lyrics

Chorus:
All my friends, all about the dollars and cents,
Never ‘bout the consequence, we live.. Live for the moment!
And we’re going hard, all the clothes and cars,
Everybody knows we’re stars, and we live.. Live for the moment!

Verse 1:
You be getting down,
up in every dance club, just to sit around.
You don’t even be dancing,
Plus, I know you, you ain’t into that romancing.
You do it to be seen,
I hate seeing my brother be a dude that’s on the scene.
Blowing green just to be there,
Don’t forget, the owner’s eating off the fact that we there.
You’re putting on a show,
Promoter getting amped, “Damn, look at all ‘em go”
You’re dumping all the bottles,
For fake models that would be happy with moscato.
But you’re in another tier,
They don’t recognize your gear, they’re just happy that you share.
And I say it cause I care,
Cause what you spend on Goose, you could be up in the air somewhere..

Chorus:
All my friends, all about the dollars and cents,
Never ‘bout the consequence, we live.. Live for the moment!
And we’re going hard, all the clothes and cars,
Everybody knows we’re stars, and we live.. Live for the moment!

Verse 2:
Everybody had you on the calendar,
That means the day you turned 18, all dudes were coming after ya,
Body of horse, you were gorgeous and witty,
So of course you stood out like a Porsche in the city.
Disappeared before the page came,
Had the nerve to hit me up online with your stage name.
Came back with a new swag,
Red under your shoes, lil coupe, and some Lou bags.
Now I don’t have the answers,
Came blame you for eating while you got the chance to.
But there’s an expiration date for a dancer,
Right between when the trick calls, and when you answer.
That fast money’s like a cancer,
Eats you from the inside, while you’re buying pampers.
And yeah, I’m no better,
The street life ate me alive, we’re go-getters.
We both got better skills,
‘Sposed to love what we do, but love don’t pay the bills.
I still hope that you care,
It’s supposed to be a spring board, not your career, my dear..

Chorus:
All my friends, all about the dollars and cents,
Never ‘bout the consequence, we live.. Live for the moment!
And we’re going hard, all the clothes and cars,
Everybody knows we’re stars, and we live.. Live for the moment!

Verse 3:
People act like they’re glad we made it.
But on the low, they be pillow-talking, telling stories all fabricated.
When we styled on ‘em, I know that they fabric-hated,
Then they went and copped the knock-off when the fad was dated.
Exaggerated, imaginary player kind,
Cats with no game try to shine in the lay-up line.
Happens every time, the same ones that gave the props,
Happy when you take a loss, hoping they can take your spot.
I don’t wanna make you hot, ain’t saying names,
When you on the top, it’s not quitting if you change the game.
We made it rain, see a bar, buy it out.
I’m just glad I put enough aside to put the fire out.
We was grinding out, they could’ve took us both,
Took one for the team, time to look at the approach.
Dawg, we took an oath to have no fear,
But after seeing where I went, you don’t wanna go there..

Chorus:
All my friends, all about the dollars and cents,
Never ‘bout the consequence, we live.. Live for the moment!
And we’re going hard, all the clothes and cars,
Everybody knows we’re stars, and we live.. Live for the moment!
