Letra:

Whatcha gonna do when they come for you, work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, what we gonna do when they come for you, gave me the life that I came to live. Do I really, want my baby, brother tell me what to do, I know you got to get your hustle on, so I pray, I understand the game, sometimes, and I love you strong, but… What you gonna do when they come for you, work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, what we gonna do when they come for you, god I can’t stand life withoutcha.

Now, me and baby got this situation, see brotha got this complex occupation, and it ain’t that he don’t have education, cause I was right there at his graduation. Now, I ain’t sayin’ that this life don’t work, but it’s me and baby that he hurts, cause I tell him right, he thinks I’m wrong, but I love him strong. He gave me the life that I came to live, gave me the song that I came to give, pressure on me, but the seed had grown.

I can’t make it on my own, summer came around and the flowers bloomed, he became the sun, I became the moon, precious gifts that we both received, or could this be make believe. Whatcha gonna do when they come for you, work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, what we gonna do when they come for you, gave me the life that I came to live.

Don’t I know there’s confusion, god’s gonna see us through, peace out to revolution, but we paid though. Don’t you worry, I know there’s confusion, the work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, don’t you worry… Gave me the life that I came to live, don’t you worry… The work ain’t honest but it pays the bills, don’t you worry…
