Lyrics

Bitch I’ma run the thug life
(Thug life)

You better get your act right

(You better get your act right bitch)

Cuz I like to live lavish

(Lavish)

I do above average

(I do above average shit)

And one day I might buy your whole life

And one day you’re gonna realize I’m a gangsta

(You’re gonna realize I’m a gangsta)







My teacher stood up at the front of the class

said Ricky Boltz I don’t think you’re gonna pass

You’re such an ass

You never pay attention, distant look your eyes are so glassed over

you might as well just get out my class

Grover

just gave a little glance in my direction knew I was high on that grass

stoneder

than Cheech and Chong, Redman and Tical’s soldier

I reached down in my pants and grabbed a handful of what made me a man

told her

that all she had to do was just ask for it

don’t get up on my dick teaching me shit that I’ma never use

the Pythagorean theorem ain’t gon help make me a better dude

I’m better off just skipping school and making a buck

I mean fuck

the only good thing about your program is lunch

she looked stunned and said “ I’m giving you the tools to survive in the real world”

I said “if you can’t do your taxes then you need to chill girl!”

and then I walked right out the door like a boss

turned and I paused threw a couple of deuces up before she could talk

and said “fuck off bitch”







Bitch I’ma run the thug life
(Thug life)

You better get your act right

(You better get your act right bitch)

Cuz I like to live lavish

(Lavish)

I do above average

(I do above average shit)

And one day I might buy your whole life

And one day you’re gonna realize I’m a gangsta

(You’re gonna realize I’m a gangsta)







Now I got me a job I’m making sandwiches for minimum wage

I’m 17 no responsibilities yeah living is great

a studio apartment with 3 friends who splitting the pay

don’t got hot water but I got enough to get us an eighth

so we smoking the homie told me that the shrooms on the way

I said “hold up wait till I’m home I think I get off at 8”

rolled out the door and I headed to work smoked out in the freezer and made it through maybe 2 hours before my boys pulled up in a grey

bucket said fuck it I’ma trip tonight

asked the manager if I could leave he said “this isn’t right!

It’s rush hour and I got nobody else to cover your shift,

and if you decide to try to split I’ll make sure you don’t work up in this business again!”

I took me a second to think about all of the repercussions and then

I told him to take this job and shove it as far as he can up the rim

I didn’t even clock out

Just took off the apron and went to the nearest exit turned around and told him to “suck my dick bitch”







Bitch I’ma run the thug life
(Thug life)

You better get your act right

(You better get your act right bitch)

Cuz I like to live lavish

(Lavish)

I do above average

(I do above average shit)

And one day I might buy your whole life

And one day you’re gonna realize I’m a gangsta

(You’re gonna realize I’m a gangsta)







I’m in my early 30’s hair getting grayer with every day that passes

my left knee clicks when I bend it face is prickly as cactus

cigarette stain on my index finger I flick my ashes

straight out the window reminisce a little on things that passed me

coworker asked if I really think I can make it rapping

“You’re getting older it’s time to grow up forget your passion

you’re already making six figures as a fricking mechanic

so why you wasting your time with lyrics?”

I nearly slapped him

you really believe I’m tryna spend all of my life in this hole?

with no control? I’m never at home I feel like I’m losing a piece of my soul

with every shift I complete but whenever I get on a beat

I can freely speak and be me without thinking what corporate would think

he said “I’m just saying nobody gon take you seriously

when you 33 and living in Elko doing shows at the G

I leaned over got a little bit closer and told him calm as can be

“ever doubt me again and you’ll be swallowing teeth

you gon see bitch”







Bitch I’ma run the thug life
(Thug life)

You better get your act right

(You better get your act right bitch)

Cuz I like to live lavish

(Lavish)

I do above average

(I do above average shit)

And one day I might buy your whole life

And one day you’re gonna realize I’m a gangsta

(You’re gonna realize I’m a gangsta)
