Erica Banks – Give It Up Lyrics

[Intro]
(Ayy, Doe Doe, ow)
[Verse 1]
I’m twenty-one, I’m in the game, I put myself in it too
I   got   a lot on   my mind, I put myself in   the booth
They say they wanna be just like me, put yourself in my shoes
Makin’ money off the music, put myself in a coupe
And I done been broke before, ain’t no shame in my story
Not worried ’bout another bitch or if a bitch came before me
And I done been down and out, remember people ignored me
I ain’t never ever fold, I kept the faith and the glory
Got in my zone, shit, I had to get my sack right
And if I ever had a nigga, know he act right
I dreamed of money, dreamed of power, I wanted that life
I got the cash right, I’m on the last flight
[Chorus]
This is what I took for me
I ain’t what I used to be
And this shit is true to me
And I don’t ever wanna give it up
This is what I took for me
I ain’t what I used to be
And this shit is true to me
And I don’t ever wanna give it up
[Verse 2]
Paper chasin’, I been money makin’ (Yeah)
They know I’ma do it for the culture, I’ma take it (I’ma take it)
I’ma hustle, get it off the muscle (Uh)
Even if it’s hard, I’ll never stop, shit, I’ma tussle
I been baggin’, I done got up in my groove (In my groove)
And I been winning, I ain’t never come to lose (Come to lose)
And I been one and I was never number two (Number two)
Ain’t needed member shit and never needed you
Got the bag up (Up), I done racked up (I done racked up)
Now everybody come around, like nigga, back up (Nigga, back up)
I ain’t last up (No), get your cash up (Yeah)
Round of applause, nigga, go’n ahead and clap up for me
[Chorus]
This is what I took for me
I ain’t what I used to be (I ain’t what I used to be)
And this shit is true to me
And I don’t ever wanna give it up (Ever wanna give it up)
This is what I took for me
I ain’t what I used to be
And this shit is true to me (Yeah)
And I don’t ever wanna give it up
