Mama put me out at only fourteen
So I start sellin crack cocaine and codeine
Time to stack some paper, I gotta do it quick
Thinkin I'm a juvenile but they don't know who they messin wit, yeah

My mama's only son
But I live every day like its my muthafuckin last one

Every nigga and they mama askin why
But I'm in the game live by the game and in the game I'm a die

And if I die or should I say if I go
Bury me in Hiram Clarke next to the Come N Go

Cause tomorrow ain't promised to me
The only thing promised to a playa is the penitentiary

So I'm a take care of my business on the smooth tip
Watch my back sellin crack and pack two clips

And when ya think about that you say "it'll be on"
It's a trip you're here today but the next day you're gone

One day you're here, baby
And then you're gone (repeat)


[Bun B]
This world we livin in man it ain't nothing but drama
Everyone wanna harm ya in New York niggas gettin shot for bombers
Now they got your life in the palm of they hand like California
Niggas with dubs of hydroponic marijuana

Gangbangin got the ghetto hotter than a sauna
Down in Orange my nigga Pots died on the corner
Behind a funky-ass dice game

I saw him once before he died wish it was twice man
I remember being eight deep off in Chucky crib
Lettin us act bad not giving a fuck what we did
When we lost him I knew the world was comin to the end
And I had to quit lettin that devil push me to a sin

My brother been in the pen for damn near ten
But now it look like when he come out man I'm goin in
So shit I walk around with my mind blown in my own fuckin zone
Cause one day you're here, the next day you're gone


One day you're here, baby
And then you're gone (repeat)

[Pimp C]
I'm up early cause ain't enough light in the daytime
Smoke two sweets and sold these chickens 'fo the clock strike nine
Big nut holder my boulders smolder on the PA pipes
AK loader as I get swallowed under city lights
Niggas be lookin shife so I look shife back
Can't show no weakness with these bitches get your life jacked
Man it's a trip where I stay especially for me
Them bitches trying to lock me up for the whole century
They gave my nigga Donny 40, Dante 19
I wish that we could smoke again and take a tight lean
My world a trip you can ask Bun B bitch I ain't no liar
My man BoBo just lost his baby in a house fire

And when I got on my knees that night to pray
I asked God, "Why You let these killas live and take my homeboy's son away?"
Man if you got kids, show em you love em cause God just might call em home
Cause one day they're here and baby the next day they're gone
