    Thinkin of a master plan
    Cuz ain't nuthin but sweat inside my hand
    So i dig into my pocket, all my money is spent
    So i dig deeper but still comin up with lint
    So i start my mission- leave my residence
    Thinkin how could i get some dead presidents
    I need money, i used to be a stick-up kid
    So i think of all the devious things i did
    I used to roll up, this is a hold up, ain't nuthin funny
    Stop smiling, be still, don't nuthin move but the money
    But now i learned to earn cos i'm righteous
    I feel great! so maybe i might just
    Search for a 9 to 5, if i strive
    Then maybe i'll stay alive
    So i walk up the street whistlin this
    Feelin out of place cos, man, do i miss
    A pen and a paper, a stereo, a tape of
    Me and eric b, and a nice big plate of
    Fish, which is my favorite dish
    But without no money it's still a wish
    Cos i don't like to dream about gettin paid
    So i dig into the books of the rhymes that i made
    To now test to see if i got pull
    Hit the studio, cos i'm paid in full
