Same Ol' Dirty (Murphy Lee)

When I first started back in 1989 I was trying to claim games, I was barely writing rhymes I was 7 to 8, a little nigga with his head straight Never got to school early, always went to bed late Grew up with the older dudes, do what your brother do It's just so he happen to rap, "Man you think you cool?" Ali was my motivator, rapper slash educator Kept these boys dedicated mama like we better had made it Cuz my first name's paid, my last name bills Even though I got a record deal I paid bills still And erreybody changed to sell us I wish the fans would understand to except us and just us I know we blush, on a well-equipped bus And money we got enough, at least enough to not fuss We still got stress like you So in other words little dirty we just like you ya know! They thought he changed up since he came up But he's the same ol' dirty Might have switched his game up cuz the fame stuck But it's the same ol' Murphy Might have switched his friends up since he done been up Cuz it's the same ol' dirty Might have switched his rims up on his benz But he's the same ol'.. Murphy I know you ain't acting front-y My fans are like the police they be asking for me Ask them do they know me they probably say who cares Tell 'em I'm with Nelly they getta coming in pairs The fame thing is the same thing as the devil People who see you never put on you on a hell of a level I once wore scuffed up Air Force 2's And this girl said, "That ain't Murphy Lee look at his shoes!" See these kids are so smart recognize you from head start They be like "I know that ain't you up in Wal-Mart" Can't a brother buy his own draws I'm not a star I'm a grown ass boy I'm not staying the in car But people gonna recognize, they know who you are Well if they see me today, they gon' be cool tomorrow Cuz I'm a be at Circuit City buying DVD's In aisle 3 eating fries from your local Mickey D's They thought he changed up since he came up But he's the same ol' dirty Might have switched his game up cuz the fame stuck But it's the same ol' Murphy Might have switched his friends up since he done been up Cuz it's the same ol' dirty Might have switched his rims up on his benz But he's the same ol'.. Murphy Yo, yo, I'm still the same dirty, dirty I still make mistakes I know my birthday was the only day a dirty saw a cake I'm humble like an African King I appreciate things Let me refer you on what's happening then In 93, had an idea we really believed in 94, 95 we began critiquing In 96, I think we signed some bullshit 97, yo we had the number one hit 98, had to vacate to get our shit straight Signed with Cool-to-love to get rid of one of the headaches In 9-9, it's when them boys got signed and if Nelly don't sell a record then it all goes down 0-0 thru 0-1 we weren't below no one and no one could ever take from or want more done 0-2, Lunatics sold damn near 2 So in 0-3, we gon see what Murphy Lee gon do They thought he changed up since he came up But he's the same ol' dirty Might have switched his game up cuz the fame stuck But it's the same ol' Murphy Might have switched his friends up since he done been up Cuz it's the same ol' dirty Might have switched his rims up on his benz But he's the same ol'..
