Can't Tell Me Nothing
Kanye West Lyrics


La, la, la-la
Wait 'til I get my money right

I had a dream I could buy my way to heaven
When I awoke, I spent that on a necklace
I told God I'd be back in a second
Man, it's so hard not to act reckless
To whom much is given, much is tested
Get arrested, guess until he get the message
I feel the pressure, under more scrutiny
And what'd I do? Act more stupidly
Bought more jewelry, more Louis V
My mama couldn't get through to me
The drama, people suing me
I'm on TV talking like it's just you and me
I'm just sayin' how I feel, man
I ain't one of the Cosby's, I ain't go to Hillman
I guess the money should've changed him
I guess I should've forgot where I came from

La, la, la-la
Wait 'til I get my money right
La, la, la-la
Then you can't tell me nothin' right?
Excuse me, was you sayin' somethin'?
Uh-uh, you can't tell me nothin'
(Ha-ha) you can't tell me nothin'
Uh, uh, you can't tell me nothin'

Let up the suicide doors
This is my life homie, you decide yours
I know that Jesus died for us
But I couldn't tell you who decide wars
So I parallel double-parked that motherfucker sideways
Old folks talking 'bout, "Back in my day"
But homie, this is my day
Class started two hours ago, oh, am I late?
No, I already graduated
And you can live through anything if Magic made it
They say I talk with so much emphasis
Ooh, they so sensitive
Don't ever fix your lips like collagen
Then say something when you gon' end up apologin'
Let me know if it's a problem then
Aight man, holla then

La, la, la-la
Wait 'til I get my money right
La, la, la-la
Then you can't tell me nothin' right?
Excuse me, was you sayin' somethin'?
Uh-uh, you can't tell me nothin'
(Ha-ha) you can't tell me nothin'
Uh, uh, you can't tell me nothin'

Let the champagne splash
Let that man get cash, let that man get past
He don't even stop to get gas
If he can move through the rumors, he can drive off of fumes 'cause
How he move in a room full of no's?
How he stay faithful in a room full of hoes?
Must be the pharaohs, he in tune with his soul
So when he buried in a tomb full of gold
Treasure, what's your pleasure?
Life is a, uh, depending how you dress her
So if the Devil wear Prada, Adam Eve wear nada
I'm in between but way more fresher
With way less effort
'Cause when you try hard, that's when you die hard
Your homies lookin' like, "Why God"
When they reminisce over you, my God

La, la, la-la
Wait 'til I get my money right
La, la, la-la
Then you can't tell me nothin' right?
Excuse me, was you sayin' somethin'?
Uh-uh, you can't tell me nothin'
(Ha-ha) you can't tell me nothin'
Uh, uh, you can't tell me nothin'

La, la, la-la
Wait 'til I get my money right
La, la, la-la
Then you can't tell me nothin' right?

(I'm serious, nigga)
(Ayy)
(Yeah)
(Ha-ha)
(Yeah, yeah)
(You know I'm serious, nigga)
(I got money)

Hebrew26commandments power!

@Alexander Figueroa 3 meanings

1. He had a dream he wanted to go to heaven or be accepted by God ... So he blindly bought what he thought would bring him closer to God but was really a empty purchase of no value .... The cross ... A diamond Jesus piece .... Many people think wearing or getting a tattoo of Jesus, god, or bible scripture immediately brings them closer to God or his covenant ...when really if you study the bible it's a foolish gesture of faking your love for him .... You don't buy gods loyalty in riches .... You live it and follow it thru the bible ..... Kanye believe buying a symbol of Jesus means he's good to go ... When really it's not ... Living Jesus is the way ...

2. He's saying he sold his soul .... He had a dream of getting heaven on earth by doing a deal with the devil ... Too awaken to his necklace or riches he receives thru his deal with Satan ..... Getting his heaven or earth thru money and power was too him his idea of " heaven " ...... Not knowing heaven by God is much more worth the wait ....

3. He could be talking about signing with Jay Z and Roc nation and having his heaven on earth thru money and power with his deal ....... His dream was to get signed and become rich.... Now he's awaken to his roc chain as his receipt of heaven on earth .....

Deep lyrics by Ye ... especially for 2008 ..

Especially “I told god I’d be back in a second, man it’s so hard not to act reckless.” They played that part a few times during the doc when ye was wilding but he still ended up going back to god like he said.

This is the song I listen to in my hot tub in the house that's bought and paid for
