Sam - Lyrics

High life
We livin' that high life
Luxury
High life
Luxury
We livin' that high life
By now you should know how a sip feels

He say, "One more chance,"
He say, "One more chance"
He say, "One more chance,
You won't forget it"
He said, "One more chance,"
He said, "One more chance"
He said, "One more chance,
You won't regret it" (Yearly)
He say, "One more chance,"
He said, "One more chance"
He said, "One more chance,"
Like he Biggie (Biggie)
Say it one more time,
I don't stand in line
Got my drive in overdrive
I work overtime and
He take half of mine
Yeah, my uncle like the
Middle man that's stealin'
On the side to survive
They say taxes
Gonna pay for the plan
I think Sam takin'
Grams out the bag

Uncle Sam takin' grams out the bag
I think Sam takin' grams out the bag
Uncle Sam takin' grams out the bag
Kinda hard for a nigga tryna stack

High life
Yeah
What are taxes, for real, though?
We livin' that high life
Don't let 'em try to Wesley you
You get rich, they gon'
Try to Wesley you

What bracket that you in,
Yeah, all of that depends
See the taxes pay the
Government to build a new bridge
See they take from the rich,
Give to the poor and sick
And I can't lie,
I been on both sides of the fence
See, the education
Levels 'round here don't exist
Taxes pay 12 but
Don't pay 'em to kill the kids
What it is?
That was just a cellphone in his hand
I think Sam takin' grams out the bag

Uncle Sam takin' grams out the bag
I think Sam takin' grams out the bag
Uncle Sam takin' grams out the bag
Kinda hard for a nigga tryna stack

High life
Yeah
We livin' that high life

A tax is a mandatory financial charge
Imposed upon a taxpayer
By a governmental organization
In order to fund various
Public expenditures
A failure to pay, along with evasion
Or resistance to taxation
Is punishable by law
If you make more than half a million
You make over five hundred thousand a year
Sam want thirty-seven percent of that
Which is almost forty percent
Which is almost fifty percent
I remember, I been in the
Game a long time so
I knew a lot of people, you know
Prior to bein'...
Prior to the fans really
Realizin' who I was, and...

And one day, I told,
I told Puff, I said...
You know, that's
When I first started gettin'
Some money, I'm like
"They want me to pay
Like two million in taxes"
That boy Diddy said,
"I had to pay a hundred"
He said, "But I gave 'em
A hundred and five
You know what
I'm sayin', just in case"
Right then I knew
I needed to dust my shoulders off
And keep movin'
High life
