lyrics

Hook:

I'm tryna be a just man, I'm not perfect and I got flaws
See I might stumble and I might fall
but I'ma still get up
still get up
still get up


Verse 1:

Please forgive me for sounding so serious
but y'all caught me going through a transitional period
I'm changing y'all, I'm repositioning my life
I, went back to school, married my, beautiful wife
and some people ain't support us, and I can't say I feel'em
but for every fake friend I lost I made two real ones
amazing how that work, it was written I ain't choose it
so, it's only natural that it comes out in my music
Stress told me this my Black Album, I said you kidding
now that I listen I find it's really hard to argue with him
cause me and Stress make some everlasting art
when you combine a focused mind with an impassioned heart
yo we come through with shining results standing proud
muddy unshowered, head bloody but unbowed
I'm tryna be a stand up guy so in reality
this music's like a washing machine for my morality


Hook:

I'm tryna be a just man, I'm not perfect and I got flaws
See I might stumble and I might fall
but I'ma still get up
still get up
still get up

Verse 2:

Yo you'll always lose money while chasing after women
but you'll never lose women while chasing after money
that's just a little jewel I felt the need to drop today
so decide for yourself if you want gwop or you want Goapele
but if you sure then I'm 100 behind you homie
don't get divorced and get forced to pay vaginamony
cause you was tryna be a player at 38
and now it's like you're eating your favorite meal off a dirty plate
single women throw it at me like they're pitching
and try to work their magic but you can't trick the magician
you can have kids but I ain't babysitting boo
she said you want the cat dog you gotta take the kittens too
it's a package deal, man her rap was real
you can be a man, step up, handle that, or peel
I ain't expect that I gotta respect that
so as a real man I gotta try to correct that
cause

Hook:

I'm tryna be a just man, I'm not perfect and I got flaws
See I might stumble and I might fall
but I'ma still get up
still get up
still get up


Bridge:

I'm tryna be a just man baby
will I mess up and fall short yeah maybe
but I'ma keep me head up and get up
and when it comes to getting mine I'll never let up


Verse 3:

When I be stuck in the 5 o'clock gridlock
work, school, and family leaves me little time for hip hop
I used to think that all I needed was a funky flow
if so this album couda been done like six months ago
but everything happens for a reason so I stayed biz
pushing Grown Man Grizz through the summer season
It's crazy cause it feel like my schedules getting tighter now
so I try to Jay-Z my rhymes and not write'em down
that game is changing I can contest to that one
the CD's go wood but the ringtones go platinum
I try to pace myself like a horse since I started
and not end up with a Porsche parked in front of an apartment
you hustling backwards ain't the life I wanna lead
where I'm buying what I want but I'm struggling for what I need
see I'm trying to be a mogul, not stuck being local
so I politic with those who are upwardly mobile


Hook:

I'm tryna be a just man, I'm not perfect and I got flaws
See I might stumble and I might fall
but I'ma still get up
still get up
still get up
