Heard 'em Say lyrics

Artist: Kanye West

Song Title: Heard 'em Say

Mr. West

And I heard 'em say
Nuthin's ever promised tomorrow, today
From the Chi, like Tim, it's the Hardaway
So this is in the name of love like Robert say
Before you ask me to go get a job today
Can I at least get a raise on the minimum wage?
And I know the government administered aids
So I guess we just pray like the minister say

Allah o Akhbar just throw in some hot cars
'Cause the things we see on the screen is not ours
But these niggas from the hood so these dreams not far
Where I'm from the dope boys is the rock stars
But they can't cop cars without seeing cop cars
I guess they want us all behind bars, I know it

And I heard 'em say
Nuthin's ever promised tomorrow, today
And I heard 'em say
Nuthin's ever promised tomorrow, today
(Nuthin's ever promised tomorrow, today)
But we'll find a way
(And nuthin' lasts forever but be honest, babe)
(It hurts but it may be the only way)

They say people in your life are seasons
And anything that happen is for a reason
And niggas gun-clappin' and keep to squeezin'
And gran' keep prayin' and keep believin'
In Jesus and one day that she'll see him
'Til then in walk his footsteps and try to be him
The Devil is alive, I feel him breathin'

Claimin' money is the key, so keep on dreamin'
And put them lottery tickets just to tease us
My Aunt Pam can't put them cigarettes down
So now, my lil' cousin smokin' them cigarettes, now
His job try to claim that he too niggerish, now
Is it 'cause his skin blacker than licorice, now?
I can't figure it out, I'm stickin' around

And I heard 'em say
Nuthin's ever promised tomorrow, today
And I heard 'em say
Nuthin's ever promised tomorrow, today
(Nuthin's ever promised tomorrow, today)
But we'll find a way
(And nuthin' lasts forever but be honest, babe)
(It hurts, but it might be the only way)

'Cause every worthless word we get more far away
And nuthin's ever promised tomorrow, today
And nuthin' lasts forever, but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way
