The 'G' Within

Just a little something
You know
Just giving back what you gave me
Yeah
And it’s coming from within
Yeah
 
Where’s the moonlight
When do I need it most
Blessedly
I have the sun
These streets has got me hypnotized
But being a G, I was always known to ride
But being a G never stopped me from hustling to get my stride
No
 
My way of life won’t fake on me
(Won’t fake on me)
I paid my dues to be a straight O.G.
(Straight O.G.)
So for my life I thank my G.O.D
(Yes I do)
 
You don’t understand
The problem with pride and being a man
But to be a real G
Lost on these streets of pain and sorrow
(Streets of pain, agony)
(Till your last days)
But this ain’t the last of me
(No)
The tables are turned, I am up on the top of things
Rolling in a max, stacking snaps
I know the haps of my heavenly papi
(G’s be happy)
 
My way of life won’t fake on me
(Won’t fake on me)
I paid my dues to be a stray O G
(Strain on G)
So for my life I thank my G.O.D
Thank my G.O.D.
G
My way of life won’t fake on me
(Won’t fake on me)
I paid my dues to be a stray O G
(Strain on G)
So for my life I thank my G.O.D
G
 
Sometimes I get tempted by
What’s surrounding me and my
M.O.NE.Y.
Can we be stress-free and trouble flesh free
In revelation, devastation
But no hesitation for my innovation
But though I’ve slipped and slid
I want to thank God for letting me live
Another day, another way for me
To express myself to you
 
My way of life won’t fake on me
(Won’t fake on me)
I paid my dues to be a stray O G
(Strain on G)
So for my life I thank my G.O.D
Thank my G.O.D.
G
My way of life won’t fake on me
(Won’t fake on me)
I paid my dues to be a stray O G
(Strain on G)
So for my life I thank my G.O.D
G
 
Thanks!

Hi, I'd like to suggest a few edits if you don't mind:

- Just giving back what you gained
> Just giving back what you gave me

- But then a G, I was always known to ride
> But being a G...

- I paid my dues to be a stray O G
> ... a straight O.G.

- (Strain on G)
> (Straight O.G.)

- (Till the last day)
> (Till your last days)

- The tables are turned, I am at the top of things
> ... I am up on the top of things

No, I don't mind. It's a shame you can't request proofreading on transcriptions.

Yeah, there was a discussion a while ago. I guess they must have decided against implementing the feature. Too bad.
