It Is What It Is

It Is What It Is

Ice Cube

Will I ever get it right? get it right? [Repeat x2]
My momma think I'm outta sight, outta sight [Repeat x2]
It is what it is, it is, it is [Repeat x2]
I do this for my kids, my kids, my kids [Repeat x2]
(understand me!)
Now homey do you dig, do you dig, do you dig?
It is what it is, it is, is is
I do this for my kids, my kids, my kids [Repeat x2]

Now will I ever get it right? get it right?
Even though I'm out at night, livin' life
Girl I'm tryin' to make this money, I ain't even playin'
Course the game I'm in, it ain't even payin'
When I'm on the go, on the go
Everybody wanna know, wanna know
Cube where the fuck you goin', each and every day?
I just turn around, and I say

[Chorus]
It is what it is, it is, it is [Repeat x2]
I do this for my kids, my kids, my kids [Repeat x2]
Now homey do you dig, do you dig, do you dig?
It is what it is, it is, is is
I do this for my kids, my kids, my kids [Repeat x2]

Even though I'm messin up, messin up (you fuckin up)
Feel the devil catchin up, catchin up
I put it in the lord's hands, he is the man
Please his demands 'fore he turn me into sand (don't do it)
But got to pay the rent, pay the rent
Without the government, government
I do it for the fuck of it, fuck of it [Repeat x2]

[Chorus]

[interlude]
Got to get my swagger up [Repeat x2]
Please get yo' swagger up
Got to get my swagger up
Better get my swagger up

Check this out homey
This business right here, is personal
I would go around you, over you, under you or through you
To make sure none of my family suffer
Do you understand me?!

[Chorus]
