    IMAGINE THAT HERE AT LAST
    BORN INTOPLEASURES OF THE GREEN THING
    MY FIRST WORDS WAS (TRUSTFUND)
    SO I CARRIED ON AND ON TILL THE POINT OF INSANITY
    AT THE AGE OF FIVE
    THE BEST OF NOTHING AND NOTHING IS BEST
    WHEN YOUR FORTUNE IS AS DEEP AS MINE
    SHOW ME THE MONEY AND I'M RIDING DEEP
    NAVI/CADDI STYLE WITH MY TOP DOWN
    ONLY THIRTEEN IMAGINE THAT
    GOING TO COLLEGE AND IT'S TIME TO PARTY
    AND NONE FOR STUDY GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS
    OH MY!
    I'M GOING TO MAKE IT THOU
    CAUSE I GOT IT GOING ON GRADUATION DAY
    CHILLIN ON MY NEW YACHT
    COKES ON MY MIND AND I CANT FIND THE KEYS TO MY LEXUS
    GIRL GET OFF MY JOCK DONT YOU KNOW WHO I AM
    I'M A TRUSTFUND BABY
    DADDIES GOING BROKE **** WHAT AM I GOING TO DO
    IN JAIL, IN JAIL WIT OUT NO BAIL
    GET YOUR HAND OUT MY POCKET I DONT SWING THAT WAY
    YOU WONT TELL ANYBODY WILL YOU
    CAUSE DADDIES STOCKS JUST WENT UP
    AND MALIBU'S CALLING SO I'M ON MY WAY
    WHY NOT RUN FOR OFFICE
    BUT I'VE BEEN STUDYING THE GAME OF IMBESSLEMENT
    WELL OK SO I WON
    AMERICA I'M GOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD
    BUT I'M NOT A CROOK
    DYING WITH MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE
    IMAGINE THAT
    BORN ON THE BLACK HAND SIDE
    PRAYING AND HOPING JUST TO STAY ALIVE
    AT THE TENDER AGE OF FIVE IMAGINE THAT
    GHETTO'S AND STREET CORNERS PASS ME BY
    CRACKHEADS AND WHORES ALL MAKE ME CRY
    DRUGS AND GANGS, PIMPS AND THANGS
    JUST ON THE WAY TO SCHOOL
    JACK THE WINO MY STREET CORNER FREIND
    TELLING JOKES AND STORIES JUST DONT ASK HIM TO GRIN
    CHESS ON THE CURB AND FOOTBALL IN THE STREETS
    HYDRAINS BLAZING AND I'M LATE FOR PRACTICE
    SCOUTS ARE OUT BUT I'M RUNNING WITH THE CREW
    SO IT LOOKS LIKE I'LL BE GOING TO THE CORNER COLLEGE
    BOOKS AND BANGING AND I'M STRIVING AHEAD
    TOO SEE THROUGH THE SMOG AND ABANDONED BUILDINGS
    FOR A WORLD BETTER THAN MINE
    MY OLDER BROTHERS CHILD HOOD SUIT
    GUIDES ME TO MY INTERVIEW WITH DESTINY
    BUT IT WASN'T ENOUGH TO MAKE IT PASS THAT MINIMUM WAGE
    BUSTED KNUCKLES AND CUTS ON MY ARM
    FROM SLINGING STEEEL TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE WEEK
    FIFTY YEARS LATER I MOVED TO THE BROOM AND TRASH
    TO SWEEP AWAY MY LIFE AND RECYCLE IT
    INTO MY CHILDREN FUTURE
    MASTER DEGREE'S, PHD'S, LAWYERS AND DOCTORS
    HAVE ALL DRIPPED FROM THE SEAT OF MY HEAD
    INTO SOCIETY AS MY CHILDREN PERSEVERE
    TO MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE
    IMAGINE THAT

    Very eye opening, mind numbing introduction.

    I'm pleased 2 make your aquaintance.

    That's the imagine that's not imagined.

    But one thing we have on them, a lifetime of strength is taught us, a lifetime of weakness is taught them.
