lyrics

Chorus
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get down now.
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get funky.

Verse 1
Hey little boy, you think your so slick.
You try to hustle everybody just to get rich.
You take their money and say,
“A big return upon the dollar”.
But when they come a callin’ you gave ‘em the wrong number.
Another victim!
You’re just a little motherfucker.
I know deep down inside you think the workin’ man’s a sucka.
Well let me tell ya’, I’d rather work a 9 to 5,
Than be stuck inside a cell and hear my momma cry.

Chorus
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get down now.
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get funky.

Verse 2
Hey little girl, I see you working hard.
You gotta feed your daughter so you work a couple jobs.
You love your baby, you want her in a private school.
But her father ain’t around and he ain’t helpin’ you.
You stay awake at night.
And watch your baby sleep.
And think about her future.
And what you want and need.
But what you want and need are two completely different things.
So you go and shake it shake it all upon that stage.

Chorus
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get down now.
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get funky.

Bridge
This is not a guide for how to live your life.
It’s just what I see.
I’ll never judge a man for his actions
‘Cuz the finger’s pointing back at me.

Chorus
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get down now.
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get funky.

I've spent my whole life trying to do a lot of different things but somehow I come to the same conclusion that music is all I want to do.
