[Verse 1]
I live at home still
Not paying phone bills
Hydro, or rent
And my mom makes most meals

So it's so ill
I don't need no scrill

Only cash for gas
When I borrow my folks' wheels

(But you can't drive)
Whatever our van died

(Get a good bike)
Who I look like, that Lance guy?
I ain't pushing no banana seat
Looking like some 8-year-old kid on your grandma's street

You can go ahead and call me lazy
I just retired real young, y'all; call me Jay-Z
Or maybe I just hate these crappy jobs
Call me crazy, but I refuse to work 'em, man
It's miserable
Can't do it 'less it's due to circumstance
And I need the cash to feed my astronomical appetite

But for the time being, y'all, I'll sacrifice
And have a life minus a couple of luxuries
Just cutting my budget schemes

And getting some stuff for free
Like, why's a brother need a dentist?
It's expensive and my gums'll bleed
They do everytime when he scrubs 'em clean

And every year they try to bump the fee
Plus he'll probably recommend braces (There you go)
That's another G!

Well thanks a lot, doc, but listen
I can brush my teeth all on my own
So you ain't gonna hustle me

So that takes care of the dental plan
Now here's a potential scam:
Getting my toes crushed by a rental van

Then if I
Sued the driver and the rental guy's
Enterprise or whatever
I bet they would settled nice
Court adjourned, now I just gotta
Pay for the law forms

That's easy--spend two weeks eating popcorn
Like students do, 'cept I'm grown and it's not dorms

So it's a bit more pathetic; ok, a lot more
But what y'all gotta mock for?
Whats wrong with my Mach 3?

Y'all gotta be macho and mock more?
Well not me, and I do not need to change blades
Its all my own hair I shave
Chin back face legs

And the rashes rarely last more than 8 days
Usually so its cool with me - I can save great

And hygene ain't no reason to buy things
Like soap or visine or getting clothes dry cleaned
I don't throw away dough on no facials

Yeah I make rolls of my pennies
I even pay folks
In clubs out this case full of pesos I lug
Get em exchanged? Nope, I'm waiting til the rate's low

Don't hate yo
Just cuz yall wasteful
Yall wanna make your bruh the scapegoat
Its bugged...

Its all nuance
Use your head - why get a bed and couch
When you can slouch on a futon instead

If you got a little bread like croutons
Download them new songs and spread them coupons


[Verse 2]
If you happy when you save 2 dollars a week
You steal your neighbors empty bottles
And keep all your receipts and only treat your girl
Yearly to McDonalds to eat

Don't be ashamed, pop your collars mang - holler at me!
If yall are this cheap
This is for acknowledging peeps

That gotta track every dime usin columns and sheets
If you strip search the mall for the bargain to beat
Like everyday youre just a penny safe from starved in the street
Keep carvin a niche
I'm started in a jar for the wee
Little shaddies still to come for their college degree
Yo I figure starting early on the market is key
I plan on havin smart daughters all Harvard md

And regardless we gon never put a car on the streets
'less them gas prices lower and the parking is free

And no parka for me
Not even gloves scarves or a fleece
I may freeze but I'll keep savin marvellously... holla!
