Why I Act The Way I Act
Rapadamus

(Intro)
Daddy was an absentee
Momma was on crack
Although I love the both of them
They didnít love me back
I grew up the hard way
Ya see thatís just a fact
So maybe that explains
Why I act the way I act
They say if you donít learn from it
History just repeats
So I spent my adolescent years
Runniní in the streets
I was selling dope
Where the junkies came to meet
And Iíve seen homies gunned down
RIght in front of my feet

†( 1st Verse)
Ya had to watch yoí back
Even as a little kid
Depending on of course
The people you hung with
I was with a fast crowd
Guess it was obvious
They only worshiped money
And no one did they trust
I learned to be like Ďem too
And do the things I saw them do
Like being loyal to a crew
While hoping no one got to you
Especially someone that you knew
Oh youíd be paranoid too
If you went through
What Iíve been through

(Hook)
Why I act the way I act?
Is that a question or attack?
Why did I give up selling smack?
How come I turned to selling crack?
Hereís a word to the wise
Donít take the time to analyze
I have my reasons and besides
Iím not the kind who confides
(2nd Verse)
Maybe it was preordained
From the very start
Who knew that Iíd turn
Drug dealing into an art
Or have an ozone layer size
Hole inside my heart
That can make it very difficult
For an EKG to chart
I had to make a living
So I donít apologize
For certain aspects of my life
That you may well despise
What gives you the right
To judge me or criticize
Or determine where I go
Straight to hell or if I rise

(Hook)
Why I act the way I act?
Is that a question or attack?
Why did I give up selling smack?
How come I turned to hustling crack?
Hereís a word to the wise
Donít take the time to analyze
I have my reasons and besides
Iím not the kind who confides

(3rd Verse)
Iím a victim of circumstance
A brother from the hood
Who decided to take a chance
Because I thought I should
Do whatever I had to do
Almost anybody would
Come up with an escape plan
For their greater good
You donít have to agree with me
Or the methods that I chose
You donít have my history
As everybody knows
See you didnít have to struggle
From the depths from which I rose
And you donít have to constantly
Make sure youíre on your toes

(Hook)
Why I act the way I act?
Is that a question or attack?
Why did I give up selling smack?
How come I turned to hustling crack?
Hereís a word to the wise
Donít take the time to analyze
I have my reasons and besides
Iím not the kind who confides

(Outro)
Iíve got lots of cash machines
To count the wages of my sins
Iím a man of means by all means
And I have lots of ends
†I drive all around this town
In a chauffeured Mercedes Benz
Though you can view me if you like
Through a magnifying lens
And Iíve beat more court cases
Than Jackie Robinson
Has stolen bases
Iíve made mistakes but keep your places
Thatís why pencils have erasers
And some folks take their drinks
With chasers

(Hook)
Why I act the way I act?
Is that a question or attack?
Why did I give up selling smack?
How come I turned to hustling crack?
Hereís a word to the wise
Donít take the time to analyze
I have my reasons and besides
Iím not the kind who confides
