Yeah, hey, Cole world.
Hey, I gotta dollar and a dream, that's all a nigga got,
So if it's bout that cream, then I'm all up in the spot,
I gotta dollar and a dream, just a dollar and a dream.
Cole! Walk with a nigga, I give you my pain,
So much on my mind, I wonder how it fit in my brain,
Scattered thoughts, dark secrets lead me to a blacker heart,
Life can't get any worse, Stevie with his glasses off.
‘Cause I still don't see hope, lookin' for a quick fix,
When everyone I see is broke, get lost in weed smoke,
Knowin' it make it worse, thoughts roam uncontrollably.
Barely trustin' niggas, over a decade they been knowin' me,
Shit, life at the bottom, nobody but God got ‘em,
They say He wouldn't leave me, yet I'm fallin' like it's autumn.
Tell me, what do you do just when you're on your last dollar,
And the stress of this mess you in can make your ass holla?
Do you fold grow bitter and grow cold?
No longer fightin' now the only thing you grow is old.
Or do you flip that fuckin' dollar to a dream?
Whether a scholar or a fiend, watch a pawn become a king, Cole!
Young nigga with his jeans low,
Nice guy, just got a mean flow,
Never seen rich but he's seen poor,
Mr. Dollar & a Dream, in case y'dunno.
Yeah, armed and ready, you niggas, strung out, you spaghetti,
Ya paper, confetti, small time, y'all on one, I'm on mine,
You logged off ‘cause I'm online, small talk from small minds.
I wanna buy the mall but there ain't shit in this small town,
This where I get my dough:
My niggas make sure the money right and then I rip the show.
I run the town they tried to call me underground,
I spun around like you wish,
Homie, my backpack Louis, now watch just how I do this.
I got the nerds rappin' hard shit, dummies rappin' smart shit,
Mozart meets Humphrey Bogart with this from the heart shit,
Play your part, life is but a dream for me,
I get a flash of nightmares when niggas scheme on me.
It's hard to see my enemies, who infiltrated my team,
I take a step back and notice that things ain't what they seem,
That's when a nigga refocus, yeah, I turn on them high beams.
I got that red dot waitin', I'm wastin' your whole regime,
I wish a nigga would, boy, you can't outsmart me,
I let you feel like you the shit, but, boy, you can't outfart me.
Ya never have it, I know you want what I got,
But, nigga, you ain't me, but you are what I'm not,
And that's a phony ass, lonely ass, Cole is what you know me as,
But we far from homies.
If you know my mama, you know me,
If ya don't, then, well, I'm sorry, you should get to know Kay,
Man, she been workin' too hard, I should send her a bouquet,
My goal this year is a real one, gonna stack a million,
And as soon as I do, mama that nine to five is through.
And I know I ain't been callin' but I'm thinkin' ‘bout you,
And all the shit that you been through,
My girl and then my brother too.
‘Cause this life gets hard on this road, yeah, it's true,
I don't never tell you how much I be stressin', but I do.
But I suck it up for who? My fans and my mans
Who probably never ever had this type of lifestyle in they plans:
Hoppin' in and out of vans, on the buses, on the planes,
Gettin' brain from a bitch and thinkin', “Goddamn, what's her name?”
Sometimes I just shake my head and tell myself, “This is a shame”,
And then my other side kick in like, “Bitch, don't be so fuckin' lame!”
Damn, what a life! Another day, another night,
At times this shit is all blurry, pray and hope that God heard me;
Just for those prayin' for me, man, I know that y'all worry,
But I ain't never failed and you can bet I never will, Cole!
Hey, ‘cause, nigga, that's life and trust me, I'm livin',
Look what a nigga done, made out the shit that I was given,
Look what a nigga made out, look what a nigga made out.
Got a dollar and a dream, three.
