[Intro: Jay-Z] Uh, its the boy Jay-Z, and the boy R. Kel The best of both worlds, please believe it Brookland, Chi-Town, to all the beautiful ladies in the world Dedicated to TT my niece, everybody in the world, talk to 'em Kel (R. Kelly: It's the best, of both worlds) That's right Tone this is mean and vicious man, so mean and vicious Rockland, Roc-A-Fella, the best of both worlds, come on
[Verse 1: Jay-Z] Lord forgive me I'm ballin out of control Got the spirit of a hustler pourin out of my soul Mami I love you but ain't no stoppin my stroll If you wanna be down with me, you gotta rooolll Like a roll and if my side of the bed gets cold You gotta know that I'm out chasin doooough I'm ain't stuntin these hoes, stuntin my growth If I fuck 'em I'm fleein them, I need somethin to hold Then I'm home to you I might roam like a cellular phone, but I never leave you alone I Solemnly swear, I was married to the block before I met you It's still a part of me there but I Solemnly swear, I try but it's in my blood Pumpin yay, since I was yay high I'm in love with the life So accept me for the bastard that I am You're still in love with me right?
[Chorus 2X: R. Kelly] Baby I can't figure it out Yo' kiss is just like honey But I can't stop huggin' the block All night tryna get this money
[Interlude: R. Kelly] Stuck between these two worlds What I'm gon' do with both these girls Two main squeezes in separate cities Both found out - man, shit ain't pretty Stuck between these two worlds What I'm gon' do with both these girls Hard to choose between her and these streets Cause the game keeps calling me
[Verse 2: Jay-Z] Baby girl had me off my grind, off my clock I would often find I was off my block Couldn't keep her off my mind, my balls were shot They never thought that a pause or stop Was in my pores to push rock raw Take a lost rebound like Bo Outlaw, I'm so outlaw Got a hunger for this game, but keep that on the low Like a one against the grain, got the sun against my brain A girl in my ear, I like her for her I'm addicted to this shit, I like it like I like her Sometimes I can't figure it out I'm in love with the life but she's sticking it out She know wanna hug kisses keep a nigga in the house Locked down while his niggas is out (out)
