[Bun B]
Now everybody like to tell you about how grown they are
How they got they shit together and how ‘on’ they are
How they got all their priorities lined up
And focused on the future ’cause they made they mind up
Well I’m here to tell ya, it’s easier said than done
‘Bout as easy as try’na take bread from Bun
You can try to make plans but they hard to stick to
Not to mention these haters out here try’na trick you
Soon as you hot, they say, “freeze”
Soon as you cold, they raise up the degrees
I’m like please, take a second to think about it but not too many
Can’t get time back, they won’t give you any
Look back at all the time you had and I bet you gon’ look at all the time you fucked off with regret
All the days you coulda’ went from good to great
So while there’s still time left it ain’t too late for you to grow up

[Bun B]
When I was young, I was crazy and wild (Crazy and wild)
But now I’m grown and not a god damn child (God damn child)
‘Cause time is passin’ and we turnin’ the page (Turnin’ the page)
So, man, you gotta start acting your age and grow up
(‘Cause man it’s time to grow up)
See, man, it’s time to grow up (For real, it’s time to grow up)
‘Cause you been fuckin’ off with too much wrong
For too damn long, it’s time to show up (For real)
So be a woman or a man and grow up

[8Ball]
Yeah, growin’ up, no Pop to show me
Or tell me how to navigate properly
Stoppin’ me, opticals came constantly
Try’na hold onto … rope consciously
I know for sure the greatest shit in front of me
Inspiration for the ones that came after me
First to say I never did it all correctly
Fuck-ups I made still won’t let me sleep good
When a nigga can’t eat good
Shit I did back when everybody ate good
Playful, I was runnin’ with the hateful
Instead of sittin’ down, nigga, bein’ grateful
Learn from it, take notes and earn with it
Be families and don’t waste your turn with it
Have fun with it whatever come your way
And when it get real, young nigga, don’t play

[Bun B]
When I was young, I was crazy and wild (Crazy and wild)
But now I’m grown and not a god damn child (God damn child)
‘Cause time is passin’ and we turnin’ the page (Turnin’ the page)
So, man, you gotta start acting your age and grow up
(‘Cause man it’s time to grow up) See, man, it’s time to grow up
(For real, it’s time to grow up)
‘Cause you been fuckin’ off with too much wrong
For too damn long, it’s time to show up (For real)
So be a woman or a man and grow up

[MJG]
Now either you a rookie or you pro-up
You try’na win the race or you out here try’na slow up
Drink up or throw up, let the air out or blow up
Travel, get outta your city do some more stuff
Now before I ever go broke I’mma hoe-up
That mean go get a hoe that’s gon’ help me get some dough up
A nigga get wrong, we gon’ leave him ten toe up
So every time I needed her, she broke her neck to show up
Pimp tight, I mean I’m try’na life the most of life that I can live
Zoom in and get a close-up
Maybe I can be an inspiration to some more
The people of the world make the whole world grow up
It’s seems like for every other drink that I pour-up
It’s for a dead loved one and we don’t even know what for
Alotta loose ends left to sew up
God needed them, another angel had to go up

[Bun B]
When I was young, I was crazy and wild (Crazy and wild)
But now I’m grown and not a god damn child (God damn child)
‘Cause time is passin’ and we turnin’ the page (Turnin’ the page)
So, man, you gotta start acting your age and grow up
(‘Cause man it’s time to grow up)
See, man, it’s time to grow up (For real, it’s time to grow up)
‘Cause you been fuckin’ off with too much wrong
For too damn long, it’s time to show up (For real)
So be a woman or a man and grow up
