Play this song
[Chorus]
Had to learn a little bit, grow a little bit
Realize on the way up
That I was taught so many lessons
Yeah, yeah, I learned so many lessons, yes
I’m living proof that if you don’t go through shit
When you come up fast
Everything that you work for won’t seem to last
Man, I learned so many lessons
Yeah, I learned so many lessons, yes
Learned so many lessons
[Verse 1]
Every day that you wake up (Wake up)
Make sure you pray before startin’ your day ’cause (Day)
Tomorrow ain’t promised (No)
Today is a gift, so don’t waste it away
Call and tell someone you love ’em
Show somebody that you been thinkin’ of ’em
It ain’t about romance, it could really be your last chance
Turn off your cellphone (Oh, oh)
Give yourself sometime to think and be alone
How can you be about your business
Followin’ niggas with no business
So many people in show business got nothin’ to show for it (No, no)
Write out your dreams and just go for it (Go for it)
Fill up your pitcher before you can pour from it
[Pre-Chorus]
Always listen to your first mind
Never tell no one, it’s your time
‘Cause the spectators watchin’ you grind
Really hopin’ that you don’t get more shine than ’em
Those kinds of friends are really your enemies
All of these little philosophies
Took a minute to get into me, and that’s ’cause
[Chorus]
Had to learn a little bit, grow a little bit
Realize on the way up
That I was taught so many lessons
Yeah, yeah, I learned so many lessons, yes
I’m living proof that if you don’t go through shit
When you come up fast
Everything that you work for won’t seem to last
Man, I learned so many lessons
Yeah, I learned so many lessons, yes
Learned so many lessons
[Verse 2]
You know the ones who really down for you
Are the ones who feel you when you down
Look out for them niggas who playin’ on ya
Loyalty ain’t nowhere to be found
Fuck with no one who’s afraid of
Callin’ you out on your bullshit
That’s the ones who showin’ real love
That’s the niggas you can build with
Always keep your word (Oh, oh)
Only thing you really got here on this Earth
Don’t let no one treat you less than what you’re worth
Being selfish ain’t the same as puttin’ you first
That’s the first law of nature (Oh)
Survival of the fittest (Oh)
Know that your haters love to hate you
Really don’t matter what it is
[Pre-Chorus]
Always listen to your first mind
Never tell no one, it’s your time
‘Cause the spectators watchin’ you grind (You grind)
Really hopin’ that you don’t get more shine than ’em (Them)
Those kinds of friends are really your enemies (Enemies)
All of these little philosophies (Yeah)
Took a minute to get into me, and that’s ’cause
[Chorus]
Had to learn a little bit, grow a little bit
Realize on the way up
That I was taught so many lessons
Yeah, yeah, I learned so many lessons, yes
I’m living proof that if you don’t go through shit
When you come up fast
Everything that you work for won’t seem to last
Man, I learned so many lessons
Yeah, I learned so many lessons, yes
Learned so many lessons
