, I'll have enough to knock your ass off its axis! You'll have a knapsack full of jack after taxes! Ninety-six thousand! Ay, alabanza! Ninety-six thousand! No me diga! Ninety-six thousand! I never win shit! Ninety-six thousand! For real, though, imagine how it would feel goin' real slow Down the highway of life with no regrets And no breakin' your neck for respect or a paycheck For real, though, I'll take a break from the wheel and we'll throw The biggest block party, everybody here It's a weekend when we can breathe, take it easy Yo! Ma, it's me, check my tickets! Check one two three What would you do with ninety-six G's Who me? I mean if it's just between you and me Esa pregunta es tricky! I know With ninety-six G's I'd start my life with a brand new lease Atlantic City with a Malibu Breeze And a brand new weave! Or maybe just bleach Y'all are freaks Yo, I'm just sayin' It's silly when we get into these crazy hypotheticals You really want some bread? Then go ahead create a set of goals And cross them off the list as you pursue 'em And with those ninety-six, I know precisely what I'm doin' What'chu doin'? What'm I doin? What'm I doin? It takes most of that cash just to save my ass from financial ruin Sonny can keep the coffee brewin' I'll spend a few on you 'Cause the only room with a view is a room with you in it And I could give Abuela Claudia the rest of it Just fly me down to Puerto Plata, I'll make the best of it! You really love this business? No Tough, Merry Christmas You're now the youngest tycoon in Washington Hiznits! Yo, with ninety-six thousand, I'd finally fix housin' Give the barrio computers with wireless web browsin' Your kids are livin' without a good edjumication Change the station, teach 'em about gentrification The rent is escalatin' (What?!) The rich are penetratin' (What?!) We pay our corporations when we should be demonstratin' (What?!) What about immigration? (What?!) Politicians be hatin' (What?!) Racism in this nation's gone from latent to blatant (Oooh!) I'll cash my ticket and picket, invest in protest Never lose my focus 'til the city takes notice And you know this man! I'll never sleep Because the ghetto has a million promises for me to keep! You are so cute! I was just thinking off the top of my head Ninety-six K: Go If I win the lottery, you'll never see me again Damn, we only jokin', stay broke then I'll be downtown Get a nice studio, I'll get out of the barrio For real, though (If I win) Imagine how it would feel goin' real slow (the lottery) Down the highway of life with no regrets (You'll wonder where) And no breakin' your neck for respect or a paycheck (I've been) Yo! It's silly when we get into these crazy hypotheticals (I'll be downtown) You really want some bread? Then go ahead, create a set of goals And cross 'em off the list as you pursue 'em (See you) And with those ninety-six I know precisely what I'm doin' (Around) Check one two three (If I win) And with the dollah dollah (If I win) With ninety-six G's We get to hollah hollah Between you and me We rock the hot Impala Why-oh! With ninety-six G's We movin' on tomorrah A brand new lease We rock beyond mañana A Malibu Breeze We drop the mama drama We stop at the Bahamas, we drink piña coladas! Poppin' lockin' up the block, drop it like it's hot! oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh (I'll be downtown!) oh oh oh oh oh oh (We could pay off the debts we owe!) oh oh oh (We could tell everyone we know!) oh oh oh (I could get on a plane and go!) oh oh oh (We be swimmin' in dough, yo!) No tip-toein' We'll get the dough 'n' Once we get goin' We're never gonna Stop tip-toein' We'll get the dough an' Once we get goin' We're never gonna Ninety-six thousand We'll get the dough 'n' Ninety-six thousand Once we get goin' Ninety-six thousand We'll get the dough 'n' Once we get goin' We're never gonna stop!
