lyrics

Hook
All my life I've been
Trying to make it, no fakin'
And I always said
Haters try to tell me that I wouldn't never win, no
But I did, yeah, I did it
Tell my momma I'mma be somebody
Yeah
Yeah
Tell my momma I'mma be somebody
Now I'm here
Can't nobody tell me nothing, no

Verse 1
No
Tell me nothing, no and tell nothing different
Cause it's the same shit
No sense, just plain ignant
Yet them ears perk up every time I mention
People steady scheming something but I'm bout my business
Yeah, so gone that it's quiet
But I ain't never left
I'm just succeeding in the silence
For those that know of me
Know that I'm private
And those that really know of me
Know they're invited
Never was the type
To follow hype, man
Never had a taste
for fruit unripened
So your labor don't mean shit to me
If you don't learn about your ways
Repeating history
Don't dilute the message
It's a mockery
Sticking up for my beliefs
like it's a robbery
Love to haters might believe
That I will never win
But they forgot one thing
It ain't up to them

Hook
All my life I've been
Trying to make it, no fakin'
And I always said
Haters try to tell me that I wouldn't never win, no
But I did, yeah, I did it
Tell my momma I'mma be somebody
Yeah
Yeah
Tell my momma I'mma be somebody
Now I'm here
Can't nobody tell me nothing, no


Verse 2
1:38
I am I am I am I am
Nothing short of a goddess
Better overstand
Last stand off
Hardly am I undermanned
Heed the call to my duties
With the sleight of hands
Situations I've endured
Most will never know
Cause my life is path
That they aren't meant to go, on
And so on and so forth
No Porsche or horse
I wanna help humanity's divorce
All about the love
And how to give it back
But try to run tell that
To megalomaniacs
Give'em something to pick up
They'd rather pick at
Guess it ain't for everyone
Some don't believe in that
I know the infiltrators
Gwan try to figure me out
When in doubt,
No fear of change of plans, I reroute
I've sacrificed so much
Just to help
But the help helps more
Once you help your self

Hook
All my life I've been
(All my life I've been)
Trying to make it, no fakin'
And I always said
Haters try to tell me that I would never win
No (No)
But I did it,(yeah) yeah, I did it
Tell my mama I'mma be somebody
(Be somebody)
Yeah (Yeah?)
Yeah
Tell my momma I'mma be somebody (Ma)
Now I'm here
Can't nobody tell me nothing, no

Outro
I'm more than ready
I am a more than capable of it
But I've allowed all these distractions keep me away from it
Or was it all just a part of the making
How to build a better defense
On what is sacred

[Repeat]
