Lyrics

This time around
I’ll never get bit
Though you really wanna fix me
This time around
You’re making me sick
Though you really wanna get me
Somebody’s out
Somebody’s out to get me
They really wanna fix me, hit me
But this time around I’m taking no s***

See more lyrics

Though you really wanna get me
You really wanna get me

He really thought
He really had a hold on me
He really thought
They thought they really had control of me
He really thought
He really had control of me
He really thought
They thought they really could control me

This time around I’ll never get bit
Though you really wanna get me
This time around I’m taking no s***
Though you really wanna fix me
Somebody’s out
Somebody’s out to use me
They really want to use me
And then falsely accuse me
This time around
They’ll take it like spit
‘Cause you really can’t control me
You know you can’t control me

He really thought
He really had a hold on me
He really thought
They thought they really had control of me
He really thought
He really had control of me
He really thought
They thought they really could control me
He really thought
He really had control of me
He really thought
They thought they really had control of me
He really thought
He really had a hold of me
He really thought
They thought they really could control me

(Rap: The Notorious BIG)
Listen, I’ve got problems of my own
Flashin’ cameras, taps on my phone
Even in my home I ain’t safe as I should be
Things always missin’
Maybe it could be my friends
They ain’t friends if they robbin’ me
Stoppin’ me from makin’ a profit, see
Apology shallow like the ocean
I guess I’ll resort to gun totin’
If I was dead broke and smokin’
I’d probably be by my lonesome
I’m a killer nigga I ain’t jokin’
Endo smoke got me choked and I’m hopin’
The fool comes slippin’
So I could blow’em open
This time around
I changed up my flow
Got rid of the rocks
Got pits by the door
I’ve raised other peoples to watch my back
Stay away from strangers
So I won’t slack
And I know my nigga Mike like that
Baby

(Michael)
This time around yeah…
He really thought
He really had control of me
He really thought
They thought they really had control of me
He really thought
He really had a hold on me
He really thought
They thought they really can control me
