This Time Around

This time around I'll never get bit

Though you really wanna fix me

This time around you're making me sick

Though you really wanna get me

Somebody's out

Somebody's out to get me

They really wanna fix me, hit me

But this time around I'm taking no s...

Though you really wanna get me

You really wanna get me



He really thought he really had

Had a hold on me

He really thought he really had

They thought they really had control of me

He really thought he really had

Control of me

He really thought he really had

They thought they really could control me



This time around I'll never get bit

Though you really wanna get me

This time around I'm taking no s...

Though you really wanna fix me

Somebody's out

Somebody's out to use me

They really want to use me

And then falsely accuse me

This time around

They'll take it like spit

'Cause you really can't control me



You know you can't control me

He really thought he really had

Had a hold on me

He really thought he really had

They thought they really had control of me

He really thought he really had

A hold on me

He really thought he really had

They thought they really had control of me

He really thought he really had

Had a hold on me

He really thought he really had

They thought they really had control of me

He really thought he really had

A hold on me

He really thought he really had

They thought they really had control of me



(Rap: The Notorious BIG)
Listen, I've got problems of my own

Flashin' cameras, taps on my phone

Even in my home I ain't safe as I should be

Things always missin'

Maybe it could be my friends

They ain't friends if they robbin' me

Stoppin' me from makin' a profit, see

Apology shallow like the ocean

I guess I'll resort to gun totin'

If I was dead broke and smokin'

I'd probably be by my lonesome

I'm a killer n***a I ain't jokin'

Endo smoke got me choked and I'm hopin'

The fool comes slippin'

So I could blow'em open

This time around

I changed up my flow

Got rid of the rocks

Got Pitts by the door

I've raised other peoples to watch my back

Stay away from strangers

So I won't slack

And I know my n***a Mike like that

Baby
