Lyrics
See I believe in money, power, and respect
First You get the money
Then you get the muthafuckin, power
After you get the fuckin' power
Muthafuckas will respect you

What's the key to life?
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life?
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right
Money, power, and respect
You can sleep at night
You'll see the light
What's the key to life?
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life?
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right
Money, power, and respect (yeah)
Money, power, and respect (yeah, yo, yo)
Money, power, and respect

Ayo, my whole clique 'bout it, 'bout it
We take yours while you pout about it
Truck, step out the whore's want to crowd around it
You could see me on optimum TV
Go in your bathroom turn the light out, scream
Bloody Mary, one, two, three
Sheek ain't your usual friend
But I can set you up like Kaiser and walk straight at the end
I'm done wit' ice and charms
I'm tryin' my whole casket when I'm gone
Pull up wit' class on the don'
Once I meet 'em I greet 'em
Kiss His feet for freedom
Tell 'em thank you Lord
'Cause on Earth I was gettin' bored
Now resurrect me back to this cat called Sheek
So I can make this album and get back to cats that's weak
Two thirty, six two
Me budge for you? That's like a cat verse a pitbull
Gun, know clip full, keep hunger
And plan for the future 'cause you figure
You gon' be older way longer than you gon' be younger

What's the key to life?
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life?
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right
Money, power, and respect
You can sleep at night
You'll see the light
What's the key to life?
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life?
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right
Money, power, and respect
Money, power, and respect
Money, power, and respect
What's the key to life?

Only time could tell how the clock tick
I'm really loved here but I'm still a hostage
Two personalities check the posture
Smoke out the mouth, clear out the nostrils
Think of death then life seem scary
I'm passin' graveyards seein' people Hail Mary
I ain't chillin til' I'm out parachutin'
Race my man in mountain climbin' for about ten diamonds
Twenty five thousand a piece, fuck streets
Tryin' to own the island , forget about wildin'
Try ridin' in the car that be glidin'
If I showed you where I lived you would think I was hidin'
Sling dick to chicks that don't speak English
Wake up in Trinidad, like, "Fuck it rich"
Come back private jet, live on set
If you could shit gold, I can spit baguettes

What's the key to life?
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life?
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right
Money, power, and respect
You can sleep at night
You'll see the light
What's the key to life?
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life?
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right (yo)
Money, power, and respect (yo, yo)
Money, power, and respect (yo, yo)
Money, power, and respect (yo)

Yo, nothin' but the hotness whenever we drop this
Monotonous for y'all to keep hatin' 'cause y'all never gon' stop us
I keep my rocks spotless and my hoes topless
Take time try to figure out who The Lox is
Fear no one, kick rhymes like Shoguns
You scared to blow one get robbed wit' your own gun
If I don't respect you I'ma check you
And if I don't kiss you I'ma peck you
Right before I wet you
I sneeze on tracks and bless you, I'm special
And if you like workin' out then I'm gon' stretch you
Hustlin' is dead but we still get red
Turn the spots in the bakeries to get back bread
And y'all said my money's spent but it's in the Bent'
So when the Feds come the dogs can't get a scent
And my story, self-explanatory
That I'm the hottest thing on the street
And y'all ain't got nothin' for me

What's the key to life? (Yeah)
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life? (What?)
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right (mhm, mhm)
Money, power, and respect
You can sleep at night (yeah)
You'll see the light (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
What's the key to life?
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life?
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right
Money, power, and respect
Money, power, and respect
Money, power, and respect

This is a beat that I can freak
Just drop the reels, bless a nigga wit' the ill
Y'all niggas know my skills
X in their grills, get 'em up, split 'em up
Wet 'em up and watch 'em come get 'em up, set 'em up
When you do dirt, you get dirt (uh)
Bitch, I'll make your shit hurt
And step back like I did work
This ain't no fucking game
What you think I'm playin'? 'Til you layin'
Somewhere in the junkyard, decayin'
Mom's at home prayin' that you comin' home
But you not 'cause you sittin' up in the trunk, startin' to rot
And hell is hot, I know because I'm here now, baby
It's goin' down, baby, keep the full pound, baby
And let off up in a nigga (uh)
Especially if he think he bigger
Than my muthafuckin' trigger
Dead eye, can I get mine? Is it gone?
DMX representin' one time 'cause it's on

What's the key to life?
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life?
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right
Money, power, and respect
You can sleep at night
You'll see the light
What's the key to life?
Money, power, and respect
What you need in life?
Money, power, and respect
You'll be eatin' right
Money, power, and respect
Money, power, and respect
Money, power, and respect
