My Prerogative

Get busy
Everybody's talkin' all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live
I don't need permission, make my own decisions
That's my prerogative

They say I'm crazy, I really don't care
That's my prerogative
They say I'm nasty, but I don't give a damn
Gettin' girls is how I live
Some ask me questions, why am I so real
But they don't understand me
I really don't know the deal
About a brother, trying hard to make it right
Not long ago, before I win this fight, sing

Everybody's talkin' all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live (Tell me why)
I don't need permission, make my own decisions
That's my prerogative, it's my prerogative (It's my prerogative)

It's the way that I wanna live (It's my prerogative)
I can do just what I feel (It's my prerogative)
No one can tell me what to do (It's my prerogative)
Cause what I'm doin', I'm doin' for you now

Don't get me wrong, I'm really not zooped
Ego trips is not my thing
All these strange relationships
Really gets me down, I see nothin' wrong
With spreadin' myself around, sing

Everybody's talkin' all this stuff about me (yeah)
Why don't they just let me live (Tell me why)
I don't need permission (I don't need) Make my own decisions (My own decisions)
That's my prerogative, it's my prerogative (It's my prerogative)

I can do what I wanna do (It's my prerogative)
Truly live my life (It's my prerogative)
I'm doin' it just for you (It's my prerogative)
Tell me, tell me

Why can't I live my life (Live my life)
Without all of the things that people say (Oh oh)

Yo tell it, kick it like this, oh no no

I can do what I wanna do, me and you
Together, together, together, together, together

Everybody's talkin' all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live
I don't need permission (I don't need permission) Make my own decisions
That's my prerogative

What is this a bizzit that I can't have money in my pocket
And people not talk about me
This world is a trip, I don't know what's going on these days
Got this person over here talking about me, this person
Hey, listen, lemme tell you something
This is my prerogative, I can do what I want to do

I made this money, you didn't
Right Ted? We outta here

It's my, it's my, it's my, it's my, it's my
My my my my my my my my my my my my my

It's my prerogative
