    How I Got Over

    Out on the streets
    where I grew up
    First thing they teach us:
    Not to give a fuck
    That type of thinking can’t get you nowhere
    Someone has to care.

    How I got over
    Where the people come apart
    Don’t nobody care about you
    Only thing you got is God.
    Out here in these streets
    If you get down on your luck
    You can stand up
    With a hand down
    But nobody give a fuck.
    Out here in these streets
    Every man is for himself
    They ain’t helpin’ no one else
    It’s a hazard to your health.
    Living life in these streets.
    Who’s worryin’ ‘bout you, babe ?
    When you whiln’ out?
    Runnin’ around in these streets.

    Out on the streets
    Where I grew up (How I got over)
    First thing they teach us:
    Not to give a fuck. (How I got over)
    That type of thinking can’t get you nowhere (How I got over)
    Someone has to care. (Ya)

    When you on the corners too much drama
    Livin’ with the police right behind ya
    It's always more than a slight reminder
    We livin’ in a war zone like Rwanda.
    Before I go back to the heavenly father
    Pray for me if it ain’t too much bother
    Whatever don’t break me or make me stronger
    I feel like I can’t take too much longer
    It’s too much lyin’
    And too much fryin’
    I’m all cried out cause I grew up cryin’
    They all got a sales pitch I ain’t buyin’
    They tryin’ to convince me that I ain’t tryin’.
    We uninspired
    We unadmired
    And tired and sick of being sick and tired.
    A living in the hood where the shots are fired
    We dyin’ to live, so to live we dyin’.
    You’re just like I am.

    Out on the streets (Uh)
    Where I grew up (How I got over)
    First thing they teach us:
    Not to give a fuck. (How I got over)
    That type of thinking can’t get you nowhere (Ya, somebody, somewhere)
    Someone has to care. (Somebody’s gotta care)

    And I swear it isn't fair
    In suspended animation
    We ain't tryin' to go nowhere.
    Out here in these streets
    We're so young and all alone
    We ain't even old enough to realize what’s on our own.
    Livin' life in these hard streets
    Where it's like they lost their mind
    Is there anyway to find?
    are we runnin' out of time out here?
    Listen, hey
    Who's worryin' about you, babe?
    When you whilin' out?
    Runnin' 'round in these streets.

    Out on the streets (Uh)
    Where I grew up (How I got over)
    First thing they teach us:
    Not to give a fuck. (How I got over)
    That type of thinking can’t get you nowhere (Ya, somebody, somewhere)
    Someone has to...
