lyrics

My mooooooney
I just wanna make my money
Time is Floo$
Don’t waste my time!
I don’t really think it’s funny
Being broke — Nope
I ain’t gonna lie
That’s why I hustle haaaaaard
That’s just my way
That’s why I thank Gooooood
Every time that I get paid.

Nothing like money gives a man that boost
7alab Pepper - Hot Stepper
Chest out like like a rooster cock
Floo$ to drop
No hurry
Only worry which new blue shoes to cop
Refuse to stop
Shopping sprees
Unless it’s to cop some ...
Tropical Breeze calling — Jeez!
Wallet so big that it pops the wrist
Of the poor old cop tryina stop & frisk
Pig Please.
Watch the moccasins
Money talk so much need lozenges
Wasn’t that a great line?
I think it was...
Never negative vibes
Be positive
As long as it’s halal to the Prophets then
It ain’t rocket science
A jackass can do it
I move product & I get compensated through it
Hell ... Not much to it really
But consistency is key
Slow & steady every time
Brick by brick that’s by design
Build till they can not stop the grind
They may try to knock the hustle
But when they’re that far behind
They can not stop the grind.
No No, they can not stop the grind.

I just wanna make my money
Time is Floo$
Don’t waste my time
I don’t really think it’s funny
Being broke — Nope
I ain’t gonna lie
That’s why I hustle haaaaaard
That’s just my way
That’s why I thank Gooooood
Every time that I get paid.

I am envious of the asinine
Who careth not for this cash of mine
This bulging pocket
This stash of mine
That don’t fit in my wagon
It lags behind
So many zeros it boggles the mind
That’s why my accountants had to resign
You probably make less from the bookings you get
Than the bags from the shows that I’ve had to decline
Nevertheless...
I digress & confess that this bragging is petty
I’m rather refined
What I earn in money
Turns into respect & I’m rather inclined
To spending on others
Contented with less
Haters gonna hate
Zatars gonna Zeit (Thyme & Olive Oil)
& What is the latter but a bunch of thyme?
Time ... Time spent on the grind
Never been wasted
Though it’s lost on a donkey
Chasing a carrot that it’s never tasted
Niyalak ya 7mar (I envy you Donkey)
Ma biddak dollar (You don’t care for a dollar)
Ma bit fakker bi shi abadan
Ismo Ismo floo$ (Nor do you worry about anything called Money)

I just wanna make my money
Time is Floo$
Don’t waste my time
I don’t really think it’s funny
Being broke — Nope
I ain’t gonna lie
That’s why I hustle haaaaaard
That’s just my way
That’s why I thank Goooooood
Every time that I get paid.
