I've got a criminal mind
Oh, oh, oh
C'mon, what? What?
What? What? uh, uh

These days, I wonder if crime pays
Blinded by criminal minded ways
Smokin' on ya, hay
(Turn it up)
Uh, huh

These days, cats be pushin' me
Places I ain't supposed to be
Money got a hold of me
Controllin' me

I've got a criminal mind
I can't help it, I'm on my way
To pick up the pieces

It's the only way I see myself
Gettin' to the other side
That's why, I've got a criminal mind

City lights, diamond sky
What a beautiful thing to be alive
Everything is all that I desire
Paper's in my hand, a chance to leap higher

I've got a criminal mind
I can't help it, I'm on my way
To pick up the pieces

It's the only way I see myself
Gettin' to the other side
That's why, I've got a criminal mind

Have you ever felt your life's standing still?
You want so much more than the world has to give
I can't see myself workin' every day
Makin' no money, barely getting paid

I should probably regret
All that I've done, in the past
But as I turn the pages of my life
I see you ride up again

Y'all still don't hear me?
Okay, check this out, yo
It's the DI, it's the DI
It's the D I G G Y, DA double DY

He be fly, all day
With a P I G E, okay
Police got a freeze on my diamonds
Did two years in the pen, I'm back again

And this time, I got to win
I'm a thief by nature, steal your love
I'm a crook with a hook and a plan for thugs, uh, huh
Y'all don't hear me, huh? Y'all don't hear me, huh?

These days, I wonder if crime pays
Blinded by criminal minded ways
Smokin' on ya, hay
(Turn it up)
Uh, huh

These days, cats be pushin' me
Places I ain't supposed to be
Money got a hold of me
Controllin' me

I'ma tell y'all somethin'
Y'all gon' still question my capabilities?
Are you stupid?
You sucker

I've got a criminal mind
I can't help it, I'm on my way
To pick up the pieces

It's the only way I see myself
Gettin' to the other side
That's why, I've got a criminal mind

I've got a criminal mind
I can't help it, I'm on my way
To pick up the pieces

It's the only way I see myself
Gettin' to the other side
That's why, I've got a criminal mind

I've got a criminal mind
I can't help it, I'm on my way
To pick up the pieces

It's the only way I see myself
Gettin' to the other side
That's why, I've got a criminal mind

Y'all don't see me
How we get down, ya know what I'm sayin?
Whatever's necessary, we gon' be 'bout it
'Cuz we 'bout it, for real
(They know we 'bout it though)

(Man, tell 'em how you do it)
Listen man, I got to get what I get
Any way I can get it, man, y'all hear me?
(I know that's right)

These days, I wonder if crime pays
Blinded by criminal minded ways
Smokin' on ya, hay
(Turn it up)
Uh, huh

These days, cats be pushin' me
Places I ain't supposed to be
Money got a hold of me
Controllin' me

I've got a criminal mind
I can't help it, I'm on my way
To pick up the pieces

It's the only way I see myself
Gettin' to the other side
That's why, I've got a criminal mind

I've got a criminal mind
I can't help it, I'm on my way
To pick up the pieces

It's the only way I see myself
Gettin' to the other side
That's why, I've got a criminal mind

These days, I wonder if crime pays
Blinded by criminal minded ways
Smokin' on ya, hay
(Turn it up)
Uh, huh

These days, cats be pushin' me
Places I ain't supposed to be
Money got a hold of me
Controllin' me
