Dollaz and Sense
Thinkin of a master plan
Cuz ain't nuthin but sweat inside my hand
So I dig into my pocket, all my money is spent
So I dig deeper but still comin up with lint
So I start my mission- leave my residence
Thinkin how could I get some dead presidents
I need money, I used to be a stick-up kid
So I think of all the devious things I did
I used to roll up, this is a hold up, ain't nuthin funny
Stop smiling, be still, don't nuthin move but the money

Damn! I didn't think it'd come to this.
It wasn't always this way...
Things were good at one time...
Now...things have changed...
And they could get worse before they get better...
I've tried to hold on to you for as long as I could...
Now I have to hold on to what I have...
It seems to be a struggle to keep you around every day...
The struggle has me concerned but not sad...
I'll make a way...
We'll make a way...
and the rest of the crew. I won't let you go. I can't do it. I won't do it.
I'm talking about them dead presidents, y'all. In this recession, it is important that we try to hold on to the discretionary income that we have. But when gas and food prices are worth a small fortune...you have to do what you can to cut corners to hang on to your loot.
I've stopped buying cds. I don't burn up all my gas cruising down Peachtree Street like I used to. The big lunch has been replaced by the small lunch. LOL. The road trips to SC to see the fam have been cut back. I'm doing what I have to do hang on to my bread.
Most of us are working hard but not seeing significant pay increases. Some of us are working harder for less money. Some of us have "money that's funny...and their credit won't get it. "
Since the money and credit crunch is affecting everybody...what are YOU doing to hang on to your paper?
