I'm Gonna Crawl

Live and learn
Life is a lesson
And I’m gonna teach it

First I’m gonna crawl, then I’m gonna walk
Then I’m gonna stand, then I’m gonna talk
But I gotta learn in order to teach
Then I gotta burn in order to reach
My niggaz

Yo, I see what I see day by day
Hoping that the Lord will pave my way (What!)
Have I been forgotten? Have I forsaken?
Or maybe I’m just wrong with the moves that I’ve been makin’
Hatin’ others cuz they hate me over envy
They wanna send me, when we use to be friendly
Think I started off on top with two platinum albums?
Naw dog, I started off from the block
I just did shit and did shit (Ugh!)
Niggaz always knew I was down to hit shit so I stayed rich (What!)
Played with shit but it wasn’t a game; first time locked down (Ugh!)
It wasn’t the same, the whole fuckin’ world, couldn’t quite close the steel
Niggaz get split for real, miss some good meal (Damn)
Called nobody but don’t nobody care
They got my back against the walls
Fuck it, I’m just here

First I’m gonna crawl, then I’m gonna walk
Then I’m gonna stand, then I’m gonna talk
But I gotta learn in order to teach
Then I gotta burn in order to reach

First I’m gonna crawl, then I’m gonna walk
Then I’m gonna stand, then I’m gonna talk
But I gotta learn in order to teach
Then I gotta burn in order to reach
My niggaz

Dog, it’s like this: when the fog is tight thick, a nigga might flip
And a nigga write quick, but I stay focus to what’s important (What’s that?)
Supportin’ my family, fucking with my dogs and record
According to the man upstairs, we all got our own problems
So you- stop worrying about bail (Aight)
Learned a long time ago, look away and niggaz will leave you
I hear no, speak no, see no evil
All I can do is teach you what I know, how I flow
how I get down, where I go (What!)
Maybe what I been through or send you somewhere I’ve been (Where?)
Dreams go out the window, I love my people, all of my people (Ugh)
And God gonna keep me callin’ my people (Ugh)
You gots to live life to the fullest
Ain’t always about the size of the gun so time is the bullet

First I’m gonna crawl, then I’m gonna walk
Then I’m gonna stand, then I’m gonna talk
But I gotta learn in order to teach
Then I gotta burn in order to reach

First I’m gonna crawl, then I’m gonna walk
Then I’m gonna stand, then I’m gonna talk
But I gotta learn in order to teach
Then I gotta burn in order to reach
My niggaz

Everyday we live and learn, take it step-by-step
We create our own path until there’s no life left
I hold my death (Ugh) all for as long as I can
Know my man (What!) plottin’ with a chrome in his hand
Holdin’ me back, niggaz gettin’ shady over money
MY NIGGA! Pull out the 380 over money (Damn)
Really over money, can’t do without it
I got other shit to deal with, I’m like forget about it
It’s when I don’t know with much tease that comes first
because it comes with the thirst of a nigga that’s had it the worst
It’s like a curse that should be lifted
He was there when he lifted, got a call and he shifted
Once he felt that he was gifted
Got to kick it the hardest and I hope you got it
It was there from the start, I just hope you spot it
Cuz it’s my blood on paper, my soul on paper
It’s worse to live by will leave a hole in the paper

First I’m gonna crawl, then I’m gonna walk
Then I’m gonna stand, then I’m gonna talk
But I gotta learn in order to teach
Then I gotta burn in order to reach

First I’m gonna crawl, then I’m gonna walk
Then I’m gonna stand, then I’m gonna talk
But I gotta learn in order to teach
Then I gotta burn in order to reach
My niggaz
