  • Why so sad?
    Walking around with them blue faces
    She said I’m down on my luck
    And it’s something I gotta have
    Blue faces
    I hit the bank today and told them color me bad
    Blue faces
    Get that new money, and it’s breaking me down honey

    Two tears in the bucket I cry with you
    But I could never lie with you
    I could never afford not to afford
    I could never put my plans to the side with you
    I could never see a red light
    Like a deer with a headlight
    I freeze up when I re-up
    See I barely have patience
    And you're relating
    Only the moment to complete us
    Why you hate to work for it?
    The reason I never went to work for it
    See a nine to five was so jive turkey
    But when Thanksgiving came that check didn’t hurt me
    You plead the fifth
    I read the fifth amendment
    We both criminals with bad intentions
    They say time heals all
    But if I can shortcut
    My success, Corvettes by tomorrow

    Why so sad?
    Walking around with them blue faces
    She said I’m down on my luck
    And it’s something I gotta have
    Blue faces
    I hit the bank today and told them color me bad
    Blue faces
    Get that new money, and it’s breaking me down honey

    My home girl got a credit card scam
    She got a scholarship to college but she don’t give a damn
    Intuition she got a broke bitch wishin'
    She tell me this on the phone with the noodles in the pan
    I know you, woman, I console you, woman
    You feel like the universe owes you, woman
    Oh the anticipation, of hoping you could make it
    Bitches don't prosper chasing education
    But you're talented, and can't handle it
    And your homegirls can't be your manager
    365 times four, plus more
    If yan't get it right, tell me, do you got the stamina?
    But shit, ain't no money like fast money
    Even today I'm considered a crash dummy
    A rapper chasing stardom, how can I fast forward?
    My accolades better than all them

    Why so sad?
    Walking around with them blue faces
    She said I’m down on my luck
    And it’s something I gotta have
    Blue faces
    I hit the bank today and told them color me bad
    Blue faces
    Get that new money, and it’s breaking me down honey

    I wrote this song looking at a broke home baby
    You know the poverty stricken the little broke boy and babies
    Somebody yell "Kendrick American, they sho’ is crazy"
    And I said “why?”
    Then he looked me in the eye, and said "nigga you fucked up"
    You’re banking on good luck, you wishing for miracles
    You never been through shit, you’re crying hysterical
    You settle for everything, complain about everything
    You say you sold crack, my world amphetamine
    Your projects ain’t shit, I live in a hut bitch
    I'm living to keep warm, you living to pay rent
    I paid my way through, praying to Allah
    You played your way through, by living in sci-fi
    Bullshitting yourself, you talking to strangers
    Same thing goes for the ones you came with
    When y'all came on the boat looking for hope
    And all you can say is that you’re looking for dope
    These days ain’t no compromise
    And your pain ain’t mines half the time
    A brand new excuse ain’t shit to me
    Bitch I made my moves, with shackled feet
    Cape Town

    In today's day and age we practice the self pity of taking the easy way out
    You wait on them, him and her
    But when a blessing takes long, that's when you go wrong
    You selfish motherfucker

    Why so sad?
    Walking around with them blue faces
    She said I’m down on my luck
    And it’s something I gotta have
    Blue faces
    I hit the bank today and told them color me bad
    Blue faces
    Get that new money, and it’s breaking me down honey

    Pimp pimp hooray
