Hey Yo!
Yo Sham!
Yo sham!!!
-Yo, yo, yo!
Come here n***a, wassup man?
-what's the deal, son?
How you doin man?
-Chillin man
What you fuckin with that cat over there for?
-He is my n***a, son.
Nahah, don't f**k around with that n***a, yo.
-What you sayin, god?
I know that n***a--
-what? I gotta hold it down for my homes, son
Lemme talk to ya for a second, man, c'mere, c'mere

I been through bullshit, forced to pull s**t at the enemy
If I did it homes, it was the end of me
Back in the days, I'ma say like around your age
-what makes you figure that?
Yo, I used to move the same ways
Carying guns, sell a nickle chums to bums
Run away from home, running through the streets with a chrome
-n***a, f**k that, you see I'm livin on my own
-my life is based on the same place and the same zone
-thugs call me the Don, but never feel my calm
-at the same time you know it's hard for me to stay on
Yeah I'm feelin ya, but at I gotta keep it real with ya
Only when you got dough, n****s wanna be with ya
They feel ya out, find out about your whereabouts
Best friends turn enemies, plotting to take you out
-but it's all good, becuz they show me love in tha hood
-I got this s**t locked, don't worry bout it. Lemme cross ya out

Chorus:
Hey yo, I walk by myself, I die by myself
Cuz ain't nobody gonna help me but my goddamn self
I do for my self, make moves for my self
Cuz ain't nobody gonna help me but my goddamn self
I walk by myself, I die by myself
Cuz ain't nobody gonna help me but my goddamn self
I do for my self, make moves for my self
Cuz ain't nobody gonna help me but my goddamn self

Verse 2:
You see them cats that you run with, they allways in some dumb s**t
I'm tellin you right now, them cats shouldn't f**k with
-Now who the f**k is you? To tell me what to do?
-tryin to start some real s**t, tryin to make me flip on my crew
Go ahead and play hardass! Live your life fast
Tryin to warn you, seem like these streets got you gassed
-I got a problem right now, and I can't maintain
-I got some big time cat tryin ta split my fame
-yo, you see me in the street and wanna scream my name
-with some caked up voice, yo I made my chioce
-Tim and his boys foul plans was to leave me moised
-so I stood up, prayin to God that this ain't my last luck
-yo they got me judged, call tha blue cross cops ran up
*Freeze!!!*
-say please don't move too much, I think my man sat me up
-on a fact(?) shining to much
Left you wet up, same muthafuckas used to friend up
Got you hospitalized, look how you end up
Hooked up to a respirator, body all bent up
Your moms callin me at my home, cryin on the phone
Why the f**k you didn't listen? Wouldn't be in this position
You still breathing, a chance to change the way you living
-no more claiming the streets, I got a daughter to raise
-if I would've listened to you, I would never have got blaised
-now I'm f****d up, laying in this bed cramped up
-needles in my arm, thinkin how these cats play tough
-real thoughts in my head, oh how I showed 'em love
-f**k it, from now on gotta keep my s**t real calm
-plans to move up outta there, and grab my family to be gone

Chorus

*Chorus playin in the background while they talks*
Yo... Sham?
-yo..
Wake up n***a
How you doing man,
-f****d up right now, son
Didn't you see
I saw you earlier on the day, kicked it to ya man
The streets ain't no muthafuckin joke, n***a
-yo, son, see what they did to my fuckin leg, son?
I'm tired of that bullshit, I'm sorry--
-can't even lift my s**t no more.
Got holes up in this s**t, you holy now?
You believe in tha lord now, don't ya, m*******a?
-yeah...
When you get outta this b***h,
You better know how to walk the path m*******a.
-you grabbin me to get up outta here?
There's lot of things you can do in the world,
You're to young for this bullshit
You hear me?
-I know
-definitely

When you get better you come out, make your mama proud,
Make yourself proud, you keep ya head up, n***a
-definitely
You understand?
-I understand

What the f**k, n***a, at the end of the day you's a man.
Act like one
-definitely
