  • There's a few million angels movin' around me
    I just worship thee, for all he's done for me
    It's a new day, I have been born again
    I've been born again, I've been born again
    In His spirit, and His name
    I'm sanctified!
    Lord I testify
    He's right by my side
    I believe it be
    His word is so clear to me
    Yeah, yeah

    OK all I want is 100 million dollars and a bad bitch
    Plus that paper chasin', it done turn me to a savage
    Groupies in the lobby they just tryna get established
    God, I've been guilty, fornicatin' from my status

    All I wanted was 100 million dollars and a bad bitch
    Plus that paper chasin', it done turn me to a savage
    Groupies in the lobby they just tryna get established
    God, I've been guilty, fornicatin' from my status

    Niggas be lovin' the old Ye, they sayin' the new Ye, that nigga be spazzin'
    But when Ali turn up and be Ali, you can't ever take that nigga back to Cassius
    So you can gon' and make them lies, but I'm so sanctified
    I don't sweat it, wipe my forehead with a handkerchief
    And wash my sins in the blood of Jesus
    People sayin', "Ye we need another Yeezus"
    Lames try to tell me, "Cut the wilin' out, out"
    But who the fuck is you reachin'
    Pass me 30 bottles, champagne procession
    That's that Holy water, sanctified refreshments
    God sent me a message, said I'm too aggressive
    Really!? Me!? Too aggressive!?

    Feel his blessings wash away my sins
    I'm sanctified and, I have been born again
    Now I proclaim, hallowed be thy name, oh

    All I want is 100 million dollars and a bad bitch
    Plus that paper chasin', it done turn me to a savage
    Groupies in the lobby they just tryna get established
    God, I've been guilty, fornicatin' from my status

    Keys to my success, I get new keys and new address
    Bitches that I date don't get degrees but they can dress
    Felatio's amazin', make grilled cheese for you, the best
    Major coke figure, I'm the fresh David Koresh
    Soldiers all in Al-Qaeda, new Mercades for cadets
    Balmain uniform, you know Donda designed the vest
    Double M, that be the Army, better yet the Navy
    Baby seen me in that Wraith, wanna have my baby
    All I wanted was a hundred million dollars and a bad bitch
    Now I want two hundred and menage in my palace
    Walkin' out the jeweler with no mothafuckin' balance
    Somewhere in Jamaica I'm still holdin' on my chalice
    Rims on my Ferrari, my bitch said that I went childish
    'Til I fucked the girl, the girl tweeted that I was stylish
    When we fucked again, she said "That was just some foul shit"
    I walk into the room, you can even hear all the silence

    Feel his blessings wash away my sins
    I'm sanctified and, I have been born again
    Now I proclaim, hallowed be thy name, oh Writer/s: BETTY WRIGHT, DIJON ISAIAH MCFARLANE, KANYE OMARI WEST, KEN LEWIS, MIKE DEAN, SEAN MICHAEL ANDERSON, WILLIAM LEONARD ROBERTS II
