    Livin' large and lavish
    Ain't all it's puffed up to be
    Let me steal a few minutes of your time
    And I'll share a portion of my life story.

    Born into this world as I am
    With a silver spoon in my mouth
    My life wasn't considered normal by some
    For a Black girl livin' in the South.

    My Moms and Pops
    Kept my needs met
    And there's nothing I've wanted
    That I haven't gotten yet.

    Some have said I'm spoiled
    Others call it blessed
    I actually think it's both of them
    However, it carries alot of stress.

    My life has not been easy
    And that's one thing for sure
    Material "stuff" don't mean a thing
    Compared to the heartaches I have endured.

    All my life I'd had to be careful
    To keep my head up and watch my back
    For there was always somebody lurking
    Trying to bust me for my "stack".

    I've never claimed to be a balla
    But others choose to think so
    I'm just livin' large and lavish
    'Cause that's the only life I know.
