I Don’t ’Go Looking for Trouble, Cause Trouble Finds Me

I don’t go looking for trouble,
Cause trouble finds me
But I don’t live in a damn bubble
And I only live for me.

I’d rather see my name on a marquee
Than on a rap sheet and under lock and key.
I’d rather make sweet music to my lady
Than be some jim shady
And I ain’t going to be a victim of the streets
Cause I’d rather be under satin sheets.

I ain’t no Jimmy Dean or Jimmy Hendricks
And I can’t sing like Eddie Kendricks.

I know I’ll never win the daily double
But I don’t go looking for trouble
I am here for the world to see
And I gotta be free.

Sometime I have to admit
The streets are calling me
But I can not succumb or submit
Cause I ain’t trying to be in no shit.

At times, I just roll with the punches
And other times I’ve just got to let it be.
And when the pressure of the roads
Get too much for me
I know I can’t afford
To go all out and let stupid stop me.
Cause I ain’t trying to be under lock and key.

I ain’t no Jimmy Dean or Hendricks
And I can’t sing like Eddie Kendricks

I know I will never win the daily double.
And I don’t have nothing to show for my troubles
But I know trouble
When I see it.
And I ain’t trying to be in no shit.
And I’ll never submit to the trapings of the streets.
I’d rather listen to my beats.

I know I’ll never win the daily double
I’ve got to follow my heart
Follow the cards,
And play the hand that I was dealt
Cause I now know how the others felt.

But I ain’t no Jimmy Dean or Jimmy Hendricks
And I can’t sing like Eddie Kendricks.
And none of the rest.
I just have to get the shit off of my chest
But I don’t go looking for trouble,
Cause trouble finds me.

I ain’t no Jimmy Dean or Hendricks
And I can’t sing like Eddie Kendricks
