  • Hey, I got a question for the ladies out there
    Yeah, 'cause there's a few things that I would like to know
    Before I fuck with you

    Oh, baby could you learn
    Could you learn to love a troubled man?
    Oh, baby could you learn
    Could you learn to love a troubled man?

    You sure you wanna roll with me? I'm a complicated man
    Live my life close to the edge, it ain't near safe to stand
    I'm Trouble Man, always into something
    Numb to the consequences, guess it's coming if it's coming
    But so much shit they say that I can't do because I'm famous
    Guess I should live in a bubble like these other entertainers
    The danger's so enticing to me, I don't even notice it
    Guess I get away or get arrested before it's over with
    Prison sentence every year, got everybody after me
    Reaper on my heels, I'm just praying he don't catch a G
    Imagine me and you, somewhere happy with a few hundred mills,
    Sill I could go to jail for some years,
    Cause I push it to the limit, the danger's so exciting
    I'm loving every minute, girl this life ain't nothing like it
    And you only live once so as long as I'm alive
    I'll be living on the edge
    Shawty, sure you wanna ride?

    Oh, baby could you learn
    Could you learn to love a troubled man?
    Oh, baby could you learn
    Could you learn to love a troubled man?

    Yeah, hey, hey and they say if the drugs ain't the death of me
    The lifestyle will be!
    Law keep arresting me, sucker wanna kill me
    Still we're in the fast lane, grind break, next speed
    A million dollar sports car, smoking on the best weed.
    Fist fights in night clubs for rap beefs,
    Shootings, retaliations, yeah, it's that deed!
    I guess they just got to catch me when they catch me
    Cause I'm putting it in they life if they attempt to disrespect me
    Especially since I know they say what go around come around
    That's why when we go around I keep a gun around
    The bullshit, there be none around here
    But I got a secret though, I wanna change, I swear!
    But suckers won't let me and feds still sweat me
    So I'm looking for the worst to have you praying for the best
    Think you can help me if they get me?
    Could you handle shit for me?
    Think about it!
    Is your body sure? the answer for me

    Oh, baby (exactly)
    Could you learn?
    (Think you could learn to love a nigga like me?)
    Could you learn to love a troubled man
    (I know what I need) yeah! (and it's worth it, you know)
    Yeah, yeah, baby could you love?
    (Just think about it for a second)
    Could you learn to love a troubled man, yeah?
    (I mean could you find me near?)
    I deserve you!

    Girl, would you give me a number?
    If I had an OK car, not much money
    9 to 5 with a future on me, oh
    Tell me, would you ever fuck with a brother like me?
    (If I did time in my life, time, time in my life
    Time, time in my life)
    Tell me, would you give your sex to me?
    I really want to know
    (If I was fighting in the club, fighting in the club
    Fight, fighting in the club, fighting in the club)
    Hey lady,could you learn
    Learn to love a troubled man?

    Hey, hey, hey baby
    Could you learn (tell me could you learn?)
    Could you learn to love a troubled man?
    (I mean if you knew he was really,
    Really a good hearted person, man
    Do you think you could put up the bullshit to the outside, man?
    I mean if you saw the good qualities within, man
    Could you, could you ignore all the bullshit that they are saying?
    I'm a product of my environment,
    I can only act as good as life allows me to act
    You know what I'm saying so
    What I need is a good influence like you
    You know what I'm saying?
    Think you can find me, Lord? Writer/s: WILLIE HUTCH
