Be Thankful for What you've Got

By Undakova


William De Vaughn Sings:


Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
Gangsta whitewalls
TV antennas in the back
You may not have a car at all
But remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall


Just be thankful for what you've got
Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin' the scene
With a gangsta lean
Gangsta whitewalls
TV antennas in the back



You may not have a car at all
But remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got


Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin the scene
With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh
Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin the scene
With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh
Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin' the scene
With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh


Undakova Rhymes:


In this life you must be thankful for what you got


While you rising to the top.


You could drive a Cadillac


Rims spinning while you stop


Or you own a bicycle


And you chain it to the lock


To my high school kids


Thinking they gone drop


Out of school, cause they think it's cool


Hanging on the block


I spit true school slang when I talk


it really doesn't matter


if you famous or you not


Don't believe the hype


have you thinking that you not


A god body


Like you don't have angels that'll watch


Your body


Can’t deny you anything you want


first you must value


every single part


Of the struggle that we go through


Tearing us apart


Got us thinking that material things


A heal our hearts


That ain't in our cards


I can tell you that right now


without reading any palms


See we had everything from the pyramids and carved


In the temples our names


And was seriously involved


In a whole trade


That was pitifully dissolved


Over time, And the Sand swallowed cities that evolved


Over thousands of years


Our History is gone


The gold survived


But the mystery is unsolved


Could we take this in the afterlife?


that's your thoughts


But your spirit inside


know that ain't within the course


You can't take it with you there


So why do you even care?


I am not saying live in despair


Just be thankful while you're here


Cause it don't last long


Before you know it your life will fast forward


Thankful for my mom and my dad


Up above


and Thankful for all my friends


I show love


Thankful for my time on this I live earth live


Chilling in Brooklyn no kids


But I got vinyl that my mom and dad left


cause they couldn't bring it with him


and William de Vaughn was what my father use to spin


I am so grateful for him


and I so grateful for those of my past


without them we wouldn't know to walk this new path


Standing tall


Holding our heads so high


Be thankful for what you got


Yall know the reason why
