I Shoulda Listened

This song is by Lil' Flip and appears on the album Undaground Legend (2002).

Huh huh
I had to do somethin' like dis
Ya know
Huh I shoulda listened
I shoulda listened

(Lil' Flip - Verse 1)
I shoulda listened, when ya said boy go and get a job
I shoulda listened, cause you gotta sell dope or rob
I shoulda listened, when you told me I need to go to college
But right now I'm tryin' to money in my wallet
I shoulda listened, when you said boy make good grades
But instead I was worryin about dem new j's
I shoulda listened, when you said boy don't get no tattoos
Now it's 2 years later and now I got 22
I shoulda listened, when you said keep playin' basketball
But I was makin' mo money standin in the hall
I shoulda listened, when you said I need to be in the church
But that's hard "why" cause everyday I gotta concert
I shoulda listened, when you said I need to watch my friends
Cause yesterday my partner got jacked fo' his Benz
I shoulda listened, when you said don't stand on the corner
Cause all black folks do is smoke marijuana

(Chorus: repeat 2X)
I shoulda listened, when yo told me don't do that I did it any way
I shoulda listened, when yo told me don't hustle but I gotta get paid

(Lil' Flip - Verse 2)
I shoulda listened, when you said quit standin on the block
Cause all that do is make it easy fo the cops
I shoulda listened, when you said it don't matta what car you drive
Long as you pay yo bills long as you survive
I shoulda listened, when you said don't be hangin' at the club
Cause people get drunk and wanna shoot the club up
I shoulda listened, when you said you can't please everybody
Right now I'm findin out I don't need everybody
I shoulda listened, when you said don't brind dem niggaz to ya house
'Cause when you ain't there they'll try to break in ya house
I shoulda listened, when you told me you read what ya so
So everybody I meet I can't treat'em like a hoe
I shoulda listened, when ya told me do somethin' wit my time
So I picked up the pen and paper and now I'm writtin ryhmes
I shoulda listened, when you said forget the money put God first
So that's the way I gotta end my verse

(Chorus) - repeat to fade
