Broke II

[Hook: Aloe Blacc]
I need a dollar, dollar,
a dollar is what I need, hey, hey
Well I need a dollar, dollar,
a dollar is what I need, hey, hey
‘ said I need a dollar, dollar
a dollar is what I need
and if I share with you my story
would you share your dollar with me
 
[Part 1: Cro]
I’m broke, no cash, no ship ¹
I’m sorry baby
Once Around The World was a joke ²
and I’m
still broke,
still Cro,
I’d play on my Playstation, but
still no juice ³
So can you give me an euro?
Can I have a bite perchance? ⁴
Man, I’ll even sing you something,
or I’ll go wash your windshield
‘cause if I don’t eat anything today
I’ll be shittin’ bricks ⁵
every day I’m hustlin’ ⁶
it’s a Hard Knock Life ⁷
but I’m sure that the day will eventually come
when I’m sittin’ in the Ritz Hotel and say,
“Good day Mr. Bush, yeah, the suitcases go upstairs,
but bring all the models
and drugs to me now”…
… I come to ⁸
and wake up in my own chunks in the gutter, ⁹
it’s a quarter past 4
Just because of me
this god damned ‘hood stinks like beer
‘cause I’m something like a star,
they all just talk about me
but I’m sorry, it doesn’t matter to me,
‘cause sittin’ in your daddy’s Benz, you don’t get it ¹⁰
you’re not hungry and you’re not freezing
I don’t want to ride the train dodging fares anymore, I’d much rather
swing like Tarzan through the jungle
with my homies
 
[Hook: Aloe Blacc]
I need a dollar, dollar,
a dollar is what I need, hey, hey
Well I need a dollar, dollar,
a dollar is what I need, hey, hey
‘ said I need a dollar, dollar
a dollar is what I need
and if I share with you my story
would you share your dollar with me
 
[Part 2: Cro]
Hey, doesn’t matter what I try, it always gets screwed up
whether it’s mail man, minesweeper, boss, or gopher; ¹¹
Fuck, man
I need a plan and that means now, but ¹²
I’ve been through every field from A to Z¹³
and then on the telephone, my boss just says:
“Be there tomorrow morning at 6 o’clock sharp!”
What? He can go screw himself ¹⁴
I’d rather stay “Lyr1c,” cause as a rapper ¹⁵
I can sleep in
so you can take your stupid tasks and
shove them where the sun don’t shine ¹⁶
hey, ‘cause I could hit the ceiling ¹⁷
Yeah, I know, I shouldn’t let it chap my ass ¹⁸
so I’ll do it like my favorite DJ
and go [beep beep (busy signal)]
‘cause sadly, my
boss can hardly stand me ¹⁹
‘cause I’ll neither get up,
much less get out of here
now I’d like to turn this tape up loud
but I don’t have any speakers so
can you lend me some? No?
 
[Hook: Aloe Blacc]
I need a dollar, dollar,
a dollar is what I need, hey, hey
Well I need a dollar, dollar,
a dollar is what I need, hey, hey
‘ said I need a dollar, dollar
a dollar is what I need
and if I share with you my story
would you share your dollar with me
