"Good Life (feat. T-Pain)" as written by Faheem Rasheed Najm, James E. Ingram, Quincy Jones, Kanye Omari West, Aldrin Davis, Mike Dean and John Legend....
Like we always do at this time
I go for mine, I got to shine
Now throw your hands up in the sky
I g-go for mine, I got to shine
Now throw your hands up in the sky

I'ma get on this TV mama, I'ma
I'ma put shit down
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, I'm good

Welcome to the good life
Where niggaz that sell D
Won't even get pulled over in they new V
The good life, let's go on a living' spree
Shit they say the best things in life are free
The good life, it feel like Atlanta
It feel like L.A., it feel like Miami
It feel like N.Y., summertime Chi, ahh
(Now throw your hands up in the sky)
So I roll through good
Y'all pop the trunk, I pop the hood, Ferrari
And she got the goods
And she got that ass, I got to look, sorry
Yo it's got to be cause I'm seasoned
Haters give me them salty looks, Lowry's
50 told me go 'head switch the style up
And if they hate then let 'em hate
And watch the money pile up, the good life

Now I, I go for mine, I got to shine
Now throw your hands up in the sky
Now I, I go for mine, I got to shine
Now throw your hands up in the sky

I'ma get on this TV mama, I'ma
I'ma put shit down
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, I'm good

Welcome to the good life
Where we like the girls who ain't on TV
Cause they got more (Ass than the models)
The good life, so keep it coming' with the bottles

Till she feel boozed like she bombed out Apollo
The good life, it feel like Houston
It feel like Philly, it feel like D.C.
It feel like VA, or the Bay, or Ye
Ayy, this is the good life

Homie, tell me what's good
Why I only got a problem when you in the hood
Like I'm new in the hood, the only thing I wish?
(I wish a nigga would)
He probably think he could, but, but
I don't think he should
50 told me go 'head switch the style up
And if they hate then let 'em hate
And watch the money pile up, the good life

Now I, I go for mine, I got to shine
Now throw your hands up in the sky
Now I, I go for mine, I got to shine
Now throw your hands up in the sky

I'ma get on this TV mama, I'ma
I'ma put shit down
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, I'm good

Have you ever popped champagne on a plane
While getting' some brain
Whipped it out, she said "I never seen snakes on a plane"
Whether you broke or rich you gotta get biz
Having' money's the everything that having' it is
I was splurging' on trizz
But when I get my card back activated
I'm back to Vegas cause
I always had a passion for flashing' before I had it
I close my eyes and imagine, the good life

Is the good life better than the life I live
When I thought that I was gonna go crazy
And now my grandmamma ain't the only girl calling me baby
And if you feeling' me now then put your hands up in the sky
And let me hear you say hey, hey, hey, ooh
I'm good

    General CommentI think the lines are "Havin' money's not everything, not having it is" and "but when I get my card back activated"

    Other than that, good job

    General CommentOnce again, T-Pain is everywhere. Not a big rap or R&B guy but heard this song on someones MySpace and instantly recognized Kanye's voice (one of the only hip-hop artists I can respect). Considering it's T-Pain, I'm guessing this is a song of his new album?

    General Commentalot of the new songs off graduation have recognizable samples in it, i think he really picked up on them again after producing some Common tracks, like 'the people' where he sampled "Long Red' by Mountain and "We Almost Lost Detroit" by Gil Scott-Heron. i really really love graduation though, and between this song and 'kiss kiss' by Chris Brown, i think T-P is on the rise. that chris brown track is still lame lyrically, "my anatomy is bird-like", but i guess t-pain let chris brown borrow the computer voice effects for it. it's a great dance track, but it's still chris brown, ya dig!?

    oh and
    has anyone made the connection that "Us Placers" from can't tell me nothing is a Thom Yorke sample?

    god it took me like a week to figure out, and i just happened to listen to the Eraser and was like DAAAAAAMN.
