Tears Of Joy

Album: Teflon Don (2010)
  • Smoking the best spliff in a brand new Benz
    No I.D. on the track let the story begin, begin
    Lookin' in the mirror but I don't see much
    Staring in the streets so I don't sleep much
    Watching the snakes so they don't creep up
    But the way I'm gettin' dis money niggas cant keep up
    You niggas can't keep up
    Niggas got beef but it cant be much
    I'm still walking through the crowds like I cant be touched
    Top back all black Gretzky puck
    Ice skater lil' later might let me fuck
    Damn, she might let me fuck
    Last night I cried tears of joy
    What did I do to deserve this
    Vacheron on my wrist a year ago
    I didn't even know the bitches exist
    Quarter milli for the muthafucka'
    No insurance on a muthafucka'
    Ain't life a bitch, but you gotta keep her wet
    Keys open doors so I gotta keep a set
    Everybody knows I'm a a lot of people's threats
    Biggie smalls in the flesh livin' life after my death
    Yesterday I read my horoscope
    Tell me lord will I be poor and broke
    Tell me lord will I be dealing dope
    I wanna take my momma to the Poconos
    But only lords knows

    To all the love ones I leave behind
    At least they can't see me cry
    And I ask when someone wants to be me, why?
    Thought having everything would ease my mind
    If you could read my mind
    My god, I'm scarred
    I have tattooed tears of joy

    Last night I cried tears of joy
    What did I do to deserve this
    Young rich muthafucka' still uneducated but dammit a nigga made it
    God damn a nigga made it
    Crib bigger than a church Lord know I'm blessed
    Five different lawyers Lord know I'm stressed
    A punch in the face get you 300 K
    Ask Blair Knight he back makin' minimum wage
    Another victim of my criminal ways
    I wanna walk in the image of Christ
    But that bitch Vivica nice
    And I'm still swimming in ice
    I'm just living my life
    I'm just living my life
    Lease a Lamborghini for your pussy rate
    Life is just a pussy race
    Snatch a bitch take her back to your place
    Next mournin' I can tell you how the pussy taste
    I got expensive taste

    Goodbye
    To all the love ones I leave behind
    At least they cant see me cry
    And I ask when someone wants to be me, why?
    Thought having everything would ease my mind
    If you could read my mind
    My god I'm scarred
    I have tattooed tears of joy

    Last night I cried tears of joy
    What did we do to deserve this
    Not to dwell on the the past
    But to keep it real I gotta represent for Emmitt Till
    All the dead souls in the field
    Lookin' at my Rolly it's about that time
    White man got a problem wit' mine
    And we suppose to be shy
    The revolutions televised
    Bobby still on the rise

    Goodbye
    To all the love ones I leave behind
    At least they cant see me cry
    And I ask when someone wants to be me, why?
    Thought having everything would ease my mind
    If you could read my mind
    My god I'm scarred
    I have tattooed tears of joy Writer/s: WILLIAM ROBERTS, WILLIE HUTCH, ERNEST WILSON, THOMAS CALLAWAY
