Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Intro (T.I.)

What you need to do is be thankful for the broke life that you got

You know what I’m sayin’

Stop lookin’ at what we rich folks got

and start worrying about your own s***

Cuz y’all in a recession and we ain’t

Let’s give it to ’em baby girl

Chorus (Rihanna)

You’re never gonna be a shining star

With fancy clothes and fancy ca-ars

And then you’ll see, you’re never gonna go far

‘Cause nobody important knows who you a-are

So live your life (ay), ay ay ay

Keep on chasing that paper

Just live your life (oh), ay ay ay

Ain’t got no time for your family and friends

Just live your life (ay), ay ay ay

I’m rich and you’re not

Just live your life (oh), ay ay ay

Since the paper chases me

I’m just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

I’m just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

Verse 1 (T.I.)

Never mind what the landlord says, ignore him until he fades away

Strange enough, everyone taught me it’s not about the money

Safe to say, I paved the way for my relatives not to live that way

Y’all broke folks be wasting days away, you think I’m gonna save the day?

Consider me your bloodsucker, money i think you should pay

Instead of acting like us, contribute to your boss in a major way

I ain’t saying I never been broke but I’d be crazy to still be living that way

Y’all say money ain’t important yet y’all still work a J-O-B anyway

It doesn’t matter if its day or night, you’re working overtime everyday

I make money either way, even if I just stayed home and slept the day

Some envy us no matter what we say, that’s okay cuz they afraid

I donate to charities, but not much of that goes to the actual charity anyway

Ya’ll have to pray for it to rain, but the rain follows me either way

I only do the work once and get paid over and over again everyday

Y’all gotta do it five times a week, no thanks I’m loving this break

I’ll just sit on my money while watching your’s fade away

Chorus (Rihanna)

You’re never gonna be a shining star

With fancy clothes and fancy ca-ars

And then you’ll see, you’re never gonna go far

‘Cause nobody important knows who you a-are

So live your life (ay), ay ay ay

Keep on chasing that paper

Just live your life (oh), ay ay ay

Ain’t got no time for your family and friends

‘Cuz you’re working 1-2 jobs

Just live your life (ay), ay ay ay

I’m rich and you’re not

Just live your life (oh), ay ay ay

Since the paper chases me

I’m just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

I’m just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

Verse 2 (T.I.)

I’m the opposite of broke

Financially secure with the money of a Trump

And the residence of a mansion

Allergic to the poor, impatient for the subway

Disgusted but still I got jokes real quick

Whenever depressed about money, just get a second job

No time to live your life? Just work until you drop dead

I ain’t gotta do all of that cuz ay I’m already in the club

How can money not be important, y’all folks are comedy

The hooting and the hollering, back and forth with the arguing

How much this, how much that, what you make, and when the bills are due

Seems as though you lost your mind when over-spending

Them checks in your bank account, plus you all up in poverty

Your values is in disarray, prioritizing horribly

Unhappy with us riches ’cause you piss poor morally

Ignoring all prior advice and fore warning

I’d say I’m pretty set for life, aren’t I?

Chorus (Rihanna)

You’re never gonna be a shining star

With fancy clothes and fancy ca-ars

And then you’ll see, you’re never gonna go far

‘Cause nobody important knows who you a-are

So live your life (ay), ay ay ay  

Keep on chasing that paper

Just live your life (oh), ay ay ay

Ain’t got no time for your family and friends

‘Cuz you’re working 1-2 jobs

Just live your life (ay), ay ay ay

I’m rich and you’re not

Just live your life (oh), ay ay ay

Since the paper chases me

I’m just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

I’m just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

Bridge (Rihanna)

I know what y’all brokes wanna do

Come walk in my shoes

And seeing the way I’m living

If you really want to

Got my mind on my money

And I’m not going no where

So keep working two jobs

And kissing your manager’s butt

Look at your paycheck and keep on crying

While the recession’s in check and y’all struggling

We gonna post up on the top spot

Living the life

The life

Brand new mansion, got my phat checks with me

The life

My life

I do how I want do

Cuz I don’t have a boss

Living my life

My life

I will never go broke again

Living my life

My life

And y’all fools can keep buying my records

So live your life!
