or
T.I.

Ey, this is special what is happenin'
To all my all my soldiers over there in Iraq
Everybody right here you gotta thankful for the life you got
Stop lookin' at what you ain't got
And start being thankful for what you do got
Lets give it to em baby girl

[Chorus]
You're gonna be a shining star, fancy clothes, fancy car-ars
And then you'll see, you're gonna go far
Cause everyone knows, just who you are
So live your life, ay ay ay
Instead of chasing that paper
Just live your life (Oh!), ay ay ay
Ain't got no time for no haters
Just live your life (Oh!), ay ay ay
No telling where it'll take you
Just live your life (Oh!), ay ay ay
Cause I'm a paper chaser
Just living my life (ay)

My life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)
Just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

Never mind what haters say, ignore them 'til they fade away
Amazing they ungreatful after all the game I gave away
Safe to say I paved the way, for you cats to get paid today
You still be wasting days away, nah had I never saved the day
Consider them my protege, homage I think they should pay
Instead of being gracious, they violated in a major way
I never been a hater still I love them in a crazy way
Some say they so gay and no they can't work on Labor day
It ain't that they black or white, it has a area in shades of gray
I'm West side anyway, even if I left today it stay the way
Some move away to make a way not move away cause they afraid
I brought back to the hood and all you ever did was take away
I pray for patience but they make me want to melt their face away
Like I once made them spray, now I could make them plead their case away
Been thuggin' all my life, can't say I don't deserve to take a break
You rather see me catch a case, and watch my future fade away

[Chorus]

My life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)
Just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

I'm the opposite of moderate,
Immaculately polished with the spirit of a hustler and the swagger of a college kid
Allergic to the counterfeit, impartial to the politics
Articulate but still grab a nigga by the collar quick
Whoever had problems with their record sales just holla 'tip
If that don't work and all else fails, then turn around and follow 'tip
I got love for the game but ay I'm not in love with all of it
I do without the fame and the rappers nowadays are comedy
The hootin' and the hollerin', back and forth with the arguing
Where you from, who you know, what you make and what kind of car you in
Seems as though you lost sight of whats important and went depositin'
Them checks into your bank account, and you up out of poverty
Your values is in disarray, prioritizin' are horribly
Unhappy with the riches cause you piss poor morally
Ignoring all prior advice and fore warning
And we might be full of ourselves all of a sudden aren't we?

[Chorus]

My life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)
Just living my life (ay), my life (oh), my life (ay), my life (oh)

Now everybody watchin what I do
Come walk in my shoes
And see the way I'm livin' if you really want to
Got my mind on my money and I'm not goin away
So keep on gettin' your paper
And keep on climbin'
Look in the mirror
And keep on shinnin'
Til the game ends
Til the clock stops
We're gonna post up on the top spot
Livin' my life, my life
Brand new city, got my whole team with me
Tonight, my life
I do it how I wanna do
I'm livin' my life my life
I will never lose her
I'm livin' my life, my life
And I'm not stoppin'

So live your life
