Ayo cuz When y'all tellin folk... about my life I don't want y'all to add nothing I don't want y'all to take nothing away I want y'all to play that thang Just like this here... Ya heard me
[Petey] Since the tender age (since the tender age) I been running wild (I been running wild) I seen all those things (all those things) You don't show to a child It wasn't love I was missing (lord knows) My folks cared for me I had a stubborn ass attitude (did what I wanna do) And y'all couldn't talk to me Tried often the strait and narrow But every time I would stumble and fall Fell so hard one time I fucked around and stayed down I don't wanna try no more I was getting a little older Those mistakes were a part of my life And my only regret is that I only get one chance to get it right
[Chorus] And I wanna tell the world the truth about me (2x) (listen to the song...)
[Petey] I caused more unnecessary stress to my mama than the word allow Old sister of mine I had once upon a time We ain't spoke in a while Life's been hard on me But I found a way to keep standing it And holding on (holding on) Pressing on (good God almighty) Standing in jail someday I'll break the monotony Cause Petey wasn't doing that well And I can behold a way that the world christened me ... If anybody give a damn to know What really went on in my life I wrote a song
[chorus] [voice talking] It is now gallow time All inmates are asked to get on your assigned bunks and Remain there until count time is made....count time... Olden... (yeah) Williams... (here) Monroe... (yo) Durant... (here) Pablo... Pablo.....
[Petey] Man I was just one of the ones That always wounded up in the midst of something Stayed in trouble if I won't fuckin' up I love ( I love) to bring the pain Growing up in Greenville, North Carolina outside of Rocky Mount I'm a be on the winning side When this whole life decide to give me just a little money You can sell it bootleg just as long as you can get it Whatever...just understand me
