      About "Nellyville"

      Lyrics for Nelly - "Nellyville"

      [Nelly]
      Welcome to Nellyville, where all newborns get a half-a-mill'
      Sons, get the tan DeVille, soon as they can reach the wheel
      And daughters, get diamonds the size of their age - help me out now
      One year get one carat, two years get two carats

      Three years get three carats, and so on into marriage
      Nobody livin' average, everybody jang-a-lang
      Nobody livin' savage, everybody got change
      Even the paperboy deliver out the back of a Range

      It's not a game, it's a beautiful thing
      Imagine blocks and blocks of no cocaine, blocks with no gun play
      Ain't nobody shot, so ain't no news that day
      Ain't nobody snitchin', they refuse to say

      Every month, we take a vote on what the weather should be
      And if we vote it rains, know how wet we want it to be
      And if we vote it snow, know how deep we want it to get
      But the sun gon' shine 99 percent, in Nellyville

      [Chorus]
      There's no, way, I, I could explain,
      the way I feel right now
      There's no, way, I, I could explain,
      the way I feel about livin' in Nellyville

      I got that good at every gas station, pull on up
      Give me a half a ounce of that shit, fill it up
      We got straws for the bottles, outlaw the cups
      And we gon' make it happen, ain't no need for no luck

      Ain't no lotteries, no pick 3's or pick 2's
      Keep the money in your family, gamble amongst your crew
      Cause the dice gon' do what the dice goin' do
      And if you take a life, you goin' lose yours too

      Ain't no trials, it's automatic, you drop 'em right where it happen
      You do unto others if you don't want it don't do the cappin
      Think that's cool? 40 acres and a mule
      Fuck that! Nellyville - 40 acres and a pool

      Six bedrooms, full bath with a jacuzz'
      Six-car garage, pavement smooth
      Both front and back deck 'nough room to land a jet
      And you ain't reached the city, that's just the projects

      [Chorus]

      [Nelly]
      Everybody, uh, now everybody say

      Well I want to go, please let me go
      I need to go, down to Nellyville
      I need to see, what I can say
      Won't you and me, go to Nellyville
      I want to go, so bad
      I just want to go and look
      Won't you please take me on in
      I just know I gotta be there

      [Nelly]
      No expectancy, like teenage pregnancy
      And physical mental attraction your only ecstasy
      Your own destiny, create your own recipe
      If you ain't livin' accordin' to dirty then you stressing me
      "And who are you?" Who me? I'm the mayor
      And any problems you got, I live up there
      "Where's that?" The house on the hill, welcome mat of fur
      When you pass by that thing, be polite and don't sturr

      [Chorus]

      Yeah
      There's no, way, yeah [Repeat: x3]
      There's no, way,
