      About "This Is Us"

      Lyrics for LL Cool J - "This Is Us"

      I'ma give all why y'all something, word up
      Word up, all my live cats out there gonna love me for this one
      They goin' be like,
      "Yo you, you need to listen to that joint L made"
      Word up
      That's the joint you gotta listen to, why know what I mean?
      Check this out why y'all

      I got the key that fits the lock of a real dog's mind be
      The answer to the question chicks ask most the time see
      Why my man cheat and give some bitch my heat?
      Slap me one day then Sunday he's so sweet?
      To me and mine, this nigga's hard to define
      Cause he beefing when he broke but he arrogant when he shine
      It fucks you up, you wonder if you wasting time
      Mention marriage, he lit a Dutch and peeped out the blinds
      What different niggas feels in they hearts is scary
      I used to say shit like,
      "see man baby, you should be honored to share me"
      She used to throw the cakes up, plus the burger was hairy
      I used to have to think of shit to keep 'em coming, you niggas feel me?
      Baby or no baby I wasn't loyal or nothing
      Just me and my niggas on tour, fronting and hitting something
      Red lipstick prints all over my drawers
      Oh you want to be an actress huh? Well my movie's hardcore
      Like Dungeons and Dragons, getting brains in a Benz wagon
      Step out, jeans sagging, crew laughing
      Getting blazed by the fiend for ten bones a piece
      Nothing but the dog in me needing to be released
      This is us

      [Chorus]
      You know that I do, the best that I can
      But you don't seem to love me no more, no more
      I try to please you, and be your man
      But you don't seem to love me no more, no more

      The flip side of the coin, what team you want to join?
      You in The Tunnel every Sunday exposing your tenderloins
      In every rap cat's face, with some ol' flirty shit to say
      Need to go home, wash your kids up, and put your tits away
      Me and my clique in motion, champagne and Alize
      Got your mind bubbling crazy, want to flip Cool J
      Spend your last on your hairdo, but you ain't save a dime
      To put your child through college baby, now have you?
      Go get a job interview, your bad-ass kids a curfew
      And skip that "Bills Bills" shit broads is goin' through
      I know this prostitute who said that life ain't cute
      Child born with a destiny only God can dispute
      Players giggle and laugh, flashing gats and cash
      My dogs don't care about you Boo, they like your ass
      Told me if I call and your man answer, ask for L
      So he can say, "No L live here," our code is ill
      Tell him you about to catch a flick with Sherell
      Plotting and scheming in the shower, masturbating on the cell
      The neighborhood hustler, that cat we all know
      That nigga we grew up with, son from next do'
      My dream was to flow and escape the hell below
      But the demons in my life set fire to my dough
      I thought about murder, I vowed my revenge
      Like the devil's pumping hate through my heart with a syringe
      This is us

      [Chorus]

      They say a man goin' be a man, but that's only half the scenario
      You nag a cat, you giving him a license to fuck a hoe
      When a man come home late, he want his girl to say hello
      Not hear all that bullshit, bout, "Nigga where you go?"
      Fried chicken ready, t-shirt and panties at the stove
      Messages written down, blunt rolled ready to go
      Give me a hug, not too long, give me space
      When a cat got issues don't need you all up in his face
      Rub your breasts, kick back, smile a little
      If it's raining outside, chill, listen to the drizzle
      Now kiss my chest, call me Superman
      Pull down my boxers by the Calvin Klein band
      Wash it, enjoy the flavor, I return the favor
      This behavior, should save ya
      From me all night freaking, with a nineteen year-old
      Half naked Puerto Rican, creamy ass leaking
      Every man will agree, when she nag it's killing me
      I don't always want to talk about how the world is shitting on me
      I sip some Alize and meditate the pain away
      And get in my own zone where I want to be alone for solo
      Reminisce with photos
      And missed opportunities to make some dough flow, you know?
      Chill, relax baby, support me from the background
      Believe in my dreams, instead, you and your girls sat 'round
      Complain about, who's trading ass for cash
      If there ain't no trust then just us can't last
      This is us, I know you feeling that
      Think about that shit, word up

      [Chorus]

      Your man, your man, your man
      Everything we've been through yeah
      All the places we've been yeah
      Just don't know if I'll be the same again, ha
      Ever since you walked all all over me, ha
      And even if we bring this back together, ha
      You know it won't be the same, no no no no
      No no no no no, ha
      Oh I, I, baby I, tried to be your man
      Can't you hear me? Can't you hear me?
