What Would You Do... " Just To Get Paid ... ?
Make Shady Moves or .... " ENTERTAIN " .... !!!

Well It Seems Nowadays That Many Try ... !!!
By ... Playing The Game of ...

... "I'll comply, with anything and everything !
... Please just ensure that I get through doors,
... that make sure that, I won't be poor !"

That's The Score With Money WHORES ... !!!

Men And Women EVEN Kids ...
Are Used Just Like ... Recycling Bins ... !?!

TOO MANY To Name Who ... " Play The Game " ...
Just For GLAMOUR GLITZ And FAME ... !!!!!

OR As Some Say ... Just To Get Paid ... !!!!!

I Guess That's How The Story Goes ... ?!?

... "Money Makes People LIE DOWN !"

Just Like Those Who Well YOU KNOW ... !!!

Stake The Claim That They Are ... " PRO's " ... !!!
Some Host Shows On Radio OTHERS Make THOSE VIDEOS ... !!!!!

The Type That PROVES They'll Lay Down FLAT Just To ACCRUE ... !!!
A STACK of Cash I've Seen A Few And That's A FACT ... !!!!

You've Seen Em' TOO On MTV ... !!!
Were You Thinking ... PORNOGRAPHY ... !?!?!

Come On Now PLEASE ... !!!!!!!
Your Thoughts CLEARLY Are Quite UNCLEAN ... !!!!!

Just Like THOSE Who'll Tow The Line ...
To Get Piece of The ... " Devils Pie " ...

CASH HUNGRY Types Who'll SELL THEIR SOULS ...
Just To REACH ... Financial Goals ... !!!!!!

It's Like Their Life Can Be DEFINED ...
By Corporate Types Who SET The Price ... !!!

It's CLEAR We're STILL In SLAVERY TIMES ... !!!!!

Do The Strong SURVIVE Or Do WEAK Ones' THRIVE ... !?!
These Days These Questions Enter Minds ...
Who Make Selections ... WAY OUTSIDE ... !!!!!!!!!!!!
Boxes NOW FILLED With Those Inclined ...

To Show Some THIGH If The Price Is RIGHT ... !!!!!

Women And Guys Who Have Weak Wills ...
Will Fall In Line To Pay Their Bills ...

The Question IS Would YOU Do This ... ?

OR Would I ... Well These Days I Might ... !?!
HELL YEAH That's Right ... !!!!!
Let Me ... " THINK About That " .............

Did I Write THAT LINE ... ?!?
You See Sometimes WE ALL Have Times ...
Where Cash Becomes The Thing We Love ...

... "If I had cash, i'd pimp my ride !"

... "If I had her cash, i'd party all night !"

Ask Yourself THIS Do You Want THAT Life ... ?!?
Where Some Will Want To TAKE ...
EVERYTHING In Your Place And ENVY You ... !!!!!

Do You Think That's ... COOL ... ?!?

There's A Price To Pay For BIG BUCKS And FAME ... !!!

You May Find These Days That It's NOT So Great ... !!?!!
When You See Your Face It'll Be THE SAME ... !!!
And SURGERY Can't Change The Blood IN YOUR VEINS ... !!!

CHOICES You Make May Well DICTATE ...
How Happy You Are In Your FINAL DAYS ...

Money CAN'T SAVE YOU From YOURSELF ... !!!!!!!!!

It's A Path Many Choose But DON'T Be FOOLED ... !!!!
Money WON'T Make People ... LIKE YOU ... !!!

It's How You LIVE And The Things You DO ...
That In The End WILL ... DEFINE YOU ... !!!!!

ALL The Money You Make DOESN'T Make You GREAT ... !!!!!
These Days There's SO MUCH MORE AT STAKE ... !!!!!

Like Finding LOVE In A World of HATE ... !!!!!

We NEED To FEED Young Brains As Well As ENTERTAIN ... !!!!!

And DISPENSE With HATE On The Basis of Race ... !!!!!
It Seems These Days That My Style of Wordplay ...
ISN'T Deemed To Be Worthy of A Minimum Wage ... ?!?

But That's OKAY When I Reach Old Age I'll Be PROUD To Say ... !!!

That I DIDN'T COMPROMISE ... !!!
My LOVE For THE ART Just To Be A ... " Pop Star "
Or For RICHES ... Or For FAME ....

There's SO MUCH MORE To This Than Writing Scripts ...

........... " Just To Get Paid " ...........
