lyrics

I wake up in the morning
That's when, the day, it starts
I polish up my grill
Colgate Total Care
I've got a pitbull in my backyard
I've got a hamster in its cage
I've got a rabbit in a straw-filled hutch
I'll get another one when I get paid
In Benjamins

And I don't get what I want
Because the Man is on my back
The Man's my boss, and she's a woman
I've got a problem with the way she wields authority
Not her gender, no
And I'm on the bus to town
Rollin' on dubs
That's when I remind myself, that's when I remind myself
I didn't choose the thug life, the thug life chose me

I'm in trouble with the law - for downloading Game of Thrones
I mistreated lots of women - I forgot their birthdays
Stole cheddar from some crackers - I de-cheesed a biscuit
I've got a lot of hose and I got it all from Homebase

And I don't get what I want
Cause what I want's impractical
Or just plain antisocial
But I didn't choose the thug life, the thug life chose me

If you see me coming
Be polite
Don't mention that my haircut's shit
Because I know it is
And if you get up in my grill
You can smell it's minty fresh
Some things you can control, and other things you just cannot
I didn't choose the thug life, the thug life chose me
I didn't choose the thug life, the thug life chose me
The thug life chose me
The thug life chose me
The thug life chose me
The thug life chose me
