Be your friend

Since I ain't got nothing

Left 2 lose

Got u where I want u

Motherfucker

Don't u try 2 move

CHORUS (as above)

Up on the ladder they sing

How high?

Does a brother have 2 climb

2 touch the light

Won't u take me up there

With u? U said u would

No one ever could shake

That ladder like I could

BRIDGE (as above)

So I wait

CHORUS (as above)
