[Intro: Jay-Z] Uh, it's the boy Jay-Z, and the boy R. Kel The best of both worlds, please believe it Brookland, Chi-Town, to all the beautiful ladies in the world Dedicated to TT my niece, everybody in the world, talk to 'em Kel That's right, Tone this is mean and vicious man, so mean and vicious Rockland, Roc-a-Fella, the best of both worlds, come on
[Verse 1: Jay-Z] Lord forgive me I'm ballin' out of control Got the spirit of a hustler pouring out of my soul Mami I love you but ain't no stopping my stroll If you wanna be down with me you gotta rooolll Like a roll and if my side of the bed gets cold You gotta know that I'm out chasin' doooough I'm ain't stunting these hoes Stunting my growth if I fuck 'em I'm fleeing them I need something to hold Then I'm home to you I might roam like a cellular phone But I never leave you alone I Solemnly swear, I was married to the block before I met you It's still a part of me there but I Solemnly swear, I try but it's in my blood Pumping yay since I was yay high I'm in love with the life So except me for the bastard that I am You're still in love with me right?
[Chorus: R. Kelly] Baby I can't figure it out Said you pussy tastes like honey But I can't stop huggin' the block All night tryna get this money
Stuck between these two worlds What I'm gonna do with both these girls Two main squeezes in separate cities Both found out man, shit ain't pretty Stuck between these two worlds What I'm gonna do with both these girls Hard to choose between her and these streets Cuz the game keeps calling me
[Verse 2: Jay-Z] Baby girl had me off my grind, off my clock I would often find I was off my block Couldn't keep her off my mind, my balls were shot They never thought that a pause or stop Was in my pores to push rock raw Take a lost rebound like Bo Outlaw, I'm so outlaw Got a hunger for this game, but keep that on the low Like a one against the grain Got the sun against my brain A girl in my ear I like her for her I'm a dig into this shit, I like it like I like her Sometimes I can't figure it out I'm in love with the life but she's sticking it out She know wanna hug kisses keep a nigga in the house Lock down while his niggas is out (out)
