"Envious" as written by and William Robinson Jr.....
I had to clear my mind 'cause they're envious
You know that some things just don't change
Started rumors, spread lies about me
Tried to decompose my name

See, the shady sisters they be watchin me
I got shady n****s gettin next to me
Try to get some of this, see what I'm about
Thinkin I'm an easy prey and they can dog me out

But I tells them no
I'm trying to be all I can be
It's kind of funny 'cause they keep on
Talkin trash about me
They know nothin bout me
So tell me why

Why is everybody so envious
You know that envy never dies
Need to raise up off of me and worry 'bout yourself
Not the way I live my life (Oh)

Why is everybody so envious
You know that envy never dies
Need to raise up off of me and worry 'bout yourself
Not the way I live my life

See, they envious about the moves I make
I ain't afraid to take a chance
See, they envious because I can't just stop
Even envious about my man

While they're busy talkin', I just keep on walkin'
'Cause it doesn't mean a thing
See, your sticks and stones they may break my bones
But the words will never hurt me

'Cause I let it go
I'm trying to be all I can be
It's kind of funny 'cause they keep on
Talkin' trash about me
They know nothin' 'bout me
Tell me why

Why is everybody so envious
You know that envy never dies (Envy never dies)
Need to raise up off of me and worry ?bout yourself
Not the way I live my life (Way I live my life)

Why is everybody so envious (Oh...oh...)
You know that envy never dies (No, no, no)
Need to raise up off of me (I) and worry 'bout yourself (I)
Not the way I live my life (Way I live my life)

Why is everybody so envious (Oh...)
You know that envy never dies (No, it never, never dies)
Need to raise up off of me and worry ?bout yourself
Not the way I live my life (Way I live my life)

Why is everybody so envious (Ooh...ooh...)
You know that envy never dies
Need to raise up off of me and worry ?bout yourself
Not the way I live my life

Tell the truth about ya
So I'm better off without ya (Better)
Now that I'm gone (Stronger), need to leave me alone
(Need to)
I'm strong on my own (Strong on my own), think I need
You, you're wrong

Want to tell the truth about ya
So I'm better off without ya (Yeah, yeah)
Now that I'm gone, need to leave me alone (No, no, no, no)
I'm strong on my own, think I need you, you're wrong

Why is everybody so envious (Why is everybody so envious)
You know that envy never dies (I don't understand)
Need to raise up off of me and worry ?bout yourself (I
Don't understand)
Not the way I live my life (Those shady sisters they be watchin me)

Why is everybody so envious
You know that envy never dies (Why is everybody so envious)
Need to raise up off of me and worry 'bout yourself
Not the way I live my life

Why is everybody so envious (Mind your business)
You know that envy never dies
Need to raise up off of me and worry 'bout yourself
(Really need to mind your business)
Not the way I live my life

Why is everybody so envious (See, your sticks and stones they may break my bones)
You know that envy never dies (But your words, words will never hurt me)
Need to raise up off of me and worry 'bout yourself
Not the way I live my life (No)

Why is everybody so envious
You know that envy never dies
Need to raise up off of me and worry ?bout yourself
Not the way I live my life

Why is everybody so envious
You know that envy never dies
