Ay The price of fame I think I paid, want my change I done gave Everything in my possession for my seconds on the stage For my name up in lights and multi-million record sales I done gave up my life, can't get a moment to myself When alone I ask myself, is it worth it? I ain't perfect Neither is anybody else, but I think my kids deserve To be with Daddy out in public without all the interruptions When the lies and gossip's published I'm the topic of discussion And I stay in trouble just to show these suckers I ain't lost it And I'd do it all again that's the funny thing about it I ain't playing, boy I'm 'bout it Will I change, boy I doubt it I done been a lot of things, I ain't never been a coward See the paparazzi crowded all around me now Same niggas who was dissing want a pound like I'm senile (fuck nigga) Showered with support from my adoring fans They hear T.I.'s arrested they're like here we go again
My life, your entertainment You watch it while I live it (live it) I walk they follow (ay) I talk they holler (ay) Just here for your amusement (my life) My life, your entertainment (entertainment) You watch it while I live it (live it) (whoa) You waiting for me to lose it (whoa) I guess I'm just here for your amusement (yeah)

My life, your entertainment (entertainment) You watch it while I live it (live it) I walk they follow (ay) I talk they holler (ay) Just here for your amusement My life, your entertainment You watch it while I live it (live it) You waiting for me to lose it (lose it) I guess I'm just here for your amusement (yeah)
See I don't think it would even matter (to me) Working a nine to (five) would it be better I mean be honest, would you care to gossip about me ('bout me) Not likely I guess that's just the way that it goes (the way that it goes) ('Cause I know) See I can be somewhere out keeping it cool (And get told) Almost anything instead of the truth Y'all know more than I do, it's breaking news to me too Easy killer y'all know that ain't how I move (ooh) He said and she said (what) I did what, with they (who) No not me I said (not me) she gave me no head (ooh) Won't get me again (hey) I pleaded the fifth (hey) I know better than to ever talk during the film Man them flashing lights can blind your eyesight To when you can't see what's wrong from right Well shorty 'til you walk a mile in my shoes And understand this is who I am
