Hook:
I want money, I want chicks/
I want them shoes girl, I want kicks/
We live in a world where evilís reigning supreme/
People are living for people places and things

Verse 1:
Thereís the alarm, wake up and yawn/
Go to the bathroom, wash under your arms/
Grab your coat and say goodbye to your momís/
Your going to school or on your way to the job/
16 just a tat on your arm you smoke weed itís like you back at the farm/
Just got your license your saving up for a car/
16ís cool canít wait Ďtil your 21/
You and your dogs are constantly at the mall/
Looking at the girls that got you dropping youíre jaw/
Having conversations boutí how to get them to fall/
Plus you like sports so youíre running up in them stores/
You got your eyes on a jersey you canít afford/
So you start to sell to get your paper long/
While at the same time youíre watching out for the law/
Wait a minute is this life na man itís got to be more.

Hook:
I want money, I want chicks/
I want them shoes girl, I want kicks/
We live in a world where evilís reigning supreme/
People are living for people places and things

Verse 2:
Girls going wild selling their souls/
With a passion for power lust for control/
Controlling men with the body parts that they show/
Using what the got to get what they want is the goal/
The model themselves after girls in videos/
Their hungry for money and so their digging for gold/
They look for the dude with the hottest car on the road/
15 man and already acting so grown/
Their main concern is whoís painting their toes/
And whoís name on their clothes and whoís dating who knows who/
And so their constantly gossiping on the phone/
And shopping until they fold their rottenness to the bone/
They really donít like the idea of being alone/
They want a man that will love them and take them around the globe/
And pamper their soul but if you ask them if their fully satisfied/
Then the answer is no.

Verse 3:
This ainít strange Solomon did the same/
Money, power and sex were involved with his name/
The richest man to ever live his fame/
If he were living today weíd have pictures up in a frame/
He was a king a celebrity with a train/
At the snap of his fingers bring in a jester to entertain him/
A rolling stone different women up in his chamber/
He had game pimp blood in his veins/
An icon the python of his reign/
Anything that he wanted he got it without strain/
A thousand wives a lot of guys would have gave/
Their right arm to behave like Solomon for a day/
Ahhh! But his glory turned into shame/
He gave up his soul in exchange for everything that he gained/
To satisfy his soul with the stuff he attained/
Break the bonds of boredom and rise above the routine/
Then he discovered that all that he did was vain/
The chasing after the wind and that none of it could sustain him/
He recognized that everything he obtained/
Was futile the dude tried everything you could name/
We ainít no different, matter of fact, we the same/
We got an eternal itch we try to scratch it with things/
But that donít work Ďcause God made human beings/
To be dependent on Him, yo, even when in our teens.
