Other Side Of The Game Lyrics

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 without ya
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...

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 without ya
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...
