I didn't know there'd be troubles along the way
Nobody told me nothing
Nobody told me nothing, nothing

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I went through 8 different schools
And 12 different years
That's 30 different teachers
Over 10,000 different peers

And I din't found new one
Got suspended every time
Besides a few were feelin' me
And committed dirty crimes

But never braggin'
No, just want you to see me where I have been
I never proud of it
So, I don't have to go back there again

And I used to go like house to house
Sleeping on couch to couch
Walk around, sticking out my hands
Looking for a hand out

Only thing got handed out was more bills
Only thing that pulled me out was my will
God told me the sun don't chill
They told me to make use of one of these skills

Ain't for that our or go and beat the block
Ain't no way you can heat the cops
Ain't no way I could beat the clock
It's just a matter of time, shut down, you're shot

You stay up day and night, livin' this way of life
I was young and restless
All my children came and then
I had a guiding light

No more that sittin' main
Sitting and waiting and thinkin'
Somebody coming to take me up off the streets
But now I know

Nobody told me that the road would be easy, yeah
I don't believe I made it this far
My whole life and I've been working so hard
And I know

Nobody told me that the road would be easy, yeah
I can't believe I made it this far
My whole life and I've been working so hard
And I know

I say and now I'm saying
I can stay here and count on one hand
How many people see me graduate
I know a few that did betta bunch that eight

Seeing folks showin' up in swarms
Waiting for me to go on
Wanna see Nelly perform
What was this so pure before?

I became this house hold name
I was playin' on little league games
Nobody cared if I go on for three
Nobody out here routin' for me

And my mama supported me in everything
While she did everything
Some people got the nerve to ask
Y'all kiss my ass and that's my mama

That sister didn't need my help
In a game we sought no wealth
Give anythin' that I had
Just to see her in perfect health

Now we out here complaining
I got work to do
How bad you think you got it
Somebody else got it worse then you

[Incomprehensible]
Don't plan on coming back down
Don't plan or leaving her no time soon
When I got to comfortable now

Wouldn't have no knowledge or wealth
Without no knowledge yourself
No, I'ma keep walking this road
My mind, body and soul, I know, I know, I know

Nobody told me that the road would be easy, yeah
I don't believe I made it this far
My whole life and I've been working so hard
And I know

Nobody told me that the road would be easy, yeah
I can't believe I made it this far
My whole life and I've been working so hard
And I know

I didn't know there'd be troubles along the way
Nobody told me nothing
There wouldn't me to ease my pain

And I've been walking this road
For forever and a day
Now, I'm in search for something
For someone to help me find my way

And now I know
Nobody told me that the road would be easy, yeah
I don't believe I made it this far
My whole life and I've been working so hard
And I know

Nobody told me that the road would be easy, yeah
I can't believe I made it this far
My whole life and I've been working so hard
And I know

Nobody told me that the road would be easy, yeah
I don't believe I made it this far
My whole life and I've been working so hard
And I know

Nobody told me that the road would be easy, yeah
I can't believe I made it this far
