    Lyrics

    Life
    I wonder
    Will it take me under
    I don't know

    Imagine smoking weed in the streets without cops harassin'
    Imagine going to court with no trial
    Lifestyle cruising blue behind my waters
    No welfare supporters, more conscious of the way we raise our daughters
    Days are shorter, nights are colder
    Feeling like life is over, these snakes strike like a cobra
    The world's hot my son got not
    Evidently, it's elementary, they want us all gone eventually
    Troopin' out of state for a plate, knowledge
    If coke was cooked without the garbage we'd all have the top dollars
    Imagine everybody flashin', fashion
    Designer clothes, lacing your click up with diamond vogues
    Your people holdin' dough, no parole
    No rubbers, go in raw imagine, law with no undercovers
    Just some thoughts for the mind
    I take a glimpse into time
    Watch the blimp read, "The World Is Mine"

    If I ruled the world, imagine that
    I'd free all my sons, I love 'em love 'em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls
    Could it be, if you could be mine we'd both shine
    If I ruled the world
    Still livin' for today, in these last days and times

    The way to be, paradise like relaxin', Black, Latino and Anglo-Saxon
    Armani, exchange the reins
    Cash, Lost Tribe of Shabazz, free at last
    Brand new whips to crash then we laugh in the ill'er path
    The Villa house is for the crew, how we do
    Trees for breakfast, dime sexes and Benz stretches
    So many years of depression make me vision
    The better livin', type of place to raise kids in
    Open they eyes to the lies, history's told foul
    But I'm as wise as the old owl, plus the Gold Child
    Seeing things like I was controlling, click rollin'
    Trickin' six digits on kicks and still holdin'
    Trips to Paris, I civilized every savage
    Gimme one shot I turn trife life to lavish
    Political prisoner set free, stress free
    No work release purple M3's and jet skis
    Feel the wind breeze in West Indies
    I'd make Coretta Scott-King mayor o'the cities and reverse themes to Willies
    It sounds foul but every girl I meet to go downtown
    I'd open every cell in Attica send em to Africa

    If I ruled the world, imagine that
    I'd free all my sons, I love 'em love 'em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls
    Could it be, if you could be mine we'd both shine
    If I ruled the world
    Still livin' for today, in these last days and times

    And then we'll walk right up to the sun
    Hand in hand
    We'll walk right up to the sun
    We won't land
    We'll walk right up to the sun
    Hand in hand
    We'll walk right up to the sun
    We won't land

    You'd love to hear the story how the thugs live in worry
    Duck down in car seats, heat's mandatory
    Runnin' from Jake, gettin' chased, hunger for papes
    These are the breaks, many mistakes go down out of state
    Wait, I had to let it marinate we carry weight
    Tryin' to get laced, flip the ace stack, the safe
    Millionaire plan to keep the gat with the cock hammer
    Makin' moves in Atlanta, back and forth scrambler
    'Cause you could have all the chips, be poor or rich
    Still nobody want a nigga havin' shit
    If I ruled the world and everything in it, sky's the limit
    I push a Q-4-5 infinite
    It wouldn't be no such thing as jealousies or be felony
    Strictly living longevity to the destiny
    I thought I'd never see, but reality struck
    Better find out before your time's out, what the fuck

    If I ruled the world, imagine that
    I'd free all my sons, I love 'em love 'em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls
    Could it be, if you could be mine we'd both shine
    If I ruled the world
    Still livin' for today, in these last days and times

    If I ruled the world, if I ruled, if I ruled
    I'd free all my sons, if I ruled, if I ruled
    Black diamonds and pearls, black diamonds, black diamonds
    Could it be, if you could be mine, we'd both shine
    If I ruled the world
    Still livin' for today, in these last days and times

    If I ruled the world, if I ruled, if I ruled
    I'd free all my sons, black diamonds
    I love em love em baby
    Black diamonds and pearls, if I ruled
    If I ruled the world

    If I ruled the world
    I love em love em baby
