lyrics

so why don't you just
take it slow
there's no reason for us to go
you've got the money honey check it and see
what it means to live perpetually

so why don't you just
take it back
and get us both back on the track
you've got the money honey, check it and see
the sums adding up to make us happy but...

their call you out
and I don't feel
like a spades a spade
unless it's real
cause it's just paper and ink

so why don't you just
read it slow
what better way for us to know
you've got the money honey check it and see
those portraits are smiling and like it's all free

so why don't you just
look on back
at our wake of blue and black
you've got the money honey check it and see
the notes aint lying and the numbers don't bleed

ink that doesn't scar
gets washed with the next bar
and though it may seem hard

it's not
to say what I wanna say
I've got them running on the back
tripping on the rock I kick up
and the dirt they’re sucking's just a reminder
that I'm on top
