"Sweet"


[Verse 1:]
Sweet, And still there's pain
If I would have grew up
To be a doctor
My nephews would have grew up to do the same
But since I grew
Up through the game and my influence is the same
And my therapy is music
They ask if you ashamed
And though I wish I could separate
The two things,
I can not
So my answer to you remains
I can walk down the hall of mirrors
In Versailles
And be so satisfied when I look at my self in the eyes
No shames, No sir
Just Big Boats and tearing the cost up
Tight
Coup like I'm wearin the roadster
For Any coup I'm bear hugging the Holster

[Chorus:]
Hov alright, alright and that may not be
What you call perfect
But, but it's my life
The life, The life, The life
Once again it's
The life

[Verse 2:]
So I make no apologies
Crooked policies, so a G a nigga gotta be
We playing our property, no monopoly
So I'll pass go and let my
Nephew follow me
They say the child shall lead
So I take it far as I can
We then shall see
Shall we dance we dance with the devil
For a beat
I pray
To God I ain't
Got two left feet feet
Do the hustle
Put keys in the street
Then
I'm ballroom dancing
Ke-ke'ing in the suite
Sweet . BB's on the feet
Tv's in
The seat
Enemies on the creeps
It's so corrupt
Soak it, it's a lesson
Never fuck up
One day you're up, next day you down long as u stay the
Same
It will come back around

[Chorus:]
Hov alright, alright and that may not be
What you call perfect
But, but it's my life
The life, The life, The life
Once again it's
The life

[Verse 3:]
I'm even better
I'm eating better
Best thing about it is
My niggas eatin
Together
With each endeavor
We reaching levels
Niggas ain't
Seen in like forever
I'm Hyman Roth I make all my partners rich
I can
Vouch for you
If you ain't a part of this
So pardon me as I pave my wrist
As I parlay chips
Hov
Alright, Alright
AMERICAN GANGSTER, GANGSTER
Business like I'm white
But I'm not I'm just bright
So fly with no fear of the
Flight
So if ya'll hear my plight
And if you think you can make it
This far
Without a fight
Couple mistakes here and there
Not always right
But I'm always
Real
That's how I sleep at night

[Chorus:]
Hov alright, alright and that may not be
What you call perfect
But, but it's my life
The life, The life, The life
Once again it's
The life
