    If I were a dolla bill
    I'd be popular amongst the masses
    Hangin' wit tha vast sects of religions
    And even the different classes
    I'd travel the world with ease
    And could even leave my Visa at home
    I'd even "change" communication
    From telephone ta cell-phone
    You wouldn't need "fifty cents"
    Ta get love in tha club
    Dolla bill tha new thrill even gets you thug luv
    "Sex On Tha Beach" in some too often dark place
    Straight up with no chase or on the rocks an laced
    Interchangeable conversations politix to religion
    Sex, Dolla Bill & murder, more than uh smidgen
    Crack heads would scramble
    High rollers would gamble
    All eyes on me!
    And sing my praise & universal PreAmble


    Cash, Rules, Everything, Around, Me
    C.R.E.A.M.
    Get the money
    Dollar, dollar bill y'all
    <=====I had to use that from the wu..it fit so perfectly in what I thought of

    The quiet chaos composed from conformity
    The loudest thing in the room is the bill & that's normally
    Drop a bill in a crowded room & see
    Coy & demure
    Turns into rushed emotions along with savagery
    Love turns to lashing if no checks are cashing
    Bills in bushes started passing
    That's how the towers started collapsing
    More funds for guns
    Put an end to Philly Passion
    "Brotherly Love" turned to gettin na snub
    Black piece to extract peace?
    But tha rats still getta grub!
    Worms "ghet" "to" eat on na daily type of basis
    Back yards, junk yards
    Comin out of eye sockets beneath stair cases
    Tha dolla bill still reigns supreme in this New World Order
    Janet needed uh hit so she just sold her daughter
    Three doors down from her, to uh perv named Marv
    Filled her with sexual deviate acts
    From humanity & love
    This young child already starved
    Three days later the child was found dead by her peers
    Loud screams, silent bill
    Who do you think her mother hears?


    Cash, Rules, Everything, Around, Me????
    C.R.E.A.M.?????
    Get the money?????
    Dollar, dollar bill y'all???
    <=====I had to use that from the wu..it fit so perfectly in what I thought of



    (The Love Of MONEY Is The ROOT Of ALL EVIL

    first of all let me correct a phrase money is not the root of evil but it's the root of all evil
    yeah this was a good write but that cell phone is the worse invention ever and it will bethe fall of us all 1.text messages are now being used by judicial courts to render decisions 2. wonder why the traffic ain't moving bet you somebody is on the cell phone 3. go into the bank he mister you can't use that cell phone in here but dang the security guard is got one on his side so look don't change the communication to a cell phone 4. now your picture can be taken anywhere and forwarded to who knows where many other drawbcks i don't care tomention at this time (but yeah a good write cash has ruled from day one HA! HA! HA!
