    Don't save her, she don't wanna be saved
    Don't save her, she don't wanna be saved
    Fool me one time shame on you
    Fool me twice, can't put the blame on you
    Fool me three times, f*ck the peace signs
    Load the chopper, let it rain on you

    Best Lyrics:

    It's beauty in the struggle, ugliness in the success
    Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress
    I grew up in the city and know sometimes we had less
    Compared to some of my n***** down the block, man, we were blessed
    And life can't be no fairytale, no once upon a time
    But I be goddamned if a n**** don't be tryin'
    So tell me, mama please, why you be drinking all the time?
    Does all the pain he brought you still linger in your mind?

    Best Lyrics:

    Girl your daddy was a real n****, not 'cos he was cold
    Not because he was the first to get some p*ssy twelve years old
    Not because he used to come through in the Caddy on some vogues
    Not because he went from bagging up them grams to serving O's
    Nah your daddy was a real n****, not 'cos he was hard
    Not because he lived a life of crime and sat behind some bars
    Not because he screamed f*ck the law, although that was true
    Your daddy was a real n**** 'cuz he loved you"
    For your eyes only

    Now I'm sure you done head about me
    A black star, Mos Def, Kweli
    Good so them bad hoes try me, they try me
    This is Martin Luther King in the club, getting dubs
    With a bad b*tch in his ear, sayin' that she down for whatever
    In the back of his mind is Coretta
    And she knows, she knows
    And I know she knows, and I know she knows

    Well, this has got to be the longest crush ever
    If I ever get to f*ck, it'd be the longest b*st ever
    Love is a drug, like the strongest stuff ever and
    F*ck it, I'm on one, you feel me?
    She on a power trip, she got me where she want a n****
    Wife'ing in the club, man, my homies gon' disown a n****
    Like, give me 20 dollars, dollars
    Ass stupid, how you get to college, college?

    N***** been countin' me out
    I'm countin' my bullets, I'm loadin' my clips
    I'm writin' down names, I'm makin' a list
    I'm checkin' it twice and I'm gettin' 'em hit
    The real ones been dyin', the fake ones is lit
    The game is off balance, I'm back on my sh*t
    The Bentley is dirty, my sneakers is dirty
    But that's how I like it, you all on my d*ck
