COOLIO - The Winner lyrics

rate me

Verse One:

It's time to take you to its full potential

Peep this

and drop some game on the instrumental and

it's essenial that you listen close and better tell your folks

that the loc has spoke

first things first since your date of birth

you've been kinda confused about what your life is worth

50 million times your weight in gold

you gotta take control

cause fools don't live to be old

you can do anything that you want to do

all you got to do is to put your brain into it

take your time and educate your mind and

in the long run I'm sure you'll find that

if you walk the walk you can talk the talk

but don't wait too long cuz life is short

and remember, no matter what they tellin' you

if you try, you can be a winner too

Chorus (L.V.):

Keep on pushing

moving on up

everybody we're moving on up

moving on up

you're a winner

you gotta keep pushing

moving on up

everybody we're moving on up

moving on up

you're a winner

Verse Two:

Everybody rise men and women boys and girls

each one teach one but we can't save the world

all at one day you got to take it play by play

and once you're on the path

don't you ever go a stray

you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink

you can give a man some wizdom but you can't make him man feel


stich in time saves nine

early bird gets the worm

but all you can think about is gettin attention for your perm

if knowledge is power and power is knowledge, then

how so many idiots be graduating from colleges

better the B-side than the be gotted fool

than to speakin to move all out

you know what I'm talking about

when opportunity knocks you better let him in and sit him on down

and try to be his friend

in order to be a professional first you got to be a beginner

but if you keep on pushing you can be a winner


Verse Three:

Red yellow black white or brown

if every mind their business we can all get down

it all starts and on

coz once they're grown they're gone

and once they're on their own their own

you got to leave them alone

be a leader but if you can't be a leader

make sure your leader is a damn good teacher and

imagine if you was in a car and your life was wasted

somebody was on your back and you had to give him some space

put the petal to the metal and match at low

but make sure you stay in your lane

and go strof to strof

we don't need no penaltys or eliminations

or disqualifications

what we need is penetrations

now what you heard before but sometimes life is what you make it

I ain't the one thats known for fakin or perpetratin

if Albert was an Einstein

and Phillis was a Diller

and Michael Jackson was a thriller

then you could be a winner
