    i was flowin' today
    sippin' on some alize
    funny how life is these days
    i am blessed i am blessed i am blessed
    everytime i am stuck in a bind
    the lord steps in and shines
    on me and my man and my sons and my house and stuff
    i was flowin' today
    sippin' on some alize
    lookin' in the mirror and watchin' my hair turn gray
    and spiraling and twistin' and turning
    and i walked away with my bootie swinging
    i just started singing cause
    i have a job and i make a way no matter what
    and i baby sit other folks children
    and i have 2 bunnies for pets
    check that out? bunnies for pets
    and i was flowin' today
    sippin' on some alize
    that was after i conducted a meeting with 25 people in it
    and it made me laugh because i work for a sista
    and she just wants the JOB DONE
    and i am willing to do that for her
    i see she needs protecting too
    and then people ring my doorbell crying
    and i say here, have a glass of alize
    cause i flow that way
    shoot, even the cleaning lady
    she came to my door and said, i'll clean your entire home for x amount of dollars and she did such a good job
    i had to hit her off with a little extra cause she is willing to do what she gotta do for her family too
    but i am blessed i am blessed i am blessed
    in these hard times and unemployment
    and sometimes my paycheck looks like ****
    but i got benefits
    and i got a nice warm home
    and a good fine black man
    and i am blessed enough to sip on some alize
    at the end of the day
    if you're stressin' come my way
    cause life ain't so bad
    it's all how you see it
    and if you ride that wave
    one day you'll look in the mirror too
    and you will chuckle
    and watch your hair turn gray

    rich, cindy, thanks! the funny thing is that i ain't even old, but some genetic trait makes my hair turn gray. right now i'm tripping on it, but my husband is fuming that i dye it...he thinks it makes me look old, but i (for the moment) think it's cute!
