Born Not to Know
Tony Toni Toné Lyrics


Put all your men in a average city
Had a share of problems don't you know
Just the same the city had too

Time after time, my mama told
There's a lotta things that you know
But there's a whole lot more you need to know?

Money, have your own
Friends, just for fun
Drugs, don't indulge
Sex with the right person?

Work all your day
Crime does not pay
Love don't apply
Live, to live you must die?

And I can't be late 'cause I was born not to know
Things are getting crazy, I ain't getting lazy
I was born not to know

Now since I've grown, I've learned a lot more
The city hasn't changed a bit since
Doesn't mean I have to live like this

I still can recall what my mother told me
There was a lot of things that I knew
But the ones my mother said were true

Money, had my own
Friends, we had fun
Drugs, didn't indulge
Sex, had the right person

Work, all my day
Crime did not pay
Love did not apply
Live, now I live but I gotta die

And I can't be late 'cause I was born not to know
I ain't gonna make a fuss, I like the back of the bus
'Cause I was born not to know

I was born not to know
I was born not to know
I was born not to know

? There's a lotta things that you know
But there's a whole lot more you need to know?
? Money, have your own
Friends, just for fun
Drugs, don't indulge
Sex with the right person?
? Work all your day
Crime does not pay
Love don't apply
Live, to live you must die?


And I can't be late 'coz I was born not to know
Things are getting crazy, I ain't getting lazy
I was born not to know

It's a joy to see this, still sounds so good. My Mother's favorite song by the 3 T's, she was such a fan, as much as I was. I love "For the Love of You," along with many others of course. Thank you guys for helping to create such great memories, I will always cherish in my heart, both of my parents have passed on. Thanks for helping me smile again.
