MONEY MATTERS Your world my world same shit different day Different shit same toilet paper gotta circulate Just to keep the water flushing stove hot fridge cold Cabinets full. Clothes clean quarters for the wash and fold Kids grow bigger so the gear grows tight and old Inflation triggers so the prices grow go figure Bills like William til your will’s like debt that Lives longer than you. Collectors never forget and your Said assets are your child’s regrets Diamond Baguets get got for forclosure threats. Those are Grown folks fears swinging over ya head. Better That than the water you continue to tread. At a Job you continue to dread. Or better yet, they say Love your work and never work a day in your life. They say Be your own boss and your doing it right. I say Sheeeeeit whatever gets you through it at night. Because Doctors Dealers even emcees Ponder on all life’s complexities. But Can’t see the forest for the evergreen trees. So They collect leaves. But when collects leave Doctors dealers even emcees Roll up there sleeves and put in work. You gotta Hold on tight just to climb that ladder. With your Mind on your money. And money, money matters Imma live forever now how about you Wanna live better now fuck a Gucci sweater now Gotta save the cheddar now money cash bread dough Rise like yeast whether you fast or feast whoever saves most needs the least and vice versa No time in your nice watch no cash in your nice purse Why you putting thangs over self and health. put your Loot back in your pocket I’m talkin bout wealth Money Grip. Since you working for your money get it in. Make it Do what it do cause you aint fina win unil your Money work for you. And please know that Old money Bitch slaps new with the gold that it used to Be backed by now are we that fly. My people Mighta mined the gold but that gold aint mine . So I would Say nice try better luck next time. You want a Long dollar? Maybe then invest that dime because Doctors Dealers even emcees Ponder on all life’s complexities. But Can’t see the forest for the evergreen trees. So They collect leaves. But when collects leave Doctors dealers even emcees Roll up there sleeves and put in work. You gotta Hold on tight just to climb that ladder. With your Mind on your money. And money, money matters Lemon to a lime a lime to a lemon You fucking with my money I’mma turn into a gremlin A lime to a lemon a lemon to a lime the same Way time is money… money is time. Lemon to a lime a lime to a lemon If you wasting you money that’s the start of your ending A lime to a lemon a lemon to a lime the same Way time is money… money is time. Now you could Turn bread to fish and water to wine. But you Can’t turn the sun dial from 10 to 9. You can Throw on a throw back and press rewind but it’ll Never be the same sunshine. Looking up long Enough you might just go blind. These aint just dope Rhymes. These are facts I don’t just opine. Now if your Past keep you from presently planning for the future you a Pawn that’ll never see the 8th rank line. I’m trying to Raise two queens and protect a king since a Rook like Bishop I been doing my thing aye Night. But since every game ceases I’d rather be the Hand that hits clocks and moves pieces chorus
