"Thinking of a masterplan / 'cause ain't nothing but sweat inside my hands / So, I dig into my pocket - all my money's spent / So I dig deeper, but still coming up with lint / So I start my mission / leave my residence, thinking how can I get some dead presidents / I need money / I use to be a stick-up kid / so I think of all the devious things I did / I use to roll up: 'This is a hold-up! Ain't nothing funny! Stop smiling; be still, don't nothing move but the money.' / But now I've learned to earn because I'm righteous / I feel great, so maybe I might just / search for a nine-to-five / If I try, then maybe I'll stay alive / So I walk up the street / whistling this / feeling out of place 'cause man do I miss / a pen and a paper, a stereo a tape, me and Eric B. and a nice big plate of fish - which is my favorite dish, but without no money it's still a wish / 'Cause I don't like to dream about getting paid / so I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made / So as a test to see if I've got pull / hit the studio / 'cause I'm paid in full!" - Rakim
