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 s*** 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, b****
I’m in my pocket, I’m in my case and I’m in my office
I’m still on my raw s***
With all my stars on floss, b****
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 f****** 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
