do your thing lyrics – queen latifah

(queen latifah)
southside, northside
eastside, westside
alright, alright
alright, we ride

(verse: 1)
ain’t the paper, that makes me daner
i just see the strangers they look at me stranger
they all give me more lip
so i give ya more music, more smackin’
i stepped up to salary cappin’
p*ssin’ traffic and lookin’ what happened
see how life takes a turn (uh huh)
more paper earned
always poof, the case’s adjourned
i am what i am, i come from north
so crème de la crème (uh yeah)
and specially when, ya pray for my downfall
that’s why i try to stay from round y’all (let’s go)
till my days in the dark, they find me (let’s go)
like me the maids when i park and i’ll be
still, doin’ me, still so beautifully
i ain’t brushin’ off haters nothin’ true to me

(chorus: mario winans)
go and do your thing
cuz people will talk
baby it’s the way
the way that you are
keep your head up to the sky
confidence high
they’re the ones that hate you
cuz they’re the ones who make you
go and do your thing

(verse: 2)
yo, yo, yo
now just imagine how the world’ll be witchu cruisin’
sacked down, popped the blouse, get girls aroused
popped out, shot the brows
knocked the clothes and copped the house
could it be that you feel you need me?
huh, you love the way i flow cuz it comes to easy
when life imitate artex where the hatin’ start
you gotta love dat, try to stay good at
who knew i’d come this far
who is this woman, a movie star?
my moms always told me i come from god
and the stress that come from y’all keep taking
you be there keep waiting
keep trying be patient
y’all wish i can stand united
and really fall in love in hearts provided

(chorus: mario winans)
go and do your thing
cuz people will talk
baby it’s the way
the way that you are
keep your head up to the sky
confidence high
they’re the ones that hate you
cuz they’re the ones who make you
go and do your thing

(verse: 3)
lately, it seems to me
that people ain’t what they seem to be
they all want me torn up
i know there’s snakes in the gr*ss
so i pay my staff, to keep the lawns cut
i see all the drama you bringin’
i combine that with posit thinking
i’m me till i’m old and grey
when that day comes
i’ma teach my daughters do be the same way
i am the way i am, i’m from the hood
so crème de le crème
and specially when, ya pray for my downfall
that’s why i try to stay from round y’all (that’s why
you never keep me down
so i’ll always be around, forget about it
still doin’ it, (still doin me)
so beautifully i ain’t brushin’ off haters nothin’ true to me

(chorus: mario winans x2)
go and do your thing
cuz people will talk
baby it’s the way
the way that you are
keep your head up to the sky
confidence high
they’re the ones that hate you
cuz they’re the ones who make you
go and do your thing

(ending: mario winans)
just do your thing
cuz people gon’ hate you anyway uh
just do your thing
cuz people gonna hate you anyway uh
just do your thing y’all c’mon
can n*body stop me y’all c’mon
we yellow city y’all
we gon’ keep doin’ our thing, keep doin’ our thing
