    maybe
    if i didn't love money so much
    the touch
    u kno they say
    bout money
    money is evil
    if i think bout it
    too much
    am i dwellin in sin

    all the time
    my mind
    is trapped by a grind
    i'll have a fat knot
    but i'll lose my strings
    these things
    i don't wanna lose
    but to be broke with strings

    dat's a puppet man
    i played the strings to win
    but ain't no strings attached
    when i slip thru cracks
    my back
    is where i lay
    my back

    cuz i'm doomed if trouble creep
    a friend ain't what i need this time
    unless he dropped dimes
    but i'm evil
    jus tryin to get paper
    paid
    is how i wanna be

    what's so evil about wanting to pay for daily life
    taking care to not have strife
    with bill collectors
    tax collectors
    and child welfare protectors
    if the world is what you've made your wife
    you have to give the devil what's due
    he wants a little attention too
    and that would make you evil through and through
    but if money for you
    is simply the way you make it through
    and if love of money is not the root
    then I would almost call you holy
    if grinding keeps you from living lowly
    then keep rolling daddy
    make that pocket a fatty
    find you a woman
    who will have your back, front and side
    and who will no matter what ride
    even if your grind ain't legit
    according to government guidelines



    in other words, I don't think you are evil at all....holla, Nicole

    They say money isn't everything, true, but life is hell on earth when you don't have it. I'm diggin this, you are on point here.

    everyone always says money isn't everything, but when you have money you have no worries, no need to stress. It's almost like your free of expectation. But money does't buy everything........tight flow I really liked it
