And yes i stay high on that purple like Aladdin,
And Women say i talk more game than John Madden"

Oh I wish I could get some cream.
And get up out of the hood with some dreams.
Catch me in Vegas spinnin' the green
I re-up with more chips than a vending machine
Then you can catch me in Rome making some brauds and sticking 'em
And you'll be at home picking your bougars and flicking 'em
A drug dealer's dream, so fresh and I'm so clean
Ludacris on the track get back trick switch on the lac' I'm flexin steel
Same price everytime hot song jumped on cause Ciara got
Then shag now and shag later til these women can't stand straight
The Luda meister gotta feelin so randy
I'm double XL so I call em my eye candy
Brush my shoulder and i pop my collar
Cause i'm worth a million, gazillion, fafillion dollars"
"East coast, West coast, Mid West, dirty South
Then we took it all around the world...
I got fans in retirement homes
The teenagers, to little bity boys and girls
Droppin' lyrical bombs up in your hood
Nonstop and I'm a hit em' 'til the block explodes
Hip hop, R & B, pop talk, what ya want?
I even got a little Rock & Roll"
"I split ya spleen, as matter' fact I split ya team
No blood on the sneak's, gotta keep it so my kicks is clean
I get the cream, cops see me flick my beams
Im allergic to 'doc perscribed anti-histemines
Oink Oink, Pig Pig, do away with the pork
Only silverware i need's a steak knife and a fork"
