  • Bad Boy,

    (We ain't gon' stop) Now with Sean on the hot track, melt like it's hot wax
    Put it out, all the stores, bet you could shop that (that's right)
    Leave a nigga with a hot hat, fronting like Bad Boy ain't got tracks (nigga stop that)

    There's no guy slicker than this young fly nigga
    Nickel-nine nigga, floss you die quicker (uh-huh)
    This fed time outta town pie flipper
    Turn Cristal into a Crooked I sipper

    Everybody want to be fast, see the cash
    Fuck around they weak staff, get a heat rash
    Anything in Bad Boy way we smash (we smash)
    Hundred G stash, push a bulletproof E-Class (hehe)

    I'm through with bein a player and a baller
    Just want me one bad bitch so I can spoil her
    Mase want to be the one you respect, even when you're vexed
    Rock Versace silks over spilled brunette
    Got green never seen so you suck my jewels
    Clutch my uz', anything I touch I bruise
    Puff make his own laws, nigga fuck your rules (that's right)
    Goodfellas, you know you can't touch us dudes

    Don't push us, cause we're close to the, edge
    We're tryin', not to lose our heads, a-hah hah hah hah

    Broken glass everywhere
    If it ain't about the money, Puff, I just don't care (that's right)
    I'm that Goodfella fly guy, sometimes wiseguys
    Spend time in H-A-W-A-I-I
    (Mase can you please stop smoking lah lah?)
    Puff why try? I'm a thug, I'ma die high
    I be out in Jersey, puffin' Hershey
    Brothers ain't worthy to rock my derby

    Though I'm never drugged, I'm the venom in the club, G
    Though I know the thug be wantin' to slug me (uh-huh)
    Could it be I move as smoove as Bugsy? (yeah)
    Or be at the bar with too much bubbly? (c'mon)
    Yo I think it must be the girls want to lust me
    Or is it simply the girls just love me
    Brothers wanna, rock the Rolls, rock my clothes
    Rock my ice, pull out glocks, stop my life (uh)
    I'm like, "Damn, how these niggas got they trust?
    Used to be my man, how you gonna plot on my wife?"
    Do you think you snake me, cause they hate me?
    Or he got his Ph.D; Player Hater's Degree? (Ahaha!)

    Can't nobody take my pride, can't nobody hold me down oh no
    I got to keep on movin'

    Quit that! (uh-huh) You a big cat? (yeah)
    Where your chicks at? (where) Where your whips at? (where dey at?)
    Wherever you get stacks, I'ma fix that
    Everything that's big dreams, I did that (that's right)
    Don't knock me cause you're boring
    I'm record sales soaring straight touring
    Simply a lot of men be wantin' to hear me
    'Cause their words just don't offend me (uh-uh, uh-uh)
    We spend cheese, in the West Indies
    Then come home to plenty cream Bentleys (hehe)
    You name it, I could claim it
    Young, black, and famous, with money hangin' out the anus
    And when you need a hit, who you go and get? (who?)
    Bet against us? (Not a sure bet)
    We make hits that'll rearrange your whole set (that's right)
    And got a Benz that I ain't even drove yet

    Don't push us, cause we're close to the, edge
    We're tryin', not to, lose our heads, a-hah-hah-hah-hah

    I get the feeling sometimes, that make me wonder
    Why you want to take us under (Why you want to take us under)
    I get the feeling sometimes, that make me wonder
    Why you want to take us under (Why you want to take us under)

    Can't nobody take my pride, can't nobody hold me down oh no
    I got to keep on movin'

    Can't nobody take my pride, can't nobody hold me down oh no
    I got to keep on movin'

    Can't nobody take my pride, can't nobody hold me down oh no
    I got to keep on movin'

    Can't nobody take my pride, can't nobody hold me down oh no
    I got to keep on movin'
