This song goes out To all the people out there that be running they mouth And they don't know what The hell they sayin' Shut up!
Now that I've got my voice back let me start off sayin' that I appreciate the fans around the world that had my back And I just wanna thank God upstairs for keeping His hands on me And keeping all the doctors focused through my surgery Now, there's a couple of things I gotta get off my chest Some serious issues that I must address so Well, let's just get right to people said that I was done Said there was no way this time he's gonna over come And even before the doctors was done and I could awake A tsunami of rumors had come to wipe my career away After twenty two years of a blessed career Had me lying in my hospital bed crying mad tears ooh But just as I have many people hatin' me Had so many people loving me And let's not forget the hood around the world covering me And to everybody that be calling me Telling what they've been sayin' about me Bringin' all of this negative s*** and Y'all the ones I ain't f***ing with It's time for me to evaluate the people that I let up in my space Can I get a witness for all of this When people all up in your business
Tell 'em shut up, tell 'em shut up Tell 'em shut up! I'm talking to you Tell 'em all shut up, Tell 'em all shut up Tell 'em all shut up And tell 'em, I'm talking to you
He's washed up, he's lost it He ain't gotta no more Well I'm here to tell you today boy you haters are so slow And it saddens me to know Some of y'all want me to go away Well when it's time for me to go My God is gonna orchestrate Until then I will accept the stones Pray and try to get along but sometimes it's so hard for me to be strong See I got kids and I'm tryin' to love 'em So many things that I'm tryin' to juggle But I never thought this music would become my struggle oh The news said I lost my house my own people put me down And my friends no longer around no But you see deep underneath the surface I feel something's working in my behalf a victory is near yeah See my future ain't my past it's not the end of the hour gla** Who said it would not last Fans sick they a**
Tell 'em shut up, shut up, shut up Tell 'em shut up, I'm talking I'm talking to you, shut ooh, shut up, shut up, shut up y'all Shut up, if you talking 'bout me I'm talking to you
Now seriously after all these hits and melodies and memories You compare me to someone else O-M-G Now no offense to the other artist but come on dawg Let's be honest how many babies been made off me O-M-G Seriously you gonna act like that Sit there like it ain't no truth to that Looking at me like I ain't talking stats O-M-G Every boy, every girl, every child around the world From the 90's up until today was made off me
Shut up, shut up, shut up Shut up, shut up, shut up, I'm talking to you Shut up, shut up, shut up Shut up, 'bout my life, shut up, 'bout my life, I'm talking to you (If the shoe fits, go ahead and wear it) Shut up, shut up, shut up Shut up, shut up, shut up, I'm talking to you Shut up (Told ya's just shut up, just shut up, just shut up) shut up, shut up I'm talking to you Shut up, shut up, shut up, I'm talking to you Shut up, shut up, shut up

Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
