    Yeah it's magic
    Uhh, Jay-Z and Lenny Kravitz
    And it's a Heavy D product you bastards
    Come on
    Ha hey yo stop playin man
    This is real serious
    Ha (It's the rock) yeah yo

    Post Postatono, Hov' hangin with Bono
    You too can live like Salvatore Ferragamo
    And you too can cool out poolside after Delano
    And you too flow like you was out of your mind yo
    And who knew dude who loved apple pies from McDonalds
    Would soon be the boss of the Big Apple, ya know
    And who knew dude would play ball for the NBA
    Would make a mistake on the who know it stayed still in the way
    Who knew that would be his last shot, who drew up that play
    They giveth and they taketh life is cool that way
    But even a broken clock is right two times a day
    You could have turned Guns into Roses like two times today
    Now there's something you gotta say two times to Jay
    I got my shades on waiting for the sun to shine my way
    Got my boom box, suntan lotion waiting for action
    Its safe when you play with skills, good luck could happen
    Let's go

    (C'mon) It's the Roc [repeat x4]
    That's right

    It got to hot so I jumped off in this rap shit
    You got it criss-crossed ain't no turning me backwards
    Too many District Attorneys concerned with the actions
    Of one individual he's criminally attached
    I turned in all my rap chips I'm earning my bachelors
    While dating all the models and actresses
    I'm learning all the potholes in every single barrio
    Trying not to mess up my axis kid
    On the road to riches through trafficking
    Through rappining whatever's happening
    Roc-a-wear I'm the young black Ralph Lauren
    Every time I get out they put me right back in
    The Michael Corleone of the microphone
    The Michelangelo of flow I paint pictures with poems
    Have you ever known moss like a rolling stone
    Case the Grim Reaper visits my home, nigga I'm gone c'mon

    (C'mon) It's the Roc [x3]
    (C'mon) That's right (C'mon)

    [Lenny Kravitz: repeat x2]
    Life is all about Guns and Roses
    Bittersweet like friends and foes
    Some get lucky and some get chosen
    Just like life, Guns and Roses

    More Guns then Roses, foes is, visibly shook of the invisible book, let's go
    Flowers need water to grow, it gotta rain
    And in order to experience joy you need pain
    Every time a baby is born, somebody slain
    You know the saying, somebody's lose is another's gain
    The sun comes out when the water goes down the drain
    When the rainbow in the cloud comes out we do it again
    Everything evens up, you just wait
    Even a garbage can gets a steak
    You ain't even a garbage can you have faith
    But when it turns your way before it turns away
    To turn that into something you gotta learn from Jay
    You will get return in your investment if attention you pay let's go

    (C'mon) It's the Roc [x3]
    (C'mon) That's right (C'mon)

    [Lenny Kravitz: repeat x2]
    Life is all about Guns and Roses
    Bittersweet like friends and foes
    Some get lucky and some get chosen
    Just like life, Guns and Roses

    Life is all about Guns and Roses
