Nasty C – How Many Times lyrics

How many times do you think I fell?
How many times did I go through Hell?
When they told me that I, I, I, I, I, I
I wouldn’t be nothing
How many times did you think I cried?
They were holding me down and I kept my smile
When they told me that I, I, I, I, I, I
I wouldn’t be nothing

I’m used to not having nobody bother
Suddenly we all came from the bottom
Now I’m supposed to share my blessings with all them
Like I never earned my stripes like I bought ’em, and when
When shit got hard, I got harder, and when
When the money got small, I stood taller
I played all my finesse cards right ’cause I’m a charmer
I get that from my father and a couple step mamas
I can’t even rest now I’m staying out till morning
Peeking out my window, I’m looking out for the stalkers
Gotta stay alive at all cost ’cause we young black bosses
If I had been broke another year, I woulda lost it!
Cautious, working hard, bitch
I’m in my pocket, I’m in my case and I’m in my office
I’m still on my raw shit
With all my stars on floss, bitch
I found my life when it was the darkest

How many times do you think I fell?
How many times did I go through Hell?
When they told me that I, I, I, I, I, I
I wouldn’t be nothing
How many times did you think I cried?
They were holding me down and I kept my smile
When they told me that I, I, I, I, I, I
I wouldn’t be nothing

Where they ay? Abekho
When you hop inside the ride, it’s like ngishi’s impepho
All my hands inside my pockets? Ku gcwele izesto
I told only I decide if I’m special
If you don’t see who run it now, get your specs, bro
I’m humble as a fucking child, I’m on they neck though
I clean up in Balenciaga and made a mess though

Made a mess
Made a mess
Made a mess
Made a mess
Made a mess
Made a mess
Made a mess
Yeah

How many times do you think I fell?
How many times did I go through Hell?
When they told me that I, I, I, I, I, I
I wouldn’t be nothing
How many times did you think I cried?
They were holding me down and I kept my smile
When they told me that I, I, I, I, I, I
I wouldn’t be nothing
