    Lyrics

    La La La La
    Wait 'til I get my money right

    [Connie Mitchell vocalizing]

    [Kanye West]
    I had a dream I could buy my way to heaven
    When I awoke, I spent that on a necklace
    I told God I'd be back in a second
    Man, it's so hard not to act reckless
    To whom much is given, much is tested
    Get the rest and guess until he get the message
    I feel the pressure under more scrutiny
    And what I do; act more stupidly
    Bought more jewelry, more Louis V
    My momma couldn't get through to me
    The drama, people suing me
    I'm on TV talkin' like it's just you and me
    I'm just sayin' how I feel, man
    I ain't one of the Cosbys I ain't go to Hillman
    I guess the money should've changed him
    I guess I should've forgot where I came from

    La La La La
    Wait 'til I get my money right
    La La La La
    Then you can't tell me nothing, right?
    Excuse me, is you sayin' somethin'?
    Ah uh, you can't tell me nothin'
    You can't tell me nothin'
    Ah uh, you can't tell me nothin'

    Let up the suicide doors
    This is my life, homie, you decide yours
    I know that Jesus died for us
    But I couldn't tell you who decide wars
    So I parallel double-parked that mother fucker sideways
    Old folks talkin' 'bout "back in my day"
    But homie this is my day
    Class started two hours ago, "Oh, am I late?"
    No, I already graduated
    and you can live through anything if Magic made it
    They say I talk with so much emphasis
    Ooh, they so sensitive
    Don't ever fix your lips like collagen
    To say somethin' where you gon' end up apologin'
    Let me know if it's a problem then
    Aiite man, holla then

    La La La La
    Wait 'til I get my money right
    La La La La
    Then you can't tell me nothing, right?
    Excuse me, is you sayin' somethin'?
    Ah uh, you can't tell me nothin'
    You can't tell me nothin'
    Ah uh, you can't tell me nothin'

    Let the champange splash
    Let that man get cash
    Let that man get pass
    He don't need to stop to get gas
    If he could move through the rumors, he could drive off a fumes
    'Cause how he move in a room full of no's
    How he stay faithful in a room full of ho's
    Must be the Pharoah's, he in tune with his soul
    So when he buried in a tomb full of gold
    Treasure, what's your pleasure?
    Life is a, uh, depending how you dress her
    So if the devil wear Prada
    Adam and Eve wear nada
    I'm in between but way more fresher
    With way less effort
    Cause when you try hard, is when you die hard
    Your homies lookin' like "Why God?"
    When they reminisce over you, my God

    La La La La
    Wait 'til I get my money right
    La La La La
    Then you can't tell me nothing, right?
    Excuse me, is you sayin' somethin'?
    Ah uh, you can't tell me nothin'
    You can't tell me nothin'
    Ah uh, you can't tell me nothin'

    La La La La
    Wait 'til I get my money right
    La La La La
    Then you can't tell me nothing, right?

      Heard the song in The Hangover and was surprised at first because I don't really like that much hip hop. When I found out it was Kanye I laughed out loud because I really can't resist anything he does.

      Dude's a genius. Love the song, and just him in general. Everything with him is different but still very obviously him.
