  • If I ever took a loss, I learned a lesson
    I won't ever think I'm better than the next man
    I've been down before the come up, I ain't stressin'
    Baby I'm too busy countin' all these blessings

    Yah, yah, yah
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Line 'em up, line 'em up, line 'em up
    Swear the sun shinin' on me in my huddle
    No matter the trouble surroundin' us
    They don't see that it's a lot of us
    Everybody move anonymous
    Won't take that credit, I know where we get it
    Them blessings be comin' from God above
    I was doin' all kinda bad
    Where the choir at? Tell 'em I need a verse
    Hit the pew and tell God He's first
    Hit the studio to body a verse
    I remember pushin' mama's little white Hyundai with no gas money
    I just bought a car, cash money
    I ain't even tryna brag on it
    I just tell it how it really is
    I ain't trippin', they ain't feelin' this
    I ain't sayin' I deserve nothin'
    I'm just tryna talk about the benefits
    I've been punchin' in the clock
    Tryna keep the kitchen stocked
    Man it's a blessin' 'cause we ain't ever had a lot
    But all we need is all we got

    If I ever took a loss, I learned a lesson
    I won't ever think I'm better than the next man
    I've been down before the come up, I ain't stressin'
    Baby I'm too busy countin' all these blessings, blessings

    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Blessings
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Blessings

    I put my mama in the crib, said, "Stop stressin'"
    I put my girl in a brand new diamond necklace
    She said she need more of my love and affection
    'Cause lately I've been workin' harder than ever
    She said, "Baby, you a boss, baby, clear your schedule
    Dolla you a boss, let's do somethin' special
    Take me on a PJ, we should go to Mexico
    I've been down for you boy, since when the money was low"
    Anything for my bae 'cause she a blessing
    If you woke up this morning it's a blessing

    If I ever took a loss, I learned a lesson
    I won't ever think I'm better than the next man
    I've been down before the come up, I ain't stressin'
    Baby I'm too busy countin' all these blessings, blessings

    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Blessings
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Blessings

    I took so many losses
    Coulda lost it
    Left 'em leakin' like a faucet
    Almost cost me
    Everything that I got, all of my fam
    Part of the plan
    I was eatin' fried bologna out of the pan
    Y'all don't understand
    I was tryna get it
    I'm in that studio tryna keep it pushin'
    Patty pies, boy I kept 'em cookin'
    All I needed was the Mary Mary
    But the God in me was havin' commentary, woo!
    I got angels all around like Anita Baker
    Blessings fallin' in line, guess I need a taper
    And every loss is a lesson
    Tell my haters I confess
    Treat 'em like the green bubbles on the iPhone
    I probably never read the message

    If I ever took a loss, I learned a lesson
    I won't ever think I'm better than the next man
    I've been down before the come up, I ain't stressin'
    Baby I'm too busy countin' all these blessings, blessings

    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Blessings
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
    Count it up, count it up, count it up
