“It Ain’t Worth It” lyrics by Red October

 

1st Verse: I use to sell drugs, day in and day out
Yeah, yeah I was the man on the block no doubt
Mr. Untouchable, they knew what I was about
Mr. Irresistible, money always seem to bring the women out
Use to be up in the parties living large, blowing hella trees

Sipping mad liquor till dawn, then the deputy

Showed up, he said, “you're coming with me”
Threw the handcuffs on, thought I never would see this day come
In the end I can only blame one, I chose the wrong path
That's the path you stay away from.
Sitting in my cell, knowing I ain't perfect
Made a lot of money, but was it all worth it?
Nah, but it could have ended worse
Laying in a hearse, staring at the roof of the church
But listen up, make the right choices, you have to be clever.
It's never too late, you should get your life together, come on

 

Chorus:  Listen, drugs ain’t worth your life

They’ll cause you pain and strife

Gotta take control, do right, be strong

Don’t let it take your life

Don’t be blind

Drugs will cloud your mind

You gonna suffer, fam gonna suffer, don’t let it take your life

 

2nd Verse: Nah, not another fix, like punching bags leaking sand

Can’t take another hit, I had of enough of this

Gone for a week, return sparingly, only my sister touches me

‘Cause I’m funky from bumming sprees that see me run the streets

Oh, yeah, I’m good at math like you

Used to shoot 3-pointers, could write well, too

But I tried weed at 14, cognac, too

Dropped out 2 years later, pretended I had the flu

The way I was sticking needles in my arm

Pain medicine, that’s truly venomous, I’m a living ticking bomb

Took pills like I my head hurt, had coke in its powder form

That led to sleepless weeks, after rising at the crack of dawn

But I’m tryna change and stand tall, get my sunflower on

So Mama can say, “Now he’s home, my baby turned his willpower on”

My arm is itching, and I’m scratching, dog

But I promised Nana next time I see her, I would be cleaner, and I mean it

 

 

Chorus:  Listen, drugs ain’t worth your life

They’ll cause you pain and strife

Gotta take control, do right, be strong

Don’t let it take your life

Don’t be blind

Drugs will cloud your mind

You gonna suffer, fam gonna suffer, don’t let it take your life

 

Outro: Don’t let it take your life

Don’t let it take your life

Oh, oh, no
