Lyrics

Reppin da Lord

Written By: J. True

Now in my beginning there was hennessey and plenty bud.
Those were just tricks of the devil so he could see me run.
And I had some so called friends that ah watch me drink, and leave me dumb.
Not knowing those dumb action's could have caused me not to see my son.
I had a couple friend's I knew that wanted me to stop.
But I was one of those drinkers that just couldn't let that bottle drop.
Alcohol poisoning 3 times, now my liver shot.
dumping toxins off in ya temple ah make ya body flop.
The same way that devil music makes ya body rock.
And have you standing in a line up cause somebody's shot.
Cause you was quick to get crunk, and now somebody's popped.
Man getting crunk is just another way to get got.
The devil so busy, it'll make you dizzy on the spot.
Don't let it take 20 years dog, for you to stop.
Cause on this Earth after God comes, gone get really hot.
And I don't want my soul standing here when my body Rots.

Chorus: What got me reppin da Lord?? ( What got me reppin da Lord) It wasn't platinum, it wasn't diamond's or gold. It wasn't, nothing but love that got me reppin da lord. (2x)

Now when the devil tried to kill me, I took it as flattery.
Cause if I wasn't important,
why would he be after me.
He's tryin to capture me by showing me places I rather be.
Doing all he can to distract me while the pastor preach.
So I got fired up, started working on this masterpiece.
Just sitting writing ammunition to make that laughter cease.
Satan take you lies , take your tricks, and take your fantasy's.
Cause when I'm in heaven, you'll address me as your majesty.
I know you hate that, but sorry that's how it has to be.
I'm going to make it through all your games, and all your travesties.
I know i'm cattle, but oh well, then a calf I'll be.
You better watch it when you form your claws to grasp at me.
Don't get caught up, don't you see that rod and staff by me.
You trying to trap me, by throwing all your cash by me.
When all I need is the Lord and grass by me.
When I say grass, I mean the word, now watch how fast I eat.

Chorus: What got me reppin da Lord?? ( What got me reppin da Lord) It wasn't platinum, it wasn't diamond's or gold. It wasn't, nothing but love that got me reppin da lord. (2x)

Some people see me saved.
Some people seen me gone.
The only thing they have in common is both gone see me grow.
They both gone see me moving swiftly closer to the Lord.
And how the holy spirit takes me, and just makes me whole.
They love to watch my show.
They love the way I flow.
Well if you love that, then you love the way that Jesus rose.
Cause he's the beginning and the end.
The now and all.
And cause of him I'm in a world of sin still standing tall.
That's why I'm down for him, and I ain't down for yall.
But don't get it twisted, I'm still here when you need to call.
But I ain't here to ball.
I'm here to stop your fall.
I'm here to keep you from entering in the devil's jaws.
And to be a effective, I can't worry bout what yall thank of me.
It's gone be crazy when God returns, just wait and see.
I'm repping God as if I'm the only one that came to be.
Fully Committed, cause alot of yall don't look saved to me.
I might not look like much, but take a look at me.
Wanna know why i'm so strong, because I'm trained to be.
And I don't have stupid habits that restraining me.
But I have a good God that's been training me.

Chorus: What got me reppin da Lord?? ( What got me reppin da Lord) It wasn't platinum, it wasn't diamond's or gold. It wasn't, nothing but love that got me reppin da lord. (2x)
