It's not all about the money
(It's not all about the money).
Cause I love what I'm doing for the people.
(I really love doing my job, I really do).
Don't know were I would be if this didn't happened.
But I finally made it...
(A lot of us don't graduate from high school.
A lot us don't get a chance at being a superstar.
A lot us don't get a chance to fulfill our dreams and I'm thinking like God!
If I wasn't doing this what would I be doing?
Probably like braiding hair.
Working at a super market. You know?
Just hustling two jobs you know what I mean?
At least trying to live.)
La, la, la, la
(I lost so much you know?
I lost so, so much over the years cause like it's amazing
how when you decide that you want to do the right thing.
When I say I "Finally Made It"
I don't mean like successfully, or wit money, I mean like...
I'm spiritually successful right now. You know like trying...)
Never give up, never give up, never, never give up, never give up...
(I'm on my way to like... A place were I know...
I never dreamed were I would be and that's perfection...
I'm striving for that...
I don't think no one can ever be perfect,
I'm striving again, striving against all things...
So what I'm saying to all my fans is...
If I can do it... I know ya'll can do it too...)
