note: this song will probably make more sense if you know that "ends" is slang for "money" (roughly). See Ebonics Language Lesson for more usage...

"Everything must change."

Some people will rob their mother, for the ends
Rat snitch on one another, for the ends
Sometimes kids get murdered, for the ends
So before we go any further, I want my ends

I knew this cat named Darrell, he didn't have a dollar
He was Harvard material, Ivy League scholar
Had a Ph.D., had an M.B.A.
But now he's waiting tables 'cause there's rent to pay
Companies downsizing, inflation's rising
Can't find a job, he's feeling kind of stressed
Doesn't even feel the effects when he says
Forgot to count how many times he been blessed
So he falls off track, starts smoking the crack
And once it hits his brain, it starts to chain react
Sells the shirt off his back, shoes off his feet
He's losing all his teeth, now he's out in the street
And all of sudden he's like Jesse James
Trying to stick up kids for their watches and chains
But he's from business school, and he's nervous with the tool
So he ends up on his back in a bloody pool

I knew this chick named Sally, she had a nice strut
And everywhere that I went, she was up in the cut

Brand name wearing, champagne waving
Jewels around the neck, lifestyle she's craving
Ain't no saving, she's doing enough spending
If you do the lending, she'll do the bending
Straight machine vending, it's money for take
Shopping sprees get her on her knees
And if you hit her with keys to your crib, you acting funny
Come home one day, find her counting out your money
From The Wetlands, all the way to The Apollo
If you're broke she's spitting, and if you're rich she might swallow

"Get the money"

I knew these two homeboys, that made a lot of noise
Making money on the block, kids was on their jock
They was tougher than leather like Reverend Run
, they was toting guns
Holding weight, going out of state
Stacking mad chips, and pushing phat whips
Fly jewels and clothes, and got no job
And then one disappeared, and one got robbed

For the ...
