little brother lyrics – hootie & the blowfish

how you gonna say what you can and can’t do
sitting in the crib, parked in front of the tube
you’re mad at the world like she owe you
what you think opportunity’s gonna come looking for you?

not a d*mn thing changed
you’re just another football waiting to be tossed in the game
you’re flossing again
you talk a good game, but you’re still trying hard to maintain

little brother, a ship can’t sail without the water
the world could be yours if you want her
but you gotta be willing to go out and get it
when you get it, keep winning

everyday you’re out slinging that thing
no worries or cares of what your mama may say
trying to get what you want in your life
the cars, the clothes, the hos, the ice

not a d*mn thing changed
you’re still another football waiting to be tossed in the game
you’re flossing again
you talk a good game but you’re still struggling hard to maintain

little brother, a ship can’t sail without the water, no
the world could be yours if you want her
but you gotta be willing to go out and get it
when you get it, keep winning

little brother, no, a ship can’t sail without the water
the world could be yours if you want her
but you gotta be willing to go out and get it
when you get it, keep winning

everything you want could be yours
if you were just to try
all the troubles that you feel will fade away
like shooting stars across the sky

all the dreams i hope you feel
soon, someday, shall be fulfilled
time is moving rapidly
don’t let it p*ss you by, yeah

little brother, no, a ship can’t sail without the water
the world could be yours if you want her
but you gotta be willing to go out and get it
when you get it, keep winning

little brother, no, a ship can’t sail without the water
the world could be yours if you want her
but you gotta be willing to go out and get it
when you get it, keep winning

little brother, no, a ship can’t sail without the water
the world could be yours if you want her
but you gotta be willing to go out and get it
when you get it, keep winning

little brother, no, a ship can’t sail without the water
