    [Intro: Scrap D.]
    Da, da, da, da
    Da, da, da, da, da
    (Yeah y’all, it’s like that y’all, it’s like “Bet Your Life”)
    Yeah
    It’s like rolling in a Bronco pumping them pumps
    You know what I’m saying?
    On Broadway or something, you know what I’m saying?
    Yo yo, straight up
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    [Verse 1: Scrap D.]
    Hey yo, call the paddywagon, I’ve seen a black boy cash stacking
    Smirk on my face screaming, “Fuck the Grand Dragon”
    For the fast cash, we be thinking to slow
    Clowning each others on the damn talk shows
    I don’t wanna house but I gotta stick and rob
    I got a disease, it’s called “Can’t find a job”
    Smoking on the herbs help me see a little better
    Looking for a job in this cold ass weather

    [Chorus: Prince]
    Watch out, I’m trying to get my shit together (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    Yeah – da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    (Got to keep it going, gotta keep it going)
    It’s been kind of lonely (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da)
    (Got to keep it going, got to keep it going)

    [Verse 2: Scrap D.]
    Hey yo, as soon as I come home, I’m stressed by my mama
    Questioning my whereabouts like I’m the Unabomber
    Question mark, comma, freeze all the drama
    Intensive care flows for all you hoes smacked with trauma
    As I sit back with my blunt and gin
    Grab a pen, write a song about a million black men
    Trying to blame all this violence on gangs
    What about those fools who kill for nothing and hijack planes?
    (Let me hear you…)

    [Chorus: Prince]
    Get your shit together (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    (Got to keep it going, got to keep it going)
    Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da)
    (Got to keep it going, got to keep it going)

    [Verse 3: Scrap D.]
    Yo, I’m going for the gold like an Olympic sprinter
    Fuck the bullshit, steaks for dinner this winter
    Yo, I’ve seen a murder scene that left a fool scarred
    Plus I saw a prisonyard way before a schoolyard
    Time’s rough plus time’s running out
    My mom said if I trip one more time, I’m getting kicked out
    And I ain’t trying to make excuses
    But looking for a job in the ghetto is fucking useless (Let me hear you sing)

    [Chorus: Prince]
    Get your shit together, straight up (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    Yeah, uh – da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    (Let me hear you sing)
    Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    Da, da, da, da (Da, da, da, da, da, da)

    [Bridge: Prince]
    Ask yourself your destination
    What the source of your inspiration be
    And you will find a spirit trying to get back to the mind
    How you was in your mama’s belly
    Live and let live was the order of the day
    What you say?
    Loving one another is the only way!

    [Chorus: Prince]
    Da, da, da, da, da, da, da
    If you believe in one thing, if you believe in to things
    (Da, da, da, da, da, da, da)
    If you believe in anything then let me hear you sing
    “Da, da, da, da, da, da, da”
    Keep on believing (Da, da, da, da, da, da)

    [Outro: Prince & Scrap D.]
    Lord
    (Yeah you all, it’s like that y’all, it’s like “Bet Your Life”)
    (Yeah you all)
    (Come on)
    (Yeah you all)[x2]
    (It’s like “Bet Your Life”)
    (Yeah you all, it’s like “Bet Your Life”)[x3]
    (Yeah)
