That's right, album number ten, Short Dawg's in the house
It's gettin' close to the end y'all
But we gonna kick it like this on the last album

Now let me holler at you partner, spit this game
In you ear for a minute, quit complaining
'Bout how you can't spend it 'cause you ain't got it
You got what it takes but not enough to get started
I hope you get the message, no it's not a test it's
Just me ridin' legit, they can't arrest me or bust me
I'm still hungry, I want some more stuff
Get fat and watch my whole crew blow up
So get yours, and buy my new album
Peep the game and don't be like Calvin
Get everything you want, get real, get you mail
Get your girl to make bail and get your ass out of jail
You should be gettin' it, everything you want
Everything you dreamed of, never have to front
You should be gettin' it, gettin' money
I'm talking 'bout you black, don't laugh it ain't funny
You should get a good lawyer, like Johnny Cochran
Swear to tell the truth, hell no I didn't pop him
Get your kids to school, so they can get an education
Get a degree, and take a vacation
You see I got all my game from the streets of California
Young millionaire with no high school diploma
Livin' real good, taking care of my folks
Roll up a fat one for the players to smoke
Short dawg in the house, I know you ain't trippin'
'Cause Life is Too $hort, you gotta Get In Where You Fit In
Stop looking for what you never seem to find
It ain't what you think you got to read between the lines
'Cause life ain't long, for a young black man
Tryin' to make money doing all he can
Sellin' dope don't ya hope he would go to class 
But the boy makes money and he makes it fast
With the twenties on top and the fifties on the bottom
A flock a top notches, oh yes, we got 'em
It's been a long time since I first got down
But I still keep makin' these funky sounds

Get your money mayne
Get yours

You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good, get it while you can
You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good

You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good, get it while you can
You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good

You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good, get it while you can
You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good

You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good, get it while you can
You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good

Get your money mayne
Get yours
You should be gettin' it

I know you tired of being broke just hanging out
You got a lot a dreams but you can't get out
The first thing you need to do is set yourself some goals
Think positive, everything else is old
And work hard, never stop hustlin'
'Cause they just love to see the black man strugglin'
(So what are you saying Todd?)
It's time to come up, put your dollar bills in the air
He said meet me at the White House and I was there
'Cause I'm one in a million, black man rising
They wanna keep me down but I always surprise 'em
Spend my money in the hood, I know it's all good
And you should do the same I told you peep the game
From Too $hort, you know I'm the man
I lend my brother a hand 'cause I know I can
I keep going and goin' but I'm not the pink bunny
'Stead of beatin' on a drum I never stop thinkin' money
I'm gettin' all I can if you don't you slip
I can't wait to get to heaven just to have a grip
When I was broke, I couldn't afford a meal
But now I'm now rich I can't be fake I gots to keep it real
It's been a long time baby since I first got down
But it still keep making these funky sounds

You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good, get it while you can
You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good

You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good, get it while you can
You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good

You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good, get it while you can
You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good

You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good, get it while you can
You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good 

I earned my respect in the street
The ghetto's been good to me
I'm never gonna to turn my back
The true and living so I got to kick the facts

I earned my respect in the street
The ghetto's been good to me
I'm never gonna to turn my back
The true and living so I got to kick the facts

You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good, get it while you can
You should be gettin' it
Get it while the gettin' is good
