Moral of the story
“because first you get the power, then you get the money,
then you get the pussy, dude don’t be no dummy uhh
Playas get they paper when they game is tight
and if you want some nana that’s for you to decide
But as long as you ain’t simpin’ then ya doin’ it right
’cause together they go hand in hand Oh yeah”
“Hand In Hand”
